Father's Day 2008, the 5th for a Dad without his daughter, Mary

Update, June 15, 2008- Chris Pratt has been incarcerated for nearly one full year after his arrest in June 2007 for domestic violence. As you know, in January 2008 he was sentenced up to 15 years in prison for crimes against another girl-friend. If you have information on Mary's disappearance you are urged to contact the police.
Clifford Marshall again must endure the anguish of his 5th Father’s Day not knowing the fate of his daughter, Mary Denise Lands.
The new police chief in Marshall has still not yet been appointed although officials claim that progress in the investigation continues to be ongoing.

Sgt. McDonald has stated he also wants a chief appointed so he can return to his investigative duties on Mary’s case. Upon the official appointment the family plans to immediately meet with the new Marshall police chief to discuss the investigation that has now lasted over 51 months. A "person-of-interest" has been named yet there still have been no charges filed. We continue to receive new tips and information, which are examined and shared with law enforcement. Today, we are all aware that one witness in our community could bring this to an end. Please follow your conscience, you need to make that call.
For those who have asked, Cliff & Anita are in the process of moving this week but will still reside in Marshall, Marshall. Our focus is
"Justice for Mary" and we will never give up until that has been accomplished and Mary is at peace. We will bring her home.
If you would like to call Cliff and say hello for Father’s Day, the telephone number is 269.781.4508. Mailing address; PO Box 63, Marshall, Michigan 49068.
Cliff & Anita receive much comfort from the continued support of so many friends in the community.
Together, we will bring Mary home and
"we’re not going anywhere" until the job is done!

Mr. Hallacy; Mr. Busher; Det Scott; Det. Saleman; Sgt. McDonald; & others at Michigan State Police. You are all fathers too.
Help Clifford Marshall and let this be the last Father's Day that he has to wonder, Where is Mary?
You can get it done and bring her home. Find the evidence to keep Mary's killer in prison.

It was a nice showing by police at the Mary Lands vigil in March but what are they doing now? Was this just for electioneering?

It makes one wonder, doesn't it?

I read in the paper that Sgt McDonald is looking forward to resuming his work on Mary's case once a new chief is in place. So, is there anyone from MPD currently working on this case? If not, it is just as well because frankly, they did a rotten job of it.

Anonymous said...

Saw Sarge the other day driving around SERVING AND PROTECTING the good citizens of Marshall. It boggles my mind how he still has a job with MPD. Many of us here in this blog believe that he has the information to bring Mary home to her family. Many of us believe that he betrayed his best friend forever, Mary. Many of us here believe that the truth will eventually come out and we will all see how Sarge was a player in all of this. If I was Sarge, I'd come clean now and save my ass.

give it up. Give up you sonbs. Chris is getting out of jail on appeal bail and will be found innocent. Sue Harrington & Norene Parker lied and cops know it. He never hit anyone and don’t drink or sell drugs. You all lied. He will be out and forgive those who lied against him and be model for his kids. He will get custody.
You should all rot in hell for lies. Govenor has talked to lawyer about release with time served.

Anonymous said...

It is interesting that many of you believe that Sarge is the one who has the info to solve Mary's case. It's no coincidence that his relationship with Chris continued after Mary's disappearance. Even though Chris was a person of interest in this case, ole' Sarge continued to socialize with him.

Now, why was this allowed? It certainly wasn't to get a confession from Chris that he murdered Mary and then turn this info over to law enforcement. If that was the case, Chris would have been convicted a long time ago.

So, why was Sarge not reprimmanded for continuing to socialize with Chris? What kind of idiot would put his badge on the line? There have been a number of citizens who have come forth to Jim Carlin and to law enforcement who have provided info about Sarge and his after hour activities. They have talked about his relationship with Chris and what this "friendship" was based on. My question is why wasn't there an internal affairs investigation on this officer? I believe, as many others do, that:
1) Sarge knows what happened to
Mary
2) His affiliation with Chris was
based on more than
friendship.
3) MPD turned its head on what
was going on
4) Sarge should be investigated
for his continued relationship
with Chris Pratt

We all know about Chris's drug connections and how he made his real money. There are many of us who don't have our heads buried in the sand and who are looking at this fiasco of a case with open eyes. We know that someone is withholding info and that person is Sarge.

So, it's up to State Police whether to pursue this or not. I, for one, am sickened and disgusted with the whole group of law enforcement right now. I agree with those who have wondered if those members of law enforcement who showed up at Mary's vigil are truly committed to solving this case. We sure haven't heard much from them since.

To anonymous 6/19 @ 5:27 pm:

What you said was the craziest bunch of crap that I have ever heard. Where are you getting your information from...Chris???? Chris Pratt lies and that is a known fact. Chris will never be found innocent for what he did to Norrene and indirectly, Su. You are out of your mind to believe such a bunch of BS.

The Sarge was doing dope deals at the trailer park on F Drive & 69. Everyone knew it and no one ever got busted.
It was nothing but a show for public and getting elected. Again where is new chief in Marshall? I heard they were bringing in another barney fipe. There is no law or justice our Marshall.

Anonymous said...

what about the leather jacket at the flea market?, what about records in purse that Chris gave Anita? What about Mary's car, What about all the beatings he gave other woman, What about drug deal stories of Pratts. If it walks like a duck, it quacks like a duck, TThis wacky duck people is a killer who has cot away with murder. And you will all put up with it.

Christopher Luke Pratt has been incarcerated in jail or prison for one full year tomorrow, June 24, 2008.
He is paying the piper for what he did to Norrene Parker, 5-15 years in prison.

Today, Shane Lorenz was caught by the police. Whether or not, Shane is directly involved in Mary Lands' disappearance and death, we can be thankful that another piece of vermin is off the streets.

Thank you for the information.
I verified that Shane Lorenz is presently being held in the Calhoun County Jail on 3 charges; with bail on each, $1,200.00, $1,000.00, & $250.00.
If it is not posted, he will be arraigned at a video-conference in the District Court next week.
You said it absolutely correct. It is yet another piece of vermin off the streets of Marshall, Michigan…at least for awhile. How long will it be for the rest to be put away?

We keep appealing to those who know something to come forward. Unfortunately, most of those who know something have no conscience and no sense of right vs wrong. The only way that they might help is if they get something out of it like lesser charges. That being said, I still hold out for someone to come forward and tell the truth. It is good to hear that Shane Lorenz is behind bars where he belongs. Another piece of scum off the streets. The way he's headed in his life he will end up in prison just like his good buddy Chris.

You're right about Sarge being the worst. He has not only betrayed Mary, he betrayed Mary's family and the citizens of Marshall. He, as a police officer, has sworn to serve and protect. All he has served and protected is his own interests. May he rot in hell!

This jerk can get away with anything. His new wife and him are photographers and have there own business. Last week he had her taking pictures with the police car and a motorcycle while he was in uniform on duty. All kinds of poses for the camera with the cop gear.
Yeah, there’s no crime in Marshall so he might as well work his photo business not doing cop business.
He should be fired. How many chances does this stooge get to keep a gun and badge that he carries? He obscene and a joke.
Where’s the acting head of Marshall? Fire this idiot, and while you are doing it ask him more questions about Mary?

Amen. Can anyone here answer the simple question why Sarge still has his job? He is giving MPD and the city of Marshall a real bad name. Don't fool yourselves into thinking that people outside of Marshall haven't heard about all the crap that's gone on here.

how does a shift sergent supvisor in uninform on duty get away with working with his wife holding camera equipment??

At least she wasn't doing her own business on duty like TJ.

I, too, think that drugs are tied up with Mary's disappearance and murder. We all keep wondering why Sarge still has his job. Most would have been fired for a lot less. Maybe, he is being protected because of what he knows and who all he could bring down. Just a thought.

Is Mary really the focus of this investigation or is her disappearance and murder sharing the focus with drugs and those dealing them?

Billy Jack, I think that Sarge knows the answers also. It is time for him to step up and come clean. Otherwise, when the truth finally comes out and it will, he may find himself an accessory in all of this and end up worse off than if he told the truth in the first place.

Anonymous said...

I agree with the thought that Sarge must have something on someone in MPD. There is no other rational explanation for why he has gotten away with all of his crap. I also agree with the blogger that said that "serving and protecting" is definitely not MPD's motto.

Anonymous said...

What is wrong in this investigation is that finding Mary is not the priority. The law enforcement people want to bring the other factors into it. It is much too complicated a case to do this. Although drugs play a huge role in this story, they are not the central issue here, Mary is. A lot of people have volunteered to help find her; however, their volunteerism has been rejected.

The other thing which is bothersome is that a certain MPD sergeant has a big role in this disappearance of Mary yet no one is forcing him to talk. Why is that? I think that it is safe to say that he has information which could bring other officials down. That is why he continues about his business doing things which under NORMAL circumstances , would bring censure from his superiors.

The truth will come out and yes, Mary will have the last word. Keep Mary's family in your prayers.

It seems to me that Sarge is being protected and we all know why. So, acting chief, why is it that you won't question Sarge? Is it out of loyalty as he was your former partner? Is it because he has something on other members of law enforcement?

I gotta tell ya, acting chief, that you are being seen as protecting Sarge by many in this community. It might be wise of you to let the State Police handle this case. You are too close to Sarge to be objective. By the way, tell your friend Sarge that we all know that he has a BIG part in this case.

Is this all just because of Mary Lands case and fact SCHAEFER lost Pratt case in court?

As a resident of Marshall I want to know about police standards in my city and all agencies? This particular officer can't even wear a vest protector because none fit him. Why is everyone else required to wear them? He can barely get into the door of Lori's Cafe for those donuts. He is a disgrace as a police officer and a resident of Marshall. He tours around Marshall like he is some Hell's Angel with an illegal helmet. Why has he not been given a ticket? I would get one if I wore the same type. No wonder the new chief has yet been named. Who would want to work for a city manager like Chris Olsen and lead this band of misfits. Some of our officers are good and try to do an honest day's work but then there are the bandits with guns and badges. The new chief will have his work in cleaning up this mess; if it ever can be cleaned up? And then there is Mary Lands? What about that?

Let me tell you what a great police dept Marshall has. Yesterday, when we were hit with that bad storm, the hospital called the police dept to see if the city was under a tornado warning. It was important to know because they had to get their patients to a safe area. The response of the personnel at MPD was "we don't have time to check into this. We're too busy." The hospital called back saying it needed to know and the answer the second time was "We're having problems with communications right now. A lot is going on." Again, no help. This is the kind of stuff that people in Marshall have come to expect from their police dept; those who are here to SERVE AND PROTECT their community. Right!!!??? So, how could one possibly expect this very police dept to solve Mary's case? It will never happen with them. It will take another law enforcement agency to solve it. What a shame!

Anonymous said...

Let's be clear here. This blog is about Mary Denise Lands. The person of interest in this case from the start is Christopher Luke Pratt. Now, the Pratt family can deny it all they want but this is the truth. Another truth is that Mr Pratt has a history of domestic violence and that is why he is currently in prison. That is also why Mary Lands is not with us anymore. She was another victim of domestic violence at his hands.

Many have contended that Christopher Pratt is not smart enough to have done this on his own and he needed help to have gotten away with it for this long. After all, there have been many accounts of Chris telling people that he did it but no one would ever find her. He needed advice and he needed protection. He has friends in law enforcement who have provided him protection. One of his friends, Sarge, had been seen with Chris numerous times after Mary came up missing. Sarge has had his own personal issues but yet is still employed at MPD. He, too, is being protected or he would have lost his job a long time ago.
So, my question is "why would these two be protected?" I think we all know the answer and it's one which doesn't sit well with any of us.

It is laughable that someone from the Pratt family paints both Jeff and Chris as decent, loving people who don't deserve the comments made by bloggers here. From what I have heard, Jeff has also taken a swipe or two at his beloved from time to time. I wonder if he learned this from big brother.

I also agree that Jeff would probably never rat his brother out. A strange kind of loyalty, huh? As far as the accusations made by the Pratts that we here are all liars, that's like the pot calling the kettle black, isn't it? After all, Christopher Luke Pratt is the biggest LIAR of them all.

When all is said and done, Mary will have the last word and Chris Pratt and those who helped him murder Mary will answer for what they did to her.

After all, Marshall is such a quaint little town with a long history. Nothing bad ever happens here. No unsolved murders, no drugs, no crimes. Did you ever wonder why the Marshall paper never puts names in about the crime stories? What's the big deal? The people have been arrested. Put in the names so we see who it is. Or is the editor and owner of the paper been told to reign it in too?
Yes, the new top gun at MPD will have his hands full. Who would want that job with all the stink?

To the acting chief of MPD:
Without a doubt, there is something very wrong in MPD. It might take an investigation by the Attorney General's office to straighten things out. It seems to me that if I were the acting chief, I would begin to put my department in order. If you don't, you and your colleagues will face a multitude of legal issues such as corruption and involvement in illegal activities such as drug distribution. We all know about one of your employees and their activities. If I were you, I would fire him. Stop protecting him. The Attorney General's office will not be kind to you or your department. Do not fool yourself into thinking that this will never happen sir. It will if things are not straightened up. It's been the Lands case which has opened many people's eyes. Your department's handling of this case has been abysmal. There is enough talk in your town which has gotten the notice of some in the legislative branch already. They have the ability to inform the Attorney General's office. You and your department are being put on notice to straighten things up.

Whether a person has helped for 4 days, 4 weeks, 4 months or over the last 4 years they are the real heroes for the family. Without the support of these many people Clifford & Anita would have no comfort in knowing that Mary will be brought home and justice will be delivered to those involved in her disappearance and murder.

In church this morning I heard a gospel of St. Mark about the suffering that people endure and why God permits us to suffer in so many ways? I suppose we must just all have faith, I do. We must all have faith that someone will do the right thing for the Marshall’s and point us to the exact lovation of Mary's body. We must then have faith that a fair justice system will hold someone accountable.

Lady Justice, (Lustitia-Justitia), the Roman Goddess of Justice and sometimes, simply "Justice") is an allegorical personification of the moral force that underlies the legal system. Since the Renaissance, Justitia has frequently been depicted as a woman carrying a sword and scales, and sometimes wearing a blindfold. Her modern iconography, which frequently adorns courthouses and courtrooms, conflates the attributes of several goddesses who embodied Right Rule for Greeks and Romans, blending Roman blindfolded Fortuna with Hellenistic Greek Tyche.

Justitia is most often depicted with a set of weighing scales typically suspended from her left hand, upon which she measures the strengths of a case's support and opposition. She is also often seen carrying a double-edged sword in her right hand, symbolizing the power of Reason and Justice, which may be wielded either for or against any party. As stated above, Lady Justice is often depicted wearing a blindfold. This is done in order to indicate that justice is (or should be) meted out objectively, without fear or favor, regardless of the identity, power, or weakness: blind justice and blind impartiality.

We must continue to have faith that Lady Justice will soon be able to weigh the evidence in the Mary Lands case and we will no longer have to ask the question, When will we have justice for Mary?
In the interim…. to the perpetrator and accomplices of this crime, you can run but you can’t hide. Lady Justice will get you!

Well said! Mary will be found with or without the help of law enforcement and those involved will be held accountable for it.

If Mary Lands' parents were not of modest means and were rich and had political connections this case would have gone to trial already. Mary would have been buried properly and the people in prison who killed her.
If it was a relative of Hallacey, MacDonald, Mike Olsen, Chris Olsen, a commissioner, a trustee, rep, senator or some other big pol it wouldn't have been blown from the start.
Money in Marshall talks. The reason lady justice is blindfolded is she doesn't want to see some people in Marshall. They are evil and ugly.

ABSOLUTELY!!!!! I would like to see Hallacy and those others who are running for office this year make a legitimate, meaningful attempt to help with this case.

Anonymous was right when they said that it depends on who you are in Marshall as to how you will be treated. Such a pretty little town with so much ugliness beneath the surface......

I have not read of Mary's tragedy on Enquirer online site? We should all spread the word there and in other forums.

I have heard stories about Jeff Lindsay, Vanessa's old man being involved with Pratt and Bryant and others in Marshall. He loves the weed.
