Hope4Closure—P.I. Fund

P.I. FUNDS: My name is Renee Martine. Some of you may, or may not know the struggles I've had with law enforcement agencies to seek a proper investigation into the MANY unanswered questions surrounding my brothers death. After years of DIY-P.I. work, I've discovered quite a LOT of substantial red flags relating not only with my brothers death, but a total of THREE deaths in this family unit (Father, Mother, Son) .

In 2013 my brother was discovered dead—local authorities ruled it a suicide. Upon the process of putting my brothers estate into probate I came across a LOT of unsettling discoveries regarding how he might have actually died (NOT by suicide) and more importantly, why he died. While his estate was roughly a quarter million, I began finding WTF moments only days after his death which lead me into a DIY investigation. Daily discoveries, and unbelievable occurrences unfolded into what I believe to be murder, starting with my brother, proceeding with his ex-wife (the baby mama) being brutally shot in the face only a month after his death, and their sons mysterious drowning following that—all of which left HEAVY question marks.

My discoveries opened a very tightly shut door to questions of one's very sorted and violent past, which made the whole ordeal obvious to investigate further—but small towns, small minds . . . all of which strikes the urgency cord for this MUCH needed Private Investigation to reopen this cold case and proceed with strong and factual evidence—basically I need the smoking gun. I am so close to discovery which will force the hand of local authorities to STOP discounting  highly suspicious activities, do their F'ing JOBS and re-open this case.

I've been unsuccessful at getting authorities to listen and act over the years—pretty much a passing the buck kind of deal. I've contacted without success to my findings; the local Sheriff's department, DA's office, Attorney General's office, FBI, but they all have the same line of defense—you need a Private Investigator . . .so frustrating! I've discovered a P.I. in my area that has jurisdiction in both states, as these crimes took place in a state I do not live in. I feel confident this P.I. can bring it all together, find the smoking gun and bring some justice, peace of mind, and shed some much needed light and resolution for me and my family. This man has 35 years in investigative law enforcement services before becoming a P.I., specializing in Cold Case Homicide with great success—PERFECT, right? . . . now all I need is a little help to retain his services.

After only an hour of briefing at the consultation, this P.I.’s interest was beyond peeked! He requested I leave my extensive DIY P.I. research and findings portfolio with him, even before officially retaining his services—so it is safe to say  he is interested in this case. I just want justice and a proper investigation—I don't think it is too much to ask. Here is where you come in.

P.I. work is long and intricate, and answers take time and money. Due to lack of immediate and available funds to hire this P.I., he has graciously offered the majority of this case to be absorbed by his non-profit organization, but there will still be expenses I cannot pick up quickly—which is his initial fee of $10,000.

I am hoping you will help me bring in a proper investigation to my brothers death, and understand how, if any, what the mother and son had to do with it.

Thank you from my soul for your thoughts and consideration to this funding campaign—whether you donate or just share this link—thank you <3  Your donation will allow me to hire a P.I. that will resurrect my brothers case and re-open it for a VERY CLOSE and THOROUGH investigation—one in which never took place the first time around—thank you.

In much appreciation—Renee

Today is my nephew (Rodgers son) two year death anniversary . . .please help me to get some straight answers to these deaths—if I could point a finger, it wouldn't point to "accidental death."
RIP Ryan
