On Monday, the Kalispell Police Department arrested Cynthia Abcug who is wanted for second-degree kidnapping and conspiracy in Douglas County, Colorado.
Cynthia Abcug Arrest
According to the Flathead Beacon, the Kalispell Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation received a tip that Abcug was in Kalispell. Law enforcement pulled Abcug over on U.S. Highway 93, just north of Kalispell. Abcug is currently being held at the Flathead County Detention Center.
Redacted charging documents from Douglas County claim Abcug planned to kidnap her child from Child Protective Services with an unidentified male in October. Prosecutors claim Abcug had weapons and had been going to a gun range to prepare for the “raid” to get her child.
Cynthia Abcug Vs Melissa Diegel
Abcug is well-known amongst several groups of sovereign citizens who often get involved in CPS and other criminal cases while pushing nonsensical legal advice on anyone that will listen. She is accused of Munchausen by Proxy but her supporters claim her child was “medically kidnapped,” similar to supporters of Melissa Diegel in Arizona.
Diegel is accused of causing physical symptoms to her two daughters which caused them to receive unnecessary medical procedures from 2011 to 2013. She was arrested in Florida and extradited back to Arizona earlier this year. Just to give an example of what her supporters believe, family activist Malinda Sherwyn entered an Amicus motion on behalf of Diegel that claimed she was arrested because she was too close to exposing the “Secret Handshake Club.”
According to Sherwyn, those in the Secret Handshake Club “usually have a suitcase full of money in their car and nobody knows where it came from.” Sherwyn is one of many that seem to believe Diegel is going to be killed in order to protect these conspiracy-based secrets.
Supporters Of Cynthia Abcug
Both Diegel and Abcug share similar supporters that choose to follow conspiracies over fact. One of those supporters is Field McConnell, who some social media users claim aided Abcug in the plan to conduct her “raid” to get her child back. McConnell is currently in jail in Wisconsin awaiting extradition to Broward County, Florida for threats towards Florida-based attorney Kim Picazio. Arrest records show McConnell was arrested in Plum City, Wisconsin on November 4.
McConnell began threatening Picazio due to a conspiracy started by wanted fugitive Timothy Holmseth. Holmseth is running from serious legal charges related to harassing and threatening Picazio for years due to an evidenceless conspiracy he concocted accusing the attorney of being a Satanic child trafficker with ties to Ukraine. Court records show that last year Holmseth had violated a final judgment of injunction over 320 times in the period of a year.
Holmseth received legal advice from Kirk Pendergrass and Chris Hallet who give self-taught nonsensical legal advice on social media and also claim to be part of the Pentagon’s human trafficking task force, an agency that does not exist.
