Finders Keepers, Losers Sleepers

The Finders is another one of those new age cults whose history dates back to the late-1960s. Yes, starting cults was quite the "thang" back then. The thing is, there are a ton of them out there--more than most of you might realize. Of course, not every self-proclaimed group is necessarily a cult. Take the Children of Thunder, for example. Glenn and Justin Helzer, along with their female companion, Dawn Godman, murdered five people in August of 2000. In anticipation of their murder spree, they even "purchased three dogs" to eat their victims remains. Needless to say, their "grisly tale of death" threatens to outdo the Brothers Grimm. I will however save that particular story and the rather curious tidbits that never made it to the MSM (or Crime Library, for that matter) for another day. As for real cults, you simply do not hear about those unless someone tilts and does a Jonestown, Heavens Gate, or Waco. That, or they are caught pulling a Manson or found to be involved in other illegal activities... such as child sex-slave trafficking.

As with the Children of God,[1] the Finders have had name changes as well. Their original name was the Keepers and their founder was Marion David Pettie. No one outside of the members, immediate families, and communities where they lived had ever heard of them. That is, until Tuesday, February 7, 1987 when a story was published in the Washington Post regarding a multi-state investigation of an alleged child sex-slave ring.[2]

"Cursory examination of the documents revealed detailed instructions for obtaining children for unspecified purposes. The instructions included the impregnation of female members of the community known as the Finders, purchasing children, trading, and kidnapping. ... One such telex specifically ordered the purchase of two children in Hong Kong to be be arranged through a contact in the Chinese Embassy there. ... Other documents identified ... a keen interest in terrorism, explosives, and the evasion of law enforcement. ... There were also a set of instructions which appeared to be broadcast via a computer network which advised the participants to move "the children" and keep them moving through different jurisdictions, and instructions on how to avoid police attention."

-- Ramon J. Martinez, Special Agent, USCS, February 7, 1987

By Monday, April 13, 1987, investigation into the Finders case was "disappeared" into the government black hole of "secret" classifications.

"The individual further advised me of circumstances which indicated that the investigation into the activity of the Finders had become a CIA internal matter. The MPD report has been classified secret and was not available for review. I was advised that the FBI had withdrawn from the investigation several weeks prior and that the FBI Foreign Counter Intelligence Division had directed MPD not to advise the FBI Washington Field Office of anything that had transpired."

-- Ramon J. Martinez, Special Agent, USCS, April 13, 1987

Outside of a 1993 US News and World Report article, a Kenn Thomas 1998 interview[3] with the founder, and a later posting by Thomas regarding Patch Adams[4] very little is really known about this group. Thus, leaving rich ground for speculation of the CIA sponsored child sex-slave trafficking kind. Then again, perhaps Danny was onto something...
