TO: NATHAN DANIEL BENSCH, MY SON

FROM: YOUR LOVING FATHER, WALTER DAVID BENSCH
 

DEAR SON,

THIS WEB SITE HAS BEEN PRIMARILY SET UP FOR YOU. I GREATLY FEAR THAT YOUR MOTHER AND YOUR CURRENT STEP DAD WILL IGNORE THE COURT ORDER AND MOVE YOU AWAY FROM ME AND KEEP YOUR LOCATION A SECRET. I WILL ALWAYS KEEP TRYING TO BE A FATHER TO YOU IN EVERY WAY THAT I CAN.

I LOVE YOU. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU BELIEVE AND KNOW THAT NONE OF WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU AND ME IN THIS NIGHTMARE OF A DIVORCE AND CHILD CUSTODY BATTLE IS IN ANY WAY YOUR FAULT. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU BE ABLE TO FIND ME. THAT IS WHY I WEAR THE T-SHIRT WITH THIS WEB ADDRESS ON IT WHEN WE VISIT. IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT THAT YOU, AND THOSE THAT SURROUND YOU AND ME NOW AND IN THE FUTURE, HAVE THE TRUE FACTS ABOUT HOW YOU AND I WERE SEPARATED FROM EACH OTHER, IF THEY SUCCEED.
 
 

HERE IS THE STORY OF OUR LIVES.

1. YOUR MOTHER AND I WERE MARRIED TO EACH OTHER ON AUGUST 22, 1981 AT JESS AND MAXINE PAYNE'S HOUSE. YOUR MOTHER WORKED AT THE POST OFFICE THEN, AND I WORKED AS AN IRON WORKER.

2. I ADOPTED YOUR HALF-SISTER, HEATHER, IN 1986 BECAUSE I LOVED HER AS MY OWN CHILD AND I WANTED HER TO HAVE THE BENEFIT OF WHAT HEATHER CALLED "A REAL FATHER" IN HER LIFE. I WAS HOPING THAT I COULD MAKE THINGS BETTER FOR HER SINCE SHE WAS SO HURT ABOUT BEING IGNORED AT TIMES BY HER BIOLOGICAL FATHER.

3. THEN, YOU WERE BORN ON JUNE 19, 1989 AT WICHITA GENERAL HOSPITAL IN WICHITA FALLS, TEXAS. WHAT A THRILL AND A PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU AS MY SON !

4. I CARRIED YOU AROUND ON MY RIGHT ARM. I TRIED TO CARRY YOU EVERYWHERE I WENT. AT FIRST, YOUR HEAD FIT IN THE PALM OF MY HAND AND YOUR FEET NEARLY REACHED MY ELBOW.

5. YOU WERE HAPPY TO GO PLACES WITH ME AND I WAS GLAD FOR YOU TO BE WITH ME.

6. HEATHER, YOU AND I WENT EVERYWHERE WE COULD TOGETHER. SHE WAS GLAD FOR YOU, TOO, AND SHE HELPED ME TO SEE AFTER YOU.

7. YOUR MOTHER, PENNY, WORKED AT HER JOB AT THE POST OFFICE. SHE WORKED SHIFTS AT THE POST OFFICE THAT DIDN'T ALLOW HER TO SPEND MUCH TIME WITH YOU AND HEATHER.

8. THEN SHE BEGAN WORKING A REGULAR 8:00 A.M. TO 5:00 P.M. SHIFT AT THE POST OFFICE. HOWEVER, SHE WOULD GO OUT WITH HER FRIENDS UNTIL ABOUT ELEVEN O'CLOCK AT NIGHT, WELL PAST YOUR BEDTIME. MOST OF THE OTHER NIGHTS SHE WOULD COME HOME AND LOCK HERSELF INTO HER BEDROOM SAYING THAT SHE NEEDED TO CATCH UP ON HER LOST SLEEP. THAT LEFT HEATHER, YOU AND ME TO TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER WITHOUT ANY HELP FROM PENNY.

9. SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY, IN THIS TIME PERIOD, YOUR MOTHER DECIDED THAT SHE DID NOT WANT TO BE MARRIED ANYMORE. WE WENT TO MARRIAGE COUNSELING IN 1991, BUT PENNY INSISTED ON A DIVORCE EVEN THOUGH I DID NOT WANT A DIVORCE.

10. IN JANUARY 1992, PENNY PREPARED TO GET A DIVORCE FROM ME WHETHER I WANTED A DIVORCE OR NOT. SHE ENTERED MY SAFE DEPOSIT BOX AT THE BANK AND LOCKED UP OUR MAIN SAVINGS ACCOUNT SO THAT I COULD NOT HAVE ACCESS TO SOME OF MY OWN MONEY. BY DOING THESE THINGS TO ME SHE HOPED TO PREVENT ME FROM TRYING TO STOP THE BREAKUP OF OUR FAMILY. THEN SHE WENT TO CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES AND REPORTED THAT I HAD SEXUALLY ABUSED HEATHER AND THAT I HAD PHYSICALLY ABUSED YOU IN 1990 AND 1991.
 
 

UP FRONT, I WANT YOU TO KNOW DIRECTLY FROM ME THAT PENNY'S CLAIMS THAT I ABUSED YOU AND HEATHER ARE LIES.

IT WAS HER PLAN TO CLAIM CHILD ABUSE SO THAT SHE COULD MORE EASILY WIN THE DIVORCE FROM ME. SHE SAID SHE WOULD DROP THE CRIMINAL CHARGES OF CHILD ABUSE IF I WOULD NOT RETAIN A LAWYER.

11. BUT LIES TEND TO TAKE ON A LIFE OF THEIR OWN. EVEN THOUGH DR. R. MENCHACA (THE DOCTOR THAT EXAMINED HEATHER FOR CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES AT GENERAL HOSPITAL IN WICHITA FALLS) FOUND THAT HEATHER WAS STILL A VIRGIN AND HEATHER, HERSELF, SAID THAT NO ABUSE HAD OCCURRED, PENNY AND THE CPS CONTINUED TO KEEP ME FROM HAVING VISITATION WITH HEATHER.

12. PENNY MADE IT CLEAR THAT SHE TOLD THESE LIES IN ORDER TO BE SURE THAT SHE WON THE DIVORCE AND THAT SHE GOT CUSTODY OF YOU AND HEATHER. SHE ALSO BECAME ANGRY WHEN I HIRED AN ATTORNEY TO DEFEND MYSELF. SHE PROMISED TO RUIN MY CAREER IN LAW ENFORCEMENT.

13. YOU ALSO NEED TO KNOW THAT PENNY'S FIRST HUSBAND (HEATHER'S FATHER) WAS ALSO ACCUSED OF CHILD MOLESTATION.

14. PENNY WOULD HAVE LOST A FAIR DIVORCE PROCEEDING. SHE KNEW THAT AND SHE DID NOT WANT THE STIGMA OF HAVING HER CHILDREN (YOU AND HEATHER) TAKEN AWAY FROM HER.

15. PENNY FILED FOR DIVORCE FROM ME ON JANUARY 24, 1992. BASED ON THE LIES, SHE TOOK CUSTODY OF YOU AND HEATHER AWAY FROM ME. THE COURT ORDERED THE REGULAR STATE VISITATION.

16. OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS I DID MY BEST TO GET TO VISIT WITH BOTH YOU AND HEATHER EVERY POSSIBLE MINUTE I COULD. PENNY WOULD NOT ALLOW EVEN ONE EXTRA MINUTE BEYOND WHAT THE STATE ORDERS. SHE WOULD DO THINGS (LIKE NOT SEND YOUR CLOTHES AND PERSONAL THINGS WITH YOU) TO MAKE OUR TIME TOGETHER MORE DIFFICULT.

17. YOU AND I AND HEATHER WENT ON TRIPS TOGETHER. WE LAUGHED TOGETHER. WE PLAYED TOGETHER. AND, YES, WE CRIED TOGETHER. NOTHING IS PERFECT, BUT WE MADE THE BEST OF OUR SITUATION.

18. THEN PENNY BECAME JEALOUS OF MY RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU AND HEATHER. BUT SHE COULD NOT FIND A WAY TO SUCCESSFULLY INTERFERE IN OUR LOVE AND CARING AMONG THE THREE OF US (YOU, HEATHER, AND ME).

19. SO PENNY BEGAN TO TELL MORE LIES. SOME OF THEM WERE SILLY LIKE THE ONE WHEN PENNY SAID THAT I WAS STEALING HEATHER'S MONEY. THE TRUTH WAS BROUGHT TO LIGHT IN THE HEARING ON JANUARY 24, 1995.  EVIDENCE WAS PROVIDED AND PENNY WAS FORCED TO ADMIT SHE WAS THE ONE WHO WAS BASICALLY CLAIMING HEATHER'S MONEY AS HER OWN.

20. WHEN THESE KINDS OF LIES WERE INSUFFICIENT TO BREAK THE RELATIONSHIP AMONG YOU, ME AND HEATHER; PENNY TURNED TO DARKER LIES.

21. THESE DARKER LIES AROSE AT THE SAME TIME THAT YOU STARTED ASKING TO COME AND TO LIVE WITH ME IN 1995.

22. PENNY'S DARKER LIES WERE THAT:
    A. I WAS HAVING SEX WITH YOUR STEPSISTER AND THAT SHE WAS PREGNANT.
    B. I HAD BEEN SEXUALLY FONDLING YOU.
    C. I HAD BEEN SEXUALLY ABUSING HEATHER.

23. IN RESPONSE TO THESE LIES:
    A. ASK HER YOURSELF. SHE HAS NUMEROUS DOCTORS' REPORTS.
    B. I DID NOT ! AND KNOWING THAT PENNY HAD THREATENED ME WITH
        A CHILD ABUSE CHARGE IN THE PAST, I SAW TO IT THAT SOMEONE
        WAS WITH YOU AND ME FOR EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY VISITATION
        YOU AND I HAD FOR YEARS. I CAN PROVE IT. AND I HAVE THE NAMES AND
        ADDRESSES OF EACH PERSON WHO STAYED WITH YOU AND ME
        DURING THOSE VISITATIONS.
    C. LOOK AT DR. MENCHACA'S REPORT

24. BUT, AGAIN, LIKE I TOLD YOU BEFORE, LIES TAKE ON A LIFE OF THEIR OWN. THE POLICE INITIALLY BELIEVED THESE LIES THAT PENNY TOLD. THEY ILLEGALLY CAME INTO DEE ANN'S HOME ON TURTLE CREEK ROAD AND TOOK MOST OF MY PROOF THAT I WAS INNOCENT. THE EVIDENCE THAT THEY TOOK ALSO SHOWED THAT PENNY HAD NOT ONLY LIED, BUT THAT SHE HAD ALSO MISTREATED YOU.

25. BEFORE THEY FIGURED OUT THAT PENNY WAS LYING, THE POLICE PUT ME IN JAIL ILLEGALLY. THEY HAD TO LET ME OUT OF JAIL BECAUSE THE CHARGES AGAINST ME WERE BASED ON LIES.

26. DETECTIVES FROM THE WICHITA FALLS POLICE DEPARTMENT ENTERED AND SEARCHED DEE ANN'S HOUSE, WHICH WAS OUTSIDE THE CITY LIMITS OF WICHITA FALLS. THEY ILLEGALLY ARRESTED ME OUTSIDE THE CITY LIMITS. MANY MISTAKES WERE MADE. PEOPLE WERE EMBARRASSED. I WAS FORCED TO ACCEPT VISITATION WITH YOU AT THE POLICE STATION. IT WAS ALSO THE ONLY WAY THAT I COULD GET THE EVIDENCE BACK THAT WILL BE INDEXED IN THIS WEB SITE FOR YOU. I ALSO LOST MY JOB AT THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT BECAUSE I WAS GIVEN THE CHOICE OF GIVING YOU UP AND KEEPING MY JOB OR KEEPING YOU AND LOSING MY JOB. THERE WAS NO CHOICE. I GAVE UP MY JOB WITH THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT. EVEN THOUGH PENNY WAS SUCCESSFUL IN GETTING MY BADGE, I WAS GLAD TO DO IT IN ORDER TO KEEP MY CONTACTS WITH YOU.

27. PENNY SAW TO IT THAT THESE VISITS, AS YOU WELL KNOW, WERE VERY DIFFICULT BECAUSE PENNY AND HER HUSBAND, JOSE, DID THINGS LIKE REFUSING TO LET YOU EAT OR DRINK ON THE SATURDAYS THAT YOU HAD VISITATION. THEY AUDITED EVERY WORD THAT YOU AND I SPOKE TO EACH OTHER. IF YOU SAID ANYTHING CONCERNING YOUR HEALTH AND WELL-BEING, THEY PUNISHED BOTH OF US BY FORCING YOU TO LEAVE. I AM ALSO SO VERY SORRY OUR FREE PLAY AREA WAS REDUCED TO AN AREA LESS THEN THE SIZE OF A JAIL CELL.

28. I MADE A COMPLETE, AND OFTEN A VIDEO RECORD OF THESE INTERFERENCES SO THAT NO MATTER WHAT YOU HAVE AND WILL BE TOLD, I HAVE PROOF OF WHAT REALLY HAPPENED. IN FACT, IN TIME, ONLY IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO WHEN YOU ARE OLDER, I HAVE ASSEMBLED THE PROOF IN YOUR CASE FOR YOU TO REVIEW FOR YOUR PEACE OF MIND.

29. IN TIME YOU WILL NEED TO KNOW WHY YOUR LIFE HAS BEEN SO CHAOTIC. YOU MIGHT EVEN THINK THAT IN SOME WAY ALL OF THIS WAS SOMEHOW YOUR FAULT. YOUR PEACE OF MIND ABOUT ALL OF THIS IS THE PARAMOUNT REASON THAT I HAVE GONE TO SUCH LENGTHS TO PRESERVE THE EVIDENCE AND TO PUT IT AT YOUR DISPOSAL IN THE WEB SITE AS WELL AS IN OTHER PLACES.

30. IT MAY WELL BE THAT YOU AND I WILL BE SEPARATED BY MORE OF PENNY'S LIES. IT COULD BE THAT I WILL NOT LIVE LONG ENOUGH TO BE REUNITED WITH YOU SO THAT I CAN PUT YOUR QUESTIONS AND YOUR MIND AT EASE. IF THAT OCCURS, ALL OF THE PROOF HAS BEEN CAREFULLY COPIED AND DISTRIBUTED TO PEOPLE WHO KNOW THAT I AM INNOCENT AND WHO BELIEVE IN ME AND WHAT I AM TRYING TO DO FOR YOU. IF I AM DECEASED BY THE TIME THAT YOU FIND THIS SITE, LEAVE A MESSAGE ON THIS SITE AND THEY WILL CONTACT YOU.

31. I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT I HAVE ASSEMBLED THIS SITE NOT ONLY FOR THE ABOVE REASONS, BUT ALSO TO TELL YOU THAT:
    A. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS.
    B. WHENEVER AND WHEREVER WE CAN PICK UP OUR RELATIONSHIP
        AGAIN, LET ME KNOW.
    C. NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE OR WHEN, I WILL SEND FOR YOU.
    D. CALL ME COLLECT AT (940) 691-4812 ANYTIME.
