Lexi got in touch with me end of August 1996. Supposedly you (Jami) were a close friend (little platonic sister) who was beaten up by her then ex-husband and came to him in California for help. You guys supposedly had too much scotch in the hottub and you got pregnant, which he didn't find out until he came to Idaho to help you get settled in a new place.
Supposedly he was on the way to Atlanta to be with me, but he just couldn't leave you there and then you found out that you were pregnant. (Of course he didn't tell me, that he was the father). You know how he is - he just kept me hanging on, was just about to leave etc., was on the way, had just one more little thing to take care of etc. In the meantime I had submitted his name (R. Alexander Klein) to a website, the exposed fraudulant Navy Seals. End of December his name showed up on the website. I confronted him and he broke off contact. There were also so many other inconsistencies that made me think, that he was a con man. In my last email I remember writing: I bet Jami's child is really yours!
Anyway, end of October, 2005 he contacted me out of the blue and wrote me, that he'd seen an article aobut me and was so proud, that he'd known me. It took me by surprise and I thought, that it took a lot of guts on his part to cotnact me again. So, maybe I had done him wrong and maybe there are explanations.
Of course, he came up with great explanations: He hadn't really been a navy seal, but with another unofficial group and since it wasn't well known he called himself a Navy Seal, because it's the closest to what he was and people would understand. His spinal cancer had come back and he had been told that he couldn't do Chemotherapy. He thought he was dying and didn't want to pull me into that.
When I found out about "the baby" and her age he explained, that this was just one drunken night and that this was only a written agreement between you two to stay together for a certain number of years for "the baby" benefit and then split up. That this was only a marriage on paper...that you had postnatal depression and didn't care about the child...that he basically brought her up for several years....that you kidnapped her from Marco Island and flew to Pensacola.
Two years ago "the baby" was supposedly attacked by a pack of dogs and her face was all torn up. He saw her in the hospital and blamed you for not jumping in between her and the dogs. There was a cop there who pulled a gun on him and he beat up the cop and 3 others as well. You then put a restraining order on him and he was put in jail.
While he was in jail, Fred Levin, a Pensacola attorney, came up to him and offered to represent him. Now he has SIX Federal lawsuits running against the city of Pensacola. It's about Father's rights and treatment of prisoners in jail etc. (Of course Fred Levin has never heard of him). The City had already offered him $10,000,000 to settle, but he didn't accept, because it wouldn't have changed anything. He wants to have it come to trial, so that he can insist on a Federal Oversight Committee put in place to watch the City.
I actually met him on Dec. 3rd, 2005, when I came down there for the weekend. And, yes, I did fall head over heels for him. I had already fallen for him by email and phone, just like years before then. He is just so convincing. He'll look you straight in the eye while he lies his head off. All along I asked a lot of questions about inconcistencies and he always had good answers. There was always in the back of my mind, that he might be lying, but I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
He suggested that he'd come to Atlanta December 17th.
A few days before he sent me an email, asking me for my forgiveness, because he really coudn't come that weekend, that it would have to be the following. One of his lawyers had a daughter, that went to the same class as "the baby" and they had set up a christmas party at there house and "the baby" was invited. They would smuggle Lexi into their 2nd story office where he could watch the kids play. (I believe, that was the weekend Charlene moved in or maybe it was the following). Under tears he told me later on how much it hurt him to see his pretty little girl who now was all difigured from the dog bites.
During the week there were supposedly Court dates for his father rights. During the hearing on Friday your lawyer informed the court, that you have left Pensacola and moved to Texas. That you had abducted "the baby" fromt he jurisdiction of the court. So, he now had to take his motorcycle and drive to Houston and find out where you were. He had a federal judge on standby once he showed pictures etc. On Tuesday he informed me, that he had located you and that he had hired an attorney in Houston and you'd be served.
Then on Thursday he felt, that he was getting sick so he couldn't come that weekend. And he wasn't really allowed to use Dion's and Cindy's phone. Since he also couldn't use their computer, since they hadn't paid their DSL bill, I mailed him a cellphone, so that he could still communicate with me. A buddy of his was renting a car and Lexi was going to use it to drive to Atlanta on Wed. 1-4. On Wed evening he had meetings, so he was going to leave Thu morning. I was getting kind of upset. But he promised. On Thursday there were suddenly meetings with a new lawyer regarding. "the baby", so he'd leave in the afternoon.
I got a call in the afternoon, thinking he's in Atlanta and he told me, that he was on the way to Jacksonville, FL because his company owed him some kind of bonus check and he had to pick it up and leave from there in the evening to Atlanta. In the evening he called and said, that he's going to dinner with some people there and he would call me when they're finished and leave then. I didn't hear from him and thougth something happened to him, because he should have arrived.
He called Friday morning Jan 6th, and said, that he had too much to drink and didn't want to risk it, but that they were cutting the check right now and that he'd leave shortly. In the afternoon he called and I thought he'd finally arrived in Atlanta, but he said, they're still cutting the checks and they're having problems.
Anyway, it keeps going, of course he never came, because he was living with Charlene by that time and was just keeping me on to keep the cellphone, I assume.
I felt this relationship wasn't going anywhere and there wasn't any communication. I decided to come down there Jan. 20th to see, if things would be different in person. He asked to make it the following weekend. I did come down Jan. 27 and we stayed at the Red Roof Inn next to The University Mall, because he was under surveillance by the City, because of his lawsuit. So, he didn't want them to see me with him (to protect me, of course).
He told Charlene, that he was in Panama City on a job. He actually talked to Charlene while he was in bed with me, telling me that he was talking to the daughter of his landlords, who had decided to stay in his trailer. The fuses blew and she didn't know how to get the electricity back on.
He borrowed money from me, which he was supposed to get back to me 1-31. Supposedly his company had problems with the wiring instructions and then it turned into money orders that were lost in the mail etc. I finally gave an ultimatum: Get the money to me tomorrow or it's over. Of course I didn't get it. Then I took a close look at the phonebill and started calling phone numbers, that he's called. THat's how I found out about Charlene. I bet the next phone bill, which I should get today or tomorrow, probably has other women's numbers on it.
His stories are just so complex and he keeps them straight for the most part, that it's hard to believe, that they're made up.
