12-26-2019 submitting complaint to FBI Agent Thomas Reinwart one last time.

From: songboat@gmail.com 12-26-2019

To: FBI Thomas Reinwart

Thomas,

The only way the US Attorney could not recognize this as a case of conspiracy against right and deprivation of rights under color of law would be due to you not presenting the facts given by the evidence. I am going to give you the facts one more time. I want to speak directly with a rep of the US Attorney for the southern district of Iowa. You have not and can not provide me with any conflicting evidence that my allegations are not correct. Here it is one more time. You must read it in its entirety to understand the unprecedented conspiracy that was committed against me including that without these conflicts of interest  this could have never have happened to this degree of torture.

INTRODUCTION  Complaint alleging Public Corruption, Request for investigation of violation of State and Federal civil rights.

This case concerns my neighbor Mark Conlee’s redevelopment of a legally nonconforming property purchased from the Mayor of my city. He began redeveloping the property by adding a new non compliant garage. He trucked in fill dirt and not only was the massive illegal roofs rotated to drain storm water onto my property he set the grade of the elevated fill dirt to drain down onto my property. The five building permits are illegal, the building official refused to address my concerns in regard to the nuisance drainage the redevelopment caused my property as his duty requires. When this neighbor discovered he could not get the illegal redevelopment recorded on the county plat map, he determined the remedy was to eliminate me. He began unlawfully applying chemicals onto my property. It took very little time before the chemicals caused me a severe skin condition. I verbally told this man not to apply anything to my property, and requested an incident report from the chief of police. Needless to say that I had developed a full body severe skin condition before the 16 months in it took the Chief of police to give me the incident report. This was so severe that it was unbearable to wear clothes. I hired an attorney to sue the City. He was on board with the law at our first meeting. I was questioning him about his knowledge and he passed. The liability was the City. One of the building permits was not signed by the builder and had been forged at a later date  from the original on file. The other permits are illegal based on the fact that this was a legally non conforming property. For those who don’t know there are very stringent rules that apply to redevelopment of such properties. As commented by Mayor Dinwiddie on public record. You’re not allowed to build any structure larger than the existing structures. This guy even went so far as to put in a garden pond that drained onto my property. I am a single middle aged female. I owned my property outright having purchased it in 1995. I opened an upholstery shop that I operated from one of the existing structures on my property. I could not have been happier with my ideal of acquiring my American Dream.

The chemicals continued nonstop. I was surprised when I got served notice that I was being sued by this neighbor for “loss of enjoyment of his property”. It seems that the legally installed privacy curtain that I installed on my side of the 300′ common boundary was too much for him to bear. He could not see out of his windows. Does he even realize that he was looking into his actual side yard? His lot was too narrow to set the oversized structures on. When I spoke to my attorney I was clear that my intent was to sue the City. He advised we would sue both parties adding that the City is where the money was. I know, the liable party is where the money is. I have a long line of paternal parents that held authority titles for a neighboring city. I did not know why he wanted to sue the neighbor to but that is why I hired an attorney. I did not question it. I have never needed an attorney and I am unfamiliar with the court process. The letter of intent my attorney sent the next day did state that if there were no remedy in 10 days he would file an injunction. Upon receiving the letter, the neighbor removed all evidence of an existing berm he had illegally removed. He illegally changed, the frontage of his home to now be the city alley. Apparently, the re-positioning of his home made him believe that my backyard was now his backyard . He added a little roof over the side entrance door to make it look as though his frontage was the street but it clearly was the alley now. This being one of many counts of perjury he committed in the civil court case

I continued to go to council meetings each time a new Mayor was elected. That would be an unprecedented  four Mayors in 5 years. As a citizen being affected by a nuisance drainage as a result of the non-compliant redevelopment, I had the duty to notify the building official that there was a problem. I tried to call him on the telephone, I left messages on his answering machine. He never returned my calls.  My attempts to address the city council were in vain, I had the floor and there would be a distraction caused by the former building official. I was never allowed to speak about my complaint or try to get the proper authority to make him stop applying the chemicals. He would not stop and no law enforcement would file a complaint against him for trespassing.

I believe that if I had been a male, he would never have been brave enough to ignore my request. The Chief of Police did advise me that he did not want to file a complaint against him because he did not want to make him mad. The civil court case he filed against me was dismissed citing my right to enjoy my property. I felt a sense of relief assuming the chemicals would stop based on the citing of my right to enjoy property I could not have been more wrong. This made him mad. He suspiciously is elected to city council for the sole purpose of “getting me back”. The chemicals continue without hesitation. I hear nothing from my attorney in regards to the case against the city even though I email him multiple times. I went to give him a payment and mentioned that the Mayor actually took my side in regards to the privacy curtain I installed. He advised me that the reason the Mayor took my side was that he had received a letter from my attorney. My attorney had lied to me all this time. He never filed the complaint against the city. He never did anything on my behalf. He did suppress evidence on behalf of this neighbor. This guy and the police chief physically altered Railroad ties I had placed along the common boundary to try to divert the excessive storm water from my property to the city drainage ditch. This was a direct act in contempt of court. There was no reason but to prove to me that he was not going to abide by the court of anyone else’s ruling. He had to have my property.

The county attorney advised me that he would violate his duty to prosecute all criminal offenses and he would decide who is prosecuted in his county. He then proceeds to file criminal charges against me several times for fabricated laws. Laws that do not exist, but I cannot get one for criminal trespassing against this neighbor whose intent is clearly to cause me serious injury or death. I suffered severe pain for five long years. I knew I was dying. Only when a former city police chief now moved on to the Sheriff Dept stopped by my home to advise me that this neighbor had no intention to cease and desist with the chemicals did I know I had no option. I had either to shoot this neighbor dead or sell my home business and property for enough funds to repay the debt I owed my friend for supplying the funds for my basic living expenses over the 5-year period and pay for my final expenses. I knew I was dying.

I could not leave this earth without repaying my friends well over $10,000 dollars. My condition only increased, I  could not bear to have anything touch my skin the pain never stopped. It was 24/7, I had lost my eyesight by this time also as a result of the medical treatment administered to offer my skin some relief. This neighbor has more than less of the traits to determine a psychopath according to Hare’s list. I now know the reason the police chief or anyone else for that matter did not want to make this guy mad. However, for me to be the sacrificial lamb and live to tell about it, no way. It is the duty of law enforcement to protect the rights of the people in these United States. They take an oath to do just that, the criminal acts committed by this enterprise of local government officials is unbelievable. However, the evidence does not lie.

I did survive and I am now seeking compensation for my damages. According to the Storm water management handbook, the courts see cities as having deep pockets in not complying to the State building code and drainage laws. Now I am looking for law enforcement and prosecuting attorney  that are committed to protecting the rights of their fellow citizens. https://poisonedbymyneighborfromhell.com What is truly unbelievable this group of thugs being afraid to do their duty to the degree that they would rather commit serious criminal acts against a woman than make this man mad. I am concerned for the entire community. This man showed no empathy when he saw my skin. His intent was to acquire my property at any cost. Something’s not right here. I have known these individuals most of my life and I have never witnessed or heard rumors of any of them committing criminal offenses on someone else’s behalf. Mayor Dinwiddie clearly had a personal financial gain when he sold this otherwise worthless piece of property to Mark Conlee.  Didn’t Mark Conlee know that redeveloping a nonconforming property is not an option? the city building official intentionally allowed the illegal construction, and avoided his duty to address my concerns. Lee County Attorney Michael Short recently retired and I believe the shuffling of the new County Attorney is finished so I believe it should be possible to hold those who have committed criminal acts be prosecuted and I should be compensated for being the victim of the criminal acts that were committed against me. As it stands, I am forced to watch these individuals living large from the guts of my property. I sit here with chronic health problems in a small section 8 rental house that is not satisfactory for my lifestyle or sewing machine. I do not know how long I can contain my patience. It has been an extended period. The chances I will be diagnosed with cancer are overwhelmingly high percent based on the studies on glyphosate. These people have new homes and garage no worries. My achieved American dream has been ripped (taken) from my hands causing injury with no compensation, no acknowledgement much less an apology. In fact if you asked anyone of the participating authorities they would most likely just respond that I am “crazy”. That information was given to the Mayor by a family member who has mental issues with narcissistic personality disorder.  If you read my webpage, https://poisonedbymyneighborfromhell.com  you will find much more evidence supporting this story and the others who conspired to deprive me of my rights under color of law. There just is no other way to view or excuse these events. I will not be denied my right to private property no matter who or when justice is served. In the end I will be compensated for the suffering I have been made to endure at the hands of these self serving government impostors. They need to be held accountable by the Justice Dept. They need never to hold another government position as they have proven capable of serving the ultimate sacrifice to those who they have taken an oath to protect.  It makes no difference that this is only one individual that has harmed their duty to protect the rights of all equally. If I had not fled I would have paid the ultimate price for simply having owned the property a psychopath purchased from the Mayor.

This cannot be allowed in the USA under any circumstances. I certainly do not intend to be the first and only citizen who has been subject to such brutal criminal acts by my local government officials. There is no more time for excuses this needs to be addressed. These crimes are in violation of the Constitution of the State of Iowa and The Constitution of the United States of America. I am requesting an investigation into the evidence that has never been reviewed by any authority.

Sincerely,

Melody Boatner

Keokuk, Ia.

Unprecedented, complex,  HARD COPY EVIDENCE PROVING MY ALLEGATIONS OF CONSPIRACY AGAINST RIGHTS. DEPRIVATION OF RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW, GROSS NEGLIGENCE, USING CHEMICALS AS A WEAPON WITH INTENT TO CAUSE SERIOUS HARM OR DEATH, DOCUMENT FRAUD, MAIL FRAUD, PERJURY, MAKING FALSE POLICE REPORTS, CONFLICT OF INTEREST, TAKING OF PROPERTY WITHOUT JUST COMPENSATION, CRIMINAL TRESPASS, CONTEMPT OF COURT, DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER, COLLUSION, INTENT TO CAUSE PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL STRESS. ABUSE OF POWER, OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE. NONCOMPLIANT PROPERTY REDEVELOPMENT, NUISANCE DRAINAGE COMPLAINT, KNOWINGLY MAKING FALSE STATEMENTS,. FAILURE TO KEEP FROM HARM,

Original property layout

This building permit is fraudulent as it is impossible to construct this building from pouring a slab to complete finish in the timeline of 5 days. It is incomplete as there is no fill dirt amount, setbacks or other information required by the State of Iowa. This document is folded for scanning purposes. Boatner was initially informed that this structure was non compliant because the owner intended to build a living quarters in the second story.

After a suspicious fire supposedly destroyed the existing double-wide mobile home this building permit was issued. Fraudulent building permit issued by City of Montrose, Ia. Not signed by the builder, no fee charged, no fill dirt or setbacks recorded. This permit is also folded for purposes of scanning.

When the city building official refused to address my concerns about a nuisance drainage issue according to city ordinance I contacted Lee County extension agent for an opinion. He wrote a letter to me and a copy to Mayor Dinwiddie including a copy of the Iowa drainage laws. There was no response.

City clerk Cirinna altered the fee charged on this original permit to conflict with Lee County Ext. Agents observation.

Water standing in yard

Water standing in the yard. Note upper right hand corner retaining fill dirt on neighbors new garage.

Ground in crawl space saturated with groundwater caused by increased stormwater runoff from neighbors new redevelopment and illegal removal of existing berm foundation washed out. This side of the house had never received water like this because of the existing berm that Conlee removed unlawfully.

According to expert Bob Dodds anything existing for more that 10 years is considered existing, Conlee illegally removed the berm that had been put in place in 1972 for the purpose of protecting Boatners home from stormwater runoff.

Neighbor’s allegation that my nuisance drainage was caused by the city street is false. This photo shows crawl space toward the street is dry. Dark area of soil is saturated from side of home that faces neighbors property

Common boundary supporting neighbors applied chemicals to my property (on the right side of photo). This boundary is 300’ long and there was never any action by law enforcement to stop the application of chemicals to my property.I began to report the unlawful acts in late April 2005 and nothing was ever done on my behalf until I was forced to escape from them in Aug 2010.

Conlee’s opinion was that a ditch on his property would be unsightly. Boatner believes Conlee has a severe personality disorder. He thinks he is above the law. He committed perjury in his testimony under oath in Conlee vs Boatner as he knew full well Boatner wanted a ditch dug because the stormwater diverted to. The wire fence was installed by Conlee to keep Boatner from digging a ditch down the common boundary.  If the building codes were recognized publicly, Conlee would have never been allowed to expand the size of the new structure larger than the existing structures. The Mayor and building official were well aware of the legality of Conlee’s redevelopment that is why they refused to address her grievances. They violated their oath of office. They conspired with Conlee to allow Boatner’s State and Federal RIght to be violated. They conspired with Conlee to use chemicals as a weapon to eliminate her from her property.

I did not notice the chemicals until the the grass was getting green in the spring as soon as  I did notice them I knew what was causing the “rash” on my shins

I advised neighbor not to apply anything to my property and requested an incident report from Police Chief Brent Shipman

Spreading

Spreading, Condition continues to get worse. No action from law enforcement to protect e from harm or my Constitutionally protected private property rights

Poison continued to be applied to my property on a routine basis. By this time the “rash had developed into a full body severe skin condition that caused severe pain to the degree it was unbearable to wear clothes. Poison continues to be applied to my property without my permission against my control

I can think of no more brutal way to eliminate a neighbor. In the background is the Steel Roofing I had just purchased to put on my home. It was in no way my decision to move. This was heavy 1/4 “ j channel steel.

I had no authority to stop this neighbor from unlawfully applying chemicals to my property except to take up arms.

law enforcement has the duty to provide protection of my private property rights.

This felt more like a chemical burn. Boatner  was completely unable to function. This was an intentional brutal attack that have had serious lifelong effects

.

16 Months later I received this report that is completely inadequate from Police chief Brent Shipman. I refused this and told him I wanted one that was more specific.

9-16-2006  intentional untimely incident report requested by Boatner 16 months after the discovery of chemicals on her property. By this time it was too late the condition had become chronic. There was never any intervention from local city and county law enforcement to protect my right to private property. Police chief Shipman advised me that he did not want to make this neighbor mad. Lee County attorney dismissed the photo evidence and advised me that “Mark Conlee said” that he only applied the chemicals to his side of the fence.

Letter of Intent From Boatner attorney to Conlee

Boatner hired an attorney very early in this case, to file a complaint against the city of Montrose early on. Conlee commits perjury in the civil case Conlee vs Boatner also.  Steve Swan knowingly lied to her. He reassured her that he had filed the complaint against the City of Montrose. Boatner believes that Attorney Swan was so eager to take her case that it leaves to question whether arrangements were premeditated by Conlee and Swan for him to do just what he did, nothing except suppress evidence that is right here in this file. Suppress testimony of witnesses that he claimed were experts in their own right, but then did not ask a question to any of them. This case followed no standard procedures. What began as a simple nuisance drainage issue that could have been easily remedied. Turned into a criminal conspiracy all because one of the good old boys wasn’t smart enough to pay attention to step on in land developing. Site layout and drainage. His nonconforming lot he should have known has stringent laws in development. Mayor Dinwiddie, the seller of the property, acknowledges this in the public record.

How many cases are there in which the plaintiff offers the defendant an out of court settlement? Well in this case Conlee offered Boatner two out of court settlements. Both of which are ridiculous. Mark Conlee is a psychopath. Nobody in their right mind intentionally hurts another human being. In this case he was asked to stop applying the chemicals. He refused to stop. The reason he continued was for the purpose of eliminating Boatner.

First offer to settle out of court. Plaintiff’s offer to defendant is admission to guilt. Boatner’s attorney suppressed this from the court.

2nd offer to settle out of court. This was suppressed from the court. This offer is completely ridiculous being Boatner is not responsible for the new developments stormwater drainage.

This is the privacy curtain Boatner installed, it was within her legal right as there was no fence ordinance at that time. You can also see Conlee’s property is graded down toward her property. The existing berm prior to the redevelopment was located on the left hand side of this photo, Conlee has put some bricks where the berm used to be. You can see the Conlee’s new home has the roof rotated from the original home to divert stormwater directly onto Boatner’s property. Prior to the removal of the berm a heavy rain would develop a small pond in this front yard of the Conlee’s property. Boatner’s property received no stormwater runoff from the Conlee property.  The judge erred in what he stated Conlee’s witness actually stated in her testimony. She actually stated the her (Boatner’s) property NEVER received stormwater runoff from the Conlee property. Boatner’s attorney recognized this as a fact in an email exchange. No competent attorney could be so incompetent not to raise issue with what he acknowledges in an email to Boatner when she contacted him after receiving the decision. The attorney’s oath swears that he will represent the best interests of his client. Boatner’s attorney violated that oath. His action support intent to cause Boatner harm.

Finding of Fact

Finding of Fact,  The dismissal of Conlee’s this case only made Conlee more aggressive toward Boatner. Conlee decided he would get elected to council member. The timeline for announcing candidacy was not within the guidelines. We never got the decision on the civil case until the end of Oct.  I believe you must have your candidate announced before that timeline. Conlee went to the city hall every afternoon when he got off work for a week, and read the city codes before he announced. Conlee‘s personality true to itself, he gave her a thumbs up as she drove by one afternoon, indicating  that he had made a deal for his position and was going to be elected to city council. His intent as a council member was to force me to take that curtain down. He intended to harass me financially. Clerk Cirinna obediently began to take orders from Conlee. She fabricated an ordinance specially for Boatner .

The fraudulent ordinance indicated Boatner had to take the curtain down. Boatner pleaded not guilty. The case was dismissed by the City Attorney. There was not a word spoken to the court about the case. Correction the paragraph below the red line is fraudulent.

Footnote of the court order the judge noted the issues in this case had been remedied by a previous court of law.  These types of crimes continued along with the chemicals exposure until 2010. At that time Boatner’s condition had become dire. She also lost her eyesight. She was helpless to defend herself or her property. Conlee’s network of authorities did not waver in their malicious fight to acquire Boatner’s property.

Finding of Fact

The court ruling, citing Boatner’s right to enjoy her property meant she has been returned complete control of her own property.

According to Lee County Deputy David Hunold, who came to her home investigating a second of the same fabricated law complaint against her by Lee County Attorney Mike Short on behalf of  Mark Conlee.

The first complaint stated that Boatner had driven by Conlee’s home and given him the middle finger. According to Officer Hunold the Judge did not specify Mark Conlee was not allowed to continue to apply chemicals to her property. He could continue and he did continue to apply chemicals to her property. She had just been to court over this same allegation that she had given him the finger and it was dismissed. She never even got to see the judge. Mark Conlee in contempt of court did not show up for court.  He was on vacation in Florida. The newest Police Chief Karl Judd advised Boatner that he knew Conlee was on vacation and would be a no show prior to the court date.

These frivolous charges were made against Boatner by Lee County attorney Mike Short in State of Iowa vs Boatner. This 2nd complaint was altered from the original simply by adding the words “he is tired of this happening all the time” therefore bumping it up to a harassment charge. Someone should have advised the County Attorney that there is no law against giving anyone the finger. In Boatner’s opinion the judge would have commented that Conlee deserved for her to give him the finger. Boatner was still being denied a trespassing complaint against Conlee. As Officer Hunold was leaving her home she told him wait, she wants to file a complaint for trespassing, having just shown him the court document. Officer Hunold advised her that he was only there to investigate a complaint from Conlee that she had given him the finger. Lee County Attorney Mike Short had sent him in case there was a conflict of interest involved. There definitely was a conflict of interest in this case. This case reeks of  violations of Federal law.

May 23 2008   Mark Conlee assisted by Police Chief Shipman violates the civil court order. Somehow Chief Shipman feels he has the authority to overrule a court order and authorize Conlee  to alter the railroad ties Boatner had placed on her property along the common boundary to divert the excessive amount of stormwater runoff. Boatner’s property now receives 90% of Conlee’s stormwater runoff after the illegal property redevelopment. He pulled the plastic edging out that Boatner had installed, he pushed the ties out of alignment. You can see a broken staub in the foreground of this photo. The staub’s were broken off at ground level all the way down the row of ties. Boatner was putting myself in danger by being out in her yard to place these ties and edging as there were chemicals that had been applied to the entire common boundary. Boatner had no chance to secure her private property rights. Her only option other than to flee would be to shoot this man dead.

This photo is easier to indicate the broken staub’s and edging that was pulled from the ground and laying on top of the soil. This action was don’t in contempt of the civil court order citing Boatner’s  right to enjoy my own property. He never did this to the upper half of the property. He did this in the middle of the night. Earlier that day Conlee along the the Police Chief approached Boatner and informed her that he was going to move her railroad ties. Boatner went into her house and returned with a single shot pellet gun. Boatner stood guard and defended her property till after dark. Boatner is human. She was still trying to operate her upholstery shop business and did goe in the house to try and get some rest. The next morning this is what took place on her property. Several weeks later Conlee calls a false report into the police stating he heard shots fired from Boatner’s property. The purpose for the false police report was to know if Boatner had weapons. It is a violation of the law to make false police reports. There is no law that applies to Mark Conlee. You can see the amount of fill dirt that was brought into Conlee’s property by the retaining timbers on the left of the photo. He committed perjury in the civil case denying the amount of fill dirt he had trucked in.  As you can see Boatner’s property has mature trees and his property has nothing that would prevent him from installing a drain pipe to divert his stormwater to the city drainage ditch as required by State drainage law.

This is the finished illegal property redevelopment of Boatner’s neighbor. Completely not in compliance with state building code, Conlee went to get this recorded on the County plat map and apparently it was denied. This is the reason that he determined the remedy was to eliminate Boatner. It took 5 years of severe suffering, emotional and physical before she had no choice but to flee. The only other option she had was to shoot this man dead or flee. This was her home, business and property. It was apparent that Boatner or Conlee was going to die if she stayed, Due to the intentional negligence and conspiracy against her rights by local government officials She is still being denied justice. These government officials have been allowed to commit serious criminal offenses. why? Boatner will not go away, No way no how. Her assets were in her property, Her property has been forcibly taken. Her credit rating before Conlee came to the worthless lot next door was 760. Two trips to the ER in the first few days of this attack wiped her credit out. Then as a council member Conlee uses his position in an attempt to cause her more financial harm. By involving the City clerk, who has no problem forging documents of file or fabricating city ordinances. There is a slough of things the clerk performed that were criminal and ethical violations. Anyone who looks at this evidence sees that.

There is no excuse for the treatment of a human being as brutal as this attack waged against me. Boatner has EPA results and much more evidence that she has the right to submit. To date no authority has given her the opportunity.

Does anyone recognize a conspiracy against rights? Deprivation of Rights under color of Law? These are violations of Federal law.

Anyone who does not visually recognize that these oversized structures set sideways on the Conlee property has changed the frontage of his property to be the city alley is not qualified to oversee the first step taken when redeveloping begins, site layout and stormwater drainage.

Anyone who does not visually see the significant increased stormwater being diverted onto Boatner’s property is not qualified to oversee new property redevelopment.

Anyone who does not recognize the violations against Boatner’s State and Federal Rights please explain how Boatner’s rights have not been violated.

Boatner wants to know the process needed to redress grievances. Her attempt to get any answers from anyone has been in non productive. She is really been put through hell by the chronic skin condition and the loss of her eyesight.

Had she invoked her second amendment rights where would she be now? Would she have been found not guilty of murder and at home enjoy life as it was prior to Conlee purchasing the adjoining lot from Mayor Dinwiddie? Would she be in prison for murder. We will never know. We know that she is still burdened by the events that took place in violation of Federal law from Spring of 2005- Fall of 1010.  Her ability to enjoy life is blocked by the crimes committed against her by an entire local government subdivision. This cannot be dismissed as the basic fundamental rights are what we as Americans base our freedoms on.

Conlee vs Boatner Eqeq004300 This court record is full of evidence of perjury committed by Mark Conlee and his attorney Greg Johnson. Conspiracy against rights committed by Mark Conlee, Greg Johnson and Steven Swan ESQ. Still the court ruled in my favor even with the evidence suppressed from the court.

About Sheriff Weber

Sheriff Stacy Weber conspired with city clerk to hide evidence in April 2017 Sheriff Weber has an existing conflict of interest with the Conlee’s that will not allow the written law to apply in any situation involving this situation. Sheriff Weber spoke to SA Jeff Huber. Any information given to SA Huber could not have been based on fact, Weber was not privy to any of the facts of this case. Without a reasonable comparison of that information with the facts in the case there can be no reasonable conclusion of this case.

Weber picks Conlee as No. 2

By JEFF HUNT dgceditor@dailygate.com

Dec 23, 2016

MONTROSE – Lee County Sheriff-elect Stacy Weber has appointed a new chief deputy to serve as his second in command. He promoted Will Conlee, a patrol deputy, to help him lead the department. When Weber was campaigning for office, he said if elected there would be changes. Weber said it wasn’t just Conlee’s experience that made him inviting for the job, but it didn’t hurt. “He started with the city of Fort Madison in 1998,” Weber said. “He moved to the sheriff’s office in 2000.”Weber summed up the main reason he wants Conlee in one word.“Leadership,” Weber said. “This was a decision that was easy for me because with the people who are working here, I observed on a daily basis who has leadership skills.” Weber called Conlee a good man and said it is a plus that he was from the area and that his father was in law enforcement. “His father is one of the reasons I am in law enforcement today,” Weber said. “Will comes from good stock. He does the right thing when nobody’s looking.” Weber said the chief deputy will act as the sheriff when the sheriff is not present. He said in the past there were two parts to being the sheriff. One part is the man who comes in and runs the office, and the other is the man who goes out and meets the community. When Weber is out of the office he knows someone will be in charge. Conlee comes from Montrose. He received his law enforcement training at Cedar Rapids Police Academy.

What statute was violated?

In my case eminent domain was not used to take my private property. The way this happened was my neighbor took control of my property from me. He unlawfully applied glyphosate to my property. The evidence suggests that this was his intent. I verbally told him no to do anything to my property the day that I saw the chemicals had been applied, he could have care less about what I told him. I requested an incident report that I had told him not to do anything to my property. By intent the Police chief waited 16 months before he gave me that first report. It was completely inadequate as to the facts of the incident. I gave that one back and told him to give me one that explains what when and why I requested one, he gave me a report that was substandard according to the accurate information. If did not make a difference if I ever got one because my attorney did not submit any evidence that would allow the judge to recognize the degree of inhuman treatment. So if control of my property was taken the only statue I can come up with is conspiracy against rights, deprivation of rights under color of law, and assault with intent causing serious injury. I believe the statute of limitations does not apply in cases of torture and serious injury to a person. It isn’t going to in this case. There is no precedence to make it simpler for a pro se case.

Here are a few of the documents that prove Federal law was violated. The most recent date a public official participated in an act of public corruption was April 2017. That person was newly elected Sheriff and City of Montrose clerk, Celeste Cirinna. At that time these two public officials conspired to suppress evidence that was posted on the City of Montrose website.  It really was a brutal attack on my physical and private property. This man is not fit for society, he intended to acquire my property the cost was of no concern to him. I had only two options, stay at my property and die from chemical exposure or flee from my property in an attempt to save my own life.  I felt forced to flee. I had obligations to make good on.  During the five years that the chemicals were unlawfully applied to my property I was unable to function. I had borrowed basic living expenses from friends, well over $10,000 during these five long years of intentional negligence or in my opinion full out conspiracy against my rights and deprivation of rights under color of law committed  by my corrupt city and county officials. I could not just leave this earth owing that much money to friends who really did not have it to loan it the first place. I suffered for 5 years of excruciating pain, believing that at some point someone of authority would feel obligated to step up, uphold the law and issue this man a trespassing complaint. One of my witnesses, a County Deputy stopped by my home in 2010 and advised me that this neighbor/council member had no intention of stopping with the chemicals.

Understand the basics of this case. This neighbor purchased a legally nonconforming property from the Mayor.  He began redeveloping the lot in 2003, beginning with the removal of the existing  two story single car garage shown in the upper center of the heading photo of this post. The State building code requires a standard procedure in issuing building permits. illegal building permits issued by the City building official.  The redevelopment was illegal from day one. The building permits are not completed as required by the State of Iowa. From the words of the Mayor himself at a city council meeting, “you cannot increase the size to be bigger than the existing buildings”. Even though he had a conflict of interest with every local authority and was allowed to commit these illegal acts,  the one thing that caused problems and the most important thing of all was that he could not get the illegal redevelopment recorded on the county plat map. He simply did not have enough square ft. of legally nonconforming property to accommodate the oversized nonconforming structures to comply with State building code or State drainage law. He decided the answer to his problem was to eliminate me. This was an easy task for him have the local authorities for whatever reason do whatever this neighbor requested of them. Had the attorney I hired to file a complaint done what he was hired to do and we had gone to court,  the court would have order removal of the structures and return the lot to existing condition. There was no option in this case.

It is true, a person does know when they are dying. I knew my days were numbered. I was ready to go, I had suffered long enough. To me it was worse than cancer as I had no timeline to estimate how much longer I would have to suffer. Cancer patients generally get told a timeline. I would not be here to tell this story if not for reasons unknown to me, months later I received a call from the University of  Ia hospital. They said they had a member of staff waiting for me in the ER and to get there asap. I did and this Dr. did save my life. To answer your questions, ​​yes I was forced to flee from my property in order to escape the chemicals. The EPA field investigator advised me that he had never heard of a case in which  a neighbor intentionally applied chemicals to his neighbors property. I understand that is because trespassing laws exist. Law enforcement had a duty to protect my rights. This man was aware that I thought the chemicals were causing my health problems. He never hesitated, he applied the chemicals to my property as if it were part of his maintenance routine for his own yard. There is no other case like this in the USA. This is complex and unprecedented. I was blind as a result of the medical treatment the local hospital administered to me in an unsuccessful attempt to offer me some relief for the severe pain I was having from the full body skin eruptions. In the one picture you can see that my legs are burnt. chemical burnt, I am tough country girl but to suffer that long with no assistance from law enforcement to protect my right to private property I believe was worse that a cancer diagnosis, I was never given a timeline before I would loose my life. I only knew I was going to die as a result of the actions of one man who has no regard for the law or life of another human being.sincerely, Melody Boatner there is so much more evidence to prove my case. I simply do not have the skills to put it together in a formal manner.​ Links containing relevant information that has been suppressed or intentionally overlooked by recently retired Lee County attorney Michael Short and in a civil court in which this neighbor sued me.

​ ​Anyone who believes they would be able just to let it go a brutal attack with the perpetrator using chemicals unlawfully applied to your property with intent to eliminate you and simply walk away, I can testify that you do not have the mental capacity to walk away from such a brutal attack. I have taken the short end of the stick my entire life. I have been the victim of narcissistic abuse my whole 59 years on this earth. I made a clean break from that situation.  I will be damn if a man with such an obvious, severe case of narcissism and psychopathic mental disorder is going to get away with this unscathed. After eliminating the toxic person that I had no choice to be raised with what are the chances a person with as severe or more severe individual would purchase the property adjoining mine.

This case was clearly premeditated. as he had blueprints that the building officials had to have reviewed,I am mad and I want these individuals held accountable. This never leaves my mind not for a second, not that one man is capable of such brutal acts, but that the entire local city and county government knew and allowed this to happen. The conspiracy to cover up these crimes is ongoing as recent as Memorial day. It will continue to be covered up until someone has the courage to put this story out for the general public to read, hear and see the photo evidence proving this happened. Yet I am the one whose character has been defamed by being falsely associate with illegal drug activity, and when asked any questions about this situation, the only response is that she is crazy, Mark Conlee has done nothing wrong. That statement according to two witnesses came from the mouth of the Mayor. The same Mayor who tried to convince me this is a private issue.  He offered me a job at the local community hospital in the maintenance dept.  He was the head of the department in or about 1995. I declined because I had just purchased this property so I could open my own upholstery business. He has known me personally for longer than he has been the Mayor of this city. I knew him when he was in college. I consider his siblings and mother as my family. I believe outside sources influenced his opinions and decisions. In fact I know that he was told I was crazy, but he should have considered the source, recognized it was hearsay.  There is no excuse for an term Mayor to allow and participate in crimes to be committed against me.

In a nutshell, Mark Conlee is a habitual liar. He is obsessed in attempting to make me take down the privacy curtain. He is intent on acquiring my property. I know I was losing my life to these chemicals. At what point does the law determine his actions become intentional to cause me serious injury or death, after my death? Please advise.

The City of Montrose, Iowa and the Lee County Attorney along with a couple Lee County Sheriff’s officers violated my Federal and State Constitutional Rights.  Mark Conlee began unlawfully applying chemicals to my property beginning in early 2005. Mr. Conlee purchased the nonconforming lot in 2002 from Mayor Ron Dinwiddie. Mr. Conlee was issue an incomplete building permit by building official Mark Holland. The position of building official is appointed to a council member by the Mayor. Mayor Dinwiddie makes a conflicting statement about the city having a building official at a city council meeting in Jan. 2005.

Marks intention to unlawfully apply the chemicals to my property was with intent to cause my person and property serious injury.   Local law enforcement denied me equal protection of the law and due process providing me no access to the court.

When Mark Conlee filed a civil complaint against me for putting up a legal privacy curtain. I am aware that he told the general public that he won the case, but he lied.  His case was dismissed. He committed multiple counts of perjury in this 3 day imaginary pursuit of justice. The evidence that is mentioned in the transcripts of this case being submitted by the plaintiff, I never saw. The evidence that I had given my attorney, was never submitted to the court.  The case that I hired an attorney to represent me was as the plaintiff and was against the City of Montrose, Ia. My attorney advised me that we would sue both parties, adding that “the city is where the money is at.” I never found out the truth until the last day of this civil case filed against me by Mark and Linda Conlee. When I was served papers that the Conlee’s were suing me, well, I was quite surprised. There was no person willing to protect my rights or unwilling to commit a crime on behalf of Mark and Linda Conlee. There has to be a reason for the intentional disregard for all laws in this case. The most common reason for treason is greed. As I have said on numerous occasions. My case is about criminal offences committed against me by my local government officials. As this crimes were committed I was advised that I could not file any civil complaints alleging criminal offenses. I have been advised by the County clerk only the County Attorney has that authority. I have been advised this is a private case, but I have no authority to file a criminal complaint against these conspirators. During every criminal act that was committed against me there were two or more individuals involved in the act. The explanation of this judge is based on no factual evidence. The factual evidence was suppressed  by my attorney. This ruling was based on hearsay of what Mark Conlee said and it makes no sense at all. Illegal removal of an existing berm is what several of my experts were prepared to testify to had they been given the opportunity. Or had the written affidavits been submitted to the court. All the stormwater from this long narrow lot of property was diverted onto my property after the illegal property redevelopment was completed. Mark Conlee did illegally change the frontage of his property but swore under oath that he did not. Photo evidence that my attorney suppressed proves that without any doubt. In spite of my witnesses not being questioned at all by my attorney. In spite of my attorney’s opinion that my witnesses were “experts in their own right”, and a “compelling list of witnesses”. The judge still dismiss Mark Conlee’s civil case against me. Had this judge been given the evidence and heard the testimony my witnesses were prepared to testify to. Mark Conlee was not the liable party in the case I hired an attorney for. I do not know the purpose my attorney advised me that we would sue both parties. I do not know why my attorney required $100 on that first day specifically to cover the filing fee for the complaint against the city but never filed the complaint. I do not know why my attorney reassured me throughout this time line that he had filed the complaint against the city when he knew full well he had not. I have an idea as to why he misrepresented this client. Any reasonable person could only come to the conclusion that I have as to why this many government officials would commit criminal offenses on behalf of  Mark Conlee. I have been waiting patiently for the government official with the authority to further investigate what I have no authority to investigate the most reasonable conclusion as to how this happened in the USA. I am still being advised this is a private issue. I have read hard copy evidence that this is what the Federal government considers a high priority. The hard copy evidence is more reasonable than hearsay with no evidence to support this is a private issue. As I have no authority to file a criminal complaint of conspiracy against rights against the City and County. Only prosecutors have the authority to file criminal complaints against anyone as I understand it. I do know for a fact that the liable party in my case initially is the City of Montrose, Iowa. The building official has the duty to review the blueprints. Site layout and drainage are the first steps any reasonable person does when constructing or redeveloping. The building official assures compliance to State laws not the neighbor. This has been a premeditated act since the day Mark Conlee’s redevelopment was rejected from being recorded on the County plat map. This was a premeditated plan to eliminate me from my property. This is a case of violation of my State and Federal Constitutional RIghts and justice will be served.

Conlee vs Boatner finding of facts, page 9

 

Though the City police refused to acknowledge my Constitutional rights, the Civil court did. The judge cited in this page of the court transcripts “my right to use my property as I see fit”. That is a Federal and State Constitutional Right. This right is never to be taken. Conlee committed perjury in nearly every statement he made in the courtroom. My attorney Steve Swan conspired with Conlee to suppress evidence. He never question any of my “compelling list of witnesses nor did he submit photo evidence or the witnesses affidavits to the court. The judge based his ruling on the testimony of Conlee’s witness. The judge misquoted that witness. The judge claims she said the Boatner property always received stormwater runoff from the Conlee property. That is not what she said. My attorney knew the judge misquoted Ms. Adkins as he stated in an email he sent me after the written ruling was sent in the USPS mail. I recognized he misquoted her testimony as soon as I read the court ruling. Relevant is the fact that when I received the written decision I was advised by my attorney that I only had 7 days to file an appeal, he did not want the case. What she actually said was nearly word for word what my witness, Ms Adkins ex-husband was prepared to testify on the stand and did state in his written affidavit. Unfortunately my attorney failed to question my witnesses or submit the affidavits to the court. This can not be dismissed as an incompetent attorney. He would never have passed the bar. Attorney Steve Swan conspired with Conlee to assist him in acquiring my property by the use of chemicals weapons with intent to cause me serious injury. Swan knew this before we went to court. tHad he intended to represent my best interest he would have file the complaint against the City of Montrose as I hired him to do, and he pretended he had up until the final day of the civil case Conlee filed against me. He would have amended the counter complaint against in the Conlee case for trespassing at least.

The following documents are and could have easily been recognized by the judge as Conlee’s admission of his illegal property redevelopment being the cause of the nuisance drainage issue that occurred to my property after the development was completed. Steve Swan also kept these documents suppressed from the court.

6-5-2006 Conlee offer to settle out of court

Lee County Extension agent was prepared to testify that the Iowa drainage law is that a redevelopment cannot produce more stormwater runoff to a neighboring property than before the redevelopment. In this case just the massive roof surfaces of the new structures increased the stormwater runoff to Boatner’s property significantly. Apparently the judge was not given the photo’s of before and after the redevelopment or was not clear about the Iowa stormwater drainage law.

There was no mention of the building permit for the home requiring the signature of the builder not being signed by the builder but was approved by the city building official. Or the fact that public record shows Mayor Dinwiddie acknowledges that fact just prior to me submit the unsigned building permit to him. He took no action to require the building authority to follow through with standard procedure in Conlee’s illegal property redevelopment. Mayor Dinwiddie states on public record that a redevelopment cannot have structures larger than the existing structures. All law were violated by Conlee and he was supported completely by the local authorities despite the state of despair I was suffering as a result of my State and Federal right being violated ongoing for a period of over 5 years.  The building official has the duty to remedy issues between property owners regarding new property redevelopment, he refused. The City police have the duty to protect my rights, in this case they not only allowed my rights to be violated but assisted in the violation of my rights.

6-22-2006 2nd offer by Conlee admitting liability for drainage
6-22-2006 2nd offer by Conlee admitting liability for drainage

By the Judge recognizing my right to do what I want with my property, I find it reasonable to believe that would include my right to determine that no chemicals be unlawfully applied. That was not what happened after this case. The chemicals continued to be applied. Lee County attorney sent Deputy Dave Hunold to my house to investigate a second allegation that “Mark Conlee said” I had given him the finger. I advised Hunold that I wanted to file a trespassing complaint. He advised me after reviewing the court order that the judge did not specify no chemicals so he did not think a trespassing complaint was applicable. I thought to myself are you kidding me? He also advised me that he was only at my house to investigate a complaint made by Mark Conlee that I gave him the finger for the second time. The actions of officer Hunold support a conspiracy to deprive me of my rights under color of law and contempt of court which I have no authority to file a criminal complaint against.

If it is true there is no Federal law against terrorism, as I have been advised then this evidence supports this was an act of Conspiracy against rights. This evidence supports this was an act of deprivation of rights under color of law. Both of which are violations of Federal laws.

Melody Boatner.

Former Lee County Attorney Michael Short and Chief of Police Brent Shipman make a well formed militia, no way justice was going to be served.

         I am searching for any civil cases in which the plaintiff has filed a civil complaint alleging trespassing against the private party. I want to see any civil cases in which the plaintiff has filed multiple counts of fraud against another person. I want to see any legal action in which the plaintiff has filed a civil case alleging the defendant has committed a criminal offense. I came across the document above when I believe Lee County Detective Bob Conlee was attempting to set me up for a drug bust. If you would review Lee County Attorney Michael Short . Short  advised me that “he” would decide who gets prosecuted in Lee County, Iowa. He wasn’t kidding he was willing and did everything needed to protect Mark Conlee in his unprecedented illegal actions against his neighbor.
Most of you have the common knowledge of the laws and rules a Sheriff has the duty to provide to the citizens in their County described below. I am still waiting for the results of an investigation into my allegations as stated by then County Attorney Mike Short and current Lee County Sheriff Stacy Weber. Weber has a conflict of interest that is next to none according to the record. He certainly learned from the best of the best as former County Detective Bob Conlee is described as his mentor. His reason for getting into law enforcement as a career choice.
Working with Federal and State Legislatures to create laws providing safer communities

The SHERIFF is the only elected Law Enforcement Officer in the State of Iowa.

THE DUTIES OF SHERIFF INCLUDE:

  • Execution and return of all legal civil papers
  • Enforce the law of the State of Iowa
  • Enforce County Ordinances

  • Maintain the Sex Offender Registry
  • Patrol all areas of the county
  • Respond to any and all disasters within the county
  • Assist other Law Enforcement agencies
  • Sustain Iowa VINE for Victims
Mr. Short failed the citizens of Lee County to a serious degree beginning in filing two criminal complaints against me on behalf of his number one colleague Detective Bob Conlee and his brother, Mark Conlee. The complaints were clearly frivolous and fabricated.  There is no existing law against giving the middle finger to another person.

Harassment, (simple misdemeanor) defendant with intent annoy another person by flipping the middle finger, continuously.                                                                                                                  County Attorney and Chief Shipman are acting as puppets on Mr. Conlee’s behalf. Denies legitimate allegation with hard evidence supporting Conlee was continuously applying chemicals  unlawfully to Boatners property with intent to cause serious harm.

 

 

7-2-2007 summons State of Iowa vs Melody Boatner .jpg

This is an example of the standard procedure followed in any action in this “criminal” case. There was no local government official willing to honor their ethical oath. They were all completely devoted to Mark Conlee’s goal to acquire his goal. It was like they were hypnotized. I know full well that the County attorney should know what is a criminal violation and what is a fabricated law. Chief Shipman scratched out the last sentence as I advised him there was no law preventing a citizen from having two licensed, insured vehicles on their private property. Mark Conlee used his position as council member to push past any recognition of ethical standards. I feel like I have been raped by these public servants. I will never be the person I was prior to the physical assault by this gang.in their quest to acquire my property. No holds barred, they were intent on this goal. I was unable to assert my rights to save my life.

Police Chief Brent Shipman under color of law violates civil court order citing my right to enjoy my own property. NOTE; staubs broken off at ground level obviously pushed away from fence line from Conlee property by Conlee in the middle of the night.


Attorney Steve Swan representing me was confident in my case against the City of Montrose. Expressing that this witness list in itself would be compelling to the court. Stating these witnesses are experts in their own right and completely unrelated to each other. They are actually more related to the City officials by blood and special friendship. Had he submitted any of the affidavits or question the witnesses on the stand in court no doubt this case against the City would have been a slam dunk. Swan lied to me, he never filed a complaint against the CIty of Montrose. Question: Did Steve Swan simply forget that he never actually filed a complaint on my behalf, and told me he did out of error. Or did Steve Swan conspire with Mark Conlee and the CIty of Montrose violating his oath and my Constitutional RIghts to equal protection of the law and Right to enjoy my own property. .

Two out of court settlement offers by the PLAINTIFF to me the DEFENDANT cause of action was LOSS OF ENJOYMENT TO HIS PROPERTY! UNBELIEVABLE PSYCHOPATHIC TRAIT.  This evidence proves Conlee admits to causing the nuisance drainage problem to my property. This evidence was suppressed from the court by my Attorney Steve Swan. QUESTION: was failing to submit this evidence a simple mistake by my Attorney Steve Swan or was Steve Swan conspiring to deprive my Constitutional RIghts to enjoy my own property and equal protection of the law.


This was done on behalf of one man who redeveloped his legally nonconforming property into illegally nonconforming property. The building permits issued are illegal. Applying chemicals to the property of another person is illegal. I repeatedly requested the City and County Attorney to file a complaint on my behalf. I was repeatedly denied my right to file a criminal complaint. The existing conflict of interest was just to extreme for any of these officials to follow the law. This is a conspiracy deprivation of rights under color of law. In order for him to legally plat it on the County map he had to acquire ownership of my property. He used chemical warfare to accomplish his agenda. This was intentional to cause me bodily harm or death, defined by law as attempted murder  Poisoned by my Neighbor from Hell is a partially compiled web site blog. There are many more criminal offenses committed against me that I have yet to post. Any public exposure is welcome. They know I have the evidence or I am sure a defamation of character complaint would have been filed against me. They have file many frivolous complaints on Mark Conlee’s behalf. I admit I did give him the finger. that is not a crime Mr, Short,

Witnesses on Boatner’s behalf

Witnesses on Boatner’s behalf

These individuals were intended to be witnesses in a case that should have been titled Boatner vs. City of Montrose, Ia, that is what Steve Swan was hired to do, that complaint was never filed. Steve Swan assured me that he filed the complaint against the city several times,it was he that advised me that we would sue both parties, the city and Mark Conlee. I was well aware that the liability was that of the city, Steve Swan was aware of that also. I met with him the first time so I could question his knowledge of the law pertaining to property redevelopment, legally nonconforming properties and the duty a city must provide for the residents. He was overpaid according to his own documented statements of evidence.  Steve Swan was intentionally negligent, no attorney could pass the bar showing the skills he showed throughout this untimely process. Lee County Attorney Michael Short sent a deputy to investigate a complaint made by Mark Conlee against me, claiming he was concerned  that there may be a conflict of interest. My witnesses were never interviewed by the City of Montrose Police Dept or Lee County Sheriff’s Dept. Mark Conlee make multiple false police reports against Boatner. Conlee was never concerned of being held accountable by the City of Montrose or Lee County Attorney Michael Short for his many criminal offenses including contempt of court. They fully participated in every action he requested, legal or illegal, nobody showed any concern for the law that they were violating by participating.

Documented evidence proves Lee County Attorney Michael Short advised Boatner that he would need and independent investigation. I am not certain what County Attorney Short meant by “an independent investigation”. Due to the fact that none of my witnesses were ever interviewed in what would be considered a typical investigation. I stated that I wanted an investigation I am still today  patiently waiting to hear from Lee County Attorney Short as the the results of his independent investigation.

My witnesses took the stand to testify on my behalf in a civil suit Mark Conlee filed against me. Conlee vs Boatner EQEQ 004043 cause of action, loss of enjoyment to his property. They were not question by Steve Swan. My first witness was a former tenant of the Conlee property, well aware of the existing berm and the fact that when it rained the berm held back the stormwater from my property causing the front yard of Conlee property to retain a small pond. Swan never asked him any questions. I asked him why he didn’t question that witness about the berm. Steve Swan advised me that the judge uses his own common sense. In the previous criminal cases against me I never had to speak a word as the evidence was undeniable. Had Steve Swan submitted the written affidavits and photo evidence that supported my allegations. Unfortunately Steve Swan was to incompetent to file a complaint against the liable party, the City of Montrose, question the witnesses who should have been viewed as experts in their field, notify me in a timely manner that a decision had been made.

Protecting the Property Rights of All: No Adverse Impact Floodplain and Stormwater Management

Protecting the Property Rights of All

NO ADVERSE IMPACT FLOODPLAIN MANAGEMENT AND THE COURTS

My initial complaint was in regard to this issue. To end up being poisoned by chemicals illegally applied to my property because the City and County officials had a conflict of interest with this illegally nonconforming owner/builder/redeveloper who was issued illegal building permits is unprecedented. It was the chemicals that nearly cost me my life. I could control the stormwater within my rights to defend my property. This man was angry that the officials could not control what I did legally on my own property. I could not control the chemicals, the fact that this man was allowed to do this knowing it was causing me physical harm and the officials dismissing the act as he had the right. That makes this a Federal Constitutional Rights case. The perps are the CIty and County officials who had the duty to protect my Right to enjoy my own property and my Right to Equal Protection of the Law.

About Lee County Detective Robert (Bob) Conlee

About Lee County Sheriff’s Officer Robert (Bob Conlee)

Bob Conlee has been employee by the Lee County Sheriff’s since graduating high school in early 1970’s. I recall that there was one requirement that Bob could not pass. That was the  height required for all officers to be considered for employment. The sheriff’s dept changed their policy at that time on behalf of Bob Conlee. Bob spent his entire career as a Lee County Law Enforcement Officer beginning as a deputy.

Feb. 3, 2005 Deputy Bob Conlee was promoted to Detective for Lee County Sheriffs Office .  At that time Lee County Detective Bob Conlee used his position to misrepresent his authority to become personally involved in a complaint Boatner had with his brother, Mark Conlee and the City of Montrose, Ia. Detective Bob Conlee Had no jurisdiction in the City of Montrose. If he did there was an existing conflict of interest due to Mark Conlee being his blood brother.

On March 22, 2005  Lee County Detective Bob Conlee arrived at Mark Conlees home in regard to a nuisance drainage issue complaint I had made to Mark Conlee, Mayor Ron Dinwiddie and Council Member/building administrator Mark Holland. The Following day Mark Conlee Hand delivered his response to my complaint. The authority Mark “checked with”  is his brother Lee County Detective  Bob. Lee County Detective Bob Conlee has no jurisdiction or authority in this matter or any other matter involving the City of Montrose.

Soon after I made my initial complaint to Mark Conlee in regards to the nuisance drainage issue caused by his new illegal property redevelopment Lee County Detective Bob Conlee began to defame my character . By knowingly making false statements, fabricating evidence. His intent was to associate me with a family member, who has in the past got caught with marijuana . I had heard several rumors that he had been defaming my character.  Lee County Detective Bob Conlee proved that to me when I heard him ask, over the police radio “are you sure it’s not Melody driving her (family member) truck”?  Following up with “he knew I used to drive my family members truck”.  He stated that as it was a fact.  I and a very credible witness, listed on the “compelling list of witnesses”, both heard this at the same time. Detective Conlee intention was to defame my character on his brother, Mark Conlee’s behalf, to cast an unfavorable opinion of me to the community of Montrose, Ia. 

I have had no interaction with my family member since 1995 and anyone who knows me and my family has that knowledge. Lee County Deputy David Hunold responded to a domestic 911 call at that time.  Lee County Detective Bob Conlee does know that the only interaction I have ever had with the Lee County Iowa drug task force is one time when I was mistaken for my family members girlfriend.  The error was reasonable,  I was mistaken for someone else because my truck is the same color as my family members truck.  However, my truck is a Ford Ranger, my family members is a  Chevy S-10.  I was quickly cleared of any involvement by then deputy Bob Conlee’s superior officers at that time.  The two senior officers were Tom Crew and Buck Jones. Neither of which I had ever met.  I did discover after the fact that they were there to serve a  warrant, issued for someone else. The person was expected to be arrive driving my family members gray truck.  It had nothing to do with Melody Boatner.

Bob Conlee knew or should have known whose name was on that search warrant . Bob Conlee could and did ID me immediately.  Bob Conlee and I had attended the same school from grades 1-12.  Bob was 3 or 4 years older than I. We were raise in the same small town of Montrose, Ia.  A town when back then everyone knew at least everyone elses name.

  I know for a fact that there is no evidence to support Bob Conlee’s allegations. I have never driven my family members truck and I wouldn’t borrow  my family members truck.  Bob Conlee repeatedly made false statements about me, defaming my character. His intent was to try to associate me with illegal drug activity.  Bob Conlee is the criminal in this case, not me!

Could it be possible that Constitutional Rights were violated by local government officials because they were stalling, until I got busted?  Based on fabricated statements made by Lee County Detective Bob Conlee?  Was the entire community misled to believe that I was going to be busted for illegal drug activity? Are they so simple minded that they do not understand our justice system is based on “innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.” Whether I was involved in illegal activity or not, my right to enjoy my own property, and right to equal protection of the law, were violated. My right to due process was violated. An independent investigation is warranted to find if my right to due process was violated.  Was I considered guilty of illegal drug activity based on fabricated evidence perpetrated by Lee County Detective Bob Conlee’s defamation of my character to the general public. Every City of Montrose and Lee County government official who voiced an opinion on Mark Conlee’s behalf by defaming my character are guilty of CONSPIRACY DEPRIVATION OF RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW and Terrorist acts using chemical weapons with intent to cause serious injury. Because no one with authority protected my rights. They participated in violating my rights on Mark Conlee’s behalf. 

At first it was kind of humorous that Lee County Detective Bob Conlee had me under surveillance and making false statements that I was going to be busted for dope. Simply because it was such an extreme conflicting statement to the fact that I had no interaction with my brother since 1995.  But it turned into psychopathic stalking.  He had me under surveillance constantly.  He was so desperate to follow through with his false statements he followed me on several occasions and knowingly made false statements about those incidents. He has never seen me driving my family members truck, or anything else that associates me with illegal activity of any kind.  I confided to friends at that time that I believed if he would have caught me on a gravel road he would have shot me.

It was also during this time that Lee County Sheriff’s Deputy Dave Hunold pulled over a mutual friend of ours, witness, Hunold pulled him over to warn him that the house he just left, (my house) was going to get busted.  I dismissed his allegations due to the fact that Hunold is not on the Drug Task Force, and it is not general procedure for deputy officers  to have knowledge of this type of information. If they do I know of no other case where deputies spread the word to the general public. I assumed Deputy Hunold had mistaken my house for one the next block down that had gotten busted. However Bob and Mark Conlee were spewing these lies to the general public with no regard to implicating themselves in unethical and criminal behavior, or anyone else for that matter.Lee County Detective Bob Conlee initiated these falsehoods on his brother’s behalf, I assume Bob was telling Mark not to worry about my nuisance drainage, illegal non conforming property complaint.  Probably assuring Mark that he could acquire my property through an asset forfeiture sale when I got busted. Mark was repeating Bobs lies to City of Montrose Chief of Police Brent Shipman, all other local government officials, and to the general public. The evidence  will prove Bob and Mark Conlee to be psychopathic pathological liars. 

Lee County Detective Bob Conlee was obsessed with proving his falsehoods to be true. He had me under surveillance 24-7 the entire time he  had the position titled Lee County Criminal Investigator.  There were very few occasions I left my house. One of those times I needed to modify a metal chair frame I was working on. I took the frame to a friends shop to use his chop saw. My friend was at his desk doing paper work, he walked back to where I was and asked what my street address was. I told him. He responded that he had just heard my address mentioned on the police scanner. A few minutes later Bob Conlee came full throttle through the door, he walked back to where I was working, turned around and walked back out the door. He never spoke a word. Apparently he thought he caught me in the middle of some type of illegal activity. When he got back in his unmarked vehicle he again knowingly made a false statement over the police scanner. He stated that my truck was parked in a hidden position between 2 vehicles. The fact is that I had parked next to the owner of the business another individual arrived after I had and parked on the other side of my truck. My truck was between two vehicles but only because the vehicles were parked according to time of arrival taking the next available parking spot. Lee County Detective Bob Conlee knowingly made a false statement that I was hiding my truck. His intent was to defame my character had become criminal harassment by this time. But Lee County Attorney Mike Short has been working side by side with him 18 years, conflict of interest allows for no  accountability for any of the many criminal offenses committed against me. Detective Bob Conlee has proven himself to be a pathological liar. Bob Conlee has proven himself to be a pathological stalker. The effect the chemicals Mark Conlee unlawfully applied to my property to my skin were severe. Within a year I was physically unable to wear clothes. I lost my eyesight. I had no quality of life and was completely unable to function.

Another sequence of events that I find suspicious that Bob attempted to “set me up in a drug bust”. I had been living at my property for 15 years. The next block down Rick Hardman had been living for as long as I had been there. I think. We had never had a conversation of any kind, I don’t recall ever speaking to each other. One afternoon I was at the stop sign in front of his house and Rick approached me. He asked me if I wanted to smoke a joint, I politely told him that I did not smoke weed, He proceeded to tell me who was selling dope in town, bla,bla,bla. I went on about my business. Some time later, out of the blue. Rick Hardman knocked on my door. Rick told me that he had some important information that he wanted to give my family member. Rick presented me with an affidavit from the Thomas Greer case. The affidavit was signed by a person unknown to me and was dated years earlier. The content implicated Lee County Attorney being involved with illegal drug activity. The affidavit stated that the signer had worked, delivering cocaine for Lee County Attorney Michael Short. It claimed Michael Short had promised that if the signer ever got caught by law enforcement, Short would step up and use his influence to get any charges dismissed and he would protect this guy from being prosecuted. I told Mr. Hardman that my family member and I had not communicated for years but I would go so far as dial the phone for him if he wanted to talk to my family member. I dialed the number and handed the phone to Rick. I overheard the conversation,  Rick confirmed that he would meet my brother and Linger-Longer rest area, for the purpose of  giving my family member the information for whatever reason . To my knowledge the meeting did occur. Rick left me a copy of the affidavit, which I still have.

It is reasonable that Bob Conlee was behind Rick Hardman contacting me on these two occasions. There is no other reason after 15 years of being nearby neighbors Rick Hardman would seek me out in regards to illegal drugs. Bob was desperate to make me into the person he had falsely claimed I was, Bob’s commitment to his brother is honorable, his tactics were completely illegal, immoral and violated my US Constitutional Rights, including my right to due process.

Bob Conlee retired from the Lee County Sheriff’s Dept. in the spring of 2007. I suspect Bob was given an option. He could choose to retire or be terminated due to his corrupt, criminal, and unethical actions against me personally. Bob Conlee conspired with Mark Conlee to deprive me of my U.S. Constitutional Right to enjoy my own property. It is unreasonable to believe that Bob Conlee chose to retire in spring of 2007,   after only 2 years getting promoted to Criminal Investigator. I recall an article in the local newspaper in which Bob stated that he did not need the insurance due to his wife’s coverage. Bob’s age at retirement was, I believe, in his early 50’s. With 17 years of service, Bob Conlee’s salary was $39,949.00 when he retired in 2007. I was told he took a job changing tires at a business in Donnellson soon after he retired, I do not know if this is true. Bob took a full time job as bus driver for Central Lee Community School District, to my knowledge he is still employed at that job. The average pay for a school bus driver in Iowa is $26,000. That in itself doesn’t seem reasonable. Does a reasonable person retire early, than take a full time job that pays significantly less money than his previous job. Not to mention the notoriety and influential power behind holding the top law enforcement position in Lee County, Ia. I researched some interesting financial information that is public record. On September 23, 2009 Robert Conlee’s property was repossessed. A FORECLOSURE AGAINST Bob Conlee FOR $88,063.39, PLUS INT AT 7.68% PER ANNAM ON PRINCIPAL OF $85,619.06 FROM 8/2/2012 PLUS COSTS, ATTORNEY FEES, ABSTRACTING FEES IN THE AMOUNT OF $1,801.00 was settled on August 3, 2012. A reasonable person does not retire from his career early, only to have his property repossessed. I am not buying that story for a minute. I find it much more reasonable to believe that Lee County Investigator Robert (Bob) Conlee chose to take a forced resignation rather than be terminated from his job as Lee County Investigator. A Federal investigation is warranted to uncover the truth and hold those who conspired to cover his behavior accountable for conspiracy deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law.

He knowingly made false statements, defamation of character. He violated my Constitutional Right to enjoy my property under color of law. Bob Conlee misrepresented himself as having the authority of City of Montrose Building administrator when he had no jurisdiction to act as any type of authority in the City of Montrose. Had he had any authority he still would have been in violation of rules of ethics due to conflict of interest as Mark Conlee is his blood brother. Bob Conlees criminal acts against me were malicious with intent to harass, cause me financial and emotional harm. Bob Conlees behavior is not that of a reasonable person in a high ranking position of law enforcement would do. Bob Conlee conspired to deprive me of my US and State Constitutional Right to enjoy my own property and equal protection of the law.
