Thunder St. News
Thunder Street Ministry officially launched on October 31st, 2017. What began as a one-man army has grown to a team of five.
Our mission is clear: God has commissioned us to aid families suffering through the agony of losing a loved to abduction or other unsolved disappearance by providing a number of free services. You can never have too many eyes looking for the answers to these situations.
We've received a lot of positive support for our vision to launch a Christ-centered ministry that seeks to bring justice to families of missing persons and victims of cold case crimes, providing a number of services for them at no cost. We have significant goals for this year, and we want to send a clear message in 2018: that God is fulfilling is promise spoken through Christ in Luke 8:17 and 12:2-3. "...there is nothing hidden that will not be made known..."
To explain in a nutshell what we do for families is simple: we never forget. Thunder Street Ministry was founded on the idea that no matter how difficult a case may be to solve, we'll never stop trying. Finding the truth is a race against time for law enforcement, and they sometimes fight an uphill battle as new cases pile up and the evidence trail grows cold. We hope to aid their efforts in any way we're able to the fullest extent of our abilities.
With that, here is what we have planned for 2018:
Return to Poudre Canyon - The team has spoken with the Atadero family and are working together to bring justice for Jaryd Atadero. We do not have definitive dates set, but we are planning a week-long endeavor to film some additional documentary footage of the trail and have interviews with family and friends. We believe the suspect(s) are still in the region of the canyon, and are waiting for us to find their latest planted evidence.
Barbara Ann Foshaug/Melissa Ann Lee Murder - After obtaining the police report from Minneapolis PD, we have gained considerable perspective on the Foshaug/Lee case and will be attempting to make contact with people who may be able to shed light on persons of interest. The report points to two individuals, Melvin Leverett and William Schemmel aka 'Wild Bill Kansas,' two close associates whose whereabouts were unaccounted for in the evening hours of September 7th, 1963.
Equipment and Training - We always seeks to keep ourselves sharp and ready, and in 2018 we will be seeking out the guidance of experienced individuals to enhance our knowledge base in several key areas. This includes tracking, open-source intelligence techniques, and SIIU training. Also of note, we are looking to purchase several items that will aid our efforts considerably. A full list of equipment needs will be made available soon.
Future Cases - There are several cases that are of great interest to us that we are not at liberty to discuss until we are contacted by the families. We would appreciate it if you would pray with us that opportunities to cover these cases will come our way. It is our policy to connect with families first before we list a case.
On behalf of the team, thank you for reading.
