Dear Priscilla or Ashley,
Please forward to Mr. Murray. Also note the Sheriff's department failed to Serve a Summons to John and Mary Purkey for Court date on June 15, 2021. As a result, the date has been rescheduled. If the new Summons will not be -served please explain the reasons and advise by Monday, June 21, 2021. The court Guard spoke to a man sitting there that the Summons would not be served. It was said loud enough for me to hear intentionally.
Thank you.

Re: Valente v. Purkey May 20, 2021 Gate, Protective Order, Obstruction of Justice, Negligence.

Dear Mr. Murray,

I am in receipt of your June 8, 2021 cover letter through my Muck Rock open public records request.

Thank you for providing a copy of the Witness statement. However, there is an error in the Complaint which I corrected several times over the phone yet was not corrected. The actual damages are $679.98. This amount includes the original gate that was attached to the original posts at the time I purchased the property, May 2019. That gate was operable yet was intentionally damaged and torn down, likely by Purkey, who has the audacity to claim it was his gate. By the way, those original gate posts are stapled to the barbed wire fencing that Travis Sparks used to secure the property.

In reading your letter there are a lot of misconceptions and word lasagna on your part. I came to your office to file criminal charges against John Purkey. The removal of and crushing my gate on my property was one of many incidences over the past two years. It appears that you are ignoring the elephant in the room ignoring the Cease-and-Desist letter sent in 2020, which you and Sheriff Hays were copied on. To make claim that this is a “one time” occurrence or that it is merely a “property dispute”, is clearly ignoring the facts, condoning criminal acts. It is also ignores laws in the state of Kentucky.

Mary Purkey trespassed my property a minimum of four times. If you check the dispatch logs, you will see that I called regarding Mary Purkey and John Purkey a minimum of five times in the past year. If you read the Cease-and-Desist letter, it clearly outlines the pattern of abuse, criminal trespassing, harassment, menace, vandalism, which are all part of their stalking activities.

From what I understand, in the state of Kentucky, anyone can bury anything or a person on their property and call it a cemetery. John’s alleged cemetery was not registered with the County as either Public or Private Cemetery. If John Purkey chose to bury his parents on his property he has another access to it according to Google Maps. In fact the access to his alleged burial is closer to his other driveway, entrance. There’s no need for him to access my driveway for any reason.

After two years of stalking, harassment, trespassing, terrorist threats, neither John nor Mary Purkey has presented any evidence including County clerk Search. Speaking with family members of the late Travis Sparks, told me to not trust the neighbors! John and Mary Purkey are pathological liars and a danger to this community. Purkey attempted to steal property from Travis Sparks when he was alive and then continued to prey on me, after he passed.

John and Mary Purkey possess an entitled criminal mindset. As a County attorney, you should be well-versed in the rules of evidence. Unfortunately, both John and Mary have demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt, that they possess poor impulse control, appear to have psychological problems, are pathological liars, threaten with a loaded weapon, wearing a disguise, and you are protecting these criminal acts. As I mentioned to you in your office, the burden of proof relies on the Purkey’s. A legal survey trumps a Deed. I welcome the Purkey’s to hire a land surveyor and then they can file the civil suit and battle it out with my land surveyor because that’s how it works. I will pursue criminal charges against these depraved individuals.

I am holding your office, and the Sheriff’s office responsible for not pressing charges against John Purkey. I am also holding your office and the Sheriff’s office for not accurately documenting the stalking activities of the Purkey family.

The video I provided of Mary Purkey trespassing my property July 2020, posting signs and screaming in my face on my property, clearly demonstrated that she had no evidence, she was out of control,. She also clearly stated, that her property was after mine and that she could move the property markers. Moving legally surveyed property markers is a felony. The video clearly demonstrate that Mary Purkey is delusional and has psychological problems. She can say anything she wants, but in the last two years they haven’t backed up any of their claims with evidence.

As I stated John Purkey drove up to my house wearing loaded weapon, July 2020 asking for “his gate” the one previously hung and operational that was now crushed and buried under dirt. It is not his gate. He intentional destroyed the gate just as he did with the new one.

Your nonchalant demeanor is quite alarming given that there is two years of evidence against these perpetrators. I have already posted their videos online. People are outraged. There are even more outraged at the attitude of this local government which appears to be covering up criminal activities of local people.

Even though this may seem inconsequential, in that video or Mary Purkey claims to have cooked dinner for Travis Sparks, that is a blatant lie. It appears to be as a script the local women like to use. Another stalker female uses the same script. Travis Sparks ate at the local diner every evening. If somebody can tell a small lie, just think about the bigger ones.

Since the Purkey’s own more than 100 acres of land, I suggest that they build another method to get to their property. It will not be through mine.

Shooting bullet holes through my no trespassing sign is vandalism. It’s also harassment and a terrorist threat. Just as it was when they fired a weapon 3 times at the foot of my driveway. Again, it appears as if you’re protecting two people who have engaged in criminal behavior ignoring the Criminal Codes.. The fact that they appear to be both mentally unstable, possess poor judgment and presented zero evidence, is alarming. Their behavior has escalated. I will hold your office and the sheriff’s office responsible for not taking action should anything happen to me. There is a Conflict of Interest, Dereliction of Duties, Conspiracy Against Rights under the Color of Law, Negligence, Dishonesty to a Court all equal Professional Misconduct. Stealing my evidence that you are not permitted to use. I do not give you or anyone else permission to use my evidence.

When someone wears a disguise to commit a crime and destroys personal property in broad daylight, shooting a firearm on my property is a terrorist threat. I have already reported Purkey to the appropriate authorities in the state of Kentucky and to the Federal government.

John and Mary Purkey are depraved, loose cannon, dangerous individuals. They should not own a fire arm. If I ever find them on my property again I will go higher up the ladder since it’s obvious that I will not obtain any unbiased support from your office. Your letter clearly demonstrates manipulating the truth to gaslight, and discredit the evidence. It appears as if you are mocking the circumstances while having fun.

You are correct, criminal acts are very serious. Both John and Mary Purkey have committed escalating and alarming criminal acts over the past two years. Protecting them, who have clearly violated multiple laws, is despicable. Discrediting Witness testimony and evidence even more alarming.

For the record, Mary Purkey pulled over Johnny and me when we were working at the foot of my driveway. Mary spewed her usual tirade of manipulative lies while harassing he and I, again. In June, John Purkey stalked my property from Sand ick Road, creeping slowly passed by rather than drive a normal pace.

Best Regards,
Lorraine Valente

To Ross Murray:

To refresh your memory, Johnny Christopher and his 15 year old son witnessed John Purkey driving his John Deere tractor, attaching the tractor to my newly installed gate and ripping it, the posts and chain out of the ground, crushing it and dumping it on my primary driveway. Johhny Christopher also received a threatening letter placed in his mailbox, whereas he lives 40 minutes away before our court date with Mary Purkey. That letter used the same verbiage on top of your letterhead in the threat letter.
