Witnesses and survivors with past arrests

So far, a few actors, actor wannabes, and publicity people have been identified in the Orlando event. I believe at least a few more can eventually be identified as falling into the same category. I just have to double check their bios.

I got sidetracked after some researchers uncovered information about an entirely different kind of people involved in the Orlando event. These witnesses/survivors claim to have interesting information, and yet they also happen to have past troubles with the law. In other words, if this event was manufactured, the authorities may have had some leverage over these men, and thus used and possibly rewarded them for their participation. These people remind me of some suspicious folks from the Sandy Hook event: victim-father Neil Helsin, with his many police run-ins and court appearances, as well as the Bajraliu and Pozner families, who both had several costly legal problems. Plus, there’s that shady performer from the Los Vegas Walmart shooting, Jared Miller, who did jail time and then started working as an informant/infiltrator. All these people might have either volunteered or were guided to engage in these events to ease their long-term legal and financial problems.

So, without further ado, I'm going to introduce two unrelated, mysterious men who had 'big news' regarding the Orlando Massacre.

Introducing Nick Hornstein, man on the scene, and man with a record


The first eyewitness I want to discuss is Nick Hornstein (Nicholas David Hornstein). Not from Orlando, he was visiting a friend who lived in an apartment across from the Pulse night club. He claimed to have video footage of a gun battle just after 5AM, with police opening fire at the assailant coming out of the Pulse night club.

Here is his story and his phone video, which went ‘viral’ :

First of all, his video shows absolutely nothing. Just a few cop cars around the Pulse. However, with the flashin lights and the gunshot audio pumped in, it creates the illusion that a whole lot of stuff is happening off-stage.

He also claimed to have seen and heard the original chaos that started at 2:00AM. But he didn’t film the really important part with the hundreds of injured people fleeing the Pulse. Not the gunman battling police. That would have been a spectacle, correct?. So maybe we should just take his word for it that he saw it, without evidence?. Or maybe we shouldn’t.

Who is Nick Hornstein? Here’s an interesting introduction. Start at 1:25 of this video, which features righteous metal music, along with sampled documentation of Nick’s criminal past.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXRLA5G ... 4_gDKaSwsf

Nick is a man with a history with the police going back years. He is 30 now, so when he was first arrested in 2001 he was 15. He’s been in and out of jail for years. The exact dates and reasons are difficult to interpret. Some reports suggest he had a very bad time with arrests from 2012 to 2014.

http://the-mugshot.website/mugshot/FL/A ... -Hornstein
http://www.peoplefinders.com/criminal-r ... gn=results

Unfortunately for Hornstein, his criminal past hasn’t been so good for his career, so he’s been a bartender in Gainseville, Florida for the last few years. Or, as the news says, maybe he's settled in Alabama now.

It would be fortunate for Nick Hornstein if he earned a nice chunk of extra change for selling rights to his ‘viral video’ to the hungry tabloid media. The police might look at him in a more positive light too, with the ‘evidence’ and testimony he offered to them and the world.

You can trust Nick, right?

Introducing Daniel “Dirty Dan” Daltas, shooting survivor



Daniel Vernon Daltas gave his exclusive story of how he was struggling for his very life inside the Pulse nightclub to RadarOnline.com, an entertainment and gossip website much like the National Enquirer. Daltas was likely reimbur$ed for telling his hideous story.

http://radaronline.com/celebrity-news/o ... oter-hero/

Don’t get fixated on RadarOnline, which is a crap rag. Instead, look at the testimony and ‘evidence’ presented by Daltas. He has a phone-video posted on his twitter account of inside the Pulse club. Here is his twitter, which has nothing about the shooting, except for one cryptic tweet from June 12.


It is a single tweet posted exactly at 1:36AM on the night of June12. That would be roughly 25 minutes before the shooting erupted. It features the inside party-action of the gay bar for 2-3 seconds. The point of the video is to persuade the watcher into thinking the bar was functioning as normal just before hell broke loose. To be fair, the video could have been from any night, then posted on June 12.

His tweeted video: https://twitter.com/dirtydan29/status/7 ... 6001565696

Dirty Dan said he watched several people get shot to death, such a ‘large black man’ who caught 5 bullets to the chest, along with Dan’s friend Jerry Wright. Here is victim Jerry Wright’s story:

http://heavy.com/news/2016/06/orlando-p ... ibutes/46/

Just when you think Dan’s story is not too different than most other survivors, he tweeted an incredible claim:

“I knocked the shooter over in the bathroom. I used the bathroom door as a shield!”
#pulsenightcluborlando I knocked the shooter over next to the bathroom, he wanted death. No idea what to say love everyone. #thinkofpeople
— Daniel Daltas (@dirtydan29) June 12, 2016

Here’s a video summarizing Dan’s story, all set to some sweet Metallica:

Well, Dirty Dan hasn’t had as much police trouble as Nick Hornstein, but he’s been arrested and jailed at least twice nonetheless: Once for drinking and driving, and the second time for breach of probation.

http://www.sheriffleefl.org/main/index. ... 8911676418
http://www.mugshot-media.com/Counties/F ... 61553.html

No doubt, these legal problems haven’t made Dan’s life any easier and probably bit into his income and life in general during the year before the shooting. His extraordinary claims about filming inside the Pulse night-club just before the attack, personally knowing a murdered victim, and seeing so many shot, coupled with his extraordinary claim of actually knocking the shooter over are all very… wild.

Jeannette McCoy: shooting survivor, fitness model, nutrition salesperson, and former ‘Lingerie Football League’ star on MTV and FuseTV

Image Image

McCoy was a survivor of the Orlando event, and escaped to tell about it (in fact, it seems she told every media outlet she could find). Her story: she had just finished dancing with her friend Angel Colon when the gunman opened fire. Bullets coming in her direction caught her friend Angel in the back and leg. Once outside, she claimed to have yelled at arriving police officers to enter the club and kill the shooter.

Here is Jeanette speaking and telling her story to Nightline:

Said Jeanette: “The only reason I’m not dead is because the bullet he [Angel Colon] took in his back probably would have been in my back,” Jeannette recalled.

http://hollywoodlife.com/2016/06/14/who ... -survivor/
http://nypost.com/2016/06/12/i-could-sm ... of-terror/
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... story.html

Orlando Shooting Witness Tells Her Story | The New York Times

Jeanette goes on to tell British TV audiences:

Who is Jeanette “the real” McCoy?



She is 37 and from New York City, having moved to Orlando in the last few years. She is an ambitious person, making it clear she wants to pay the bills as a single mom. She’s a fitness model, exercise consultant, nutrition consultant and salesperson, Visalus ‘regional manager’ selling Neon energy drinks, and a former ‘Lingerie Football League’ star on MTV and FuseTV. Her career with the LFL Orlando Fantasy expansion team led to a photoshoot with Playboy.

http://www.lfl360.com/lfl-north-america ... o-fantasy/

She is not an actor but a natural public speaker. She specializes in network promotions and trying to convince people of stories, ultimately to make a living from it. Being in the publicity and fitness world, it’s also fair to say she wants to display herself online quite a lot to promote her entrepreneurial activities. From her LFL days, she is accustomed to being on camera and doing interviews. She seems skilled with marketing herself and whatever she is selling. Here she is back in June 2014 using her aggressive oratory skills to promote her new Visalus career:


In the video she explains how she was successful and then recently experienced a big financial downfall. She lost her LFL career and her personal business. “Everything crashed down,” she explained, and said that she had to do something to take care of her son. Then, in her sales pitch, she brags how she took loans and then made a big comeback with ViSalus sales in merely four months.

ViSalus is apparently some kind of direct sales/pyramid scheme company that got into trouble. There were lawsuits and investigations: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ViSalus

“ViSalus was investigated by the Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation which published a detailed report that assailed the company's business model and high probability that investors will lose their money in the scheme.”

It’s very possible that our Jeanette McCoy never really made much money from Visalus and may have even lost money. What kind of financial position was she in from 2015 to 2016?

Also in the video is another ViSalus director named Jordan Delacruz. He is coincidentally the same man who has a dramatic video at Angel Colon’s GofundMe website:

Brandon Wolf: shooting survivor and former reality TV star


Brandon Wolf is a singer, dancer, and aspiring actor whose dreams for a career in the entertainment industry did not pan out. He became a Starbucks store training manager. He is from Canby, Oregon, and moved to Orlando a few years ago.


His Youtube account featuring him singing:
https://www.youtube.com/user/uobrando/v ... shelf_id=1

Kandi Factory BravoTV Star Survives Attack:
http://news.lalate.com/2016/06/12/orlan ... es-attack/


After high school, Wolf worked for Starbucks before receiving an offer from Disney World to work as a parade performer in its Orlando theme park. In 2013, he appeared on a Bravo! reality TV series, “The Kandi Factory,” a competition-based show that chronicled Kandi Buress, known for her role on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” trying to help aspiring musicians jumpstart their careers. Wolf appeared in Episode 4, “Hoodwinked, Bamboozled and Ambushed.”

http://portlandtribune.com/pt/9-news/31 ... o-shooting
According to Wikipedia, during his short stint in the popular but cancelled reality-TV show, Brandon Wolf “possesses all the attributes for stardom besides flavor.”


A frustrated Brandon Wolf continued to get work as a singer-dancer at Disney World, while also working at Starbucks in Orlando. He either left or was let go by Disney World in 2013. In his twitter account, he followed several casting and talent companies, so it appears he was still interested in pursuing a career in entertainment, a goal which did not work out. At the same, Starbucks employed him as a staff training manager. The company eventually wanted to him to leave the country and be a Starbuck manager in Trinidad.

Brandon also visited Pulse night club several times before the shooting. On June 12, he went to Pulse with his friends Juan Guerrero and Christopher (Drew) Leinonen, who were both killed.

Here is Brandon Wolf’s short description of the event on CNN

Angel Colon: first research into his background

He is, or was, an aspiring model. According to him, 2 1/2 years ago he set on that path after losing 100 pounds.

Good, short vid:

Patience Carter: actor on the set of TV show "Madame Secretary"

Her instagram is PatienceProductions. These photos were taken 18 weeks before today, July 05 2016.

On the set of #MadamSecretary #Cbs #NigerianGirl The adventures never stop with me lol

Four days after her femur was "shattered" by a .223 and the same bullet also passed through her opposite thigh, Patience Carter stood up to meet and greet Obama. She is one ultra-tough lady. Obama does not urge her to sit. It's apparently a standing only photo-op.

Deonka Drayton: Orlando shooting victim and repeat criminal


Deonka Drayton was one of the 49 slain in the Pulse night-club shooting. 32, she was originally from South Carolina. She moved to Miami and then settled in Orlando. She worked as a bartender at the club.

http://heavy.com/news/2016/06/deonka-de ... -memorial/

Deonka had brain damage from a childhood automobile injury?
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/pul ... story.html

“Deonka, who family and friends often called “Dee Dee,” had minor brushes with the law in her past, but family members told the Sentinel that she had moved on from those issues.”
http://www.southstrandnews.com/20160616 ... o-massacre

Actually those troubles in the past were not behind Deonka. She had earlier arrests in 2014 and before (?), and she was also arrested one year ago in June 2015 for a wide range of changes, including 2 felonies (selling cocaine and breach of probation). I am looking for a better copy of her 2014 arrests (it involves drugs). Here is her 2015 Arrest Report - Description provided by Orange County Sheriff's Office:

http://florida.arrests.org/Arrests/Deon ... _22355088/

"She was doing better [when I spoke to her last month]," said Ashleigh Alleyne, Drayton's girlfriend from 2010 to about 2015. "She was still on probation, but she wasn't getting in trouble."
https://www.lifeposts.com/p/milestone/5 ... lifestory/

Deonka Drayton was still on probation as early as May 2016. She could have been on probation during June as well.

Her presentencing was in June 2015. Then came the sentencing at court. Then came likely jail time. It is even possible that she just got out of jail at the time of the shooting. Or was she even at the shooting?

Without more information, we can summarize with these facts: She was in some recent trouble and her ‘minor brushes with the law’ were not ancient history and nor were they minor brushes.

The woman presented as Deonka’s mother volunteered for an interview. It was, like many of these family-victim interviews, kind of strange. Completely unperturbed, the mother said she was “at peace”, not ‘tormented’, and didn’t feel “per se… unrest” by hearing of her daughter’s murder.
http://www.wltx.com/news/local/deonka-d ... /246205903

Some people have wondered if this woman reacted more like a foster parent, legal guardian, or a distant relation. Or like someone who hadn't lost their daughter. She added that she and her husband forgave the Orlando gunman very quickly.

Joshua Lee Edward McGill: public hero and secret hooligan criminal


On June 12, 2:49 AM, Josh McGill wrote the following Facebook post describing how he saved an injured man’s life right outside the Pulse night club. The man, identified as Pulse bartender Rodney Sumter, would have bled to death had McGill not intervened. “I felt God put me at the club and made me stay behind to help a complete stranger,” Wrote McGill. “For whatever reason that may be.. I don't know, but I do know it was hopefully to save his life. Maybe God be with us all in this time of need.”

https://www.facebook.com/joshua.mcgill1 ... 3711309944

(Remember the name Rodney Sumter, the shot-up Pulse bartender. His story runs through a few witness tales, and I'll get to him later.)

McGill's tale is that of the Good Samaritan. It’s story-ish, simple, and hitting the buttons that most everyone has. Every good tale, no matter how dark, has to have positive aspects and heroes, right? It helps the audience ease through the troubles and emerge.

McGill became one of the stars of the Event. The media loved him and he was interviewed multiple times. Here are some sample big network interviews:

CNN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ru7GG7mjRZU
BBC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzMXmPEQOxE
ABC (starting at 2:20): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPeVCftvACI
FOX (Gretchen): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQpWkzSWK5Q

More official information about McGill’s story:
http://news10.com/2016/06/13/with-a-bea ... n-orlando/
http://abc7news.com/news/orlando-shooti ... r/1383446/
http://heavy.com/news/2016/06/joshua-mc ... an-rodney/

Joshua Lee Edward McGill, the nursing student and hero of Orlando, has had a series of recent arrests. In fact, he was arrested and sentenced three separate times within the year leading up to the Orlando shooting: June 06, 2015; Nov 13, 2015; and Feb 11, 2016. I don’t know about the first two, but according to his records he definitely was put in jail after his 3rd run-in with the police in Feb 2016.

We can say with some confidence that after McGill’s third arrest in such a relatively short time, he was in some real trouble just before the Orlando event. It seems the future hero of Orlando was actually a menace to the public, and the courts were no doubt running out of patience and forgiveness.

And during the night of the Orlando event, he said he was running to his personal vehicle. He was driving that night after 3 DUIs, and having his license suspended multiple times before? Hmmmm.


See below for his missing 3rd mugshot.

Feb 11 2016 arrest:
1. Dui - Driving While Under The Influence,
2. Attach Tag/lic Plate To Unassigned Vehicle,
3. Driving While License Suspended (dwls),
4. Dui Property Damage Or Personal Injury

https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/ ... clnk&gl=ca

Nov 13 2015 arrest:
3. Driving while license suspended (2 prior convictions). STATUTE: 322.34(2)(C) (THIRD DEGREE FELONY)

Marcus Godden: shooting survivor, key witness, and career criminal pt 1


Marcus Godden didn’t receive the same high level of media exposure as the ‘top tier’ witnesses, although he still received a good deal of media attention nevertheless. He dramatically explained his experience, over and over, to any camera-man and microphone-wielding journalist who would approach him. His stories got more and more incredible, to the point where Marcus said he stood 15 feet from the shooter. He got a very good look at Mateen (probably the best out of all the witnesses), although he was unable to describe what he actually looked like – other than saying he was a ‘snake bastard’ who gazed at the Club party-goers as if they were scum.

Last of all, Marcus Godden belonged to a minority of witnesses spreading speculation that there were several shooters. I am almost sure that this claim is a red herring, designed to cloud the waters and to entice the misled conspiracy buffs who think it was an elaborate real plot of mass murder.

For that reason, it is possible that Marcus Godden was not selected as a ‘top tier’ witness. Another reason was that Marcus had very embellished tales that bordered on the absurd. He wasn’t as professional as any Norman Cassiano, Chris Hansen, or Patience Carter. Perhaps the last reason was that -- even though Marcus was portrayed as an informative survivor – he is also happens to be an infamous petty criminal with a giant record of arrests and convictions.

No criminals belong in the top tier witness category. The actors and performers own that spot.
