My Invitation To The Department Of Justice To Return To Missoula To Investigate The Sheriff’s Department And A Call For National Coverage!

by Travis Mateer

Am I getting impatient? Fuck yeah I’m getting impatient! Below (far down) you’ll find 9 minutes and 23 seconds of that impatience, which spilled forth to a meager crowd of freedom supporters on the Missoula County Courthouse lawn yesterday, May 7th, 2022.

But before that video clip, I want you to look at the following image and ask yourself: what the hell am I looking at?

I hope this image is making some people VERY nervous right now because I don’t think its release was anticipated.

UPDATE: it’s important to note this particular sonar image was taken by a community volunteer, not Northstar Search and Rescue. The sonar image was submitted to authorities on August 10th, 2021.

You see, for this image to surface in JUST THE PAST WEEK, some interesting things had to happen, but it’s difficult to explain to those outside of what’s been transpiring since Rebekah Barsotti went missing nine months ago. There’s just so much.

Part of the problem is the general public operates on some faulty assumptions, and one of the biggest is that those in authority, in a missing person case like this, are there to HELP and to give a grieving family ALL the information they possess in order find whoever is missing.

Well, I’m going to flip that dangerous assumption on its head, because families need to understand how this image nearly got buried, along with the report providing scathing context to our HELPERS, like Lowell “Hat-Rack” Hochalter and Bill “Liquid Expert” Burt.

Here is my understanding: if Rebekah’s family hadn’t hired, at their own personal expense, additional searching services by the Minnesota-based outfit, Northstar Search and Rescue, then this FIRST report, which I’m going to be providing some key screen shots of, wouldn’t have been provided AT ALL.

That means we wouldn’t get to see Bill and Lowell’s name right at the beginning of this report:

The most concerning and absolutely HEARTBREAKING part of this report is what happened on August 20th, when the above image was taken and reported to…Bill fucking Burt. Then what happens? Do the search and rescue people leave for home without finding out if the image shown is a body or, as Bill Burt told Rebekah’s family, just a pile of rocks?

And then there’s the possibility of bloody clothes, evidence that Bill Burt apparently was eager to retrieve.

What, you didn’t know about the possibility of bloody clothes? It’s almost like there’s an ENTIRE WORLD of things happening that the media is somehow incapable of telling the public about. Weird.

Here’s a snapshot from Angela Mastrovito’s meticulous timeline:

This critical context from last August is made EVEN MORE maddening when you consider the most recent official communication to Rebekah’s family from Mineral County about her case, which I read aloud yesterday.

Here is the language of the update, written EXACTLY how it was received, typos and all:

I understand your conclusion here, However, Rebekah’s case is still open/active, it is labeled inactive as currently there are no creditable leads to investigate , if we get a new lead the case move back to active while we investigate the lead, if the lead pans out we keep following, if it doesn’t pan out then we revert the case back to inactive awaiting the next lead. Unfortunately Rebekah’s case will continue to remain “open” until we find her Alive and well or her remains are identified through DNA. This brings us right back to what we have stated before the case is still open so we cannot release any of the evidence until the case is closed.

This language is really something. Alcohol? That would be one explanation. I offer a different one in the video below, which I encourage you to listen to despite the unsteady video.

This glimpse I’m trying to provide of larger movements behind the scenes is really just the tip of a massive iceberg, which makes me think of a good question to ask EVERYONE living in this town:

How do you like living on the Titanic, Missoula?

I did my best yesterday to provide a warning of what’s coming and, dare I say, the screamers at the other end of the Missoula County Courthouse actually DID quiet down for a few seconds to listen to my VERY LOUD voice. But did they HEAR me?

If they did, they would have a small inkling that what’s happening here to missing bodies and trafficked bodies and black bodies–and the carefully structured network of public/private complicity that keeps the scope of this evil cancer occluded from the public–is about to break wide open, and I can only hope those I’ve tried to warn, both publicly, and in private communications, wake the fuck up before it’s too late.

If you’re reading this, YOU could be an agent of change, so please act accordingly.

And my apologies for the lateness of this post, especially to any of you EAGER readers out there wondering how yesterday’s demand for a DOJ investigation and call for national coverage was going to translate into further documentation of the serious problems that have gone unaddressed for way too long. I had some VERY important research to conduct.

Thanks for reading, and stay tuned, because more interesting content is on its way!

  1. Travis,

    Thank you so much for participating in the Face Your Freedom rally yesterday on the courthouse lawn. We chose that location specifically because it represents the government that administers “justice” in America. Ah, yes, “…with liberty and justice for all.” Except persons like Rebekah Barsotti or Jermain Charlo, who will probably never receive it.

    Since I cannot post photos here, I will direct you to our website page where you can see some of the activity at the rally.

    It is disheartening and sad that our work to bring justice and freedom to others seems to fall on deaf ears, but we cannot quit. If we do nothing to correct the wrongs of society, who will? If not me, then who? If not now, when?

    Carry on, my friend. I appreciate you.
