For approx. 5 years, activist and alleged CPS victim, Melissa Diegal took to social media in a variety of livestreams. In these videos, she would discuss her case against CPS, often pointing to the health condition of her children, who were on feeding tubes and wheelchair bound. In her final livestream, Melissa is seen being arrested by the U.S Marshalls, but why?
We recently obtained the above images from an anonymous source. According to these documents, Diegal is being arrested on eight accounts of child abuse and domestic violence. As we all know, however, accusation does not mean guilt. With that in mind, we probed around for more information.
We found several postings regarding the Diegal arrest. Within these posts were several comments that caught our attention. In the past, several people had questioned Diegal about her case. They never got a response, they were instantly blocked. On the phone, we spoke to a licensed advocate. She told WoC that she began asking Diegal questions. Her final question was, “why are you making this about you and not your children?” To this, she to was blocked.
The act of blocking people who ask, what we presume were the wrong questions, is suspicious. What we also find suspicious is the fact it was the U.S Marshalls who conducted her arrest. We have also recieved reports that her children are no longer on the feeding tubes, nor are they bound to wheelchairs. This information leads us to ask, “how do two children miraculously recover after being removed from their mother?”
We are going to follow this case, for now we withold our determination of guilt and innocence. What we do know is it is unusual for the U.S. Marshalls to be involved. Under normal conditions, she would be arrested by local police and sent to the arresting state. This action leads us to believe the prosecuting state has enough to establish guilt, it also implicates Diegal to be a flight risk.
If she is guilty, than for the past five years, she was successful in fooling everybody. However, it would fit into the category of Munchausen by proxy, a condition to which an individual keeps a person sick in attempt to gain attention. As it stands now, the CPS arena is again conflicted; those who scream abuser and those who scream innocent. To these claims, only time will tell.
