Allie Overstreet and Mark Supanich lie in apparent plot to discredit Bill Windsor and Lawless America over faked suicide of a boy.
At half past midnight on February 21, 2013 (actually February 22 at that point), I received a Facebook message allegedly from Brenda Williamson, a mother who I filmed. The message read: “Bill, I don’t know if you remember me or not. I was filmed in XXXXXXXXXXXX on XXXXXXX. You also interviewed my 16 yr old son XXXXXXXX who was illegally taken from me and horribly abused in foster care and and group homes. They finally won. My son took his own life yesterday morning. He was afraid they would take him again and he wrote a letter saying he could not live through it again. My fight is over. They have won. They have destroyed my son. Thank you for being so nice to him in XXXXXXXXX. He really enjoyed the experience. I hope your movie helps people. I, however, have given up hope. Good luck and again thank you.” [REDACTED]
I immediately tried to respond to her message, but Facebook showed that the account was closed or that any response was blocked. I absolutely recognized her Facebook name, because it is an unusual name.
I spent several hours preparing a tribute to the boy, posting an article, videos, Facebook posts, etc. I believe these were posted at about 2:00 am. There was an outpouring of love and prayers.
At 2:06 am on February 22, 2013, I received this private message from Mark Supanich that was a copy of a posting that he made online: “There Is a recent Post on Lawless America that XXXXXX Is dead I know for a fact that he is is alive and well. He just had a bologa sandwicth . last I checked dead people don’t eat. Whoever Is spreading this false information should be ashamed of themselves. At least check your stories for facts before devastating friends and families with untruths. Please share this with all your friends to put a stop to this!!” [REDACTED]
This is false. Mark Supanich did not know for a fact that XXXXXX was alive and well. XXXXXX had not just eaten a bologna sandwich. XXXXXX is indeed alive, but he has been ill, and he was in the hospital, so he clearly was not “well.” Just the opposite. This is proven in a telephone conversation with the boy’s mother, emails from the boy’s mother, and ultimately in postings by Allie Overstreet.
At 2:16 am on February 22, 2013, I received another private message from Mark Supanich: “Someone is really screwing up with this. XXXXXXXX his mother is a mess about this false news.”
This is false. The mother knew nothing about any of this. She told me so by telephone and stated so in an email to me. The mother said she didn’t even know a Mark Supanich.
At 2:22 am on February 22, 2013, I received another private message from Mark Supanich: “She is devastated Bill I don’t think she wants to talk with you but sent the meassage on to her.”
This is false. The mother wasn’t devastated; she was apparently asleep. She told me she was unaware of any of this. And she indicated that she never received a message from Mark Supanich.
I removed everything about this from LawlessAmerica.com and Facebook after the first message. I believe there are only a half dozen people in the world who could have written what is in the Facebook message claiming death. If this was a hoax, I felt that we’ve got a very ill woman on our hands. I know I didn’t do this, and I couldn’t imagine that XXXXXX did. That left the mom, Allie Overstreet, and two others who were people filmed on issues unrelated to children and family court.
At approximately 3:00 am on February 23, 2013, Allie Overstreet posted on the Lawless America Facebook page. That posting was subsequently deleted apparently by her, but I managed to get a screenshot. She wrote:
“Allie Overstreet pfft….I saw your “XXXXXX commited suicide” comment and panicked. I know XXXXXX and his mother very well in real life. I called her immediately because I knew something wasnt right with your story. I had just spoken to them three hours prior. Sure enough, he is alive and well and she is in shock that you would post that. Do not play like I had anything to do with this. That is just cruel. I love XXXXXX very much and know him personally. XXXXXXXX and XXXXXX aren’t even your followers. I talked them into filming with you, and she has only had minimal contact since XXXXXXXXXXX with you. She is not on fb very much, does not read your wall, and is not known by your followers. She did not do this. And a man in Montana wasn’t watching young boys in Missouri eating. I told him XXXXXX was alive because your post caused alot of pdople to pray, cry, and mourn, including Mark in Montana. It was only right I let him know that XXXXXX was not dead. And really, Bill, what if he was dead? You think it is okay to post that stuff without even knowing if it was okay with his mom ? She is crying herveyes out and cursing up a storm because you knew her son IS suicidal from CPS. My God Bill, have some compassion. And try asking people before you go saying their son is dead. I know XXXXXXXX and she did not send you that. I certainly did not send you that. You are out of line. I have done nothing to you, and have been kind in explaining why Icam not here anymore. Why would you put my name in a post suggesting I sent this sick piece of garbage? Say your sorry for Gods sake, instead of accusing everybody for YOUR mess ups. XXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX is alive and well. Leave him alone.”
At 6:37 am on February 22, 2013, I received this reply from the mother:
From: XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX

Subject: Re: Facebook message from Your Facebook Account
Bill, i just woke up to this message. I haven’t been on Facebook for over a week except through my mobile app and playing bejeweled. I don’t know what’s going on! I don’t know a marc supanich and haven’t spoken to lori in a while. This is very upsetting to me because no, XXXXXX is not dead but he is in the hospital REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED. I have also, in the past, received horrible emails from some crazy ladies against you and lawless America sayingsaying things about noah REDACTED-REDACTED-REDACTED. I don’t know what’s going on. I tried to log onto Facebook to look in my messages and it keeps saying i have the wrong log in or password. I can still log in automatically with my mobile app through the game though and i can’t find you, or anyone else related to lawless america. I am going to report this. I am scared and don’t know what to do. And nobody has seen XXXXXX except me and the hospital staff and he hates bologna. What the heck is going on?
So, in this email from the mother, she establishes that much of the above is false. If the mother is telling the truth, Allie’s post and Mark’s posts were LIES.
