While Alex may seem charming on the out side, he also has a very dangerous side to him that most do not see except in the home where he lives. He is an excellant con artist who can manupulate you into believing what ever he wants from you. He killed my one year old poodle the first two weeks he came into my home, stabbed two dairy cows with a pitch fork causing them to die a slow death before we found out what had happened. He also killed several baby goats on our farm.
He ran away to the neighbors house telling them he did not know the Kinghorns and that his folks came from the Ukraine and dropped him off in Meadowlands while they went onto Minneapolis to live.
He tried to stab many other of our dogs, put codeine in my coffee which I am alergic to. Dirt into the bakery buckets of flour and sugar of which we ate from. Hid weapons contantly to use on his siblings, and dogs, as well as broke as many things as he could in the home. He also broke the front tooth of my baby when she was a year old.

Sweet, cute and charming you bet he is look up RAD and you will know more about the RAD child. I personally do not ever want him to know where we live as we all feel he is a threat to my family, and fully believe he would try to locate us and do us harm. This is why Michelle and Jeff decided to return him to the too.
Also for the record we were never being investigated for taking in children illegally as we had an attorney, we paid thousands of dollars to to adopt the four children. We were unaware at that time that Mn was not a private adoption state which is why we moved to AR.
Alex was with us for two years and then we could not longer to take the stress he caused us, as well as I could no longer retrain him as he was too strong for me, and when he blew up I did not have the luxury of thorazine shots the mental health system is allowed to give to those who are out of control.
Yes my former husband did a horrible thing during his mental illness, but we loved Alex with all our hearts. But for the best interest of the other children in our home we felt we could no longer keep him in our home, nor finalize his adoption into our family.
If you need an outside witness to many of his actions please contact Lloyd Olds in Meadowlands MN he can verify Alex's behaviors as they saw him on many occasions flipping out and destroying my home,and during church services!
it would be nice to get the full story before you make unfounded and hurtful accusations about families who are trying to help the children no one wants!

At least you tried. Many, many people are so quick
to judge you but, never willing to go through with
what you and your ex-husband tried. Sound to me like he is a bad seed and should be institutionalized. Good luck.

Hi Glenda, I'm a reporter with the Duluth News Tribune working on a follow-up story to the one the Pioneer Press published. I'm hoping to do an interview with you regarding Alex and want to provide a chance to add additional information to the story. Please, please contact me at 218-720-4154 or email me at bstahl@duluthnews.com.
Thanks,

Excellent article!! It scares me that this "bad seed" will eventually slip through the system
and be an adult here in the U.S.A. Personally,
we have enough problems-ship him back to Russia,
Let them deal with him!!

So now you say David Kinghorn is mentally ill? Go figure. Last you said he was on drugs and flipped out. What ever it is ,you had no business with taking in any children for any reason. For gods sake, these children need safe, healthy place to stay. If your husband was so bad off, why would you subject these children to more adversity in their lives?? Oh I know, its about the money.

Gee must be Bill kinghorn from all the comments from Sacramento, the one who had sex with "HIS " own bio sister Dorothy kinghorn Burns! I guess it runs in your famiy Bill! and Debbie Your daughter, who had an abortion right after she got married so "daddy" wouldn't know his little yellow tulip was PG when she got married! It is interesting that all the blame has been shifted off of David and all onto Glenda in all of this isn't it?!

Dear Survivor ...

I am looking for one of the children living with the Kinghorns.

We are a family that placed our child with them because we believed it was a good home, and so much better to help our child through the problems that we could not help with. We thought we were doing the right thing and CPS agreed, at that time, that it was a good placement.

But ... for the past three years we have doubted and begun to grow very concerned. Glenda no longer responds to our efforts to reach her. Mail we send to the address comes back as undeliverable.

We are so scared and worried. Can you please email me? Please.
