I apologize, Mr. Quigley, but it appears that
Beldon's daughter, Lauren, did express some suspicion, or perhaps I misunderstood her comments.

In any event, I deliberately placed a disclaimer
at the end of my comments, that my comments are NOT
fact, until proven by investigation.

If other readers also agree I need psychiatric help
and need to take medication, then you have nothing
to worry about.

In any event, you better believe I will not
post my true name in a situation like this.

I also did not act impulsively, but if I
have, in fact, used poor judgement, then
I will apoligize again and be more careful
in the future.

Your apology is accepted and I will happily close this subject forever. I make allowances for grieving relatives, of course, because the horrible shock of unexpected death often leads to an inability to immediately accept what are, to others, obvious facts.

I am a little sensitive on this subject because my wife and I were friends of Beldon's. I spoke with him just before he died. Like others, I wish I had been there and able to do something. Nobody killed him, or would ever want to. It was a tragic accident that happens all too often to ab divers. We all dive knowing the risk. Maybe we're stupid, or maybe we just love nature too much.

I simply ask, out of respect for my friend's memory, that people not use his passing as an occasion for idle gossip and speculation. Thanks.

I think Lauren Yee stated in one of her comments, that
Beldon Yee's friend gave conflicting accounts of what
happened, and that is why I posted my statements.

However, I have since done some additional research
on this matter, and I have finally concluded that
this entire account, comments posted, and the obituaries
are nothing more than false information, a deliberate
deception to fool peoplel into thinking Beldon Yee is
deceased, when in fact he is not.

You better believe I will not post my true name, here.
Besides, I think you can figure who I really am, anyway.

Please stop it Larry, or I will be forced to conclude that you are 5150 or drunk. Don't you have something better to do than invent nonsense about a really wonderful guy who was taken from us too soon by a tragic accident?

I'm not going to read any more posts here, or post any myself. This has gotten insane and I decline to participate further. Please, please, in the name of decency and out of respect for Beldon, let it go. Please.

Over and out.

Re: Murder Conspiracy / Derish-Silver Situation

Due to recent events, and the fact that Beldon J. Yee is associated with Seth D. Derish and the Church of Scientology, I have no choice, but to place the following statement, in the form of an open letter.

It is still my position that Beldon Yee is not deceased, and that all of this false information has been posted, for the purposes of deceiving and evading law enforcement.


July 3, 2011

All Concerned Law Enforcement Agencies:

If I am reported as missing or found murdered, Seth D. Derish, Seth Derish, Shirley M. Lerner and Lorraine R. Castleman, should be investigated as the likely conspirators.

The actual perpetrator will most likely be Beldon J. Yee, or an unknown murder contractor.

Their motives are as follows.

1) Long term obsessions of Seth D. Derish,
Seth Derish toward me.

2) Long term hostility of my sisters, Shirley M. Lerner and Lorraine R. Castleman, toward me.

3) Possible probate or inheritance issues regarding the estates of my sisters, Shirley M. Lerner and Lorraine R. Castleman.

Many months have passed since I last viewed these comments, so there are several that are new to me. Let me clarify some things: I've been a pro photojournalist and documentary photographer for 40 years, with photos published by the New York Times and many major newspapers and magazines; I'm not some amateur paparazzo trying to cash in on somebody's tragedy, as some commenters assumed. I gladly furnished all of the photos to the victim's daughter as soon as she contacted me. The local newspaper is a for-profit business owned by a large corporation, Media-News. I offered them breaking news photos of our volunteer fire department rescuers in action, not photos of a corpse. My point is that the paper is cheap, and greedy too. They charge an exorbitant fee for a display ad, but they will not pay a penny for professional news photos not taken by their own staffer, who was not there.

You're a paranoid nutcase! I witnessed Mr. Yee's body being brought in and watched and photographed a team of more than eight EMTs from various agencies trying their best to resuscitate him.

Get help, and a life.

As a matter of fact, I have been receiving lots
of help or assistance from my local
police department, and other law enforcement agencies
involved in this matter, for this past year.

I hope this finally clarifies this situation.

I was trying to reconnect with Beldon as I now work in San Bruno. I checked LinkedIn and no luck. Then an awful feeling came over me and I Googled Beldon Yee. There was is obituary. I am so sorry Lauren. Your dad was such a generous and loving man. I have very fond memories of your dad, you, and your mom. And what a treat at your grandpa's place in Nevada City when your dad brought some abalone steaks for dinner! I will miss him very much.

Love and Blessings to you all.

I am presuming this thread has been reopened,
perhaps for a reason. At this time, other related
sensitive family issues, have become obvious.

I believe it is most important, that I
assure all concerned, that those other personal,
sensitive, connected family issues are safe with me.

It is for this reason also,
that I placed no names in my comments,
posted here. I hope this should finally close
this matter. My thanks, to all concerned,
for your patience and assistance.

Sadly this is another example of the demise of the humans. The ancient Ones are in the skies circling the earth as I write and waiting for the time to take control of the earth and what will be left of the humans. Now is the time to reunite with family and friends and speak to the end of time in a positive manner and way. Rejoice that the earth will continue for the few and the many will behold the kingdom of the greys. All is written in the book of dog.

Needless to say, I simply want to clarify
further, that I do not wish to become part of,
or associated with the Church of Scientology,
at any time.

This is my mistake.
I should NOT have fed the troll.
This is not a laughing matter.
My apologies,

It has been more than apparent for sometime, that I was born from an
extramarital affair, and that my legal stepfather, B.J. Silver, was not my
actual father, although I legally have his last name.

In addition, I have also learned fairly recently that my unknown
natural father was none other than A.B. McGuire.
In addition, this also means I have three half sisters I never knew.

These recently discovered half sisters are C.R. Rosenfeld,
D.L. Williamson and P.J. McGuire. At this time, I wish to add
their names to the list of possible conspirators, in the event I am
reported as missing or found murdered. Their motive is definitely
a personal animosity issue involving D.L. Williamson, which I will
decline to explain here. This issue is also similar to the personal
animosity issues involving my other half sisters, Lorraine R. Castleman
and Shirley M. Lerner, which I have also declined to explain here.

In addition, all of these possible conspirators, named in this thread,
have already been convicted of various degrees or murder or murder conspiracy.
These convictions, alone, would be another possible motive for retaliation.

Law enforcement is already more than familiar
with the exact details of this situation.

It has been made more than clear, by the Church of Scientology,
that they wish me to join their community. Strangely, I currently
live on a Social Security check. This makes me totally unable to
pay for their expensive services, even if I was interested.

At my age, over 60, I certainly don't have the energy
to work 60 - 80 hours a week to pay for their services.

Instead, I am accepting their agenda is based upon the
fact, I likely will receive large inheritances in the future.
This would concern the estates of L.R. Castleman and
S.M. Lerner, because it now appears they will likely
die intestate (without a will made or trust established).

Since I was never legally part of the McGuire family,
it is my conclusion that the estate of P.J. McGuire
is not of any concern to me, at all.

Again, law enforcement knows the full
details of this situation, better than I.
The extreme danger, presented to me in this
situation, has forced me to post this information.

There are also some irregularities I have noticed,
when posting my comments.

First, when using the search term "beldon yee" on the topix.com
website itself, I get no results. When I use the search term "abalone diver", I also don't get any results about beldon yee.

Only when doing a simple Google search, using the search terms "beldon yee", is the only time I get results, for Beldon Yee.

In addition, whenever I post a comment here, the words "Join the Community" temporarily appear under my name I use here, PFOBY.

It is for these reasons, that I would conclude that this particular thread is NOT operated or maintained by the website, topix.com , but instead actually maintained by the Church of Scientology, who really wants me
to "join the community".

It is just not something I want to do, especially
given the lifestyle of many Scientologists, which is
simply not a legitimate lifestyle. I am an independent,
practical person, who does not easily sell myself to questionable
financial opportunity. I have learned the hard way, long before,
that money is not everything.

RE: Beldon J. Yee

At this time, I would like to add Beldon Yee to the list of possible
conspirators, in the event I am reported as missing or found murdered.

Beldon Yee has since been apprehended and convicted of murder.

At this time, I would like to express my desire and offer,
to end this dangerous family feud. More than myself,
I am concerned that more people will become incarcerated,
long term.

It is my position, that I am being blamed for personal
issues, that I truly did not cause. I certainly have not
been a partner in anyone's infidelity, which I think is
the issue with three people I described earlier.

Regardless of anyone's position, there can be
no actual winners in this situation. This feud
must stop.
