Adams, Arthur Curtis
b. Oct. 12,1977 d. Aug. 25, 2017




Arthur Adams had stayed behind in Rockport to board up homes in the area and was hoping to leave before the storm made landfall, which it later did as a Category 4 hurricane with wind speeds of about 130 mph. When Christi and the couple's son left the day before to take shelter with family, Arthur let them know he was hoping to borrow a truck to evacuate on Friday. That did not happen. "He said, 'I'm going to be fine,' " Christi Adams said. "We just can't believe he's gone," she said. "It's just a terrible tragedy."

Christi Adams said she and Arthur had been together for nearly 18 years. The couple were married by common-law, and Christi went by Arthur's last name, though her legal last name is "Rhodes." They planned to have a commitment ceremony on their 20th anniversary, she added. He leaves behind his wife and five children.

After a mandatory evacuation was issued on Aug. 24 for Rockport and the surrounding area, Arthur told Christi and their son to head to San Antonio to stay with another son, Josh, and his family. After learning that Arthur was unable to find transportation out of Rockport, Christi Adams said the family offered to turn around to go get him. Arthur refused, citing the heavy traffic north from the coastal areas, she said. Arthur was the first victim of hurricane Harvey. His parents were Curtis Henry Adams and Cathy Jean Stinson.

Delgado, Noah
b. Sept. 2008, Sept. 3, 2017



An 8-year-old boy died of an asthma attack after Hurricane Harvey after he couldn’t get treatment in time, according to his family.His mother, Tina Galan, used Noah’s inhaler to try to calm the attack but to no avail. Galan said that her repeated calls to 911 went unanswered as authorities fielded thousands of calls during the deadly storm. “I went outside with him to try and get him some air, thinking it would help. I thought, because the power was out, maybe it was too stuffy inside,” Galan told the New York Post. Once outside, however, she realized Noah wasn’t breathing. “I was doing CPR, and trying to get him to inhale the medicine, and the air, trying to get him to inhale anything at all,” Galan told the paper. A stranger in a truck passing by their home reportedly stopped and picked them up and began driving to the hospital. On the way, they spotted an ambulance, which took them the rest of the way, reports said. While receiving CPR, one of Noah's lungs collapsed, the family’s GoFundMe said. Noah was life-flighted from North Cypress Medical Center to Texas Children's Hospital, but there was no room on the helicopter for Noah's mom so a friend drove her to the hospital, she said. Galan got stuck in the floods along the way but the National Guard assisted them. Once she arrived at the hospital, doctors told her Noah's diagnosis looked grim. Even if he lived, he’d be brain dead, they told her. Noah was in a coma and on life support for three days before he died. Noah Delgado, who was just one week shy of his ninth birthday, was in his Houston home last Monday when he was stricken with a severe asthma attack, reports said.“Noah was loving and energetic, and lit up the room with his presence," he family wrote on the fundraiser."He was loved by all of his teachers and friends. He was a brave young man and loved a challenge. He loved playing video games, watching scary movies, home cooked meals and Pokemon.”

Guillen, Alonso
b. 1986 d. Aug. 30, 2017




Alonso Guillen, a 31-year-old disc jockey from Lufkin, disappeared on Wednesday around midnight along with two friends after their boat hit the bridge over the creek and capsized. One of them was rescued after clinging to a tree in the rushing water, but days later, after the rains let up and the creek level receded, Guillen and Tomas Carreon Jr. were still missing. Searchers spotted Carreon's body floating down the wide, swift-moving creek on Friday around 1 p.m. On Sunday afternoon, Guillen's body floated past a sandy berm where family members had been keeping watch for days, staring out at the murky water. A relative dove in and pulled him to the shoulder of the creek until they were able to bring a boat over to get him onto shore. Guillen's father, Jesus Guillen, said he'd asked his son not to try and rescue people in the storm, but he insisted, saying he wanted to help people. He cried and prayed on Sunday afternoon as they pulled his son's body from the water. "Thank you, God," he said, "for the time I had with him." The recovery of his body brings the number of people who have died or are feared dead from Harvey to nearly 60, and officials warn that more could be found. Guillen, who was born in Piedras Negras, Mexico, and moved to Lufkin as a teenager, headed south with his friends toward Houston after Hurricane Harvey, towing a borrowed boat. They were near Interstate 45 and Beltway 8 and trying to reach an apartment complex when they hit the bridge, relatives said. Alonso Guillen was a recipient of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which temporarily lifted the threat of deportation for immigrants brought to the U.S. before they were 16, family members said. His father is a lawful permanent, but his mother is still in the application process for legal status. Reached at her home in Piedras Negras, Mexico, across the border from Eagle Pass, Rita Ruiz de Guillen, 62, said she is heartbroken. "I've lost a great son, you have no idea," she said, weeping softly. "I'm asking God to give me strength." She said she hoped U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials would take pity and grant her a humanitarian visa so that she could come to Houston and bury her son, but she was turned back at the border. "When we are with God, there are no borders," she said. "Man made borders on this earth."

Pasek, Andrew Joseph
b. Dec. 6 1991 d. Aug. 29,2017

Andrew was electrocuted while trying to rescue his sister's cat in her flooded house. He was just in two feet of water when power leaked out of a lamp pole. The shock paralyzed him and he fell putting his hand on the pole. He was shocked and drowned. No rescue attempt could be made until power was turned off to the subdivision. He is survived by his mother Jodell Pasek who wants to warn people about the dangers in flood waters with live power. His parents are Albin Joseph Pasek and Ann Ajodell Tamborello.

Andrew Pasek, 25, was always bringing home stray animals. There was Mali the puppy, his mother recalled, a tabby he called Blu and a Tibetan spaniel named Coco.

So it surprised no one that on Tuesday, Andrew set out to retrieve his sister Alyssa’s cat, D’Artagnan, who had been left behind as the floodwaters rose in Houston.

Andrew drove to the home with his childhood friend, Sean Stuart, and they began wading through several feet of water toward his sister’s two-story house.

Suddenly, the two felt the jolt of an electrical current in the water, said Andrew’s mother, JoDell Pasek.

“Years ago, Andrew had had an accident and broken his ankle severely, and he had plates and pins in his ankle,” she said. “All of that electricity started going to everything in his ankle and he started jumping around.”

Andrew fell into a mailbox on a metal post. “He told Sean, ‘Get away from me, I’m dying,’” Ms. Pasek said, through tears. “He knew immediately that if Sean touched him, he would be electrocuted too.”

Officials in Harris County attributed his death to accidental electrocution, the ninth confirmed storm death in the county.

Sean’s mother called Ms. Pasek to tell her what had happened. “I get that phone call, my son is no longer alive,” she said. “I just started screaming. We’ve been friends since the kids were in kindergarten, so I know it was the hardest thing she had to do.”

Gathered at home in Houston, Andrew’s family was left wondering if they could have stopped him from trying to rescue D’Artagnan.

“We’ve all decided that no matter what we would have said, he would have gone anyway,” Ms. Pasek said. “That was just his nature.”

Shocked by underwater electrical wire and drowned. He was trying to rescue his sister's cat. Funeral September 2, 2017.

UPDATE: 09/13/2017

"Gemmel Moore, Hatchet Attack, Cannabis and the Resignation of Estevan Montemayor: WeHo Public Safety Commission’s Busy Agenda

Tue, Sep 12, 2017   By James Mills  
Capt. Sergio Aloma, head of the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station, last night explained the Sheriff’s Department’s approach to the death of Gemmel Moore, a young black escort, at the home of local political figure Ed Buck in July.

“Deputies received to a call for service at the address on Laurel [Avenue],” Aloma said, responding to a question for Estevan Montemayor of WeHo’s Public Safety Commission. “It was a person in some sort of medical distress.


Gemmel “Juelz” Moore (left) and Ed Buck (Facebook)
“They responded along with L.A. County Fire and paramedics who, once they got there, were rendering aid to the victim, Mr. Moore. The victim was subsequently deceased at the address. Our deputies who responded, along with the fire department, did not see anything that was obviously criminal in terms of foul play that was involved in his death.”

Aloma, speaking at the monthly Public Safety Commission meeting, said that his deputies contacted the sheriff’s homicide bureau, as is standard procedure. The homicide bureau decided it was an overdose death, which is not something they respond to.

Deputies also contacted the coroner’s office, which is also protocol. The coroner’s office also saw no evidence of foul play.

“Once the coroner’s office responded to the scene, they concurred with the deputies that this was possibly an overdose death and there was no foul play or malice of forethought, which you would need in a homicide for example, so they treated it as such,” Aloma said.

The intense media attention regarding Moore’s death caused the homicide bureau to open an investigation “out of an abundance of caution,” Aloma reported. He also confirmed that the district attorney’s office has granted limited immunity to a certain number of witnesses, “individuals who claim to have information and our homicide detectives are proceeding with interviews of those folks to see what information they have and what type of bearing it will have in the case,” Aloma said.

Although the homicide bureau is presently questioning the people granted immunity, at this time Ed Buck is not considered a suspect, Aloma said.

“We don’t know if there is in fact a crime yet,” he said. “That is still part of the investigation at the bureau to determine whether a crime actually occurred and to whether or not Mr. Buck, or anyone else, is a suspect in this case.”

Moore, 26, was found dead in Buck’s Laurel Avenue apartment on July 27. A report from the L.A. County Coroner’s Office states that the death was an accident and lists its cause as “methamphetamine use.” A Coroner’s Office spokesman has said that drug paraphernalia was discovered in Buck’s apartment.

Moore’s death has sparked outrage among members of the African-American community, many of whom accuse Buck, a white man in his early 60s who is relatively affluent, of exploiting young black men. Jasmyne Cannick, a political and media consultant who is working with Moore’s family, has published pages from the young man’s diary claiming an illicit paid relationship with Buck. Cannick has also published statements from other young black men who say Buck has paid them to use drugs with him. Buck to date has not responded to the allegations. However his lawyer has suggested that Buck simply was helping people in need.

At the suggestion of Commissioner Montemayor, the Public Safety Commission adjourned in honor of Gemmel Moore, a symbolic action taken to note the group’s sympathy over his death."

09/02/2017 DA agrees to give witnesses immunity. I don't think it will cause the DA to press charges as none were witnesses when Gemmel died. They can only provide circumstantial evidence. As the body was already given to the family I don't know if the coroner could tell if Gemmel died from injection or smoke inhalation.

http://www.wehoville.com/2017/08/31/l-district-attorney-grants-immunity-potential-witnesses-ed-buck-investigation/

08/29/2017 People coming out of the wood work about Buck. A man by the name of Mark Hefferan said he had to get a restraining order against Buck. He failed to mention that Buck got a restraining order against him first 04/11/2007 case # SS015023. A few other people said they also got restraining orders against Buck in Los Angeles County but no one else did. I searched LA County records. After I called out Mark Hefferan he PM'd me on FB and called me a "Trump supporter" then blocked me while he made nasty personal attacks against me. I voted for Bernie then Hillary. No Trump supporter here for sure. I hate Trump. Trump is harming our nation.

The writer of the "angry ranting woman playing the race card blog" recklessly throwing around innuendo and hearsay called me nasty names for calling out her false statements of alleged facts and conclusions. I even received death threats for posting a pic of Buck at our political convention. I took pics of EVERYONE at our political convention yet this woman said I stuck my "nose up Buck's ass." I posted all the photos in a public album which they saw. I'm not a close friend of Buck. We've had our differences on some issues.

The same blogger continues with her misinformation and attacks on Democrats, friends of Buck, anyone who was ever in a photo with Buck, anyone who ever took a photo of Buck.... I'm being attacked because I took a photo of Buck with Ted Leiu in 2013. I took a photo of EVERYONE at the event. This same lady is now attacking Leiu because he was in the photo. This woman states every politician who received a donation from Buck since 2008 should return it instantly. Buck has not been charged with a crime and most likely won't be charged. This woman believes that everyone should be attacking Buck. She's upset people are not attacking him. San people are waiting for the investigation and facts. This same lady says Buck is a racist because he's hasn't donated much to black politicians. Today we have the highest number of black senators ever in our history. There are 2/100 or 2%. Buck donated less to black politicians because there are fewer black politicians. This writer is one of those people who likes to rant and rave. Yelling at politicians for not attacking Buck does not help Moore or anyone else.

08/27/2017 So many reckless articles are being written about Ed Buck by non-journalists. One person commented "This article is full of innuendo, hearsay and selected factoids. The full investigation is what is needed, not idle gossip, like this article. The young man takes no personal responsibility for his dangerous drug use. He admits he goes back to Buck's place and does drugs. What? Was he kidnapped?" They complain that Democrats aren't calling out Buck as a "murderer" because they got donations from him. They aren't calling out Buck because they are waiting for facts, evidence and the result of the investigation. These people are also attacking all the politicians and PACs which received money from Buck dating back to 2008. Buck had no criminal record. He's not a money launderer or a Russian. Politicians should only refuse donations from heinous criminals, money launderers or people who aren't US citizens.

One blogger goes so far as to say Buck is a racist because he repeated a line from the movie "Blazing Saddles." They posted the below photo from a Facebook post. This woman did not know that "Blazing Saddles" written by Mel Brooks and Richard Pryor is a parody making fun of and calling out racists and their racist behavior. In case young people don't know who these people are Mel Brooks is a Jewish writer, actor. Richard Pryor was a black writer, actor and comedian. They both faced racism which is why they made fun of racism in their movies and acts.

In the 1974 movie "Blazing Saddles" the n word is said quite a few times. Each time it is said it's to show how stupid and racist its use is. The movie calls out racism about African Americans, Mexicans, Indians, Whites, Asian, Jews, women, men... Below is the Facebook communication between Buck and Neil Pople. Buck said he memorized the script of the movie. "It's scripture to me." That means he reveres it's anti-racist idea.




Here is the scene which states paraphrased "back off or the n***** get's it." The black sheriff freaks out the crowd by holding a gun to his own head and saying "Hold it. The next man makes a move the n***** gets it." He goes on to say "drop it or I swear I blow this n****** head all over this crowd. Oh, lordy lord, do what he say! Do what he say!" If anyone thinks this is real and racist, they're an effing idiot just like the blogger. Watch the movie.



And again, one of the main reasons Buck started the recall campaign for the racist, bigoted, misogynist Governor of Arizona Evan Mecham was because of his overt, public racism against blacks, Mexicans, immigrants, LGBTQ and women. Read about how racist Mecham was against blacks. Mecham and his son called black people the n word. The only interesting thing here is that Mecham only became Governor because there was a three way election just like with Bernie, Hillary and Donald, divide and conquer and evil racism wins.

08/26/2017 The mother does intend to sue Buck for money. “I plan to seek justice for my son in every way possible and intend for Buck to face the consequences of the California’s Drug Dealer Liability Act of 2005,” Nixon said. The CDDLA has to do with a drug dealer selling drugs to a person who then becomes addicted and needs treatment. I don't believe Buck was a drug dealer. The anony prostitute stated they went to buy drugs together from a dealer. Maybe Nixon interprets dealer as someone giving it to someone for free? Gemmel was caught with meth in 2015 and arrested. He was caught with pot in Texas in 2014. I doubt Buck was in Compton or Spring, Texas with Gemmel. It'll be interesting to see how this will shake out.

WeHo city council member and criminal attorney Duran stated any potential witnesses should get an attorney before they speak to police. For some reason Steve Cooley stated that Duran should not say anything because he's giving legal advice about immunity. I believe Duran stated that so any potential witness would not be charged with prostitution and use of illegal drugs. I don't think he was trying to frighten witnesses which already have a lawyer. Duran did state that he was Buck's lawyer for a while. For that reason he should probably recuse himself from any city council vote related to this incident.

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-gemmel-moore-case-immunity-20170824-story.html

I still don't think there is any evidence which can prove Buck injected Moore with a drug that killed him. The journal is inadmissible as the journal was not under custody. It could have been altered. It's also irrelevant as the journal relates to Moore's perception of events from 2016. The journal is not about the incident that night.

People need to think about what "if" Buck did not kill Moore. That means all these false statements calling him a "murderer" ... are defamation. That means the sharing of private photos and videos is infringement on Buck's privacy. Moore's mother said people shouldn't attack her son because he was a drug addict and a prostitute. Then why is Moore's mother viciously attacking Buck when we don't even have all the facts.

ORIGINAL: Ed Buck, Edward Buchmelter was born August 24, 1954 into a middle class family in Ohio. His father was Edward Thomas Buchmelter born 1918, died 1993 in Scottsdale, Arizona. His mother is Margaret Julia Tomko Buchmelter living in Phoenix, Arizona. His siblings are Kathleen "Kay," Gorgonia "Georgie," and Lawrence. They all grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. Ed Buck's paternal grandparents are John Adolphus Buchmelter and Anna Margaret Rasko from Slovakia. His maternal grandparents were Mike and Frances Tomko both from Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Austria. Based on the dates the grandparents arrived it sounds like they were fleeing the pogroms.

Buck donates heavily to animal and Democratic causes. He was a main supporter for Southern California Golden Retriever rescue. He ran for West Hollywood City Council in 2007. Here is his position paper.

Locals probably remember when Buck heckled Meg Whitman at a WeHo political event then Chris Christie chewed him out. Buck is probably most well known for a recall motion he started when he lived in Phoenix, Arizona to oust Evan Mecham the homophobic, racist, misogynist governor. Mecham called black people "piccaninnie." Mecham approved of the strip search of a 2 year old black child saying black people are from the "lower society." Mecham stated he would rescind MLK day in Arizona. Mecham stated blacks are only "good for picking cotton." People viciously attacked Buck for standing up for gays, people of color, women and animals. Buck supported MLK day. Some people I assume white said they didn't want MLK day "because MLK did nothing for Arizona." Mecham got rid of MLK day once elected. Four years later MLK day in Arizona was re-established. I see why Buck left Arizona and came to WeHo.

I personally remember Buck at the WeHo anti-fur rally and city council votes. He was also behind Social Compassion in Legislation. I remember him initially opposing our cat declaw ban in WeHo. He just didn't fully understand it at the time and later supported us.

May 2017 Ed Buck was named "50 states, 50 heroes." "In 1987, Ed Buck formed Mecham Recall Committee, to force Arizona Governor Evan Mecham from office. A year later, the homophobic governor became the first in Arizona to be impeached. Buck also organized the first HIV education program in Arizona. Since retiring to West Hollywood in 1991, Buck has become a volunteer with animal rescue. “Year after year, Ed has shown us how his commitment to compassion makes the difference. Best of all? Ed’s smart and sassy and gets the job done.” — John D’Amico, West Hollywood Councilmember (WeHo.org) "

July 27, 2017 Gemmel Artae Moore died in Ed Buck's apartment in the 1200 block of Laurel. According to the coroner report #2017-05583 Gemmel Moore's death was an "accident" caused by "methamphetamine use". Case is closed. Body was released. "The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has stated that when Moore’s body was found there were no drugs or drug paraphernalia at Buck’s residence. The Democratic party donor is not under investigation at this time. " See below coroner report which is linked above.

At the insistence of Moore's mother LaTisha Nixon around August 14, 2017 the Los Angeles County Sheriff began to look into what caused Gemmel Moore to die at the home of Ed Buck on July 27, 2017. "In an abundance of caution, Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau has assigned several investigators to review the circumstances of the death to determine if any criminal culpability exists," according to a sheriff's statement." This is three weeks after Gemmel Moore died and his body was released to family. The scene of Moore's death was not secured by sheriff after Moore died. No evidence was secured or taken. Sheriff stated there were no drugs or drug paraphernalia at the home at that time. Even if Buck had injected Moore which caused him to die there is no evidence with which to charge him. The DA would refuse the case as it would only be based on very circumstantial evidence consisting of a personal journal about personal feelings, thoughts about past events and the memories of drug addicted male prostitutes. The anonymous male prostitute "Blake" said his mind was not clear because of the drugs. He said he had blackouts. Moore also said his mind was not clear. I don't see Buck being charged.

Ed Buck's attorney released this statement. "Ed had nothing to do with his [Moore's] death. I think the investigation is the responsible thing to do," Amster adds, "but I think nothing will come of it. Ed is a caring soul who allows individuals to have access to his home who are homeless or who have other social or economic issues, to give them a place to wash up in a safe environment. Unfortunately many of these individuals come in with their lifestyles." Asked if Buck did drugs with the victim, the attorney said, "I don't think his personal lifestyle is the issue. I'm not going to accept an invitation to go into the private aspects of his life. This was a tragedy and that's all it was."

Don't get me wrong, if Buck injected Moore with drugs against his wishes which caused him to die, he should be charged with manslaughter. Because there is no physical evidence from the body or the location of death I don't believe Buck will be charged due to lack of evidence.

Whoever made this page is not helping "Blake" or Moore's case. The info they posted leads you directly to "Blake." The arrest for drugs, school... The blog states “He has friends come over and shoot him up in his neck.” So Buck is not the one injecting people? "The second time he says Buck injected him with crystal meth he said Buck offered him some money to do it and Blake’s admits he agreed to it." So the guy agreed to get an injection. “My arm was red.  When I woke up I thought he was doing that too me.  But the other dude was over there high too so I didn’t know what was going on." So they didn't know what was happening? Blake keeps saying he was poor and homeless but he has an Apple watch. The story is all over the place.

One thing I noticed in the articles which state Buck should be arrested immediately is they bring up the fact that he's wealthy. They also stated he owns the building where he lives. He does not own the building where he lives. He's a rent control tenant. He does donate a lot of money to candidates and other causes. They talk a lot about money. Sounds like the family wants to sue Buck in civil court to get some money. I personally believe if Moore had died in a motel with a poor person there wouldn't be so much talk or demands of arrest and charges. Mother and someone else set up a gofundme within hours after the death of her son. It's not for Gemmel's burial expenses but money for the mother. Mother is now saying her life is now a Lifetime Movie and people will want to make a movie about her like she's a hero or something. She knew her son was a drug addict and sex worker before he died. Someone should have sent him to rehab and job training. Mother shows off the gifts people sent to her as condolence. Oddly in her entire Facebook profile she only had one photo of Gemelle before he died.

LaTisha Nixon, her family, friends have been viciously attacking and even defaming Ed Buck. They call him a "sick, demented creep" because he likes to look at men in underwear. Most guys love looking at women in underwear. Are they also "creeps?" I like looking at boyfriends in their underwear. Am I a "creep?" I think they're calling him a "creep" because he is gay. And if Buck is a "creep" that means Gemmel is also a "creep." He admitted he enjoyed it in his journal.

This is rich. LaTisha Nixon's mother Sandra Bufford calls white people racist against blacks. Then she posts some nasty racist photo against Dominicans. Racism is racism and it's always wrong, doesn't matter the color, religion, sexual orientation, nationality... Here is Gemmel Moore's Facebook page.  Here is Latisha Nixon's page.

I see people in animal rights, Democratic party and others not only turning their back on Ed Buck, removing him from boards, distancing themselves but they're viciously attacking him. The investigation is not yet over. Innocent until proven guilty. We don't yet have all the facts.

I just read that Mike Bonin stated about Buck "I do not know him well." They were always very friendly every time I saw them together at events like they were old friends.

Who is Maurice Woodside, Maurice Alonzo Woodside, Michael the black Man? Birth, family, lawsuits, history...crazy

Maurice Woodside, Maurice Alonzo Woodside, Michael the black man, michael symonette, mikael israel, donald trump, criminal, rally, Arizona, who is, april 24, 1959, miami, florida, crazy, dui, miami florida

*This is a breaking story. Check back for updates. Information will be posted as it is confirmed.

Maurice Woodside, Maurice Alonzo Woodside also knows as Michael the black man, Maurice Symonette, Mikael Israel, Michael Symonette, Michael Warns, John Frederick Nunnally was born April 24, 1959 in Florida. He also uses birth date July 16, 1959. He has a son named Jeremiah Parham born 1988 who also has a criminal record. His brother is Ricardo Woodside born July 10, 1961.

Maurice Woodside grew up in Carol City, Florida. He attended Miami Carol City Senior High School
in Opa-locka, Florida and graduated in 1977. He was voted "most dramatic" in high school.

SNL just did a spoof of Trump and Maurice. Too funny!



Maurice claims his real father was Augustus Laurence Symonette born Aug. 16, 1916 in Tampa, Hillsborough County, Florida, USA, Death: May 5, 1997 in Tampa, Hillsborough County, Florida, USA. I do see them involved in corporations together. Maybe this is where Maurice got the nice house and cars when this person died as I don't see him really having a job. I don't believe this is his father. He also said he is related to Sir Roland Theodore Symonett. I did the trees and see no real connection except Symonett did come to Miami, Florida to sell booze during the prohibition. That's how he made all of his money. I'm starting to think he changed his last name to Symonette to maybe get the properties which were owned by Augustus Symonette. Maurice did get Augustus' boat.

His mother was Johnnie Simmons, born January 14, 1940, died March 28, 1985 in Liberty, Florida. As I look at his family tree he's not full black. Ancestors from Bahamas, possibly Cuba, Florida.

Maurice just filed for bankruptcy July 2017. The Judge denied it. Maurice has filed for bankruptcy MANY times each time being denied.

In 2010 Maurice Woodside and his son Jeremiah Parham shot at kids who had trespassed and boarded his 64 foot yacht located behind Woodside's home. Jeremiah was arrested.

"In the mid-Eighties, he was a budding career criminal with convictions for petty theft and trespassing when he was recruited by Hulon Mitchell Jr., alias Yahweh ben Yahweh, a black supremacist preacher's son turned cult leader. In 1992, Mitchell, Symonette, and 14 others were charged with conspiracy for their roles in several murders. Symonette was tried for his participation in the grisly decapitation of one Yahweh dissenter, Aston Green, and the attempted killing of another, Eric Burke."

While four were convicted of the gruesome murders Maurice was acquitted.

In 2014 Maurice campaigned for Governor Rick Scott. Maurice stood directly behind him at rallies and posed for photos. Rick Scott did not know who he was.

Maurice Symonette (age 58) is listed at 10290 Sw 58th St Miami, FL and has no political party affiliation. He is a black, non hispanic male registered to vote in Dade County, Florida.

Below are his federal lawsuits. He filed for bankruptcy but it was dismissed. He appealed and lost. He was sued by a boat tow company. The company refloated his sunken 64' foot boat. Maurice Woodside did not pay so the company filed to take his boat. Woodside lost.

Here's a pic of the boat. I think he got the boat and homes from Augustus Symonnet. Augustus was the old owner of the boat. Augustus owned a lot of property.Maurice here claimed in July 2017 that he had no job. His live in girlfriend was giving him $2,000/month.
