    Ha! That was my first thought too!

    I guess this litigiousness stuff doesn't show up on a background check, but wouldn't a simple google search have found it?

    Sucks to be them for sure. What a nightmare!

    This was my first thought. The person who allegedly squatted in someone elsee's property recently, established residence and the recorded a forged deed conveying the property to the squatter. Now the rightful owner has to go to court to get the jerk out.

    Who could possibly be "missing" her?

    Unbelievable. Before seeing the news story (or reading anything on her), I thought she was a young 20-ish girl...and then I saw her...yikes! Maybe she presented a more positive appearance early on in the interview process, I don't know. Or maybe they thought with an older lady like this, they wouldn't have any issues that seem to plague younger babysitters (like Dad running off with them, etc.).

    Well, I hate to say she made her own bed, but she did leave a trail of bad karma...

    Just last week there was someone here at websleuths who created a thread about a girl visiting from russia. the Russian girl originally was expected to stay only a few days but now the websleuther thinks it's going to be 3 months. Some folks here were warning her about legal rights the russian girl can have and to beware.

    I am on my phone cannot find the thread. Can anybody post the link here that is familiar with the thread i'm talking about

    ETA found it! Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community I just don't want a fellow wser having a squatter !
    TIA

    I guess it shouldn't be surprising that her own father left her out of his will. It takes a lot for the courts to admonish someone for being vexatious. I hope she didn't commit suicide.

    Court documents show that when Stretton's father, John Richardson, died in 2000, his will included Stretton's two sisters, Donna Tobey and Sharon Freeburn. Richardson "specifically and expressly omitted Stretton," according to court documents.

    Wow...

    This woman makes me uneasy. I can honestly say this is one case where I would break the civil? law if I was that couple and Stretton tried to come back in my home. I simply wouldn't let it happen.

    I just hope she doesn't have the money to launch another legal case, but I'm still worried her attentions will only be directed somewhere else. I think she may need psychiatric treatment, myself.

    I don't really understand the trust in Craigslist - I wouldn't hire a sitter for my dog from there. But I accept it's popular.

    This is so wrong!! She is vile and someone needs to put an end to it. If the laws cannot stop her...the laws need to be changed. In the meantime, people on the outside of that home need to make her life a living hell (legally). If there is a way to prevent her from receiving services in the area...do it. If there is a way to cause her inconveniences...do it. There should be a group of lawyers working to find ways to legally take the woman apart and stop the insanity for this poor family (and other families).

    This poor family. My aunt was a victim of a professional "squatter" and it ended up costing her thousands of dollars (that she didn't have) to get rid of her. Truth be told, my aunt who was the kindest and most giving person, changed after all of that, like she was left with a sort of PTSD.

    People like this are truly parasites and despicable human beings.

    I hope the family prevails and gets this leech out of their beautiful home. They seem like nice people, it's a shame this had to happen to them.

    Btw, I think their getting the media involved was brilliant. It will stop her from being able to do this to other people now that she's only a google search away from the truth!
