DECLARATION OF BRITTANY RETZLAFF
IN SUPPORT OF
THOMAS RETZLAFF’S MOTION TO STRIKE
I, BRITTANY RETZLAFF, declare the following under penalty of perjury:
1. I am the daughter of Defendant Thomas Retzlaff, I currently live in Peru.
2. Mr. Retzlaff is my father, he currently resides in Phoenix, Arizona.
3. I have been volunteering my time for the past year, working with James McGibney, who is the founder of Bullyville.com.
8. Within the background images, it was clear to see, and identify, the bathroom in the photos, which was his apartment bathroom.
9. Shortly thereafter I went to file a police report about this incident and also went to the FBI.
10. Once my father found out that I had clearly identified the background within the photos as his apartment, new images were uploaded where the background of the bathroom was edited out.
11. Mr. McGibney, along with Detectives working this case in San Antonio, TX and San Jose, CA, as well as the FBI, have both sets of images. My father has given multiple versions of how those naked images of myself ended up online. His first version was that my ex-husband posted them. My father’s second version was that different men uploaded them. His latest version is that James McGibney uploaded them. These images were posted by my father back in 2009. James McGibney didn’t even launch any of his “Ville” websites until 2011. My father, Thomas Retzlaff posted those images of me all over the web and wrote many of the horrific comments beneath each image. Within one email sent to my current husband, he admitted to sending links of these images to my family, friends and fellow religious members in order to “embarrass me”.
12. My father also admitted to me that he created a social media account under my name on “Facebook” without my permission. It contained obscene sexual language and racial slurs with my former employers/company name. He said he would delete it, but since my initial request, and despite my several requests to Facebook, the account keeps getting reopened without my permission, by my father.
13. I currently have a permanent restraining order in place against my father; however, he continues to violate the restraining order by sending me emails from firstname.lastname@example.org.
14. When I lived in Santa Teresa, NM, my father stationed his car outside our home and was relentlessly stalking and harassing me.
15. When I would visit my mother in Phoenix, AZ he would station his vehicle outside of the residence for extended periods of time. He would call the house phone and ring the doorbell repeatedly. I called the El Mirage Police department due to his constant presence at the house.
16. I’m currently living in Peru and am terrified about coming back to the United States. My father has stated numerous times that if I ever step foot in the United States that he would kill me.
17. I have been forwarding every email he sends to me directly to James McGibney from BullyVille and to the FBI, and in most instances, I also forward the IP headers attached to each email sent to me by my father. An IP header is a prefix to an IP Packet which contains information about the IP version, source IP, destination IP, etc.
18. I’ve forwarded approximately 75 emails that were sent to me by my father from email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org directly to James McGibney and the FBI.
19. These e-mails are attached as Exhibit 1. I have reviewed this exhibit. It contains true and correct copies of those e-mails I forwarded to Mr. McGibney and the FBI. I know that email@example.com who refers to himself as “Dean Anderson” is my father. He emailed me specifically to an email account that was never public knowledge. And the writing style and content is nearly identical to that of the emails that I’ve received from firstname.lastname@example.org, which is my father. My father has stalked me for most of my adult life and as a child I have been a victim of his physical and emotional abuse and his numerous sexual advances towards me. Even as an adult, he has made comments to me such as “you look so pretty today, if you weren’t my daughter…” Based on my past personal experiences with my father, there is no doubt in my mind, that my father, Thomas Retzlaff, is a pedophile.
20. My father not only harassed and stalked me, he would harass any employer of mine, and post horrible things about them all over the web. In addition, he would arrive at my workplace unannounced and would prevent me from leaving the parking lot by blocking my vehicle with his.
21. If necessary, I intend to testify on behalf of the Plaintiff in this case.
