Update on Potters Field Closure
Now, he hopes it’s all done by the end of the year.
What McCoy did not anticipate was that the Montana Attorney General would step in and halt the sales of the properties so the state could do its own investigations.
The AG has now released it’s hold and one of the properties has sold and the others are back on the block.
After all the debts are cleared there should be money to do an official audit and provide financial assistance to the interns whose stories have been printed here.
The last interns who were overseas are now back home and are living with members of McCoy’s Godspeak church congregation while they reorient themselves.
The question now is how to legally and fairly distribute the proceeds of the asset sales to those who both need and deserve it.
That, (as McCoy told me, and I concur) will take the wisdom of Solomon.
My suggestion is that (once the legal ramifications are understood and complied with) that a committee formed by former interns and trusted counsel oversee that distribution.
I have asked that the process be both public and transparent.
There is an urgency here…many of these former interns are hurting badly financially, spiritually, and emotionally.
On the legal front, attorneys have told me a lawsuit is coming…but it’s been coming for a long time without arriving.
The other frequently asked question is “whither the Rozell’s?”
Depends on who you ask…
McCoy says that he has asked them to stay silent as they go through a season of reflection and repentance.
Other sources say that they are doing little of either.
That will have to wait for resolution…the major task at hand is getting help for those former interns.
That is my main priority and I trust it is Rob McCoy’s as well…and then putting Whitefish, Montana in his rear view mirror…
