Christine Sheddy Case:Murder in Maryland Chapter 4

 “I suppose one night hundreds of thousands of years ago in a cave by a night fire when one of those shaggy men wakened to gaze over the banked coals at his woman, his children, and thought of their being cold, dead, gone forever. Then he must have wept. And he put out his hand in the night to the woman who must die some day and to the children who must follow her. And for a little bit next morning, he treated them somewhat better, for he saw that they, like himself, had the seed of night in them.” – Something Wicked this Way Comes, Ray Bradbury

Simmering Perdition  

How do they find each other? Is there some invisible beacon for theLevicreepy black hearted to lessen the degrees of separation between them and like minded cellar dwellers? I have come to the conclusion that there are two types of people in this fray.

There are the “most of the people in my family were criminals and we did not mind seeing each other through partitions,” types- and their victims.

Not only did Christine Sheddy invite the vampire into her home with Levi, but she went directly to the lair in Pocomoke City in November 2007. 

Cedar_Hall_Wharf_landingPocomoke City has a population of under 5000. How this unlucky soul came into contact with what appears to be it’s under-est of bellies starts with Levi’s cousin Steve Magg. The impetice for the meeting, the guy who actually drove Levi, Christine and the boys for the only other trip to the farmhouse in October, the guy who was at the farmhouse constantly from November 9 through the 13th HAS NEVER BEEN QUESTIONED BY POLICE IN THIS CASE.

Advance apologies et al, but in the course of this investigation, I can conclude Levi Hall and Mother Hall, had no advance notice of Christine’s jaunt to Pocomoke. In fact, Christine was running from Levi, dated 11/3/2007 1:13PM:

god damm it why the f*** did she do this ??????????????
are you ok ive been trying to call are you ok well steve said something about punkin-chunkin i need to see yo so i guess ill try and go mabee ill run into you f*** baby i hope your ok where ar you at ?

The question becomes, what makes a woman that has literally met these people on one occasion, want to pack up her boys and scoot? She had been there for 4 days previously.  Apparently the lack of allegiance not withstanding to Levi as he introduced them, but WTH?

Christine caught Levi in another tryst, smoking more crack from dealer Todd, and argued with her Mother about it. She sent a very long and painful email to friends that she had had it with her children doing without, was tired of the abusive co dependent existence robbing her of unaffected thought, and refused to fail in her life.  

QAgainst the protests of her BFF “Q”, Christine talks him into taking her and the boys to meet Tia and Jr in the parking lot of the WalMart where they will pick them up for the rest of the trip to the farmhouse. 

Q never saw the Farmhouse until blinkoncrime aired the first footage.

If he had, he never would have let her and the boys out of the van he told me in a recent interview. I said, “I know that Q, I was there, I know.”  


GUMBO– Genuinely Unsavory Miscreants Bring Obfuscation

Strong-arming the projectile in the path of this missile will not help.


The Quantum Crash that is the evening of November 12, 2007, ending Christine Sheddys’ life, was on course years prior.

Fabienne Hubertina “Fab” Stassen, daughter of Catharina and Frans, is the anachronism of this tale. 

Fabienne Josephine Stassen comes from a prestigious family originating from the Netherlands.   Her parents and sister are esteemed medical professionals. Fabienne was a nurse, fresh from school, at 32.

On 7/13/2005 Clarence “JR Jackson assaulted Ms. Stassen, among other menaces, and in August, the PCSO issued warrants and Peace orders. That included Fabienne and a neighbor of JR’s. Sharon Jean Nelson.

Ms. Stassen’s fears of Clarence “Jr” Jackson were short lived. Unfortunately, she requested a rescind hearing for the peace order against him in September and refused to assist in his prosecution so the charges were dropped.  2 months later Fabienne files for bankruptcy, before it is discharged, on February 9, 2006 dies unexpectedly.


Fabienne Josephine Hubertina Stassen

SALISBURY — Fabienne Josephine Hubertina “Fab” Stassen, 33, died unexpectedly in her sleep Thursday, Feb. 9, 2006.

Fabienne was a registered nurse. She was born July 5, 1972, in Belleville, N.J. She was a graduate of Gill St. Bernard’s School in Gladstone, N.J., and Raritan Valley College’s School of Nursing in Raritan, N.J., where she was inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. Until she moved to Salisbury, where she worked in several medical care facilities, she was a member of the Clinton, N.J., and Plainfield, N.J., first aid and rescue squads. Among her many awards was a certificate of appreciation for participation in the rescue efforts of 9-11 at the World Trade Center in New York City.

As a nurse, in addition to medical care, she brought cheer and a breath of fresh air to her patients. Her big heart showed not only in her caring for people but also in her love of animals.

She is survived by her parents, Toos and Frans; two sisters and their families, Veronique, Tom, John and James and Nicole, Aaron, and their little one; two grandmothers; six great-aunts; four aunts; seven uncles; and 24 cousins.

Fabienne’s remains were cremated in a private ceremony Feb. 11.

Memorial contributions may be made to a charity that cares for people or animals in need.

Arrangements are by Holloway Funeral Home in Salisbury. Visit to send condolences to the family.

In August 2007, just after meeting Tia Johnson and this backwoodsMustng impression of Sid and Nancy is if full bloom, JR gets a ticket for speeding in Somerset County for driving 101 mph in a 55.

He was driving Fab’s Mustang. Jr. Jackson was driving the graduation gift of the woman he beat, turned onto drugs, and died while they were dating.

Although the record of the ticket he was given shows failure to appear warrants and suspension of his driver license; that was all miraculously fixed with a plea of guilty on 2/09/09; the 3 year anniversary of her death.

In front of witnesses speaking to on the condition of anonymity, JR got a call in early September ‘07 from someone who obviously found out through the summons that JR was in possession of Fabienne’s car and gave him instructions on returning it.

The location of the Mustang with white racing stripes has not been disclosed.

    I still feel like Justin Hadel is the person I would be looking at. I have noticed that there is also a Kevin Hadel. Does he come into this story at some point?

    I believe there are 4 Hadel boys:
    Kevin, Justin, Brian and Daniel
    By all accounts, Kevin is a decent guy. Justin, not so much.

  2. Charity says:

    249… See that is my thing, Boo.

    If Levi and his mom knew right away, plus Justin’s mom… it means that this group is fairly talkative.

    Which means that many people have to know something.

    The mom’s will probably protect, but eventually it is the girl friends and ex-girlfriends who are likely to crack.

  3. Charity says:

    Re 241: Wow, I didn’t know that about the National Media. That means that if the one that you chose to deal with doesn’t run the story, you can’t go to others? That really sucks.

    ALmost always, that is the case, the contracts are pretty standard.

    Blink, it was WGMD 92.7 in the Jan. 16, 2008 edition. (I wish that I knew how to “send it” lol…I am just not that computer savvy.)

    The way I look at it, it’s never to late. Someone needs to have a long talk with WCBI…some of the people in this town baffle me…big time.
    Especially the mayor and others “in power.” What are they trying to hide? So much more could have been done from the very beginning. Very sad, very strange.

    I still have great hope that you and your team will bring Christine home. It’s obvious that “your heart” is in this case. I’m so proud of you and your team! I know that you all will bring Christine home…it’s just a matter of time.

    CountryGal, said:
    Ok, my name is Lisa and it is to the point now that I really dont care if JR or anyone else knows that I know about this or I’m talking about this or him or anyone else for that matter, and if he wants to come over here with his little cronies he will and they will have something waiting for them and I can say that none of them will walk away. I did tell my son and his bestfriend about JR and his connection with Christine and the case. You see my sons bestfriends mother is dating JR or whatever they want to call it. Of course there was a blow up between JR and I because something was said threats were made…I really dont care about his threats. While in the grocery store the other day I saw Mr Jackson and he saw me and proceeded to bump into me on purpose we had a few choice words for eachother and that was that. While my son and his friend were out on saturday night they got a call from his mother…(the friends mother) and she told them that JR was leaving on Sunday to go back to Maryland because things had gotten to out of hand down here with the rumors. Now I dont know if he was just telling her that to break it off with her or what thats just what I was told by her son. I do know that she herself is moving to another town and will be having no contact with Mr Jackson which is a good thing. And my husband and I have prepared ourselves and our home for Mr Jackson and the trash he hangs with. Just let me say they may get in but they wont be walking out. I have already spoken with the local authorities and they are aware of Mr Jackson and his criminal background, along with the others he hangs with, and they have also been made aware of the threats. I have been made aware of my legal rights as a citizen. Oh by the way JR doesnt have a jeep anymore, he drives a cadiallac. Just thought you might want to know. 8/24/09

    Mayor McDermotts words to me were “you all are totally off base with this Christine Sheddy case on the Tattler”.

    He said that he had sources that said that she had run away, and abandoned her children.

    I told him that I didn’t believe it for a minute. That as a mother, there was no way I could accept that.

    He again told me that we were off base, and if she were found tomorrow she would be arrested for child abandonment.

    I said “Mike if it was your daughter you would be screaming it from the rooftops and turn the world inside out until you found her”.

    He said, “Stephanie, these are people that you would never associate with.” “She was a sponge on society. No one knew she was missing because she wasn’t expected to be anywhere because she didn’t have a job”.

    I told him I didn’t care what kind of person she was, that whatever she did, did not require a death sentence. He again told me that we were off base in saying these things on the Tattler, and we should just not write about it anymore.

    I told him that I would never stop writing about it until the case was solved. I also told him that I hoped that if my then unemployed daughter came up missing that he wouldn’t take the same position with her.

  7. Brenda in Virginia says:

    Blink…you mean even on a show like “America’s Most Wanted” if they choose not to run a story on a missing mom the family (not to mention the victim) is screwed due to a constraint in a contract? What a load!!!

    No. But they dont investigate the case either, they just report the facts. If there is a stall in the case, while that is helpful, you need to mobilize resources, there is not an investigative report program I am aware of that does not get the “exclusive” agreement upfront.. The first question is.. who else covered this??

  8. boo says:

  16. seekingjustice says:

    Dear Christinesmom – Could you please come to the Scared Monkey’s thread and clear up some confusion? I am sure Blink is very busy with Chapter 5 and we are all anxiously waiting for it too.

    Thank you and (((hugs))).

    TY, Blink is busy with alot more than Chapter 5, we are making progress.

    Christinesmom; You are certainly a rare breed, and I mean that in the most respectful and good way.

    That’s a good one, I assume you mean mcdermott is not house broken LOL. Thanks for the laugh today. You’re the best.

  18. Charisse says:

    Oh, Christine’s mom, my heart utterly breaks that ANYONE would say those things about your precious daughter, especially someone who preaches at his church.

    My first thought is that he must not have a relationship with Christ to take that stance about anyone. I am praying for his soul and about the hardness of his heart.

    I wish there is more I could do to help you find Christine. Right now, mostly, I am praying a lot and emailing Blink’s link about the case to my friends.

    I believe that God can open the mouths of people who are afraid to speak and that the day is coming when He will expose the truth. And I will be praising Him big time when that day does come!

  19. Charisse says:

    Blink, I hope you don’t mind, mostly, when I comment and speculate and brainstorm, it may not be that I have any clue at all, it is mostly that I am just coming here to care.

    Maybe that is true for many of us who don’t come from the area.

  20. PrivateEYE says:

    Ok correct me if im wrong but do you say McDirtMott Preaches At His Church????

    What a good cover up…Frank White also preaches at his own church….

    LMAO these guys are ridiculous!!!

    Sorry for getting off topic!!!!

    Praying for the recovery of christine!!

    Again my offer on reward stands.

  21. Charisse says:

    PrivateEYE, I was reading your offer, when I went back to the Tia and Clarence introduction page to look at Domo’s newest response.

    Nice of you.

    If that is regarding the reward, I emailed privateeye, and have not received a response.

  24. wymzie says:

    McDermott used to have his own church where he was the pastor!

    He still takes on the Pastoral tone when speaking with him, and tries to make you feel ashamed for speaking of unseemly things, yet as a cop his customers come in all types of packages.

    It must be a whacky mind game that goes on in his head,… “I’m a cop, I’m a Mayor, I’m a pastor”

    Anyway, it looks like the clan over on 113 are going camping but got bogged down in the rain, as the yard is filled with tents. Some standing some half blown down, and some sort of car repairs are getting done too.

  25. sandyeggo says:

    A new case in our area is 2 missing girls, aged 15 and 16. ( snuck out Friday night and haven’t been seen since. The police are already calling them runaways even though their parents and friends disagree and they didnt take much if anything with them…grrr, reminded me of the way Christine’s case was handled from the beginning. Glad you are on it Blink. I’ve been following closely, but dont have much to add yet. Sending good thoughts to you and your team as well as the Sheddy/Doddenhoff Family.

  26. Chris Smith says:

    In case anyone did not happen see this post from earlier today it was located under another comment section. I thought it was worth a read.

    Posted by Domo at 8:58Am this morning-
    domo is not jrs little bitch and i did not do anything to her.and i was not there the day she went missing there is nothing for me to say and you would think with all of you looking into stuff of my and his past you would have turn up that me and his is not close to each other and in my opion he is danger4ous and needs to be taking off the street.and finally for the record so if i new something i would say it just to get him off the streets.we may be brothers but i have a heart i may be a ashole and i am the first to say i am,but i am not some who hurts people.and i dont even think he should have been able to leave the state.i love my brother just cause he is just that my brother i dont like the way he acts,treat,or talk to people,always wants respect but gods knows he dont give it he care for know one but himself and thats in plain sight cause if he did he would not be running to a different state while everyone is dealing with his shit i have done my shit and i am not proud of the shit i did in my past but that is what it is the past,jr just cant get out of the past.i will never be like him never want to.the times i met christine she was really nice at my brother inlaws birthday party she was the only one that was helping with everything while everyone else did whatever at the end she helped me and my mother inlaw clean up she was cool people to cool to be with my brother in my thought.if i new anything i would say something if i was able to help i would with out a second thought.if jr did it and i know he reads all of these sites on her so he is going to see this so please if he did do it get him before he hurts someone else,either way after he see this i will be for sure less of a brother then we was before which was not much.i stoped hanging with him alot when i let him in my house and he did something to me that was fucked up and when he started having trouble with his neighbors cause they helped him out with furniture and fed his snke and invited them to parties and he had to do something fucked up like always he just does not care and thats to dangerous for him and everyone else.i have a feeling after he see this i will be seeing in so if he did do it please .find out

  28. PrivateEYE says:

    Blink i have never recieved email please resend if you can.

  29. Felicity says:

    re: 254 Lisa, please, please, be careful. You are not dealing with rational people. Hope that you will take a tazer with u at all times, and of course,keep your guns “loaded” at home. These bullies are the kind of people that wouldn’t hesitate burning your house down if they could get away with it. Try not to go out alone if possible, and always have your cell phone charged. I hope you have a permit to carry a gun…I think you know what to do if these bullies come after you. They’ve done enough damage, and caused enough heartbreak for several lifetimes. I pray that all of them end up in prison. They are COWARDS as well as BULLIES. Please, stay safe.

  30. seekingjustice says:

    Hey Domo, Now how many times has it been that you met Christine….I think you might have your “stories” mixed up.

  31. suz says:

    Blink, have you shared with us what Christine’s kids say about what happened at the farm? I think I’ve read through all the posts but I didn’t see it and wonder if I missed it. Thanks, and thanks for working on this case. My heart goes out to her loved ones.

    I have not suz, although it is a good question, I am intentionally not speaking at all about any juveniles in this case publicly.

  32. wymzie says:

    Just wanted everyone to know that the GLITCH on the Time Stamps on the Tattler has been fixed, for Lynne and Blink.

  33. Charity says:

    I was reading on Scared Monkeys that when Jr called Q to say that Christine was missing, he told Q that he had a fight with Christine.

    Wondering if he mentioned to Q what the fight was about or if he said that they fought the night of the 12th or the morning of the 13th?

    Also wondering if from the video from the neighbors if you know when the various cast of characters left the farm.

    Wondering how many of them stayed over night.

    Am guessing someone like cousin Steve would have if it was a long ride home.

  34. boo says:

    Whoa, Domo keeps pointing right at JR. Is someone breathing down Domo’s neck? That post reads like a confession, considering the party that is being discussed here.

  35. Charity says:

    Or does that come in Chapter 5 or 6?

    I am VERY curious about Chapter 5 and 6, particularly hearing that things are going well and that you are making progress!

    Christine’s mom, lots of us are praying and I do believe God is going to answer soon.

  36. suz says:

    ok, thanks, Blink.

  37. boo says:

    Domo didn’t even mention “Tom, dick or Harry” tonight, just JR.

  38. Charity says:

    Domo, if JR had a fight with Christine and killed her, you gotta come clean about what happened and where he put the body.

    Blink has videos of who was at the farm.

    Once the body is found, and even if it isn’t found, Law Enforcement is going to be looking at each of the people who were there very carefully. The small group of you will be the only suspects, and they will be determining whether it was one of you or a few of you or all of you who did it.

    This case isn’t going to go away, it is going to get bigger, particularly if the National Media gets ahold of it, and it is on the cusp of that happening.

    When that happens, your name will become known, not just in your small community, but country-wide. If you are sweating a little now, it is going to be a lot hotter at that moment.

  39. jonathan says:

    fabienne stassen was my god mother. the closest thing i’ve ever had to a real mother and i dont appreciate this at all.. she would’ve been offended to have her personal life probed and exploited on the internet. whether fact or fiction, exaggerrated or not. she had a previous condition that she didnt tell anyone about & her mustang was white. with no racing stripes.. this blows my mind.

    I am very sorry for your loss.

    The racing stripes were added in MD.
