Josh Whittier was murdered in Navarre in 2007. Because one of his assailants was the brother of a Santa Rosa Sheriff, no arrests were made and the probable homicide by all law enforcement trained professionals was ruled an accidental drowning. Josh's clothes and phone were not wet despite the fact he was found on the beach. Sand was embedded in his eyes and drag marks from further toward the shore were present, but never looked at. The kids that were with him know he was murdered. No one was arrested.

|Michelle & Gavin Clarke|
When she called Stephen Cappas about finding her son and what she found out about Smith and Gavin's father, Cappas insisted he was investigating all of this. Months later, it came to light that no report was ever made of any of these events. Michelle called DCF to help find her son. DCF contacted Investigator Cappas, who reported the boy was never missing and that Michelle's claims were baseless. They refused to follow up.
To date, Gavin Clarke is not registered in any school; he is not in the DCF system and he is not in cute family portrait Mike Cancienne has with his new family.
Cancienne's mother confided in Michelle that her son was a molester as was Mike's father, Gavin's grandfather. She later passed away. Mike nor his father attended her funeral. Gavin Clarke is no where to be found.
These stories are consistent with the recent arrest of ECSO's deputies who sexually molested 3 young girls. Chief Deputy Eric Haines, as previously reported, claims there is no evidence against the deputies, despite arrest reports that show there is VIDEO of events. Currently Mark Smith is untethered, traveling to see his teenage daughter out of state without issue. He also has access to other deputies foster children.
"There are no, as in zero, videos of any deputies, including the two who were arrested with the underage girls. There are not even pictures documenting any illegal activity. No one including the girls themselves have accused any other deputies of any other illegal activity. I know you believe there is and have been told there is but it is not true. This truth will come out in trial"--Chief Deputy Eric Haines 10/4/15, 7:33amAlso according to Chief Deputy Haines, I am the one who is out of line by telling these stories. He's worried about the deputies reputation, even though there is a pattern of behavior that is clear. He has no concern for Gavin Clarke, or the 3 girls molested by Smith nor the foster children who have been allowed to be in the same domicile as Smith. And forget about his own daughter and the fact he travels while being prosecuted as a sexual offender. Even State Attorney Erin Ambrose knew Smith
AN EXAMPLE SHOULD BE MADE OF THESE PEOPLE. THEY VICTIMIZE CHILDREN.
THESE STORIES DESERVE A VOICE. PLEASE HELP ME TELL THE PUBLIC WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON AND ACTIVELY COVERED UP. EVERY VICTIM'S STORY MATTERS.
