Seeking Answers in Elaine Park’s Inquiry PART 2 – Susan Park Speaks Out Providing Polygraph Proof of Non-Involvement
In an effort to unravel the web of intrigue woven into the Elaine Park affair by the podcast Live and die in Los Angeles, The local Malibu has acquired and is publishing critical information, in particular a polygraph taken by Susan Park as recently as last summer, in order to clear her name of any involvement in her daughter’s disappearance.
Susan, who is portrayed very negatively in the Live and die in Los Angeles podcast hosted by Neil Strauss, has cooperated with law enforcement, private investigators and those involved in the case since his daughter’s disappearance in 2017.
Dr Ronda Hampton, also the recipient of Strauss’s derogatory remarks, spoke out against her attempt to discredit her, as well as her years of exemplary work with families of missing persons and law enforcement agencies, recently contacted Susan Park for clarification and to help the family find the answers they need to bring to justice the person (s) responsible for Elaine’s disappearance.
Recently, Dr Hampton passed on information to The local Malibu regarding the events that led Elaine’s mother to submit to the polygraph:
After attempts were made with Mr. Neil Strauss to remove any reference to me in his Live and die in Los Angeles podcast, it became clear through his statements that he was seeking to prove that Susan Park was manipulative and that she was involved in her daughter’s disappearance. I explained to her that there was nothing I had to say that had any probative value to prove Susan Park’s guilt and that I was not agreeing to participate in any part of her podcast. I stated that investigating Susan Park was something the detectives involved should investigate. I further told her that her allusion to me as a lie was misleading in the investigation of what happened to Elaine Park and was for entertainment purposes, which in turn led to public harassment and threats. . Shortly after my communication with Mr. Strauss, I was contacted by his lawyer to stop all further contact.
I also contacted Rosemarie Wheeler who has been very actively involved in Elaine Park’s research efforts and who is in regular contact with Neil Strauss. In my attempt to figure out why she hadn’t alerted me that my phone calls were being recorded without my knowledge and my conversations were being used in a podcast, she informed me that I was being manipulated by Susan Park and she said said Susan Park was responsible for her daughter’s disappearance. I further asked her how this relates to my being included in the podcast and that she is fully aware that much of the information included in the podcast has been taken out of context and details incomplete at best. Ms Wheeler quickly blocked me from her social networks and removed me from the opportunity to comment on the Help find Elaine Park the Facebook page.
I haven’t had any meaningful contact with Susan Park for years; however, in my continuing quest to gain an understanding of the material featured in the To Live and Die podcast, I reached out to Ms. Park for clarification of the information that was reported in the podcast. Through my communications with Ms. Park, I learned that, at the request of someone familiar with the case, she had met a therapist who suggested that she take a lie detector test regarding the circumstances of her disappearance. Elaine Park. She said she had agreed to take the test; she became suspicious when the therapist suggested that she take the test immediately in the same building. She came to believe that the circumstances of having a polygraph so readily available were as established and she suspected that Neil Strauss had been involved in arranging the test. She could not prove her suspicions; however, after providing me with the name of the therapist as well as the polygraph, it became apparent that Neil Strauss, Marnie Breecker (therapist) and Ryan Angulo (polygraph) had previously worked
I’m not sure why all the deception in this case, but I hope Elaine Park’s story continues to be a full facts story of her disappearance so that her case can be resolved and justice can be done. .
Therapist Susan Park was drawn to someone close to the case is Marnie Breecker, who, unbeknownst to Park, is a close associate of Strauss and has appeared on her podcasts several times.
According to Park, at no point during the session did Breecker reveal that she was a Strauss business associate. Additionally, Breecker, whose office is in Los Angeles, had access to Certified Polygraph Examiner / Forensic Psychophysiologist Anselmo “Ryan” Angulo of DF Polygraph whose office is located in San Dimas – was conveniently in the Breecker building and available that day – administer the polygraph to Park.
It was confirmed by Park that members close and in regular contact with the Live and die in Los Angeles podcast was aware of the results of Park’s polygraph taken last summer, proving no deception on Park’s part in his daughter’s disappearance. Lack of transparency from podcast associates who continue to cast a shadow over Park despite his willingness to pass the polygraph without prior preparation, further confirms the deceptive tactics used by the investigation team Live and die in Los Angeles Podcast.
Due to the extremely dangerous circumstances, the Live and die in Los Angeles podcast created for Park and his partner Jeff Hyan, they released the following polygraph documents and statements exclusively to The local Malibu to provide transparency and clarity to listeners and those who wish to help the family find answers in this case.
The local Malibu will continue the series of investigations into the Elaine Park case in hopes of gaining a better understanding of the events surrounding her disappearance.
The efforts made by The local Malibu communicating with Neil Strauss and Jayden Brandt went unanswered at press time.
Any information regarding Elaine Park’s disappearance should be directed to the Glendale Police Department 818.548.4911
