To Fellow Survivors of Extreme Abuse and Their Advocates
From Carol Rutz
Re Announcement of International Survey for Adult Survivors of Extreme Abuse
Thousands of persons who survived Ritual Abuse and/or Mind Control and as a result may have developed DID have been ignored too long and further injured by their inability to find quality mental health providers who will recognize and treat them. That is why I feel it so important to enlist your help in completing this survey to be conducted between January 1 and March 31st 2007.
This survey available in English and German is your opportunity to prove that Ritual Abuse, Mind Control, and Government Experimentation are not "Urban Legend," fantasy or implanted memories. Because of its international scope, I believe this to be the largest study of its kind, thereby giving credence to you and the reality of what has truly taken place.
If you have been unable to find a safe way to find and use your voice, now is your opportunity to do a completely anonymous survey that may affect a change in the way we are perceived by an uniformed public, as well as by some skeptical mental health professionals. The International Society for the Study of Dissociation addresses the issue of “ritual” [their quotes] abuse and government-sponsored experiments in its “Guidelines for Treating Dissociative Identity Disorder in Adults (2005).”
The developers of the guidelines state “There is divergence of opinion in the field concerning the origins of patients’ reports of seemingly bizarre abuse experiences such as involvement in organized occultist “ritual” abuse and covert government sponsored mind control experiments.” They specify three opinions held by therapists “(1) clinicians who believe patients’ reports of organized abuse; (2) clinicians who believe patients’ reports of other types of sadistic events are misremembered as “ritual” abuse and mind control; and (3) clinicians who believe that patients’ reports can be explained “as contagion, unconscious defensive elaborations, false memory, delusion, or deliberate confabulation.”
Only a few researchers have interviewed, surveyed, or tested ritual abuse survivors directly and published their results in the peer-reviewed literature. In our literature review, we found no studies related to adults who remember both ritual abuse and trauma-based mind control or who remember mind control alone.
The PURPOSE of the Survivor Survey is to explore commonalities shared by RA/MC survivors from around the world regarding
1. Types of abuse/violence/tortures to which you have been subjected.
2. Aftereffects of RA/MC which you have experienced.
3. Methods of healing that have been most effective for you.
Thorsten Becker, Wanda Karriker, Bettina Overkamp and I are conducting this survey privately to give RA/MC survivors an opportunity to anonymously break the silence imposed by their perpetrators. We also hope to make others more aware of the existence of RA/MC, the aftereffects of extreme child abuse, and the resiliency of the human spirit. Your voice will not be silenced or altered by anyone who has tried to discredit your experiences.
The results of the survey will be widely disseminated on the World Wide Web, in press releases and included in a book titled [i]Ritual Abuse in the Twenty-first Century Psychological, Forensic, Social and Political Considerations[/i] edited by Randy Noblitt and Pamela Perskin. A group of renowned professionals from around the world will be contributing chapters.
I, Carol Rutz, am author of [i]A Nation Betrayed The Chilling True Story of Secret Cold War Experiments Performed on Our Children and Other Innocent People, [/i]is a healed ritual abuse/mind control survivor who continues to work at endeavors which provide validation and healing for the survivor community. [font "Palatino Linotype"](See [u][url "http//www2.dmci.net/users/casey"]http//www2.dmci.net/users/casey[/url])[/u]
Thorsten Becker ([url "http//www.beckertho.de/"]www.BeckerTho.de[/url]) is a Social Worker/Supervisor from Lueneburg, Germany. In 1994, he received the “German Child Protection Award” for his team’s work with ritually abused children.
Wanda Karriker, Ph.D. is a retired psychologist from North Carolina who spent a career working with RA/MC survivors. For more information about her advocacy work for survivors see [url "http//www.morningcomequickly.com/"]www.MorningComeQuickly.com[/url].
Bettina Overkamp, Ph.D. ([url "firstname.lastname@example.org"]email@example.com[/url]) is a psychologist working in a trauma ambulance in a psychiatric clinic in Germany. She is a member of the Executive Board of the European Society for Trauma and Dissociation (ESTD) and a member of the International Society for the Study of Dissociation (ISSD).
Please join me in showing the world that we exist by
1. Completing the anonymous survey at [url "http//www.extreme-abuse-survey.net/"]www.extreme-abuse-survey.net[/url] which should take less than 30 minutes.
2. Forwarding this email announcement to other RA/MC survivors whom you know, email lists of survivors, and all professionals you know who work with RA/MC survivors. Ask them to forward to RA/MC survivors and to professionals (including therapists, physicians, clergy, deprogrammers, researchers, law enforcement, attorneys, etc. who have worked with RA/MC survivors, etc) literally sending the announcement around the world.
We can show a skeptical public that our numbers are beyond their wildest imaginations and that regardless of their belief or non-belief we need recognition and respect for having survived the most atrocious events known to humankind, hidden behind a mask of secrecy and disbelief.
Numbers do count.
Your voice does count and can make a difference.

this page contains descriptions of graphic crimes of ritual abuse
“Anne’s parents confessed their atrocities—both in writing and verbally—to clergymen, and to detectives from the Utah Attorney General’s Office. Anne’s suppressed memories, which erupted when she was in her mid-30s, were fully substantiated by her mother and stepfather.”
“After spending three years and $250,000 the Attorney General’s office has finished its probe into ritual abuse. Now the 59-page report says investigators found evidence of ritual abuse, but nothing that can be prosecuted at this time.”
“Confessed, and even paid up. The parents settled out of court to pay Jenny’s therapy bills.”
Anne’s Story of Deliverance From Satanic Ritual Abuse and her Journey to Freedom “Hell Minus One” When Anne A Johnson Davis was just three years old, her mother and stepfather began to physically, sexually and mentally abuse her—in the name of Satan. Until she ran away from home at 17, her parents and other cult members subjected her to satanic ritual abuse, a criminally inhumane and bizarre form of devil worship. In the middle of the night, Anne would be drugged and forced to endure hours of ritualistic torture as a symbolic sacrifice….The horrors Anne experienced, the astounding miracles that helped her to survive, and the heal-or-die choices she made as an adult to triumph over her tragic past, are revealed in her new book Hell Minus One: My Story of Deliverance From Satanic Ritual Abuse and My Journey to Freedom. Hell Minus One is different from other previously published memoirs by victims of satanic ritual abuse. Instead of distressing, heart-breaking accounts without collaborative or corroborative evidence, Anne’s parents confessed their atrocities—both in writing and verbally—to clergymen, and to detectives from the Utah Attorney General’s Office. Anne’s suppressed memories, which erupted when she was in her mid-30s, were fully substantiated by her mother and stepfather….The book’s foreword was written by Lt. Detective Matt Jacobson, who was the lead investigator with the Utah Attorney General’s Office on Anne’s case in 1995. In April 1995, Anne was interviewed by KTVX Channel 4 News and The Deseret News in Salt Lake City for stories regarding a then newly released three-year study by the Utah AG’s Office about ritual abuse. In those news accounts, Anne’s identity was concealed as she explained some of the horrors of her childhood. In Hell Minus One, Anne publicly blows the door open on who she is and tells her story openly for the first time. http://www.hellminusone.com/
“…I knew three years old was supposed to be the right age for sexual activity… You were drugged with cough syrup and the light was shadowy and flickering on the hooded and masked figures… He cut off your nightclothes and panties. A dog was hung by the back feet, throat cut and disemboweled and hind legs cut off. You were hung by your feet after being bound. I let you be used as a symbolic sacrifice, my tiny innocent child. I let you be painted with blood, have the dull side of a knife across your throat and feet. You may have seen me go and kneel… and take an oath that if anyone revealed anything done there or your father did not make you children behave, I would kill you children, him or myself.”
—An excerpt from one confession letter written by Anne’s mother
Foreword for Hell Minus One by Lieutenant Detective Matt Jacobson Utah Attorney General’s Office (retired)
In the autumn of 1994, I was at the Utah State Attorney General’s Office working under a legislative grant to investigate satanic ritualistic abuse. …When Mike King, my AG detective partner, and I traveled to a state in the Pacific Northwest to question Anne’s mother and stepfather about allegations of satanic ritual abuse, we found the contents of their confession letters to her to be true. They confessed to us—in person. The allegations were confirmed. http://www.hellminusone.com/Links.html http://www.johnsondaviscommunications.com/about.htm
Woman revisits the ‘Hell’ of ritual abuse By Ben Winslow Deseret News 12/10/08 She isn’t Rachel Hopkins anymore. Anne A Johnson Davis is shedding the moniker she used in a 1995 Deseret News story about her childhood as a victim of ritualistic Satanic abuse and speaking out in a memoir of her life. Davis, now a Lehi mother of three, is stepping into the spotlight again with the publication of her book “Hell Minus One.” “I have had enough healing and closure of my own, I feel I’m in a place where I really feel the call to share what I have to help others find courage,” Davis said in an interview Wednesday. Davis’ story is so bizarre, it’s hard to believe it actually happened — save for the fact that she has signed confessions from her mother and stepfather, a financial settlement and investigators from the Utah Attorney General’s Office who vouched for her. From age 3 until she ran away at 17, she said she was sexually abused, tortured, bathed in blood and forced to hurt her siblings in Satanic rituals. “They would tell me, ‘Now you’re one of us. If you tell anybody, they won’t believe you and they’ll put you in a mental hospital.’ And they threatened to torture me until I was dead,” Rachel Hopkins said in 1995. It was a study by the Utah Attorney General’s Office that downplayed ritual abuse that prompted Davis to come forward. At the time, she insisted on a pseudonym and did interviews in silhouette. “I’m glad that she’s come out of the shadows and she’s in the sunlight to tell her story so other victims will speak out and know they don’t have to be afraid anymore,” said Paul Murphy, a spokesman for the Utah Attorney General’s Office who interviewed her as a TV reporter back in 1995. He also wrote a blurb on the book’s jacket. Davis still takes issue with the attorney general’s report, which came out at a time when ritual abuse was being attacked as indicative of false memory syndrome — events and fantasies imagined by patients or planted by unscrupulous therapists….The Utah Attorney General’s Office has no plans to revisit the controversial study, but continues to investigate any reports of ritual abuse. “We take all child abuse very seriously,” Murphy said….When she ran away from home at 17, Davis said she cut ties with her family and anyone associated with them. She heard her stepfather died a few years ago but has no idea what happened to her mother. She also isn’t scared about publishing the family secrets. “Secrecy is their greatest weapon,” she said. “I don’t believe I have anything to be afraid of.” http://www.deseretnews.com/article/1,51 ... 63,00.html

April 25, 1995 (Pseudonym “Jenny”)
“Good Afternoon and thanks for joining us. I’m Randall Carlisle.”
“And I’m Kimberly Perkins. The report is final. Ritual abuse exists in Utah, but its hard to prosecute.”
Randall Carlisle: “After spending three years and $250,000 the Attorney General’s office has finished its probe into ritual abuse. Now the 59-page report says investigators found evidence of ritual abuse, but nothing that can be prosecuted at this time.”
Kimberly Perkins: “The lack of prosecution of such reports does not mean that the reports are factitious (Ritual Abuse Task Force).
Paul Murphy: “One woman who came forward to tell about ritual abuse brought something no one else has - a confession from the perpetrators. “Jenny” was only three years old when her parents started sexually abusing her.
The bruises in this picture show she was physically abused as well.”
Jenny: “They would go through these very formal satanic rituals and I would be abused and tortured and threatened with my life and used as a sacrifice.”
Paul Murphy: “And most people would be skeptical of Jenny’s story of satanic ritual abuse, except for one thing - her parents confessed. In these letters the parents ask for forgiveness and describe the abuse in detail. Her mother wrote: ‘He cut off your nightclothes and panties. A dog was hung by the back feet, throat cut and disemboweled and hind legs cut off. You were hung by your feet after being bound.’ Others have told similar stories, but had no physical proof.”
Paul Murphy:….Her father wrote: ’I performed the same sexual acts on you at home. The sexual acts on you at home. The sexual abuse in our home was a repeat of the ritual.’
Paul Murphy: “Confessed, and even paid up. The parents settled out of court to pay Jenny’s therapy bills.”

Ritual abuse does exist, victim says by Jerry Spangler - Deseret News Staff Writer
From the time she was 3 years old until she became a young adult, Rachel Hopkins (not her real name) was ritualistically tortured, raped, bathed in blood and threatened she would be killed if she ever told anyone….
Like most victims of satanic ritual abuse, Hopkins remembered the abuse many years later. But her case is significantly different from others. She has the signed confessions of her parents - both of whom admitted abusing her during satanic rituals - that corroborate every memory she has of the abuse. The confessions offer much greater detail of events Rachel could not have ever known. Hopkins’ parents also confessed in detail to two investigators from the Utah Attorney General’s Office and to the leaders of the church they attended. Hopkins was also able to recover a photograph of herself as a child that shows bruises inflicted during the ritual abuse. Her siblings have also corroborated the events surrounding the ritual abuse….The truth is they (occultists) do wear black robes, they do abuse children, they do kill animals,” she said. “It exists, and to say otherwise is to deny the facts in front of them. Our society used to deny the existence of incest, too, because we didn’t want to believe it.”….Two years and eight months ago, the memories started coming back. At first, she couldn’t believe it either. She has heard of satanic ritual abuse before but had never associated memories with that behavior. “The first time I called my parents up and told them I had been sexually abused and I knew they did it, they told me I was hallucinating,” she said. “Since that time, they have written letters to each of the children confirming everything in explicit detail.”
