Abraham J. Shorey told the Cornell Daily Sun today that, “he was not the Creeper, and that the Ithaca Police Department was simply trying to pin the blame on someone.” He feels that he is a scapegoat for the Collegetown Creeper case, and that the Ithaca Police Department wanted closure over justice. “I’ve been at the wrong place at the wrong time,” he said.
His wife, Lisa Lake has engaged in an interesting campaign on his behalf. Speaking to the Cornell Daily Sun, she says, “He’s being accused of all these things he hasn’t done. The Creeper needs to be known and it’s not Abe.” And this isn’t the only war she’s raging. Look at Lisa’s comment on the Sun’s article:
HE IS INNOCENT, HE DOESN’T FIT THE DESCIPTION OF THE CREEPER AND HE HAS 6 CHILDREN THAT HE LOVES VERY MUCH. HE HAS ALIBIES OF WHERE HE WAS AT. HE WAS NOT CREEPING ON WOMEN. PLEASE PEOPLE, HE DID ACCIDENTLY WALK INTO VERONICA’S ROOM BECAUSE HE WAS INTOXICATED AND LOOKING FOR THE DOOR THAT WOULD LEAD TO THE STAIRS. COME ON PEOPLE DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ
I get a sense of desperation from Lisa Lake’ post, written in all caps, full of spelling mistakes and grammatical issues. This is interesting in light of a MSN Groups post made by Lisa Lake on 3/11/2004:
Hey this is mama ISA, has anyone seen Abe? He was last seen heading to Sedona, he has blond dreadies and a northface black isis pack, Me and his 5 kids have not heard from him in a month, I am expecting my 6th child, so you figure the stress is a little bit too much for me. Does anyone know where he is?
Of course, that post is a dead-end, as looking up Lisa’s MSN Profile gives me:
Can’t Find Member Profile
The nickname you have selected belongs to a user who is no longer a member of this group.
The last bit of information about Lisa Lake is a forum post on Jan. 30 2004 under the alias “mamaisis:”
Greetings from cold ny, mama isa checking in with yall. Kids are all doing great. I just got finished with the cosmic interdemsional gridwork of old growth trees, from the great sequias in the west, to my final destination of trees in central park, ny city!! Connecting and asking for forgiveness to the human race. It is time to unify the power of true eternal love and forgiveness, and yes we have the trees as a means of signaling and channeling our prayers and wishes!! I think it is time we gather with the ancient trees together and pray for the grand unification, purification, and forgiveness of all things. The national rainbow gathering is going to be in Northern Ca. I am willing to organize a way for all of us to gather with the ancient big trees and perform the most amazing ceremony ever!! FOR THE HEALING OF OUR EARTH< lets do it kin!! These trees know me well, and are ready for this, and I feel we are ready too!! contact me for more info, or post me something, email@example.com.. LOVE YA ETERNALLY ISA
She also posted this “anonymous” comment on my previous post:
Hey he is innocent, I can’t even begin to tell you how he does not even match the desciption of the creeper if you look and do research you would realize this is not the creeper. And he has 6 beautiful children that he loves, there is no way that he would jepordize these little ones. Look at his eyes and see that he is kind. If anyone reads this and knows ABe stand up for him, we need to catch the real creeper!!
Looking at Police Records more closely, we find that Lisa Lake and Abraham J. Shorey have had previous altercations with the Law. They go way back:
12:58 p.m. As Officer Goodale attempted to arrest Abraham Shorey of Arcata on an outstanding traffic warrant near the Intermodal Transient Facility, a woman identified as Lisa Lake of Arcata reportedly objected to her friend’s arrest and tried to persuade Goodale to release him. According to police, Lake refused to leave the area of the police car in which Shorey had been placed. Then, police say, a bystander identified as Kelly Kanzulak of Eureka ran up to where Goodale was struggling with Lake, and pushed him. Kanzulak and Lake were then handcuffed and arrested. Everyone except Goodale went to jail.
So, Abraham Shorey will abandon his pregnant wife with 5 children, so that she has to post messages on internet forums in an attempt to find him. Abraham Shorey has a history of illegal activities, traffic warrants–on up. And yet his wife defends him from Arcata Police, from readers of the Daily Sun print and online, and my blog. Why would the Collegetown Creeper’s wife have such strong feelings for this man?
Update: For more information, see Collegetown Creeper Caught, which details Abraham Shorey’s arrest for the Collegetown Creeper crimes.
