Timeline of Evil at Berkeley Heights Elementary Martinsburg, West Virginia October 4: A child’s mother put a hidden recorder in her hair when her non-verbal daughter began acting not like herself. Recording shared three teachers torturing children with special needs- teachers Christina Lester, June Yurish, and Kristin Douty. I listened to the recording provided by Owen’s mother. Miss Lester comments: Owen, are you gonna jerk off in the chair? Adriana, gonna vomit on me today, unibrow? I’m gonna beat your butt. Elasia, I don’t know if I trust you- you’re a cannibal- you gonna murder me? Miss Yurish comments: Owen, lift your head up, its disrespectful. Pulls his ear and says, You can rip you own ear off. If you put your head forward you’ll rip your ear off pick head up. I am not playing with you. As soon as she stops crying, I am going to put her hands right back inside these scissors. I ought to backhand you right in your teeth. Shut up (hits Owen). You’re not getting anything to eat. I’ll punch you in your face. Other comments: I’m going to pull your hair until you start crying. Don’t throw it, you animal. You wench. You’re like a Pygmy. I’m gonna knock you out. Your tears dried up so quickly...crocodile. October 4: Last day child will attend that school. October 5: Parents contacted police who met with IEP coordinator and principal. Principal called mother after meeting and said teachers talking to each other. Mother also spoke to education coordinator and explained why child would no longer be a student. October 8-11: Recording sent to Special Education Coordinator Karen Petrucci, Asst.

Berkeley Medical Center Statement This morning, I received a call from the Head of Human Resources at Berkeley Medical Center. Former teacher Kristina Lester is no longer any employee of the medical center as a crisis counselor. Kristina Lester was recorded hitting and emotionally abusing children in her care at Berkeley Heights Elementary in Martinsburg, West Virginia on October 4, 2018. While I am thankful she is no longer employed as a crisis counselor in Behavioral Health at Berkeley Medical Center, I made known details which had escaped the CEO and Human Resource Director. I shared that Kasey Murphy, mother of Owen who was abused by his teacher Kristina Lester, had been asked to resign from her position at Berkeley Medical Center in early December. Kasey, who worked on the same floor as Ms. Lester, had shared her distaste for working in proximity of the teacher who subjected her child to horror and thus, was asked to leave. Her superior, for reasons unknown, is no longer employed at the hospital. Kasey resigned and Kristina Lester remained employed. While I believe the man I spoke to this morning was truthful, I am horrified at the continued protection offered by Berkeley Medical Center, Berkeley County Schools and School Board, and Berkeley Heights Elementary of people who are macabre predators. On Monday evening, parents will ask for the resignation of Principal Amber Boeckman and Superintendent Manny Arvon, the highest paid Superintendent in West Virginia. The fact that both administrators listened to children being tortured and chose to leave them in the care of their evildoers and keep the truth from their families is beyond forgiveness in the realm of education. Join in me in sharing their story and supporting the families whose children were knowingly subjected to continued horror and their wish to ensure the safety of all children in Berkeley County. ...
