One of our colleagues (a very hardworking investigative soul) has been working to uncover more information about Heidi's claims of being a foster parent and the fundraiser that took place on the Kimkins website for the alleged foster children.
As the State of CA Foster Care stated that Heidi has not been paid a foster parent stipend for nearly seven years (which indicates that she had no foster children through the State program), our unnamed source began to contact the private foster care agencies in Riverside County, CA. The research led her to the Community Care Licensing Agency, the office that is the overseer agency "in charge of all the private foster family agencies."
Our colleague spoke with Virna Wright, who has never heard of Heidi K. Diaz and who also made a very important statement. Virna said that "foster parents are not allowed, EVER, to raise or accept funds on behalf of the foster children in their care."
So, what are we left with?
Either - Heidi had foster children through some agency that is not registered with the private foster agencies OR the State of California (which is rather unlikely, don't you think?) and accepted funds on their behalf, which is ILLEGAL.
Heidi never had any foster children and accepted funds on behalf of the figments of her imagination.
No matter which is true, Heidi is in trouble. If she had foster children, she broke the law by accepting money on their behalf. If she did not have foster children, she accepted money for a fraudulent fundraiser.
Let's not forget that Jeannie Baitinger, aka TippyToes, the new Kimkins Director of Public Relations, was the member that spearheaded the fraudulent fundraiser, and is now further implicated in the deception.
