On July 30, 2012, Phoenix Goddess Temple Founding Member, Tamara Marie Brusso, was found dead of an untreated blood clot aneurysm while awaiting her right to a speedy trial in the charges filed against her by Maricopa County Attorney's Office. Due to Brusso's declared indigent status, her true cause of death was allegedly covered up and labeled "accidental overdose". Brusso's body was cremated (in violation of her religious beliefs) and any evidence that the hospital and/or County Attorney's Office may have been negligent, was destroyed WITHOUT AN INVESTIGATION. The Judge involved in the case, which AS OF THIS WRITING IN THE FALL OF 2015 HAS YET TO GO TO TRIAL AT GREAT EXPENSE TO THE TAXPAYERS OF ARIZONA AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, issued a Stay-Away Order for all co-defendants, which may or may not have been unconstitutional and resulted in the tragic death of co-defendant and Phoenix Goddess Temple founding member, Tamara Marie Brusso, who might have received immediate and life-saving medical attention if she had not been court-ordered not to have contact with her only existing support system of her temple and her spiritual advisors, who were labeled "co-defendants" rather than innocent religious observers, who had yet to be proven guilty, while being denied their right to a speedy trial.
According to the Camp Verde Bugle News article dated September 8, 2011 http://cvbugle.com/main.asp?SectionID=1&SubsectionID=1&ArticleID=3180
"Among individuals arrested in Sedona was Goddess Temple founder Tracy Elise, 50, who was involved in a similar suspected brothel in Seattle, shut down by law enforcement in 2009. She was arrested in Sedona based on a Maricopa County Grand Jury warrant. Elise faces charges of prostitution, illegal control of a criminal enterprise, pandering and operating a house of prostitution. Also arrested in Sedona were Tamara Brusso, 53, and Niki Faldemolaei, 51. Brusso was arrested based on a Grand Jury warrant from Maricopa County, and Faldemolaei was arrested on charges of participating in a criminal syndicate, keeping a house of prostitution, receiving earnings of prostitution, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.On February 25, 2013 in a forum on DemocraticUnderground.com, co-indictee, Baba Dez posted,
Sedona Police Commander Marlayne Hatler says, the investigation involving Phoenix undercover officers and Sedona PD surveillance has been ongoing and more arrests are expected to be made. The Maricopa County indictment listed 33 names. The Phoenix police investigation began in early August. Once it became apparent that Phoenix Temple also has operations in Sedona, it became a joint investigation."
"The media loves to spin a story. Not only was I never charged with anything, I was never even wanted for questioning. All charges were dropped against Sedona Temple's manager Niki Faldenmolaei; Tracy Elise's Goddess Temples were totally different organizations and the police made a grave error in thinking we were the same organizations. This is all symptomatic of spiritual and sexual ignorance. There is much education that needs to happen in Arizona, the USA and the world. Humanity is still in the process of coming out of the Dark Ages."
From September 2011 until now, out of approximately 33 indictments, and approximately 40 co-defendants, all but three have been "resolved" by plea bargain. The three resolved women with "unresolved cases", include deceased Tamara Brusso; while Phoenix Goddess Temple co-founder Tracy Elise, and her literal last co-defendant standing, are still awaiting their right to a speedy trial, and still awaiting discovery that contains exculpatory evidence, while taxpayer dollars have been allocated to another SIX HOUR PRETRIAL HEARING THIS MONDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2015. Elise was told that only the next-of-kin can file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of Tamara Brusso, and hopes that the eventual exoneration a trial could finally provide, will help to honor Brusso's memory and their shared determination to exercise the right to exercise freedom of religion as is protected by the Constitution for the United States of America.
Call Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery's Office at 602.506.3411 and ask why limited taxpayer resources are being abused in prolonging a Trial By Ordeal of practitioners of an unpopular religion, in what may not even be the proper court of jurisdiction; and ask him to instead Please Investigate the Unconstitutional Death of Tamara Marie Brusso as an alleged Abuse of Judicial Immunity and Prosecutorial Misconduct exerted Under the Color of Law by Maricopa County officials.
