Non-conservator * was appointed personal representative? Dad died intestate? What?


After my father‘s death on June 21, 2011, I sent copies of the “Will of Ronald Richard Kirkwood” via certified mail to the following:

  • Janice Cagle, Cedar County, MO public administrator & conservator & co-guardian of my father, Ronald Richard Kirkwood
  • Peter A. Lee, (Missouri Bar No. 55172) attorney for Janice Cagle AND guardian ad lidem (conveniently) for my father, Ronald Richard Kirkwood
  • Elizabeth V. Rohrs, (Missouri Bar No. 31433) attorney representing Mary Hackbirth Kirkwood * ( see photo below )
  • Cedar County Probate Court in care of Melinda Gumm, Cedar County, MO court clerk

I received all 4 notifications back signed and delivered. Mary Catherine Kirkwood *, (as listed this time), (see photo below) was then appointed personal representative of my father’s estate & that he died intestate. NOTE: Mary * was appointed co-guardian and NOT CONSERVATOR in the Guardianship proceedings (Case No: 10CD-PR0059), despite her requests & application. The Circuit Court of Cedar County, Missouri Probate Division, Judge Dennis D. Reaves, then put all fiduciary responsibility back in her hands on September 30, 2011?!?

Clearly this makes absolutely no sense.

isolate, medicate, take the estate

Appalling information about Missouri & Elder Abuse!

I am appalled! Now this explains a little bit more to me why APS allowed my Dad to remain in the home of someone who was reported for neglect / exploitation / fraud etc. 4 times! My father died. I have yet to find a single person in Missouri that cares about elder abuse & guardianship / conservator abuse. Especially in Cedar County, the judges look past the obvious abuse that is taking place in order for the attorneys and public administrators to PROFIT!! Something has to be done!   signed, Lark E.

Durable Power Of Attorney / Forgery, Undue Influence, & Notary Fraud


This document was produced by Mary Hackbirth Kirkwood * (unsure of actual name) several days after James Kelley and my attorney Matt Buergler asked her how she had the legal right to retain representation for my father, Ronald Kirkwood, to evict me from his home. My father had not known her name in years and had not been able to sign his name, hold a pen, much less understand a 16 page document such as this. This is all documented in his VA medical records, his medical records from Citizens Memorial Hospital in Bolivar, Missouri, as well as through witness accounts. Needless to say, both attorneys, James Kelley (of Oklahoma City) & Matt Buergler (of Oklahoma City), told her she was going to have big problems.
Peter A. Lee, attorney, guardian ad Lidem in guardianship hearing AND attorney for public administrator Janice Cagle, who served as co-guardian & conservator for my Dad, was made aware of this forgery and fraud of a DPOA. He stated when I gave this to him,

There is no question that this document is forged.

Peter Lee had the chance to save my father’s life. I gave him several file boxes of evidence such as this on a flash drive. He knew what was going on with my father & the neglect and abuse that was occurring. He assured me my Dad would be in safe hands under Janice Cagle. Little did I know, he also represented the public administrator of Cedar County, Missouri in addition to being former partners in law with the newly appointed Judge Dennis Reaves. Peter Lee was paid several thousand dollars when my Dad passed away. (as were Janice Cagle, Elizabeth Rohrs, of Bolivar, MO (attorney for Mary *), & even Mary * herself.) Judge David Munton of Dade County, MO approved all of this without proper notice of a hearing, at the least, to interested parties. (my brother & myself) Peter Lee charged my father’s estate almost $100 for trying to notify me of my father’s death. Thanks Peter! I found out via FaceBook.
