Dennis Milstead confronting WFTV reporter & camera man
Now comes this bomb shell from WFTV regarding Dennis Milstead who runs the Kid Finders Network …
Watch the above video of Dennis Milstead getting physical once again with a camera man has he did just recently in Blanchard Park during a meeting with the Anthony’s and Leonard Padilla. Temper, temper.
He’s been arrested twice, once for assault and once for impersonating a police officer, and he’s the man Caylee Anthony’s grandparents are trusting to help find their granddaughter.
Dennis Milstead runs the so-called Kid Finders Network, but Eyewitness News uncovered serious problems with his criminal past and his not-for profit group, including the fact Kid Finders has never found anybody.
Still, the organization is out every day, collecting donations using jars with Caylee’s picture on them. Even the Palm Beach County sheriff’s sergeant who helps run their Crime Stoppers operation says Orange County deputies have been warned about Milstead.
When Eyewitness News confronted Milstead about his criminal past, he got very quiet and then he grabbed WFTV reporter Kathi Belich’s microphone and pushed the camera while WFTV photographer Adam Liberatore was holding on to it.
Pictures of the confrontation can be seen here.
WFTV also goes on to report that Milstead in the past claimed he was a law enforcement officer, was arrested for a felony but plead down to a misdemeanor and seven months later another arrest for assault. Eyewitness News also reported that the president of Crime Stoppers in south Florida had a restraining order against Milstead.
Milstead’s pickup truck had a “Gotcha” emblem on the side of it instead of the Kid Finders emblem he has now. West Palm Beach police say he flashed phony blue lights and claimed he was a law enforcement officer. He plead his felony down to a misdemeanor and seven months later another arrest for assault.
Eyewitness News has also learned that the president of Crime Stoppers in south Florida had a restraining order against Milstead after he allegedly tried to connive a 90-percent cut of any donations he solicited for the group. At the time, Milstead was operating a business called Gotcha Billboards, but he was reportedly representing himself as an employee of the non-profit Crime Stoppers.
Milstead’s Kid Finders Network mentions its intentions to raise funds a number of times, mainly so it says it can build more billboards to report on missing children. Its list of accomplishments does not include finding any missing children.
So the grand parents of missing Caylee Anthony are putting all their eggs in the Kid Finders basket? A basket that has never found a missing child and has no track record of success. Bizarre to say the least.
