This is a private message sent to Leah Parsons. It was made public by her. It’s what happened on that fateful occasion.
‘Ok I understand, there may be things in this that may be very disturbing to you but I need to let you know. So we started off drinking in coles house with reh, becca me and cole, we ended up going to coles room and becca went out side for a smoke, while me and cole were in his room with reh we started doing things with her and she was ok with it (I am not the type to force sex upon anyone I have 2 older sisters and I respect girls the way I would want them to be respected ) becca came upstairs and was angry with rehtaeh because me and cole were beccas ex’s and becca asked her to leave and go back home with her. She refused to leave and so becca left without her. Me and cole were having sex with her for a little bit and she was still ok with it but about 15 mins after becca left reh looked like she was going to get sick so I asked her and she said she was good but then she started to quinch a bit so I ran to coles window and opened it and we both helped her over so she could get sick, she was out the window for about 5 mins and we were asking if she was ok, she said “I’m fine you guys can keep going if you want” I told cole to go ahead and he then told me to go ahead, so when I went again I’m not sure if it was my phone or his but the picture was taken without her noticing and me being a drunk idiot I posed for the picture. After she got out of the window. We layed her in bed to go to sleep. Becca then showed up with her mom and I ran to answer the door. Becca and her mom told me that she has to go back to beccas or you were going to be very mad at beccas mom, so I let becca in the house and she went upstairs and we got her dressed and she was refusing to leave with becca and was saying she was going to sleep, becca left with her mom, the other 2 boys are cody and hunter(coles little brother) we asked them to help us bring her to the spare room so she could sleep there and cole could sleep in hisown bed, so we woke her up and she didn’t want to go down stairs so cody tryed to pick her up and she hit him in the face once then we kept bugging her to get up and she finally did and walked down stairs to the spare room, she layed in the bed and it was just me and cody and her then cody I remember cody telling her to kiss him and she did then he asked me to leave the room, I then left the room and sat on the couch in the living room, about 20 mins later cody came out with a smirk on his face and I had curfew so I told him I had to go home so him and reh. Walked me to the door and he told her to kiss me goodnight and I said I was fine and gave him props and I just gave her a hug good night. I went home and slept. I woke up the next day and was talking to cole and he told me that she had sex with cody and hunter. Even though I am good friends with all of them I cannot lie to you and say we all did not rape her, I can tell you forsure that I did not rape her and while I was at the house I did not see any of the other 3 boys do anything that would cause her harm. Yes I will admit to braging about the picture for a few weeks and Yes I did send it to some people, but please believe me that I did not hurt your daughter that night, becca is trying to support me and she always told me that while she was there she said “reh was asking for you guys” I have a lot of people mad at me over this and I understand but I am trying not to get rebecca involved because she has a lot of things going on in her life. That picture ruined my life and it is the worst thing that happened to me, I am truely very sorry for this I even inboxed rehtaeh a few days after she left CHH and appologysed for the picture but by then it was to late and people were sending it around, I have been getting harrassed on and off for the past year about it and I just left for vacation friday morning and when I found out Reh was in the hospital I inboxed Kelsey Patterson about it and she made me very upset saying basically it was all my fault she is in the hospital and if I want to know what happened to her ask someone else so I asked another person that had a status about her and they told me what happened I then went to my room and cryed, I don’t want people to think I’m a monster because that’s not who I am, I don’t expect you to forgive me I just want people to know I didn’t rape her.’
Leah Parsons also received the following handwritten letter, which she also made public:
‘Its no ones business what happened she was not raped she had 3sum with me n cole then after that I did not see the other 2 boys have sex with her but she walked down stairs to a bedroom and fucked 1 guy then walked back up stairs to fuck hunter me and cole did not rape her I can’t speak on behalf of cody and hunter even tho they are real good friends this is serious and I never seen her have sex with them 2 but me and cole did not rape her we were all drinking with another girl and the other girl asked reh. To leave with her and she refused so the girl left me n cole had sex with reh and then the other girl showed up with her mom cuz reh was supposed to stay the night we got her dressed and she punched cody and kept refusing to leave so the other girl left but I’m not getting into to much detail its a long story but not rape’
I find it surprising that Leah Parsons shares her private messages online.
Actually, I don’t. Leah and Glen pretended to be ‘Anonymous’ informers. Leah’s personal emails and letters were published by her. Nova Scotia is such a tiny village-mentality sort of place (think ‘Duelling Banjos’ only much colder). Everyone knows everyone else, the grapevine works well. But Leah and Glen couldn’t be seen to be provoking unrest by releasing information that the police had told them to keep under wraps. So they manufactured ‘opRehtaehParsons’. There never was any Anonymous. How else do you think Leah’s inbox was so accessible?
The emails show the closest and most accurate reflection of what happened. Like this one:
‘”Hi, I know your upset about the situation but I have to let you know exactly what happened I will send you some of the messages between me and reh.s mom, I just want to start off by saying she wasn’t raped it is her moms cover up story for her daughter having sex on 3 different occations with 4 different guys! I am not telling people this for a lie to get my way out of it but people need to know exactly what happened that night and that she was asking for us the whole night and we were all drinking she wouldn’t of called it rape if she wasn’t embarrised about the picture but just think, if you had sex with a few guys and a picture got out that u didn’t know was taken and you told your mom you were rapped…. Well she’s not a good mother if she didn’t believe you. But again you wouldn’t want to admit to your mom that you had SEX so you would say it was RAPE justt to make it eaiser I swear on my familys life from what I saw that night she was not rapped her best friend was at the house and was asking her to leave and she refused so she got left at the house then after she had 2 guys at once she went to a room and had another guy (I didn’t see if she was raped I wasn’t there) and when they were done I went home, I woke up the next day to find out she had sex with my bestfriends little brother, now believe me or not that is exactly what happened that night and being called a rapest hurts a lot when that’s not the person I am.’
Later on this week, I’ll be looking more closely at all this. Ta ta for now!
