❤ 🎂 BRYCE 🎂 ❤ You had just turned fifteen years old when you were arrested and then wrongfully convicted. Now your twenty six. I Love you. I miss you so much. I will never stop trying to help you and or find help for you. ❤
*At Montford Unit, On the phone, my son finally sounds GOOD AGAIN! 😊❤*
💕 still searching for a probono lawyer and or law students to help free Bryce. Name any group or organization etc across this nation, who proclaim to help people like My son and I, I have contacted them more than once, all they offer is their emailed newsletter. L.I.F.E.
This week I had to tell Bryce his older brother Brett Ryan Vandergrift passed away, from complications of diabetes. He was 34 and my first child, he was not married, and had no children. I suspect he did not get to his EXSPENSIVE insulin in time, passed out and fell into a coma.
How can people say there is a God? A good God? 💔.
thanks a lot @codeofvets for saying NO, again to granting me $2k. More often lately, I’ve been wishing Bryce and I were dead.
and other court files and documents… why? because they are filled with HORRIFIC and BOGUS LIES.
A PROSECUTOR’S number one GOAL is to CONVICT. In the case against my then 15 year old mentally ill Child… there were TWO prosecutors present in court. http://www.4brycesbattle.org
Bryce’s TRUTH never stood a chance. GUILTY WITHOUT-a-REASONABLE DOUBT… why? because nothing was presented to DEFEND-HIM. How are you going to secure a conviction, if you present the TRUTH about actual tragic events, and or if this CHILD’S TRUTH and factual strong defence is presented? Bodies in Prison are COMMODITIES. 💰
There were seven news stories. Bryce was gaining sympathy from the public. At one point those in control, caused Bryce to appear as a CRAZY HORRIFIC HUMAN, it’s what was done, also very common. DISCREDITING me as his MOTHER was necessary, because I was NOT in agreement with a false case against my then CHILD. Obtaining my signature under false pretenses was easy. All of this to sealed Bryce’s Fate. The GOAL was to have this Special Needs CHILD, live in a CAGE FOR THIRTY YEARS.
*IT’S-COMMON-PRACTICE* What would happen if we reopened every Police-Report, Every-Case and compared it to Factual-Truth? I believe Prisons nationwide would be near empty!
If I had those documents and files, I’d post detailed facts that would refute the lies with factual official documents and data, and on some issues, I would deliver a viable explanation likely back-up with facts and official data also.
INTERESTED IN HELPING FREE BRYCE? PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I know, Who can any of us trust? Everything-is-Corrupt. Journalism seems all about sensationalist in the worse way. 💔 ALL these things are DESTROYING FAMILIES.
I was told by one of Bryce’s friends that No one liked Nick and they tried to get Bryce to stop being friends with Nick, but that Nick controlled Bryce.
A MENTALLY ILL BRAIN CANNOT HANDLE DEFENDING ITSELF AGAINST MANIPULATION. BRYCE’S CASE SHOWS HE WAS MANIPULATED TO TAKE THE FALL. HIS WELL DOCUMENTED HISTORY SHOWS WHILE ON HIS MEDICATIONS AND IN MY CARE, HE WAS FINE! The lies against myself and my son generated in TX.

🌟 IT WAS EASY TO SET BRYCE UP. 🌟
*My son is deteriorating in prison. Some days my spirit is so tormented that I’ve wished us dead. Other days I recover and carry on ONLY for the sake of my son who I love dearly. I cannot think of one positive thing to say about prison 🇺🇸.
Anything minutely good is by BY FAR OVERSHADOWED by the bad, the very bad, the worse than bad, the WORSE of the WORSE. Words that come to mind are barbaric, disgusting, DEHUMANIZING, deplorable, inhumane, DESTRUCTIVE and evil.
Prison life reaches in to GRAB A HOLD OF YOUR VERY CORE.
It’s hunger is to destroy, and if that isn’t bad enoughwhen it’s done CHEWING you & those that love you up…it SPITS you out upon the GUTTER and says…YOU’LL BE BACK.

A list of professional persons in the state of Texas, that I have requested assistance from, for my son in this on going matter. The list includes those that ignored my pleas for help to save my son and those that misdirected me, gave me the run around and or flat out lie.
GO LOOK AT MY SON AND SEE FOR YOURSELF. They REMOVED HIS SCHIZOPHRENIA DIAGNOSIS “AGAIN” AND PUT HIM IN THE HOLE, Mid DEC 2019- Bryce also has MAJOR DEPPRESSIVE DISORDER. They then diagnosed him with “SEVERE PSYCHOSIS.” I exspress that psychosis is a SYMPTOM of schizophrenia. It runs in my blood family.
They seriously do not appreciate when you advocate for your child, they take it personally. I’m just trying to save my child from dying at the hands of ADULTS.
Bryce has been a G2 for years. I suspect this unit will attempt to build a false BEHAVIORAL disciplinary case history against my son. Some how Bryce will be blamed. He’s conditioned to reply with… I’m okay.
If an inmate speak out about any form of abuse by those who have power over them… that inmate WILL BE TAUGHT A LESSON… he will wish he was dead. I KNOW HE WISHES HE WAS DEAD. HE IS SUICIDAL.
WHAT SKYVIEW TDCJ TELL ME
I’m being told by TDCJ, that it’s UTMB medical and mental health staff who are AGAIN removing Bryce’s diagnosis. I can’t be sure because, with this diagnosis removed, it’s TDCJ STAFF that will BENEFIT by removing him as needing protection, and staff isn’t required to check on non-schizophrenic as often.
RIPE FOR SUICIDE.
Bryce is a PASSIVE 25 yr old young man, who is being placed under brutal conditions “ON PURPOSE” by TDCJ Staff. When will Skyview-UTMB mental/medical staff report this, and or INTERVENE? UTMB website gives a list of items that lead to suicide. Yet it’s acceptable for TDCJ to force inmates into a SUICIDAL MINDSET.
He now has AGORAPHOBIA because of being in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT & consistently mistreated.
MOVE HIM OUT OF THIS UNIT BEFORE HE TURNS UP DEAD.
THE ABUSE CONTINUES
He has now dropped “A LOT” of WEIGHT from these SERIOUSLY DANGEROUS NON-STOP-RESTRICTIONS & PUNISHMENTS & removal of his true diagnosis…
TWO SMALL MEALS A DAY, WITH NO NUTRITIONAL VALUE…EQUATE TO SLOWLY STARVING A HUMAN BEING.
My son is at least 6’2 ft tall and now under 150 pds. HIS TEETH are now the size of a five year old. HIS SKIN IS TRANSLUCENT WHITE from LACK of NUTRITION & LACK of SUN. HIS EYES LOOK SUNKEN IN. Just twenty five years old and he’s dying.

April 8th 2020, I contacted soneone outside of skyview, within hours Skyview unit told me my son was off restrictions, out of the hole and he was now in a group therapy and has his own cell in the dorms…. *That lasted a day.*
EASY TARGET EASY PREY
Humans like Bryce cannot defend themselves. Not mentally or physically.
4-18-2020 Restrictions remain, he is still in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT or AdSeg, Segregation, It’s also called nicer sounding names. They placed him on strick restrictions, even restricting showers and drinking water. His Deterioration has exhilarated since SKYVIEW entered into his life. No tv, no outside, no socilizing, no phone calls or commissary, no visitors, a small amount of food passed through a slot in door…NOTHING! He was kept in hole for hours, days, months and it continues.
In Dec 2019, a reporter wanted to interview him. She didnt get to do that.
To be continued
I want my son alive and well. I want my son to come HOME, so I can get him well again.
baby please hold on. 🙏
So many FAMILIES have warned TDCJ, that their incarcerated loved one is in danger, the PRISONER’S can’t take anymore ABUSE they become SUICIDAL from the constant MISTREATMENT.
IMO OMBUDSMENS DUTY IS TO PROTECT TDCJ STAFF. I’ve been emailing them non-stop! They look at your email and send a responds back in a letter which reads: OFFENDER SAYS HE’S OKAY or HE’S FINE. You know & TDCJ knows he’s suffering… UTMB knows, SO MANY UNNECESSARY-DEATHS.
THE DANGER REMAINS
I believe Skyview Personnel want to seek REVENGE against me for a letter I wrote on OpEdNews PRISON-IS-QUIETLY DESTROYING-MY-SON.
The Gov of Texas read that letter and had my son removed from dangerous COFFIELD-UNIT where he was also put in AdSeg = SOLITARY-CONFINEMENT. Bryce was reassigned back to SKYVIEW. I heard COFFIELD-UNIT just had ANOTHER-SUICIDE in their AdSeg solitary confinement cell.
Please help save Bryce.
I request that my son be removed from Skyview and placed back to MONTFORD UNIT, Lubbock Texas. Montford had a similar incident years ago. A 27 yr old died under the same circumstances. I’m told they have not had another incident since. Move him to a hospital, somewhere SAFE!
I am the mother of Bryce, who is incarcerated at Montford Unit. I am glad he is there as I believe they have saved his life both physically & mentally several time’s in the past.
I dread e-mailing you as it means… ▶I am once again fearful for my son’s life. The more I think about the situation, the more I believe he is once again susceptible to taking his life and or being beaten into a vegetative state of existence, and or mudered by his cellmates or other◀
I attribute some of these problems to the tremendous stress from restrictions of covid placed on this unit, and I am told all prison’s and alike places in Texas are DANGEROULY OVERCROWDED & UNDERSTAFFED. I get that many are apathetic towards human’s being put in cages, but Texas TDCJ, should not want to overburden their employees. There is plenty of fund’s. Who ever is doing the budget, is who should be replaced.
I’ve read that in Texas, staff can be exspected to work 12 to 16 hour shifts with one 30 minute break.
I personally do not look at staff as robot’s, robot’s have no problem working under these conditions for month’s on end. Staff are human beings, just as the incarcerated are human beings.
What if an incarcerated is trying to tell them they believe their LIFE is in DANGER, but staff has increased duties, or fighting to stay awake! It lends to serious frightening images IN AN ADVOCATORS MIND, let alone any concerned parent like me.
I believe that inside the cell cage, or also outside it, my son is being threatened. I believe his property is being stolen. This includes his letters and stationary, stamps. I believe my son is intimidated and afraid for his safety and is looking for ways to be removed from the cell in order to get away from being seriously harmed. Does someone in the cell have life sentence? Would murdering someone like Bryce be a big deal?
My son Bryce just got out of SUICIDE WATCH “AGAIN” He lost his brother, my first born, 34 yr old Brett Ryan Vandergrift, passed away in Dec 2020, from complications of diabetes.
Since back at Montford, my beloved son had more or less FINALLY started to sound better. It’s been a hard eleven year’s. Maybe Montford makes certain that people get their meds? Which is GREAT!
IMHO, some units do not have or take time to adequately monitor meds. Heck I don’t know, maybe cellies or other’s are also intimidating him for his medication. It happened every where else! Then the voices will return and my beautiful soul of a son will START TO BECOME CONVINCED that someone or more around him, are trying to extort and hurt his mom. “Psychotic Breakdowns” he has schizophrenia & deep deppression disorder.
My son needs his medication. I think HALADOL is a dangerous drug to give a person with Bryce’s medical and mental health history. It goes way back to age three with EARLY INTERVENTION for SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN. They, UTMB, won’t give him ABILIFY 10 to 15 mg, my guess is because it cost more. Ms. Pritchard said she would… waiting…
Abilify is what he was prescribed for year’s before his arrest on 12-31-2009. My son and I are in the AUTISM SPECTRUM, imagine that. ABILIFY is one of the medications his father DavidVandergrift took him off, & other’s did to. NO ADULTS WERE ARRESTED. WHY?
I will tell you that this constant concern for the safety of his life is wearing on me. It is giving me image’s. IMAGES OF HIM COMMITTING SUICIDE in the punishment cell.
Bryce would be thinking, “every time I try to get myself away from danger, conflicts and fights, I GET PUNISHED” and guess what, I understand this, you want to or must punish him. It’s regulation, though you know he is STILL being force to run in place from harm.
What I do not understand is ▶WHY IS HE BEING PUT BACK IN SAME SITUATION WHEN HE IS GIVING YOU ALL THE WARNING SIGNS THAT SOMETHINGS GOING BAD & HE’S TRYING TO ESCAPE BEING BEATEN or DIE!◀
I picture him dead in the punishment room. Maybe he just bangs his head against the wall to die. Back in the cell, I picture the cellies or whom ever, holding his mouth and bashing in his skull or his chest in, hanging him and then passing out his property, going to sleep and when staff walks by they say… Oh, Vandergrift must of hung himself while we were sleeping. Oh, I guess that’s why he gave all his stuff to us before light’s out. PAINFUL IMAGE’S.
I DO NOT BELIEVE that the majority of incarcerated are violent, dangerous criminals that we must be kept safe from. I do think some are. But when YOU put too many mentally ill people in a cage… Only God knows what is happening to them, TRANSFORMING THEM into highly agitated beings just wanting to escape. Taking my son’s letters & property would help them. Help them to ESCAPE in their MIND’S. In their mentally ill mind’s.
Two of those letters are from two TEXAS PRISON MINISTER’S. Through these men, my son was FINALLY going to receive some attention from adult men of God. These letter exchange’s would have lead to him having a MENTOR. I do a lot to keep my son OKAY. And I gladly do without for him. His father has ZERO interest in Bryce, though on the phone he will no doubt deliver a good performance.
These letters that I believe he finally got, will or have once again been taken from him. He hasn’t written ANYONE, and THAT is out of character.
Inside this cell, things must be pretty bad for this young male in prison to not even be able to respond to letter’s from TWO TEXAS MINISTER’S. God has these chosen people, in position for people like me and people like Bryce. And many other’s. That’s pretty darn sorry if y’all ask me. Who made up this PRISON PLAN?
▶PLEASE DO NOT LET ANYONE KILL MY SON. ▶PLEASE KEEP BRYCE FROM COMMITTING SUICIDE. Advocates know that there have been MURDERS, and people BEATEN INTO A VEGETATIVE STATE, & an EPIDEMIC OF SUICIDE than on MSM.
I do appreciate your time. I appreciate if your concern. I ask that you not focus on challenging my word’s… Instead, know that I LOVE MY SON and I’m asking you to not let him be harmed and or be placed with those that want to hurt him, or put him in the emergency room “AGAIN.”
You have to have some male’s that have their own property and are passive, NOT passive / aggressive when they do not get what they want. I know that there are MANY WHO HAVE BEEN ABANDONED they have nothing or no-one. They rightfully get angry, and or deppressed. THEY ARE HUMAN’S.
I have talked to someone in TDCJ on the phone. I do not feel comfortable calling him back to tell him I’m getting images because I’m a Mother first and of the ongoing situation still not resolved. Will the under pressure unit place Bryce in danger? Of course he will say he is okay. You know that. ONE CANNOT SNITCH!!!
Consider this… Texas does NOT need another death or a near death beat down, or suicide that OBVIOUSLY CAN BE AVOIDED. TX Montford Unit I have believed is the best medical / mental health unit for my son and his illness.. and possibly the best of the worse that Texas has. ▶EVERY OTHER UNIT IN TX, “MY SON” has BEEN PHYSICALLY OR MENTALLY HARM!◀ MontfordUnit has a lot going on. Give them MORE FUND’S and MORE HELP.
I keep trying to get thing’s in order so as to move to Texas, and stuff keeps happening that makes me have to STOP EVERYTHING I AM DOING… JUST SO MY BELOVED SON REMAINS SAFE & ALIVE.
🙏 🙏 🙏
Regards & God Bless us all. Ms. Dorothy “MARIE” Pelletier. Bryce’s M❤M. Hang in there S❤N, I’m still here, I’m still trying. ▶God is involved and moving you into a SURVIVABLE EXISTENCE◀ position… so we can rest our weary selves for a little while longer.
🌟 THE REASON THE HONORABLE JUDGE FOUND 15 YR OLD CHILD GUILTY WITHOUT REASONABLE DOUBT… IS BECAUSE NO ONE PRESENTED HIS STRONG DEFENSE. 🌟
I know it’s WAY too long. I just had so much to say.
