Here’s how things work at Hoaxtead Research: we’ll be all set to write a particular post—research done, screenshots and links gathered, the beginnings of a story in our head—when something comes along at the last minute that completely blows our plans out of the water, and we wind up doing something completely different…but better. Like this, for example:
Anyone remember Finbarr?
Let’s go back…waaaaaay back, to late October 2015. At that time, we had managed to put together a transcript from a video that had surfaced, in which an older Irishman with greying facial hair and a bit of a wheeze secretly recorded himself talking to Abe and Ella. We were unable at that time to determine who this person was, or what his relevance was to Abe and Ella: all we knew was his first name, Finbarr.
For context, here’s a review of Finbarr’s secret recording, which can be found here
Warning: the sound quality is very poor; we recommend that you listen with headphones only.
It is Tuesday, 08 Sept 2014, just after 2 pm. Finbarr has just been recording RD’s daughter inside the house. They are interrupted, and he jumps up and presumably shoves the phone in a pocket while it is still recording.
Finbarr whispers, “Yeah, yeah, good, good…” as though to himself.
Abe says, “Just keep your mouth shut…” then mumbles something inaudible.
A child’s voice (G?) asks, “Is it really bad?” and both men hasten to reassure him. “No, no, it’s not bad,” Finbarr says. Abe interjects, “It’s what we expected”.
“Exactly”, says Finbarr, “it’s why I’m here and he’s here”.
Abe repeats, “It’s what we expected”.
The child asks, “So one of them are…” but is drowned out by the two men: “Ahhhh!”
Finbar yells, “Rock and roll!” and then he and Abe both shout, “We know! We know!”
“Ha. All right?” asks Abe. “He’s all right,” Finbarr responds.
Abe says, “And they were telling him all about M.E., M.E., M.E.”
Finbarr asks, “What’s M.E.?” and Abe shouts, “Me!”
With a chuckle, Finbarr says, “Well, they can have me too”. At this point Ella enters the room, and she and Finbarr greet one another.
What’s this all about?
We’d suggest that Abe (and Finbarr?) had started off with a plan, and are now concerned that something has come up to derail it. They shout excitedly, as though trying to convince themselves that all will be well.
Abe sounds nervous as he says, “They want to talk to me. I wonder why they want to talk to me”, and then “It’s him. It’s him, who we suspected, S.T….” The child exclaims, “Steve!” and Abe confirms, muttering, “It’s him, it’s him, it’s him.”
Ella interjects, “They were really pressurising me today”.
But Abe is on his own track: “It’s him. We know it’s him.”
The child says, “I think I know what, it’s both of them. Fat lady and Steve…” but Abe goes on: “He likes, he doesn’t like babies. He likes boys. Steve, Steve likes boys. He came for F******” (referring to Abe’s teenage son).
Finbarr says, “Who’s that, the cop?”
Abe replies, “Yeah, he came for F*****”. And he didn’t get him because of me, right, he didn’t get him because of me…and now, he sees I’m here again, another child case. Well, I keep turning up. He keeps turning up”.
“Strange”, says Finbarr.
“Steve” refers to DC Steve Martin, who was the police officer involved when Abe assaulted F*****…and who coincidentally has been assigned to deal with the Hampstead case. Abe keeps muttering over and over, “It’s him”, as though he can’t quite believe this unexpected turn of events.
Ella’s contribution: “They were really pressurising me today” seems to confirm this. It sounds as though the police had begun to ask her some tough questions about her relationship with Abe, and his relationship with the children.
Abe mulls over the horrible coincidence of having this case—for which he’d had such high hopes—being handled by the cop who knows him to be a child abuser: “Now, he sees I’m here again, another child case. Well, I keep turning up. He keeps turning up”. And note that he’s already begun as he means to go on, accusing DC Martin of “liking boys”. This is Abe’s standard tactic: when feeling threatened, he throws shit at others.
“So he knows everything?” asks Ella.
“Oh, he knows, yeah”, Abe says. At this point his phone begins to ring. It’s his brother-in-law, Jean Clement Yaohirou.
“One moment, everyone keep cool”. Abe puts on his calm telephone voice: “Hi, Jean-Clement, how are you? I’ve got…erm…I tell you….” and then as an aside he says, “G, come with me”. In a small voice, G says, “Bye, Mum”. Abe continues: “I’ll be back in a minute, Mum (meaning Ella). You have a meditate and we’ll sort it all out, you’ve got the key.”
Finbarr mutters, “Strange days, strange days. I’m going to keep my shoes on”.
Ella tries again: “He was giving me pressure, those guy, today…the policeman”. Then, “We went out yesterday, to second house. G showed it”.
Finbarr says, “It might be a good idea if you get somewhere else”, to which Ella responds, “Sorry?” He repeats: “If you could try and move somewhere else….”
Ella asks, “Meaning where?”
“Anywhere”, says Finbarr.
“Out of the country?”
“This place isn’t safe. It’s the country…it’s in the institutions…it’s…away”.
Ella responds, “We knew that. We knew that. We were discussing this yesterday, just we were really like…yesterday. I am going to pack a bag”.
Finbarr says, “And then ask Abraham, he’ll say the same.”
Ella continues, “…away, in about two, three days…yesterday…we talked about it”.
Finbarr tries to sound upbeat: “Okay, everything is going to be cool. Well, we are going to make sure everything is going to be…cooler”. More loudly, he says, “That’s why I’m here, and that’s why he’s here, all right? I’m going to put on my shoes in case I need them, all right? I’m going to put my shoes on in case I need them”. There’s the sound of a door opening, and then he asks, “Who is Jean Clement?”
Ella whispers something, and Finbarr says, “It’s all going to get fixed.”
The video ends with the sound of a zipper, and then a quick shot of Finbarr’s shoeless foot.
Finbarr is familiar with Abe and Ella’s story, but isn’t close enough to them to know who Jean Clement is. Finbarr seems to view his job as “fixing” things for Abe and Ella, though how he planned to do this we cannot say.
This video does cast some light on Abe’s continuing animosity towards DC Steve Martin. He recently posted something about DC Martin being an Nth-degree Freemason or something, so clearly he still feels compelled to attempt to smear the cop who had the misfortune of encountering him on two separate child abuse cases. We’re sure DC Martin thinks very highly of him, too.
It also shows that Abe and Ella must have been on tenterhooks in early September 2014, and were already preparing to make a run for it.
The day after we posted the above recording, one of our volunteers was able to extract some blurry screenshots of Finbarr, captured as he was quickly putting his phone in his pocket following his interview with RD’s daughter.
Here they are: He looks like a middle-aged man, ruddy-skinned, with a white or grey beard and moustache.
Last night, sharp-eyed reader Jake Blake drew our attention to this video, featuring an Irishman named Finn Hagan:
Have a listen and judge for yourself whether the voices match up. Adjusting for the poor quality of the screenshots above, the face certainly does.
According to this blogger, Finn Hagan lives in London. He is an associate of the UK Column, and a devotee of David Icke.
We believe we’ve found our man…now, we’ll be looking into why he was at Abe and Ella’s that day. What was his role? It’s early days yet, but it’s possible that he was there as part of the planned social media blitz that Abe has referenced. We’ll bring you further details as we unearth them.
