Shakeyra Kohler, What Can Be Told

03/24/2014 – Here is the latest update.  Click on this link:  Rehab to Idaho for Shakeyra Kohler & Kyle Kohlhoff

 

BAY CITY, MI – This article is a followup to a previous story that was written entitled: Woman Scams People In Bay City & Saginaw.  This is Shakeyra Kohler.  She is 22.  She is from Idaho Falls, Idaho.  Her life has gone sideways.  She is here in Shakeyra KohlerMichigan because of a guy who leads her astray and just plain is not good for her.  From all indications, he likes to get her out of her comfort zone of being near her family and friends.  She has two children.  The youngest was born in August.  First and foremost, the children are in foster care here in Michigan. Those concerned as to the kids welfare, they are fine and being taken care of by a pastor and his stay at home wife/mother.

A conversation took place with her mother this evening, 03/02/2014, by two people during two separate telephone calls.  There are aspects of the conversations that will be kept private because it is the right and ethical thing to do.

The first telephone call was placed at the request of MIHeadlines.com from a concerned mother to Shakeyra Kohler’s mother in Idaho.  Mom to Mom.  Shakeyra’s mother is engaged in the welfare of her daughter and her grandchildren. Shakeyra unfortunately has gotten herself in a major bind with DCFS, the courts, etc., here in Michigan because of the children and living conditions. Shakeyra has not did herself, her children or her plight any justice because she has not been truthful to those in authority, her family or the public.

From what Chalise, Shakeyra’s mother, stated – Shakeyra is staying with a guy by the name of Kyle.  Her boyfriend is currently incarcerated because of a drug charge.  The boyfriend is from the Tawas area.  Kyle must be the sketchy guy that we have all been hearing about that is around her. Chalise will be placing a telephone call to the caseworker tomorrow afternoon (03/03/2014).  She has promised that once she has further information, she will call to update us.  We will do our very best to keep all of you informed.

Between the two calls placed to Chalise, it was made very clear that her daughter is in danger being on the streets.  As we all know and have heard of time and time again, the streets can be unforgiving and very mean.  With Shakeyra having been seen in Flint, a city with a high rate of murder, trouble will find her eventually.  We want to do everything in our power to avoid that.  We want the best of outcomes.  It is reported that she has been seen in Bay City, Saginaw, Flint, Lansing, Mt. Pleasant, Midland, West Branch, Tawas City and Oscoda.  Reports continue to come in about the various towns that she has been in.  She will stand on various corners/intersections/store entrances in the towns or cities panhandling for money. Many cities, towns and villages in Michigan have ordinances prohibiting panhandling.  Check with your local jurisdiction to see if such laws exist.

Those who have been assisting her with cash, Please do not continue to do so.  You are enabling her.  Shakeyra has had problems with Heroin in the past.  Her mother and friends do not know if she currently is using again.  Word on the street needs to be spread that she is not to be given money.  It will force her to start making the right choices.  Please also know that her caseworker and the attorney working with her on her child custody case have been notified about the article on MIHeadlines.com and that Shakeyra continues on a path of destruction.  They too have been able to see the upset and anger from the communities that Shakeyra has duped.

As a concerned people, we must now find a way to lift Shakeyra up and out of these issues.  We cannot enable her.  In many ways, its the Tough Love that she so needs right now.

It is not wrong to be upset and angry with Shakeyra but as a community we need to rise above and past that now that we have a much clearer picture of what is really going on.

Shakeyra, if you by chance happen to read this article, there are hundreds, if not thousands of people, who want you to do the right things in life.  We know that you have access to the internet because  you have posted comments previously.  No man is worth all of this heart ache and drama.  Call your mother immediately.  She is worried for your safety.  And also get in touch with Matthew.

If you have information that might be beneficial for others to know pertaining to this article or another tip, you can email that information to tips@miheadlines.com.

03/05/2014 12:30PM This video was just sent in from Friday 2/28 @ 11am 675/tittabawassee off ramp of Shakeyra Kohler being talked to by police.

  • 03/05/2014 10:42AM  We received two separate messages this morning that the boyfriend was released from jail yesterday.

03/05/2014 12:47AM This just happened in the area where Shakeyra has been hanging out: Stabbing Occurs at McDonald’s in Saginaw http://bit.ly/1opfS8B

  1. I was sitting here thinking I understand us as a community trying to help her. But if this was my daughter I would be on the way here to get her off the streets. It sounds like there is a lot of people that would help the family as in giving them a place to stay. People can say things but are they really going to help this girl. Yes I think DeeAnn and Brian will but she doesn't have any ties to these people. I just think she needs to see that her family would move the heavens and earth to help her and see them face to face.

  2. Julia Beaver I am so sorry about your friend. My dear, from what you just posted here, you have gained many people who are on your side and cheering you on in sobriety. I will be the first to put on a cheerleader skirt and grab the biggest pom poms I can find to keep you going down a road you and everyone around you can be so proud of.

    If you need shoulders to stand on, WE ARE HERE !!

  3. Thanks virginia I appreciate it I didn't know her very well but I defiantly had a soft spot for her it just shows what a monster addiction is and is a real eye opener for myself and hopefully others still struggling. Just like shakyeara she does have a problem and yes addiction can bring u to ur all time low but its what u do about it that counts. She needs to make an effort and actually try to fight the battle rather than taking advantage of people with kind hearts. With all the money she has made she could have bought a house for her and her kids and got a car and means to get a real job and be a member of society rather than sponging off it.

  4. Audrey palazollo I probably speelled the last name wrong but we were in rehab together she was my roomate we got really close in the short time we knew eachother she passed away last week. She was an amazing beautiful girl.

  5. Shakeyra… What happened?!
    Three years ago we were sitting in our English class together talking about how we were going to be the worlds best mothers…
    Your friends and family are trying to help. Let them.
    Don't be afraid of the people who have always been here for you.
    Snap out of it, get your babies back!
    If you need anything let me know! Don't be prideful.
    And tell whatever guy is leading you astray to find someone else's life to ruin.
    You don't need a man shakeyra, especially not one whose only hurting your future.
    I hope your safe shakeyra.. I know this isn't where you want to be, what's a life living on the streets and without your kids?
    That's not a life at all.
    And if your worried about money and making a living let me know. You don't have to be a millionaire to get by.
    Your family is crying to let them help you, let them.

  6. Just saw her at Walmart, found some luggage out back with heroin needles and dirty spoons in it. Thought it was trash. Then she walked up and asked me for a smoke. I declined.

  7. I know and I don't want my sister to end up dead. She is a very hard headed person. She needs to honestly just grow up an accept the fact that she does need help and she isnt just hurting herself.

  8. Appreciate this coming forward honey!! Saginaw is no place to mess with…read the local paper online and you will see it daily!

  9. Melanie Moore..if you and Matthew Sessions feel the desire to road trip…my door is open to you. I am offering that up. Just know that.

  10. Listen to what is being said here Shakeyra!! Not only are you hurting the ones that love you and that you yourself love. You are totally jeopardizing and denying your children their own flesh and blood…You as their own mother and your mother and sister..Grandma and Aunt. Do the right thing from here on in! Take what is being offered to you…including the support! I have to honestly say…what Brian L. Thompson has started here with his original article and the new one with updates…Does anyone realize we are doing one helluva intervention attempt. Take it Shakeyra!!!

  11. And at this point..if she fails to show Wed at 1pm, a warrant will most likely be issued. If and a big IF..she were to ever have a chance at getting her kids back…it will be a very,,,very long time. Brian has had photos send to him pre and post phone calls with her. she did not tell him the whole truth but photos with time stamps do not lie. She also pretty much told me the exact same thing. If she fails to show and a warrant is issued…she is on the streets..will not take long for her to be found due to the warrant…just saying..

  12. Shakeyra I hope to God that you are reading these! Note, I have kept my mouth shut long enough! You of all people know that I have a big mouth and I think its about time I say something. You really need to pull your head outta your ass! You are being so freaken selfish! These people are trying to help you to get you set straight and get your kids back! Do you not care if you don't get your kids back??? Because that I exactly how you are acting right now. Your kids are going to grow up thinking their mother doesnt give a flying fuck about them! They are going to ask many questions why you aren't you around Shakeyra. People are not going to lie to them, they are going to tell them the truth. What are they going to think then?
    So seriously you need to stop thinking about yourself and and money, and start thinking about your kids that are growing up without their mother AND father! Shut up and listen to the people that are actually trying to help because if you keep being a bitch and ignoring everything they do and say, they are going to stop and you're going to shit outta luck.
    So I hope and pray that you grow up and do it for you kids.

  13. I saw her Friday, on my way into Bay City begging for money. I actually thought about getting her a gift card. I'm glad I didn't!

  14. Why's it so hard to understand she doesn't want help? Unless what you offer her is in the form of cash or drugs, she doesn't want it. There's a point where you can't do any more to help a junkie. You just have to face the sad realization that there's only person that can help them is themselves.

  15. I emailed her via facebook earlier this morning and offered help…I cannot give her money but I can certainly help with a roof over her head,food in her stomach and rides to and from substance abuse treatment….

  16. There is so many people out there begging for money I'm not saying some but very few are asking for food or work people are feeling as if they need to help them because since 9 11 and the pay it forward has motivated people but what most people don't understand is MOST of them are only looking for there next fix sit in as parking lot and sit back and watch most of them have cars nice at that they park away from where they are standing they will lie beg steal do anything that is necessary for there next fix its sad not to be able to help those who really need it but people there is food banks shelters etc so if they really need the help they can turn to those places if you go up to the ones who claim to be vets they have NO knowledge of what a discharge paper is really called so BEWARE we all can use money in this day and she but I have seen first hand ALOT of them are looking for money for there next fix be it heroin crack whatever lok the people in the eye before you give them your money look at there faces is there sires look at there hands is there marks they even use makeup to hide the marks people need to really take a real look before they judge if they really need it to survive life or to survive to get there next fix

  17. Shakeyra pull your head out of your ass and get ur shit together do you not care that you are hurting the ones you love do you not care that these actions you are doing is not helping you get your kids back the judge the case worker everyone sees these and it is not going to help your case you piss off enough people you may,end up dead iblove you shakeyra i dont want to wake up to,find you dead not me matt your mom or Cherokee do other wise i might just show up were your at andbtry to,help you get some sience

  18. 4 March, 2014 @ 7:26:30** Direct Message to Shakeyra: I generally would not post this type of comment but after seeing my inbox this morning, I am more than annoyed. Shakeyra, you and I had a lengthy conversation last night. I have your locations as of yesterday at varying times. Not just one or two messages either. SEVERAL. I also have photos that were sent in with those reports. Based on the emails and photos, you are by no means afraid to walk out your door for fear of someone else as you so told me in your lies and crying. Telling lies to me, your mother and others will only bring more problems to you.

    My next step will be to write another article about you but it would not be as kind as this one is. It would be more of a poster board type of article publishing those photos showing that you are definitely on the streets begging for money. People are watching and they are sending me information. You better be on the steps of Sacred Heart as court ordered tomorrow 03/05/2014. You have ran out of excuses and your lies wont cut it. You told both myself and DeeAnne last night that you did not know how you were going to get there because you do not have a ride. If you need a ride, we will find one for you. Let's get real here ! If there is a will, there is definite way !! You are 2 hours away from that facility being in Bay City.

    I know your reading the comments because you have told me you are. Do not tip my hand. ***

  19. They can only take peoples hard earned money if the people offer it. I think that if people choose to hand over their money, that's fine. What I don't like is when they then complain about it. The original story talks about a lady who handed over $80. That's pretty generous. But she shouldn't be upset when she found out things may not be as the girl presented them. My guess is also that the people who are giving these folks money are the ones also donating to our organizations. While I don't think handing over $80 to a stranger is the best idea, I think she must has a good heart to want to help someone. But don't complain about it afterwards!.

  20. Perhaps you can share stories about the other panhandlers here in town that are taking the communities hard earned money. With homeless shelters, soup kitchens, food pantries and numerous helping agencies, nobody should legitimately be on the street corner begging for a part of my paycheck. If you went to give, then give to one of the many nonprofit helping agencies here in town

  21. Cherrokee Grant Your friend is dealing with the devil and demons. I wont go into further details. I have spoken with her this evening along with talking to her mother. DeeAnne Muz has also spoken to both this evening as well.

  22. Well, if she is at her lowest point lost her kids and homeless. Yet still clean I want to know her secret. She will be a billionaire!! She has addiction figured out.

  23. I would love to say 100 percent shes not on dope.. but the hope i do have for her is.. if shes running from drug court.. then why is she not in jail if she has been ticketed for this, then why is she not in jail?

  24. Danielle Naomi Kocsis She is not lost. She evidently is in Bay City. However, she needs to understand the pressure is now on her to do the right thing.

  25. Cherrokee you are in complete denial!! You and the rest of her friends are enablers. Herion is the f-ing devil. It completely changes people. She is in no way the same person you knew. She is screwing people over. It's only a matter of time before she does it to the wrong person.

  26. Im just praying she is found and finally gets the help she so desperately needs. This is serious and I hope something comes along and gets better for her. Maybe she will get the help she needs.

  27. as a parent I feel sad for on this n hope she will contact her mom or that matt person on the streets is wrong but young ppl now a days don't understand but one day will wake up n smell the coffee and say wished I would of listen o my parents

  28. Danielle Naomi Kocsis I have information about the situation but because I do my very best to hold myself and the articles that I write on here to a higher standard, I dont publish everything because it would not be right or ethical. It is obvious that she has problems or demons that she is having to deal with. We all do. There is no one on this earth that their life is completely carefree.

    The hope and goal here is to see that she gets the help that she needs. We want her off the streets where she is safe. There are too many people out there that have no regard for others. Flat out, they will hurt you for their own personal gain or satisfaction. Anytime she puts herself out on a corner with a sign, she is at great risk of being snatched up. No one wants that.

  29. As one of her life long friends i would like to believe shes not using and if she is I hope something brings her out of it. However; I do know if she is using she would be in jail…

  30. Wow so many know how this woman should live and how to fix her life and if not they have the cops and FIA or dhs on speed dial….oh yeah and everybody wants to b kept up to date on a social networking site! Man she's gonna need therapy for years to get the feeling out her head that she's been stalked by an entire community. I'm almost positive most of those on here have had a family member with a drug problem or that has went to jail and I know everybody has told a lie or 2 and yet how do u think everyone on here would act if it were their family member that everyone was talking about and turning in to the cops or dhs and what if everytime one of ur family member or u ever got caught on a possession charge everybody decided that cps should b contacted and the cops everytime u or ur family members made a move and then someone posted it so the world could leave a comment! I'm not saying what she did was right and if she has a drug problem then she needs a facility that can help her because addiction is a disease and should b treated as such and it would b more effective then just getting her into more and more legal trouble compounding the bad instead of giving her a light at the end of the tunnel! I'm sure I'll have a ton of people jumping on my back for not getting on the band wagon of hate and community stalking but I know I'm the last person that should b pointing a finger at someone and unless someone on here is perfect then they shouldn't judge either….I'm certain she's gonna pay a terrible price already for everything she has done so I guess I just don't see the need to keep everybody informed on her personal business especially once they catch up with her cause then she won't b asking for money ( as if that's the very worst we've ever heard considering Facebook and the news is filled with horrible scary stories that make this look juvenile at best) but once again this is just my opinion not that it means much but I just hope she finds the help she needs and the good lord looks out for her and shows her the way!!! I hope everybody stays warm tonight considering the temps and I hope she has at least a warm place to rest her head!!!

  31. No Dawn. She doesn't need bashing. But at the same time, you or no fb post can. This decision has to be made on her own. It's unlikely to happen, but I wish her the best…

  32. Sorry Cherrokee, Kristina is completely right. I am in recovery and you have to want it. I'm all about helping people. But, you can't help people who don't want it. I will put money she is on dope again. She will say or do anything to get more. I will just pray for her.

  33. I hope for her sake she gets the help she needs. Everyone who wants to help her, you truely have such an amazing heart even after you've felt betrayed by being scammed. Really, that's so amazing. I want nothing but the best for her. I do know from past experience, you can not help someone who doesn't want to help themselves. So hopefully her family can reach out to her and get her to do what she needs to do before she becomes a statistic..

  34. Kristina.. shakeyra is in a very hard spot in her life.. she needs people who care to be around her I assure you she does want help she doesnt know where to turn

  35. Thank you to all the moms, especially DeeAnn Muz, for seeing their own children in the eyes of this girl, and feeling the heartbreak for her & her mother.

  36. Hi Matthew, I had tried to send you a message on facebook but it said it was sent to your "other" box. Thank you for being her friend. I was trying to find her mom also. I'm so happy her family is now involved. I have been worried for her. People lack compassion these days and even if her decisions have not been stellar, she is a victim of negative influences and is worthy of a second chance.

  37. It's obvious this woman needs help. Giving her cash is enabling her. She needs to find a place to live, and I'm sure the shelter would take her in if she were gently prodded in that direction. She'll never see her kids again unless she does the right thing. If I ever happen to come across her, I will definitely tell her what she should do. No cash from me. Enabling drug addicts only makes things worse.

  38. Omg. This is not at all a surprise. She used to literally beg myself and people I know for all kinds of things… from, money, food, clothes, my psych meds, (which I never gave her) I've actually been there when a man gave her like$60 and she still stood there for more money. I didn't stand with her.I'd walk by her on my way home.. she needs some serious help. I haven't seen her lately… but I'll keep an eye on the corners…

  39. yeah but she needs help…we should all feel sorry for her. Please The only way I would help this child abuser is to buy her a ticket out of town. There are too many nice people in Bay City and Saginaw. You can go read her FB and see what she thinks about the people in Mi helping her. She is Disgusting.

  40. Hopefull she reads this and knows there are people who care and can get the help she needs to turn her life around. There's a mother who needs her daughter and children who need their mother. Please make a effort. You have so much to live for. The sounds of your children laughing,their hugs,first words,school functions,graduations,weddings and even your own grandchildren some day. Which is pretty awesome I might add. Good luck to you and hope you find your way back:-)

  41. There is places that will help you with drug addiction if you don't have insurance. I don't have insurance and I've been funded to go to sacred heart inpatient treatment twice and am also being funded for outpatient since may last year. She gives the food and other things people give her she doesn't care about she left all her groceries in a vehicle I was in one day and said she hated when people gave her food and stuff because she'd rather have the money for dope.

  42. nobody can help her unless SHE wants to be helped.. and it's apparent that she doesn't.

  43. The drug problem in bay is troubling there is no place to go for help if u dont have insurance you dont get help im from the southwest Detroit and I have never seen a city that just dont care

  44. Heroin is a epidemic from west to east and north to south the whole world has issue with this drug .. The users are lucky to just get the needle out of their arm there self and feel the high from it !! Usually the funeral director takes it out before hes putting them in the body bag, cause its not just Heroin in it the dealers are cutting it with who knows what but its killing our loved ones. So Shakerya honey if this is what your doing, the high is not worth to take a chance on your life, your children , family and friends need you in their life as well as you need them.. Three things honey you definitely need in life to carry you through, God, family and love, So give home a call and get life back on tract one step at a time, you have a whole world standing behind you, be strong and step forward!

  45. I was approached by her in the parking lot of Walgreen's on the corner or Shattuck and Bay road in Saginaw Township last Tuesday (2/24/14) around 3pm. She was wearing bright pink pajama pants and a tan light coat, definitely not heavy enough for the weather. I didn't give her anything because she reeked of booze and weed. On my way out of the store she was trying to get money from cars waiting for the light on Bay Rd. Someone pissed her off and she started swearing, giving cars the finger and then started throwing snow balls and ice chunks into traffic. She then ran off, heading south on Bay road.

  46. Don't make excuses for her. Why should I feel bad for this con artist. She put herself in this position, and then preys on the kindness of others.

  47. I can only assume but it sounds like she may be using again. Heroin is an awful drug to be addicted to. It is like a sink hole that just keeps sucking you in deeper and deeper. Shakerya I am not putting you down. I know many people who are addicted to this devil drug and some are doing better than others. Just remember them babies need their mother. You need to take their hands and walk with them and not the devil's hand. I hope the best for you and your children. Remember there is help out there! Our community needs to be aware that Heroin is an epidemic in Bay County. Heroin is not only killing the user but also the families.

  48. Guilty of jumping on the bandwagon ! What she needs is people with God and his purpose in their hearts ! Has she " DUPED " people? Ys, But name one person under the influence of drugs who hasn't . More than anything she is in danger and with the low self esteem that comes with drug use, Losing your children and no place to live in this dangerous winter, She will indeed find trouble. The wolves are everywhere ! She is first and foremost a human, a daughter, a mother and one of God's children. Hey Bay City let's show some class and compassion and do the right thing , Instead of a hand out, Let's give this young lady a hand up !

  49. What a great article and so thrilled that there are people willing to help. I know from experience that it is so very hard not to give people money when they are in need, even though we know that they may use it for the wrong things. We always hope that they are changing for the better. I hope that everyone reads this article and follows the plea made therein. Do not give her money because it is the worst thing we can do. Thank you so much for those involved in getting the word out. I pray that she will get the help she needs

  50. Dee ann thank you from the bottem of my heart her mom tryed to reach out to Clair but had no luck im glad someone reached back out to her thank you all u have no idea how much this all means to all,of us who love her truly and want whats best

  51. Stephanie Evans The family of this girl is asking that we spread the word about her. Since she is in the great metro area of Flint/Detroit, word needs to hit the street to not help her with money. Family suspects she could be using drugs again. Please share this information with those that you know. Trying to save a life here

  52. DeeAnne Muz Thank you DeAnne for doing what so many of us wish we could have done. So glad to hear the babies are safe. Now maybe Shakeyra can get the keep she obviously needs before it is too late.

  53. No thanks needed really ….I'm a mother and a grandmother. Gotta take care of them kids ya know!

  54. A HUGE Thank You goes out to DeeAnne Muz for making the telephone call Mom to Mom. I know that helped a great deal with helping this girls mother understand the perils that we are all so concerned about.

  55. I'm very glad this article has been written. This is exactly what I have been saying and the message I was trying to get across. She is not a bad person and the threats and abuse she has taken was unjust. She made mistakes, as everyone does. She is in a very hard place right now. She needs the community to lift her up and get involved in more ways then just money, food, water. She needs compassion, she needs love, she needs inspiration and uplifting!! Thank you for writing this and getting TRUTH out there instead of lies and hear say about random things.

  56. It was not my story to tell and shakeyra has family and friends who care very much about her and her mother has always been involved weither or not shakeyra lkes it we all live her and want her to do what is right. God bless those of you who have offered her more then cash thank you to the kind hearted and understanding people
