      • Judy Melander agreed to come and recommended that Mary Jane call her attorney,
        Pat Gallagher, who worked on probate and estate work. Mary Jane did call Gallagher who stayed on line with Mary Jane until Batzel, Reichstadt and the Krauses left. Judy Melander arrived within 20 minutes of Mary Jane’s call to her.
      • Batzel attempted to demand that Mary Jane sign over travelers checks and other documents to him. Mary Jane refused, telling Batzel “arrest me or get out of home”. Pat Gallagher, suggested that Mary Jane allow Batzel to take the checks, without prejudice, so that they would leave the house.

Judy observes that Jane Duchene is present and Jane is observed by Judy Melander walking disjointedly to and fro while the turmoil raged, in the living room; asking Judy to “take care of Mary Jane”.

1986, March 21 - Mary Jane Duchene contacts Dave Duchene, who is a nurse, and whose wife Janet, and mother in law, Louise Erickson, are also nurses, telling them what has happened and affirming previous plans that Dave and his wife would help Mary Jane to look after Jane, although the situation had escalated to a significant one fraught with legal, financial and medical complications.

health professional who would be able to help Mary Jane to understand her mother’s symptoms and clarify what tests and evaluations her mother should have to resolve both medical dangers and legal/financial catastrophe which seemed imminent.

1986, March 26 - Dr. B. William Murphy telephones Mary Jane Duchene after speaking with his wife and Gill Jackson. He says Jane’s "perseveration" and other symptoms suggest organic brain syndrome, possibly from spread of cancer;- he says that a complete battery of tests should be given; such as CAT scans and various mental status examinations and psychological and neurological tests.

Mary Jane, already traumatized and fearful, calls Pastor Ruhnke who became her mother’s pastor in the fall of 1985, to request he be present as a witness. Roger Krause is subdued from extreme hostility by the pastor’s presence. Jane Duchene is mainly typically quiet, but is inappropriately saying she wants her house and car back although she cannot look after the house or drive her car. Verified in all respects by the affidavits and testimony of Pastor Dennis Ruhnke, 1987 and 1988.

1986, March 28 - Meeting at Dennis Briguet’s office with his partner, William Lanoue and the Krauses:

  • Mary Jane Duchene is present with Pat Gallagher, attorney on her behalf.
  • Bessie is present and aggressive in making vicious and wild accusations against Mary Jane.
  • Roger Krause is present and says “Jane is feeling better now and is thinking of signing a will”.
  • Roger, Bessie and Lanoue are saying Jane wants her house back and she wants Mary Jane, who has her own home in London, England, and a hoe with her fiancé, in Copenhagen, Denmark, and who is the joint owner of the house in the USA: to leave so she can have it. This conduct is behavior uncharacteristic of Jane Duchene.

By the time Jane Duchene dies on November 19, 1986; Mary Jane Duchene incurred about $10,000.00 in legal fees and another $10,000.00 in telephone
charges for long distance calls to her attorney and others;- as there was no cooperation from the Krauses or Dr. Corbett regarding evaluation of Jane Duchene, until Roger Krause suddenly terminally ill with pancreatic cancer, which meant her would die before Jane Duchene, which made it impossible for him to continue to control Jane Duchene.

1986, April 1986 - Roger and Bessie Krause and others, place Jane Duchene in the Duchene family residence to live, alone without assistance. This is presumably done to validate claims of mental competence made at the 3/28/86 meeting with lawyers, that Jane Duchene wonted her house back, regardless of the dangers to Jane Duchene who could not take care of herself and her home, without help.

1986, April 23 - Jane Duchene placed in Wedgewood Healthcare Center, Inver Grove, Minnesota., Inver Grove Heights. Minnesota; near the residence of Dennis Briguet, by the Krauses, Ken Reichstadt, and Dennis Briguet. This facility is a nursing home.
