Sierra Vista, AZ — While many think that the state taking children from parents is a noble gesture to protect the child, all too often, the state removes kids from a bad situation and throws them into a situation akin to a horror film. A recent lawsuit against the state of Arizona proves this notion.

The lawsuit involves a 5-year-old girl whose stay in foster care ended with her being permanently disfigured and fighting for her life earlier this year because of her bureaucratic ‘protection’ within the system. The child, who is referred to as Jane Doe in the lawsuit, but whose real name is Devani, was taken from her parents because they had substance abuse issues.

Because her mother struggled with addiction, the state took Devani from her. Like mentioned before, they took her from a bad situation and threw her into a nightmare.

After having her child taken, Michelle Tremor-Calderon, the girl’s biological mother, began to improve her condition. With a clearer head, Tremor noticed that her daughter seemed to be deteriorating in the care of her state-appointed foster parent — David Frodsham.

“I did everything DCS wanted me to, and received certificates of completion, and was in full compliance when my rights were severed,” Tremor said.

After only a few weeks in the care of the Frodsham, multiple signs of abuse and neglect began to arise. However, no action was taken.


Tremor had pointed out, on multiple occasions, that her daughter had continued urinary-tract infections, which can sometimes indicate signs of repeated sexual abuse in children. Her concerns, however, fell on deaf bureaucratic ears.

“I told my CPS/DCS caseworker on several occasions due to my concerns, and they were all ignored,” Tremor said.

“Instead of investigating Jane Doe’s biological mother’s concerns of abuse, [DCS] and the defendant caseworkers accused her of making false and exaggerated reports to DCS,” the lawsuit states.

Despite jumping through all their hoops, the state refused to give back Tremor her daughter.

The longer she stayed away from her mom, the worst things got for little Devani.

Frodsham had been in the state’s foster program from 2002 until 2015 when he was removed after being caught DUI with children in his car — one of whom was Devani.

It was no ordinary DUI, however. This monster was so comfy with the statist system that was paying him to rape children that he went to the foster office drunk to get paid!

As the complaint notes, despite her mother’s repeated complaints, the state did not act on behalf of Devani until “David Frodsham, driving drunk, left 3-year-old Jane and another child in his parked car while he was collecting his foster parent check in a state office, while “visibly drunk and acting belligerent.”

Even after they found abused children in his car while drunk at the state office, the DCS did not conduct a review of his home. It took him getting arrested again — this time with another child rapist.

David Frodsham, the state’s choice for a better environment than her own mother, was arrested along with an active duty soldier for allegations of transferring child porn over the internet.

According to the lawsuit, “Later, David Frodsham was arrested and accused of sexual misconduct with a minor, procuring minors for sex, and possessing and/or manufacturing child pornography. Law enforcement’s investigation revealed a video made by David Frodsham of a 3- or 4-year-old girl being penetrated by an adult male and screaming for her mommy. David Frodsham pled guilty rather than face a trial and has been sentenced to 17 years in the Arizona Department of Corrections. David Frodsham was part of a pornography ring involving numerous children in his pornography and the procurement of sex for the ring.”

For more than a decade, this sicko likely preyed on children — all of whom were given to him by the State of Arizona.


Naturally, one would think, that once Tremor’s daughter was found to have been placed in a home and sexually abused because of the negligence of the state, they would give Devani back to her mom who had done everything they asked to improve her situation. However, one would be wrong.

Instead of reuniting this poor abused girl with her biological mother, she was placed into another horrifying nightmare.

Devani’s new state-appointed abuser was Samantha Osteraas. After staying with Osteraas for a few months, this little girl would be nearly killed.

According to the complaint, “Defendant Samantha Osteraas submerged and held down Jane Doe, a 5-year-old, in a bath of scalding hot water. Jane Doe suffered severe burns over 80 percent of her body. When police arrived, there was blood on the floor and pieces of Jane Doe’s skin were falling off her body. There were bruises to her neck and arms along with other signs of trauma.”

Devani was put into a medically induced coma, suffering from organ failure. She lost her toes to amputation “and will undergo lifelong operations to replace 80 percent of the skin on her body and will need incredible amounts of care for the duration of her life as a result of the abuse she suffered in the Osteraases’ home.”

No one within the agencies involved in placing this little girl in the ‘care’ of sick child abusers has been held accountable. The only means of accountability will come from this lawsuit which seeks punitive damages for negligence, respondeat superior, breach of duty, intentional infliction of emotional distress, assault and battery, and constitutional violations.

    I really have to wonder if all this is not some sort of intentional & seriously deep evil, masquerading as tragic ‘bad luck’ incompetence, as too many of these kinds of CPS-related horror stories have cropped up over the last three decades with a disturbing growing regularity….(too many weird rumors, seem to keep turning out to be true, after all)….

    Children are cash cows for CPS, which is why they’re so quick to confiscate them and slow to give them back.

    CPS = Child Predator Services

    No one should ever call CPS, not even “mandatory reporters”. More likely than not you’ll trigger the wholesale destruction of multiple young lives. Read your state’s mandatory reporter laws – you’ll find you have exceedingly wide latitude to use your best judgement. If you’re concerned about a kid, use some spine and some sense and figure out a constructive way to help. You and your circle of acquaintance will do a way better job than the state ever could. God made People to be His hands and feet. Man made government to shirk that duty.

    I put my money where my mouth is on this stuff. Our family has taken in strays and at-risk kids for 3 generations, including right now in my own house, despite it having been “full” already. 7 people living there now. No state involvement, just offering a safe place with food and a dry roof so people can escape real danger, until it’s passed or they’re able to move on to a better situation.

    Let’s make it a mission to keep kids out of the clutches of the real abusers – the state.

    Anyone who has sexually abused a child should be sentenced to death.

    I’m sorry to say I live in the sorry ass state of AZ, although not in this county. Arizona has also been #48 & #44 in education

    Jesus, that’s bad. The state is our worst enemy.

    I would so love to believe that these nightmarish stories were made up, but the reality is, this is just one of many. We need to keep focusing on this issue before it gets drowned out by “Russian Hacking” or some other media distraction. If we can be driven into wars by the “think of the children” narrative, like that of the Bush Senior regime’s incubator story or the more recent Assad chemical weapons false flag, we should be able to demand justice for children who are abused by our own governmental agencies. Those who have tried to expose the CPS’s crimes (see: Senator Nancy Schaefer) and fight against child trafficking networks (see: Steve Scalise) have been ignored, threatened, shot and even killed (suicided). As crazy as it may sound, I think there is truly a major satanic force at work here, and it infiltrates every level of government.

    and screaming for her mommy.”

    Please allow me to translate this mealy-mouthed mumbo jumbo to something a little more indicative of the reality. “After helping to steal a child from her parents (just following orders, ya know), cops had to throw one of the state’s pet pedos under the bus when a video surfaced showing the disgusting waste of skin raping a baby while she screamed for her mommy, while WE PAID HIM TO DO IT.”

    When you take a child away from it’s parents, you are responsible for whatever happens to the child. Claiming ‘not accountable’ means that you don’t give a XXX of that child.

    The neglect these children receive from foster homes is unbelievable, and it’s never considered the Children’s Service Division’s fault. They should be held accountable on all charges, fined and serving prison time. These children depended on their parents who weren’t available at the time, so the dependability was on the CSD, and they should be held accountable for all suffering and medical care needed. I have been close to this and have seen what can happen, and I am sick over it. All agents should be held in review on a weekly basis, and then have someone else do a check back on their clients.
