Tom Brennan’s Craigslist Ad
Soon after the lawsuit was filed numerous attempts were made to serve Thomas Brennan with the wrongful death suit of his son Kyle. With each attempt, an individual residing at the home would lie to the serving sheriff. The false statements given to the officer was that “no one at the home knew of anyone by the name of Brennan, nor had anyone with that name ever reside there.”
I was the person doing the investigative work to locate Brennan. Each time the papers were returned, Attorney Ken Dandar would question the possibility that I had erred with my research. I would recheck my work but the results did not change-Brennan was residing at that address.
In April of 2009, Attorney Dandar received a misdirected email from Carrie Brennan Farrell the sister of Tom Brennan. The email provided a fair amount of amusement at the law office of Dandar & Dandar. The letter was written with the intent to discredit me by claiming that I expressed little concern for my son’s well-being. Farrell also errs in the time-line making it easy to discredit her as a witness. Farrell’s morally repugnant musings end with throwing her brother under the bus. We also garnered from the email that Tom Brennan was now residing in the San Diego area.
Brennan would not be served with the wrongful death papers until July of 2009. This was due to the discovery of a Craigslist ad that he placed while hiding in the San Diego area. Kyle’s older brother called the number listed in the ad knowing that he could identify the voice of his step-father. A positive voice identification was made on one solitary word “hello.” Brennan was served with the complaint when a hired private investigator contacted him and pretended that a room in his home needed to be painted. Entering the home he was shown a photo of himself and asked if he was the individual in the photo. It was told to Attorney Dandar that when Brennan was served with the papers the color drained from his face and he responded with” I thought you might find me.” Soon after Brennan was served with the complaint he returned to live at the address where they had claimed he never resided.

Deposition Excerpt of S. Brennan
Letter inadvertently sent to Attorney Kennan Dandar from Caryl Brennan Farrell.
* note the date of the email:
* note the date on the complaint
The depositions of Caryl Brennan Farrell and Cathleen were canceled by attorney’s representing the Church of Scientology one day before they were to occur. Their lies would go unchallenged.
For more information regarding the highly questionable events surrounding Kyle’s death, the highly mishandled police investigation, and the perjured testimony given by the defendants, please refer to “The Truth for Kyle Brennan” blog at https://thetruthforkylebrennan.com/.
Thank you! My heart is with you, as well as my continued support. I wish I could say I am tireless, as there is so much to to and keep up with that I have my days. I do hope you write a book about all this. Perhaps I could be of some assistance, like a reader for editorial perspective before it’s published. The whole story needs to be said in sequence in one place to get the whole impact of what has happened. I wish you the best. Keep up the fight fo Justice For Kyle!
Mary, you are a tireless advocate for truth and justice.You’ve given so much support and compassion over the years.It’s meant so very much to me. Thank you!
Sorry, but that was not clear from this article. Thanks for the update
Here is an excerpt from an email sent to me by Attorney Luke Lirot.The document is dated 9/8/2007. In the subject line: “Notes On my Meeting with Detective Bohling”
Detective Stephen Bohling at this point has interviewed Tom Brennan, maybe…three times.Due to the copious amount of lying we can’t be certain.We do know that the detective at this point has also engaged in conversations with Brennan’s attorney and wife.What’s important about this early statement is that Bohling is conveying the same information to Attorney Lirot as told to Kyle’s family–“Brennan took the medication from Kyle!” During the litigation the defendants and their attorney’s would spin a lie stating that Kyle gave his medication to Brennan.This is how they were able to slip out of the lawsuit being that the State of FLorida does not have a “Duty to Care”law.
When perjury is committed, it represent a serious abridgment of the legal system. These individuals deliberately lied to the court. They were not accidental or unknowing lies–they broke the law! The perjury committed by Cathleen Brennan made it’s way to the court of appeal and had a direct impact on the outcome of the case.These depraved aunties had a choice between right and wrong. They chose poorly!
Good to see all this documented, Victoria. Sad that people will lie and distort truth to protect loved ones, but this happens far more than we would like. When push comes to shove and people have to take the stand and swear… that’s where reality sets in. The CoS attorneys not calling Tom’s siblings as witnesses to be deposed says it all.
