Presumed Guilty 
The commission of a heinous crime violates the umbrella of public safety and makes people fearful. The horrific photographs in the newspaper, the reports on the television, and the spreading of rumors inflame our worse fears. Some crimes are so awful, we shudder. Who could have done such a terrible thing? Who is capable of this brutality and murder? We want revenge. We want the guilty caught and punished to the fullest extent of the law. People look to law enforcement to find the guilty parties and restore our sense of security. The police begin their investigation with a missing persons report. Search teams are formed and sent out. Blood hounds are enlisted to follow the scent. Interviews are conducted with those who saw the missing persons last. Traffic stops are made, neighborhood interviews are done... but the missing person is not found. Parents and relatives second guess themselves and their decisions.

Fraud Tip

Private Investigator Referral. Some private investigators advertise online, in telephone books, and elsewhere under the heading of Private Investigator Referral Service or something to that effect. Many of these supposed referral firms are simply private investigators with a second telephone line and a willingness to attract business through questionable means. In other cases these firms take your money then subcontract your case to the lowest and least competent bidder. Cadfael Investigative Group is a real business of professional investigators. Call us if you are in the market for the services of a professional investigator. If we cannot help you we will refer you to a professional investigator who can.


If you suspect fraud or are troubled by an offer, call us with the information. We can help you identify if it is a fraud. Remember, if something appears too good to be true, it usually is.
