Faye Yager Link to Marvin Maple Case - Get a Warrant

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported on July 16, 1990 about Faye Yager or Faye Yaegers link to the Marvin Maple and Sandra Maple kidnapping of the Baskin children. When a child is recovered in these underground cases, it is important for law enforcement to get a warrant to gather evidence on who helped or has been helping the abductor stay in hiding. That said, because the abductor Marvin Maple was arrested in San Jose and will be extradited to Tennessee for prosecution, it is unlikely Tennessee law enforcement will get a warrant for searching Marvin Maple's home to find his address book, computer records, phone bills, credit card receipts and bank records. Usually, the abductor will use phone cards so a limited number of phone records exist.

In 1992, Faye Yager was unsuccessfully prosecuted by a District Attorney in Georgia. We'll see if the Tennessee District Attorney will also seek charges and evidence against third party co-conspirators in 1989. Also, there should be an investigation into how Marvin Maple was able to create false identities and social security numbers for his adult children. This information could lead to the hope for more parents that are still searching for their children such as victim parents and the arrest of abducting mothers with ties to Faye Yager's Underground like: Elizabeth Stratton, Antioch, CA in December 1997, Dorothy Lee Barnett, April 1994 and Annette Rosenberg in October 1990. These cases are still open...

Here is the info on the link between Faye Yager's Children of the Underground and Marvin Maple.

Mrs. Baskin thinks activist Faye Yager played a part in her parents' flight and their earlier campaign to destroy the Baskins in court.

"There are records that my parents called Faye Yager two or three times in February [1989]," Mrs. Baskin said. Police confirmed the calls.

Mrs. Yager, whose Atlanta-based underground network hides allegedly abused children, was recently charged with kidnapping and cruelty to children for allegedly intimidating a child to lie about sexual abuse and satanism in an unrelated case. She has denied the allegation.

Mrs. Yager said she talked to the Maples "several different times" before they fled with the Baskin children, "but they are not a part of my underground," she said. "I gave them advice on what I'd do if they were my children. I told them step by step. If they've followed my direction, they've done a good job."

Mrs. Yager said she believes the Maples' allegations about the Baskins but said she has not talked to the elder couple since before their disappearance and does not know where they are.
