The Killing of Roger Feltis Roils Vinalhaven, Maine

Ivy LaChapelle was hardly shocked when her 28-year-old son, Roger Feltis, moved from mainland Maine to Vinalhaven, a sparsely populated island of spruce-covered coves and hardened fishermen, accessible solely by ferry.

“He cherished the water,” she stated. “He had a automobile accident years in the past and was in a coma for some time. He was not even out of the hospital for 4 months and he was again out digging clams and being a sternman. That’s simply what he needed to do.”

The transfer was like turning a recent web page: He met a lady, Jennie Candage, landed a job as a sternman on a lobster boat with a boss who preferred him, and had a circle of associates. However not everybody amongst Vinalhaven’s tight-knit inhabitants of 1,200 was welcoming.

Candage believes that Dorian Ames, 28, had needed Feltis’ job, and a minor grudge simmered into “a variety of button pushing.” Feltis felt he was being harassed by frivolous calls to the cops, and Ames’ spouse, Briannah, posted baseless claims on Fb that he was a pedophile.

It got here to a head on June 14, 2020, after Feltis found the brake strains in his truck had been lower and, suspecting it was the Ameses, demanded Candage drive him to their home to confront them. (The Ameses later denied chopping his brake strains.)

The Ameses armed themselves with an ax and a fishing knife and, after a scuffle that lasted mere seconds, Feltis was bleeding out at the back of a automobile on his approach to the island’s medical heart. Lower than a 12 months after he arrived on Vinalhaven, he died from two giant gashes to his left shoulder.

The Ameses claimed self-defense and, three weeks later, a grand jury declined to indict them. However removed from that being the tip of it, the case has sparked a bitter upheaval on Vinalhaven, left a wealth of questions unanswered, and put Maine’s legal justice system beneath a harsh highlight.

“[What happened that night] has completely been lined up by the federal government… as self-defense,” alleged Amy Fairfield, a legal justice lawyer offering pro-bono help to Feltis’ household. “Roger did go to their home however that’s the place it ends. The state took that truth and extorted it, exploited it, manipulated it, and ran with it.”

With its candy-striped lighthouses and glistening shoreline, Maine seems to dwell as much as its official slogan of “Vacationland.” However its quaint picture belies a legal justice system caught in one other period, unbiased state Rep. Jeff Evangelos informed The Day by day Beast.

“Due to its idyllic picture, everybody thinks Maine is a peaceable, trendy place. However we’ve by no means had a severe felony exoneration. We’ve by no means had a police officer held accountable for a taking pictures, together with after they’ve gunned down unarmed individuals,” he stated.

“Whereas reforms are sweeping the nation, Maine is the definition of a police state. It has a systemic drawback on the subject of regulation enforcement that the persons are all the time improper and the authorities are all the time proper.”

Maybe it was the local weather in the summertime of 2020, when protests towards police brutality have been sweeping the nation after George Floyd’s demise, a homicide that was initially described by Minneapolis police in an innocuous statement as a “medical incident throughout police interplay.” Or maybe it was the Ameses’ repute as serial troublemakers. However Vinalhaven residents didn’t take Feltis’ demise mendacity down. They staged protests demanding “Justice for Roger” and even voted to stop paying for the island’s lone deputy, a place funded collectively by Vinalhaven residents and Knox County, the closest mainland county.

Minutes from a July 30 city assembly summed up residents’ frustrations. “Belief between the group and [Knox County Sheriff’s Office] is damaged,” the minutes famous, itemizing different points like sluggish response instances, complaints going unanswered, and the deputy’s unwillingness to dwell on the island and have a “pulse” on the group. “Respect has been misplaced,” it provides.

Tensions boiled over when Dorian, who had fled the island after Feltis’ demise, returned residence to gather some belongings and was met by 30 protesters. He was arrested for allegedly giving the crowd the finger, and police discovered he had an expandable baton, which violated his bail situations for a 2019 incident in which he got into a fight at a house party, threatened to kill a person, went residence to get a gun, then shot on the man’s automobile as a girl was inside. (That incident violated his parole from a 2015 incident wherein he slammed his girlfriend’s face right into a automobile dashboard, punched her and threatened to kill her. And that incident violated his bail situations from one other home assault, in keeping with courtroom information obtained by The Day by day Beast. Police ultimately dropped the disorderly conduct cost for allegedly giving the gang the finger.)

When a grand jury declined to indict anybody, the case was closed and a police account of the evening was finally released at the request of a local newspaper. The Maine State Police affidavit defined it within the following means:

Briannah Ames, 30, informed police she returned residence on June 14 from a weekend away to seek out their door kicked in. She reported it to the island’s deputy, Daniel Landers, through a personal Fb message at 8:41 p.m. and he got here round to take pictures. She then put her son to sleep on a sofa in the lounge and acquired within the bathe. Her husband then arrived residence and informed her there was somebody exterior in a RAV4-style automobile yelling about one thing, however he’d hit the automobile’s tail gentle with an ax they usually’d pushed off.

A short while later, as she was nonetheless within the bathe, she heard Dorian yelling at somebody to get out of the home, the affidavit stated. She messaged Landers on Fb at 9:37 p.m., asking him to return. “WHERE THE FUCK ARE U after I want u dude,” stated one. “THESE PEOPLE ARE HERE HELLLOOOO U SAID NOT TO LET DORIAN GET IN TROUBLE BUT UR NOT ANSWERING.”

She stated she got here out into the lounge bare and noticed Feltis inside difficult her husband, who was nonetheless holding the ax, to a combat. She stated she started to combat Feltis and, because the battle moved exterior to the porch, she grabbed a knife from the kitchen. In some unspecified time in the future, she realized her hand was badly lower. The subsequent factor she knew, Feltis was operating away. She didn’t know if Feltis had a weapon, and she or he didn’t know if it was her or her husband who lower Feltis, she informed police. Dorian gave largely the identical model of occasions, the affidavit stated, however denied ever swinging the ax or hitting Feltis with it.

The affidavit stated Candage informed police she’d been ingesting at an island bar with Feltis, who was “yelling” at her to take him to the Ameses’ home as a result of he was upset about his brake strains. From her automobile, she noticed Briannah come out of the home and begin preventing Roger on the porch. Dorian then got here out and swung his ax, hitting Roger. An post-mortem concluded Feltis died of blood loss from two incised wounds on his left shoulder.

What The Day by day Beast has discovered is that the case is considerably completely different, and much more complicated, than what the police affidavit described. A litany of alarming points has emerged: contradictory tales, witnesses whose statements have been by no means taken, uncommon messages between Briannah Ames and a minimum of two investigating officers, completely different opinions on the weapon that inflicted the deadly wounds, and a case file with unusual omissions.

In 2018, Landers took over from Knox County Sheriff’s Deputy Rob Potter because the island’s sole cop, whose beat covers Vinalhaven and the neighboring island of North Haven.

For 16 years, Potter stated, he had the simplest job in policing. He was even-handed and forthright, primarily “enjoying referee” between residents, seven days every week, when back-up is usually hours away.

“Not solely was I regulation enforcement, I used to be a pastor, a social employee. I used to be any person individuals trusted to go to for issues or simply to speak,” he informed The Day by day Beast. “My model of policing appeared to have labored on a hardcore fishing group the place something may occur at any time.”

However after taking day without work for a minor stroke, he stated, his superiors appeared to activate him for causes that also mystify him. He was repeatedly written up for minor paperwork points earlier than being dismissed—and his vice deputy, Landers, took over. (Knox County Sheriff Tim Carroll didn’t reply to The Day by day Beast’s requests for remark.)

“It appeared like he needed the title of Vinalhaven deputy however actually didn’t need something to do with it,” Potter stated, noting that Landers didn’t dwell on the island and would as a substitute journey by boat from North Haven. “I believe he meant nicely, deep down I believe he’s a pleasant man, however as soon as he acquired his toes moist, issues began to vary.”

Karen Doughty, a lifelong Vinalhaven resident and Candage’s mother, stated deputies usually assume the island is a simple gig however they want a selected ability set. It’s additionally a demanding job: Vinalhaven is barely Knox County’s 14th most populous district however ranks second for arrests. She described Landers as somebody who “needed to be associates with everybody,” and “thought he wouldn’t have a problem with anyone.”

Feltis had tried to talk to Landers about being harassed by the Ameses however, in keeping with texts he despatched a buddy that have been supplied to The Day by day Beast, Landers informed him he was busy, then informed him he couldn’t do a lot about it, then “present[ed] me photos of his canine.”

“Ought to Roger have gone to the home that evening? No,” Potter stated. “However I believe he was so pissed off with the shortage of assist he was getting, he determined to take it into his personal fingers.”

In a cellphone name with The Day by day Beast, Landers stated Feltis had no proof to incriminate the Ameses and his brake strains didn’t even look like lower. He defended his work on Vinalhaven, which he described as an “insular group” of largely associated individuals who don’t like outsiders and “have a tough time being policed.”

“Do you assume it’s an inexpensive response… to go get drunk and go discover that individual at their home to see in the event that they’ll combat you at 9 at evening after earlier kicking of their entrance door in search of them? Is {that a} affordable grownup response?” he stated. “I’m not saying that makes it utterly improper however I definitely can’t say I’d do it. And now you need the authorized system to justify it?”

Removed from giving largely the identical account of what occurred, the Ameses’ tales contradict one another, diverge on key particulars, and appear to morph as time goes on, in keeping with video footage, a filmed walkthrough with police, interviews with investigators, Fb posts, and an expletive-laden Fb Reside video they posted in an try to quell the island rumor mill.

The case file has by no means been launched and the household was solely in a position to view it on the Maine lawyer basic’s workplace in the event that they agreed verbally to not disclose something. Nonetheless, some individuals within the room recorded the six-hour viewing (Maine is one-party consent state) and The Day by day Beast obtained the audio, permitting police interviews and verbal readouts of proof to be reviewed.

The Ameses declined an interview with The Day by day Beast, saying by a lawyer that they have been “simply attempting to maneuver on with [their] lives.” Over Fb, Briannah added that she has “extreme PTSD from the evening roger stabbed me” and her household “misplaced every little thing,” like their rental residence. Any assist for Feltis was “only a large smoke display to masks all of the fucked up shit the island individuals did to us.”

Briannah’s first account of what occurred that evening got here through Landers’ bodycam when he arrived on the medical heart. There, he encountered Briannah with {a partially} severed left hand and a gash on her left thigh, and a gaggle of Feltis’ associates who had coincidentally crossed paths with him on the way in which to the Ameses and had adopted him as a result of, as they later stated, they have been cautious of the Ameses. The chums had witnessed many of the melee from their automobile and had rushed Feltis to the hospital after. Dorian and a buddy, Morgan Robinson, who occurred to drive by the Ameses’ home after the melee, had dropped off Briannah and left.

Within the footage performed throughout the proof listening to, Feltis’ associates might be heard yelling that Dorian killed him, whereas Briannah tells Landers, “I didn’t kill him!” She says Feltis “got here in my home and tried to stab me” and was “punching me within the fucking face.” Landers tells dispatch that the suspect, Dorian Ames, has fled in a silver station wagon and he tells Briannah “he’s gotta flip himself in instantly.” She responds, “For what? He didn’t do something, that was me and him.” Landers, sounding confused, asks who hit Roger, and she or he says she grabbed a knife. The digicam then switches off. (Landers informed The Day by day Beast he wasn’t certain why.)

In an interview at 1:15 a.m., summarized by an officer and skim aloud throughout the proof viewing, Briannah stated she got here out of the bathe to see Feltis “two toes away from their child on the sofa.” A combat started within the doorway and spilled onto the porch. She stated she grabbed the kitchen knife after Feltis stabbed her whereas she was attempting to drag his fingers off her head. Dorian, holding an ax, was attempting to “pull Roger off her,” she stated. She admitted she by no means noticed Feltis’ knife, theorizing it should have been “cupped in his hand.”

[Dorian] indicated that Briannah doesn’t take into consideration issues, she simply reacts.

— Police interview

Nonetheless, when Dorian was tracked down and interviewed at 1:30 a.m., he stated Feltis solely ever reached the doorway of the home. When he grabbed the ax, Feltis backed out onto the porch. He stated Briannah then charged out of the bathe and “went at Roger,” whereas yelling at Dorian that he was a “pussy” for not hitting Feltis with the ax. “[Dorian] indicated that Briannah doesn’t take into consideration issues, she simply reacts,” a police abstract of the interview stated.

At 11 a.m. the day after Feltis’ demise, Dorian did a video walkthrough with police, which was performed throughout the proof viewing. Once more, he stated Feltis was “standing there along with his foot within the door” and he retreated “two steps again out onto the porch” when Dorian brandished the ax.

As soon as on the porch, “Briannah approaches him proper right here, subsequent assume you already know, simply, they fucking stabbed one another,” Dorian stated. “I don’t know if Roger stabbed her first, I don’t know if she stabbed him first, all I do know is Briannah fucking circled, she was bleeding.” Curiously, he stated, “no one ever threw a punch.”

Under Maine law, an individual can use lethal power if he believes somebody is about to make use of lethal power towards him or a 3rd individual, is inside their home (not simply on their property) and about to inflict severe harm, or is about to commit against the law inside the home after defying an order to leave. Nonetheless, Maine has a “obligation to retreat” clause, which means lethal power is often unjustified when you can safely escape from the encounter.

“Roger by no means even made it inside the home to have the ability to commit against the law,” Fairfield stated. “And he by no means grew to become the aggressor after he retreated. Their self-defense declare is finished.”

Fairfield stated she seen crime scene pictures that confirmed no blood in the lounge or doorway, which calls into query Briannah’s declare that she was lower earlier than grabbing a knife from the kitchen. And police discovered no proof that Feltis had a weapon, elevating the query of how Briannah was wounded if Dorian, in his phrases, by no means swung an ax.

On June 16, Maine State Police Detective Jason Andrews, the lead investigator, interviewed the Ameses collectively. Dorian now insisted Feltis got here “inside the brink of the lounge and kitchen space” whereas Briannah stated he grabbed her hair and punched her head “subsequent to her son’s pink chair.”

Dorian maintained Feltis had a knife however he “instantly remembered [one of Feltis’ friends] Heidi arising on the porch after every little thing occurred,” the police abstract stated. “He thought it was odd. Whereas he didn’t see it, he now suspected Heidi was there to take the knife.” Briannah appeared much less sure. “After trying on the harm on her hand, Briannah expressed that it very nicely may… have occurred from Dorian swinging the ax,” Andrews wrote in case notes that have been learn out throughout the proof viewing.

Three weeks later, Briannah filmed a Fb Reside video of herself making use of make-up and hitting again on the “small-minded fucks” of Vinalhaven. Feltis was even additional inside the home “standing proper over the place my son was sleeping” when she exited the bathe, she stated.

“He grabbed me by the hair of the top, began dragging me out, punching me within the head, I went as much as defend myself and he rattling close to sliced my finger off,” she stated.

As Dorian got here beneath assault on Fb from residents, he wrote that Feltis had tried to run him over thrice in his driveway and was “threatening to kill us” when he entered the home—each new claims. He insisted Feltis’ knife had gone mysteriously lacking. “There’s no means he got here empty handed after attempting to run me over and me hitting his automobile with a hatchet,” he stated.

The weapon used to kill Feltis nonetheless vexes his household. In response to case notes learn out throughout the proof viewing, a paramedic and a health care provider who handled Feltis stated his wounds gave the impression to be attributable to an ax, however health worker Margaret Greenwald informed investigators two days after the killing that it was more than likely a knife. (Her post-mortem then didn’t specify a weapon. A spokesperson declined to elucidate the discrepancy.)

The scale and site of Feltis’ wounds elevate additional questions. Earlier jail information record Briannah’s peak as 5-foot-3 to Roger’s 5-foot-10, requiring her to succeed in significantly, and with unimaginable power, to make two cuts that have been so giant Candage may match her hand in them as she rushed him to the hospital.

“The state is attempting to stay to the truth that Briannah knifed Roger,” stated Rep. Evangelos, who stated Greenwald’s findings needs to be scrutinized as a result of she admitted getting a knife wound wrong in one other case and she or he admitted during a civil deposition that she oversaw a macabre, unethical scheme two decades ago in which her office sold brains without families’ consent. (The feds in the end discovered no criminality however a number of households settled civil fits.)

“Let’s face it, if the lawyer basic and prosecutors need to get an indictment, they will make it occur. However for some purpose they didn’t need to make it occur.”

Grand jury proceedings are one-sided shows by prosecutors, with out defendants or their attorneys current, therefore the well-known saying that prosecutors may indict a ham sandwich in the event that they needed to.

They’re extremely secretive so it’s inconceivable to know the way the Feltis case was offered. However Candage, who was known as to present proof, supplied one clue: She solely noticed one different individual arrive to testify, Detective Andrews. “Jennie was their key witness however she has a 30-second span the place she doesn’t even keep in mind what occurred that evening,” Doughty, her mother, stated. “Her mind shut down. They needed to give her Valium to settle down.”

Even Dorian’s lawyer was shocked when the grand jury issued two “no payments,” which means a majority of jurors didn’t discover sufficient proof of against the law. “I used to be shocked as a result of I’ve been doing this for 15, 16, 17 years, and I’ve by no means had a ‘no invoice’ for a consumer. Usually, in my expertise, it’s a rubber stamp,” Jeremy Pratt informed The Day by day Beast, although he added he thought it was a transparent case of justified self-defense.

Six of Feltis’ associates witnessed many of the altercation. 5 wrote their very own follow-up statements after talking with police; two wrote of their assertion that they needed to supply to present police an announcement initially, two wrote they have been in shock on the time they gave theirs, and one told a local newspaper that he felt police have been attempting to place phrases in his mouth.

In their very own statements, supplied to The Day by day Beast, they clarify they have been out for a drive after they bumped into Feltis and Candage shortly after Dorian had smashed the tail gentle. Feltis needed to return to inform Dorian to “cease fucking with me and go away me alone,” Isles Blackington stated. The chums adopted as a result of “we have been involved for his security there,” Heidi Guildford wrote.

All 5 stated that as they pulled in, they noticed and heard Feltis yelling at Dorian to return exterior. Three stated they solely ever noticed Feltis on the porch; two stated Feltis made it simply contained in the door earlier than backing up. All 5 stated they noticed Dorian come exterior brandishing an ax, and Feltis elevate his fingers whereas saying phrases to the impact, “Put the ax down and combat me like a person.”

All 5 stated they then noticed Briannah cost out of the home and assault Feltis, whereas yelling phrases to the impact, “Dorian, hit that bitch.” Candage ran in direction of the porch to get Feltis and one witness, Hannah Jo Moody, stated she noticed Feltis start to stroll in direction of her however he was pulled again into the scuffle. “Briannah then pushed Roger towards the home,” Guildford wrote. All 5 noticed Dorian swing the ax however none noticed it join with Feltis.

“[Dorian] tried to swing the ax at Roger in a means that he was attempting to succeed in round Briannah’s fingers that have been round Roger,” Moody wrote. Seconds later, Feltis stumbled off the porch and his associates pulled him into their automobile and sped off.

The Ameses’ neighbor, Devin Walker, stated in a recorded dialog with Fairfield that he walked out to his driveway when he heard the commotion and noticed the automobile rushing off. He stated he walked towards the Ameses property and noticed Dorian and a girl “cleansing stuff up,” and Dorian’s buddy Morgan “smashing out the home windows” of a pink RAV4. He stated he was by no means interviewed by police.

“I noticed him, doesn’t matter if it was darkish or not, I noticed him clear as day,” Walker stated. “My story wasn’t adequate, I assume.”

Fairfield described the six-hour proof viewing on the Legal professional Common’s Workplace as “unbelievable,” not only for what was there however what wasn’t. For causes which might be unclear, there have been no pictures of the ax and no lab outcomes from blood and different samples taken from the scene. She stated there was one tiny picture of the knife, and it had no blood on it. Audio recordsdata wouldn’t play and there was passing point out of an old-school answering machine retrieved from Robinson’s automobile, lined in reddish brown stains, that Robinson stated belonged to the Ameses—however there was no clarification for it.

The Maine State Police declined to reply The Day by day Beast’s questions as a result of the case is closed. In an announcement, Marc Malon, a spokesman for the lawyer basic’s workplace, stated the police “performed an intensive investigation” and the AG’s workplace “evaluated the case and acknowledged that the difficulty of self-defense can be generated.”

“Below Maine Regulation, when the difficulty of self-defense is generated by the protection, the State should disprove self-defense past an inexpensive doubt. As has been reported, the State offered the case to the Knox County Grand Jury and the grand jury no billed the case. No-bills will not be frequent however definitely have occurred in different circumstances.”

In a gathering with the household in November, that was recorded and supplied to The Day by day Beast, Detective Andrews and Assistant Legal professional Common Megan Elam reiterated the identical story: Roger was inside the home and was in the end killed by Briannah in self-defense. Witnesses’ follow-up statements solely had “minor variations” to their unique statements and truly strengthened the self protection case, Elam stated within the recording. “In truth, we now have two individuals who have been within the automobile who stated Roger went into the home,” she stated. ”That’s why we are saying Roger went into the home.”

In a single last slight, Candage hoped somebody may be charged for destroying her automobile however was informed no as a result of Dorian and Morgan had blamed one another.

Knox County District Legal professional Natasha Irving informed The Day by day Beast they didn’t assume they may show something past affordable doubt attributable to “conflicting witness statements.”

However the query lingers: If authorities tanked the case, as Fairfield and Feltis’ household consider, why? Would it not have been incompetence that was then lined as much as save face? Or wouldn’t it have been one thing extra?

Textual content messages and emails, a few of which have been supplied to The Day by day Beast and others that have been learn out throughout the proof viewing, solely elevate extra questions.

Twenty-four hours after Feltis was killed, Briannah once more messaged Landers on Fb.

“I’m nonetheless in shock,” she wrote. “However thank god I reported my door bein [sic] kicked in as a result of i often hesitate to name cops.”

Landers replied: “Like we stated, it labored out… and solely may have labored out higher if I had stayed one other 20 minutes.”

He informed The Day by day Beast his reply was doubtless an try to be empathetic, and he usually informed Vinalhaven residents to Fb him with considerations that didn’t warrant a 911 name. “Briannah in all probability messaged me 500 instances,” he stated, including that having an informal channel of communication was a part of group policing. “Is that a good suggestion? I don’t know. I’ve debated that fairly a bit.”

Briannah and Andrews had shared some e mail exchanges, too. In response to a verbal read-out of 1 dated June 20, every week after Feltis’ demise, she wished him a cheerful Father’s Day. “I’m at my mother’s attempting to relaxation and she or he’s acquired the child out swimming and having a very good time so you may have both cellphone to contact me. If I don’t hear again from you I hope you could have an exquisite Father’s Day and we’ll discuss Monday,” it stated.

One other e mail was learn out from the day Dorian was arrested for antagonizing protesters exterior his residence, two weeks earlier than the grand jury convened. “Dorian acquired arrested for giving the center finger, you gotta be fucking kidding me,” Briannah wrote. Andrews replied he “simply heard concerning the state of affairs” and confirmed Dorian was nonetheless in jail. Briannah stated he was “on bail for that silly gun shit, hopefully his lawyer will be capable of get him out tomorrow,” to which Andrews replied, “yep, I’ve a name into the DA’s workplace, I’ve a workers assembly.”

Briannah has an extended file of run-ins with the cops, together with a number of assault convictions and a conviction in a major heroin and cocaine trafficking bust, so it’s not a stretch to imagine she’d be acquainted with many cops. However Doughty insisted it was “not regular” for many Vinalhaven residents to message police on Fb and Briannah had a more in-depth relationship with regulation enforcement than most residents.

“I’ve by no means been a type of people who find themselves cautious of the police however I’m now,” she stated.

After Feltis’ demise, Landers left Vinalhaven for a army tour in Washington, D.C., the Ameses moved to the mainland, and residents ultimately agreed to pay for a brand new deputy. Calm could have returned to the spruce-covered coves, however the ache for Feltis’ household continues. Final month, they lastly notched a win when a choose ordered that the case file be made public by an as-yet unspecified date. Then, three days later, Dorian’s felony charges were dropped for the 2019 incident wherein he fired his gun right into a automobile and he pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor. Two witnesses had determined they couldn’t establish him because the offender.

LaChapelle, Feltis’ mother, stated she will’t cease preventing as a result of someday she’ll have to inform his daughter, Paige, what occurred to her dad.

“Roger was like Paige, an outdated soul with a very sturdy confidence. He was the lifetime of the get together,” she stated. “Some days I’m beginning to settle for he’s gone however Paige retains me preventing. And the truth that he deserved a lot extra.”
