My name is Derek Levy and I’ve been thrust into a terrible situation. Everything included in this story actually happened, and I have a great amount of evidence to prove 100% of its truth. Please feel free to check my Facebook page as far back as August 25th of 2017 to verify when things changed. On July 7th of 2017, my wife Angelique met former NFL player Willie Snead, III who is the father of current Baltimore Ravens Wide Receiver (formerly of the New Orleans Saints) Willie Snead, IV, on Facebook. She was doing credit repair and he joined one of the online groups where she was a member. She was thrilled to announce to the family that he was interested in learning from her, as his son was a member of our home team. My oldest son and I had watched his son closely over the preceding couple of seasons, and even became fans. My wife had recently become very well known online for her knowledge and skill set in the field of credit repair. So I was very pleased that now she had someone pretty high profile interested in learning from her. Little did I know that this was the beginning of the end of our 22 year marriage.
This man sought out and engaged in a sexual affair with my wife. He enticed her with promises of money, a fancy car, a big house for them to share here in New Orleans, and even leaving his wife for her. He got what he wanted from her sexually on August 2nd of 2017. On August 3rd, he began treating her like crap in texts, on FB messenger, and I imagine during phone calls. She had some sort of mental breakdown on August 5th, but was still participating in this sick game he was playing. I got wind of what was going on, because he waved at me on FB messenger in mid-July. But I didn’t realize at that time that he was taunting me, having already convinced her to start sexting with him. By August 22nd, it was all out in the open after I found the FB messenger conversations between them. I confronted her, and she apologized. Upon asking for an explanation, everything she described to me that happened was equivalent to a rape. I asked her what was wrong with her to fall for such a farce at 45 years old, and meet a complete stranger at a hotel. We watched this kind of thing all the time on the ID channel, and majority of the time it ends up fatal. She said that she wasn’t herself and needed professional help.
On August 25th, I demanded to know everything that was going on, and for her to remove the passwords she had on her phone and Facebook. We’d never had that between us before then. I gave her an ultimatum of giving me that, or I would e-mail his wife and let her know that her husband had raped my wife. Once I said that, she opted to take a bottle of pills in an attempt to end it all. I forced her to throw up and had our oldest son dial 9-1-1. She was transported to the hospital and held for 72 hours. While in there, she blamed me for everything. She was released on August 31st and returned home. She asked me to leave, but I responded that she should leave since I didn’t do anything. We have not reconciled since then and are currently going through a bitter divorce. I never sought any legal action about the “rape” because it became clear through her actions and things she said that it was just an affair, and that was all an excuse to clean up her part in it once caught. I’m well aware that it takes two to tango, and am under no delusion that she was forced to do anything against her will. However, the bait and switch persuasion played a heavy part to bringing us where we are now.
She left me in a horrible position with a large amount of debt, two of our children, and our three dogs. I wasn’t even aware of much of the debt she’d created, and will have to file more than a few identity theft claims. I’ve done everything I could to get back on track and stay afloat. It has all been too much. I had a car that was in both our names. She let her license expire, which also made the license plate on the car invalid. I was stopped going to work and the plate was taken. In order to get it back, she would’ve had to reinstate her license. Since we were no longer speaking at this point, I sent word through our oldest son that it needed to be done by December 8th, and how much it cost. We had been on a payment plan with the DMV since March of 2017, so I knew exactly how much she needed to have on her debit card, and made sure to tell them an amount greater than she needed. The officer had told me that her license and the plate would be suspended indefinitely if not done by that date. She went in on December 8th, but after being told by the DMV rep that saw her that there was no such thing as an indefinite suspension, she claimed she hadn’t put enough on her card and would come back one day the following week. A visit to the DMV can sometimes take an entire day, and this was the final day she could reconcile this problem, so there’s no way she didn’t at least have the $75 on her card that I said it would cost. I only said that because I knew it would be more than the $68 and some change needed. She wouldn’t have taken the chance of not having enough with her knowing that her driving privileges would be revoked at the end of that day. So that was only done to hurt me, and out of spite, more than likely because I eventually did contact Willie Snead, III’s wife and let her know about their affair; ruining whatever delusional chance my wife believed she had at gaining a stepson in the NFL. The choice to contact his wife was a risky one since these are people of power, prestige, and wealth, with friends in high places. I have been worried about my safety since doing it. So I have informed a few friends about everything that transpired, as well as sent out evidence to them; including the CBS anchor that was responsible for my family’s interviews during and after Hurricane Katrina, and is now the host of 48 Hours. I can only imagine that my wife thought causing me to lose the car would force me to have to quit my job and render me unable to pay rent at the house we’d shared. That would’ve meant having to move to Texas to live with my mom, and losing my three dogs, which she will not allow to live in her apartment.
Luckily, I was still able to get to and from work. But eventually I had to find a job that paid more and wasn’t as far away. But that job ended due to a reduction in force. Now I’ve fallen even further behind with my bills, one of my dogs (Sascha – Pomeranian)) has died due to my inability to be home and properly care for them. The remaining two (Journey – Shi Tzu and Seven – Labrador) are also in failing health and in dire need of veterinary care. Our three sons are at each other’s throats having chosen different sides. And our family is just a far cry from what it was just last year. July 4th of 2017 was about the last date of normalcy for my household. None of this should’ve ever happened; especially since my wife began all of this chaos just a few months after I’d buried my father. It’s also completely unfair for this man to have done this to my family when he has a wife of his own at home, and goes around preaching about GOD and good Christian values. My family is no more, while his continues life as they knew it.
I am asking for help only to catch up on my rent, which as of August 1st I am three months behind. I desperately need to get my dogs to the vet and if possible back to good health. I have to retain an attorney to deal with this divorce as it has gotten quite ugly. There are a few pressing debt matters that my wife created which need to be addressed asap. And if given enough, I will hopefully be able to find a cheap but reliable used car and get insurance. I want to personally thank all who even just took the time to read my story. Any prayers and well wishes will also be greatly appreciated. I’m not greedy, so as soon as I have enough to get back on my feet, I’ll be taking this crowd funding down. About $10,000 should set me well on my way to getting back to something that at least resembles my normal life. Attached please find pictures of my wife and me, us and our kids (they’re grown now) in happier times, and our three dogs before and present. There is no secondary picture of Sascha because she didn’t survive this madness. But I did include a picture of the bereavement card sent to me from the animal clinic where she died on May 20th of this year. Thank you.
