Clare Hesse is alive and she does not have cancer

“Clare” made famous in this article has apparently been identified and is alive and well and does not have cancer. A member of Model Mayhem looked at the Myspace page of Daniel Colegrove (cap) and found a tag by his daughter Topanga Diaz. On this page (cap) of her friends list, there is a user named *Pearl* (cap). That lead to profiles of Clarissa Cromwell on Myspace and Facebook. Here is a composite of Clare from Daniel’s site and Clarissa on the right.

Edit: December 16, 2010. I had originally hidden this post as the matter came to a close and I didn’t want Daniel Colegrove to get any more attention. But I just found out he is perpetrating more lies in the MyLesPaul.com forum so I’m reopening this posts to allow Google and other search engines to reindex this for the benefit of his future victims.

The real Clarissa sent this message to Shervin who originally made the connection.

Hi this is Clarissa, I logged onto my friends account. I did some of those modeling pictures for Daniel. He is one of my friends Dads whom I hardly speak to anymore. I’m clearly not dead and am not suffering from cancer.

** I am amazed at the investigative power of the Model Mayhem community despite the best efforts of the site to shut down discussion. ***

Clare vs Clarissa

Is Clarissa real?

Some are questioning if Clarissa is real. Consider these facts.

  • Public records show a Daniel Colegrove in Ventura County with a minor daughter named Tiffany Colegrove in 2004.
  • A 21 year old Tiffany Colegrove from Ventura has a Myspace page under the name Topanga Diaz with 326 friends.
  • Topanga Diaz has shot with Model Mayhem photographer Phooks Photography.
  • Clarissa is listed as a friend of Topanga Diaz and also has a Facebook page. She also shows up in a public records search.
  • There is a photobucket account belonging to Topanga Diaz with 284 images including some with Clarisss and some with Daniel Colegrove.

Don’t be an idiot.

    Lmao what a complete nut job, I wonder if posting under a profile that you made with someone else’ pictures misleading people to believe that it was that person would count as some form of harassment.

  • Samantha

    Ha! I Thought you took this all down because he’s an any press is good press kind of guy. I’m wondering if he’s still having one over on us though because a few things never really added up about all this.

    And now Daniel’s story becomes even more interesting and bizarre. Arrested and accused of child sexual abuse.

    • Maria G.

      If you understand the history and who all the players are it

      is not so bizarre.

      In 2003-‘04 during a divorce the step daughter chose to

      remain with the stepfather and made accusations and testified against her own

      mother, there were many troublesome and mysterious incidents all during this

      time. – The Step Daughter was never suspected.

      Some time in 2007 Clare Hess appears. The step Daughter’s

      relationship with the family becomes problematic and she is ejected from the
      Step

      Father’s home in 2008 several months later Clare becomes active eventually

      ending in this drama, which incidentally was brought to the attention of the

      Step Father by the Step Daughter. Even though, the Step Daughter had access to

      all the information and the ability to have orchestrated this. – The Step

      Daughter was never suspected.

      There were many other

      Odd incidents continued as the strained relationship between the Step Daughter
      and Step

      Father continued to disintegrate and there was some violent verbal exchange

      (in 2011?) that lead the Step Father to “Disown” her for a period time. – Right
      up until an arrest the Step Daughter was never suspected by the Step Father or
      the rest of the family of anything more than being a “pain”.

      The accused man’s 15 year old daughter takes up

      the story here: (search myexsisterisevil (dot) com – LIES, LIES AND MORE LIES. My Ex Sister Tiffany is a Liar and She Ruined My
      Life…

      It is important to note here as well that this now 24 year old woman’s Own
      Mother as well as EVERYONE that personally knows this man is convinced of his
      innocents and that this young woman has manufactured this as well many other
      stories and dramas for years now.
