Over three weeks between August and September 2017, the first US family to host Rebecca Percy in their home, the Moncada’s, experienced a dramatic and traumatic event involving the alleged kidnapping of a best friend of Percy in Hull UK. The kidnapping was apparently the cliff hanger moment when Percy had demanded that Catherine Moncada abandon her family to follow Percy on some religious adventure into the unknown; and also was the moment Percy decided to abandon the Moncada family to live with a second US host family in Texas, the McAvenes.
Catherine Moncada describes the bizarre event of the kidnapping, and the highly traumatic impact it had on her family on her blog. Moncada says of the impact of the kidnapping:
“Faking a kidnapping which our entire household BELIEVED at the time. We REACTED as though there was a kidnapping. We believed it. How do y’all react to a kidnapping? It scares the crap out of you. We had an 8 year old child in our household, PLACED by social services. That child’s home and safety were endangered. All of us. We were terrified. My husband stayed at the house alone with the lights on, doors open and his service revolver (retired law enforcement), praying for someone to come through the door. This was real. To all of us.”Catherine Moncada (first US host family of Becki Percy)
Moncada describes the distress of another child in her household as a result of the alleged kidnapping:
“How can I say many families have been devastated by Rebecca? Assuredly my family. Multiple members. The underage youth Rebecca thinks nothing of was extremely hurt. And terrified.
I hope people can see and understand I had to have a sit down with this youth and explain kidnappings and HOW do you practice safety? We had to have a kidnapping safety meeting. After we believed there WAS a kidnapping. Can people get a true picture of the emotions? The emotional roller coaster?“Catherine Moncada
Apparently, the events of the kidnapping unfolded with Becki Percy claiming to have been contacted by her best friend in Hull UK. Initially, things seemed confused, as to who was kidnapped, and by whom. Moncada was then put in contact with the friend of Percy via Facebook.
The kidnapping was weird to say the least. Moncada says that after she was kidnapped, the best friend was tied to a table for two to three days, and made to watch child porn videos of Becki Percy as a child and other children being sexually abused on a constant loop, including a reference to child-animal sex. The best friend was kept in a room set up as a sort of shrine to Becki Percy with wall to ceiling photos of Becki Percy at different ages, including child porn images of her, which Moncada in her own words describes as “wicked” images. The family of Becki Percy were accused of being behind the kidnapping. The alleged kidnap victim was then released, and she made contact with Percy and Moncada. Catherine Moncada says of the kidnapping:
“According to this person, (she) there is a building she was taken to. Where there is a wall dedicated to Rebecca. An entire wall like a shrine type thing but the pictures are wicked, mostly, I guess. Top to bottom. Wicked pictures. Of Rebecca. Of varying ages was my understanding.
A collage. Floor to ceiling. It was described as a sort of shrine wall dedicated to wicked pictures of Rebecca and horrid situations. (My words).
Evidently there was no avoiding seeing this wall.”Catherine Moncada
Moncada further states:
“From what I was told she, the kidnapped victim, was secured to a table and made to watch pornographic videos of Rebecca. On a loop. Non stop. Like a torture.
As was related to me the videos were varying. Wicked. Certain people were identified in video.”Catherine Moncada
During the dramatic period of the alleged kidnapping, the Moncada family fled their home in fear for several weeks, leaving Mr Moncada at home armed against what they thought would be an impending attack on their home and family by the alleged Hull-based Satanic cult.
What struck Catherine Moncada as odd about the whole kidnapping situation was that the kidnapping seemed very focussed on the subject of Becki Percy. Even the alleged kidnap victim seemed more concerned about the suffering of Becki Percy than her own apparent recent trauma. Moncada says:
“They/she was not forthcoming with information. She was insistent she wanted to tell me, wanted me to know what happened but words failed her. It could take up to three days to receive this information she wanted me to have.
All of these horrific crimes yet no one can say “anal sex” or something similar.
The focus was always “what Rebecca went through”. She had seen it on video and it was horrific.
The direction of conversation was always back to Rebecca.”Catherine Moncada
Moncada makes the point that trauma victims usually have something to say about their own trauma rather than focussing all the attention on someone else:
“To interject here. While I’m having these ‘conversations’ I’m wondering where trauma for herself comes in.
If you are kidnapped and held against your will for two days, three nights, caused to watch these horrific, graphic videos on a loop, where does it come out? The conversation was always “what Rebecca went through.””Catherine Moncada
After the Moncada family and Percy returned home, the communications with the alleged kidnap victim took a more sinister turn, with pressure focussed on Catherine Moncada to focus all her attention upon Becki Percy and her needs, and to abandon her family to embark upon a sort of religious journey with Percy. The mother of the alleged kidnap victim added to the pressure by playing on the religious beliefs of Moncada. In some respects Moncada gave in to some of these manipulations by allowing Percy to sleep in her bed until she abandoned the Moncada family to live with the McAvenes in Texas. Moncada writes:
“By the time we returned to the house, Rebecca was sleeping with me. In my room. In my bed. The second party to these conversations from England was insistent Rebecca must go to my room. They told me they were sure my elderly husband wouldn’t mind sleeping in Rebecca’s room. I was NOT keen on the idea of having Rebecca in my room. I needed space. The 2nd party was insistent. She was telling me from England “You need to do this.” The End. (Check) I complied but I can tell you right here is literally where I stopped brushing my teeth.
I felt my personal space kept getting infringed and it was getting to me. I wasn’t unaware and it was a decided choice. (Dr. Danielle?)
Rebecca was in my bed until she left for Texas.”Catherine Moncada
Catherine Moncada is a deeply religious person, and the kidnapping story, the kidnapping victim and the kidnap victim’s mother had a regular religious tone to them:
“Reportedly this crime was reported to authorities. According to this accounting the authorities said “Oh, you had sex with a boyfriend and stayed away. Your religion is against it.”
There were a lot of religious connections.”Catherine Moncada
“There was an adamant push to have me leave my home and strike off with Rebecca. That’s why I said in the one blog. “These people (two) were prophesying over my life.” This insistence I leave my home. In Christian world, that’s a big deal. A Believer prophesying over your life.”Catherine Moncada
It was the strong attachment that Catherine Moncada had to her own family that finally snapped her out of the strange enchantment Percy, the alleged “kidnap” victim and their mother had over her. Moncada refused to abandon her own family. Moncada said:
“This contact and conversation was all after ‘the kidnapping’. And the focus was always Rebecca and how I could improve myself for her. To meet her needs.
As though I had no needs of my own. As though I had no other family. Everything was Rebecca.”Catherine Moncada
From day one it appears Becki Percy had been manipulating the Moncada family to fully focus on her needs:
“Rebecca came to our home and began the manipulation of the entire household the day she got there. Every day, every minute of the day needed to be about her.”Catherine Moncada
Catherine Moncada describes how her whole experience with Becki Percy, including the alleged kidnapping nearly broke her mind:
“Had Rebecca gone on to live her life and left me out? I would not be here. Nor published a blog. I originally wrote the blogs to HELP me disseminate what I was dealing with. It about broke my mind. My husband was worried. I made it through. It was not a good journey nor the outcome I wanted. If people think I wanted to admit I had been taken by this testimony of trafficking and satanic ritual abuse? Are you crazy? I mean really. Be reasonable and rational for a minute. I put three years of my FAMILY, resources and emotions into this testimony. Do you think this was anything less than devastating? Let me assure you. It was devastating. It about broke MY mind. Bigger and better people than me could possibly deal with this better than me. Possibly. Except it wasn’t someone else. It wasn’t YOU, the reader and I can only give a GLIMPSE of the reality and nothing of the emotional cost.“Catherine Moncada
Whilst Catherine Moncada was able to shake off the hold Becki Percy seems to have over people, others such as Wendy McAvene appear to have fallen to the manipulations. Wendy McAvene and the McAvene family were the second US family to host Percy; and Wendy McAvene threw away her marriage, home, job and family to strike out with Becki Percy; and is at the time of writing living with Percy in California USA. Moncada writes of Percy:
“A person can get an idea if they read all of the Becki Percy blogs I’ve written. The lies. The deceit. The manipulation. The other victims.“Catherine Moncada
It appears that despite the claims of the alleged kidnap victim contacting the Hull UK police, no crime reference or police officer dealing was provided. Kidnapping in the UK is a serious crime, that comes with a life jail sentence. It is unlikely that the police would reject a claim of kidnapping without firstly investigating it, which means they would have contacted Catherine Moncada and Becki Percy. In UK law, religious discrimination by the police is also unlikely to be a reason for rejecting a crime report, without serious comeback by UK politicians and the UK media.
Although surprising, considering the trouble the alleged kidnapping caused the Moncada family, there was no follow through by trying to contact their own or the UK police authorities. However, Moncada writes in her blog that she has more information about the kidnapping that she has not disclosed in her blog postings. It is likely that UK law enforcement will eventually investigate the various strands of the allegations and activities of Becki Percy, including the alleged kidnapping, and will at some point make contact with the Moncada family.
Of the alleged kidnapping victim and their mother, as if by magic, these individuals vanished into thin air. The Facebook account that the alleged kidnap victim used to contact Catherine Moncada has disappeared, and Moncada has been unable to track these people down. Like so much of the epic drama of Becki Percy, there are many smoke and mirrors; leaving only a trail of carnage and victims as testimony of her passing, as Percy moves from one victim to another on her quest for fame and attention.
