Former 'A Forever Recovery' Employee Arrested after Daytime Burglary in Valparaiso, Indiana

Dopiest burglar ever? Steals flatscreen TVs, but leaves behind $$$$ and 2.5 pounds of pot

Michael Daunora, last seen flexing his pecs in my July 20 post, Straight Outta Valparaiso, was arrested on October 17 in his hometown of Valparaiso, Indiana after a "daring" (police lingo for "absolutely stupid") daytime burglary at a drug dealer's home. 

It looks to your girl Miss Fortune that Per Wickstrom may want to revisit his HR policies and limit new hires to those who can count their sobriety in years...not minutes.  

And although Wickstrom claimed in a June 17 Wright Township Planning Commission meeting that "graduates of the rehab program must return to their community and remain sober for 90 days before they can apply to BDR for employment", that so-called "restriction" apparently doesn't apply to AFR and this clown. 

In addition, Wickstrom also asserted during the same meeting that while there could possibly be residents who are there in lieu of jail time "BDR does not knowingly accept court-ordered residents or sex offenders".

Michael Daunora's case appears to show those statements by Wickstrom were false and misleading.

According to his official Porter County Superior Court records, Daunora's March 28 sentencing order for a case that included possession of a controlled substance without a prescription (generic Xanax) stated he would be allowed to "travel to inpatient treatment". While in jail, Daunora completed a chemical dependency and addiction program offered to Porter County jail inmates by Valparaiso-based Porter Starke Services. 

On April 4, Daunora's travel permit was granted, and shortly after he entered A Forever Recovery in Battle Creek for inpatient treatment.

In May, Daunora's probation was officially transferred to Michigan. 

And on June 20, Daunora updated his Facebook page to reflect his status as an employee of A Forever Recovery.

I'm not a math major, but I don't count 90 days between April 4 and June 20, even though Daunora was likely at A Forever Recovery the entire time.

Did Daunora "remain sober for 90 days" before he began working at A Forever Recovery? The evidence I've uncovered in Daunora's official Porter County Superior Court records says no.

Now back to the crime...

Police were dispatched to a burglary in progress at 858 West Street in Valparaiso when Joshua Scott, the home’s owner, arrived shortly after 1 p.m. to find a woman sitting in a vehicle in his driveway. After a short conversation with the woman, Scott went inside and discovered his home had been burglarized.

Scott called police, who after arriving on scene, found two flat screen televisions in the backyard.
As police processed the burglary scene, they found drug paraphernalia and noticed “a strong odor of marijuana”, according to police reports. A search warrant was obtained and officers discovered over 2.5 pounds of marijuana in a plastic bucket and approximately $10,000 cash in a drawer.

Don't know about you, but Miss Fortune smells a Febreeze line extension in the works--"Ill-Gotten Gain"--to cover up the odor of dirty money!

The officers located Daunora and his alleged accomplice, Travis Talley. Both were arrested and charged with Burglary (B-Felony) and are currently being held at the Porter County Jail. Talley was further charged with possession of marijuana.

Joshua Scott was arrested on charges of Dealing Marijuana (D-Felony), Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (A-Misd) and Maintaining a Common Nuisance (D-Felony).

No more limo days for you, Daunora!

By the way, here are the comments my July 20 story elicited. Nice to see how prescient your girl Miss Fortune actually was! 

How yah like me now?


  1. Was it hard to copy & paste a police report off a website? Based on your other "blogs", you seem to be real good at getting on Google & looking someone up, taking exact articles & posting them as your own. Your fucking with Copyright laws as far as posting pictures of someone without their permission. Maybe you should rethink your "blogging" hobby.
    Your really going to try and pick apart A Forever Recovery, their program, employees and past/present clients? A lot of their employees are former addicts and past clients. Would you believe or trust something that someone says to you unless they have experienced it directly?
    All women, this includes you Princess Fortune, are manipulating, lying & crazy over exaggerators. BUT if that is the truth, how does that effect you? How does ANY of this effect you?
    Your sorry ass clearly has never had to deal w/ addiction yourself or your family. I'm sure if this was your son or nephew, you would have some ridiculous way to justify it.
    His physique has changed drastically. It's funny what getting clean & doing work can do for ya. Maybe you should look into a gym membership.
    A Forever Recovery's success rate is higher than your IQ.
    So for anyone that IS interested, check out the success rate & Moral Reconation Therapy.
    I doubt your pathetic blog is doing anything for anyone. The only thing people are seeing is how you obviously have some issues that need to be addressed. Michael Daunora has taken the responsibility to get help, got his act together, & is showing others that CHANGE IS POSSIBLE!
    The common saying applies here -- Don't judge, until you have walked in their shoes.


    1. It's not illegal to use photographs taken off of Facebook. Check your facts before you babble. I can understand AFR using past clients. However, he's not had enough time to prove himself to be truly recovered. His last arrest was 10/12. How can anyone (with a brain) think that he's proven himself to be capable of working with and for addicts? It hasn't even been a year. And, if these are the photos that were available on facebook, he is clearly not mature enough to be working in an environment where maturity is a prerequisite. Regarding your other comments, I don't know what AFR's success rate is, but I did call the MI AG and there were 27 complaints to their office. There are also many "Rip Off" reports regarding this facility. "Success rate"(s) are very easily manipulated. I've found that out myself when my nephew regressed and they tried to manipulate his admittance to make it more favorable to their statistics. "How does ANY of this effect you?" Really???? This affects all of us. How can you be so selfish to think that what goes on anywhere in this country doesn't affect us all. If this treatment center is not doing it's job, then they are taking advantage of our most vulnerable citizens and profiting off of them. You must be numbed by the bad behavior that you are surrounded by. It's because of people like this blogger that are calling attention to the misdeeds of some that are helping us to maintain standards which enable us to get the proper help for our loved ones. We are eternally grateful to anyone that takes the time to help others when they need it most.
    2. Thank you for your comment. Miss Fortune hopes your nephew is doing well.

  2. Thank you for your comments.

    Looks like "Knox Chick" may be a pseudonym--go figure!

    What tipped Miss Fortune to her decision? This misogynist sentence may have been my first clue: "All women, this includes you Princess Fortune, are manipulating, lying & crazy over exaggerators."

    [Note to self: must dig out Three Stooges DVD collection and watch the "Woman Haters" short.]

    The "success rate"? Even Per Wickstrom's own PR artfully sidesteps the success rate claim at A Forever Recovery, often quoted verbally to prospective patients by Life Solutions Inc.'s "non-biased referral counselors" at 70 percent:

    The A Forever Recovery program is an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in. Not every treatment methodology works for every client. Some people are very receptive to 12-step principles, whereas others are more comfortable with faith-based treatment. Cognitive approaches have excellent success, whereas others thrive within a more holistic approach. A Forever Recovery allows clients to choose from a wide range of recovery methodologies, coupled with Moral Recognition Therapy (MRT), to achieve success rates unmatched in the addiction treatment industry. The bottom line is that there is no single therapeutic approach to recovery that works for everyone… until now

    A success rate higher than Miss Fortune's IQ? How can that be, when my most recent IQ test score was a shining 123?

    And "Knox Chick" closes with a common saying: "Don't judge, until you have walked in their shoes".

    Back at you, Knoxie!

    Here's an uncommon saying from Miss Fortune to you: "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity."

  3. Pseudonym is right Miss Fortune <---

    The only thing that is "shining" about you, or this blog, is humility brought upon yourself.

    Back at me - There was no judging involved on my part. Stating facts, yes.

    "Only two things are infinite, the universe & human stupidity" isn't uncommon. Human stupidity will be around forever, you are living proof of that.

    Enjoy watching Three Stooges alone : )


    1. Well, I guess you schooled me but good.

      Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk!
  4. Miss Fortune, please check out his latest profile photo. It's even more dramatic than those the last one you posted.


    1. Thank you for the heads-up, Karen. I've added it to the story.
