Saying he’s sick of the lies being told about him, the stepfather of a western Iowa teen accused of setting a fatal fire, is demanding a chance to tell his side of the story. In a three-page letter mailed to several media outlets, 39-year Brian Street says he failed to save two of his stepchildren during the March 31st fire at their home in Griswold, in Cass County, and failed to save his step daughter Tracey Dyess before the fire. Street – who is in the Polk County jail facing federal charges of sexual exploitation of children and possession of child pornography, says – referring to his relationship with Tracey – “something went wrong and I didn’t see it.” He says he still loves Tracey even though she allegedly set the fire in an attempt to kill him, and wants to marry her, if she will still have him. He’s making five demands for the exclusive rights to “granting him an interview,” including payment of an unspecified amount. Dyess’ Attorney, Greg Steensland says that’s just the type of thing he’d expect from a manipulator like Street, because that’s what he’s done to Tracey, all along.
