If you haven't called voicemail line yet and you'd like to the number is seven hundred and seventy five hundred and forty five six thousand four hundred and eleven. Let Maurice take it from here weren't. You calling from Love one Colorado, and this question is more for doktor got women were between other service and breaks from between. I thought it might be a good time to ask this Question is related to how you got involved with tears case. What was that initial experience like
what were you apprehensive about and what ends up entreat you to take it on. Also, sometimes you hear about some pushed back from law enforcement and private investigators. Can you show them Experience has regarding less than that relationship that investigators often have with law enforcement, but anyway keep up the good work, and I look forward to hearing more like a coordinator for qualified copper, rather a good question, Originally, it was contacted a terrorist sister. in the first part of February of two thousand six? our some real busy that time so actually originally turned down the case. I was there and I was contacted about the. The February again and ask if I would reconsider an idea that decided go hidden and look at the case and in trot work and do the best I can
and then I went down to a seller several times the first time. I was down there. I didn't at that. Both times are met resistance from lump sum to people and also allow enforced, and maybe lot local law enforcement and some two gb are. I have received a threatened phone call at my home hereafter have got back from one of those of trips down there and then, when I was staying in our report Mozilla. Ah, I have scary incident there with a truck about three clock in the morning, so there. There's been some pressure off one of the main themes is. I was not able to get my hands on some documents that were promised me which no sort are hindered hinder. What I was able to do,
I'm not sure that I love that all the information that could have been told me was told me, so I had to fast struggle. Crawl off last ten and a half years to try to work this. get through the saw that one act Those things and terrors house some when the potential evidence I know that it took a couple days for the GB to ever come down there and collect there the items you also you have to remember that in our no six, oh six or seven. I eight this was a very very high case and tapered off with the years of day and is totally different now and in of seventeen then it is even with the park. Ass is totally differ. Then it was back and of six.
Am, I was very hot, but an issue down there. So people have to use and everything would a lot different them than they are now, but has been a major major struggle problem received in the ten and a half years of a four hundred plus tips. From all other extreme surprise tat, you do you really great bear down a Willie, Tampax frustrating. and so my thoughts were about after I get location under a lot of white rabbit with boy said so in this case, but the ones deal out to me that the gap arrived in its owner to me, you have four ten verification of somebody who was there and that something was discovered, an FAO and that the police and the F b I have that evidence. So my question,
really how much effort is being put into that, while heavy fact start broken. in a piece of information, an event in also sort of a mystery, because Sap Dragon occurred about eight days have Terror went missing, so the question one would have ass is: why would somebody draw what engine to the area when there was no attention focused on snapdragons rode after terawatt went until the far so that's a question has to be As is my understanding that arm potential evidence was made it to the Gbi that was found by the dog hammer and cadaver bout that evidence of potential Evidence was analyze, I think by the FBI. Crime lab it's my understanding that it never late.
Terror to the far there was no there's no evidence to Lincoln Terror. There were no off to the father. That does not mean that is not tat. Today, S or late to this, I do not think that the gps has any bona fide forensic evidence: Lincoln Terror to snapdragons bar They have such suspicions, but I don't think they bear their able to prove it. There were some searches that were supposed to start there. and they're, not here mellow and echo, search taxes that research in the church. We got anonymous cow they will. They were drawn to be Ben Hill County and in really never really finished? That area? Do that, upon behalf snapdragons research, because I was there when it researched, searched a snap dragon I guess we won't ever know until the cases ever sobbed somebody are reveals that it is late or not.
My name is very then I'm calling from California I'm really enjoying the part cat- I'm wondering at the F b I was ever involved in the investigation of terror on seems police and even the GB. I seem to have a lotta connections to the people involved. in the case I'm wondering if anyone outside Georgia investigated this missing persons case. To my knowledge, The FBI has never been involved. In this case. No one, no law enforcement to state outside sad state of Georgia has ever been involved. In this case, FBI has to be asked,
Why she's bothered make the entire thing that the seat was scooted back? No one ever I go at all the old changed organ it worked on when I get in its noticeably skidded back and when I get it up, setting an individual generally with it in the same position. All means we can determine where her normal see position is, but I wish someone could look into that have always she TAT was about five three and I'm not sure when the seat was noticed to be pushed back eyes. It was that Monday or if it was Tuesday, because on Wednesday Java neighbor had to car detailed and washed. So I'm not. I do not know if this seat was noticeable
about that because she said she made people remember the name on it simply set it to her. Think you know. I do not believe that the person that reducing the fate of Facebook Accounts- George Harrison was ever a student of terror Grinstead. So the answer question is no. I don't think that he was ever a student. Harrison was ever a student of terrors aid, Patrick Nolan Arkansas and my wife can you not infringing on this the last couple of days and one thing. My mind is the fact that her horse she'd had been scooted back, and I don't know how tall she is here. Is that most people, the driver, cart, leave work the car seat in the same position all the time why she bought it, make the entire thing that
seat was scooted back. No. Whenever I go in my call, the old changed or good work on when I get in its noticeably scooted back and when asked it up something an individual generally. What is it in the same position? All means we can determine where her normal seem position is, but I wish someone could look into that. Have always she tat- was about five three and I'm not sure when the seat was noticed, debate push bag eyes. It was that Monday or if it was Tuesday because on Wednesday Joe neighbor had to car detailed and washed So I'm not. I do not know if this this was noticeable after he did. That offers that Monday. This that will make a difference. This is called for,
I can Virginia absolutely wasn't so something out my thought about. He takes in tears. Mom asked me to go. Clara? That Saturday night was wondering whether information came from and ask me how credible could be stories? Can only change. you know. Maybe, and then together are you holding the psychologist about about the actual people who committed the crime, a kind of putting themselves in the story in the picture you? How could it be? will the heat. I actually called Tell mom and said he was worried about her and offered to go in that way. It looks like they are going to create not destroying our by better but put him out of the picture, but also in the picture. You know me in an interview that arm,
this failure dead with Nancy Grace in January, two thousand and six Nancy Astro. Was she to visit you on that Sunday face said she has. She had talked about it. She was going to. Let me know because she didn't know since she was tied up, I'm scared you with the girls. She didn't know if she would have time to come because she had study and to do, and then She goes on to ask her about her, become and worried about her, and she started saying she counter on during the daytime. Sunday in and they get Answer- and she said I didn't think much about it at first, but she never come by, but I really didn't start to get word until later in the act and when she had not called me back, I began to get concerned. Then Nancy Astern did you call a neighbour,
Miss off. I said I did not call her Saturday night. It was late, very late, maybe two one thousand two hundred and thirty or one hundred and thirty. That would be Sunday actually Monday morning when I called the neighbors to see if a car was home or phenotype lit, looked unusual as he asked her They say Miss face said that they didn't seem to think in thing. Looked unusual that the car was there that they have been all day and didn't get back into light, but they said the carving nothing, but an unusual wouldn't have access to the phone records, We were really dont know who called our first but has always been said that you know Miss Baker. Hey thanks to government check owner aviators. Winds. Are you with me from Naples Florida? This is my favorite podcast to listen to now, keep up the good work, and my question is regarding dykes, why
and is we haven't really heard much about her? Was there ever any kind of an interview done with her, or was she ever investigated or have you tried to make contact? with regard to my mother, she's never made a public statement about this case eleven years. It's my understand and she was start alibi their Saturday night. You have to remember and allow people and to forget this. The terror as they cases the largest case file in Georgia history. So all these people were interviewed probably a couple times or more so on their she's. She's, no doubt been interviewed but Anything else is hard to say, because she's never gone on record in the media made a statement or anything. My name is just a lot can add up your pie. Tat had been left. Thank you break up one thing
wanted to know if you had asked anybody about or if you have access to attend that on all of those messages, like twenty something messages on terrorism voicemail, I was just wondering if you had heard what the nature of those voice nails were, because you brought up in one of the episodes like if he had anything to do with her disappearance. Why would he leave all these words now, like you know, she's, not there and then in my hand and like well, maybe maybe that was like tractable like he did, that the kind of throw everyone off with his tracks, if you didn't, have something to do with it, and maybe the nature of the voice mail themselves would kind a hint at that, like you could, I don't know, maybe see if there was a very unequal in his voice like was he genuine? They looking for
and I am, I can't remember- keep addressed that if their deleted by our ah, my just once and all I ask your question refers to the top of messages Deb. He thought slim phone, terrorists or phone. The small understand him that there was hang ups and that general, the general nature of some of the masses were so like a bit been worried are concerned. A lot of people would consider The number of messages, you know even more than four five, which was would be sort of unusual that you know it was me. Or unusual is to come. many times to express the worrying concern. Then you get an opportunity to be at the House Sunday night and you do nothing other than leave a business card.
