    Unless a link is included, anything I say, is my opinion and my opinion only. It may not be the truth as others see it, but I do have the right to my opinion.

    From the Charley project page:

    "Schweikert is originally from Guatemala. His life was insured for $1 million
    at the time of his disappearance, and when he was declared dead in 1999, his mother in Guatemala collected on the policy. Authorities received a tip that Schweikert is alive and well in Guatemala and disappeared intentionally in an insurance fraud scheme. This information was never verified, however, and his case remains unsolved. "

    And from the Amicus Journal (this is in regards to a trial for Schweikert's roommate, Manuel Ortiz, on charges unrelated to the actual disappearance of Mr. Schweikert):

    The prosecution used Schweikert’s disappearance to cast additional suspicion on Manuel at trial. However, the prosecution failed to reveal to the defense or the jury that Schweikert had been seen at his bank withdrawing funds on the day his disappearance was reported. Furthermore, Manuel’s legal team uncovered through a sworn statement of Saavedra’s son and testimony of Saavedra’s widow that Saavedra conspired with Schweikert and Schweikert’s mother to fraudulently claim the life insurance money. Moreover, at the time of the trial Schweikert was not only alive but still in contact with Saavedra!

    Interestingly, there is a facebook page for Rolando Schweikert in guatemala. I think the pictures could possibly be the same man, but given that the picture posted of Rolando is 20 years old, it's hard to know for sure.

    ETA: There is a picture on the facebook page that seems to be about the same timeframe (or a little earlier) as the picture on charley project page, but still can't say for certain.

    I'm not sure it even matters though because if the above is true, his family already knows he's not missing, and the insurance company likely closed the case long ago.
