    Thank you Doogie for clarifying that he didnt chase Annasbro and Joe off his property.You know its weird but I had a nightmare last night about that "Wild Man" I dont really remember the dream but I woke up really disturbed and asked my husband to hold me. The image of a crazy man with a hatchet in his hand chasing someone just freaked me out.
    I really think this should be looked into even if Richard Speder isnt the "wild man" Are you going to contact Richard Speder Doogie? You said there was mail in the shack, did the post office deliver mail there? If so, is there any way to get records of people who had mail delivered there? Is the shack still there?

    I don't mean to make light of Richard Speder; however his name reminds me of "Mr. Richard Feder of Fort Lee, New Jersey" from the Roseanne Roseannadanna skits on SNL (my love to Gilda Radner ).

    If Speder is not the "Wild Man", then that means he probably moved into the shack after the WM left (after Anna's disappearance) and would not be of any interest to us. I am reluctant to contact Speder at this point until I have a better feel for how he fits in to the whole picture (if he fits in at all).

    The mail was addressed to a Post Office Box, so there would be no way to trace who resided at the shack by it.

    Can we find who owned the property in 1973? As landlord, they should be able to give info on who the tennants were.

    AnnasMom, I know hearing this now is probably upsetting. But I am guessing that with the chaos that probably occurred after she disappeared, and the grief that all were going through....most likely this was probably mentioned to LE and when they dismissed it, it was probably forgotten. After all, why upset you more with what was thought to be useless information? After all they had not found anything concrete. Looking back now, with her disappearance still unsolved it stands out more than it would have then.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Dr. Doogie--Do you have the actual address of this home? I'm not asking you to put it here, but I'm just wondering. The actual address of the home can give us a history of homeownership & names since it was first built up until the present. That way we can determine if the wild man was or was not Speder.

    I am wondering also if the cemetary and the house could possibly be connected....like a caretakers cottage or something.

    The property was owned by Bank of America at the time. It is unknown if the WM was a renter or a squatter. The condition of the shack was such that it may not have been a legitimate rental property.

    This is plausible. I also think that time has added weight to this possibility in Joe Ford's mind - remember (in the same way that the case was first investigated as a drowning), the focus of the possible abduction probably focused rightly on George Waters and Brody. With prime suspects such as those two, it was easy to ignore an oddball who lived down the street. It is the discovery of his possible affiliation with a treatment center for pedophiles (not known at the time of the disappearance) that elevates the WM's profile.

    I don't know how to use census records. Is there a way to track who lived there through the census?

    Do you know who owned the property before Bank of America? Other than development property banks get their property through forclosures- and it sounds as though this might be a the way they acquired this one. When banks take over a property they sometimes allow the previous owners to stay there until a determination to sell is made.

    Thanks, Dr. Doogie. It might still be worth checking out. You can look up San Mateo property records online. I can post a link if you like.

    Specific Census records are confidential for 75 years (which is why 1930 is the most current info you can access today). Property deeds on file is the best we can do, and that is how Joe Ford found that B of A owned the property then. If the WM was the previous owner and was forclosed on, this would at least give us a name to work with.

    Thank you, Mysteriew: the voice of sanity. It might be worth noting that the farm where we lived was also being administered by Bank of America, since it was in probate. I don't know if there was a connection.

    DRDOOGIE, I strongly support your discretion in this delicate and sensitive inquiry. It must be remembered that the tenant of the property in 1973 is simply a "person of interest".

    In hopes of clarifying the time line:

    Annasbro and I questioned the neighbors, including the subject of interest, within three weeks of Annaís disappearance. Except for the disturbing response from that person there was little to note.

    In subsequent years, while continuing our search for Anna in other directions, I often drove the Higgins-Purissima Rd. seeking clues or inspiration. It must have been on one of these occasions in 1980 that I noticed the property in question seemed abandoned. It would have been then that I collected the material that ended up in Annasmomís file. I cannot recall whether Annasbro was with me at that time.

    While the person who lived on the property in 1980 may or may not be the same person who lived there in 1973, it seems to me likely that there would be some connection. As noted previously, BofA was the title holder. Because of the relative remoteness and squalid condition of the property it seems unlikely that the bank would have advertised for tenants. More probable would be a direct connection with the previous tenant.

    Thanks, Joe. Now it makes sense.

    You are correct in your caution. We do not know if the Wild Man has any connection to Anna's disappearance or if the Wild Man is Richard Speder. Because of this, Speder's employment by a treatment facility for pedophiles is (as of now) nothing more than an "interesting" bit of information. We have a few "dots", but will need to connect them together to make a plausible theory. Until that point, Mr. Speder needs to be treated respectfully.
