    I just recalled something that becomes more important within the new context of focusing on the Wild Man and his shack: Anna's school bus driver contacted me after the HMB Review article and stated that she recalled seeing "a couple" of white vehicles parked near the interesection of Purissima Creek and Verde Roads on the day that Anna disappeared. This is exactly where the Wild Man's shack was located. And recall that Craig Barrick saw two men travelling westbound on PC Road (away from the farm) in a white van. Craig then saw Anna playing in the front yard when he arrived, so Anna was not in the van when Craig saw it.

    The Timeline of Relevant Events

    12:20 pm - Anna arrives home by bus

    Approximately 12:25-12:40 pm - School bus driver sees "a couple" of white vehicles parked near the Wild Man's shack

    Approximately 1:45-2:05 pm - Craig sees two men heading away from farm in white van

    2:10 pm - Craig arrives at farm and sees Anna playing in front yard

    2:15-2:20 pm - Anna is discovered gone

    Could the white van have been one of the vehicles parked near the shack that the bus driver saw? That would mean that the van travelled east (away from the shack and toward the farm) for some reason, then west when they were seen by Craig. Could this have been a "scouting run" and they immediately returned and abducted Anna?

    I am just thinking out loud here - it is primarily speculation. However, it is curious that the bus driver identified some white vehicles parked at this suspicious location four months ago (I know that this location wasn't of interest at the time she mentioned it, and I do not believe that a "white vehicle" was mentioned in the Review's article - there are an awful lot of things matching up independently with this hypothesis.)

    Here is a map to show the relationship between the farm where Anna disappeared and the Wild Man's shack. The school bus was heading southwest (away from the farm) when the driver saw the vehicles near the shack.

    Just out of curiosity, where is the cemetery in relation to "The wild man's" house?

    We may have missed the most obvious source of information on Speder. That is a Catholic organization right? What is the closest Catholic church to there? Does anyone have any contacts there? And would they be able to find out if Speder was on the church roll or if the priests know anything about him?
    Many times the Catholic org. would give preference to hires of their own religion, esp. in sensitive positions- even if it was for lower level employment.
    I don't know how forthcoming the priests would be if they knew why the inquiry was being made.
    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?

    Stephen Keisle

    Can we find out if Stephen Keisle is still alive? It sounds like he was at one time in prison. Is he still there? If so, I think we need to talk to him. If he has said he liked little blonde girls maybe he'd be willing to say if he ever had contact with Anna. Depending on his health and prison status he might not have much to loose.

    A clarification: I spoke again to the bus driver last evening. She said that she saw one white car (not a van) parked on Purissima Creek Road. She recalled it because seeing cars parked on the road was rare. The location was not exactly at the Wild Man's shack, but was west of the farm on PC Road about half way between the farm and the intersection with Verde Rd.

    Annasmom mentioned last night that she believes that George Waters owned a white car in 1973.

    It was between the shack and Hwy. 1 (Cabrillo Highway). The property that the shack was on is next door to the cemetery.

    Was it previously discussed what model car GW had at that time? For some reason I am thinking we discussed a VW or Volvo or I am just not thinking clearly? I am too tired to go searching out threads right now. I will check the threads a bit later. Sorry.

    Is there any possibility there was any kind of insignia or writing on the car the bus driver saw?

    In other words... a white car like the bus driver saw?!?!

    In talking with Annasmom about this, she confirmed that he had a white VW squareback when the family still lived together. She was not sure what model he had in 1973 (Mazda?), but she knows that it was white also. The bus driver cannot recall what make and model she saw (it is an amazing feat of memory that she remembers as much as she does!).

    It just dawned on me: when Joe Ford tried to provoke GW and Brody into saying something about Anna (while Joe was listening from the room next door in the hotel), he sent GW a letter saying that someone had seen a white car similar to his in the area around the time Anna disappeared. This was made up, just to get a reaction. Funny thing is... it was also true, it just wasn't known at the time.

    Actually, I don't think it was made up. It was just that lots of similar cars were seen around that time, and nobody saw the driver of the car Joe mentioned. I have in an early report which we took to LE that GW was driving a grey 1970 VW with the license plate ARH..had he traded in the white 60s VW squareback? Joe Ford would know, since he followed GW's car. Also, I thought that keys to a Mazda were among GW's things found at the hotel after his death.

    So now we need to know if, when and why he perhaps traded/sold the white VW...Exactly what he was driving at the time of Anna's disappearance...Did he trade cars immediately after Anna's disappearance?

    A lot of questions!

    I assume the car he was driving at the time of his death was taken by his family.

    I also wonder if the Wildman or Richard Speder drove a vehicle regularly and parked it at the shack. Speder had to have a vehicle to go back and forth to work unless someone picked him up and returned him to the shack. What type of vehicle would they have driven?
