    Thank you, LadyCat! That one slipped by us. Yes, it should be WebSleuths.

    I can't be sure, but one was "Christiana Benedo". I'm not positive of the spelling.

    The name Christiana Benedo sounds very Italian, which would be in keeping with Brody's real name being Anthony Giordano. I wonder if Christina or Christine, or some variation thereof, could be the name of his mother, and possibly Benedo (Benito?) was her maiden name. I'll do some checking on Ancestry.com to see if I can find anything like that. Many times Italian sons are very close with their moms, so it could have been a way for him to pay tribute to her.

    I'm pretty sure it was Benedo--kind of taken from my maiden name. I hated the made-up name, I remember. His object was to come up with his "magic 27", according to his system of numerology (which apparently is unlike any other system Websleuthers have come across), so I don't think he was looking at a family name here. More like coming up with something I would accept that still put him in control. As you see, I resisted--up to a point.

    in the book this stood out to me

    there was a panel truck a youngish driver and an older passanger driving towards the ocean i thought they were mighty friendly for strangers
    sometime between one and two i heard anna in the glased in porch me and joe used as a bedroom i heard anna talking at about two talking to the cats
    what was she saying to the cats? was it talk she would have said to the cats or was it human talk she would have said to someone else. is it possible someone opend up the door and took anna or she saw some strangers and opend up the door for them beacuse they have said were here to see your parents and they may have told her not to get u or joe? could the people in the panel truck have been both males and one of them was brody and waters or could one of them have been brody with another male or was it a female in the car. did this friend of yours know what brody and waters looked like? i think the panel car has to be looked at first annas brother said the car had washington plates a man and a women in the car. and they wouldnt get in the car. now think like a kidnaper ive spoken to all the children they wouldnt get into the car our plan was to get anna maybe that day or scout her out get a feel for how she acts towards strangers and stuff. knowing that her and her brothers saw the car with the washington plates they wouldnt come back with the same car and plates that would give away to much and easy trace what i think they did was borrow a car or rented one for the second time they came so they wouldnt look suspicus had her brothers had been around. assuming that these people took anna


    annasmom or joe did anything pan out from the clicks on the telephone annas mom u said that u mentioned that to the police but they didnt seem suprised?

    Has the police file arrived yet?
    When I read about clicks on the phone and police not being surprised, I wondered if maybe the phone had been tapped by police. And that could have been why they were so reluctant to turn the file over.
    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?

    Annasmom, I just finished reading Searching For Anna. For lack of better words, it really touched my heart. Thank you again for sharing your story.

    still reading it very very intresting book. something that also stood out from the book was the footprint was it small or rather large maybe the people who took anna wanted to leave the sock and footprint as a means to lead the search in the water and not on land i think they were doing that so that the police could say we think she went into the water but then we cant find a body or something and leave it at that they wanted everyone to think she drowned so that their master plan of action to get anna out of the state would work. think about if u were going to commit this crime how would u do it how would u think like a kidnaper

    It is very unlikely that anyone came around to the back door. They would have been visible making the entire walk from the road, in front of the big window, etc., into the fenced yard. The friend who mentioned the van did not know what Brody and Dr. Waters looked like. The clicks on the phone were almost certainly neighbors on the party line listening in (since the phone rang for all the neighbors at the same time--one of us had two short rings, another one long ring, etc.). We may be able to tell more about this when the police report arrives.

    They say they've mailed it, but I haven't received it yet. I think the delay was just bureaucracy at work, since they were quick to send it once the detective on the case gave them the word.

    The footprint exactly fit the rubber boot of our neighbor, who had been there before we saw it, and she believes that it was her footprint. Several socks were fished out of the water in the weeks after Anna disappeared, but we didn't recognize any of them as hers. Smile, you are really good at picturing scenarios, and I appreciate this quality. I wish I could actually show you the house, the road, etc.

    Laini, thank you for reading it. I have to say that it would still be sitting in a box in the attic except for Doogie.

    I have only been able to peek in now and then for the last few weeks. I have so much to say, but it will have to wait until tomorrow when I will have more time. I know all of you are waiting in anticipation....LOL!

    However; for now; I found this extremely compelling:

    Annasmom's dream "movie" of 9/21/74 in which she envisioned the Georges. She "sees" shrubbery in the shape of the letter "L"....G.W.'s note labeled "Plan" refers to "L".

    She "sees" a woman taking care of the children, including Anna. The woman is a nurse....Margaret Kukoda was a nurse.

    She "sees" they are living on a street or road named "Gary"....The Georges are living on a street named "Geary".

    Interesting parallels.

    Annasmom also had the feeling that the nurse believed George was entitled to take Anna. From what we have discovered about them here, I believe that is exactly how they would have felt about the abduction.

    Wow mfm, good work. Margaret Kukoda died in 1967. Is there another nurse he worked with that could have taken Anna?

    Even though Kukoda died, there is a theory that her family may have been involved.

    We have never been able to track down the "Suki" person that the Georges were associated with. I believe GW worked with her at one of the hospitals.
