But then again, maybe he wasn't as smart as we think he was. Maybe George Brody was just a plain rich kid pain in the butt, and his Daddy gave him everything he wanted until he ticked him off one day for doing something stupid. (Paris Hilton comes to mind for some reason...LOL) George, never having a job and no money of his own, became resourceful and used his charm to survive when Daddy cut the purse strings.

I have a feeling there are a few ties to this family I just a soon stay far away from. I will not be contacting them again.
Hoping you are still a member here Joe, haven't seen you pop in for awhile. Going back reading some earlier posts, I have a couple questions:

Will you share any theories you have about what could have happened to Anna? Do you give credence to Anna's brother's report of the couple in the car? I think the key lies in Brody's background... Did you ever met him? What was your impression?
As regards meeting Mr. Brody: I knew of him from Annasmom but had never met him until after Anna's disappearance. More on this at a later posting.
In regards to Anna's brother's report of a car stopping and attempting to get Anna inside: Remarkably, this is the first that I have heard of this. I, also, am awaiting details from her brother. I agree that this could be the key to unraveling this mystery. The revelation of this event owes itself to the open dialogue engendered here.
As for theories, like all of you I have had to keep an open mind and consider all posssibilities, however painful or grotesque. Three scenarios lend themselves to this case: a. family abduction, b. non-family abduction, c. other. Amazingly, with all the investigation into each of these catagories and countless hours of speculation I must agree with Annasmom- they (the theories) are all as likely as they are unlikely. Not a shred nor a scrap nor a sign points in a specific direction.
With your help maybe we can change that here.
Have you met George Brody face to face and spoken with him?
Also, after reading your blog again, how many nights or weeks would you say you spent in the hotel listening and watching the two George's?
I was playing around with SSDI. I put down a birthday of Aug 15, 1923 (the same date that was found in GW's posessions as GB's birthdate. We all know there is no way that GB was born in 1923.) I put down the birthplace as Massachusetts. I left the name field blank as well as everything else.
One interesting name popped up:
15 Aug 1923 Dec 1981 last residence: 02167 (Chestnut Hill, Middlesex, MA)
It's probably not him because his last residence was listed as Massachusetts but the death date really caught my attention.
I am continually amazed and eternally grateful for all of your hard work and countless hours spent on behalf of Anna and her family. If any of you have a question for me, please do not hesitate to post it here or PM me at anytime.

As to your questions:
No, I had never spoken with nor been introduced to George Brody although I had been in his presence (unbeknownst to him) on many occasions. When I first met Annasmom the two Georges had cutoff all contact with her. This was the case until their deaths.
It is difficult to say how much time I spent watching and listening-in on the two Georges. Suffice it to say, countless hours of monotonous hours spent waiting for a significant comment by either of them became mind numbing. Nevertheless, it did offer an unique perspective into their daily routine and their relationship.
I concluded that George Brody was an ageing megalomaniac and that George Waters was his tragic disciple.
Joe, In light of the mention of Damron in Waters notebook, looking back in your surveillance of the two, do you think it had any significance in their relationship?
Didnt we talk about Brody possibly being a traveling salesman?
Annasmom Did Brody enjoy smoking cigars or ever talk about Cigars?
Al Remp- A Cigar Manís History - part 1
Who is Al Remp? We asked Al to document his history so you, the blog reader, could understand his importance in cigar history...
It all began with Roitan Cigars- 1960 in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia, - placing Roitan in any and all retail outlets- following the direction of George Brody- probably the best salesman I have ever met.....
Were the records of investigation by the S.M.Sheriff's Dept. ever obtained? And in particular, the detectives notes? I know they questioned G.W. but did they also question G.B.? I should think that, under the circumstances they would have asked for I.D. Did they report the details of their surveilance? Anything you can share here?
