    Tonight the "Disappeared" episode for Jeremy Alex premiered on the ID network, I hadn't known much of this case. Just reading the above article I had no idea he'd been on his way to check out a moped. Anyone know what became of that?
    As with a couple other cases I've commented on, I think the drugs are key here. Many friends of mine, etc, have done "speedballs" (heroin and cocaine mixed together) and the stories of heard of the effects are pretty scary. Some people say they see huge animals, snakes, etc... or another person close to me said he feared people or cops after him, and carried a gun, scared for his life.
    The effects of cocaine by itself I can honestly say increase and create paranoia. I've seen people do/say some real irrational stuff while high. Either Jeremy was using coke, and then heroin to come down... or what I personally think, he was using them together. The second I watched this program and his behavior, its what I instantly thought. I don't personally believe anyone was truly after Jeremy, especially after his girlfriend related Jeremy coming to her after a night of (what she felt was) drug use. His girlfriend stated that Jeremy arrived at their old house and began yelling at her that she & two other friends were standing outside his house in ski masks the night before. I think the fear of people coming after him was already established before he went missing...and obviously it was not reality.
    I know of situations where after extended cocaine use a person will truly believe someone is in the same room that is not really there. I've seen with my own eyes and its terrifying. Possibly Jeremy binged on these drugs and truly believed people were after him, and started running away. Its hard to say how long the drugs would keep affecting him in this way, but possibly more than a day. Maybe he had drugs with him. But in the end I think he more than likely ran about in the woods, fearful for his life, and succumbed to the elements, cliffs, or ocean.
    Did anyone else see this episode?

    I just saw this episode last night on Investigation Discovery and it's one of the most interesting episodes I've seen!

    He goes crazy and starts running around in the woods saying someone is trying to kill him?? Then he offers to give that old guy and his wife all his money if they'll leave him alone?? WTF??

    That sounds like symptoms of schizophrenia but I'll assume the drugs made him act crazy.

    Don't the police basically know who the drug dealers are and can't they get informants to tell them something??

    If it was a drug deal gone bad wouldnt' they have found out who killed him by now?? 6 years later??

    They said on the show maybe he just fell off the cliff and was washed out to sea! They said that's happened to others before and they never see them again.

    If they never see them again then HOW do they know that's how they died??

    I watched the episode, and have to agree it is one of the more intriguing stories they have covered. Speedballs(Cocaine/Heroin) don't necessarily cause paranoia or hallucinations. Many people use the drugs in combination to midigate the intense undesired effects of each one(extreme high and paranoia from cocaine/nodding or incoherent state from Heroin). What concerns me is this guy was apparently going at it(getting high) for reportedly almost two days, Thursday to Saturday. Street drugs can be cut with many things including poisons so needless to say that is a concern. I believe that one of two things happened. He either lost his mind from the drugs, fell into the water, and drowned. Or he owed someone money for drugs and they killed him either to make a statement or to silence him because he was losing his mind.

    Yeah, you would think Jeremy would've told someone he was in trouble with such and such drug dealer then at least we'd have a lead.

    That husband of his ex-teacher should've tackled him till the cops got there! He was the last person to ever see Jeremy.

    From what I read elsewhere he DID try to tackle him....
    I saw this 'Disappeared" episode today for the first time...
    I had never heard of this guy, googled his name and man there was some brutal opinions out there...such as just b/c Jeremy may have done drugs he wasn't worthy of a "disappeared" episode...

    I saw that episode too and they showed Jeremy running away from the husband back into the woods and they never showed that he ever made any effort to tackle or stop Jeremy.

    effects of drugs pretty much differ person to person... but from personal experience i'm told many people hallucinate after non-stop use.if someone is partying for a couple days, their grasp on reality begins to slip. as i said before, i've much experience w/ both drugs, and i believe jeremy was getting high for a couple days and his paranoia topped out. if anyone has blacked out from drinking before; a blackout will cause you to do things and not remember/be conscious of them. this has also happened to a friend of mine for a few hours and they wandered around town and had no recollection of where they went, or what they did. by talking to them you knew something was wrong. turns out they'd been doing cocaine/heroin for a day or so.
    i'm only saying that this is what i believe was the cause of jeremy alex's disappearance. i still don't believe anyone was actually after him...he was delusional. jeremy's death was most likely caused by misadventure, falling into the water, cliff, etc.

    I just posted this same msg in the Brian Shaffer thread.
    I found a forensic astrology site that has a detailed chart for Jeremy and one for Brian. Like I said I said in Brian's thread, I'm not sure what I really think of this but it is very very detailed. I'm not sure if I can link the site but if you do a google search for Jearmy Ted Alex forensic astrology then you will find it. Incredibly interesting.

    If anybody has not seen Disappeared featuring Jeremy's case, It is on Youtube

    The Ep. is called "Into the Woods".

    This is def. one of the most crazy/interesting cases i've seen.

    Never Forget The Missing

    It was 8 years ago yesterday (4/24/2012) that Jeremy Alex went Missing. My thoughts and Prayers go out to his friends and family and all who have searched and prayed for some closure.
    I lived in Belfast at the time Jeremy went missing, and I must say from my experience even though Belfast is a small town where everyone knows everyone's business, I found there was a complete lack of communication when he disappeared...I worked in social services there and even through that I didn't hear much about the case. It wasn't until a year or so later that I remember seeing one solitary Missing poster tacked to a telephone poll on Northport Ave.
    I must say its an eerie feeling when you live in such a small town and a local goes missing for this many years, even though i did not know him, I feel like i do and it feels like a personal loss.

    Over the years and watching the Disappeared episode I felt that there could have been a few more things that could have been touched on further. For instance, and this is a big one, the size of the drug problem in Belfast and lack of attention it seems to garner. I have known several individuals who have had to go into protective custody for testifying against the "drug dealers" whoever they may be, because they threatened their lives and families. On the episode of Disappeared they did mention the fact that Jeremy stated men in black ski masks were after him, when i heard that I had an "A Ha!" revelation. In different conversations with friends i had in the area prior to Jeremy's disappearance I heard numerous stories throughout the social service field about 3 men in black ski caps scaring people...and it was always three figures in black. No doubt in my mind these stories are true and some how did play a role in Jeremy;s incident.

    Its been 8 years, for all the friends and family I truly hope some closure can be found. God Bless Them all

    If the three people in black really did exist, you would think there would be some people still in the Belfast area, probably members of the drug scene, that would know who these people are. It's unfortunate that nobody has ever come forward with any good information on this.

    It totally is unfortunate. the weird thing about Belfast is that everybody knows everybody, but when things like this happen, people are so tight lipped and will not speak up no matter what. The drug scene is pretty real there, and there are people out there who want to hurt those who have "wronged" them. Belfast has a lot of different cultures for a small town, youve got the hippies, the townies, the fisherman (which is partly how drugs get into the town) and you also have the druggies. Belfast is a hub for a lot of maine towns and activities. drive up 95 North from Massachusetts and its a short trip from Augusta, theres the downeast area following route 1/1a from Belfast. Bangor International Airport is about 45 minutes north. And of course you can enter Canada through many entry points. So a lot can come in as well as go out. I really wish that someone would finally come forward. There needs to be some justice for Jeremy Alex.

    Yeah I actually live in Bangor and there is always a surprising amount of crime/drugs in the news regarding the Belfast area. It is a lot sketchier than most of the surrounding towns in the area... probably because of it's appeal to out of towners. There is also a lot of people from NY/Mass getting busted for running drugs to Belfast which tells me it's a hub for this kind of activity.

    It's been just over 8 years buddy. I just wish someone in Belfast would have the courage to say something, the truth, so that we know what happened to you.
