Here's a link to another article with side by side photos of Christopher Chichester and Clarke Rockefeller. The resemblance is uncanny.

let's see:
1. looks the same
2. uses several aliases
3. likes to hang out with the upscale crowd
4. while living in mass and nh, told people he did work for the govt (john and linda were supposably on a top secret "mission" for the govt.
5. finger prints match
6. chichester disappears in 1993, rockefeller appears 1994
7. here's an iteresting little note. rockefeller has a close friend who is a pediatrician in ny and she lives in-you guessed it greenwich, ct
8. chichester tried to unload the truck in greenwich
9. early in the rockefeller investigation authorities mentioned that rockefeller or could be an alias used by him was supposably issued a social security number in CT
10. chichester disappears, rockefeller appears, rockefeller disappears, chip smith appears.

can ya feel me - guilty as charged. only thing missing is where is linda?

Wow, you know, I really do think this Rockefeller aka Christopher Chichester aka Christopher Crow is Christian Gerhardt Strider. If in fact this guy killed one or both of the Sohus's I do not believe that was his first killing or his last.

This case really fascinates me. I saw earlier in this forum that someone thought Linda had visited the forum? Is that correct? What would make you think so? Do you guys think Linda is dead? I can see where Christian/Clark would maybe hide Linda's remains to frame her.....

Linda has never visited the forum that I'm aware of. Actually I don't think she's alive anymore personally. A few people have posted who used to know Christopher Chichester.

Here are some more articles on the Sohaus - Chichester/Rockefeller/Streiter deal. Apparently, he lied his way onto Wall Street, too.

The Boston Globe seems to indicate in a story 8/7/08 that the person who picked up Linda Sohus's cats from the kennel was Linda's half-sister. The sister is quoted as saying that she was always suspicious about Linda's disappearance because Linda would never abandon her cats in a kennel, and that the kennel demanded payment.

Interesting, thanks for sharing that. I wonder why UM made it seem so mysterious about who woman who came. It wouldn't have took much research to find out it was her half-sister imo. That makes more sense, she obviously didn't know what happened to Linda but wanted to make sure nothing happened to the cats.

I also read in another article that Christopher Chichester borrowed a fellow church member's chainsaw shortly before John and Linda and himself disappeared. That combined with the fact that John's remains were found in 3 bags and a box also seem to point to something ominous.

Default The Postcard

One Boston Globe article mentions that after the disappearance, a post card from John and Linda arrived:

Quote:
Jacoby said she thought that Linda and John were planning a trip to Connecticut, not Europe, so that John could interview for a job, when they disappeared. But later her family received a postcard, purportedly from Linda, from France.
Well, The Globe now has the postcard:

The guy really looks like a weird nerd with the glasses on- just like Chichester.

My first though when I saw this photo of him



was how much he reminds me of one of our most respected Cricket commentators Johnathan Agnew.

This is the timeline I was able to put together with the info I've been able to dig up so far. As info becomes available I hope to fill in any gaps:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I got some additional info like the biz school and high school researching some more. So here it is. I think it's pretty accurate and mostly complete:

Attends Berlin High School Graduates 1981 as an average student except for history and sociology ( other students say they believe he was older than the 17 years old he said he was) First lived with the Savio Family until he was kicked out for locking their young daughter outside for 4 hours in the dead of winter.

The bones are tentatively identified as John Sohus, Linda is not found on the property. A homicide investigation ensues and police begin looking for Christopher Chichester again this time as a person of interest.
