I think that is exactly what happened.

Just saw the case for the first time. Absolutely convinced he left her and it wasn't amnesia.

I'm dubious about most amnesia cases on UM but this one in particular just felt like he split.

Anyone unstable enough, at their age, to get married after ONE MONTH of knowing each other is definitely not the most dependable mate.

I'm bumping this because I thought this thread had a lot of interesting information about the case that I wasn't aware of before.

I wish we could rename this thread "Missing Fish Guy".

Here is an article on the fire. Unfortunately, and unless I missed something, I can't tell if it's the same fish farm that was owned by the Williamsons. I did email the newspaper; maybe we'll hear something back.

I always thought the lady in this segment was a little bit of a nut. I always got the feeling she called him 10 times a day when he wasn't right next to her, and did other things like that. This is based on her relentless pursuit of him after he went missing, and they knew each other how long? If that's the case, then I can kind of see why this guy wanted to ditch her.

I got kind of a similar feeling, too. She seemed like a nice enough lady, but I sensed that the marriage was maybe more than a little rushed, the tilapia operation was overwhelming (and fell through, eventually), and that Williamson was probably feeling more than a bit suffocated by all of it.

While I do think the marriage was very rushed, you could sense that Christine really loved Fish Guy. That's what made what he did even more deplorable. I wonder if he ever reverted back to his original name after the update happened, and what became of both of them.

While I think the most likely scenario is that Williamson faked the amnesia to escape his marriage and lifestyle, I do still wonder about the Amtrak sighting. Do you guys think that was Williamson, someone else, or a fabrication in and of itself?

UM has really made me cynical of eyewitness accounts, and while I tend to think the woman interviewed (she was a nurse as I recall) did actually have this experience, I just don't believe she saw Craig Williamson.

I think it happened, but was someone other than fish guy (sorry, from here on out that's his name to me). On the Lifetime Stack reruns, this portion of the segment was completely taken out. Where was the Amtrak sighting at? According to this article: http://news.google.com/newspapers?ni...g=6277,8183858

He claims to have left from Wisconsin to Colorado on a business trip. He checked into a motel, and told Christine to call him the next morning to wake him up (red flag #1). When she called, he didn't answer so she called police. They found most of his belongings in his room, his van/bus was abandoned outside the motel. His credit cards were found on a shelf in a grocery store in Texas (red flag #2), and he also had a rental car (red flag #3) that was found in Mexico (red flag #4), with beard trimmings that matched him (red flag #5). He claims he was beaten and woke up in a hospital with the name tag "Ron". He didn't remember the name of the hospital or where it was located (red flag #6).

All of these red flags I've noted make me more suspicious of his story of amnesia. If he were truly attacked, somebody stole his credit cards, used them to get a rental car and nothing else, and then left them in a store in Texas before making it to Mexico. That doesn't make sense. No one is going to attack someone simply to use their credit cards to get a rental car. And they're certainly not going to trim his beard and plant them in the rental car before abandoning it.

ETA: I also found another article, http://community.seattletimes.nwsour...3&slug=1891084, which states that the couple dropped closed to a half a million dollars to start their fish farm. If the fish farm was faltering, this could also be a reason as to why he wanted to disappear. That article also mentions that his credit cards were left out in plain sight in the grocery store in Texas, as if someone wanted them to be found. The biggest kicker to me, is that if he indeed was suffering from amnesia, he obviously used the credit cards to obtain a rental car (his beard trimmings were confirmed to be his) and travel to Mexico to abandon it. And his rental car was found just over the Mexican border, meaning that beforehand he was in Texas as well. Coincidence? Had he really been suffering from amnesia, he obviously had his credit cards in his possession, so he would have known who he was all along! That second article is really sad because it shows how much Christine really did love and care for him.

I agree. She showed her true devotion by hopping in her car and traveling all over the place to find him and is probably one of my favorite interviewees on UM. I really hope she found someone special and is living happily today.

I'm still torn on Fish Guy ( ) I think it's probably the most likely scenario that he faked it. I think if he did, even to spare her feelings, that's just despicable. It's far better to be honest and come clean than have your spouse think anything under the sun could have happened to you.

I heard back from the newspaper. It did not have any information to verify or discredit the idea that the farm that burned down, was the same one owned by Craig and Christine.

Wait. So you think there are TWO Fish Guys? Heartbreaker Fish Guy and Amtrak Fish Guy?

My god! Does this mean there's another Fish Guy out there still in need of help? Unsolved Mysteries needs to come back on the air and help Other Fish Guy (aka Amtrak Fish Guy) find his fish!!!!!
