Has anyone gotten to this episode yet? Or remember it? It has to be by far one of the strangest episodes I've seen.

This was the story of a man searching for his wife's family but knew little about her past. The one relative he did meet, other than her children, was called Granny. She however was not a blood relative. He found out soon after they met that she was a dancer at a night club, and had ties with a gang back in Atlanta.

After they moved in together, she would lock herself away in the house during the day, with the blinds closed, and would only answer the phone for him.

The man was in the military, and even when they would move, it appears she was still being stalked.

The couple eventually got married and had 2 sons together, but she died of a brain annurysm (sp?) at just 22.

After her death, he tried to find out about her path, but got nowhere. He was given a phone number of a man who was supposedly her father, but upon calling this guy up, found out he had no children.

When he returned to Augusta to the club she worked at, the owner claimed to know nothing about her, and everyone in town told him to drop the investigation.

He was able to reconnect with his stepdaughter's father, and some of her family in the update they showed, but there were still zero updates about her past and who she really was other than the fact that her real name was Edith.

Anybody have anymore information on this case?

I watched this one today, too. It had been a while since I'd seen it, and I'd kind of forgotten about the bizarre update in which her husband was able to link up with her family, but almost nothing was mentioned about her past.

I suspect the part about her being involved with the Devils Disciples at one point was probably one of the only true things she ever told him.

I used to live outside Ft Gordon; my ex-husband was stationed there for a while. Pretty nice place, really, although I've heard the areas outside CONUS military posts in the '70s were universally pretty scuzzy.

Thanks MegTheEgg. I agree, that lady had a whole bunch of crazy stories. She talked about being terrified about her daughters father, but he seemed pretty harmless on the update. Though I could be completely wrong on that. I think she also mentioned being part Cherokee Indian through her fathers side and that also turned out to be a lie.

The actress they got to play her though was awful. Especially in that scene where they were being chased by the gang...

Just watched this one. Maybe Georgia was schizophrenic? Either way she had some kind of mental issue. She could've been a runaway as well. Seems like she was a teen mom so maybe her family disowned her?

I lean away from the schizophrenia aspect only because her paranoia seemed to stem from a real fear. We saw her being followed by the gang, and the guy who attempted to break into her house. So I get why she was paranoid. I just don't understand the lying. It appeared that she was quite the pathological liar sadly.

I agree. Schizophrenia also doesn't explain why everyone in that town refused to reveal any information about Georgia to her husband.

They claimed even the PD told Daryl to get out of town and stop asking questions, truly bazaar, she had kids young, sounds like she had a tough childhood and/or teenage years and got caught up in drugs, gangs and possibly prostitution. Gotta give Daryl credit for sticking it out...

It is possible to be both pathologically paranoid AND have people out to get you. The latter could certainly influence the former. Blair Adams is another case that I think actual bad guys and mental illness may have played a part.

The fact that everyone was telling him to stop looking for her an leave was what made this segment so bizarre to me.

On one hand, I completely understand the owner of the Go-Go Bar reacting that way.. Young servicemen "fall in love" with dancers like Georgia/Edith everyday and I'm sure can be a nuisance when they come around during the day looking for something real and they aren't simply enjoying the evening fantasy and emptying their wallets.

But the other dancers who knew Daryl wasn't just some flake saying the same thing- to drop it and leave town? The Police department??? The local TV station??? Ex Go-Go dancer or not, its so strange.

All that being said, could this be a case where UM simply played up the mysterious angle? In the original segment, there wasn't an interview with anyone other than Daryl. Not so much as even the semi-regular RS mention that such and such department declined to participate in this story.

Not that I think Daryl was lying about anything, but maybe there were legit reasons why the TV station and/or local Police were not especially helpful.

What happened to her is definitely sad, and I'm not trying to victim shame, but she clearly had a chaotic life. I mean she had 6 children by 3 men by the time she was 22 years old. Moving around the country with 2 small children depending on the kindness of strangers like "Granny" and working in the adult entertainment industry. I think she was extremely lucky to find Daryl, and honestly the first husband from the update seemed to be a pretty decent guy too. (at least 20 some years later)

I wish the update had divulged more detail and "solved the Mystery" instead of the typical LL reunion, but I guess that's just me the viewer being selfish. The fact that daughters got the opportunity to meet their biological father is really what matters most.

Just random speculation, but in line with her claims of involvement with a 1% gang, it's possible that she was a police informant or at the least she was believed to be one by acquaintances (which could explain the harassment). Possibly she said things to make herself more mysterious and interesting.

If she did suffer from an aneurysm (I don't recall if it mentioned what was the underlying cause of her death), would it have affected her personality prior to the noticeable symptoms (the severe headaches) manifesting?

Just watched this for the first (or maybe the 2nd?) time today - damn this was bizzare.

Dereld's recollection about two guys in suits coming to visit Georgia in the club one night and then another incident where they were chased by bikers on their way out leads me to two possibilities - either she ran away and the FBI or whoever was trying to turn her (and she didn't want to play) or she ran away and *was* informing to the feds. Though exactly *who/what* she was running away from and *why* is still a big unknown (a biker gang running drugs/guns?)

That the TV station wouldn't show her picture more than once and the police chief telling Dereld to just forget about it (along with everyone else) would seem to speak to some kind of high-level manipulation/interference
