Me thinks UM left a ton of information out of the segment on this one.

For anyone who follows this case and is on Facebook, here's the page operated by AJ's daughters:

I really wish this case could get picked up by another mainstream show such as Dateline or Disappeared. Apparently there was a lot of information left out of the segment that could be covered on another program where a full hour is devoted to the case.

I don't think this was another case of a crime family getting involved with a single businessman. Many UM fans bring up the mafia excuse, yet the mafia usually want evidence left behind that they killed someone for a good or valid reason. The fish lady's story seemed fishy. What irks me is UM witnesses who say they are 100% certain they saw a victim, but end up mistaken.

AJ was seen gtg kidnapped by 3 men and I think this occurred. For what IDK - maybe someone told him at AA or at the store he worked at that they knew of someone who was involved in bank or wire money fraud. And the regretted telling him and offed him with the other parties involved.

He and his wife were reunited (parts of which were shown) but he did not remember her. As a result, the two both decided to get a divorce. But it seemed they were on good terms. Sorry for the description being a little vague but I last saw this update many years ago.

But I can definitely tell you that AJ was found alive, which is rare for these kind of cases. As said, he was reunited with his wife but he could not remember her and they later divorced.
Well how come AJ's info on UM wiki and the website says he is still missing?

I believe the case DP is referring to is Craig Williamson, not AJ Breaux.

I tend to bite on what the most reasonable explanation might be. IMO, sobriety is such an extremely delicate thing and regardless of years "on the wagon" or an individual's drive, dedication and determination to remain sober, it's a tightrope and is fragile even with the best supports.

From this, it can be devastating to have a slip-up. I fear that a relapse could have initiated a serious crisis for Mr. Breaux and aren't too confident in the outcome.

This case would be great to profile on Disappeared when it returns this year.

Having just watched the case twice, I think Occam's Razor applies. As anyone who is or has lived with an alcoholic knows, being sober a year or 10 years or 30 years means nothing: at any moment the person can relapse. Good intentions aren't enough. Alcoholism is a disease.

To me Breaux fell off the wagon. As I know from experience, people on benders leave wallets and keys and other belongings all the time. Whether the milk disappeared is a red herring, in my judgment. The idea that a mafioso or unsavory character at an AA meeting would kidnap or extort an employee at a haberdashery in a small Louisiana town is way too far fetched. "Maybe he heard something he shouldn't have" -- well, this men or these men would've had to bump off an awful lot of AA members in Louisiana. I don't disbelieve the witnesses: they probably believe they saw him. I just see no motive for a kidnapping or murder. In fact, the fish lady strikes me as the most credible! People experiencing delirium tremens get delusional.

What's more likely -- that an alcoholic walks out of his life or that criminals kidnap him?

Believe me, I understand Breaux's daughters hanging on to their fiction. Denial is painful. But unless the police or family know details we don't we must choose the simplest outcome -- so often the case with Unsolved Mysteries episodes.

As someone who is riddled with both alcoholism (I'm sober now) and severe depression, anxiety, and panic disorder, I just want to add that there is a very high co-morbidity with addiction and mental illness.

There are a lot of possibilities with this one, but because of my own experiences, I just feel like A.J. fell off the wagon, and was terribly depressed over his "failure." When you're a recovering alcoholic and mentally ill, there is a ton of pressure to show that you've "cleaned up your life." A lot of people (most, I'd wager) seem to think that it's just a matter of growing up, pulling yourself up by the bootstraps, and deciding to live right. That is not at all how it is. It's disease, it's addiction, it's terrible, and it's not always totally within your control.

Along those lines, I've tried to kill myself, and I acted very normally before. I cleaned up and did chores first so that I'd leave less trouble behind.

I feel so sad about this case; A.J. seemed like such a sweet man, and I am so sorry for his family.

I'm sorry to hear that and glad things are better for you. I do think this is a possibility. The two witnesses that saw AJ for me are key...as well as
people who frequented the easy does it club. He could have been drinking with some people he knew. But I also wonder about the end of the segment when a witness claims to have seen someone getting abducted in the area that AJs car was found. It just seems odd to me that he would completely disappear on his own accord and never be seen again. I think it's very possible he could have relapsed but sense foul play was the factor in his disappearance/death.

Thank you for your kind words. That means a lot.

I do think you are absolutely right in pointing out your possibilities. Those scenarios could've happened just as easily. There are a few ways something could've happened to him. I just wanted to throw in my own experience, because a lot of people say things like "he was acting normally" or such, when in reality, we are often very good at hiding our feelings and troubles. Sadly, I don't think we'll ever have a true answer, as it happened so long ago, and I just wish his family could have closure.

Thanks for sharing, CJ. I wouldnt be blessed with what I have today if I hadnt sobered up myself. I haven't had a drink in 6 years. I know I won't have a drink today, but I won't know about tomorrow until tomorrow. That is if there is a tomorrow for me. There are no guarantees in this life. But now when I do wake up each morning, I tell myself that no matter what happens today, I will not pick up a drink. Many, many people with more time than myself have gone back out there and things unravel unbelievably quick. It's my belief that is what happened to AJ

Absolutely and watching the segment you can tell that his daughters had a genuine loving relationship with him. I believed their testimony and always wanted them to find closure.
