My mother was adopted and has this mentality. It's made my life difficult attempting to track down her birth family, though with assistance of 23andme and other DNA testing.. I've found who her mother was and am now in contact with someone who is from the same genetic line as her father, it would appear.. So.. I suspect I may be able to narrow that person down in the next few months.

Eyewitness testimony can be flawed for a wide variety of reasons, one of them being transference. Often a witness might be talking about something that happened the day before or after the crime.

A good example of this phenomenon is in the wake of the OKC Bombing, the investigators were able to trace the bumper of the U-Haul truck McVeigh used back to a specific dealership. Naturally, they went to the dealership to talk to the guy who had been there and rented out the truck. The dealer told him what he knew about McVeigh, but unintentionally caused trouble when he said that some other guy had come in with McVeigh. They did track the other guy down, but it turned out he had been at the dealership the day BEFORE McVeigh, and could produce receipts proving this and proving he was nowhere near OKC when the bombing happened.

In all likelihood the dealer in question wasnít acting out of malice. Itís just at the moment the investigators visited, there was a lot of pressure on the dealer to give whatever information he could, not just from the authorities, but from himself as well. The guy probably wanted to do everything he could to help, and wound up unintentionally transposing his memory of the other guy, placing him at the wrong day and time.

I kind of guess that something similar was at work with Lisa Marie Kimmell. The people who reported about seeing her car likely wanted to do whatever they could to help and as a result, they transposed stuff they had witnessed. As for the license plate, maybe a few days ago while on the road, they saw a car that looked just like Lisaís, save for the plate. Then they watched a broadcast or heard something about the case and transferred the fact about the license plate onto the car from their memories.

Regarding the Brazos River Attack, could someone point me towards some materials regarding the case? I kind of want something more extensive than what the wiki has on it.

Georgia Rudolph--it has been discussed at length what a faker she was and someone even had a website about her lies on other cases. One of the most beautifully filmed UM segments, too.

Did we definitely decide that fish guy was faking but his wife believed it and went on UM?

As far as I know, there was never an update on this. I usually liked the "Lost Love" segments, but this one was a bit too much.
Yes, I was just going to mention that one. I believe the last name was Parker or Palmer and there was a family story about an ancestor cutting the tassel off the sultan's slipper or the like. The double had additional details of the same story. If it had been real should have brought a huge family reunion out of the woodwork. We all said, "WHAT?" when he said the double had the same last name!

I was totally also going to say Jim Boumgarden but I guess the twin was real and REALLY didn't want to associate with the family! Wonder what was up with that.

Craig Williamson.

I believe that.. Whether other people do or not is obviously up to them.

as i mentioned before, perhaps in this topic.. With the benefit of hindsight, you can go back and look at some of the newspaper interviews done prior to him disappearing and it's all Christine.

They had only known each other a month before getting married. I think he found out that he was in a situation he didn't want to be in and hatched this plan.. Thought he could slip away, she'd think he was dead and he'd live out a quiet life down in south Florida.

Hatched and slip away...that's good.

Sheesh, that sounds like so much work in regards to something that could have been solved so quickly and easily.

"You know, we've only been going together a month. Maybe we should slow things down a bit, postpone the wedding and see where our relationship take us."

Boom! Problem solved.

I can't say he was or was not faking. But that's such an easier situation to get out of than others. I can kind of understand someone with a criminal record getting desperate and faking amnesia. But this is such an extreme over a 4 week relationship. Nobody would logically fault him for wanting to slow things down.

Agreed.. But I think you have two personalities that led directly to this. Christine, I think, was a very up front, controlling person. Not necessarily in a bad way.. It's just she pushed strong for what she wanted.

Craig was a laid back, take life as it happens person who seemed quite meek.

I'm willing to bet, and I have no info that I am right, just a feeling.. The getting married was Christine's idea. The fish farm might have been Craig's original idea, but the moving forward and setting it up.. Christine.

Again, I have no inside knowledge, it's just my belief based on reading articles prior to the disappearance that are just all Christine. They have pics and you see them together, but in the articles.. Not one word from Craig. Like he didn't even exist.

I tried searching for Craig, just to see if he's still alive.. I couldn't turn anything up on him. I would suspect he's still in the south Florida area. Be interested to see if Craig and Christine are 'still friends'. Last I heard, she had remarried again and was living out west somewhere.

The UM wiki page says he moved to California to stay with friends and Christine moved to Wyoming to start a new life. But that was 1995. They could have lived anywhere else since then.

If Craig is alive today, he would be 75.

We've seen so many spousal murders on these shows happen instead of just getting a divorce that I find it not at all surprising that Fish Guy was just an elaborate escape plan (and I've never thought it was anything but that).

Yeah.. And the guy has every right to privacy, as does Christine. I'd just be interested to hear what's gone on in the past 20 years.

Well.. before he was found.. I thought it might have been legitimate that he was attacked and killed. But once he turned up working as a diver in Key West, FL..

That's a contemporary news article from when he was found. Just all sounds.. Fishy.

All the people that were convinced that their relatives were INFAMOUS KILLERS. The three I can think of Black Dahlia, the Green River Killer, Boston Strangler. Right or wrong they just got on my nerves.

Craig Williamson just lit out on his wife.

I always got the feeling Williamson wanted out of the marriage without breaking Chrisitne's heart. So, in a way, he had good intentions?
