He was said to have harassed other families in distress, just not for as long. Something about his interaction with Amy's mother kept him addicted to tormenting her, the sicko!

I always thought Henry Blair was just a loon, suffering from something akin to Munchausen's by Proxy, torturing Mrs. Billig for the attention she gave him.

I have to say, I have always thought that Mrs. Billig and Mr. Nerenberg (father of Audrey, missing since 1977) were pillars of strength and the archetypes of parents of long missing children. Their constant vigilant advocacy for their children will never cease to amaze me.

Was this information communicated to the public? I don't remember reading it anywhere, although I feel it's probably true. Typical of teenagers in the 70's.

This is one of my most frustrating "try-to-figure-it-out" cases.

If you think about it, Hank Blair, probably had a lot of ties to drugs, and maybe even possibly white slavery (as suggested by an earlier poster) with his connections to South America. I think he may have been intrigued with Amy and brainwashed her into maybe doing drugs with him and/or having casual sex with him. If I try to put myself into Amy's shoes, a teenager in the 70s (which I was), I may not have told my friends for fear that they would not accept him because of his age, his looks, his job, etc. He possibly could have asked her to swear it was their secret. There seems to be too much coincidence with Hank to overlook him as a possible suspect. I do believe that the bikers were also involved. Remember, they run the drugs in their respective "territories". Also, I know for a fact that bikers do still consider women their property although I don't think swaping still occurs today. I do know that it did occur in the 70s.

What I want to know is..........Why hasn't this been made into a movie???

I just have a hard time believing that she would mention a "Hank" in her diary and then a person with the same name comes into play. Not a really common name and unless there were more than one that she was connected to....just seems odd.

from everything I have read, Billig was into drugs, particularly marijuana. This may or may not have been introduced to her by "Hank" (I tend to believe it was probably a result of peer pressure from firneds, etc) . I still believe in the motorcycle connection and believe on he rway to lunch with friends, some of the bikers spotted her (she wore roach clips in her hair) and offered her some marijuana. They then abducted her.

Yes, it is pretty much public knowledge and is referenced several times in stories on Billig.

Well, I'm 6'2 and he looks to be about 2 inches shorter.
Im always amazed when I meet wrestlers that I'm usually as tall or taller than like 80% of them.

that's cool. I was (still am) a huge Hulkamaniac, brother!. I also like Brock Lesnar (too bad his career was short), Superfly Jimmy Snuka, Bruno sammartino, Superstar Billy Graham, Ricky Steamboat, Bret Hart, Edge, etc. Who else have you met? I'm also curious to know which ones are shorter than you expected (I am 6'2" also). Iam 28 but tend to like most of the older guys better. the Rock was good on the mic but I would grow sick of him fast (he was MUCH better as a heal, IMO). I am on and off on my like for Triple H. The WWE is so saturated with him now that I'm sick of him again.
