The Undead Amy Biehl

Editor’s Note: Today marks the 25th anniversary of American voting rights activist and Fullbright scholar Amy Biehl’s violent death in South Africa. With South Africa already in the news over the past week a recent retrospectives have been issued by Biehl’s alma mater, Stanford University, and weeks earlier in the Los Angeles Times, the latter of which played a major role in publicizing Biehl’s apparent August 25, 1993 demise. The Biehl murder event took place at a decisive moment, as African National Congress leader Nelson Mandela’s presidential bid turned on his portrayal as a “peace candidate.”

Author and attorney Alison Maynard, a longtime reader and supporter of MHB, examines the unusual circumstances surrounding the death and establishes a case that it was likely a publicity stunt carried out by transnational forces seeking to maneuver the troubled country’s political trajectory toward certain desired ends.-JFT

By Alison Maynard

Saturday, August 25, 2018, will mark the 25thanniversary of the violent murder of American voting rights activist and Fulbright scholar Amy Biehl in South Africa.  Amy was a blond, blue-eyed Stanford graduate aged 26 when she was pulled from her car in Guguletu Township outside Cape Town on August 25, 1993.  While a mob of 300 black students shouted, “One settler, one bullet!” and “Kill the settler!” hoodlums pulled her from her car, stabbed her in the heart, and bludgeoned her head with a brick.  One day after her death, a professor of Amy’s at Stanford, Larry Diamond, pinned blame for the murder on the Pan Africanist Congress, “a relatively small, extremely militant political fringe group in the black community in South Africa … that has been more inclined to commit violence against whites.”

The Los Angeles Times on Sept. 2, 1993, recounted the heart-wrenching personal visit Melanie Jacobs, Amy’s best friend and roommate in South Africa, made on Sept. 1, 1993, to Newport Beach, California, to bring Amy’s ashes to her parents.  Melanie was accompanied by her 14-year-old daughter, Solange.  It was Melanie who identified Amy’s body after the murder.  According to the L.A. Times, Amy—amazingly–climbed into a police vehicle after being mortally injured, and was driven not to the hospital, but to the police station, where she died on the floor.  Melanie, summoned to identify the body, recognized Amy by the “clunky black shoes sticking out from under the pink blanket.”  She could not bear to look at the face.  Melanie herself died tragically from a fall from a balcony in 1998.Amy’s parents, Peter and Linda Biehl, went on after Amy’s murder to form the Amy Biehl Foundation Trust, a charitable organization committed to providing skills training, such as bread-baking and knitting, to impoverished black Africans in South Africa.

Scholarships were created in Amy’s memory all over the globe, including two Fulbrights named for her.  The Amy Biehl Foundation provided a scholarship to Solange Jacobs to study at Stanford.  The University of the Western Cape, where Amy was on the Fulbright, created the annual Amy Biehl Memorial Lecture, and a high school was named for her in Albuquerque.  Stanford University created a veritable shrine, a repository of Amy’s senior thesis and materials produced by the Biehl Foundation (although, surprisingly, only two photos of Amy).  Her Stanford thesis adviser Kennell Jackson was effusive in his praise:  Amy “knew everything about Africa” and “had been all over Africa,” including in Namibia.  Larry Diamond said he had seen her just three weeks earlier in South Africa, and had worked with her recently by telephone on the details of her admission to Rutgers University, where she was supposed to start work on a doctorate the month she was killed.

Possibly the hardest piece of news for the average American to comprehend was Linda and Peter Biehl’s almost immediate forgiveness of their daughter’s murderers.  The Biehls were lauded for their resilience.  They shook the murderers’ hands and hugged their family members.  Even more difficult to comprehend, the Amy Biehl Foundation gave two of Amy’s murderers scholarships to attend Stanford, after they were pardoned by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

At least, the foregoing is what was reported.  There are curious inconsistencies in the reportage, however.  The March 1994 Stanford Magazine article says Amy went to high school in Albuquerque, New Mexico; the L.A. Times says not only that she attended Newport Harbor High School in Newport Beach, California, but that she was valedictorian there.  The 1985 yearbook of Newport Harbor High does not even list her in the index.  The Stanford Magazine article–written (oddly) by a Sports Illustrated writer, Phil Taylor—quotes Linda Biehl as saying Amy’s ashes were “sent to us.”  Linda says again, here, that Amy’s ashes came home in an American Airlines bag.  But no—they were personally delivered by Melanie Jacobs, weren’t they?  Solange, now 36, remembers that she and her mother were so mobbed by press on that trip, they were escorted by airport personnel through a tunnel at Heathrow.More inquiries pulled up more things, making this story start to smell like old tuna casserole from the back of the fridge.  The official list of Fulbright winners does not contain the name “Amy Biehl.”  She was not a Fulbright scholar, therefore, despite the New York Times, Los Angeles Times–and other publications around the world–insisting that she was.  There is no death certificate for Amy, either in the United States or in South Africa.

As an American citizen, she would have had a Social Security number, and her death would have been reported in the Social Security Death Index; but she is not listed on the SSDI.  She was never registered as a student at the University of the Western Cape.  She never had a California driver’s license, even though she registered to vote in California both in 1986 and 1992, and listed 647 Irvine Ave., Newport Beach, California as her permanent residence in a 1991 application to the State Department.

There is an autopsy report prepared on August 26, 1993, but this document does not bear her name, nor state her hair and eye color.  It describes her physique as “small”–5’4½” and 117 lbs–although Solange Jacobs, who lived with Amy for ten months, says she was 5’6” or 5’7”.  The report was signed by the state pathologist for South Africa, Gideon Knobel, M.D., the son of a former Nationalist Party member of Parliament.  It mentions only one stab wound.  In October 1993, Knobel added an addendum to address an odd dissection of “Amy Biehl’s brain” two months after her cremated remains had been delivered to her parents.  This addendum bears the only mention of the name “Amy Biehl” in the report.

The South African Police produced almost nothing in response to requests for records—and the photos it did provide do not indicate that any crime, at all, occurred.  No pictures of a body, no blood, not even the “mustard yellow Mazda” Amy supposedly drove and was pulled out of (described in the court judgment as “beige”).  The SAP refused access to witness statements, because to provide them would constitute “too large a diversion of resources.”  It also withheld autopsy photos, because it wishes to protect the public from such “graphic photos” and to “protect the human dignity of the parents and family.”

After a year and a half of effort I was provided none of the records from the trial which was held, resulting in—four convictions, as evidenced by the applications for amnesty to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and reported by the L.A. Times in 1998?  Or was it three, as a Stanford press release reported in 1994?  The L.A. Times told us in 1993 that only three suspects were taken to trial.  So, three defendants; four convictions.  Whatever, the convictions were based on confessions and secret evidence taken by the judge from unnamed witnesses in a non-jury trial.  The L.A. Times took care, however, to report the horrifying laughter which burst from the gallery during the trial, when a prosecution witness described the vicious stabbing of Amy Biehl.

The people laughing may have known something L.A. Times readers didn’t:  that the whole thing was a hoax.  Most problematic for the official story is that there is a person who shares Amy Elizabeth Biehl’s date of birth (April 26, 1967) and address of 647 Irvine Ave., Newport Beach, California, named Amy Elizabeth Byrd.  In November 2014 Amy Elizabeth Byrd came up in Intelius and similar services as “associated with” Amy Elizabeth Biehl, as well as Amy Biehl’s father Peter, mother Linda, sister Molly Corbin, and brother Zach Biehl; along with several Byrds.  In January 2016, Intelius added the helpful detail “Stanford” to Amy Byrd’s profile, as well as the name “William Biehl,” Amy’s grandfather.  There are two other addresses it gives for Amy E. Byrd, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Warrenton, Missouri.  At these addresses, too, she is listed as associated with Amy E. Biehl.

So it appears Amy is alive.  She just got married and changed her name.

Walking in the Shoes of the Hoaxsters

Peter J. Biehl, who died at age 59 in 2003, met and married Linda while a student at Whittier College in California in the 1960’s.  At Whittier, his passion was acting and he appeared in several student productions.  His dramatic experience would be an obvious plus in his later role as the father of a murdered female activist.

Peter had an amazing career.  He took his young family to Tucson, Arizona, as is apparent from Amy’s second-grade class picture at “Harelson School, Tucson,” included in the Stanford Magazine article.  As a newly minted college grad and father in 1967, Peter became employed in the company headed by his dad, Fry Consultants, Inc., the Southwest regional office—and Peter rose to head it, himself.  Then, Peter became the CEO of American Atomics in Tucson, which made luminous watch dials.  He ran into trouble in 1979 when the company was tied to tritium-contaminated food in school lunchrooms.  Tritium-contaminated food??  Huge amounts of tritium were unaccounted for.  Arizona governor Bruce Babbitt had to order the National Guard in.  How this could happen was never explained, any more than was the placing of drama major Peter Biehl at the helm of American Atomics.

So the Biehls, along with American Atomics, evaporated from Tucson.  At some point, Peter and Linda became associated with three different residence addresses in Newport Beach, California (Orange County), as well as one in La Quinta, CA (Riverside County).  At all four they accumulated a huge pile of tax liens, both from the IRS and the State of California.  There are also releases recorded after 1993 for most of those liens.  Strangely, no deeds come up in Peter and Linda’s names for any of the Orange County addresses, including 647 Irvine Ave. and 9 Kamalii Court in Newport Beach, which Amy used for voting registration in 1986 and 1992.

Amy also gave 647 Irvine Ave. as her permanent address in her 1989 passport application.  How can there be liens in Peter and Linda’s names recorded against properties they did not have title to?  Of course there can’t. Although Orange County property records prior to 1982 are not available online, there are no deeds from 1983 to 2016, either, showing these properties were ever conveyed away.  And, according to this letter, Amy was in high school in Santa Fe in 1985!  The liens must be bogus, which makes it highly probable the releases functioned as a payoff mechanism, convenient because the payor is not identified.  So much for the investigatory acumen of the Los Angeles Times reporters.  They sure missed the boat.  Except:  the L.A. Times was on the boat.  Consider these sly headlines, “Life After Death” and “Biehl’s Living Legacy.”  Stanford University was on the boat, too.

Maybe Peter’s most important role in life was to take the missing tritium to Los Alamos.  And maybe that’s why he died of cancer at age 59.  But at this point I am connecting dots rather far off the page.  Sure, there could be lots of reasons why the Biehls moved to Santa Fe!  Or was it Albuquerque?  Or Newport Beach?  Whatever.

Peter’s brother, David “Larry” Biehl, had a role to play.  Larry is an investment adviser who appeared regularly on “Wall Street Week” in the 1980’s.  Those appearances stopped in 1987.  Larry is a Stanford graduate, too.  It would appear he is the “money man” for the Amy Biehl Foundation, since he resides in San Marcos, California, where the foundation is based.  Larry is a founder of the “Da Vinci Society,” whose website, after my first inspection of it, a few days later came up “Page Not Found.”  In a preface he wrote on behalf of the Da Vinci Society for someone else’s book, he talked about “transpartisanship,” a word I had never encountered before.

But there is another Larry interested in “transpartisanship,” that being Larry Jay Diamond, the Stanford professor—who, in fact, is not listed in the Stanford Yearbook of 1989, the year Amy graduated, so maybe he never knew Amy Biehl at Stanford, at all.  In fact, when asked for an interview, he denied knowing Amy very well.

Diamond’s name may be prophetic, because South Africa is all about diamonds, and gold.  The Stanford professor has been involved in “democracy movements” not only in Africa, but all over the world.  Importantly, he is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Rockefeller-funded and-operated think tank which controls the major U.S. media outlets.  The CFR tells the Central Intelligence Agency and State Department what to do.

The Fulbright Foundation has also been pegged as a CIA front, which explains why it would go along with the false information that Amy had won a Fulbright fellowship.  It is fair to say Larry Diamond is more interested in regime change in the service of corporate interests than in actual democracy, therefore.  For example, he “served as the inspiration” for a documentary which went viral, entitled “I am a Ukrainian,” purporting to be a grass roots production but, in reality, linked to “shadowy NGO’s that have been directly involved in starting phony ‘color revolutions’ in the past.”

Conclusion

The conclusion is inescapable that the Biehls are a spook family.   More evidence is the company both William and Peter worked for in Tucson, George Fry & Associates–“Fry Consultants, Inc.” by 1968–represented vaguely as a “management and marketing firm.” George Fry, listed in “10,000 Famous Freemasons,” was a partner in spy contractor Booz, Fry, Allen & Hamilton, now Booz Allen Hamilton, owned by the Carlyle Group.  Booz Allen Hamilton was Edward Snowden’s employer.  Under William Joseph Biehl’s stewardship the company had 250 of Fortune Magazine’s “Top 500” companies for clients, a remarkable achievement which can only with difficulty be conceived as the result of simple hard work.

As for Amy, maybe she was truly passionate about Africa and felt the permanent erasure of her identity was worth it, to “further democracy.”  Phil Taylor and Kennell Jackson, Jr., both black men, might similarly have played along in the belief they were furthering a noble cause.  That cause would be the first multiracial elections in South Africa, set for April 27, 1994—and specifically, victory for the ANC.  The dead girl’s birthday fell on April 26th, the day before, providing an opportunity to bring it up all over again, to remind the electorate about Amy Biehl the dedicated white activist murdered by the Pan Africanist Students’ Organization, while the voting was going on.  The CIA wanted the people, 17 million of whom were black Africans voting for the first time, to give a mandate to Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress, presented as the peace candidates (despite their own extensive history of violence).  It did this at least in part by portraying the Pan-Africanist Congress as the murderers of Amy Biehl.

It is beyond the scope of this article to examine to what extent Mandela and the ANC were creatures of the CIA, but it is clear, in retrospect, that they were–and are.  Patrick Bond, a South African economist, has analyzed the ANC’s role in permitting the largest companies, such as Anglo-American and DeBeers, to change their location of ownership from Johannesburg to London, causing an irretrievable currency crash.  While ANC chiefs ride around in limousines, 35% of South Africans are unemployed, struggling with high crime rates, frequent power outages, and substandard education and health care.  As dozens of striking mine workers executed in cold blood by ANC goons in 2012 found out, you stand up for your rights in South Africa, you die.

Despite the U.S. government’s profession of anti-apartheid goals, American corporate interests were always entwined with the Nationalist Party—the Afrikaners.  The CIA’s desire, and strategy, would be to protect and perpetuate the privileges these economic interests enjoyed under Nationalist Party rule, even while creating the illusion of a huge shift to majority rule.  The CIA would not stand idly by, to only passively observe such a momentous event as this 1994 election, which might jeopardize the interests of American and multinational corporations.

It is well within the ambit of known CIA behavior to concoct psy ops such as the “murder of Amy Biehl by the PAC” to influence the election.  The bimonthly trips made by CIA asset Linda Biehl to South Africa in connection with the Amy Biehl Foundation later, not to mention the $500,000 initial grant to it, also ought to raise a few eyebrows.  Is she smuggling diamonds?  I’m not making that comment in jest.  That tunnel at Heathrow may be used to evade customs.

In particular, now we know why it was so easy for Linda and Peter Biehl to be “resilient,” and forgive their daughter’s murderers.  There was no murder to forgive.

  1. Don’t really understand your question, since Boers are Afrikaners. But I think you mean, how does it benefit the former white ruling members of the Nationalist Party.

    Those wielding power behind the scenes don’t care who is killed as long as they continue to hold the reins of economic power. Doesn’t matter if the figureheads are black or white.

    By the way, the New York Times had only one small mention of Amy Biehl in its issue today (Aug. 25), in “Today in History.” So looks like they are busy burying this scam.

    1. Alison, could you explain succinctly how Amy’s death and her parents’ ostentatious forgiving of her murderers (or alleged) helped the ruling Nationalist Party?

      You don’t really say in your essay how such a display bettered their cause. Certainly your proofs of the incident’s inauthenticity seem convincing and valid, but can you boil down how it was good PR?

      I’m a blondish/light blue eyed woman who at Amy’s age endured a fair amount of violence from black men in dangerous american urban environments so perhaps the message is clouded for me.

      I’ve always thought the Biehls’ behavior bizarre, like lots of people I’d suppose.

      Boers are a subset of Afrikaners upon refreshing my memory via google – mostly dutch farmers. I’d say the city-dwelling Afrikaners are of higher economic class and include jews. There has to be significant class and ethnic tension between the two groups.

      Offering Amy up on the altar of ‘progress’ likely mollified the black population’s desire for revenge and free stuff.

      Sorry if that offends you, Alison, but this has to be the case. Your essay is excellent detective work and insight into a certain political dimension but you’re sort of ignoring an entire different level I think.

      1. Thanks for your kind words, Sue. I didn’t mean to imply that the Biehl caper, and apparent (as opposed to real) transition to majority rule, benefited the Nationalist Party. I meant to imply that it benefited the bankers and resource extractors.

  2. I wrote about the several thousand SA farmer murders in my local paper in LTTE. Before they published it, they didn’t believe me and asked for documentation. So I sent the Editor a youtube link that showed the President of SA Zuma leading a large Mob singing of a banned song titled “Shoot the Boer/Kill the Farmer”. His second in command Julius Malema is shown acting out the machine gunning farmers part in mime. It was surreal and frightening. It simply left no doubt that the ANC supports murdering White Farmers, even if not actively involved in it. Many indications are that it’s both. High tech cell phone jamming gear is used. Most attacks occur late at night in remote areas. Senior citizen farmers are often the targets of choice. The horrific ways these farmers are killed usually involves gang rape and torture of all age groups and genders. Often nothing is robbed except for the guns and a vehicle. One girl was raped from midnight until dawn. One father’s eye lids were cut off so he couldn’t close his eyes while his daughters and wife were raped and tortured. Children drowned in scalding hot water. Hot clothes irons have been used to torture and broken bottles to rape. You would be really fortunate if you were merely shot to death during one of these attacks.

    Everything you heard about that peaceful rainbow race love fest is a savage lie. These people are barbarians of the highest magnitude. They have no knowledge of SA’s actual history, that no Black tribes were native to SA, only a small brown tribe related to the Kalhari Bushmen in “The Gods Must Be Crazy” movie and the Dutch settlement occurred long before the marauding Zulus invaded. The Blacks in charge of South Africa have institutionalized racism toward the White Population in a way that Apartheid never dared inflict on Blacks when they ran the show. There’s now half a million Whites living in abject squalor. The Blacks did zero to lift the Black population out of poverty, except for their political cronies who live the life of luxury and privilege. But they did manage to drag half a million whites down to living in shacks and begging for scraps in just 23 years of calling the shots. The formerly first world country of SA is now a cess pit of lawlessness. The Johannesburg Airport staff were implicated in the “follow home robberies”. Airport staff was profiling the travelers as targets for robbery when the arrived home. The paper published the locations of the most likely places to get car jacked. 13 of them were close to the airport. If you encounter the Police, they are as likely to be criminals as the general population. One woman reported a rape to police and was raped again, by the police she reported it to.

    The president sings about killing White Farmers

    ANC opposition leader Malema says he is not calling for the slaughter of Whites at least for now
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrrlLQFbVOs

    They still believe in Witch Doctors over there. Their suggested cure for AIDS is to go rape a virgin, a White one preferably and the younger the better chance of being an actual virgin.

  3. A very young Peter Biehl running American Atomics Corporation in Tucson is a story all to itself. Radioactive tritium leaked from the plant into a school kitchen, a senior citizen center and swimming pools while Biehl denied any problems. On July 4, 1979 even NYT published a decent story on the leak at American Atomics.

    The work Sunny did on the circumstances around Amy Biehl’s “death” is one of a kind. No other researcher worth his or her salt ever questioned the official story.

    This is from Palm Spring’s Desert Sun:
    Desert Sun, Number 360, 27 September 1979
    Guardsmen seize atomic substance Tucson actions called ‘crazy’
    https://cdnc.ucr.edu/cgi-bin/cdnc?a=d&d=DS19790927.2.37

    1. Here is the article from the link provided by Anne Berg. Looks like the inmates had taken over the asylum that day.

      Desert Sun, Number 360, 27 September 1979 — Guardsmen seize atomic substance Tucson actions called ‘crazy’ [ARTICLE] Quote:

      “Guardsmen seize atomic substance Tucson actions called ‘crazy’
      TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) Acting on Gov, Bruce Babbitt’s orders, National Guardsmen have entered the American Atomics Corp. plant and seized radioactive tritium in an action the company called “absolutely crazy.” The company said Babbitt’s order for guardsmen to pack and remove the radioactive substance could endanger Tucson residents. The plant, which used tritium to make luminous watch dials and signs, was shut down in June after $300,000 worth of food intended for school children was found to be exposed to radiation. Babbitt said the company was moving too slowly to decommission the plant, and said he was afraid security problems might pose dangers that could end with the release of radiation. The company has maintained that the levels of radiation involved do not pose any hazard. And Wednesday, Babbitt said American Atomics attorney Harold C. Warnock reiterated “his oft-repeated position that nothing is wrong and that the whole situation is a red herring.” The $500,000 worth of tritium, much of it inside glass tubes, will be removed to a location as yet undetermined for burial, processing or release. “Don’t worry, it (the site) will be identified when it’s picked within 24 to 48 hours,” Babbitt said. “There’s no special secrecy attached to this operation.” The order came as a surprise, since the company agreed July 11 in hearings before the Arizona Atomic Energy Commission to surrender its license to handle tritium and to decommission its plant in 100 days. Babbit said there had been a break-in about a week before his order and that the plant lacked effective security. “The fire protection was jury-rigged and in the event of fire or a breach of security it would have put a community of 500,000 people at risk of exposure to enormous masses of tritium,” he said. American Atomic president Peter J. Biehl blamed red tape for the delayed decommissioning. Tom Caffarella, Biehl’s assistant, refused to stay at the plant after state officials and Tucson police arrived. He called the order “absolutely crazy” and said he feared someone could push the wrong valve. “You bet I’m going,” he said. “I’m leaving because they have people running this thing who don’t know what they’re doing. It’s like a Nazi camp in here.””

    2. Ha, Anne, you are a jewel, and thanks for your kind words. I actually uncovered photos concerning the Biehls from the Tucson Daily Sun from the early 1960’s which I did not link to in the article, such as about William Biehl’s beautiful home and little Amy celebrating Christmas.

      It’s occurred to me that “ordinary people” (i.e., without connections to intelligence) don’t get this kind of publicity. I think it is a kind of reward for doing official favors.

  4. A great investigation. A lot has been made of the Biehls’ willingness to forgive Amy’s “killers.” Could this be the original forgiveness template that is now used so extensively in all the staged mass shootings/terrorist events? It surfaced with Columbine and has been a major feature of fake operations ever since. The “Forgiveness Project,” founded by Dame Anita Roddick and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, might merit review.

  5. I’m very sorry but I simply do not believe that Amy Biehl’s death was a hoax, as the article asserts.
    The main evidence adduced here consists of Intellius data profiles. These sorts of free computer compilations are notoriously unreliable. They tend to conflate persons with the same or very similar names and mix their data together. Intellius tries to reconstruct a life history for everybody. But what if somebody dies? The computer doesn’t know to do – it just provides more data from other sources. For Amy Biehl/Byrd, the computer says she moved back to her apartment in Wash DC after she died, and also maintained her Newport Beach CA address. Does that make any sense? If you faked your death, would you move back to your same addresses? Of course not. Probably what happened is that the computer saw no records from Amy Biehl after 1993 and so added information from her past and another Amy Biehl or Amy E., and may have relied on a Byrd/Biehl connection somewhere else.
    The author also mentions a number of details hinting at a CIA connection. But if you look at these details carefully they amount to nothing. The Biehls came from Southern California in the 60’s and 70’s where almost everybody in the upper middle class had some connection with dirty defense industry money.

    The Biehls are/were “do-gooders” (the precursors to modern-day Social Justice Warriors) who actually believed strongly in social causes. Not only Peter, Linda, and Amy, but also another uncle who worked to build a long hiking trail across several states. The family’s reaction to Amy’s death makes no sense to me (anger or resignation would be the proper feelings) but it looks like they really did believe in the cause and probably thought doing the “right thing” would give meaning to Amy’s life. And they were no doubt exploited by the pro-Mandela forces, including the US Government (who may as a small gesture of thanks have released the tax liens on the Biehls.) Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Biehls have had a decent living from the Amy Fund and working and speaking as professional “voices of reconciliation” since 1993 until now.
    If there was a hoax here, it might be that the US Government and pro-Mandela forces planned the death of Amy Biehl in order to blame the radical faction – but that question wasn’t raised by the author.
    I remember seeing this news about Biehl when it came out in the Stanford Alumni Magazine, and there was some debate on campus afterwards – mostly it was false piety but some (who I agreed with) said that she was poking her nose around where it didn’t belong.

    1. Looks like you are a graduate of Stanford!

      Amy never lived in Newport Beach, California, nor did her parents. There are no deeds to any property there–only bogus liens and releases–and Amy was in high school in Santa Fe in 1985. She never lived at the address on her passport application, 647 Irvine Ave. So when the computer shows she “moved back to DC while maintaining the California address,” well, that is evidence supporting MY thesis: 647 Irvine was “maintained” by someone else in her name. It may be some kind of safe house maintained by the CIA. There were other anomalies in the chain of title I did not go into in my post.

    2. Just wanted to add that even if the Biehl/Byrd connection did not pan out (and I think it does), there is substantial proof that Amy did not die. No death certificate, autopsy report does not bear her name (or match her physical description), no entry in SSDI, no identification of the body, and other details like her standing up after being mortally wounded and stepping over a fence to get into a police van, then to be driven to the police station instead of the hospital. So we could also say: no one to declare her dead.

      1. Alison why the hell are you working for halbig? Seriously that’s not what I thought you were about. But you have been chasing conspiracies a lot more lately. I guess you are cashing in your credibility now… sad

        Good job svbob- I thought the same thing about intelius. Easy to see that there’s nothing to see here.

        Alison, good luck making money on conspiracy theorists.

        1. There doesn’t appear to be a meaningful contribution here, other than blowing smoke and name-calling well after the contributor addressed
          SVBob’s concerns.

  6. Hearts and hands (as in the Amy Foundation logo) featured prominently in the Sandy Hook hoax as well (Sandy Hook Promise logo). Following that event, there was also a “love & forgiveness” movement touted by major media and seen on the passive, resigned, even cheerful faces of the parents. “We Choose Love,” was the slogan. The Unity Project, founded by Newtown’s Dr. John Woodall, went into overdrive. “Your tears are proof of your love,” he’s quoted as saying. Love of what? Not of the truth, that’s for certain.

    1. Good points. Can anyone NOT find that creepy? These campaigns seem designed to divert attention from the deficient evidence.

      They tell us to “choose love” as a substitute for choosing HONESTY in our public officials and a real investigation as opposed to a cover-up!
