The Creep's Videos

In an effort to preserve these for the historic record of this case, I'm reposting these videos. They were originally posted to YouTube on Valentine's Day, 2012 by a man who has used the name Alden Olson and the online avatars Beagle and 112Dirtbag.

  3. James --

    Thanks for preserving these.

    I had forgotten about the "Mr. 1974" comment. On the day that these videos were posted, a poster on Topix ("findmaura") theorized that Mr. 1974 was a reference to the Lady in the Dunes.

    The Lady in the Dunes was next referenced on Topix on July 9, 2013, by a poster named "Det. Columbo." There was absolutely no context. It was just stated randomly.

    On July 26, 2013, Alden Howes Olson posted one of his "Happy Anniversary" videos (it's still posted on youtube). July 26, 1974 is the date that the Lady in the Dunes was discovered.

    In my mind, this gives Olson's statement ("I'm Mr. 1974. I'm not Mr. 1974. I'm a private detective)new meaning.

  4. If you really want to preserve these, James, you might wanna consider backing them up elsewhere. I also have a blogger, and a few times I've had all the images/files on my site disappear, and had to go out and find new ones.

  6. Has anyone found out anything about this man? I was watching Disappeared on Discovery and there a reporter who mentions a witness seeing who she believed to be Maura with an approx. 60 year old man. Or has anyone tracked that witness down? Or get surveillance from the establishment they were "seen" at?

    1. If I trust the video 5 of 5 about Maura's disappearance, the store where the witness saw her is shows Cumberland Farms. Hoping that this rings a bell to you. I can't get the location from the video: http://www.tubeofmusic.com/?v=PP4th7xreWU

  8. One thing I always thought was creepy. 112dirtbag...dirtbag= local dirtbag, Fred Murray's adjective for who he thinks took Maura, and 112=Route 112 where Maura disappeared. Random comment on an old post, just something that popped into my head. Congrats on the book, James! Reading it now!
