Storytelling and the Science of Love With Helen Fisher
"Thanks again for talking with us today. Thinking about your trajectory. Why did you decide to become an anthropologist. In the first place is so interesting. Because i grew up in a glass house was don't by one of the harvard. Five right up the road philip. Johnson's fan says. When i was six seven and eight years old i used to sneak into the woods and sit on an old stonewall and watch my neighbors eat. Dinner always watched table always. I've been fascinated with by watching people and by the continuity between men and based and identical twin and even as a small child everybody would ask the questions like. Do you like the same food. Have the same friends to get the cavities in your teeth. Do you think like which. I thought was a very strange question at the time now. I don't know as so long before. I knew there was a nature nurture issue. I knew there was biology to behavior because of my childhood because everybody asks identical twins what they have in common. And so i already had that and as i say i used to sit in the woods and watch my neighbors eat dinner. I remember in graduate school. I went to a party. Native set up a camera against some another apartment building next door. And i want to spend an hour watching a man smoke his pipe and this watching this patient motions in the ways is moved Focused was so. i'm just always been anthropologist. And then i remember. I was in college and i was in the study smoker. The basement and i had a girlfriend to walk ins at helen. You'll really like anthropology. Because you are apologised. Oh as so. She pointed out to me. And i took every single. I didn't even take the beginning course. I just took whatever they had. And one of the things about it as you don't have to start or at least i did with a big overview. I took peoples of africa. I took archaeology peoples of indonesia. Whatever it was primate behavior without ever know some of the basics. And you can pick up all that very rapidly if you registered so there's always been in anthropologist and somebody finally pointed the field out to me and i've always been interested in the nature part of nature and nurture.

"Squiggly" Careers and the End of the Traditional Path
"When we met at university twenty years ago. We made for unlikely friends. I'm an extrovert. Who gets involved in. Everything talks to anyone. And i'm introverted. Ideas person. he finds verts energizing but a bit intimidating. Despite our differences we both had an ambition to climb the ladder and have a successful career. We were motivated by how far and how fast we could progress and in those first few years of work. We were all about promotions and pay rises. We're preoccupied by the positions that we held in how senior job title sounded and on the surface. Everything seemed to be on track but we started to get this sense that the ladder might actually be holding back. The obvious next step wasn't always the most appealing and we were both excited about exploring opportunities. That weren't necessarily based on what we've done before it wasn't what we'd anticipated but our careers started to look and feel much more like squiggly. A squiggly career is both full of uncertainty and full of possibility. Change is happening all the time. Some of it is in our control. And some of it's not success isn't one-size-fits-all squiggle. Indigent as we are and for me. That's meant a career where i've moved from working on foldable credit cards in one company. They didn't catch on building and launching a loyalty app for another and that one is still going on. I've made from making magazines to working on feed waste from a five to four day week so i could spend more time on personal projects and volunteering. I've already had more jobs more organizations than my dad. And he's been working for twice as long as i have and i'm the rule not the exception

How to Be Sad in a Healthy Way with Helen Russell
"Tell me about this new book of yours and a podcast. Because i was looking at it. This is slightly different because we'll slotting or maybe not so how to be sad. Yes so i so. I've been now researching into happiness for the last eight years and reedy will be academic literature and speaking to as many experts. Get my hands on and really following the growing movement in in. I guess i don't wanna quite use the attempt self-help but this idea of of what we can do. And how we can observe our in culture of cultures around the world to try to give us the best chance of of keeping mental health intact and Keeping ourselves feeling upbeat on a daily basis. But actually the more it was simplified perhaps for sound bites off line or the more The the the rest of the world decision economic climate was was not perhaps doing any of us any favors The movie becomes clung onto this idea of happiness. That in the last few years. When i have talked around the world when i've done interviews with people and i collected my own research as well as reading the research of others. It seemed to me that there was so much anxiousness about not being happy. The procedure happiness to become all encompassing. And actually people will quite phobic of being sad and this seems like a problem because of course we can't be happy all the time We can put structural things in place. We can lifestyle things in place to try to shore up our chances and to try to look after ourselves but no one is happy all the time. Sadness is a normal part of life. I felt more. If we try and deny sadness we do ourselves huge home and sadness actually can also bring some benefits so that that really set me to thinking. I think researching the atmosphere happiness. My my last book you mention Looking different cultural purchase. I realized this in the us and the uk a especially there is a real reluctance to to do. Saddest studies. show that but americans are kind of out lies in that design not to be sad unto to choose happiness and to to be happy to put on this kind of jazz hunts front which as we certainly seen in the last year if not the last forty five years life through some huge challenges Away and You know the state of the world. Even there is much to be sad about the things to be angry about and that has to be okay to we have to be in touch with those emotions too so i wanted to really explore that from a cultural perspective from a historical perspective And speaking to you near scientists and psychologists geneticists and and really trying to understand the processes that are going on and the noble phases that we go into when we tried to deny us address and then what to do about them and how to be sad in a healthy positive way so that was my goal. Yes the knee. I was really intrigued. When i was reading a book. About the difference of cultures and things like portugal and brazil and bhutan. Where you know sadness and crying and you know. Death is celebrated its part of the normal circle of life. Then perhaps where i come from in finland we are very stone faced and we don't cry outside of the family circles and some does not at all even front of our parents or parents. Don't cry front of the children. It's very much these macho kind of culture. So what can we learn from these other cultures. What can we put in place in our cultures in our societies to help us to deal with sadness and it be normal circle of life. Yeah i think it is. That is that normalizing. It is talking about it. It's it's showing children that it's okay to be sad and that they will be sad sometimes and not trying to minimize that so certainly when i was growing up in uk. Those idea that if you're crying you're told it's okay. Don't cry at so easy for them out to cry but actually we'll probably charges crying for a reason and that reason may not be the same as it would if it was an adult but to deny a child's feelings doesn't set a great template for somebody being emotionally intelligent in later life and being in touch with their emotions so it starting at a really early age letting children know that their feelings are okay and they are legitimate and how to handle them really I think parents can can model to kids. And and anyone who's spent time with children comodal that And then it is yeah. It's i spoke to a A few psychology said things like that they will recommend if you see a dead animal for example. You see roadkill even you. You don't try and hide it from your children. You sort of say. Oh that's uh sad. Isn't it look fox has been over or whatever And it's just being june two to the sadness that's that we feel and then once we adults if we didn't have that growing up then it's learning to kind of regulate our own emotions in doing it belatedly which is harder but it is possible by allowing time for ourselves and really sitting without sadness rather than trying to rush and lives with business and activities and scheduling things that defer the sadness. Because it's not going to go away but they differ it and this year i think has shown for many of us as the world has slowed down and we haven't been able to travel many of us That people people have really kind of had to come to terms of things that perhaps they have pushed away for for many years and that's hugely challenging. You used to doing that so there are things that you can do to help. Of course things like Getting exercise we know that that's good for positive mental health and bodies but are not doing. It is is bad for us so more than in terms of just exercise it if if people who feeling generally okay are sedentary between three and seven days we will start to develop low mood that some fascinating research about this. It's it's the meat was about trying to stop normal sadness from becoming a two. And b tipping over into something more serious and i'm very keen to differentiate of course between normal sadness that we all experience depression and i've been now with both of them and they are not the same thing but there is there is evidence to suggest that we can start normal fatness into something more serious by allowing for it and handling it in a mall helpful way.

In view of coronavirus restrictions, The police are facing widespread criticism for their handling of the vigil. Yes. Phillips from the opposition Labor Party is the shadow domestic violence Minister. I think that the police got it wrong at every single turn. The police did not try and find a way.

There are a million ways that that could have been organized with the police put their foot down on every stage. They made the wrong call news

Personalization: How to Get Buy-In From Leadership
"Real quick one but i get asked this question a lot. Hey christina yes. Personalization works sometimes. It can take a little bit longer if you get down this rabbit hole of research. But how do i get my team. And more importantly my leadership to understand the importance of personalization and so with this really goes back to really. The root of the question is how do i justify the time. I'm spending verses making fifty calls. Maybe i'm taking you know ten fifteen minutes per prospect really personalizing my outreach to try to get a higher return. And here's what i usually say. First and foremost don't piss off your leadership. We all have different goals. We all have different metrics that were held by their their for reason. So keep doing what you need to do. Fight the good game. What i usually tell people to do is whether it's on this side or you know kind of looping in your leadership team and say. Hey i'm going to keep hitting my metrics but i just want you to know. I think it's really important to test this new method of outreach takes a little bit more time but i am more than happy to carve out some time in test this on. Let's just say twenty five to fifty prospects right. I will present the data to you. Leadership team on was this fruitful. Doesn't make sense for maybe me to test this a little bit more and then it could turn into a situation where your leadership team is like. Hey all right you're onto something. How about you kind of go all in on that. We think it might be fruitful. Let's keep the rest of the team moving until he kinda flush this out some more. So i say there's two things here you know. Don't be afraid to kind of stand up. And say hey. I think it might make sense to test this. And here's why and here's helen. Going to test it without detracting away from my core responsibilities but to also be able to make that internal business case right and if it turns out that you have to go and do that at night. I prospect at night. Sometimes it's the best time. It's the quietest time if it turns out. You have to run that test at night and then kind of piggyback and ask for forgiveness and say hey i did this over the course at three nights this week. It's been really fruitful. I've booked x amount of meetings gotten this many replies etc and do it

Revamping the Customer Onboarding Experience with Mark Colgan
"Us a little bit a little bit more about Speak on podcast and also the product on boarders. Just you know. what do you guys do with. What's your ideal customer. Look like in in whatever you do provide to sure so with the respond pocus It's an agency so we have a team of dedicated booking agents in what we do. Is we help customers. Get on the podcast with a Already listening to so we do a ton of research to find the most relevant poll coughs reach out to the poco space with really really specific introductions. We to use web pitches. Because i know you've been. He has put cost you. Get lots of pitches. Every day we do our best to stand out from It's not aggressive sales it's overrated accumbens of of my experience with outbound sales on the matchmaking used to recruitment as well so accustomed to sign up with us. When we guarantee a certain amount of bookings on each month and we have a guaranteed to say you can say not any focused if it's not the right fit and i think it's only happened twice in it was downs more of a personal preference than anything else. That's what we do at speaking folks with the product borders is also like a productized service Me in the found the helen. We saw a need that a lot of people dry. There's a lot of content around lead generation and top of the funnel acquisition. But the but there's just not that much of a focus on activation and also turned reduction. so they're obviously. Some is some content out there but it's a minority compared to the top of the funnel staff so we decided to put our heads together and what we do. We offer a product on building review. So we go through a b. two b. companies free trial experience looking at things like the website will looking at the sign up process. I run experienced as what is the ongoing onboarding on the on boarding emails as well. We just present these back in around twenty twenty five minute video if i'm honest is quite brutal feedback. Sometimes we have to give that caveat back into People wit wit with during the reviews all but we always act as almost like the dumbest of that they will get in that apple because you'll product needs to be that simple intuitive so We've fifty reviews. I think a lot of the things that will be covering today. is really a combination of those fifty product devoting reviews that we've done in the lessons learned from older days. Great man so you've done a bunch of these reviews. What are the combination us you see with. The sales marketing handover to customer success teams for to be businesses. Yes so this is amiss to be a service that you're selling or it could be a much larger a product that you're selling well so one of the biggest pitfalls icy is that Let's start with why it's important to hand over to the customer. Success team properly not comes. Down to customers infill really appreciate it Because if they inflammation falls through the cracks they have to repeat themselves. And that's never a good experience to have especially specialist first engagement. The company wants save kind of signed a line. Oftentimes you see is what i've been in the situation as well that the team point fingers at each other when something goes wrong because no one knows. He's accountable full So having that process in place for the handovers really important. And i guess the most important thing when it comes to the unbolting of new customers that it's really is very very hard to win back. The trust of a customer once they had a bad on ordering experience linked to murphy of sixteen inches of he i think he coined the time. Seeds of chun applauded early and actually starts that planted in the sales prices as well. So maybe i can share some of the best practices that Deploy certainly i think if if i could take full main points. The first is just setting expectations with the customers during the sales process leading the know. What the on boarding process is going to be who's involved what's required from them as a customer verse is watsa expected for us business. Do that's really important in. Oftentimes it might be set on the cells gold all one of the one of the sales goals but a lot of companies. Forget that the They're selling is just one tiny part of their prospects that new customers over job not going to remember everything that you say on a cool Is important to follow up those expectations in in written format so they can always revolt back to another thing which i think was his little. Mr misalignment is not understanding how customers are actually going to measure success as a business you might have an idea of what as maybe success mouse. Things will definitely but you really wanna understand what customers are defining success a third. This is a situation. I've been in before i was in a sales role. I was closing deals. And i just didn't feel confident that the process behind the scenes after the sale closed was good enough. No no the people were going to have a great team but it just wasn't a assessing on easy to fully process so one of the things that we did to become. This was actually have a meeting between sales and customer success to officially handed with the customer. And it's all about sharing the little bits information that your customers have shed with you during the sales process. And they're really nuggets of gold because it could just be one thing they said at the end of a sentence that you realize that's really important to them so is handing over some of the informal information that you received an ulcer from the customer success. be it might not be customer success team. It might be applied delivery or could be you'll handing trubisky. That should be a standard set of questions which cost during the voting candidate meeting. And you know as an excels person it can be a waste of time. Because i just wanna go off in sell But it's really important to get right in over properly. And i guess the fine thing would be to keep the communications auto open with the customer and is often the sales person that gets the blame. If the on boarding process isn't smooth An impact your reputation as as a sales person on also impact the opportunity of increasing the lifetime value through a upsells in cross sell opportunities in the future. Because it's a road the trust of as an individual So definitely having that Donald urban and i didn't think there's anything wrong with a salesperson sending an email a few weeks off the on boarding process started saying. Hey just checking in. How's everything going for you. Oftentimes it's a clear cut handover. Sales never speaks to the customer during the on boarding process. But i really don't think there's any harm in doing so

If you're thinking about stealing eggs from the nests of sea turtles on the beaches of costa rica. well you may wind up getting more than you bargained for because researchers have combined. Gps technology with three d. printing produce. Decoy eggs that look and feel like real turtle eggs but can track where traffickers go when they swipe these endangered embryos the egg saving efforts are mapped out in the journal. Current biology some finds sea turtle eggs to be a delicious seasonal treat. Others think they're an aphrodisiac. Which has produced a thriving illegal market the mock turtle eggs were crafted in response to something called the wildlife crime tech challenge a program sponsored by the us agency for international development. Scientists led by kim williams kyanne of paso pacifico conservation organization device the decoys. They drew their inspiration in part from popular tv. Show says paso pacific executive director. Sarah ostrom kim's idea to put a tracking device into the league came from an episode of breaking bad where the police hit a. Gps transmitter in a shipment of raw materials for methamphetamine lab. The first challenge was getting the eggs substitute just right. We started with the size and dimensions of the turtle. Egg trying to figure out. How much do they weigh. What's their texture. How often squishy are they. What's their color then. The sorted out the electronics cell phones very widespread throughout the world. And we realized that if we could just use a sim card and a gps gsm technology. That's used in cell phones that even if a beach was remote from a cell tower if it was headed to a market somewhere would eventually pass by a cell tower. And the decoy aches could transmit to one of these cell towers. Finally it was time for a field test. I was actually the person who put the eggs in the nests. Helen physi- of the university of kent. And so it was really a case of deploying decoys into the nests and seeing if they Happens when they as you get. Taken fiji planted a decoy egg. In one hundred one. Sea turtle nests on four costa rican beaches about a quarter of the decoys got snatched some malfunctioned but others gave trackable signal. One wound up at a bar about a mile away but another traveled an impressive eighty five miles from its nest. Physique kept an eye on its progress from her cell phone and basically was moving further and further inland And eventually it. Stop so zoomed in on on the like google maps basically and it showed me very very clearly that it gone behind a supermarket like some sort of akali seep market loading by kind of area which was pretty suspicious is now really re not reason to really be there unless you unless you're up to up tonight good. The decoy hung around the loading dock for a time before making its way to a nearby residential property the fact that it spent two days in so waiting suggests that it may been handed over to a trafficker who sold it to someone else perhaps even the consumer that really fits we what we know about the illegal trade of xing. Costa rica reunited fanatic. Total information from interview information that exists old door to door and it seems likely that this is what's happened so yeah. We're very happy with that result. We've we've proved the concept that you can actually use these x. fee says. She hopes the decoys which they've dubbed. The investigators can help to really crack down on the illegal poaching of sea turtle eggs and reduce such operations to shell of their former selves.
'Black grief and white grievance' at New Yorks New Museum
"Now. The new museum in new york this week open grief and grievance art and morning in america and exhibition originally conceived for the museum by the hugely influential curator of queen ways or before. He died in two thousand nine hundred nineteen grief and grievance features thirty seven artists to address the theme of morning commemoration and loss in response to the racist violence experienced by african american communities the title the museum says refers to quote the intertwined phenomena of black grief and a politically orchestrated white grievance against each structures and defines contemporary american social and political life. Curatorial advisory group has worked together to realize an interpreter. Basil's vision maximiliano gio knee of the new museum. The artist glenn ligon in ways. As regular curatorial collaborator mark. Nash and owe me beckwith scenic creator of the museum of contemporary art in chicago. He's just been appointed chief curator of the guggenheim museum in new york editor in the americas. Helen stolis spoke to beckwith about the exhibition. I wondered what's it been like bringing the show to its final stages making sure that oakley's incredible vision has been realized. What was your thinking through the process to make sure you've got this kind of final end stage oak. We have a brial mind. There were always so many things that he was thinking about and working on and he can have an idea a decade ago that manifests itself into a show much much later and so his ability to kind of hold and juggle things Intellectually and mentally that then get realized later was uncanny honestly the more that i read essays of his from about ten years ago i realized the core of some of this thinking was already there especially the core of ideas in grief ingredient. So all that is to say that this actually is unlikely to be. Oh quiz show believe it or not. They'll be more coming more things to watch and see. The man's ambitions were amazing and so lars they will extend extend far past life But in terms of grief and grievance started as a lecture series for harvard and oh a curator. He thinks through art a curious interesting. That i'm still speaking about him in present tense and so he thinks through ours and he started then to take. These ideas That he'd been mulling over these ideas around. What really are the kind of core conditions of american race relations. Where did they begin. What catalyzed them and what are the ramifications of that core This sense of black loss and a sense of white grievance let really in his mind got catalyzed around the civil war. What are those ramifications for the american polity right now our process as curatorial advisors which is what we've been calling ourselves has really been about trying to round out oh quiz vision where it was necessary. Okay already had a rather. Set schematic for the show. He had core objects that he was interested. In working with a painting of awesome blogs painting by daniel johnson another awesome. Blah's painting by jack whitten and a painting regime michel basquiat. He was really interested in these three objects as the ways to anchor away of of both thinking through reactions to Black and justice but also aesthetic forms that moved between abstraction and figuration between forms that are legible and gestures that deal. Mostly i think with the monochromatic. So these being the kind of catalyzing ideas for the show. were great signposts for us so then began to work with those themes and ideas for the rest of the checklist.

"On February seventeenth. Nineteen seventy seven. Helen Brach checked out of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota and it was never seen or heard from again and while Richard Bailey. Helen's lover at the time was eventually convicted in her disappearance appearance. There were some issues with the evidence. Used to convict him. which brings us to our second theory about Helen's disappearance Jack Matlock her house? Man Killer the evidence for the theory emerged slowly in the years following Bailey's conviction and it was never officially brought to trial by investigators. Nevertheless it's the most credible theory. According to most experts who have reviewed the case and even according to several members of the Chicago Horse Mafia among the supporters of this theory are Ross Huegill the veterinarian who testified at Belli's trial and was subsequently imprisoned for his own illegal activities several detectives who interviewed Matt Lick and and James Wasilla junior and investigative reporter who wrote a detailed book about Helen's disappearance based on hours of interviews. The theory theory goes as follows on February seventeenth. Nineteen seventy seven the weekend. How in return from the Mayo Clinic to Chicago? Helen told mathematics she was moving to Florida with Bailey and would no longer be requiring his services. Furious Matt Lick Snapped Killed Helen and buried her body somewhere outside a small farm. An animal sanctuary that Helen owned in Ohio. Not Far. From her birthplace there is more than a preponderance preponderance of evidence to suggest. This might be exactly what happened. What makes this theory so compelling to investigators is madly clear your motive? Dan The fact that everything he told authorities about his final weekend with Helen turned out to be ally. Matt Link. Cataldi police that Helen flew from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota to O'hare airport in Chicago where he picked her up that weekend. Helen stayed at the Chicago Estate With Matt Leg. During which time she kept to herself refusing to even speak on the telephone then he dropped her off at O'hare at seven. AM on Monday for a flight to Florida. where she planned to move with? Richard Bailey. Really police had no trouble finding holes in madly story. I when Helen left the Mayo Clinic gift shop the morning of February seventeenth. She told the clerk. My house man is waiting meaning. Matt Lick must've picked her up in Minnesota and not from O'hare as he claimed he was thus thus the last person to see her alive. Matlock is correct about Helen. Not Speaking on the telephone but it's doubtful. Oh she did that by choice. Several calls came in but Matt Lake always answered the phone and told callers that Helen was unavailable feelable. This is incredibly suspicious because Helen reportedly loved speaking on the phone and if she were at home for an entire tire weekend especially a weekend before moving to a new state. It's likely she would have been on the phone constantly. Telling everyone her plans and saying in goodbye. And as for Madly Driving Helen to O'hare first thing Monday morning for her flight to Florida. Helen never flew in the morning wing and she wasn't even going to Florida in the first place in her last known correspondence. She had written to a friend from the Mayo Clinic that she was was not planning to go to Florida for quite some time because she needed to get her affairs in order. Matlock was also having financial problems problems at the time of Helen's disappearance. He claims he revealed this to hell in over the weekend. And she took pity on him and wrote several checks totaling around thirteen thousand dollars. But after Helen's death it was discovered that matlock had forged her signature. The root of Matt Lakes financial problems were gambling debts. He owed to the spill latrobe brothers. You'll remember them as the mafia gangsters who disposed of bodies by turning them into liquid steel in other words he had some dangerous connections. Joyce Novak Matlock's ex-wife also testified in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. That Matt Lick had his own violent history. She told detectives that Matlock had a violent Alan Temper and beat her several times once until she lost consciousness. So we know Matt Lick had a hair trigger temper and and was capable of violence. She also detailed their money woes and how she had been forced to use checks instead of cash to keep track of expenses down to the a penny but after Helen Brock's death Joyce Claims Matlin showered her with hundred dollar bills. She also claimed that Matt Lick never stayed overnight in one of Helen's houses when she was in town but he happened to on the weekend. Helen disappeared. Furthermore Joyce asserted that matic and Bailey had started speaking on the phone frequently in the weeks before Helen's disappearance often four hours at a time. This isn't that unusual until you consider that the two of them had never spoken on the phone. Before after Helen's death investigators also found toll receipts from the weekend of Helen's disappearance between Helen's stayed outside and she cargo and her farm in Ohio. Jack Matlock had submitted them to Helen's estate for reimbursement but there's more donald nor groundskeeper testified that on the weekend of Helen's disappearance he stopped by the broncos state to give Matt Flick an estimate for some tree work nor walked around the back of the house to an open door where he saw map lick with another man and a teenage girl in an oversized sized dress and ill-fitting red wig not unlike the one Helen had taken to wearing before disappearance. If this is true it would explain why. And how Mamik lied about dropping Helen off at O'hare airport he may have gone to the airport but clearly it wasn't with Helen. It was someone made to look like her nor also revealed that he knocked for several minutes at Helen's door and was ignored ord even though he was no more than twenty feet away from matic and the others assembled inside then when he turned to leave matlock walked up behind him and Said said there's something very important going on in the house right now I will call you later. Matlin called him on February twentieth and told him I'm to return to the House the following Monday then on Monday Matlin gave nor a check for nine hundred fifty dollars for the tree trimming coming work and a fifty dollar tip when Nora asked why he was receiving a post dated cheque for work he hadn't completed and hip Matt Lick lost. His temper screamed threatened him and urged him not to speak to authorities. This theory is extremely compelling for one thing there are multiple witnesses to matt lakes devious behavior he also had a history of violence and emotive he. He was in dire financial straits and stood to personally benefit from Helen's death however matlock was not known to be a criminal mastermind mastermind in fact it seems totally. Implausible that Matlin could have orchestrated and carried out the murder alone specifically that he was able to kill Helen and dispose of the body without leaving any incriminating evidence after all. This is the same Jack. Matic who couldn't even forge George Helen's checks without getting caught as for the toll receipts while it's clear. That Matt Link drove to the Form Ohio. It could have been for a number number of reasons including purging the house of any valuables so while there's a great deal of evidence to suggest madly killed Helen himself off. It just doesn't seem like he was capable of such a task he would have needed the help of professionals. Our third theory sorry proposes. He got jest that the theory. I came to light in two thousand two when detectives received a call completely out of the blue from Joseph Plemmons Plemmons was the con artist and Jane Gang Associate who was supposedly present on the night. Helen was killed according to theory. One by two thousand two plemmons was somehow still in the horse. Business and living a quiet life in Pennsylvania but he was wracked with guilt and couldn't go on until he revealed the truth about what really happened to Helen. That's why he called old detectives and unburdened himself of a secret. He'd been keeping since nineteen seventy seven his testimony combined the most compelling elements elements of the previous two theories. We've discussed this is what he claimed. The first part of the Bailey theory of the disappearance Prince was true. Bailey did shop around for an assassin to takeout Helen Brach but when his price proved too low he flint Florida. In the meantime Matt Lick arranged a deal with the jeans and the pilot tros madly would pick helen up from the Mayo Clinic and drive her back back to Chicago while they burgled her house taking her valuable jewelry art and millions in bearer bonds. Not only with the satisfy the gambling debts matlock owed them it would make them all very rich Lee writer. The Jane Gang Bodyguard met Matt Lick upon his return to Chicago with Helen.

Theft and ends we'll learn Jack matlock maintained connections with the violent Chicago Horse Mafia while it might seem odd that Helen would trust someone like math.

Some Helen agreed but something about the deal gave her second thoughts. Helen hired an independent trainer to appraise the deal. Bill after one look at her new horses he told Helen she'd been scammed. Helen was furious serious.
