If you talk to people who grew up your they would say that sunday one of the happiest days of their lives sunday night after that win you could hear fireworks going off around cleveland. I don't know who has fireworks in the middle of january but people have them. Apparently people were driving up and down. Their streets warns it was a very exciting night. For cleveland and one that they've been waiting for for twenty six years and really forever considering how dominated they have been by the steelers over the years. Yes i'm looking at a list of things. Actually jake that happened in nineteen ninety four when the browns won their last playoff game. Turns out the number one on the billboard charts. Was the sign by ace of base. Is that all sound right to you. In terms of how did all of this has been feeling. Yeah i've been doing this all year checking what songs were number one at a time. The browns headache milestone. I know that when they were foreign one for the first time since nineteen ninety. Four when bill belichick was still the head coach. That boys to men actually had the number one song on the billboard. Hot one hundred. That kind of gives you a little context of how long it's been since the browns were at this point. I mean they're starting quarterback for example wasn't even alive to rewind to a little bit more recently the week leading up to this playoff win over the steelers it was. I don't even know how to explain it. Other than just like total chaos. Breaking news into i ate out of cleveland browns coach. Kevin stefanski has tested positive for covid.

But to this team's credit into kevin's stefanski credit. They have never panicked. They have never felt sorry for themselves and they have been able to overcome it. Which is the most impressive thing. When this team given their lack of success in the past in the way as they've come together their ability to overcome different curve balls that have been thrown their way.

The park contains many trails and emigrant museum and the beautiful donner lake surrounded by towering trees. It might be hard to believe that a place so tranquil busy terminally damned but it is said that the energy of a place even a stunning one can be changed forever by tragedy. And that's exactly what happened to donner memorial state park in the winter of eighteen forty-six the previous spring eighty-seven people from the donner and read families. Embarked on a journey from springfield illinois heading west to california brothers. George and jacob donner hand carefully planned the route with james reid but poor leadership and a series of missteps led the men to make few errors. The i was the decision to take the hastings cutoff and untested shortcut that put the travelers behind schedule in fighting heavy wagons and exhausted animals. Slow them down further by the time they traipse through the sierra nevada's winter at already begun and with it of fatal snowstorm. Thompsons hands trampled. She rang out the rag. The snow she'd melded onto it had been warm just moments ago but the wind had put the fire out now. The cold wet cloth was stinging her fingers still. She squeezed the water into her husband. Georgia's mouth moistening his dry lips but he didn't move he hadn't for days he just lay there chain of obligation fastened to her ankle. Tanzim had been against this journey from the start she'd been happy in illinois they'd be well off with a sprawling home in happy children. She had done a teacher there but he wanted more. He insisted on california and thompson could say nothing. Why are meant to nod politely. Even as they watch their husbands arrogance lead eighty plus souls into health and then a month ago. Hope had come. A rescue group had broken through the snow. Georgia been battling ethan. Dan so she'd sent her children. Were the rescuers to brave the wintry pass and get out of this nightmare. Take the children. She said she'd stay waiting out starvation with him. Because that's what whites were supposed to do. They stood by their husbands even when a doomed them. Now george was dying and she'd be all the whole thing had been selfish of him. But that was george always onto the next thing with no thought for anyone but himself her mouth twisted bitterness. Blame was the only feeling stronger than hunker. The wind shuttered the tent blowing open. It's flab with it. A torrent of snow flurries blue inside outside. Tamsin could see dim sunlight shining on the oppressive white woods. The evergreens were tall thick and laden with snow. Tencent thought that it looked like a cage. If ice she rose slowly to pull the flaps shut then looked at george i g shuttered. Then he lay completely still is is open and unseen. She held her hand under his nostrils.

Pablo Escobar's Hippos Are Out of Control
"A couple of years ago. I read a novella called river of teeth by sarah gaily. The concept of the story is based on a real world event. That almost happened smack. In the early twentieth century a bill was proposed in the us house of representatives and informally supported by theodore roosevelt. The us should import hippopotamuses from africa to the swamp lands of the gulf coast and breed them as an alternative meat source for americans basically starting a new industry in the us of hill. Ranching as you know this proposal never came to be but gala novella now collected into a volume with a sequel and some other stories under the title american hippo imagines magic in alternative history where this did happen only set fifty years earlier. You get kind of gulf coast cowboys on hippos tape story. It's great loved it. I highly recommend it. Or if you just wanna dig more into the facts. I put link in the show notes to a long read on the history of the hippo proposal by john. Mouallem will the reason i bring. This up is because americans in the early twentieth century. Were not the only ones with dreams of becoming hbo ranchers decades later pablo escobar would also get into the hippo game importing four of them to live on his estate in columbia and now forty some years later they have bread and multiplied and are spreading all over the wetlands of north bogo. Talk causing mayhem. Consternation and some real concerns for the region. Scientists say this now invasive species is competing with native wildlife polluting local waterways attacking humans and they project will grow in number two fifteen hundred hippos by twenty forty at that point the scientists say they will be nearly impossible to control their environmental impacts will be irreversible but never mind controlling fifteen hundred hippos. How do you control a dozen or even just one. That's not like you can just google it you know. In colombian officials are not hippopotamus experts and there are unique challenges levied upon this specific situation. I quoting the washington post in their natural habitat. Hippos spend the long dry season crowded into waterways shrunk to puddles. They're vulnerable to disease and predation not to mention one. Another as bad tempers but tropical columbia is hippo paradise. Environmental agency researcher david vary lopez said rain is abundant food is plentiful and they're no carnivores large enough to pose a threat. The animals spend five hours a day grazing on grasses and the rest of their time basking in the cool waters of the magdalena and surrounding lakes and quotes report from columbia not being the hippos natural habitat having in effect on the hippos behavior it also affects the surrounding communities impression of the hippos. The officials tasked with dismantling escobar's estate back in the ninety s. Weren't sure what to do with the one male and three female hippos so they just let them roam instead of sending them to a zoo with his other animals and mostly they did that because the hippos were massive and aggressive no one really wanted to approach them so we'll get the harm be and letting them go well. Kenyans and other african communities with native hippo populations could tell you a whole heck of a lot. You've got hippos from each sex so they can breathe for one and they're also hugely destructive to the environment into other animals. Hippos killed more humans each year than other large mammal. But when you don't grow up around hippos you don't necessarily know that so the hippos have become something of a mascot and columbia. According again gift shops in nearby puerto trail info sell hippo keychains and t shirts at the amusement park that was built on the site of escobar's former pleasure palace. Visitors can tour the lake where several dozen hippos now live occasionally one will plot into a nearby community looking as blase as a shopper on his way to the grocery store the hippopotamuses. The town pets resident claudia. Patricia camacho told the local news in two thousand eighteen. You could say that he now takes to the streets as if it were his own and quote but the hippos aren't as friendly as they may look on t shirts. They terrorize farms and hurt residents at times. The government has ordered the hippos to be shot on sight but there's been pushback from animal rights organizations and local residents so then they tried putting the hippos in a pin but and this is one of the mini quotes from this article. That honestly sounds straight hundred jurassic park. Etcheverry said i didn't know they could jump hikes so then they tried big pens with high enough walls that the hippos can't jump onto them. They've also been focused on trying to prevent them from breeding by cuisine. And then castrating the males. They've been through a steep hippo anatomy learning curve on that front though. Not even being sure where to look. For the animals external reproductive organs turns out. It's a bit complicated. They finally got a system of castration down. But it's costly and complicated so they can only do about one year but the estimates are that the population grows ten percent a year and apart from the bodily harm humans and the destruction of farms the hippos as they multiply host of other problems quoting again. A twenty twenty study of hippo inhabited lakes found that nutrients from the animal's feces were fuelling huge. Plumes of area an algae. These intern reduced the oxygen content of the water. Making it toxic to fish.

Author Angela Chen Discuss her book 'Ace: What Asexuality Reveals About Desire, Society, and the Meaning of Sex'
"And what. I really liked about this book because i think a sexuality something that's so unexplored culturally. It's just it's it's it's such a service to the book and also the community and yourself it's written both in a way that feels journalistic but also that feels inviting. How intentional was that. That feels like that must have been pretty intentional. It was intentional but it was also uncomfortable. So i told me more in my day job. I'm actually science and tech journalist. I do one health. I do a lot of stuff on. Ai and you know is going to take over the world and replace us you know that. Gonna stop which. There's just not a lot of room for personal narrative where you're writing about a i like it that way you know. I liked being a journalist. I like talking to other people telling their stories. So when i spilled the book i knew that it would have to be personal because it was important to me that a sexual person write this book. And if you're going to have an author you might as well use that experience. And i could be a guide of sorts people reading the book but it didn't come naturally to me because i'm not a culture reporter general or a sexual relationships reporter and i kept asking myself. Why are you doing this. This is totally a different part of your career. Even now people will be like. Are you going to buy a sexuality and unlike navy but maybe just continue writing about at so it really felt like while this was obviously an enormous privilege and honor to be able to write this book it felt like it was a necessity because it's not where my natural inclinations go toward. Okay well then. I guess my first question is are the machines taking over and when and who is the most important savior of our time. Is it sarah connor in actuality. This is actually very complicated question. I think they're not taking over yet. I'm much about climate change. That's talk on my mind but you know lots of smart people working on this smart well-funded people so hopefully we can. Hopefully that helps you sleep at night. I mean what helps me. Sleep at night is watching the terminator franchise so versions a bit of a catch. Twenty two the moment then that you decided that this was important enough for you to like break that membrane between what. You're more comfortable in like what was there a particular impetus for that or was it a sort of slow burning. This story needs to be told eventually kind of thing. I think it came out of this feeling in patients you know. I think it's like i think many of us have this experience. Maybe when you're younger and you discover like a new tv show or something and then you just wanna talk to everyone about it and then after a while whenever you're explaining something have to take like the first twenty minutes to this is the tv show here the characters and then you're like can i tell you my very and it kind of felt like that like my relationship with is action was like that. I didn't realize i was ace until i was in my twenties and realizing it. I had to go digging for it. I didn't have to go anywhere back. When i thought i was just straight woman. That was pretty much. You know what was expected of me. But i thought there were so many smart ways of thinking about the world is actual lines represented but you wouldn't have access to them because it wasn't in the culture to find any of that you'd have to be truly online in a way or you know have to rewrite academic books and so i kept trying to talk to people about you know the ways that it's actually makes everyone not just people who happened to be as like question like what is sex with sexual attraction. What is romantic attraction. How should we think about the world. But then i got tired of doing that. I lake tedtalk. Welcome to talk. Here's what it is. I wanted to skip that and get to the part where we are thinking about. What is that we all want. What what is pleasure. What if we center that their lives instead of sexuality and so i think that was the moment that feelings impatience that had so many people as or not would benefit from this perspective that i was like while. I am a journalist. I've always been a journalist. Maybe i should do this. While i have so many follow ups I want to talk about the this down. Because i want to talk about what. You're talking about about centering pleasure. I think that's really important

Roblox Valued at $30 Billion
"Roadblocks raises five hundred and twenty million dollars led by ultimate or capital and dragonair investment group so They announced today that they raised their five hundred. Twenty million dollars in a series h a purchase price of forty five dollars per share. If you do the math and all that sort of stuff it values the company at twenty nine point. Five billion dollars. Let's call it thirty right. The i don't know why they priced it. So it's twenty nine point five thirty sound so much pathetic. Let's call it. Thirty billion dollar valuation House spot on where we kind of wish we could sort of You know splice in the conversation. We had honorable extra because not only. Did we say this would happen right. That they would do private round where they've announced that they're going to do a direct thing not an ipo. So this is essentially their ipo fundraise right. That's how it directly thing works you raise the money privately and then you avoid sort of the the raise you do. That's part of the ipo on there for you. Avoid the show you avoid having the price shares and things like that so the has now been priced. It's effectively an ipo. it's not publicly traded. Yet they're gonna do public listing but this is the financing and we called the valuation. Right now i think we said based on unity's valuation. I you know. I think we agree to was probably going to be in this thirty billion dollar bar ballpark and we have longer. It's insane how close they Called it. I'm also surprised at this point. They don't round it up like like i just weird like you could call it a thirty. It's twenty nine point five. You can bow out that up like what who thought that sounded better lake. Like what's half a billion dollars point by. We're joking around. But yeah. I mean this is humongous. It's humongous your particularly william the the quote from the ceo of one of the funds that invested. Because i think this is telling. And maybe you have some thoughts on this it listen to the subtleties in the language here. He says while once viewed as a gaming platform roadblocks has emerged as the definitive global community connecting millions of people through communication entertainment and commerce said. Brad gerstner ceo. Tim under if you didn't know better what would he be describing a social network right. Yes like you don't even have to wait. I was literally like an listening to you. I'm like this. Sounds like facebook like this and most social networks go through that branding period where they get past their initial audience. Right think of facebook. Facebook used to be just for college. Kids right am i mean literally it was supposed to be like this is common knowledge but be supposed to be like the facebook that you've got as a freshman to meet new people right like that's why it's called facebook And now it's now. And i'm sure at the time they were describing themselves as a great platform for college age students to discover each other and forge friendships. And it's the same thing here. They are talking about like they would have said previously were gaming. Now wear something. We've expanded where social platform and that's insane because it. This is first of all what i think. We said. We felt like i think should have done. Ns feels like messaging. That should have come from epic from. This is how they should have been describing fortnight. So it's very it's surprising to see it from rob blocks. it's refreshing because i'm glad somebody has this messaging. Somebody is looking at games as social networks and trying to turn a game into a social network which is really potential right. And i'll see this last like for longtime ever since. I wrote the harvard business school case or co wrote. I should say on world of warcraft. I felt games are social networks. I'm not alone. i mean pretty much. Everybody who's thought about it realizes they're pretty much the same thing Right but it's interesting. To see this. Crossover into an investment thesis with this much money behind. And i think given the success of this. It won't be long before we see other dame's and game companies realize their social networks. Still think it's gone too far right like i was. I'm i've been so pro. Roadblocks right called the valuation called. This move loved the big number here right. it's own good for the industry. There's there's really no downside to any of this right in fact now thirty billion dollars again in kind of the context we're talking in. The context of a social network is a pretty cheap social network. Right when you're talking about the facebook and the twitter like where you're talking valuations in the hundreds of billions This is a pretty cheap social network and so super cheap for the number of users. I'm sure it has in the monetization per user. I bet it's it's bargain-basement steel which is probably part of why they want to calm themselves again. Social networks but like. There's a question of does this go too far right. Where the investor says while once views viewed as a gaming platform as if the daming days are like ancient history when you walk into rox. You're not playing a game right now. Either to be fair. Like i think this is okay like i really think mrs okay. Because like it's fair to say that their social and commerce activity going on and that their primary drivers and i've always been kind of a believer that raw blocks was not and i don't disparage anything here. Blake pound for pound. It's not the best game out there right. I'm sure there are many young kids and fans. That would just be with me. But i think fundamentally the reason why it's been successful is a game is not that the underlying game or game mechanics itself for so incredible or so unique Was because it was a social and ecommerce platform hooked into a game and the game was fun to play because of the socialization features in the commerce hawks. So you don't think language goes too far. I don't think it does in this case. No no like. I and i'll put it this way like if fortnight were describing itself that way without some major changes. I'd say i appreciate the aspiration but that's reaching right now but it's really does have other hooks in it. You know it really does right. So i i mean it's death. Look it's definitely like definitely you know a vanguard language right like it's somebody trying to change perception of the business but as long as the strategy meets the attempt to change perception. I think it's good for them. You know what. Let me let me push this one step further because the article ends with you know. Typical of a press release about blacks about altimeter capital right. There's always like the about sections for the the companies mentioned in the press release. Right and roadblocks. Let me just read the first sentence again. It's like there's a question mark here is this to have we gone too far right and the and the sentence here is roadblocks mission is to build a human co experience platform that enables shared experiences among billions of users so no game gaming in that sense but experience twice human once shared once billions once. You know it's a lot of good word into a lot of good words. No i mean. Look i mean. Clearly clearly it will remain to be seen whether or not their messaging this way to get a great valuation or if they're messing this way because they generally believe the platform can grow into that mission right. I feel like borderline disingenuous in the messaging. I like i said i'm the biggest fan of roadblocks. I love what they're doing. I think they've achieved and probably will achieve what fortnight should have in terms of growing outside of being a game. It's just like when you don't even mention it at all. I would like. I would like somebody who say like most users download custom levels and it would be like reading. A tesla press release and the word car is not used or automobile. Like is why don't they read that way anyway. Toby start with. Tesla is the future of human transportation or something. But i actually really don't know. But i mean i agree but like i mean the end of the day like i'd rather i. I think it's great for gaming e sports. Because i know sometimes we got a little bit of criticized for doing gaming news on east but the reality is this is so core to what's happening in interact entertainment like we can't discuss this right so it's the first then. The second piece is like okay. So you know i get that flake i get. This might be reach. And i think probably internally they're going to say it's a reach but i again i appreciate the fact that the market is recognizing that games can be more than games right. The games can be a bridge into something and fundamentally what games are about like interactive worlds. Can be a lot more than just half life in street fighter. Rife and i think whether or not they execute this change so fully as to earn that mission. I think it's going to make it easier for the next business to message. We're gonna see more businesses messaging mess name as a result will see the games media mature into more
Sabrina Orah Mark Writes Into Brokenness
"Writer and poet. Sabrina or a mark likes to describe her stories as having little poems folded up inside of them. She publishes monthly essays loosely based on motherhood and fairytales in the literary journal the paris review. Here's the opening of her november essay. You break it. We fix it. I am inside. you break it. We fix it holding my son shattered. I-ipad hello i call out. No one answers. The counter glows white and the walls are empty. Hello hello. I wait a few minutes before calling out again. One minute says a raspy voice from the back of the store hopes swells in my chest. Here we comes. We will fix said i hold up the broken screen so we can see it on a little shard of glass. Trump's the floor with a plank. Yeah we says you know what i ask. We says the soldering work required would more than a new ipad. We says it would take weeks possibly months. Sabrina began writing this essay in the weeks leading up to the presidential election. She published it after the election when the sitting president and a large percentage of his allies still refused to accept the decisive results. Oh the next week. I returned. You break it. We fix it with a whole entire country. It's heavy but i managed to carry it through the parking lot leaving behind a trail of seeds in the crisp sent of democracy and something that smells like blood or dirt across. It is a growing crack. A trial too young to be alone is out in front holding a broken country to store is gone out of business as the child. I shift the country to one arm and tried appear in. But it's shuddered and dark. Told you says the child out of business. I text my husband. You break it we fix. It is closed. I've come here for nothing again. The texture of sabrina 's essays is a rich. We've of fairytales politics. The past and her children's voices. Sabrina joins us for the fourth. In our four part series on creativity in the global pandemic. We started off talking about how she's managing to find the time to write with two young kids. At home she drew parallels between the ways that motherhood and quarantine have shaped her creative process right now. we're home schooling. And so there's this. I mean it's it's it's a packed house like twenty four seven and there is like the endless ness of like of things everywhere and snacks and then trying to ride. And then you know I do feel like. I've been working harder than i've ever worked in my entire life like you know since march like because you just have to grab the pieces of time where you can find it. It was funny because i was homeschooling. You know all day long like all day and at one point i just it was like from four to five i just i climbed into my bed and just like sat there with like staring at a wall at five o'clock my signs come into my room and they're like you forgot about us like what do you mean i forgot about you like how could i forget like it was like a whole hour went by you know like where i wasn't just right i was. Yeah you write about your kids a lot and their voices creep into your writing sometimes in unexpected ways. Which is one of the things that i really love about your writing so just to back up a little bit. You've said that after you had children the form that you're writing took changed after. I had kids. Is i think in many ways like i became more porous like i allowed. I had to allow more of the world and and it was right around that time where In many ways my prose poems started sort of growing and growing and growing part of it was just time. Because i couldn't like live inside of a single poem. I used to write these prose poems. In the instance of lake hermetically sealed likes Boxes and spaces of time. And i couldn't do that anymore after i had kids. And so would sort of just keep returning and returning and returning to my writing and then it would kind of get bigger and longer and stranger and more porous and there was more interruptions and then in many ways my palm started turning into stories and then with these essays. Even more of the world's i think started coming in And i really believe in some crossing. John rouse and having things blurb because i do think that you know fiction will leak into reality and reality leaks into affection and i don't really believe in like you know the the strict border between between john or as For myself creatively lake. I need to sort of move back and forth in that fluid way. It's really interesting that you connect that with having children. Yeah i used to be able to like work in these. These of yeah on interrupted Spaces and then the interruptions actually ended up really feeling like like a gift you know. And that's sort of something. I've been thinking a lot lately. Just you know inside of a. You know these last seven months of That that in certain ways like a lot what we lose often. You know We gain in these other places Like i'm trying really hard to find those places where like the thing that feels like a loss is not really a loss. And i'll give you an example like i'm teaching A class in poland's on on zoom and one of my students is disabled and she was talking about how you know. Normally these students are all Brought onto a university campus in the states and in a millionaire. She never would have been able to participate in this program. And she said you know Your captivity like when the world's closed for you the world opened up for the first time for me. And i would never have been able to meet her otherwise i would never have been able to know her and know her writing and hear her voice and mike see her. You know and when i moved all of my classes that i teach online. I thought like oh god. I don't wanna teach these workshops online. I love sort of the intimacy of the classroom that i've created an ideal but i think that like i held onto this idea of how things are supposed to be all of the time like so intensely that had i not been forced into this like other space. I would never have known this. You know what. I wasn't seeing Like why did i ever offered classes online before thinking about like you know people who for a million different reasons like wouldn't be able to get semi to a classroom. It was like the perfect moment of like what we loses. What we gain

As he told, the police officers, it was a thin tall figure it seemed to shine it had long fair hair and was barefooted. I did not notice the face I was too frightened. The report ends with the notice that captain gleason of the park, station was informed of the fair and gave orders that any ghost answering to this description. is to be arrested on sight. Coming up, we discover the other supernatural part of still lake one that has nothing to do with the water. Now back to the story. the radical change San Francisco underwent during the nineteen. Th Six earthquake cannot be underestimated. Massive fires ravaged the metropolis and an observatory built on Strawberry Hill at the center of Still Lake collapsed never to be rebuilt. The landscape changed again in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty when a statue called the pioneer mother was placed at stowe lakes entrance. It was commissioned to honor the pioneer women of the old West and two picks a woman with outstretched arms and a small boy and girl clinging to her skirts. The statues downcast gaze is. And it's blankets but the rumors surrounding the sculpture. Are even more frightening. Poppy had never bought drugs before she bar with them a lot. But this was her first big by. She felt very adult. Her parents might not have fought her art degree was real, but they didn't know anything about art. She was going to commune with the universe while they watched reruns of the Big Bang theory that no one could stopper.

She settled into wait sliding your headphones in and pressing play on her favourite audiobook. She knew it was a bit daring to turn on tune in and drop out before she even had the tablets but she was already at stow lake at night. Tonight she was all about taking risks. She couldn't help it raise your eyes to the statue as the chapter title echoed in her ears. There was a strange kind of movement conveyed by the casting of the bronze is if the woman had been frozen in time fighting the wind that blew through the old West horizon looked down in a vacant stare. The posture was all wrong. Her arms outstretched supposedly welcome. But it book something much darker and poppy. She felt like she was being beckoned. The statue wanted her to climb up the platform and into its arms. But the second it did those arms would catcher and she would be dead to the world. Perhaps, she frees up on the podium and become part of the artwork joining the little boy little girl clinging to the creepy women's skirts. Poppy, shook it off groaning herself.

She thought it was some kind of reptile skittering down the well-worn surface behind her. But whatever it was didn't move like a reptile. Not mealy. In fact, it wasn't visible at all. It was crawling beneath the still surface. She jumped backward. The statue was still A. Puppy squinted. A sudden burst of children's laughter pierced through the recording nearly blowing artery ears. She panicked Jianqing the headphones off but once you pick them up again All she heard was the soothing. British. Forms. She looked around for the source of the sound. But nothing. Finally, her is landed on the blank gaze of the pioneer mother. She regretted it instantly. The statute features moved and shifted the high cheekbones becoming jagged the mouth stretching to reveal glistening white teeth.

Squeezing poppies, eyes bulged she tried to breathe. But no air would come the inhuman sculpture pulled her toward it per feet dangled. She kicked at Empty Air. It was too strong. She closed her eyes preparing for the end. But the end didn't come. Poppy heard a faint voice calling her name. She felt the rigid grip releaser. And then she was falling. She hit the crown finally out of the nut. So still monsters grasp her chest seized in pain depriving her precious oxygen as black dots danced in her eyes.

She asked if frank had the drugs they did she handed the cash over and took the pencil case red in the face from both pride and panic. Poppy. Expected to come up with some story to explain why she was white as a sheet but frank, just trundled off into the darkness. Poppy stood opposite the statue for a moment daring to move. But the pioneer mother is blank is just stared in their usual downcast direction. Only the frozen little boy her feet looked at her with the soft curious gaze. Profoundly annoyed poppy opened up the small pencil case frank had given her prepared to celebrate her spoils even if she was shaken to take them. But. The case didn't told ecstasy or LSD or oxy.

For fourteen years with scant evidence. The defense went back to witnesses. The police had interviewed years before. Talk to others and heard a whole new story of Michelle's last hours on earth I earlier. Trials said reveal the mother of four had been hanging with an unsavory crowd coworkers. Customers from her waitressing job attorney. I eat a lesson ring. There were people there that had criminal records. There were people there that were dealing drugs. There were people there that were making sexual advances on the night. She vanished after she left her boyfriend's place now new. They said that Michelle did not go home because one of those witnesses reported seeing her later we do that night with another man a local steelworker attorney done on September eleventh on that night in a bar in a dance dance club. He actually said and that he was there but then he left the two of them alone and he went home. Steelworkers pod with Michelle was a regular at her restaurant to the defense his name was stacy. Stewart the defense said. He told his friends he had a sexual relationship with Michelle and said the Defense Stacey Stewart appeared to be the very man Kevin Top saw with with Michelle in the early hours of September twelve. There was a blonde woman out there and a young gentleman You know in his early twenty s dubs identified that man from a photograph his physical appearance his facial hair his height of his age and the type of vehicle drove dubs said the man he saw was standing beside a black truck. Stacey Stewart owned a black truck same kind and it's a new model and it's a Chevy and you look everything up and it's all coming together. Stacey Stewart has denied any involvement Michelle's disappearance. He's denied he ever had relationship with Michelle. said he was never even loan with her. Still Cal side was convinced that Stewart and a friend of his played some role in Michelle's IOS disappearance in two thousand fifteen trial number three opened in the town of Harry. The change of venue necessary said the defense because the case was too well known tiogue Noga County and the defense managed to get some of the prosecution's case thrown out. The state wasn't allowed to suggest as it had before the blood was spilled around the time show disappeared the have forensic scientists get up and speculate and guess how old blood was based upon the caller from a photograph is not rage. Asli unsupported proposition also out hearsay testimony from prosecution witnesses. Who said Michelle told then? The cow threatened her life. We don't think they belong to evidence as part of the reason cases on the first time in the second time then the defense attempted to present its evidence evidence about that alternate suspect Stacey Stewart and the judge. Shut them down. The jury would only be allowed to hear. Stewart's name that Michelle knew him that Kevin Tubbs had idead him and that he owned a black truck of the time. No more why. Because Stacey Stewart wasn't on trial Caldera's was the wrong man. Attorneys insisted cow did not deserve to be on trial and frankly Michelle Shell and the her family deserve better. We all WanNa know what happened to her. It's time to look elsewhere. There was a new prosecutor. You too this time. Thai Yoga Counties Kirk Martin. He made the same arguments as the previous. Da Saying the evidence pointed to cal Harris killing his wife. The trial took three months and finally late April the jury got it and the waiting began. Michelle's family still convinced convinced. That cal was guilty. His you're a corner of your brain thinks maybe it was somebody else not at all not at all well cow and his family hoped the jury had been persuaded otherwise. You know. You have been confident before when you've gone on trial because you sir. I didn't do it. I should be acquitted and yet you weren't. So how does that impact your thinking now. Just by what Bruce and his is team have done in the investigation. It's got create some doubt and we didn't have that before so uncertainty. By this time it was a way of life for for the children so I think you know if things don't go our way it'll definitely you know turn all of our world's upside down but I think we're I know we're tough enough. We'll get through it but you know you definitely don't like to think about that kind of thing. We definitely plans what we WANNA do. That's all said and done and over with with the good end turns out. We'll talk about that at all AK Shen. So we're cool. Maybe.

"You what happened here in Little Owego New York in August two thousand seven was almost unbelievable. Kawahara convicted of killing his wife. Michelle show who is about to be sent away for twenty five to life and suddenly it all blew up right in. Da Jerry King's face. I came into the courtroom thinking that the defendant was going to be sentenced and it ended up being more of my being on trial. Who who on earth had the power to make this happen? He did Kevin tubs. I know that she was there. Okay I know she was Kevin Tugs plainspoken rough-hewn farm worker back then was hauling Hay. And why was he so important because after six years during which tops for he barely registered the fuss over the Harris case he picked up a paper saw the story of cows conviction and and I seen that and I started like recall. You know second-line Oh my God just like that. He's suddenly newly said What he saw the morning after nine eleven the morning Michelle Harris disappear was important did was between five thirty and six in the morning? He said he was hauling a load of Hay as I was going by the Harris property there was a blonde woman out there and a young gentleman you know as early twenty s standing by a pickup truck. My lights is right on them and hardly more than ten feet away. He said he looked straight at the young man saw. He was dark haired muscular at visibly angry. He looks like dislike. What do you want and the woman she was looking down just by her face looked like she was crying upset or wasted the woman? He said he was certain of it. It was Michelle Harris was her. Was it true if Kevin tubs really did see Michelle on in the early morning hours of September twelve the prosecutor's case was in ruins because cal Harris couldn't have murdered her some seven hours before an innocent good man had just been convicted and so the judge tossed out the verdict call for another trial and sent cal home to his kids. Many including including Michelle's family thought tough story with bogus. Everybody knew is lie and I mean it was the most bizarre story that you could ever told hold then of course trial number two opened in two thousand nine. The prosecution attack tubs credibility. Why did he wait? Six years to come forward deal for the defense. It's TUBBS was pure gold. The man to create reasonable doubt. There simply isn't enough evidence to convict kill hair supporter. Bill Eastern Eastern was one of CAL's attorneys. There's not an eyewitness to an ear witness to what he didn't confess to it. None of this direct evidence is present. In this case. It's the prosecution. Argued that cow showed how unfeeling he was by failing to join the search for Michelle. That was nonsense that Mary cow simply trying to we keep altogether for his small children. There were dozens. Maybe hundreds of experts scouring.

"In September two thousand five four years years after his wife Michelle vanished cow Harris was charged with murder. Oh it hurts absolutely you know. I had a good standing in the community. Had A successful business business. Donate my time and money and resources to a lot of good causes and the community. Raise my kids in that community and You Know Oh all of it was just taken away but the Thai Yoga County. Da had become convinced. That cow killed his wife late on the night of nine. Eleven and as the children's Lebron slept disposed of her body. The more I met with the people that were close to Michelle and knew something about the case the more convinced I became that the trial began in May two thousand seven with the prosecution claim. That cal Harris was then used to being in charge of everyone on everything in in his life is in control of his businesses. He's in control of his wife. He's in control of his finances is employees and and His children and just kind of domineering person. More than that said. The prosecutor Caldera's could be volatile show began in keeping notes about what she said was abusive language and behavior. In fact she won a temporary order of protection against what he said to her was. I wouldn't wouldn't need a gun to kill you and if I did kill you. They'll never find your body in the heat of passion. People say terrible things to each other doesn't mean they kill them though but he went beyond saying terrible things to her. He told her that he would put her body in a place where it would never be found. And that's like one of the biggest facts so the case that we've looked and looked and looked for this woman's body and have not been able to find it the Harris family babysitter. A woman named Barb. Fair testified that she was the one who found Michelle van parked at the end of the long driveway. She goes into the House and she yells is Michelle here because their cars at the end of the driveway live way and the defendant without missing a beat. He just said we'd better go get the car according to the babysitter. Cal didn't seem surprised. Raised doesn't ask her any questions about the keys like he knows that the keys are in the van. This is an interpretation of a person's reaction. Yeah you're right what it's all all these hundreds of little things that convinced me that he's just not acting like someone would act if they didn't know what had happened to their wife later that morning. When New York State troopers talked to cal- they too made note of his demeanor? They seem kind of unconcerned. Learned he was more concerned with getting Michelle Harris's van cleaned up and back on the lot. The motives said the prosecutor. Peter was simply money. Cal had learned that Michelle was demanding an appraisal of the car business. Did she intend to take a piece of it in the divorce. All of a sudden everything is out of his controlling zome. The argument went if Michelle disappeared. Cows problems did to he. He was going to have his finances scrutinized he was perhaps not gonna be able to stay in the marital residence. Certainly has children are leaving and the the next day all those things are back in his control. Finally that blood evidence prosecution witnesses called it medium velocity spattered recently. I think it could very well have been the most important part of the case as far as placing Michelle bleeding in the house With some force having been applied to that blood and no explanation for it so what happened that tonight prosecutor keen but his theory to the jury. She got home that night at about eleven thirty Parker car went in through the garage door and that assume as she got inside the house she was struck with something by the defendant. She went down on the kitchen. Rug Key he said was struck again. That blood splatter so this would put her down either on her knees or on her bottom and she's being struck and the blood spatters on the door and on the carpet took her back out into the garage and later down on the garage floor. She must have bled some some of the garage floor. Because there's an area three feet by six feet where blood was found then. The prosecutor cow tried to clean up before he disposed of the body. He would have been taken the car back down to the end of the driveway. Walk back up to the House and disposed of the body during the seven hours or thereabouts before he called Mrs Thatcher. The defense defense attorneys tried to Swat it all down and calderas himself was adamant he had nothing to do with his wife's disappearance. It's one thing to say. Look I'm innocent. Listen I didn't do this but it's another to have so many people accusing you pointing the finger at you. Look I'm I'm not guilty. I didn't do this. I didn't commit this crime. There was no body no murder weapon and the defense. The forensics were unconvincing at best but the jurors weren't having it it was June two thousand seven. They they came back guilty. Cal Harris broke down and sobbed. Because I knew I was Gonna not see my kids. I knew I wasn't going home that night Pinot and I knew how they were going to be and just was overwhelming. But in the eyes of Michelle's family it was finally justice at then extraordinary thing happened. My first reaction was come at the judge is not going to accept. This guy's acclaimed A.. New Witness with an amazing story and it turned the Harris case on its head As I was going by the harassed property there was a blonde woman out. There looked like she was crying. I don't was her. Had this man. See Michelle Michelle as the most bizarre story that you could ever told it. Ready for trial number two.

One thousand nine hundred. Michelle cow got married here. Beside Empire Lake was great day it was just a beautiful setting and very relaxing Not Very stressful. Just kind of being a big party afterwards. The fairytale rolled on the the kids kept coming. They built the House on Empire Lake and here on their private preserve. They were a family in motion fishing swimming skating. Michelle into all of it and now now the kids are much older. Of course. They're mom her. They had no real memories long. Time is true most your lives and how old are you. I'm not sure how I was but I don't have any memories. It is often told by those who knew Michelle how much she resembles her mom. I have seen pictures over. She's really pretty she's always smiling. Seems like a really happy person so it makes me feel good that people see me and her even with that terrible loss said the kids. They've grown up happy and content for the most part. All thanks to one person. Just tell me about your dad. Kind of guys funny He's funny he's the most caring guy in the world. He's nice and where his whole world then he's protective even even just loves us so much and wants the best for US protective WHO said he tried to shield them best? He could from the not so happy times. Michelle was really struggling with those kids at a young age which I totally understood what I noticed was that she was just drifting away from being being a stay at home mom and I understood that there was certainly friction in the Harris married. He loved order. She not so much she had in a room downstairs and she called the Chuck Room. Airfare is going to be a party or picnic or whatever she'd throw it take it down Chuck Room. She told friends and family. He he had a temper a controlling way. Once back in Nineteen ninety-six she called her sister-in-law from a closet terrified. Had The gun outside the closet is it and she was inside hiding. Would you hear about that. He was out there as a pump. Gun I guess. And he was racking pump action up and down and tolerant come out cow later denied. It was true that he'd been fighting or threatening the show with a gun then in nineteen ninety nine. Michelle learned cow was having an affair affair. She was devastated but not ready to end the marriage and cows said he wasn't either Michelle said. Oh you know we can work through this but you know you gotta get rid of the girl. She worked up at the CORTLANDT dealership. They did what they could to salvage the marriage. It didn't work. She told her family. He cut off her spending spending money. She took up with a young man and November two thousand a month later. She told cal she wanted divorce. Her family said he didn't take a boil things in that big house in paradise grew strained. Indeed why did she stay in the house. Her attorney had advised her to stay in the house and To not leave. They divided the parenting duties and worked on a settlement. Michelle got a job as a waitress at a local restaurant bar. That's where she. He was the night of September eleventh. She finished her shift about nine. Had some drinks who to co workers and then she drove to her boyfriend's apartment left Airbud eleven that sumo we believe was the last time anybody saw Michelle Harris. We did a lot of work on a a lot of different people early on and it wasn't until they were eliminated and then we learned more and more about Calvin that he became the focus district attorney even tried to speak to. The two eldest children didn't accomplish much beyond frightening them. Apparently I know I just sat there and and cry the whole time. I didn't talk. I wasn't allowed to be in their Taylor but older you the time I was in fourth grade and he was in fifth grade so nine nine and ten but da Jerry Keen said he interviewed plenty of other witnesses. Who convinced him that? The police had the right man in September. Two thousand five four four years after Michelle Harris disappeared the DA charged or husband cow with second degree murder. Three state police personnel literally utterly busted into my office and kick the door open and the three of them jumped me and handcuff me and shackled me and Walking walking out the front door of my office you gotTa taste on order up close and personal yeah the DA was going to take the case to trial even even though there was no body no murder weapon and even though he himself was by no means convinced he could prevail. I thought that it was is maybe a fifty fifty shot at a conviction. I thought that a jury could go either way hurts yes absolutely all of it was just taken away. Prosecutors come on strong. He told her that he would put her body in a place where we'd never be owned loaned at the evidence. I think it could very well have been the most important part of the case. True crime is my passion.

"Trying a criminal case more than a quarter century old tall order ordering memories fade witnesses. Die a fact not lost. On Europe's defense attorney. Chuck Watson if you take this case apart the only thank they can prove beyond reasonable doubt as the left that he ran away just made the wrong decision he did make the wrong decision But I wonder if the decision forgivable decision not surprisingly Diane Babcock's Fam- he was pushing hard for the prison sentence. They did not believe Diane with some actress in Shakespearean love tragedy. They did believe she was an unwilling participant. I bet who did not live to tell her side of the story. This is one of those kind of cases where really you're the only person on the planet who knows the truth. Mr Babcock was hoping that you would spend at least ten years in prison He was quite understandably naturally. Wanted to blame somebody for the death of his daughter and they were. Could you understand why he felt that way. No I find their attitude. Almost appalling. This was not some crime that you see on TV. This was two people love eloping. An accident happened in May two thousand seven after Urich. It spent nine months in the county jail. The prosecutor cut a deal. He dropped the charge Jamaica login homicide. Eric agreed to plead guilty to criminal. Mischief and criminal in danger said it's ten years on each count suspended with Matt. He would not spend a single day of that sentence behind bars in Montana. The gowdy attorney acknowledge the Diet. Sally didn't like the outcome but last what good he do their belief through means that she was essentially kidnapped murder. That is is a terrible way to do with the loss of a child. Then if I were dealing with the prosecutor who felt otherwise I wouldn't be with them either. Dan's family declined a request to take part in this report. And Sheriff Dupont's is no longer with us. He died in two thousand twelve but in his last years he do close to the Babcock and he spoke for them as much as for himself was a tragedy to that family. We we could executed Jerry Rosiak wooden in. It wouldn't help them. They needed to see some kind of justice that they needed to see them. And they didn't mind you your can roses. Legal troubles weren't over GYP. Back to Texas. He was to face federal charges including passport fraud after all he got in the US S. passport under a false name. Michael Lee Smith but again after another four months behind bars and some stiff fines yard was set. Free the federal government and their wisdom for punishment deported him. Back to where it all started to Vancouver so I got a free ride home. The very place he and Dian so desperately sought to escape is teenagers where no criminal jeopardy awaited Theft charge. He'd face for essentially stealing that airplane at long since been dropped by Canadian authorities. Uric Umbro Zeke was on final approach is to freedom back where it all began feel like home does especially now with my parents and my my sister and her kids being here. It's I definitely home. It's very interesting life. You have now these pieces. None of them seem to belong together and you have to put that one over here. This one over here. It had lifted in twenty years is Michael Smith and I think it was a model. US citizen when I did did do that. Fake you as wall nonetheless made lots of money and then I pay lots of taxes. Exemplary citizen model fictitious. Whatever you call it they still even after all this time there are questions he truly loved Diana do all all he could to save her? Were they eloping after all there. Was that phone call to his friend. Tom Barrack said Diane was just tagging along our Gordon lower or something like that. Many explain all that part of the records. It supports their theory. That you're a really bad dude. Who killed his girlfriend and now saying I was in love? It was Romeo and Juliet right well so people read anything. They wanted to the only way I can explain. This is shocked. I was in and you know a lot of people still don't believe you then probably won't believe even when you go chapter and verse through the Whole Story Richer and how much you did love her. They still won't believe that at all it can do tell them what happened. How it happened? The rest of the can't control. Uh He is written it all down every bit of his story in a book called a tear in my life the brutal truth to set the record straight he said and he's created on elaborate website with all the documents from his cases all of them. He's he's an unusual person. Derek Broza stubborn particular hooked on the tiniest details. was he a crazy man. was he a monster was he. Romeo was he a grief stricken boyfriend. You just don't know. Does it help to tell his story. Does he feel irresponsible guilty. If you're uric Ambrosi it's complicated. You said you're a lifelong Catholic isn't important Gordon to to feel somehow given for this. You know. Expect anybody to forgive me. I know what happened and I you know unfortunately a lost something thing very precious to me and we laugh together but that ended that night but getting people to to accept that. I don't think it really matters to me. And if we can believe him he is still deeply in love with his teenage sweetheart.

"It was a headline making moment that September of two thousand six when uric and ex-fugitive was escorted off the plane and Callous Bell Montana. I remember looking at the wire late in the afternoon one day. I'm like what what did it was. Just unbelievable the fake name the Career as a successful software developer. It was the furthest furthest thing from what I had imagined.

I don't get it. I guess I'll never will. It was pretty obvious the sheriff sheriff didn't exactly whole jargon high regard but there was a legal question now. The charge would be negligent homicide. Put Eric in Montana State Prison for ten years in Montana negligent homicide. You do something really stupid. That could cause the death of a person and sure enough somebody. Somebody dies negligent homicide. We did something stupid. This is not my idea. This was not just me and that's not negligent homicide. That's two kids in love. Stupid is what it comes down to. Europe pleaded not guilty dug in his heels. Here's his defense attorney. We Check Watson. The word homicide was extremely problematic for yard. I mean he he he takes responsibility built for the fact that that he screwed up landing the airplane and he takes responsibility for the fact that he shouldn't have left. But I guarantee you that he hasn't gotten over her death to this day. Do you see this as a Romeo and Juliet Story. There's an element of that. In the case these are two young people who thought they were star-crossed and decided to take their future into their own hands exactly said the sheriff and prosecutor it was so determined it was homicide but it wasn't anything like that and he clammed up.

How did you prepare for landing on the lake? The two of you cough. We ended up switching on a close to swim. Close redistribute everything to two bags three hours later. They were flying on fumes as they descended the Senate and the near dark toward the shimmering surface of little bitter Root Lake at. You're coming in for landing. It must've been pretty nervous. Sure nobody he practices to landing on water on a fixed aircraft. He slowed to stall speed. He took off his seat belt. Figured his grip on the controls would hold them in place. Diane kept her seat belt fastened lap belt and shoulder harness. Then when this wheels hit that that the water was like hitting a cement wall and suddenly you're at some cold water cold water and I remember tasting blood and so it was blowing my nose blood in your mouth. I'll tell you the pitch black as worse even the water some spinning around trying to Orient Myself once I stabilize a cumulus surface. I yelled out. You Know Dan where are you okay and from there she she said Yeah. I just can't get my seat belt off left. Probably didn't save quite so calmly. No she was actually. It was fairly calm. I believe desperately. He said he tried to get to her unaware that when the plane hit the water as shown in his animation it slipped so he ended up behind the airplane and when he struggled through the water to what he thought was the passenger door. We're Diane was. He was actually on the wrong side across the plane from where Diane was hanging upside down trapped in her lap seat belt but time I got to the door in God to try to open it and when it did open and the water started rushing into plane was almost completely broken windshield and the side door windows. I'm lane lean coffee and a water halfway on the wing with my arm trying to open the door open and try to reach into get Diane and then all of a sudden the plane just submerges Bluewater. That's how it ended. The plane did not float. It sank in mere seconds. Dan couldn't get out of her seatbelt. He said and he couldn't help her. Because there simply wasn't time fifteen twenty seconds the plane was went down. He is last glimpse. Diane was not that haunting image of her hair in the airplanes door. No one knows how that happened. No the last he saw Diane and you said the site he cannot stop. See his diane trapped in her seat belt upside down and sinking and calling out for him to save her. What was that like horrifying? It was watching good down there with her. It was twenty seconds before were the two most happiest people pull in the world and and my laugh was torn to pieces. That moment. You know we never never ever anticipated something like this. What did you do right ten? When that plane went down hoping somehow she would be able to get that seat built up some women around just to see if I can official pop up somewhere that she? She put off Chemo but she did not know he said the only thing that floated up was that one Duffel bag the one continues continues close and the twenty two hundred dollars saved for the trip. A fact pointed to by many law officers as suspicious they would save and why did he only get his clothes and the money and let her clothes go sinking down to the bottom of the lake. Just random look officers officers will say there's no accident in life. Things are either on purpose or they don't have you know people always speculate but it was just a random the by chance speculate. That's what people did all right that a man who truly love term might have tried harder might have sacrificed afterwards. This became a problem for some of the people who are looking into the incident because numbers of them. Say God that was me. I would have done anything. I would have drowned if I had I would get into. That plane. Would've got her out of there. I would have saved her somehow even if I died in the process you do. That is do that when you eh couch with a cup of coffee but not so easy when you're fifteen twenty seconds and the plane is thinking in front of you can open the door when you in the door. Two planes almost completely underwater and I don't visualize them picture what this was and how quickly does happen but to go over. Then he said was overwhelming numbing shock my limbs were starting at Phnom could barely do the paddling to in order to stay afloat so I ended up. We'll take that one back peddling docu style and got it's a short and spent the next few days and and shock in shock. He ran he said head around the country for weeks New York City and finally to Dallas. We're turning himself in. Seem like very that idea. Does that sound like Romeo and Juliet or something else. Altogether coming up justice delayed or justice denied. This is one of those kind of cases where really you're the only person on the planet who knows the truth when dateline continues.

"Gina Johnson called the flathead county sheriff's department about a certain ex-boyfriend. She didn't have to wait long for sheriff. Jim Dupont to return her call. You sounded excited. You sounded very excited. And I guess that he knew I was telling the truth because I told him details that has not been published. That Jarrett had actually told me. I don't know when I've spoken to somebody who brought an end to an international manhunt before before. I figured it happened all the time. It didn't take long after that. That was found an old mugshot of this Michael. Michael Lee Smith turned out. He'd been arrested twice for burglary back in those early years in Dallas and that photograph looked like his high school picture. Sure a lot so on a Wednesday morning in August two thousand six twenty four years after a Cessna one fifty sank into the frigid depths of little bitter Root Lake Lake. A team of plain clothes officers knocked at the door of an upscale house in Plano Texas. And there he was Nice Young Guy. A Polo shirt asked. If I'm Michael Smith I go yeah another guy jumps on the side. It's a good at my face. This is jared ambrose the fugitive so many had searched for the man who pulled off the impossible at vanished for decades. Did you know immediately. The JIG was up I did not know I didn't know I. I was very disoriented. And so what happened was the guy had a papers in his hands and the top of the papers it had my it also just from Brunswick and so I saw that I pretty much put the dust together pretty quickly yeah. It's one of the officers to fetch the pet parrot. He put out on the patio to catch the morning sun. What went through your mind when you realized OK finally got me? That was fairly calm. I didn't really you know sort of process all this. And then just like that. He was in jail in a padded added cell as he recalls it deemed a suicide risks. But there wasn't upside he got to call home to talk to his parents for the first time in nearly only a quarter century. What was that conversation like? You know surprisingly very calm and it was like nothing ever happened almost to catch up with them. He was amazing. They never saw lost hope over the years they never actually moved switch houses and change a number because they always come back. There forgot you never So why why did he or he and Diane decide they just had to run away in the first place. Why come up with that crazy plan? And why did he run after she was killed. How did he pull off his decades long disappearing that that is quite a story straight Outta them movie when people say what is this story about in some people probably see it as a crime story some people see it as a love story definitely a love story and unfortunately fortunately a tragic accident happened in hand into drowning and I went to the shock and lost basic my mind after he left at Lake in Montana he took a train New York and then hitchhiked to Texas where the man he was riding with stole the twenty two hundred dollars Eric Advantage advantage to save in one of those duffle bags when the plane went down so there he was in Texas totally destitute hungry homeless hopeless and then he met a guy who gave him a place to stay for free at told him how to get a new identity a went to a cemetery and found somebody deceased there was like a year old and so he would not have any record on him dental records doctors remers or anything I think he was about your age? He's about close to my age. Michael Lee Smith of all the names per generic name and same day went to the records building in Dallas and ask for a birth certificate. Here's first name. Here's his birthday. Five minutes later. The Guy came back with a certified copy stamped. No questions asked side a little harder these days i. I don't think you can do that these days. But back. Then he could and he used that birth certificate driver's license and Social Security Card and then a job as a carpenter uh-huh and a ged and eventually a degree from the University of Texas Arlington Aerospace Engineering. Then hiccup gotten when you start applying for security clearances with erased jobs. They're gonNA dig deep into your background and I knew that they would probably probably find them. Not Michael Smith and so I kind of pretty much the side of the time to switch to get into computers. He turned out to be quite an and entrepreneur. Is Tech Support Private Lesson Web Design Company. Lots of money. Nice Big House. Shit what two or three cars. The couple of cars yeah. It was toys a lot of hard work over the years and eventually so the work sort of became Salvation eventually he landed Honda racing as a client and with a US passport now. He traveled the world including that trip to Japan with Gina that we told you and then a few months after their breakup. Those officers were at his door and he was in. The clink was was kind of a lightbulb moment. First few days I kind of that. I figured out the only person who actually knew about my past that would do anything would have been jeanette so it was this relationship revenge. That's what it looked like to me. What is it a blessing in disguise? Though it was crazy it sounds you know after twenty for years living is Michael Smith. I finally get my family back again but blessing. You're not remember. There was a steep penalty waiting to be paid Yorick can browser was facing a charge of negligent homicide back in Montana and no matter that he matured into that sleek and polished business owner in Plano. Texas you was facing as much as a decade and the very humble confines of a state prison coming up for for the first time in public the pilot tells his story. I'm laying coffee and a water halfway on the wing with my arm trying to open the door open and try to reach into get Dan.

"It was when the Royal Canadian Mounted Police showed up the mystery behind what happened a little bitter root late finally like the plane itself emerged into something like Claritin or at least the who is who and what they were doing their the young pilot nineteen year old Jerry Imbros ICK. Jerry's girlfriend eighteen year old. Diane Babcock call descending in the plane do her death. I remember it being so unbelievable first of all that a plane had landed in but I considered our families lake and that someone was killed and that we had actually met the person who was flying on that plane now flathead county detectives said about trying to figure out exactly what happened when the plane came down. And how and why death came to Diane Dan. We concluded that she did. She died by drowning. Dan Did have a broken collarbone fracture in her neck and a bruise to the right side of her forehead ahead. All most likely incurred the plane hit the water but they were all survivable injuries. Except when he found Diane she was still still strapped in. So maybe the seat belt instead of saving her life helped ended. Maybe the buckle. Jan Pat Walsh is a retired detective. Dude he was a deputy back in her lap. Belt had flipped over. So the buckle was against her body or she couldn't have reached it in a hurry without realizing realizing and so the booklet actually flipped around. Yes it slept on a flipped around which is going to happen. If it's a little bit loose loose not cinch down tight but aside from that. The belt was not malfunctioning. In any way it wasn't jammed it wasn't locked and yet it was obvious obvious. Diane did not even try to get it open. Not like you'd think person would if your life depended on it. One of the first things I checked. During the topsy was her fingernails. None of her nails were broke. There was no bruising or anything of the fingertips and you just imagine yourself being in a craft that sinking thinking on your whole on rambling. You know the belt stuck and now you can't get the belt free. I'd probably break my finger trying to get the thing break. Ah if nothing else by straining pulling just on the belt fruitlessly did on an until you have to give it up you know so there was none of that and that. Ah I don't understand that today. Why did that happen? And then suddenly a new twist dance doctor revealed to investigators that just days before the crash rash under death. She'd had an abortion. So that raise deputy Jim Dupont's antenna especially given what Jerry had said in one of those calls to his friend taped by the RCMP. After the crash you will recur to lowest or something like that. Can't live without. Ooh and then go through your mind at that point. Did he really want her to be there. Did he really want to run away with her forever. She is the one that was madly in love with him. It probably wasn't the same type of issue in reverse. So maybe the crash presented an opportunity to not have clean girlfriend. Or maybe his Diane's family would later claim she was a vulnerable young woman afraid of being left by the only lover she'd ever had bad and her emotions told her to get on board. Even if Jerry didn't really want her to Jim a pilot remember had been doing some informed thinking. Aw and he figured Jerry would certainly have had time to save Diane's life if she wanted to I would guess you'd be lucky to get five minutes in five minutes. It's a long time when you're when you're in hurry. You can do a lot of things in five minutes and you can get two people out of an airplane and get what you want out of it and if there was that much time. Why didn't Jerry get her out of their? Why didn't even take out the two-person rubber raft? He'd stashed in the cargo compartment. The theory began to harden in the deputies head. It could have gotten her out of there. That's my opinion. It's my opinion as he could and you must have been thinking that at the time I was concerned why because I know he also he also got out with his equipment. Oh yes jerry's equipment that Duffel bag wrapped in green plastic plastic. He was seen with it on shore after the crash it contained his clothes and money though they didn't know that for quite a while. Twenty two hundred in bucks in Diane Mostly Diane had saved for the trip. I thought it was very convenient that He got that bag and He wasn't able to get her out convenient. It's convenient for hand. Not so convenient for her. No no we. We've all been eighteen in love and and we know how intense that is. If that's the woman I was GonNa with and run away with and I couldn't get her out of the airplane our plan you would have found me in it too and that really was the heart of your belief at this guy had done it on purpose. I think he took a took advantage of an opportunity and let her go down or just didn't try to save himself not her. I'm one of the two things happened. That's I I don't know how you could explain it any other way and there was one more thing troubling Jim dupond. Ab more important than all the other clues namely if Jerry Ambrosi didn't do anything wrong why did he run long. After Poor Diane was lifted out of little a bitter Root Lake. She was laid to rest in a small family plot in a cemetery across the border in British Columbia and in Montana lawmen decided what Jerry did was a crime. They filed charges negligent homicide so Jerry PROZAC was now wanted man a few and the men hunt was on coming up from Canada to the US to south of the border. I wasn't sure he wasn't in Mexico and more tragedy for Diane's father how much more can a family injure.

"Days of August in one thousand nine hundred eighty two Canadian search and rescue had been scouring the mountains for a week for probably a crashed airplane and the missing teenagers. Jerry Ambrosi Diane Babcock. What happened then stopped them? Cold back in Vancouver. A close friend of the couples had received a phone call and ED is hard to believe that the call was said to be from the missing pilot himself. Jerry Umbro's nick. What did you think when you heard? That is just floored. I couldn't comprehend I. I don't think anyone could when I first heard this. I'm going. You've gotta be kidding me but it was true at least according to the friend. A young man named Tom Paulauskas reported the Jerry called him with an astonishing story. A story that explain what happened that small plane they been looking for the plane had been ditched. Jerry claim to his friend crashed on purpose onto the surface of lake across the border in Montana and Dan was still in the plane deep in the cold. Cold water a little bitter Root Lake at Gerry in shock he. I told a friend in that phone call had fled the scene of the crash calling his friends somehow now from a bus terminal in New York City I I think one of the things that was so captivating about the story for everyone was. Yeah this notion that somehow this young couple could actually pull off if this incredible magical disappearing act the idea that they'd successfully run away to be together right and that they had defied all odds they made it. And then you hear that well. He's crashed the plane and her bodies at the bottom of the lake. And he's on the run. It becomes a completely different that story but investigators reporters alike wondered. Was Jerry's friend Tom Telling the truth about that phone call. They put him to the polygraph and he was to be truthful. All this was pre Internet of course. And that's probably why the RCMP. Had No idea that a sheriff down there in Montana Santa had just begun investigating oil sheen on the water and reports of a stranger wandering the shoreline and then after that phone call from Jerry the rcmp called the sheriff and told him about the young couple on the plane. Way Down deep in the young woman still inside constable beaters in what Montana to help out and in Vancouver. The mounties put a tap on Tom's phone. Just in case Jerry called again and sure enough he did this. I talked to Tom. Pilaff from Louisville man the pro where search for Lewis Show Mayor in Dallas Yeah the Jerry would use an alias strange but that he was at a phone booth near this store in East Dallas Texas while doing then as they talked. Jerry offered a version of the story. That didn't sound much at all. Like the story of Romeo and Juliet and all the headlines. Our Yeah because I was going to shoot them because she wasn't lois or something like that but it wasn't because we both want to run away from home. It was because I wanted to get away a long cat. Liver's okay you're Berkeley. Like he didn't really care what she did but then later same conversation. Jerry said that losing Diane. Dan was like half of him. Dying regard alone. Jerry was calling. He told his friend. Try to make sure Diane was found but given the circumstances of Dan's death. He said he would not be coming home. Would not turn himself in. They find a place where the dead bodies. And I'M GONNA be a killer license. LICEU wants to somebody look for you. Know the only real listen. I mean you can be so you don't want somebody that can do doing anything like pick the wounded overpriced overpriced but Jerry and already told Tom his decision was made. He wasn't coming home. Ever come by Jerry Doc was stupid. Everyone's looking for you everyone. Listen they're gonNA look funny report ever did you wonder why he wouldn't launch a lost his girlfriend why he wouldn't kind of throw himself on mercy of the court and come back and apologize and try to get all of his life. I believe that too and Tom. His friend really really worked on him to do that. Because you know the longer you leave it the worse it gets the story gets bigger and bigger as to why you ran away. You know you know becomes more suspicious and a bigger story. So reporter. Margot Harper embarked on her first international assignment. Two little bitter Root Lake where they believed they were very close to finding the airplane. And Diane and I remember thinking Amit kind of hoping against I hope that that somehow maybe maybe she escaped. Somehow you know I mean it seemed inconceivable that the body and the plane could be anyone but her. But you just don't know until you. Actually we see and see she did. She arrived at the lake shore. Just in time to see the plane emerged in the water with that indelible image. The girls hair stuck in the door or long blond locks wet from waving around in the water. I remember looking at it and thinking. Oh my God you know it God she looks like Oh feeling From Hamlet I remember just walking over to the plane and I looked inside and and she ah she was perfectly Preserved in the lake was so cold she was kind of slumped over my recollections. Her head was against the side of the door her hair was streaming out and she just looked like she was asleep. You've never forgotten that image with her hair streaming out the window and coming out about that. Watery grave is one that has really haunted me. I think almost like like no other image in my career after Diane. Dan was taken away. The sheriff invited Margot back to the hangar. To see what else was on the plane they had taken out a life raft. There's some kind of disguises survival gear. There was another Duffel bag with sleeping bags and extra clothing and it became in that moment crystal clear what the plan had been. It was clear that they were going to you. You know crashed the plane dump the plane ditch it and jump into a life raft and make their way to shore and try to disguise themselves somehow and so. I've filed a story the next day in the Vancouver Sun which was front page confirming the I want to say the elopement theory. But it's hardly an elopement now. Is that the at something else. It's a it's an escape fantasy really but the reality an was dead and to law enforcement agencies suit two countries were now at work to solve the mystery of what really happened. Little bitter root late coming up it could have gotten her out of there. That's my opinion more questions about what happened and suspicion about why did he really want to run away with her forever. If that's the woman I was going to Elope with an I couldn't get her out of the airplane. You would have found me in two when dateline continues..

"Events around little bitter Root Lake were beyond puzzling. The Autumn Chill descended strange young man. The plane the lake the dead girl trapped in the plane then deputy sheriff. Jim pod had trouble shaking that image. Everything starts to transform in your brain of what happened that day. What happened to her when she went down? The the knowing that you're doomed type of thing. But where did she come from. Why a few hundred miles north west a little bitter root across the border in Canada in the heart of British Columbia's there's Okinawan valley is a sweet small city called ten Tipton? Where on a Monday morning almost a month before they fish that plane out of the Lake Royal Canadian Canadian Mounted Police Constable? Ron Peterson noticed. Unusual activity are the airport for. I saw the search and rescue aircraft raft in because that always has been search base to look for somebody. Yeah when I see things like that I I'd like to know what's going on what was going on. mm-hmm was indeed search for a small plane. Gone missing the previous evening constable found out it was a training aircraft from Vancouver four hours to the West which had flown defendant in the day before with two on board both teenagers. I found out a little bit unusual especially those days. 'cause nineteen twenty year olds didn't file the assurer experience. No and that terrain can be very treacherous. The the constable though no one asked him to started poking around I spoke to the Main reviewer he service aircraft he filled them up with fuel and and spent the afternoon beside the aircraft on a blanket and they were reorganizing stuff out of the airplane. And and putting it in these bags did you wonder if maybe they were smuggling something. They didn't know then. Gusta Peterson went looking for witnesses. You may have seen the plane flying by. And yes several did they noticed because it had gone up into a narrow windy valley posted no-fly zone and nod on the flight plan it buzzed Ski Mountain Outside Town and the nearby observatory with its massive radio telescopes. I spoke to the fellow there and I said What happens if somebody flies over? Does anything trigger an alarm or anything like that and he said. Oh yes. This is a no fly zone over here and there was a disturbance it's registered. He said that was a small airplane because he said we've seen it before. But after that. No idea where the plane went and there was no emergency. locator the transmitter on board. Since it was training aircraft and wasn't usually more than twenty five miles from Vancouver which one of the that you thought. Maybe they'd crashed in the Bush somewhere and just absolutely absolutely everybody was looking for this plant. That's right parties that that very same summer. Monday cub reporter brand new twenty the two years old. I just started working at the Vancouver Sun. Newspaper Margot Harper heard about the missing plane Doug Little and came up with the names. The people on board Uris Law Umbro's Iq the pilot known jerry a nineteen year old who'd solo followed just a year before emigrating from Poland at the age of ten and a boy scout with dreams of becoming a commercial airline pilot and his passenger and girlfriend eighteen year old. Diane Babcock she was a very good student. She was a runner. She was set on a career in nursing. You know she was ambitious and she was determined to be successful. When Margot Harper started nosing around the high school from which Jerry and Diane had so recently graduated she learned a theory was rapidly circulating here at theory with an ancient and universal theme? What emerged uh right away? Was the suggestion that they were kind of a Romeo and Juliet. Couple that their families had been disapproving of their your relationship and the suggestion emerged that they were trying to run away together. That was the suggestion that they in fact had been trying to get away from parental pressure. Yeah sure I'm an unhappy. Social Scene Uric this strong parental influence that he was trying to get away from a father who was too tough on the numbers or something and she had a family. That didn't want her involved with this Polish kid and from the wrong side of the tracks. Trey Yeah Romeo and Juliet indeed. According to Diane's Family I spoke with Mr Babcock. Diane's father who soundly dismissed is that theory and said that there was no reason that they would have had to elope and have Jerry and Diane had wanted to be together. that they could have been together together and I remember thinking at the time. It didn't quite ring true to Anna. I wondered whether Mister Babcock was was is appealing to his daughter through the media to come home if she was out there somewhere that everything would be okay They were absolutely out of their minds. with you know worry desperation fear at that point their daughter was simply missing. And so it was Jerry so as the plane and then so it went families frantic with worry search and rescue missions flying all over British Columbia wondering where those teenagers could have gone. And then a week later everything changed with a strange and alarming phone call from New York City. What was that like stunning coming up? By top allow allows one mystery solved so many more not arrogant forever.

"As summer came to a close in one thousand nine hundred eighty two there were rumours in the water. Crazy idea was making the rounds. The mysterious airplane had landed may be even crashed on pristine gene little bitter Root Lake and that the odd young man who wandered the shoreline encountering several locals was perhaps the pilot. I don't remember being afraid. He might come back or anything like that. Forgot about it. I think we kind of forgot about it But naturally the sheriff heard about all this and said a young deputy name Jim Dupont to take a look around by the time. We talked to Dupont back in two thousand thousand eight. He'd been looking at the mystery for most of his career. In fact our old video here and said how long we've been following this story anyway. Dupont on was assigned the case way back in nineteen eighty two partly because he was a private pilot as well as a deputy so he knew a thing or two about small planes mm-hmm and low and behold in the very spot where twins Jimmy. Johns said the young man at built a fire. We indeed found a little fire ring and right away the way I found what's called a gust lock and a gust lock. It's bent piece of metal that actually fits into the yoke of an airplane in the fire in the burned up in the Fire and plus there was some wires in a Jack Plug on a microphone. Jack and I knew it was unlike Jack from an airplane so so what what. Then I actually took that gust lock and went to the airport found a one fifty and indeed it fit to one fifty that I looked at one fifty. Would it'd be a Cessna one fifty like this one. So does that mean the rest of a Cessna. One fifty was indeed in the lake. Just like the gossipers were saying Dupont want reported all this to his boss the sheriff and the share of called in a couple of expert divers recall and Ernie Free Perry. The sheriff believed that there was a plane in the slake and earn. I suited up and we're on boats that were trying to locate it with fish. Finders you can only imagine the the challenge back then technology being what it was in the nineteen eighties and the lake in spots. Be well over two hundred feet deep. Still the sheriff had confidence they'd find the plane and alerted the media which certainly came to watch the divers diving and listen to the sheriff's optimistic daily daily predictions overly optimistic predictions. He said that the media quite a few times. Today's the day and and we'd go out and everybody work hard and it wouldn't happen. They'd all go home again and then the next day. Today's the day I I mean everybody was doing what they can do. That went on for days more than a week. So maybe all that talk about an airplane in the lake was just that Taw walk. Then the share of heard about a thing jake did was new at the time called side scanning sonar so they brought one of those in lowered it way down to the bottom. If we don't get results here today or tomorrow We will call off the search because there's a limit to your resources from in time and effort but just as sheriff was about to give up a breakthrough when we gotta hit on the Sonar. He also brought a here remote remote camera that you know that had an umbilical and basically flu that camera down to the aircraft there it was the plane right there on the video screen. What was it like to see that thing? Do you remember if it was actually somewhat satisfying to know all the hours that suspend out there looking at really was there except now there was another problem. The plane was more than two hundred fifty feet down way too deep to safely. Send the divers so the used the submersible cameras. The guide hooks onto the airplane. And they've pulled it up to a depth of about one hundred feet where the divers were percent down to retrieve it. The water was very clear they could see the plane almost like it was flying down the Col- cold water but then they saw something. What the Hell's the plane wasn't empty inside stopped pleasant when you see that the body of a woman and just a girl really? She was sitting in the passenger seat and our seatbelt was still on but would she look as I recall she was a pretty girl and she was a young girl and it was. It was just a shame. The divers each got behind a wing flew the plane to the surface as the plane came out the crowd watching saw something many of the people here would never forget. The girls hair was stuck in the door and her long locks were waving in the water. The twins were there crowded up close as little more than I expected ever. We're pulling it out and the hairs hanging out. Never seen in person before they put a sheet over the aircraft window the shield prying eyes while the law men moved in. I removed her and just took her immediately. Down to our state state pathologist amazulu. What sort of condition was your body? She was in excellent condition. She just looked like she was actually sleeping a That was part butter. The girl in the lake. Who was she? What was she doing alone? In the passenger seat of a Cessna one fifty fifty in the bottom of the Montana Lake and if she was the passenger where was the pilot coming up in a modern twist on a story oldest time. What emerged was the suggestion that they were kind of a Romeo Jio and Juliet that their families had been disapproving of their relationship eloping? That was the suggestion when dateline continues.

It's like if you're directing something and you have a frame and you can kind of populate that frame that increment of space with a story like that was deeply appealing to make sure or but but director is also like twenty jobs and which is so overwhelming to me. Because you know if we're if we're going with this analogy of interior design and restoration. I feel like director is not only the architect but also the contractor. You have to take out the subcontract as like lighting and editing and and so you have to design and also do all of the also find emotionality and like the texture. Yeah but but I am inherently like a multitasker and I think I would be very bored to only the visuals right. So it's like. It is the visuals in. I mean not to sound like Uber pretentious. But it's really true. That like the visuals mood right. which is an emotional you know? And so that informs informs like what you see in the space and how you feel in the space as an actor is like Ooh even when you put on your wardrobe for the first time for character you know I kind of know who this person. Yeah it's like putting on the kind of visual sort of cloaks of who this person is who this whole world would this. This world is going to be and that especially it starts with the words it starts with how you sort of build kind of even just the pros of the general description of the room and then what that translates I really love that kind of multifaceted intricate kind of layered four D. way of expressing. Yeah that's a good way to put it in a Ford. Did it but also the idea that you because you've directed yourself as an actor to which to me is is seems like how does someone how do you. How are you able to you know like remove all of the big picture stuff in your head where the director brain nine and just focus on the moment the performer brain without judging the right when getting in the way of each other I think that there is a squeamishness that some people feel that? Oh God I can't see myself do acting you know and I don't have that thing so because I noticed it was like Why is the people? Find that so weird. Okay so.
