    Mr. Hodel, I just finished looking at the PDF of the surveillance recordings. You state that the home had a dirt floor at the time of the recordings. Now it has concrete. Has anyone considered excavating it to determine if there are remains there pertaining to the mystery woman or anyone else? Have you had any contact with current owner? I understand he affected a renovation after purchasing it in the early 2000’s?

    Tony: The basement was partially renovated, but also much of the area remains as it was in 1940s. I have had contact with the current owner. The “new new” owner purchased the home in 2012. The previous owner, Xorin Balbes (2002-2012) did have major renovations in all rooms, and partial in the basement. Stay tuned, I anticipate new information on this in the near future and will post when received. Best Regds, Steve
