Chris George and Tracy Ocasio Missing: Will New Witnesses Be The Tell Tale Heart To Find Them?

Volume I  Volume II

Hearken! And Observe how healthily- how calmly I can tell you the whole story! -Poe

The last verifiable interaction with Chris George was at approximately 6PM on February 11, 2009.

Apopka Police came upon Jimmy Hataway, Tyler Watters and Brandon Losik in the area of Ocoee Apopka rd emerging from the woods, with Chris’s white Xterra in full view from the road.

Watters and Hataway were cuffed at the scene and questioned separately for 6 hours.< ?xml:namespace prefix ="" o />

Their stories did not match.

The officers were satisfied. My manner had convinced them. I was singularly at ease. They sat, and while I answered cheerily, they chatted of familiar things. But, ere long, I felt myself getting pale and wished them gone.

Tyler Watters Account (Abridged):

Tyler Watters and cousins Hutto in Back - Copy

At about 1:30AM February 12, 2009, Chris drove into the woods off of < ?xml:namespace prefix ="" st1 />Ocoee Apopka Rd. He was high and the pair had been doing drugs earlier.

He ran out of the truck, yelling “If you wanna be a G you gotta roll like a G.” He said that Chris dropped his phone, his keys, the pair stopped for a second to look on the ground for it and then Chris kept running.

Tyler said he ran after Chris until the area got marshy, he stopped, turned around and started walking back to the truck.  He said he could not find the keys or Chris’s phone, so he called a friend to pick him up. The girls at Sun Resorts had passed out early, they slept through the whole thing until morning when they dropped him and Jimmy off at the “wrecked truck” to look for Chris.

Jimmy Hataways Account (Abridged):

Hataway bong and chain

Tyler called him and told him that Chris wigged out and ran into the woods leaving him stranded.  He said he borrowed one of the girl’s vehicles to go pick Tyler up and the girls dropped them off the next morning at the truck to look for Chris. The girls crashed early and slept through the whole thing. The next day they packed snacks, waters and headed out into the woods to look for Chris. Next thing he knew, cops were on the side of the road.

There are several versions of these, but you get the idea. What is astounding to me is that these two were well aware there was a guard shack at the entrance of the park, and a closed circuit camera trained on cars entering and exiting. I guess they figured out they had some time before Apopka PD would learn that.

They were right.

They would not be questioned again for months. In fact, not until after May 28, 2009.


The Truth

Focusing specifically on the events of February 11, 2009 and Chris George’s arrivals and exits from Sun Resorts

Chris arrives at Sun Resorts about 2:15PM, leaves about 2:30PM with Jimmy Hataway.

According to Hataway, Chris leaves him at a location of a person he did not know for about 3 hours. They are back at the park at 5:10PM.

The group hangs out together for about 30 minutes and Tyler Watters asks Chris if he would take him to his grandmother’s house for a change of clothes if he pays him $20 for gas. Chris’s truck pulls out of Sun Resorts at 5:40PM.

At approximately 10PM, Watters calls one of the female residents of Lot #269 announcing Chris left him stranded in the woods and he needed a ride. He said he had been walking a while, and would be on Keene Rd. Hataway and the girls picked him up a few minutes later on Keene.

Watters was wearing a white t-shirt and jeans without a smudge on him, not a burr or a scratch. It was not what he wore when he left and is presumed to be the “change of clothes” after showering at his grandmothers. His boots were not muddy and he was carrying the duffel bag he left with.

Rosemary Watters has been interviewed and stated that Tyler definitely was there and showered, however, she never saw Chris. She went on to say she was aware of the truck parked outside, but did not notice if someone was sitting in it.

After the foursome arrived back at Sun Resorts, Tyler made several calls discussing the incident with animated detail. Although he had his own phone, he was using one of the female witnesses, which again, LE was not aware of until months later.  

Within 15 minutes, Hataway and Watters requested the girls take them back out to the scene to look for Chris.

At this point, both the pickup of Watters and the drop off of both he and Hataway, occurred on Keene Rd.  At no time during either, was the White Xterra visible to anyone from the road and had been described as “deep in the woods” by Watters.

At approximately 11:30PM the truck was spotted pulling into the space at Lot 269 at Sun Resorts where it would remain until the next morning. 

The female witnesses, who had been visiting a relative of one of the women within the park; noticed upon their return to Lot #269 Chris George’s white Xterra was parked outside. Both heaved a sigh of relief.

As they bounded in the door to participate in the “crisis averted” celebration they expected to be walking into, they quickly learned that was not the case.

Upon the eighth night I was more than usually cautious in opening the door. A watch’s minute hand moves more quickly than did mine. Never before that night had I felt the extent of my own powers – of my sagacity.

If Chris truly was in the woods, Jimmy and Tyler just removed his only means to get out and the girls called them on it.

Hataway reasoned with them to think it through. “If” there was drugs or evidence of drug use in the vehicle, and it was found on the side of the road, Chris would be arrested as the owner and they would all be in trouble.  

Watters chimed in that Chris had called his Father to say he was fine, according to his brother, to put their collective minds at ease.

Chris George’s Father had been deceased for 11 years and he does not have a brother.

There were two voice mail messages received between the alleged “accident” and the return of the truck to the trailer, one from the girls, and one from Hataway:

..”Chris, this is (redacted). We are worried about you call us and tell us where you are and we will come get you. At least call and tell us your ok or whatever.

..Yo- This is Yarr.  We got your stuff and your bag. Call me. It’s Yarr..”

There was no message from Watters, and he must have not yet told the part of the story where Chris dropped his phone and could not find it to the rest of the group, rendering their messages useless.

Early the next morning, Hataway and Watters cleaned the vehicle.

The White Xterra Chris George leased to begin his mobile detailing business, was being detailed without him.

Jimmy removed a section of barbed wire from the front fender and he and Watters both checked the wheel wells and under carriage for what they said could be used for “stash”. Nothing was found.

At 7AM, after telling the girls they were going back to look for Chris, and would call for a ride once they put the truck back, Hataway and Watters left Sun Resorts.

After a few hours, when Watters did not answer the phone he was borrowing from one of the girls, they drove to the scene and saw nothing but a black sedan parked on the side of Keene Rd. Yes, you read that correctly. The female witnesses were told the car “wrecked” on Keene, when in fact, it was ultimately located on Ocoee Apopka Rd. 

Although it was clear the truck accident had been staged, including the placement of Chris George’s sunglasses in the grass outside the right front passenger door, the truck was not processed as a possible crime scene.  An accident report on the vehicle was filed by Apopka Police. 


According to sources within the investigation speaking to on the condition of anonymity, at the time Hataway and Watters were supposed to be putting the truck back in the early morning of February 12, 2009, they were spotted in Altamonte Springs, where it is believed Chris had been with Hataway the day before. 

Within 2 weeks of Chris’s disappearance, the last 4 people to see Chris George alive relocated to different areas of the state, except one: Jimmy Hataway.

The female witnesses, arguably the most critical to the investigation, were not interviewed.

I paced the floor to and fro with heavy strides, as if excited to fury by the observations of the men – but the noise steadily increased. Oh God! what could I do? I foamed – I raved – I swore! I swung the chair upon which I had been sitting, and grated it upon the boards, but the noise arose over all and continually increased.

One month later, In March, a friend of Jimmy Hataways who met him at Franks Place one evening says Hataway was “matter of fact” about the whole thing:

….” We were sitting at Frank’s and he points to this flyer on the bar, I did not know the dude or that Jimmy knew him either..

..” He pointed to it, and said that’s my buddy that was tweaked one night and ran into the woods.. He was yelling that the Mexican Mafia was after him.”

When I asked him if he felt Jimmy was lying, he replied:

..That’s just it, you could never tell with him. I have no idea. When we were kids I saw him lie about anything and people believed him.”

On the evening of April 14, 2009, Chris had been missing for 2 months.

On the evening of April 14, 2009 Tracy Ocasio may have unwittingly sealed a similar fate.

Located in Metro West, The Tap Room  was a favorite night spot for Tracy Ocasio and friends.

On the evening of April 14, Tracy Ocasio and Chris George began their single degree of separation: Paul Adam Hutto.


In Tracy’s own words:



Up until the above image of a post drafted by Tracy Ocasio herself and obtained exclusively by, Ocoee PD has been adamant that there were 2 separate incidents at the Tap Room, involving Tracy Ocasio,  Paul Hutto and an as yet un-named blonde woman believed to be Lori Coon Branic.

In other words, because Orlando Police Department believed they were seperate incidents, there were no corroborating witnesses to back up Tracy’s police report, and as the only complaining witness listed, when Tracy went missing, they could not proceed with the charge against Hutto. Hutto faced probation/parole violation from the incident. 

I gasped for breath – and yet the officers heard it not. I talked more quickly – more vehemently; but the noise steadily increased.

Branic is the wife of Paul Branic, former Hutto business partner and former performer alongside Alicia Hutto at Lollipops Gentlemen’s Club in Daytona Beach.


While Tracy appears to be familiar with the group that she ran into that evening, she clearly only knew Paul Hutto by his first name, and had dated someone in their “circle” a few weeks before. It is believed that is who she is referring to as “moron” in her post.

Obtained exclusively by, the complete Police reports of the incident involving Tracy Ocasio, the evening of April 14, 2009, into the early morning hours of April 15, 2009.

On April 17, it was alleged James Hataway punched a truck owned by a Donnaugh Robinson on AD Mimms Rd; he has since been acquitted of those charges. However, the incident occurred at a location Chris George visited the night before he disappeared. Hataway is pictured below at the municipal building answering the summons on April 19th.


On April 22nd Tracy Ocasio visited the Orlando Police Department to review a lineup and positively identified Paul Hutto as the man who shoved her to the ground outside The Tap Room at 12:30AM April 15th. She was adamant that she wished to press charges according to the reports.

On the initial officer’s statement, Paul Hutto was said to have left the scene with a friend driving a White Dodge Durango.  Lori Branic was issued a summons in January 2010 for failing to produce a driver’s license while driving a white 2004 Dodge Durango. The summons was satisfied after Ms. Branic produced her license a week later.

On May 26, 2009, Tracy Ocasio watched the Magic Game at the Tap Room.


According to early statements to police as well as mutual friends by Hataway, The Hutto brothers had attempted to watch THE MAGIC at the Tap Room earlier that evening, but had relocated to Gators when Paul was turned away because he was banned for the April incident.



There is an unknown witness apparently who claims to have not only been at The Tap Room that evening and Tracy Ocasio was the first person they saw.



On May 26, 2009, District Atty Patty White mailed a letter written May 22 to Tracy Ocasio asking her to verify charges for the second time. She never received it.

It was received by her parents, Joe and Liz Ocasio after she went missing from the Tap Room in the early morning hours of May 27.

Tracy and brother Joey O

On May 28 Tracy Ocasio’s bright yellow Chevy Cobalt was located on W Franklin St within 2 blocks of Hataway’s home with the front seats reclined.  Cadaver Dogs were deployed to the scene but did not “hit” on the car or anywhere near Hataway’s house.

Video of what was believed to be that of Tracy Ocasio in a light blue and white baseball hat, a sweatshirt and black heeled boots, leaving with an unidentified man was released. Kyle Coziel and Greg Toole, friends of Hataway and patrons of The Tap Room, identified him on the tape immediately.

Jimmy Hataway agreed to a voluntary search of the home on Lyle St in Ocoee he shared with his hearing impaired Father. He stated that he and Tracy hung out for a bit, and she left on her own. Hataway told his best friend he commonly referred to as his brother, Colt Hickox, that he took and passed a polygraph. Investigators refute that, going as far as stating that he “failed miserably.” 


Recent Developments involving two of Tracy’s friends possibly receiving text messages from her that evening saying “Gone to the Lake” could not be verified through cell phone records due to the length of time that has passed. However, two of her friends both agree it was sent either that evening, or the previous day.

When Hataway was interviewed, he told Ocoee Police they should be talking to Paul Hutto, the man who “attacked her at The Tap Room last month.” He also said that Hutto called him and told him if police asked him if he knew Ocasio, he was to deny it.  Both Paul and Jeremiah Hutto were questioned by detectives as a result, flatly denying they had anything to do with Ocasio’s disappearance. Although Paul Hutto had a solid alibis up till 2:30AM when Gators Bar closed, as an Ocoee detective was sitting across the bar from him waiting for a friend, both he and Jeremiah refused to take polygraph examinations.

It is not clear if Hataway also told Police at that time that he had been working for Hutto.    

Upon learning of Ms. Ocasio’s disappearance and the mutual acquaintances involved, Apopka PD renewed efforts to speak to Watters and Hataway in regards to Chris George’s disappearance. Although the White Nissan Xterra that belonged to Chris was now released to new owners, Apopka PD impounded the vehicle briefly for further processing . The results of that examination are being withheld for investigative reasons.

FDLE agents, at the request of Apopka PD, finally interviewed the female residents/witnesses from Sun Resorts in June, 2009.

And it was the mournful influence of the unperceived shadow that caused him to feel – although he neither saw nor heard – to feel the presence of my head within the room.

While it has been confirmed through those interviews that Hataway was not present when Chris George went missing, police believe he was part of a “set-up” regarding his disappearance and presumed murder. He is the only named suspect to date in the disappearance of Tracy Ocasio and is currently awaiting trial next week for the attempted murder of Casselberry woman Rachael Clark. On December 8, 2010 a previously continued docket sounding will be held in Seminole County to schedule trial, and possibly to entertain any last minute plea offers. Mr. Hataway is represented by Public Defender Leukel.

Tyler Watters is on bond awaiting trial for charges for trafficking in over 4 grams of heroin, and recently hired private counsel Victor Mead. His next hearing is scheduled for February 2, 2011.


Paul Hutto is pending driver license suspension for non-payment of a careless driving and non-wear of seatbelt charge from September 2010. He has not been charged with the assault on Tracy Ocasio as the charge pending at the time of her disappearance did not have a “corroborating witness”.

Unknown Hutto

Anthony Zedde, president of Anthony Zedde’s Lake Clearing Services, who is believed to be the former employer of Jeremiah and Paul Hutto,  is on bond awaiting trial for trafficking in dillaud and has entered a no contest plea for trafficking in heroin. His current docket shows a capias was issued on November 17, 2010 on the substance offense felony, for which he is due in court this Thursday December 2, 2010.


Last week, the parents of Tracy Ocasio and a Tampa news station received a letter from a man claiming to be the former boyfriend of the Mother of Jimmy Hataway’s daughter, Amanda Case.


Adam Craig, who dated Case briefly in 2007 and claims to have met Hataway, produced a letter and map of 2 locations where he states that Case told him 3 bodies of individuals, in which she participated in their murders, would be located.

Adam Craig

An Ocoee detective was dispatched to Craig’s Lakeland residence and while the claims appear to be largely discounted, they remain under investigation at the time of this publication.

Adam Craig is currently facing felony charges for allegedly running into a man with his vehicle, and has had prior drug convictions. According to his face book, the prosecution in his instant case has offered a plea deal of 6 years.

It is possible Mr. Craig may be attempting to affect his current criminal trial by alleging he has information in other cases. 

Now this is the point. You fancy me mad. Madmen know nothing. But you should have seen me. You should have seen how wisely I proceeded – with what caution – with what foresight


The investigations into the disappearance of Chris George and Tracy Ocasio are ongoing.

    one last post i do hope the best all of these families find out what happened to their loved ones and the right people are served justice

    Thank you.

    Hopefully, if you can contribute to that, you will.


  2. ex gf says:

    I looked back and saw there is no tatoo on Paul’s neck. So who is the man in the picture? Is he another potential conspirator (for lack of a better word).

    I too wish the families of the missing a blessed holiday season. The same sentiment to you and your team Blink!

  3. Hope/Pray/Believe says:

    D- I believe your questions were answered as to how and why your friends picture got up there. Simply put your friends picture was mistaken as a picture of Jeremiah Hutto. I don’t know if you know or have ever seen a picture of Jeremiah but they do look similar in build, hair color, and other small ways. Easy to get mistaken for one another. But the tattoo is the one thing that stands out the most as a difference between the two. Now on the other hand the best way to have the picture taken down is to ask nicely if B would remove it since it was an honest mistake.

    Now this is a general comment because some people are just so darn rude. I am not intending this for any one particular person. The words Please and Thank You never hurt anything. I do not know B either, however I can’t help but think that she is probably my elder (no offense to B)and I was brought up to respect my elders. Simple words such as please, thank you, excuse me, your welcome, are always nice to hear and usually go a long way in getting what you want and making your point.

    Lastly- When reading these articles, its not about the pictures but about the words contained within the article and the people that are missing and the ones that love and miss them. It’s about finding these people who (and I hesitate to say it because I hate to believe it’s true) are dead and bringing them home so that at the very least their families can lay them to rest and have some peace of mind. Instead of laying their head down to sleep at night having no clue where their loved ones are and what has come of them. I will be saying a prayer that God will bless these families and calm their hearts during this holiday season. Because I can’t imagine anything worse as a parent then to not know where your child is or what has happened to them. SO many of us have so much to be thankful for this holiday season. My wish for this Christmas is that the Ocasio’s and the George’s get the answers and closure that they so deeply deserve. God bless you all and Merry Christmas! (Also hoping I have not offended anyone as that was not my intention)

    yes hope you are right about all you said but i know that with such sensitive material this website is talking about a mistaken picture is a huge deal but your right i maybe could have been a little more nicer thanks

    To all:
    Today is Christmas eve and I miss the little things we took for granted from Tracy. She used to LOVE Christmas and no matter how old she was, on December 24th she was always like a little girl again! I work in retail so when I used to get home on the 24th I always wanted to just “vegetate” but she would not allow that! She was always excited, gitty, full of energy and wore me down to where I had no choice but to give in to her and “celebrate” the day. I used to act like it was a burden to kid around with her…now I look back and I wish I had those days back.

    We will never truly have closure because we’ve lost her…for ever. However we yearn to know what happened, to bring her home and get justice. We miss her terribly but I take comfort to see that there are many people out there that truly care. I want to thank you all for your kind words and prayers especially right now during these difficult days for our family….Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.

    God Bless,
    Joe Ocasio

    I pray memories like you just mentioned sustain you and your family right now.


  8. acapella says:

    God Bless you, Mr. Ocasio, and your family, and all the families of missing loved ones…it’s so unfair. Tracy’s energy shines right through her photos and it is easy to imagine her spunky determination getting you excited about Christmas in spite of your weariness. Your daughter’s strength, loyalty, and ethical character, as well as her obvious beauty have been well documented in Blink’s articles. My prayers are with you. Dear Lord, Bring Tracy Home.

  9. acapella says:

    I want to wish you; Blink, your team, and all the loyal contributors on your amazing site a very Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New years. May this be the year of BLINK on crime! I also wish peace and happy memories to all the families of missing or murdered loved ones. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    God bless us all, everyone!

  11. Chris' mom says:

    d– That was big of you to concede that you could/should have responded differently. I agree that details are important and can often be the determining factor in a situation. However, I think it is good for all of us to remember that we, each and every one, are only human. Mistakes happen and when they do it is simply an opportunity for grace particularly when you know that the motivation isn’t malevolent.

    One of the things that drew me to Blink and that I continue to admire about her is her integrity. Add to that the fact that she cares deeply about her work and every individual that has met with tragedy. In my eyes she could make a host of mistakes and I would gladly overlook them simply because I know that she is doing her best and that ultimately she CARES.

    How I covet that level of concern by others that have/are investigating Chris’ case in other realms. To me, Blink has been a gift from God…sent to even things out a bit. She is effectively tipping the scales in the other direction.

    God has blessed me this Holiday Season as well by the kind words and well wishes that have been expressed here…you truly are an encouragement…each and every one.Thank you! –Rachael

    We are the sum of our parts, thank you for the kind words. While I am sad and frustrated that in less than 2 months it will be 2 years ago Chris disappeared, I am encouraged by developments that I believe will lead to what happened to Chris, and possibly Tracy.

    If people do not understand the perpetual limbo that loved ones of the missing are suspended in, I am not doing my job.B

  12. Frederick Lansing says:

    Not sure if I have read all the pertinent posts, but the female pictured in the middle of the two men, has a hairdo that precisely fits everyones description of what they think they are seeing, like “right side over ‘his’ ear”, or “ponytail tied up over right ear” and “rag on ‘his’ head” but what cinched it for me was the ridges you can clearly see in the back of the hairdo of the person walking in front of the gate (somehow thought to be a bike helmet????) the ridges(to rounded for helmet) quite likely are the braids. The “sunglasses” someone imagined are possibly the dark eyes plus shadow since her eyes are inset, and pronounced forehead adds to the effect. The shoes are clearly female, and the form of strolling as someone mentioned is markedly female. Males do not stroll with feet fully extended reaching forward to take the next step. Look back at the gate video picks and notice how small the neck is of the alleged person especially compared to the baggy shirt and the pronounced hairdo.

    It also fits the “hat turned to the right” theory, not sure how much you watch people, but on a physcological note, the “turnaround to look” adds to the unsure, did I do it right don’t want to muck it up, femine touch, gotta be like one O’ da boys. It usually happens when your brain is racing and you are having 2nd thoughts. Don’t misunderstand on the unsure part, I am only referring to that one action of parking the car for an accomplice,(prolly not the norm for a her) and not the actual assuredness with which ‘she’ (whoever it is) walks and carries ‘herself in day to day life, that, you have to force yourself NOT to do.

    Anyone who knows the female in the pic above could immediately identify the walkee by their walk and how they are carrying themselves etc.

    Also just read they found a body off in the woods, lemmee see if I can find it in my history trail for you. Methinks someone is talking as fast as they can move their lips.

  13. Frederick Lansing says:

    Don’t want to give any false hopes but thank Gawd for
    history, here is the link

    It does mention items found would help but they would not
    specify, if I remember George had a brown hoodee on and
    other specifics

  14. Frederick Lansing says:

    In my opinion only, me also thinks whoever did the “cop on a bike uniform” routine was either extremely sincere albeit overzealous OR was intended to blow smoke and mirrors, since the camera shot was not planned for and therefore unforeseen.Twood be quite handy later on in court….”weelll it could be this or that, it could have been Santa on
    a vacation and he wanted to remain annonymous so he disguised himself
    as an accomplice in a crime”…

    or not, you be the judge.

  15. susanm says:

    frederick,seems your right,a lot of trickery,(i doubt tracy was at hataway’s house ever,cadaver dogs were used ,no hits ,but what about regular scent dogs).calls for those florida sting masters to wrap their a-team brains round this one. one murder,but three ,four,this aint a simple gang.

  16. Christy says:

    I read the link you provided and all I can say is WTH? Hunters find what they believe to be human remains on Dec. 5th 2010, and the sheriff says they think that the burnt body could possibly be a suicide! They then go on to say there is no one missing that they’re looking for! Hello, how is this possible? Has anyone local heard anymore about this?

  17. Sdb says:

    Frederick, are you referring to Coralyn Masonet and the Jennifer Kesse case? Interesting. I googled Coralyn and it looks like she was in a karate championship in 2008. Do you think the Kesse video stills could be someone in karate/martial art clothes?
    Take a look.

    Tis Ms. Masonet, yes.

  18. Sdb says:

    Ok, I’ve convinced myself the POI in the Jennifer Kesse video shots is wearing a Judo Uniform. Does anyone else in this “gang” do martial arts?

    (Has this been discussed a million times before?..sorry if so)

  19. Sdb says:

    I’ll take that as a yes.

    Leave it to me to put a thread to sleep.

  20. Christy says:

    Hello Sdb and all~
    We’re all still here patiently waiting for someone in that group of friends to break their code of silence and come forward! Please, do it for all involved, Rachael (Chris’ Mom), his family and friend’s, the Ocasio Family, the Keese Family! Do it anonomously! Nobody has to know it was you!

    May we find Justice for the missing in the New Year


  21. Christy says:

    Happy New Year Blink and Rachael!

    Luv ya,

    Another staged crime scene in Apopka?

    Is it just that it’s a remote area or would a criminal chose it because to be investigated by the APD is considered to be a “get out of jail free” card?

    Although this time it looks as if Orange County is investigating, that should be an improvement.

    I am watching this very closely quill, thank you for posting.

    This area, iirc, is featured on the flyover of Chris’s last 24 hours.

    This is also quite close to where Chris’s truck was “staged”, why wouldn’t OCSO be handling Chris’s case then?

  23. Chris' mom says:

    First of all I would like to wish each and every one a new year filled with moments that you will cherish, progress in your journey, love, happiness and peace. Thanks, as always, to Blink’s continued efforts to solve Chris’ case and to those of you that support her and those close to this case by your posts and prayers.

    This newest incident in Apopka brings to mind something that I learned from a pastor’s wife decades ago. She said that anytime she hears a siren that she prays for all those involved because they are dealing with an emergency in their lives.

    Of course we have no clue yet what is going on with this latest incident but someone has lost their life and that will have an impact on everyone around them. Prayers for the family, friends, and OCSO as they investigate. –Rachael

  24. Christy says:

    when Fredick upthread brought the link about the burnt remains found in orange county fl in Dec., I searched for more info and realized I remembered reading one article that said there was a vehicle found close to the burnt remains in the heavy wooded area!
    On my I pod touch and I still haven’t figured out how to attach a link but I know how to copy I guess :( oh well here is where I read the additional info:

    unfortunately this sounds all to familiar!

    I had a similar concern these 2 were related, following up-

  25. Christy says:

    Yea!! The link actually worked! I guess i did know how!

  26. luckyLou says:

    The latest re: burning car:,0,2968534.story

    I think the hunters that found a black male last week as well.

  27. Christy says:

    I wonder if the burnt body found in Dec was also someone who might have used drugs? Unfortunately there’s common denominaters in all these cases: wooded areas, abandoned vehicles and drug usage! LE needs to start looking at some KNOWN drug dealers!

  28. StatingTheObvious says:

    This is Central FL lady, all we do is wooded areas, abandoned vehicles and drug usage… These arent clues, its business as usual around here.

  29. Christy says:

    Are you talking to me? My name is not lady! I feel sorry that you are so accepting of murder.

    Well we know it wasn’t Jimmy, his behind is locked safely behind bars. If he knows anything about these too bodies, maybe he’ll turn on his old “buddies”.

    Seems like an established pack behavior to me, Manson style that is. Head guy sends em out to “deal” with him then takes out the girl so she can’t talk either.I hafta know with Misty’s sentance is this Seminole Fla. that all these drug charges are so minor?

  32. Angie says:

    Hi Blink and all.. just checking in to see if there is anything new going on? It’s been a little quiet in this thread. I hope everyone is enjoying their begining of the new year so far.

    Hi Angie, in fact, although nothing I can write on yet, there are some developments going on behind the scenes.

    It is my sincere hope that I will be able to report some progress soon. Until then, thank you for supporting your friend Chris and his family.

    Again, everyone I have interviewed in this case that knew/knows you, felt you were a very good friend to Chris and he loved you.

  33. Angie says:

    Blink Thank you for that. I feel tha

  34. Angie says:

    Doh!!! I dont know how that happened :0) But I was trying to say thank you and also that there were many times that Chris was a good friend to me as well. I am looking forward to hearing more about these new developments. Thank you blink for your time and perserverance. You are a God send!!

    Latest on Hataway’s Attempted Murder Case:,0,7379168.story

    Next hearing February 16th.

  36. ex gf says:

    T.E.O.- Thanks for the latest article. I had a feeling they wouldn’t be allowed to mention Tracy. With you and Tracy’s mom in the courtroom, they won’t have to say anything. I’m sure people will know.

    The article mentions him being suspected of stealing from partygoers…I wonder why no one pressed charges.

    After reading so many horrible things about Jimmy I can’t help but feel it’s like reading about someone I never knew, let alone dated.

    God Bless your family and all the supporters out there!

    Thanks for the updates ex gf and t.e.o.!

  38. ex gf says:

    Orlando Sentinel reports that Nancy Grace will have a new show at 9:00 on HLN called “America’s Missing”. They aired one on 1/19/11 about Jennifer Kesse and will air one on Tracy Ocasio on 2/24/11. Each of the 50 missing people will get their own hour long show. Hopefully this will bring new leads!!

  39. Angie says:

    Blink can I ask u a ??? and not have it posted?

    You may, although if it is case sensitive I will not be able to answer it.

  40. Angie says:

    You can post that friend privately and I will check it out, does not surprise me.

  41. Chris' mom says:

    Today, February 11, 2011 a sad day. Not only because it’s the 2nd anniversary of Chris’ murder but because those that could do something about it simply don’t care.

    Obviously the person(s) that killed him don’t care – they undoubtedly feel justified in their actions, plus they don’t want to be prosecuted. Those that have knowledge of what happened don’t care – they are living in fear and silence. Unfortunately, I don’t believe the APD has cared since Day 1 either which has been advantageous for the other non-caring individuals.

    However, I and those close to Chris do care and I know that Blink cares as do many of you that post/visit this site. Thank you!

    God also cares about every aspect of this case and all those involved, whether He chooses to allow it to be solved or not is up to him but I feel that it is my responsibility to see that it is investigated thoroughly. Blink has done an amazing job, now it is up to others to step up to the plate.

    Please know that things are being done behind the scenes to move this case forward and we continue to need your prayer support. –Rachael

    You know I walk beside you in this journey, wherever it leads.

  42. Chris' gf says:

    As Rachael said, today is a sad day for many reasons. As the time of this second anniversary drew near I found my thoughts going to Chris more often and remembering moments from our time together.

    Today as I drove I thought of how, as this day progresses, I unconsciously earmark what was happening on this day two years ago. That the moment has already passed that I saw Chris for the last time in my life. That the moment is coming that I will have spoken to him that last time. And that this person, who I loved regardless of their faults, disappeared out of my life like smoke, never to be seen again. And the hole he left has yet to be filled…

    Two years have passed and Chris’ case remains unsolved. Though this case has not been given the attention that it should have received we are still pushing for its resolution. I hope that through our efforts, and the unfaltering efforts of Blink and her team, we will see Chris’ killer(s) brought to justice and finally be able to lay him to rest.

  43. ex gf says:

    To Chris’ Mom and girlfriend. I cannot imagine the pain that this anniversary has brought back to your minds (even though it never left). Take today to remember the happy moments and renew your faith that God will show us the answers in His own time. I pray it is soon. I never met Chris but from what I’ve read he was an amazing man.

  44. t.e.o. says:

    To Chris’ Mom & Gf

    God willing we will get the answers we seek and bring our loved ones home…good or bad. One way or another we will be reunited during this life or the next…keep your hopes up!

  45. t.e.o. says:

    Nancy Grace will be featuring Tracy Ocasio’s case Thursday February 24th at 9:00 PM on America’s Missing on HLN…hoping & praying one of these days someone comes forward.

  46. t.e.o. says:

    Great to see the Orlando Sentinel feature a story on Chris!

  47. Chris' mom says:

    Jimmy Hattaway/Rachel Clark case: Liz Ocasio and I just got back from the Docket Sounding for Jimmy Hataway. He is scheduled for a pre-trial conference 2/24/11 and a trial date was set for 2/28/11.

  48. t.e.o. says:

    Rachael, Hoping and praying today’s the start of the answers and closure for you!
