The Sad Case Of Amy Bradley

By
November 17, 2005

And Dr. Phil, who apparently had no problems ripping off a blogger today as regards some images and the Amy Bradley story. It’s about media, folks – and this move by him sucks – just like his show. Not to mention that I doubt he told the full story.

I didn’t know Richard at Hyscience had the information at the link above. And it does appear to be a world worn Amy Bradley on the page. I certainly didn’t know of it. But I did have occasion to look at the Amy Bradley case very early on in the Natalee Holloway investigation. And I did mention this somewhere once months ago.

I discussed the Amy Bradley story with one member of the MSM. They told me that the story had never gotten any real traction as it appeared Amy Bradley ran away of her own free will and at some point later fell into a life of, let us say, ill repute. I was also told that she had been found and contacted more than once, each time preferring to not be reunited with her family. That result was said to have undermined a lawsuit by the family against the cruise line. I’ve never been able to corroborate that information.

As an aside, despite the rest of a noble article by Cliff Van Sandt – think on this line he recently wrote: Did Dr. Phil stretch his information a little far when he suggested Natalee Holloway may still be alive? Possibly so … It’s full of wonderful sentiment. Unfortunately, when I am reading news – I just want the facts. So, go and see for yourself. Do you think this is Amy Bradley?

Too bad that schmuck Dr. Phil couldn’t have credited the blogger that developed the story.

    unbelievable! I am so sick of this idiot and beth twitty – putting people at risk ignoring the wishes of another family just for ratings – beth is a sicko -I don’t have one bit of sympathy for this woman whatsoever

    • Sandy says:

      Beth is a mother who lost a child. She goes out of her way to help others in her situation, in the hope that some will come home. I think those are terrible things to say about a woman who has to forever live with the agony of losing a child. I’d be willing to bet,”truthbetold”, that you have no children?

  2. Isanah says:

    It seems that those porn pictures could be Amy. A professional should be able to try and confirm this through measured markings of facila bones and such.

  3. cindi in pa says:

    Not only have they put Natalee’s life at stake, they have now done the same for Amy, even if this is the least bit likely to have happened.
    I for one doubt very much Amy would have wondered off on her own free will.
    Beth needs some serious help, as does DR. Phil.

    What in the name of God are you talking about? This has NOTHING whatsoever to do with BHT at all. Some of you guys are so bound and determined to spin anything and everything against her that you practically make up reasons to criticize her. Pathetic.

  7. rosdower says:

    By the way, I am no fan of Phil, but how exactly did he rip this blogger off? The blogger didn’t find the photo, he only gave it to the girl’s family after being tipped off about it. So it isn’t like he can take credit for the photo. More importantly though, Hyscience withheld the photos, so I don’t see how anyone can claim they ripped off a blogger who never published the information.

  8. doesanyonecareaboutnatalee says:

    The pics do look like Amy.

  9. @ ~iwabwu~ @ says:

    I do think they look like a very sad Amy. I wonder where she is?

  10. Hobo says:

    Whatever your opinion or perspective, stuff like this will fill backfill the readership rolls when others have dropped out. Case in point is that material on behalf of Natalees disappearance is beginning to diminish. It’s like reaching out and grasping for something, anything to keep the case/s alive. Some Hollywood and music stars have to do outrageous things to get attention.
    God bless you Natalee

  11. doesanyonecareaboutnatalee says:

    Scarobough tonight. Few hours after Dr Quack
    B: When I first received the call, if I played it 40 times, I played it 80. We sent it to Quantico; Dr. Phil had someone analyze…have come to conclusion it may have NOT been Natalee…it was crafted so that I did think I heard an utterance from Natalee.
    J: Dangerous: if you go down that path, may let Aruban officials off the hook..
    B: We feel like we are showing that each lead, we are being open about…we are ruling out the possibility that Natalee could be alive, it brings us full circle back to these three suspects, not only raped Natalee but may have murdered her.
    Well they just admited the whole Dr Phil was a hoax. how can these people live with them selves?
    This is just a disgrace what is going on here. What lies. What a JOKE has been made out of Natalee Holloways investigation.
    Its not about Natalee at all. Ratings, ratings, ratings. These shows be boycotted.

  12. Justice for Natalee says:

    Yes, looks like Amy. Top pics–2 and 4 especially look the same. Pic 1–sad look in eyes.

    You do realize these shows are taped well in advance don’t you?

  14. doesanyonecareaboutnatalee says:

    I do realize it is taped in advance.
    Beth also knows the dam phone call isnt Natalee.
    Joe: Beth, why did you think it important to wait awhile before telling America about call?
    Beth: We have tried to be discreet, go by proper chain of command…didn’t want to jeopardize anything, wanted to have it thoroughly evaluated…
    So she kept silent until it was evaluated so why do the Dr Quack show?

    The phone call was discussed by Dave several times before the Phil show, and she said they wanted it to be discreet, not silent. It isn’t like she was letting the cat out of the bag with the DR. Phil show. And how do you know that they didn’t know the phone call PROBABLY wasn’t Natalee until after the filming, which was over a week ago I believe.

  16. doesanyonecareaboutnatalee says:

    They are doing nothing but playing mind games with everyone out here that really gives a shit and wants Natalee found. Its disgusting.
    I am sick of the head trips and that is all it is. Every show they go on its a different story.
    Last night or the night before Beth said FBI had the original Skeeters tape. Tonight Skeeters said he gave it to FBI this morning. The whole bunch are nothing but pathetic liars and anyone that has a cable rationg box should quit supporting this bs and let their ratings drop.

    Donated money, pray dilegently, spent hours surfing for a clue to pass on to the family, cried tears for BT and spent 6 months of my life worrying about Natalee and praying for her safe return. What have you done?

  21. Skye says:

    Dr Phil did not take the pic from that blog. That pic was emailed to Amy’s family and they gave Dr Phil permission to post the picture. That information is posted on that blog as well.

    I did read the post there, and even they weren’t claiming Phil ripped them off. If you read it then you will notice they said they WITHHELD the information. So there is no way the Dr. Phil show could have known that this blog (who didn’t even find the pictures) knew about this. More than likely the Dr. Phil show received the photo from the girl’s family who probably didn’t even bother to mention the blog. The blogger didn’t find this photo and he never even reported knowing of them until just now, so how could Dr. Phil have ripped him off? The blogger himself doesn’t even claim that he was ripped off by Dr. Phil.

    Hyscience withheld the photos because the FAMILY asked them to.

  25. RstJ says:

    The Bradleys are fraudulent idiots whose first move on discovering that Amy was “missing” was to abandon that cruise ship and hide in a casino hotel on Curacao. When that ship docked, Amy wasn’t on it. She either jumped or was pushed well before 6am. If you really want to know what happened, ask her brother, probably the last person to see her alive. They were in some limbo contest at the disco that night. He came back, then (supposedly) five mins later she did. But nobody ever found her lighter, cigarettes, clothing (she supposedly changed) or shoes (she supposedly walked out barefoot). Since that time, their stories have grown ever wilder to the point where they’ll be claiming Voodoo Priests carried her off to be a virgin sacrifice someplace next.
    Some newspaper ran a very long article on this not long ago. Read through it, and you’ll see the Bradleys constantly fumble questions about her clothes, what she did in the cabin, and just what proof they had she was ever out on that balcony.
    This case has nothing to do w/Natalee Holloway unless its a comparison of just how crazy some victim’s parents become.

    I’m glad they did, but the point is that since they witheld the photos there was practically no way for Dr. Phil to have known the blog had them. How could he have ripped them off when they a) didn’t find the photos, and b) never reported even receiving the photos?

  27. reality says:

    amy ran away, who knows why!
    nat. planned her escape from the daughter of hitlers sister, who can blame her ?
    what a difference between the two mothers !
    the reporters story this is the man pretending to help beth find her daughter, jossy, what a pair of clowns !!reporter following nat. on land and jossy diving looking for a body !!
    now the story is over, we all know these girls working in prostitution, we only dont know where or why !!maybe its their choice, mayby not !

  28. reality says:

    if i am so sure that the voice on the voicemail is of nat. cause i am the expert, so why dont let the world listen to this tape.!
    pure bullshit !!
    pure show, nothing else !

  29. teresa says:

    Sorry, I do not think those pics look like Amy Bradley.

  30. Amy Bradley Spotted?

    Richard at Hyscience has new information about Amy Bradley:
    Hyscience [ warning: sexually explicit images ] —On September 21, 2005 Hyscience received information from a reader, Allan K, about images he had found that looked like Amy Bradley.

  31. observer says:

    I think that is a uncanny resemblance to Amy Bradly.Eyes,Ears,Cheeks and mouth….

  32. katya says:

    It really bothers me that Phil McGraw does a program on sexual slavery and focuses on two very unlikely victims. The number of white, middle class Americans who are kidnapped for such purposes is very very low. Typical girls and women who are trafficed are poor and from poor countries. They are throw away people no one cares about. If McGraw was really interested in bringing the problem to peoples attention he would be talking about these girls and women.
    Nicholas Kristof did a very good series in the NYT last year about women in Cambodia and Thailand. He bought two women and helped return the to their villages. He did a follow up a few months later and one of the girls had returned to prostitution.

  33. tester says:

    Everybody has a double.
    I think the two look very similar. same eyebrow line, shape of nose and nostril, etc.
    Whats the timeline? She seems much older, perhaps rundown.
    Simple way to test is to pony up some cash and get that escort.

    Human trafficking is a reality that most people do not want to realize. Common sense should tell you that all of these woman and children that go missing everyday do not disappear into thin air. (Unless of course, UFO’s really do exist.)

    We know everyone lies in Aruba
    Posted by: lefty | Nov 18, 2005 7:31:15 PM
    Yep, that si soooooooo true. The only thing we do here is lie, we cover this up from the start and we will keep doing it!!! Yes!!…everybody here in Aruba knows where Natalee is but we just want to annoy Beth…aha, we just don’t have anything else to do here. We have a corrupt system and do not want to change that cuz we like it and if you don’t like that then BOYCOT us!!! And it looks like Aruba has supernatural power too…WHY do I think that Aruba has supernatural power? Well…I heard that we send America 2 hurricanes: Katrina and Rita…yes!! We did that too…Why? Well again, we were trying to get the attention off Aruba. So as you can see everything is our FAULT!!
    And boy let me tell you that EVERYBODY here is involve in this case, well, except maria;)..everybody else is involve in this case:Aruban people,Dutch people…even our Queen, our Majesty BEATRIX is also involve and our princess Maxima and Prins Alexander and Jan peter Balkende…let us just say everybody in Den Haag( the Hague) too. Hey, we even have connections with North Korea and people from Al-qaida and not to forget Hugo Chavez and the list goes on and on… and ofcourse we have connections with ALIENS.

    you guys are internet slaves.
    why put sooo much attention to this stupid case !
    we all agree this a pure show, for money !
    But we cant stop bs ing on it, we are slaves, hooked on the case !
    cant you do anything better with your time, like helping your neighbour, clean the house, cook,
    get help for your problem, Look for nat in bars in your street, watch out not to become a bar slave too !!
    EVEN BETTER GIVE YOUR KIDS ATTENTION, KISSES, EDUCATION, LOVE, HUGS ECT!

  40. So says:

    why does the blogger need credit? I along with many other including Richard and Allan provided pictures to Amy’s family. I know I didn’t do it looking for fame or reward. I talked to Amy’s mom who was happy to get past due deserved airtime for Amy’s story. By the way, Phil did give credit to the blogger who wished to remain anonymous.

  41. Lynn says:

    I can not believe the things some of you people have written. I am proud of everyone trying to work finding these girls. How can you say that they aren’t working in slavery? If we knew where these girls were at they would be with there familys or buried. Case would be solved! Nobody knows where they are? It is important to look at evert avenue. No compassion!
