I’d like to pose a serious question to Vito. Did you write Confessions of the Oak Beach Drifter? If so, why would you basically implicate yourself as a potential suspect?
If you did write it, I apologize for my negative comments about the book. I still stand by my opinion that the content was disturbing. Kudos to you if you’ve changed your ways.
If you did write it, do you have any idea why ps149 would try to take credit for writing it? Any idea why ps149 would post a picture of “alphamale” saying he was the “drifter” (therefore claiming you, the author, is that man)? Do you know ps149? If not, do you have an idea who ps149 may be?
I ask this because it’s seemed to me that whoever tipped the police off to the “drifter” has been setting him up to be his fall guy. Do I think this “drifter” killed SG or is LISK? No. As far as anyone knows, he wasn’t even there when SG was. So why write in that you were?
Precious Dust and fieldnotes on WS both claim to know the true identity of the “drifter”. I believe BOTH those aliases belong to ps149. Did you ever have a phone conversation with either of those aliases or email contact? If so, I think he not only has it out for me, but does for you. He’s not trying to pin a murder on me, though.
After Vito’s answers to my questions (thank you for your honesty, Vito!), I now understand the answer to my questions about why ps149 would try to take credit for this book. Ps149 was aware of the fact that I seriously believed it was CPH posting on WS using ps149. I had sent private messages to several members, including admin, who then requested I send an email to WSADMIN@aol.com. In hindsight, I believe this was an email set up by ps149 to gain access to members’ personal email addresses who didn’t have them set up on WS to receive personal emails. That was the initial access to my real name.
He had a strong idea that I would believe that CPH wrote the book if ps149 defended the comments I made… because I believed ps149 was CPH. He turned the table on ME being the author since I’m from Central Florida, what was written on my public WS profile. To validate the claim that the “drifter” was the author, Precious Dust and fieldnotes stepped in. I was relentless in my belief that CPH was the author based on ps149 coming to the defence of the book.
More questions for Vito: did you ever speak to a NY Post or Times reporter who got your real name?
