Costa Rican Sources Emerging: I have been contacted by a source from Costa Rica who has lived there for years. When they were living in Costa Rica, during 2006 and 2007, William Dathan Holbert and Laura Michelle Reese were going by the names of "Bill and Michelle." Some people knew Holbert as "Big Bill" or "Body Builder Bill." My source - who has asked to not be identified - met "Bill and Michelle" at the Arrecife restaurant in the Punta Uva area - South of Puerto Viejo and Playa Cocles. My source said "I instantly didn't like him and knew he was dangerous." Holbert supposedly said he was a writer and he spoke about money he supposedly had in the Cayman Islands. Holbert had a draft of a book he was writing which featured as its central character described as a "big, charming, intimidating guy" obviously based on Holbert himself.
Spouting Nazi Racist Crap in Costa Rica: According to this source, Holbert immediately turned everyone off at the bar because "he was always talking Nazi crap and how 'right' Hitler was." As for the woman at his side, Laura Michelle Reese ("Michelle" in Costa Rica) she would apparently "try to get Bill to bash anyone who disagreed with her." During their last few months in Costa Rica, Holbert and Reese spoke frequently of their plans to move to Bocas del Toro in Panama.
La Terrazza" Restuarant: A couple from Texas known as Stacie and Allen Duckworth were the owners of this bar. They purchased the bar for $40,000 dollars when it "wasn't much." They fixed it up, put some money into it, and started to run it as their primary business. Before moving to the area of Puerto Viejo, Holbert and Reese had been living in San Jose, where Holbert's primary gig was quickly buying used cars and selling them for a profit. They later moved to this area of Costa Rica and befriended Stacie and Allen Duckworth. Before too long Holbert and Reese were at the bar all the time, working behind the bar, fixing things up, "helping out" and acting as if they were the owners (sound familiar?) So the story goes, Holbert supposedly had $60,000 saved up, and the Duckworth's were going to sell their bar and all four of them were going to move to Bocas del Toro together. However, apparently Holbert and Reese showed up by themselves. What ever happened to Stacie and Allen Duckworth from Texas? That's an open question at this point.
Where Are They? If you know Stacie and Allen Duckworth of Texas - who were living in the area of Puerto Viejo in Costa Rica in 2007 - and if you know where they are, please have them contact me immediately. Call US phone number (845) 514-9893, my cell phone in Panama 24/7 country code (507) 6614-0451 or send an email to email@example.com. If these people are fine then I want to know about that ASAP. I still want to talk to them, about their relationship with Holbert and Reese. However, if these people are missing then that's even more important. They could very well have ended up as yet more victims of these serial killers. The name of the bar might be wrong, because it has since changed ownership and names several times, but it was located at "Playa Cocles right next to the Rio Negro and Margarita Road."
Here We Go Again: Ready for round 2? As I have suspected from the very start, it now looks like this case is going to take a whole new, even more sinister turn. I'll be providing more information as it becomes available. Right now, the focus should be on finding Stacie and Allen Duckworth from Texas.
