    Hes probably related to Harold Bishop.

    Strange that he can't recall the night but has seemingly been living a life somewhere else for the past 5 years. Really would be interesting to find out exactly whats happened.

    This is a priceless story :biggrin:

    Apparently, the person who found the picture of him and his wife in Panama last year, just stuck their names and "Panama" in Google because she thought the story suspicious :biggrin:

    Another view. I wonder if it may have been a case of him running off & everyone initially thinking he was dead.

    A while passes & then he re-appears, putting the whole family into a quandary. His wife may have been caught up in something out of love for her 'dead' husband.

    Perhaps it could be a case where the good folks got drawn into something somewhat unsavoury & then managed it incorrectly?

    He claimed he had amnesia when he turned himself in so perhaps he found out about the police investigation and thought he could bluff his way out.
