JFC the article just drops some bombs and walks away.

it's like they created a new kind of clickbait, but did it wrong (unless it was a ploy to get me to scroll down to see if any more info was hidden with all the ads... then, good job!!)

Sounds like he had a mental break, split with his immediate family (and left his mother?) and hid somewhere for awhile.

Operation Northwoods never actually happened, which is an inconvenient fact to the people that cite it all the time.


Always_0421 t1_itpw5qc wrote

Because one man didn't sign off on was still approved by federal agencies (chief of staff, director of CIA) with intent to completion upon executive approval... the executive that refused to sign it was later assasinated the following year.

It's crazy people act like it's a preposterous idea the government could or something like that when they have already ADMITTED to the Muskogee airman experiments, project MK Ultra, operation Bongo II, the gulf Tonkin incident, and the Snowden revelations....and then planned operation northwoods.


SableyeFan t1_itl4u73 wrote

I had this exact thing happen to me. Family friend shows up unexpectedly with kids in tow, drops some doomsday crap on me and hopes I could help by validating her thoughts. Immediately backpedles when I suggest we get some food and at least come up with a plan so she wasn't literally driving all over the state aimlessly with zero money, cellphone battery, and gas.

I stepped in immediately between her and the kids and she left without them. I contacted everyone who should be in the loop with her license plate number and set to work making sure the kids were comfortable and somewhat happy after watching their mother literally abandon them.

It worked out, but this stuff wasn't easy to deal with regardless.


LeftyLu07 t1_itl5nyj wrote

That would be so scary because I would be worried someone in the midst of break like that could armed and not realize what they're doing.


candysipper t1_itlbtm7 wrote

People like that are usually the victim of crime, not the perpetrator. They’re very vulnerable, not very organized and people take advantage of their fragile state. Of course it’s not impossible that someone could become suicidal/homicidal and paranoia and desperation are risk factors, but the reality is that they usually don’t become dangerous to others.

Also he apparently made claims about the FBI and CIA being after him.

I find it weird though that the wife and kids went along with it. The kids were old enough to know better, between the 3 of them I'd think one of them would have done something.

Same thing happened to that family in Australia. Pretty sure theirs was a shared psychosis, which would make sense here too.

I’m sorry to hear your brother was having a hard time, I hope he’s doing better now, but I would like to gently ask how he feels about the whole thing now with some distance and perspective? It’s not often we get to hear the other side of these stories.


neo_sporin t1_itm6yia wrote

No idea. Havnt spoken to him in over 10 years aside from ‘forced’ FaceTimes at holidays. I know it took about 15 years from that date before he was on stable meds, there were several ‘incidents’ the years following

Since then I have found out our family has a fairly lengthy history of mental illness so it all started to make a bit more sense to me

Good reporting, IMHO. No need to editorialize. We can all draw pretty reasonable conclusions about this.


AE1360 t1_itlo0wg wrote

Don't know but this is just a follow up. The original when they went missing had the same details. There isn't anything more on it with the call.


Berlin_Blues t1_itlqs2n wrote

Where were they found? Why did they disappear? These questions should have been touched on.


MiguelJones t1_itnfmgv wrote

They disappeared because the father thought people were coming after him for knowledge that he had in regards to 9/11. Sounds like the guy had a psychotic break and wanted to bug out, taking his family with him.


wellthatkindofsucks t1_itnx4na wrote

Ok but are the children ok? Are they safe after the father clearly had a mental breakdown? And are the adults going to be charged with abandoning the elderly mother, who was found roaming the streets alone and confused and who had to be rehoused with other family members?


MiguelJones t1_ito4jvw wrote

They were just found it sounds like so, maybe let the investigation play out. Chomping at the bit for answers in these comments won't do much good. You could reach out to the police department via the linked Facebook posts in the article.

Oh the conspiracy theorists are going to love this


FanngzYT t1_itl8od1 wrote

in reality it is just a man suffering from delusions


fourfourzero t1_itld7p0 wrote

that's what "conspiracy theorist" means


CrashRiot t1_itlfl17 wrote

Honestly it’s a lot more complex than that. It’s true that most conspiracy theorists are somewhat delusional or misinformed, but some do actually turn out to be true.

For example, during prohibition if someone stood up and said, “I got sick from drinking alcohol. The government is poisoning me!”, most of us would assume they were a nuts conspiracy theorist.

We would be wrong. The government purposefully increased methanol without notice in industrial alcohols to get people to stop drinking. It killed up to 10000 people.

If in the 50s and 60s someone were to say, “the CIA has been performing mind experiments on me!”, again, we’d often consider them crazy conspiracy theorists.

We would be wrong. This became known as MKULTRA, perhaps the most infamous “conspiracy theory” in US history.

Point is, it’s not always delusional. Most of the time? Almost certainly. But definitely there are multiple “true” conspiracies.


hiS_oWn t1_itlr0u7 wrote

Except the government did so openly and with warning labels on all alcohol poisoned in such a manner. This is as much a conspiracy theory as the onion article "man discovers link between government and NASA".


DeepSpaceNebulae t1_itlodex wrote

To be clear, they publicly mandated industrial alcohols, i.e. those not for human consumption, have additives . While not exactly good, it’s not like they were poisoning drinking alcohol or did it secretly as it was new regulation for public companies that were making those industrial alcohols

The number of deaths is also impossible to calculate as even un-modified industrial alcohol can cause deaths when improperly distilled by bootleggers


dustygultch t1_itlkur3 wrote

What was your intent with posting this? Are you agreeing or disagreeing with who you responded to. The man most definitely is delusional


AtsignAmpersat t1_itlqmsq wrote

They’re just going after a blanket statement because of the very rare occurrences of conspiracy theorist being right? I don’t know who the conspiracy theorist even was in their examples. It’s also entirely possible to be a delusional conspiracy theorist and also right occasionally.

This is Reddit. When you say an absolute, someone will chime in with a argument with “well actually”.


Legitimate-Cow-6859 t1_itm21sa wrote

That’s what they want you to think

Real shit, the US government has done so much fucked up shit (mk-ultra, Tuskegee syphilis experiment, dropping bio weapons on San Francisco, Iran-contra and importing cocaine while ramping up the war on drugs, various forms of corruption in our electoral system, etc) that there’s a very tangible benefit to people dismissing conspiracy theorists as crazy kooks.


Then_Campaign7264 t1_itkv1yo wrote

I hope her mother is ok along with their sons. Glad other family members are stepping in.

Otherwise so many questions and no answers. Makes me wonder how often law enforcement receives calls like this?


MayorCharlesCoulon t1_itl30zk wrote

Yeah leaving mother behind at home is a twist. Usually people just dump their disabled elderly parent at the ER and take off. If she’s disabled and/or demented, even low level dehydration can be a huge danger. He could be looking at elder abuse charges.

I work in mental health and this is definitely delusional behavior either from bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. Unless he turns up dead under mysterious circumstances, I'm pretty sure that's underlying truth.

breadexpert69 t1_itl91ub wrote

The problem with conspiracy theorists is they often believe they are way more important than what they are and they start believing they are the main character in this world.


candysipper t1_itldr2z wrote

If that’s what this is, it’s not just “self importance”, this would be a major psychotic break. I don’t know if he’s psychotic or not (both his and the wife’s family have said no mental health issues), but if he is, he’s not trying to make himself the center of the world, he’s afraid people are after him and his family to kill or harm them. That’s not a fun feeling. In fact, I’d wager to say it’s probably extremely distressing. I’m not sure what the truth of this situation is, but I can say that it’s extremely rare for a man of his age, with no history of mental illness and has lived a normal, successful life including a good job and relationships with family, would have a psychotic break, or just now start showing the symptoms of a major mental disorder like schizophrenia.


OrphanSince12yrsOld t1_itokbrp wrote

I’ve been in the mental health field for decades. I have met a married couple that both had their Masters degrees, good jobs, and a nice family. They had no prior history of MH symptoms, they both ended up with late onset schizophrenia. It’s rare but happens


candysipper t1_itpzz2d wrote

Sure, it can happen but if you work in the field then you know how rare it is for it to happen to one person, much less two at the same time. I understand you’ve seen it anecdotally, but the odds are against that being the case with this couple. But no, not impossible. There was a family in Australia that had a shared psychosis and did something similar by just taking off. I’m very genuinely curious what the story is here. Notice how even the update articles have zero information?

A sergeant with the local police department that he knows personally. He requested him to come to his home for protection while he reported his 9/11 findings to authorities.


rspewth t1_itmbyji wrote

Reminds me of the Jamison family disappearance.

The husband said that ghosts or demons were walking across the roof, the wife spray painted some kind of warding hex across a shipping container parked in their yard and they wanted to buy some very rough land to build a house on. Their truck was found abandoned with $32,000 and the family dog inside( the dog, though somewhat the worse for wear, survived.) Their bodies were discovered better than four years later halfway up a hill 3 miles from where the truck was found. The causes of death could not be determined.


kingfrito_5005 t1_itm03gs wrote

Why does this article not address the issue that is listed in the title? It doesn't say anything about them being found. Where were they? Were they injured? What was the cause of the disappearance? This article sucks.


TwistedCherry766 t1_itn1xmi wrote

They were found in Wisconsin and in hiding because the dad claims to have ‘insider knowledge of Sept 11’

He’s a lunatic


ItIsYourPersonality t1_itnb2g5 wrote

They never mention what his claim is. Maybe his claim isn’t that crazy at all, but the consequences to a specific individual by it being revealed are big enough to try to keep it secret. Why can’t the reader be allowed to determine for themselves what is a crazy claim and what is not. If they are going to publish this story, they should have the due diligence to publish the entire story.

Kanye is allowed to spew anti-semetic shit left and right and rile up social politics, so don’t tell me his crazy conspiracy is too dangerous for us to hear.

Not saying he isn’t crazy. But I don’t like taking the news’ word for it without the proper details.

"The Cirigliano family still believes people are "after them," but their situation does not meet the criteria for protective custody, the Fremont Police Department said in a press release. "
