By this time we’re back in Los Angeles, California..After finding the man in the background Rose and I were on our way to Groom’s mother’s house to find more clues. As we approach the house we see his mother out gardening. We walk towards and she welcomes us in her home. While we’re in her home she offers us cookies and tea. The atmosphere in the house felt dry, lonely, and dark. It’s as if there hasn’t been much going on since Groom disappeared. She was so happy and thrilled to see us and this shows from hospitality. It seems long since the last time someone visited her after Groom’s disappearance.
A few moments later after chatting about her garden we ask her a series of questions. The first thing we ask her is if she had seen groom. She replied with a sigh and a very content, “No”.
We then ask if she had any where abouts of his disappearance. She didn’t even know he disappeared. She thought he ran away from home….
She then asked us who would take him and why?!
We told her we aren’t sure ourselves and are trying to get to the bottom of it. She asked us,”Why do you care to look for him?”
Rose told her,”…..he holds the key to important information in ds106…and if we don’t find him there will no longer be a ds106.”
So she grabs Rose’s and my hand, looks us in the eye, and says,”….I need my son….d-s-1-0-6 for…… life…..and without Groom..there will be no life…”
She told us to follow her to his room. She says,” He used to play with his action figures in here….maybe here is where you can find more clues.”
I came across a deck of cards so Rose handed them to me to take a look at it. While going through them I saw that Misha’s name on them. So we asked ourselves,”Why does Groom have a deck of cards?”
I remembered that a long time ago that her other ex-boyfriend was talking about a person that called himself the Groomster. ….What the heck is up with me and all these ex boyfriends of hers?!…
We were definitely on to something…. So we planned to meet up with the private investigator again the next morning at a public place….
