    Very Sad situation but in my experience this is WAY too long to keep someone with Tony’s resources and not make a demand. It is also possible that K&R wouldn’t cover 5d because of its legal gray area, but that wouldnt delay a demand. Hopefully he is still alive and if they have failed to gag him, making his tormentors’ lives miserable.

    This article has some more details, many unverified.

    conspiracy theorists are suggesting its an exit strategy coinciding with the US legal betting boom.

    Like who? Falsely reporting a serious crime in CR is not a charge he needs.

    "Tony, who owned and managed the operation is a good friend of mine. I was his guest twice in recent years at his condo near Jaco, Costa Rica. Both times I went, Tony was extremely gracious, generous, and down to earth. Between trips, we communicated by Skype. My last communication with him was on September 8. Despite running a huge organization, he always seemed to have time to chat and liked being challenged with a good math puzzle.

    This morning, I learned that Tony was kidnapped on September 24. Based on two reports in the media, the captors demanded a ransom, which was paid. However, Tony was never released or seen from again, as far as anyone knows.".....Michael Shackleford, math wiz and actuary.

    Just forum morons throwing shit out there. As far as i know, he didnt report himself kidnapped. That charge would be put on his misses Tony. BTW, anyone know why he goes by Tony?

    The charge would also apply to him as being complicit to a hoax. I always thought he wanted to be a mob wiseguy, thus the name Tony. Kinda like a South Philly guy.
