7-years, 3-months into Samantha’s abduction

Wednesday, February 10, 2016: Good morning Sam. Another early wake up. This time 4:08 AM. I guess compared to yesterday, some would call the extra 90-minutes ‘sleeping in‘. Suffice it to say, I had a wonderful dream about us. I’m not sure the circumstances that allowed us to be together in the dream however the setting was along the coast between San Diego and San Clemente. In real life my father was a US Marine and has access to the US Marine Base Camp Pendleton, which is the stretch of coast I spoke of from the dream. If you ask any current duty or former US Marine they would tell you “once a Marine always a Marine“. It’s a brotherhood and sisterhood I can relate too with surfing and Jiu Jitsu.

So, back to the dream. You were a few years older than you are today. 12-13 years old. You convinced me to go camping with some friends at Camp Pendleton, which is only 15-minutes up the freeway from my house. You mentioned how you loved to watch Bear Grylls build his jungle huts from bamboo and palm tree leaves on TV and wanted to know if I could do the same because you did not care for tents much. With the help of some Special Forces friends I train Jiu Jitsu with, we built a hut that seasoned Marines would have been jealous of. With that my friends pulled out a map and wanted to go on a beach hike to San Diego. You suggested that we hike the beach the other direction because you wanted to see the beaches along the coast to my house. And after you told the group the highlights about what Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) did to you, the group let out an emphatic “Ooh Rah” and off we went to hike north towards my house.

And that was pretty much the dream Sam. It was amazing just to see you in my dreams because it’s been awhile. I’ll take it. I can only hope we can figure this out so we can enjoy life together and I don’t entirely miss your youth. One thing the dream did was make sure I did not stop thinking about it all day.

Onto the latest update on the case itself. Remember when I mentioned a few months ago the DA in Irapuato told us Adriana’s attorneys were a bunch of scumbags? They were not kidding. It turns out one of the attorneys is a really special scumbag. I know who the guy is but will refrain from mentioning his name for now. Although we will be keeping eyes on him for sure. What I can tell you is that this guy has issues with the criminal courts in Irapuato for, get this, extortion and kidnapping. No joke Sam. This guy used to be a cop. So, how he became an attorney is a mystery because a guy like this would never be allowed to practice law in the United States.

Yes, I said ‘extortion and kidnapping‘.

That explains the guys with guns escorting you from court those 2 times. Not surprising that an asshole like this would be preoccupied with security. Suffice it to say, guns or no guns. All of you can hide in the Gaza Strip for all I care. We will still find you.

Miss you Beautiful. I LOVE YOU SAM!
