On January 16, 1973, Anna returned home from kindergarten by school bus at about 12:20 pm. Earlier that day, some family friends came for a visit. After coming home, Anna put on a pair of jeans, a blue and white striped T-shirt, oversized black rubber boots and a red coat. At about 1:30 pm, Anna went inside and took off the red coat. At approx. 2:00 pm, Benedict heard Anna talking outside, possibly to the family cats. However, between 2:15 and 2:20 pm, Benedict no longer heard Anna making any sounds. The family dog, Saturn, was a puppy and didn't always bark at strangers, so Benedict wasn't alarmed by anything of the sort. At 2:20, Benedict and Ford went outside to search for Anna. At 2:45, after having found nothing, the San Mateo police department was called and the official search began.
One original fear was that Anna had simply wandered off and fallen into the nearby Purisima Creek and drowned. It had been raining that day and the creek was in flooding state. Benedict stated that she somehow felt that the Creek was a danger for the family. Divers searched the waters and the area was thoroughly searched for four days. No trace of Anna was found. Family friend Doug French has been active in the search for Anna and he believes that the Purisima Creek had nothing to do with the disappearance. The Half Moon Bay Review published an article on January 25 and called the search for Anna "the greatest search in coastside history". The article also implied that Anna had indeed fallen into the Creek and drowned.
Both Anna's family and Doug French have felt that Anna's birth father and his friend are strongly involved with Anna's disappearance. "Brody" is described as manipulative over Anna's father, having allegedly caused the divorce between him and Benedict. "Brody" was interested in Anna and believed her to be the reincarnation of a woman he had once lived with. He tried to make Benedict change her daughter's name to "Eifee". The word had no meaning. "Brody" simply wanted to do this so, numerologically, Anna's name would add up to his own name. A young man and an old man were seen in the vicinity the day Anna disappeared. A spokesman from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has said that Anna may well still be alive. Officially the case is considered a "probable non-family abduction". "Brody" died of cancer in December 1981 and a short time later Waters, who had signed Brody's death certificate, was also found dead.
On March 26, 2006, at approx. midnight, a passer-by found a part of a child's skull (zygoma, maxilla and teeth) on a stretch of land between San Gregorio State Beach and Pompino beach. No date was established for the skeletal remains, but the age of the individual was put at 5–7 years. No other part of the skeletal remains were located. After a very long delay, DNA evidence proved that the skeletal remains were not those of Anna, but rather belonged to an unidentified young boy. Waters has since been excluded as the identity of the Doña Ana County Jane Doe.
This is an interesting case. Although I look at many every week, most don't have viable charts or do not render information. Some I work on for months and months before something comes together. This one just jumped out at me so I did it right away. You will see this for yourself when I show you the charts.
This little girl was last known to be on the porch of her home with her dog. She just disappeared from that location with her parents still in the home, which is a rare occurrence and hard for many to imagine. But not so impossible if the abductors were people the child knew and got the child to come to them, such as parking in the street and calling the child over. The chart I ran first was for the time she was last seen.
In this chart, the first thing to stand out is the stellium in the eighth house. The eighth house is never a good place in a forensic chart. It often points to death. But here you can see the implications. The first house ruler is Mercury, the traditional ruler of children, and it is in the eighth house. The child goes, on her own, to someone, this person represented by Jupiter, the seventh house ruler, in the eighth. We know that this is a marker for a criminal, someone who runs afoul of civilized society. Notice how close Mercury and Jupiter come together in the eighth. Also note how close the node falls to these planets, indicating an advance plan or scheme. They had planned to come and get this child. I say they because there are other planets present that indicate accomplices.
The Sun, the fourth house ruler, sits closely aligned with Jupiter, which indicates that this criminal had either been in the child's home (fourth house) or lived in the near neighborhood. There is familiarity here or there would be no node. The tenth house ruler, Uranus, in the fifth is disposed of by Venus, also in the eighth. This person owns the home to which they are taking this girl and the fifth house indicates they have other children there or have taken children there in the past. hate to say this but there is a chance that the criminal who took Anna was related to the family in some manner.
This chart is close to the time that the parents claim to have lost track of the child. It may be, of course, that the people who took her actually came onto the porch and this is whom they heard her talking to. The Moon in the first house indicates that Anna went willingly, so it is assumed that this was someone she knew and trusted.
This chart has the first dark omens. Notice that Pluto has entered the fourth house while Saturn has moved into the twelfth. Pluto is square the Moon in the first. The first and seventh house rulers are still in the eighth house with the node. The tenth house ruler, Neptune, is in the sixth with Mars. They have taken Anna to a workshop of some sort with a hidden place to hide her. This may be an actual workshop where someone earns a living or it may be a workshop in the home. Mars and Pluto insinuate violence and the eighth house shows criminal activity, often sexual in nature.
Saturn, the eighth house ruler, is in the twelfth in Gemini, disposed of by the child ruler, Mercury, in the eighth. UGH.
I hate to think of children being brutalized but this chart is suggesting this strongly. She was probably raped before she was killed. I have no doubt, however, that she is either no longer alive or she is being sold for sex. The 1970s brought the advent of snuff films and the widespread popularity of porn. Hustler magazine was a leader in the pictorial of abuse. Child porn, especially with pretty little girls, was just becoming a big business. There is every possibility that Anna was groomed and then used this way. She may still be alive and not even know who she was.
This is a likely scenario when you look at this developing chart pattern. Mercury is in the seventh, showing the child to be in possession of other people and with the Moon in the twelfth, she is hidden away or even drugged and unconscious. Notice Saturn in the twelfth, which is often a marker for burial, but it is retrograde, showing, that if she will die, which she probably will, it won't be for awhile. The violence in this chart scares me. She is put through it but not killed, which is a marker for sex slavery. Notice the tenth house ruler, Neptune, in the sixth. They may well make a living with pictures or movies, most likely pornographic.
Mercury ruling the fourth indicates more than one location or, at least, a location with several "extra" areas such as a home with a basement, a shed or an attic, which are used separately. Moon in Cancer in the twelfth indicates that Anna was kept in a home with a family appearance so that the neighbors would think the kids belonged there. Also, Mercury ruling the fourth indicates the presence of more than one child. I now have concern for other missing kids from the same area during the same time period. This could be another captive situation with numbers of children being abducted and abused. As I said when reading the first chart, these are people the child knew, was talking to and left with willingly. I do not see the child being forced as the ruler in the first always shows the direction of the victim. I do not see a death pattern in these charts and not in the charts that I drew up for later that day. I believe she was kept alive for awhile, at least.
These charts just don't change which leads me to believe that she was brought into a situation for a purpose and was kept alive for that purpose. She may still be alive but I cannot say where because she may well have been moved from this first location at any time after the abduction.
For consideration, the person who took her knew her. He is described as a fat older man with weathered features. Rugged and hard scrabble, always in need of money. This man is low on morals and has a cold, inconsiderate nature. Jupiter near the Sun indicates he is also a father and has children, probably boys. He has a criminal history and has spent time in jail. He is very hard to talk to. He is connected, in some manner, to the family and if they consider this description, they should know who this is.
Forensic Astrology is the art of using charts to determine the nature of events as they occurred in unsolved crimes and missing persons cases. The method I use is uniquely mine as I have over 35 years experience in Astrology, both Forensic and in general.
The purpose of this blog and the post you are reading is to showcase Forensic Astrology. This is an experiment run by an Astrologer who is trying to develop a system that can be used in solving cold cases and other mysteries. This is the reading of an Astrology chart and in no way represents the personal beliefs of the Astrologer and there is no personal connection to anyone either involved with the case or the victim or the victim's family. This is not intended to be the final word on the outcome of the case and is not be considered as fact as would be required in a court of law. This blog is intended to be a tool to both study and further the forensic analysis of Astrology charts and nothing more.
