As I mentioned earlier this week, tonight the Nancy Grace program takes a look back at the mystery of the George Smith case.
Mr. Smith "disappeared" from the Brilliance of the Seas during his honeymoon cruise with his newlywed wife, Jennifer Hagel, in July 2005.
There has been some mystery and intrigue over the years. But there have been developments this year which point the finger squarely at some of the men last seen with Mr. Smith as being involved in his disappearance.
Seven years ago, Nancy Grace interviewed me on her show about the case (we represented George’s widow, Jennifer). Ms. Grace spent more time attacking Jennifer, than focusing on those responsible for George’s death and the cruise line which tried to cover it up.
The photo to the right is of George and Jennifer at the beginning of their honeymoon cruise. (We distributed the photo at the Congressional hearing into Mr. Smith’s death in 2005).
This was a couple deeply in love, with a life together ahead of them.
Let’s hope that tonight’s program is really an update on who was involved in George’s death over seven years ago, and not a platform to attack his wife, Jennifer.
This is a case where there needs to be an arrest of those who were involved in George’s death and those who covered it up.
