Tis the season to be jolly, holy, or happy according to tradition. Xmas and Hanukah are upon us.
However, the family of missing Israeli, Dana Rishpy mourn. Dana, who was last seen in Mexico disappeared on or about March 31 more than a year ago. Her story has been well documented in both the Mexican press and the internet. The ultimate tragedy is that no one has come forward with information that would conclude this case.
The main protagonist is Mathew Walshin, an American from Los Angeles California who befriended Dana while in Tulum, Mexico. Walshin, who has a history of sexual crimes remains free as a suspect. A relative, Steven Miller is also wanted for questioning in Dana's disappearance. Miller was seen in the company of Walshin and Rishpy while in Mexico. And as Nazi criminals were aided in escaping to S. America after the war, Walshin was aided by his Mexican friend, Flor Pastrana. Walshin was alerted when the authorities arrived and managed to slip through their watch. He was just hours ahead of them on a flight back to California.
So Flor Pastrana, Mathew Walshin and Steven Miller will happily welcome in another year, choosing to remain silent about the disappearance of Dana Rishpy. May the eye of God be upon them.
