On february 2016, the Tagruato website was updated with an employee of the month page. One of pictures showed Howard being the employee of the month of Bold Futura of said year. On his profile picture Howard is seen wearing a t-shirt that says Radioman70.
By introducing Radioman70.com it will redirect you to a page named FunAndPrettyThings.com. On the website there are several photos of Megan's hobbies, including a screenshot from the movie "Pretty in Pink", which is only one that can click on and then it asks for a password which is "Do you want to talk?"(which is a phrase from that particular scene in "Pretty in Pink".) It will take you to a chat site. The chat features messages send by Howard (using the name Radioman 70) to his daughter Megan (reffered as Radiogirl). The messages shows an attempt from Howard trying to warn his daughter about an upcoming attack, with some messages containing links to real world websites and news.
I HOPE THAT YOU CAN SEE THIS NOW. IVE BEEN TRYING TO EMAIL YOU AND CALL YOU, BUT YOU HAVEN’T ANSWERED. IT’S OK, I FIGURED OUT WHY – YOUR MOTHER IS BLOCKING MY EMAIL, AND SHE MADE YOU CHANGE YOUR NUMBER. I FORGIVE YOU, IT’S NOT YORU FAULT.
I’M SORRY ABOUT HAVING TO DECEIVE YOU WITH THIS SITE, BUT I NEEDED TO FIND A WAY AROUND YOUR MOTHER’S INTERFERENCE, AND WERE RUNNING OUT OF TIME. NOW WE CAN TALK IN CONFIDENCE WITHOUT HER FINDING OUT. IT’LL BE OUR LITTLE SECRET.
I NEVER WANTED YOU TO HAVE TO LEARN ABOUT SOME OF THE THINGS THAT I KNOW BUT IT’S A FATHER’S JOB TO PROTECT HIS DAUGHTER, AND I NEED TO PROTECT YOU NOW. YOUR MOTHER NEVER LISTENED TO ME. THERE WERE THINGS I SAW, IN THE NAVY, THINGS THE SOVIET’S WERE INVOLVED WITH. SHE DIDN’T BELIEVE ME. BUT SHE WILL. EVERYBODY WILL.
DO YOU REMEMBER HOW EVERYBODY THOUGHT THE WHOLE WORLD WAS GOING TO END WHEN IT TURNED 2000, AND I BUILT US THAT LITTLE BOMB SHELTER OUT BACK? I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WAS THINKING – THAT TINY PLACE WOULD HAVE LASTED US ABOUT A WEEK, ESPECIALLY WITH HOW MUCH YOUR MOTHER COMPLAINED ABOUT IT, NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES I TRIED TO MAKE HER HAPPY.
SO THIS TIME, I DID IT RIGHT FROM THE START. IT’S HUGE, SO MUCH BIGGER THAN WHAT YOU PROBABLY REMEMBER! BUT COZY! AND I FILLED IT WITH EVERYTHING YOU LIKE! WE’LL BE SAFE DOWN THERE, HOPEFULLY FOR YEARS IF WE NEED TO. BUT I NEED YOU TO COME TO ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THEY MAY ATTACK ANY DAY NOW, SO THERE’S NO TIME TO WASTE.
I UNDERSTAND IT MAY BE HARD FOR YOU TO GET TO ME, OR THAT THERE MIGHT NOT BE ENOUGH TIME. SO I HAD ANOTHER SAFE PLACE BUILT – JUST FOR YOU. IT’S NOT QUITE AS BIG OR NICE AS THE ONE HERE, BUT IT WILL KEEP YOU SAFE. IT’S BEEN EXPENSIVE TO BUILD, ESPECIALLY SINCE I CAN’T BE THERE WATCHING OVER THE PEOPLE I HIRED AND MAKE SURE THEY DO IT RIGHT. BUT I’M PAYING THEM ENOUGH THAT THEY BETTER. BUT NO PRICE IS TOO HIGH FOR YOU. AND IT’S NOT LIKE MONEY’S GONNA BE GOOD FOR MUCH LONGER. IT’S RIGHT NEAR YOU IN CHICAGO – DO YOU REMEMEBER YOUR GRANDMA’S OLD HOUSE NEAR THE HIGHWAY? IT’S IN THE EMPTY LOT RIGHT BEHIND THERE. IT’LL BE FINISHED ANY DAY NOW. AS SOON AS IT IS, I NEED YOU TO GET INTO IT AND LOCK THE DOORS BEHIND YOU.
EVEN IF YOUR MOTHER IS WATCHING CLOSELY AND YOU CAN’T REPLY, KEEP CHECKING THIS SITE AND I WILL HELP YOU PREPARE AS MUCH AS I CAN.
I LOVE YOU, RADIOGIRL. I JUST WANT YOU TO BE SAFE.
YOU HAVEN’T REPLIED TO MY LAST MESSAGE YET. I GUESS YOUR MOM IS WATCHING YOU PRETTY CLOSELY, HUH? I SUPPOSE WE SHOULD FEEL SORRY FOR HER SINCE SHE’S ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE SO BLINDED BY THEIR PREJUDICES, SO BRAINWASHED BY WHAT EVERYONE AROUND HER IS SAYING, SHE WON’T LISTEN TO THE TRUTH. I HOPE YOU KNOW THAT’S THE REASON BEHIND THOSE THINGS SHE SAYS ABOUT ME. I KNOW YOU’RE SMART ENOUGH TO SEE THROUGH IT.
JUST COME DOWN HERE. SAY THE WORD AND I’LL PICK YOU UP OR THERE’S A TRAIN THAT LEAVES CHICAGO EVERY AFTERNOON FOR NEW ORLEANS AND I WILL GET YOU FROM THE STATION. I CAN EVEN WIRE YOU THE MONEY FOR A TICKET IF NEED IT. BUT DON’T TAKE A PLANE – IT’LL BE TOO DANGEROUS.
YOU HAVE TO COME QUICKLY. IF I’M ALIVE UNDERGROUND WHILE I KNOW THAT YOU DIDN’T MAKE IT, I WON’T BE ABLE TO LIVE WITH MYSELF.
I CAN STOCK THE SHELTER WITH ANYTHING YOU WANT, AS MUCH OF IT AS YOU LIKE. IVE ALREADY MADE SURE TO STOCK UP ON ENOUGH ICE CREAM TO LAST YOU A YEAR. MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP ALWAYS SEEMED TO MAKE YOU HAPPY. ALL I WANT IS FOR YOU TO BE SAFE AND HAPPY RADIOGIRL.
IF YOU CAN’T FIND ME WHEN YOU GET HERE, I’LL ALREADY BE DOWN THERE – THE ENTRANCE IS BACK BEHIND THE HOUSE. YOU CAN’T MISS IT.
NO ANSWER YET, MEGAN? I UNDERSTAND. YOU’VE BEEN LISTENING TO YOUR MOTHER. SHE’S BEEN POISONING YOU AGAINST ME, RIGHT? THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS YOU DON’T KNOW. SO LET ME TELL YOU SOME OF THEM AND MAYBE YOULL SEE I KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT.
A WIFE SHOULD BELIEVE HER HUSBAND, NOT UNDERCUT HIM. BUT NO MATTER HOW MUCH I TRIED TO SHARE THE TRUTH WITH HER, YOUR MOTHER NEVER TOOK ME SERIOUSLY. YOU’RE OLD ENOUGH NOW TO KNOW THE TRUTH. I WAS WORKING WITH VERY SECRET AND HIGHLY CLASSIFIED SPY SATELLITES. I HAD CLEARANCE. AND I SAW THINGS. THINGS YOU WOULDN’T BELIEVE. THINGS FEW PEOPLE WOULD BELIEVE.
THERE WAS THIS MISSION CALLED SEASAT. WE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE TRACKING SOVIET SPY SATELLITES BUT WHAT WE FOUND UP THERE WAS MUCH MUCH BIGGER. SO THEY CANCELLED THE PROJETC AND MADE UP A STORY TO EXPLAIN WHY. BUT ONE GUY I SERVED WITH, HE UNDERSTOOD THE IMPORTANCE OF WHAT WE WERE SEEING. HE WAS KIND OF A MENTOR FOR ME AND THE FEW OTHERS WHO DIDN’T WANT TO LET IT GO. SO WE BEGAN COMPILING ALL OF THIS EVIDENCE. AND ONCE WE STARTED LOOKING FOR IT, WE SAW THE SIGNS EVERYWHERE. WE ASSEMBLD SO MUCH EVIDENCE AND TRIED TO GET THE COMMANDERS TO LISTEN. BUT THEY DIDN’T WANT TO HEAR ANY OF IT. THEY SHUT US DOWN. AND THEY ACCUSED MY MENTOR OF SPYING FOR THE SOVIETS. THEY SENT HIM TO JAIL FOR 365 YEARS AND THEY MADE IT CLEAR THAT THEY WOULDNOT HESITATE TO DO THE SAME TO ME IF I DIDN’T STOP ASKIGN QUESTIONS THEY DIDN’T WANT TO ANSWER. I LEFT THE NAVY NOT TOO LONG AFTER THAT. BUT I NEVER STOPPED LOOKING.
ONE THING MY SEASAT EXPERIENCE TAUGHT ME WAS HOW TO RECOGNIZE A COVER STORY. THEY’VE USED A CLASSIC ONE HERE. VAGUE MENTIONS OF “NATIONAL SECURITY” AND “CLASSIFIED MISSION DETAILS”? I NEED YOU TO BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU THAT WHEN A NEW SATELLITE LIKE THAT GETS LAUNCHED, IT’S BECAUSE THEY KNOW SOMETHING. SOMETHING THAT THEY NEED THEIR EYES ON. SOMETHING THAT THEY DON’T WANT ANYONE ELSE TO KNOW ABOUT. AND IF THE TOP BRASS IS FINALLY READY TO DEAL WITH IT, THAT MEANS THERE’S NOT MUCH TIME LEFT FOR US.
IF YOU WERE HERE, I COULD SHOW YOU MORE. WHEN ARE YOU COMING?
DID YOU FIND THE PHONE I LEFT FOR YOU? YOU HAVEN’T CALLED. OR MAYBE YOU HAVE, AND THE’VE ALREADY BEGUN CUTTING THE NETWORKS. THAT COULD BE THE CAUSE OF THE RECENT CELL PHONE PROBLEMS. RIGHT BEFORE AN ATTACK, THEY ALWAYS TRY TO DISRUPT COMMUNICATIONS. BUT I’LL KEEP TRYING.
THERE ARE SOVIET SPYPLANES FLYING OVER THE U.S. WHENEVER THEY FEEL LIKE IT. WHY WOULD THEY BE SO BRAZEN UNLESS THEY WERE PREPARING FOR SOMETHING, GATHERING TROOP POSITIONS AND MESSING WITH CELL TOWERS?
WHEN I WAS AT SPAWAR, WE WERE ABLE TO SECRETLY ACCESS THE TRANSMISSIONS OF ONE OF THE SOVIET’S MOST IMPORTANT SPY SATELLITES. SO DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY DID? THEY SHOT IT DOWN. THEY DESTORYED THEIR OWN SATELLITE, TO KEEP THEIR INTEL OUT OF OUR HANDS.
THEY DID IT AGAIN IN 2013. AND THEN AGAIN JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO. THEY’RE TRYING TO HIDE THE ATTACK.
THERE’S STILL TIME FOR YOU TO MAKE IT DOWN TO ME, BEFORE THEY UNLEASH WHATEVER THEY’VE GOT PLANNED. BUT YOU MUST LEAVE RIGHT AWAY. I KNOW I TOLD YOU NOT TO TAKE A PLANE BEFORE, BUT MAYBE IT’S WORTH THE RISK. THERE REALLY WON’T BE ANYWHERE ABOVE GROUND THAT WILL BE SAFE. SAY THE WORD AND I’LL HAVE A PLANE TICKET WAITING FOR YOU.
YOUR MOTHER HAS TAKEN SO MUCH AWAY FROM ME, NOW I FIND OUT SHE’S SELLING FAMILY HEIRLOOMS? THAT SILVERWARE WAS A GIFT TO MY FATHER FROM WHEN HE WAS STATIONED IN ENGLAND AFTER THE WAR. HE GAVE IT TO ME WHEN I MARRIED YOUR MOTHER. THE ONLY REASON I LET HER TAKE IT WAS BECAUSE IT WAS MEANT TO GO TO YOU. NOT TO BE SOLD TO A RANDOM STRANGER.
$500 IS A JOKE. SHE KNOWS IT'S WORTH WAY MORE TO ME FOR YOU TO HAVE IT, SHE'S JUST TRYING TO HURT ME.
YOU SHOULD JUST TAKE IT WITH YOU WHEN YOU LEAVE. WHEN AREY OU LEAVING?
I’VE taken so much away from YOU?! You’re delusional, Howard! You’re sick. This whole thing is just sad and disgusting. It’s a morbid fantasy of a complete lunatic. AND it’s a violation of your restraining order, I already called the police!!!
And no, no “Soviets" helped me get into your little secret hiding place here. Did you really think I wouldn’t remember when you gave Megan your father’s medal, then blew up at her because she accidentally misplaced it? Megan was so terrified, it took months for me to get her to tell me what happened.
At least this time, somebody you tried to dupe with your conspiracy theories saw through the lies and showed me to what you’ve been up to here. There ARE some decent, caring people left in the world. I’m not going to tell you who, because you’d probably try to hurt him for crossing you. And you’ve hurt enough people already.
Howard, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE – You can blame me for whatever you want. Just leave me alone. Move on. Your paranoia cost us our family, how much more will you let it take from you? From me? You need help. Serious, professional, medical help. You’re not well.
Deep down you have to know you’ll never see Megan again. So I’m begging you, for the last time, forget about us. I’m so tired of being afraid of you. Nothing for years, and then you pop up like this, and it’s like you’re taking away everything that I’ve worked so hard to rebuild.
Whatever crimes you imagine I’ve committed, I have more than paid for them. Please let me move on. And get help.
My friend, please forgive my intrusion on this personal site. But time is of the essence and I needed somewhere away from prying eyes and ears.
Throughout the years we have danced along a fine line between enemies and friends. But I have always respected you as a colleague and taken you seriously. Even though they have tried to silence us both, the dance always continues.
