Is there a connection between George Brothers, Harald Dude (Colombo Family) & Haleigh Cummings?

I am continuing my investigation into the realtion of Christopher & Jeffery George & Harald Dude to the Haleigh Cummings kidanpping investigation.

During recently released audio files William “Cobra” Staubs talks with Jerome (Williams) & a woman going by the name of Barbara Freeman. In those files they discuss a larger crime boss that Ronald allegedly owed $26,000+ to and the name “George”. I today’s news I happened to notice that a pair of twins from Palm Beach FL have had their Pain Clinics raided and are currently under investigation for illegal pill sales, money laundering, and more.  There is also a connection between the George Brothers and a Crime Boss for the Colombo Crime Family. That connection is Harald Dude. I have amassed various links from newspaper articles to show the connections between these people.  Are these people behind Haleigh’s disappearance?

Police in Kentucky, Tennessee and Ohio say they have made separate arrests of drug suspects carrying pills prescribed by

doctors at that clinic, owned by 28-year-old Christopher George of Royal Palm Beach, records show.

George has no formal medical training _ although he does claim a financial stake in an “anti-aging” clinic founded by his

twin brother, Jeffrey George, court records show.

Christopher George, a former draftsman with a home builder, pleaded guilty in 2002 to possession of steroids with intent to

sell, after postal inspectors tracked a package of pills he ordered on the Internet, court records show. He also pleaded

guilty to grand theft for stealing a motorcycle, records show. He served concurrent sentences of five months in jail and

three years’ probation.

George’s brother Jeffrey, who has a criminal record of grand theft and resisting arrest _ owns two other South Florida pain

clinics, records show. The brothers are now tangled in a court dispute over the profits from South Florida Pain.

A meeting between Christopher George and an undercover DEA agent wearing a recording device yielded even more evidence of

the alleged unethical practices of the clinic such as money laundering and illegal distribution of prescription drugs,

according to the documents.

George allegedly told the informant that he had “40 million in assets that needed to be laundered,” according to the

documents, and that he was carrying about $50,000 in cash that “reflected one day of income from the American Pain Clinic.”

This article gives more details into the George Brothers Pill Mill operations.

In the suit, prosecutors said George has been under investigation on suspicion of drug trafficking and money laundering for

18 months. Investigators said George tried to conceal his role as American Pain’s owner by listing his mother and

girlfriend as “straw owners” on corporate records. But George, 29, of Royal Palm Beach, has not been charged with any

crimes.

The suit describes American Pain as a massive — and massively lucrative — enterprise, attracting 250 patients a day from

Kentucky, Ohio and South Carolina to buy painkillers. Prosecutors described the patients as mules in a drug-running circuit

throughout the South: Out-of-state couriers could buy one pill of the painkiller oxycodone at American Pain for $5, and

resell the narcotics in their home states for as much as $80 a pill, the suit says.
Those details are contained in a forfeiture lawsuit the U.S. attorney’s office filed this week seeking to seize three

houses from American Pain’s owner, Christopher George. The suit was filed Wednesday, the same day federal agents and local

sheriff’s deputies raided American Pain and two other clinics operated by George’s twin brother, Jeffrey.

Crime Boss- Colombo Family

According to this article from Palm Beach Post:

As they made their way in the pain management industry, the twins, who often were at odds with one another, did business

with a colorful cast of characters — including the investor ex-husband of a notorious Palm Beach socialite and a captain of

the Colombo crime family, state and county records show

http://www.barryroderman.com/article3.html

A man identified by federal authorities as one of South Florida’s most infamous organized crime figures has won a $13

million verdict from a Miami federal jury in a civil racketeering case against his former business partners – one of them a

Palm Beach socialite and former husband of Roxanne Pulitzer.

 After a two week trial , an eight-person jury found that Dude acquired an interest in Palm Beach Ventures, Mobile

Management Corp. and Florida Ventures Inc., the companies that owned Club Diamonds and the shopping center, through “a

pattern of racketeering activity, which included bankruptcy fraud and obstruction of justice.” They also found that Dude

was associated with an enterprise “to conduct or participate indirectly in such enterprise

According to this article the Crime Boss mentioned in the previous article is Harold Dude, former husband of Palm Beach

Socialite Roxanne Pulitzer. Ms. Pulitzer is the ex-wife of an heir to the Pulitzer Family Dynasty.  The following article

details her life & loves, including a mention of a 3rd husband and a tell-all book.

This article talks more in depth about The George Brothers & Harald Dude’s business relatioship.

By 2008, the brothers were running pain management centers in Palm Beach and Broward counties. Between setting up clinics,

Jeff George branched in other directions.

In early 2008, he planned to open a massage parlor in West Palm Beach when a broker introduced him to investor Harald Dude,

said Dude’s attorney, Marshall Rosenbach.

Dude, husband of Roxanne Pulitzer until the couple divorced in 2001, was embroiled in an ugly legal battle over a West Palm

Beach strip club, and he jumped at the chance to lease space to the young businessman.

Fighting Dude for ownership of Dreamgirls, formerly Club Diamonds, was Thomas Farese, a captain in the Colombo crime

family. Farese was convicted in 1998 of using the club to launder money. He’s been wrangling over the North Congress Avenue

business ever since.

Jeff George’s massage parlor, Executive Touch, never got off the ground, but soon after the failed venture he approached

Dude about leasing the contested strip club.

In February, Dude, weary of Farese, struck a deal to sell an interest in the company that owned the shopping center to Jeff

George, Rosenbach said. As co-owners of the property, Jeff George and his father now are moving to evict Farese. The case

still is pending in Circuit Court. Reached Friday, Farese declined to comment.
In this article Pultizer describes Harald Dude, the break-up of their marriage, and his Crime Family connections.

She married Dude, a German businessman who moved in the same circles as her former husband Peter, in 1995. He was quiet, well—mannered and, she admits, the worst pick she ever made.

“He is the one I’m most embarrassed of,” she says. “No one believes me when I say I did not know he owned Club Diamonds (a local strip club). That first year, we were living it up: plane, boat . . . then the next year, everything was gone —  bankruptcy. That’ll be tagged to me forever.”  Their battles in Palm Beach and Aspen, Colo., were legendary. They divorced in 2000, yet he still attended the wedding of Roxanne’s son, Mac. “I’d just gone through a year of hell,” Roxanne explained. “Harald (Dude) had cut the electricity off in my house. I’d  caught him in bed with a girl. His Mafia friends were gonna make my head into a hood ornament. So I hadn’t been out with anyone for about a year. I’d been in counseling. It just wasn’t going right.”

I am continueing my investigation into the realtions of these people and how it relates back to Haleigh Cummings case.
More to come and some people think there’s nothing to be afraid of by investigating this case…..
