This is not a quote from the article, so where did you get it? In fact this statement runs counter to the thrust of the article you posted.
The essentials seem to run thusly. A fantastically wealthy man, who earned his money in the foreign property market, is found eight months after his
vanishing act, wandering the streets, and unsure of some of the details of what happened between being kidnapped, and the time he was found.
Seems to me that there must be something that will explain his memory loss. Medically speaking, there are various possible explanations, including
but not limited to amnesia bought on by blunt force trauma to the head, some sort of neurological failiure, like a brain bleed, things of that nature.
However, since the gentleman appears to have been kidnapped, there is also the possibility that apart from seeking ransom from his family, the
kidnappers may also have used interrogation techniques on the victim to prise from him some secret, perhaps the location of a stash of money or deeds
to property. Traditional methods can include severe beatings, more modern methods may have included waterboarding and simulated hangings and so on.
But the possibilities that the above scenario presents do not end at tortures. The target could have been drugged with any number of substances,
including cloroform, and in a worst case scenario, scopolamine. We all know the effects of chloroform, typically shown in movies as being used on a
rag, held over the mouth and nose of the intended victims, inducing unconciousness. Scopolamine for instance has been reported to put people in such a
suggestable state, that they will assist in the theft of thier OWN organs! People have helped theives empty thier houses, withdrawn thier life savings
under the instructions of bandits, all of these have been attributed to this drug. Its most common in Mexico and other nations in the central and
south Americas, where the plant from which it comes grows. However, as we know, these things can be transported, despite border controls.
This drug, and others which fit into similar categories, can cause memory loss as part of thier side effects. Now, if the victim in this case had
been drugged with such a thing, for the reason of wresting from him some secret, then it may be some time before he acclimates to normalcy after this
ideal, and discovers what the kidnappers may have done with the information he might have given them. Furthermore, we may never find out about it,
especially if that information relates to the sort of secret that the authorities might be unfavourably interested in.
If the carving of obscenities on the victims skull is a fact, then this may indicate prior familiarity with the target, or a personal grudge against
him for one reason or another.
Of course, this is all speculation. However, there are very few reasons that a kidnapper would carve things into thier targets head. It makes no
sense to hurt a target, if the intention is solely to aquire a ransom for thier safe return. There must have been something more going on than a
simple kidnap, must have been more to it than a desire to get rich quick by taking a well off face from the property scene.
Something feels deeply fishy to me, and I am sure that there is more to learn. As I mentioned, there are several reasons why we may never find out
more on this, but rest absolutely certain, that there is something properly messed up at the back of all this.
