  • Hey guys — George Vizard, to whom I was married at the time of his death, had no “e” in his last name. Just thought you might like to know.

    (I now spell my last name differently from his, but still no “e.”)

  • Michael T. Milligan says:

    I was a high school classmate of George, and my first wife, Sunny Caylor, was two years ahead of us and a close friend of his mother. We all attended Thomas Jefferson High School where Mrs. Vizard was a teacher. He was quiet and studious, a nice guy. Turned into a big time radical, but he would have mellowed with time, as we all did.

  • I worked at the prison 6.5 years where Robert Zani was at and let me just tell you he is one crazy man. I had run ins with him on almost a daily basis. It was not uncommon for him to send me bizarre letters which I still have to this day. There’s a lot to talk about with this one.

  • Sloan rodgers says:

    My mother worked with Zani and testified at his trial.
