Our main project at this time is a documentary that tells the true story of a World War II veteran who disappeared in 1987 and wasn’t found until 2013. His remains were located by a hiker, who found his partially buried car in a ravine in John Brown Canyon, Gateway, Colorado.
Ronald Dale Vasey was my grandfather. He was suffering from lung cancer, and his immediate family, law enforcement, and the media all jumped to the conclusion that his disappearance and death were actually due to suicide, my Grandfather allegedly having succumbed to the pain of his condition.
But a document that I found in his briefcase, which I inherited from my mother, suggests that Grandpa Ron was worried that someone would try to hurt him and/or his family as a direct result of an invention of his: a magnetic motor. Grandpa was a very rational man, even highly intelligent. He felt that there was real cause to fear big oil, and the energy sector in general.
This was in the 80’s, mind you. Fear of the Soviet Union was high. Energy, as a dirty industry, was at its peak. And then, there’s the fact that Grandpa actually did vanish for nearly 30 years. In this film I will cover three theories, one of which is the mundane suicide story. The other two will take viewers down incredible paths.
Together, my viewers and I will truly discover who my grandfather Ronald was, and is.
This project is still in the early days, and is completely unfunded at this point. I’m looking to change that with the above fundraising teaser/trailer. It will the be first of several, but for now it’s all I’ve got. Please watch it and provide feedback via form, email, on Twitter, or by way of comments on YouTube.
Mahalo for your interest in this project!
