Sorry fellow radsafers....I just coverted to a new email program that 
addresses replies a bit differently, thus the cause for a personal 
message going out to you all.

Again my apologies.........

Thanks for volunteering to post info that RadSafers can read from 
someone other
than "armchair gumshoe" sources.  Being the lead investigator on the 
investigation board, it is inappropriate for me to comment in a public 
until our investigation is complete.  But I appreciate someone close 
to the
source willing to volunteer confirmed information for the benefit of 
our Radsafe
newsgroup.  Again, Thanks.
