Jennifer Smith said she had very little memory after leaving the casino the night prior. She had been found passed out in a hallway around 4:30 a.m. -- the time George Smith is thought to have gone overboard.
Turkish police boarded the ship and interviewed the last known men to see George Smith alive. Josh Askin and three Russian-American men: Rusty Kofman, Greg Rozenberg, and Zach Rozenberg. They said they had partied with George Smith into the early morning hours. [Shown clockwise from top right: Kofman, Zach Rozenberg, Greg Rozenberg and Askin]
According to the young men, shortly after 4 a.m., they had brought George back to his cabin and while Josh went to the bathroom, the other guys had taken off George's shoes and put a drunken George to bed. This is a photo of the Smith cabin showing one of George's shoes on the floor.
The Smith family has never believed the accident theory. They believe there was foul play and point out that an "ear witness" heard an argument on George's balcony and George's blood had been found in the cabin -- two small lines of blood on the bed sheets.
In 2010, Mike Jones got his hands on Royal Caribbean's case file. Room service records do not show any order being delivered to the men last seen with George Smith that night. Mike Jones believes that their alibis don't hold up.
Mike Jones took the depositions of the four young men last seen with George Smith. In 2010, he found Greg Rozenberg in a Florida prison serving a three-year sentence for trafficking oxycodone. Greg Rozenberg told Jones he didn't have it in his heart to kill anyone.
Jones learned of a potentially damaging videotape made by some of these men just hours after George disappeared. On the tape, Jones says the three Russian-Americans are seen and heard making callous remarks about George's death and at the end Greg Rozenberg says "I told you I was gangsta."
The FBI is in possession of the provocative videotape and the Smith family wonders why more has not been done. Lawyers for the young men say that their clients did nothing wrong. No one has ever been charged in connection with George Smith's disappearance.

The Smith family hopes that one day the case will be solved and say they will never stop fighting for George. July 5, 2014 will mark 9 years since he disappeared.
