Being a Connecticut native I’ve heard of his story.39 Years Birthday Girls 39th Birthday Queen September 1981 shirt As I recall, the most common belief was that his disappearance was related to the gun-selling operation. I have written so many of these that I recognize frequent commenters. I could always tell you were from Connecticut too, and I have always really appreciated your feedback! I think it makes a lot of sense that Andy was involved with the gun-selling operation. I know it may be difficult for his family or friends to admit, or they may have a reason not to, but I think it’s clear that over the years Andy was getting involved with shadier business. They may. not know about it if he was as secretive as he described. He was involved with exotic clubs which can foster criminal elements (the last time I went to one, the men I accompanied had to get patted down for guns,) and he was apparently a big time gambler who bet with bookies.

I wouldn’t be surprised if he met a criminal element and became involved with any type of crime, but it seems supported here with the connections he and Charlie had with the criminals.39 Years Birthday Girls 39th Birthday Queen September 1981 shirt Charlie seems very suspicious, too. Several people have stated that’s their theory! Anything is possible, but I’m not sure I agree. Andy sounded like someone who was a risk taker (shown by his risky business choices, gambling, having a woman on the side, etc), driven to succeed financially, and confident. I just don’t see him walking away from his businesses and his life. I hadn’t thought of it, but that makes sense to me. From everything I’ve read he was a man who exaggerated and who some might consider flashy (i.e., the gold jewelry he wore,) although others might chalk that up to culture. I’m sure he had a big mouth and could have leaked his plans while he was showing people the cash, or just said the wrong thing to someone.

Having lived in Connecticut and Rhode Island in the 80’s, I also had heard of this before. Also having lived there, I can tell you that at that time and place, the real Mafia (not the TV ones but the real ‘feed people into a meat grinder’ types) were very prevalent. 39 Years Birthday Girls 39th Birthday Queen September 1981 shirtReading this, I noticed that NONE of the names of people involved are from the known Mafia families or associates. I’m wondering if Andrew Economou didn’t accidentally step on someone’s toes and got taken out for it. Because he MUST have had at least a nodding acquaintance with Mafiosi people, from being in the strip club business. They RAN the ‘tiddy bars’ as they were called then. So I wonder if he decided to try his hand at illegal gun running and someone thought he might be pushing into their corner of the action. Again, just a thought, I don’t know anything besides what I read, and honestly, having been there, I don’t WANT to know. The Mafia influence is very strong in that part of the country.
