Has there been any attempt find him since this? He raped someone I know in 1991 during the time of his release from supervision. I NEED to know where this man is. Help me. Just respond here. I will be notified of any comments following mine.

Because I said the word NEED with CAPS? Thought if I had put some emotional charge into this comment I might get some help. Hope you have no idea what this man has done to the people his "minds" exploited. His disease does rub off on people and it makes the world different. Hope you can look at this without your rose colored glasses. Thanks for just mocking me and not actually helping.

Who r u to be wanting to know where he is? U might be a criminal urself and wanting to cause harm to this man. Yes, it is possible that he had been acting but we'll never know for sure. The only one that will ever know is God. But, I'll tell u this...if ur not law inforcement, then u have no business trying to get hold of Mr. Milligan. If he was acting then he's a really good actor and may God have mercy on his soul. If he wasn't acting and he really did have multiples, then I hope he has learned to cope with what his multiples did as well as his step-dad not for anybody else's sake but his own. All-in-all, I hope u can find peace in urself so u don't feel it necessary to go after people when u should be letting the law handle it. Thanks 4 reading

That is a question that would make sense to ask. But if you don't have information you are just public inquiry. The victim is my fiance' and she has been going through much therapy since she lived in Ohio and was around this man at her young age. She was close to him and his family for a few years. During the supervision time. That's all I can say. I have looked for contact information everywhere. She has night terrors thinking he is in the room at night. She startles and fades into silence in the middle of a sentence if something remotely triggers her. She could sleep well and move on with HER life if she knew he was dead now or no where near her for sure. She may feel that she must confront him someday... maybe by letter or email...who knows. That will be up to her. She was under the age of 18 at the time when he was 36 I think. The point is... the unknown is tearing her apart... she has come along way since she has surfaced all this from back then. Also he was declared as fused personalities. She knows for a fact that they weren't. Maybe he still needs to be supervised. Maybe others have been hurt since. She may want to press charges. I'm just starting the mill to get what I can when the time comes she may want to do that. I'm not a criminal and not law enforcement. I want my wife-to-be to move on from this monster controlling her thoughts over 15 years later. Thank you for anyone who will actually respond to this someday with some leading information. If not I will not defend my intentions again.
If this is his family responding to me or anyone who knows him. I'm so sorry you feel like you must defend him. He is a lost soul... but realize his lost soul has killed many souls in his wake... no matter if he is telling the truth or not. It has spread since his release. Help bring somebody peace from the destruction he has caused.

An interesting story. It actually sounds like he had a huge demonic influence in his life. Unless you have a spiritual understanding, this may not make much sense. But it accounts for his accents, knowledge and skills, and the languages he could speak and write.

@Justice I hope that you and your fiance will find peace and that she will be able to move past the horrors of her past.

Since no one has heard from Billy-24 in over ten years, what are the chances of his still being around? He's become a ghost.

I hope Cameron and Schumaker bring his story to the big screen. It would make a decent thriller.

Thank you. She has feared the release of that movie... since she already feels like he is everywhere...seeing billboards with daily reminders will not help at all. I've been tempted to read the book but I already feel like I am overwhelmed with this whole situation already. I don't need to feel pity or understand him. I have enough to trouble with this at the moment.

Statement taken from Wilkipedia...

Last known:
Release
Released in 1988 after a decade in mental hospitals, Milligan now lives in California where he owns Stormy Life Productions and makes films. He still claims to suffer from multiple personality disorder.

Thank you. That company and website no longer exists "Stormy LIfe". I know when he was released...I have studied the wiki. I know his last know residence was in California. The rest is a mystery. I know his mothers phone number but I don't have the guts yet to talk to her. I think this is a lost cause. I may have to look for professional assistance. Thank you for reading anyway. Just want to make it clear. NO ONE SHOULD FEEL SORRY FOR HIM! People are born with illness all the time. We don't just let them wander the street. He needs to be back under supervision.

I went to school w/ this guy. He is crazy, but split personalities? Lets just say he is very smart and leave it at that. I would not feel sorry for him.

I just finished reading the book about Billy Milligan....Heartbreaking....A nd to think that his stepfather never was punished....But Billy suffered more and more. People, who call themselves professionals, sure have a way of throwing thier weight around unjustly. That judge that committed him to Lima was totally out of line. He never ever listened to the doctors that were helping him. The abuse that goes on in these places is unbelievable! I feel so bad for this poor man. I hope he is ok where ever he is now....

I am so sorry for your fiances pain. I'm sure it is horrible not knowing exactly where he is. I believe the main person to blame is his step father. Whether Billy really had multiple personalities or was faking the fact of the matter is either way he is very screwed up in his head. I hope you are your fiance find peace and happiness. God bless you

Thank you! Sadly she and I have been separated for over a year now and most of our issues stemmed from her inability to trust men. I have dropped my chase for information of his whereabouts. My only consultation has been to pursue the rights of the screenplay that would place Billy as the victim and give the rights to her so she will be able to rest easy that the film, that was being written and shopped around with James Cameron while she was being raped by Billy, will never be released and never make the him money. Hey James Cameron's publicist and PR? If you just got a Google Alert from this post. Here is the whole story. Return my calls.
