Anniversary of Greenwich man's disappearance leaves family with little hope
It's been one year since a Greenwich man disappeared while on his honeymoon, and his family still has many unanswered questions.
George Smith vanished from a Royal Caribbean ship last July 5 and his body was never found. Smith's family believes he was murdered on the ship, but the FBI will only say the case is an ongoing investigation. The family believes Smith's widow, Jennifer Hagel, has more information that she has not revealed. They say they also feel betrayed since Hagel dropped them from her wrongful death lawsuit and settled with the cruise line.
Meantime, Smith's family is lobbying in Washington for tougher safety regulations on cruise ships. Last week, Congressman Chris Shays introduced legislation that would require cruise lines to report all statistics on missing passengers.
