Glenn Barton again. Notice the mysterious guy on the left:
he often came out of the building, stared to the other side

I have been told that his name is Roy Rodriguez, and that he is known to be very nice and friendly to everyone, and rescued an invalid neighbor lady from her house as it was burning down. He was also helpful to me in the incident with the bird lady. However, in 1984, he was arrested in Clearwater after he chased and handcuffed a former Scientologist.
