I called Dr. Peele using the number I had for him — (407) 929-5611 — which is the number that appeared on my called ID when he called me a few weeks ago. I dialed *67 first so that he wouldn’t see my Los Angeles area code, although that didn’t matter because the call went to his voice mail anyway.

I left a message asking him to please call me as soon as he could, twice repeating my phone number and spelling my name and my mother’s name.

Update: As of 3:29 PM EDT on Monday, August 13th, he has still not returned my call. Detective Whittier told me that he called him Monday morning as well and has not heard from him either.
