He told me New York Post: “That guy just seemed crazy and then in conversation he said, somewhat silently, ‘Stupid Southern and f-ing Republican.’”
He continued: “I kind of laughed and said, ‘Well, where are you from? And he said, ‘New York,’ and I said, ‘Okay, New York,’ and he said, “I have a name, this It’s Brian.”
When news of Gabby’s disappearance broke, Mannies’ friend called her: “She said he was the mad man at the bar,” he said.
Manese said he contacted the FBI and spoke with them for 45 minutes. “How many people from New York named Brian who look exactly like him are nowhere in the bar?” he said.
