Mandy Davis to Members of The Magic Circle
Yesterday at 11:31am · Letchworth, United Kingdom ·
I have been asked to post this here in the hope someone may know something...........................Know anything about this post about Rachel Colombini?
This story gets stranger. The following was posted two days ago in response to someone claiming to have seen a death notice posted by Aldo's daughter Barbara:
"I am Rachel's niece back in the UK.
We, nor Barbara have had any contact with Rachel in over a year - we were unsure of her whereabouts and the family have been trying to make contact for sometime with family news. Barbara was under the impression she was here with her family in the UK - that's not the case. She had been informed of her death by a friend of Rachel's in Florida but that is all we have heard.
She last visited us in the UK 3 years ago and hasn't been or heard from since, we have been trying to contact her to no avail.
We have had no contact from any official body confirming her death or whereabouts and we have contacted every embassy, police force and friend or family member we can think of however no one has any information.
As you can understand, her family are extremely distressed and concerned as the Facebook post was the first bit of information we had received.
If anybody at all has even the slightest bit of information on her movements over the last 3 years, we would really appreciate you contacting us.
My email is email@example.com
or my UK mobile number is 07932850162.
I will of course up date here with any news. "

Peter Zenner She must have had four surnames, James. When I met her she was married to a magic dealer in the Manchester area. I can't remember his name though; he wasn't one of the "big" names.

Peter Zenner I have just done a Google search and came up with a posting by someone called "Blathermist" on The Magicians' Forum - "Bad and very sad news. I haven't seen Rachel for years, but did see her regularly when she lived over Manchester way and her name was Fenton. My abiding memory of her is in the Magick Shoppe in Sheffield. We (a group of us) were stood around gabbing, when for some reason she decided to stand on her head. Fun times..." I think that she was from Stockport, which is very close to Manchester.

Peter Zenner And this is from her biography on http://www.ibmring81.com/RachelWildColombini.html
- "I established Wild Magic in 1999 in the US (Wild was my maiden name) and began dealing at numerous conventions all over America and all over the world. After a couple of years I got back into close-up performing as well as dealing and then began lecturing on the art of magic." So that's Rachel Wild-Fenton-Jones-Colombini. Sorted!

Mandy Davis I only know her family were in the Manchester area and she quarrelled with them when she and Tom came over for her dads funeral. She left them and came to stay with us, refusing to go back for the funeral.
