- "Economics consultant Rinfret said Spence tried to create an image of mystery and intrigue to attract international clients. "He did cultivate that image. It was a commercial objective: Saying, 'I'm in,' " Rinfret said. "I really thought he was CIA. He always tended to be a bit mysterious. ... He ran his own intelligence network in the U.S. and Japan. ... He made himself fascinating.""
- "Some believe that Spence may have been up to something with the electronic equipment that friends observed in the house."
- "After working as a press secretary for Massachusetts state Speaker John F.X. Davoren for a couple years, Spence worked at WCBS in New York, and then signed on as a Vietnam correspondent for ABC in 1969-70. "He was a mystery man," remembers colleague Jim Kincaid, now an anchor of WVEC-TV in Norfolk. "Craig always looked like he had learned something that no one else knew." Trotta recalls that Spence pulled disappearing acts in Vietnam -- sometimes for weeks at a time -- leading people to think he was killed. Then he'd turn up, refusing to say where he'd been."
