For what it's worth there is a rumor (propogated by David Bersson)
that William Barden, Motta's designated heir to SOTO, accused Motta's
Lawyer Daniel Ben Stone of robbing Motta's grave.
recently died and his website, which was I assume was the source of
this rumor, is no longer up an running. Jana Rutkowski who was the
only member of SOTO with Motta at the time of his death, once informed
me that the rumors about Stone's desecration, involved stealing his
bones, so I would imagine that he was not cremated. One would assume
that Daniel Ben Stone would know these details, and last I checked
could still be contacted through his PO Box at:
Daniel Ben Stone
Washington, DC 20036 USA
Also according to Koenig, Gregory von Seewald knows the location of
Motta's Brasilian grave and has provided a picture
and the register
, though Koenig's
entries are typically not very useful. Mr. von Seewald can be
contacted through his website:
