Very often the best man is the best friend of the groom and so he is one of the persons that knows him best.
I had a case where I had the speech of the best man for the person I was looking for. My client provided me with it and it was such a great source of information. Not only helped it to follow his steps through his life, it also helped to reveal his character and his behavior. Of course, no one would say anything bad about the groom at his wedding, but there will be a good portion of truth in those words.
We found out that he was a member in some clubs, that he was doing sports during college. That he once even saved a life. It was just a joy to read it.
