GEEEZZZ, What a shame.
My heart goes out to all involved.
Drives and tabs up, he was probably running hard.
One more time darkness was a factor, are we beginning to see a pattern here?

Any new news on this story. Did they ever find the guy? I know that there has been a lot of controversy about what happened.

This story gets pretty thick!

If I remember correctly he may not have parished in this accident...or so called accident.

Correct me if I am wrong.

I don't think they ever found a body.

I seem to remember reading that he was about to default on a big loan and the authorities were looking for him someplace south.

As I recall, the accident was a setup. He was in debt and fled the country. I don't recall if they caught him.

last I heard he was still in south america[no real proof though], last time i saw him was at a TOPPS party in lake charles during the contraband days 7 months ago, he was on his cruiser 'living extra large" he sold his smaller cruiser " living large " sometime back. his Baja was named "living extra fast" he had a crane company that would sell and rent large cranes. he had a big death ins. policy and had taken out a loan for a few million dollars also. he was a cool guy that liked to have fun.
