Does anybody that knew Wallace Thrasher have any good stories about him by chance? He's been profiled on WSLS and Americas Most Wanted in the last few years.

I wouldn't call it a good story, but I know who he was playing cards with while after his plane crashed and he was supposedly dead.
Those guys were supposed to testify that they were playing poker on such and such night, but before they had to take the stand his wife said she thought he had died in the original crash, but then another man came to her house and gave her is last effects- wallet, wedding ring, and watch and said that he had crashed and died in another place.
I have heard from very reliable sources that he got into the business for the thrill; not the money.
He was also featured on Unsolved Mysteries back in the day. Those same reliable sources said they bet that the Colombian cartel killed him after he hit the DEA's radar.

That's interesting. I wonder if Nelson King is alive. I think he refused to testify about his knowledge of what happened to Thrasher. So he obviously knew something. I kind of think he may be alive since there's been sightings and they're advertising his wanted status. WSLS and Americas Most Wanted have had stories recently.
So you're saying he was hiding out in VA still after the first supposed crash?
I wonder why Olga thought King stole the money?
