The Knoxville News Sentinel had a very interesting story from 1982 today:

In the actual paper there is a priceless photo of our Fat Future Sheriff Ronnie Seals. Of the hundreds of pounds of coke that never reached the evidence room, wonder how much Fat Boy walked with. Didn't one of the deputies disappear shortly afterward?
Didn't the president of the First National Bank of Gatlinburg commit "suicide" after it was found that the bank financed the plane's cargo? That was one of those famous "Sevier county suicides" covered up by the Gatlinburg Police Department and former DA Al Schmutzer. Smutzer left his home on Bluff Mountain scared to death he was to be the next "suicide" and moved into his current home in Sevierville.
By the way, didn't a now-county commissioner pick up the pilot and the other man at the airport, instead of their leaving "on foot"? How about it Crow?
This plane made a lot of law boys rich and other people dead. Kind of like how it is now under Hoss Seals.

And, from out of the past rides the great DA, Schmutzer - willing to discuss this case as an 'achievement' as opposed to a failure!!??

Was he completely satisfied with this ruling, or, if given a chance to take it back, how would he answer that question, if asked?

The follow-up on this interview is lacking!

Nothing unusual to Sevier County.

Why didn't they allow him to applaud himself in 'job well done', showing him clapping his hands
as a compliment.....sickening!
