    Mitchell L. WerBell III article on RIA

    https://www.rockislandauction.com/ri...ch-werbell-iii

    Some good info and some stuff I have never seen before.

    Figured I'd share for those that don't subscribe to the auctions

    What an interesting and sketchy man.

    Dealey Plaza? Really?

    Someone ought to make a movie.
    My name is actually Scott and I really do live in Texas.

    I know, not very creative but it is factual.

    Woah, I'll have to read that later. I have that SoF magazine and other scanned articles talking about Werbell. Thanks for sharing!

    Me either.

    Knew flint took one on a assassination attempt and got chaired for the rest of his life but never new he had any dealings with WerBell.

    Or the whole coke and smile protection either.

    Gotta be a lot of stuff about the guy we will never know.

    WerBell was a used car salesman. While interesting and I have no doubt of some of his exploits, I would take it with a grain of salt.

    Still a good read - even if dramatized. Agree it would make a good movie.

    That's a good description of "The General", but he lived a full life.

    Maybe a used car salesman with an umbrella in the "grassy knoll".
