The Case Of The Missing Appalachian Drug Smuggler


Just before Halloween, 1984, a small plane slammed into the side of Fancy Gap Mountain in Carroll County, Virginia, scattering a half-ton of pot across the mountainside. The discovery of the plane triggered an international manhunt for the Southwest Virginia owner of the plane that didn’t end until 2015 when the U.S. Attorney’s Office finally dropped the case after failing to locate any trace of the plane’s owner. On today’s podcast, Rod and Steve tell you the story of the missing Appalachian drug smuggler.
