Best friend of mine's mom hung out with him a few times in her youth. In BR. That's all I know.
She had a multi decade career in law enforcement.

Csb, I know.

I believe Judge Polozola got him killed by sentencing him to a shelter from 10 to 6 every night.
The state AG and others appealed the decision to Federal AG Edmond Muskie to no avail.

I'm holding his signature right now. He taught my paw paw how to fly.

On the way to playing golf at Howell Park he'd tell me about the time he got "cut in half" by machine guns at the Salvation Army on Airline.

re: Anybody here knew Barry Seal, or know anybody that knew him?
Seal was a fascinating story. Learned to fly at the minimum age and as a member of the Civil Air Patrol was in the same unit as Lee Harvey Oswald. TWA captain once again at a very young age. Ran guns and explosives into Cuba to fight Castro. One of his airplanes filled with dynamite was seized at the Shreveport Regional Airport. He worked for the Medellin Cartel and CIA at the same time.

So yes if anyone has any experience with him or family I would enjoy hearing more.
