    Unless a link is included, anything I say, is my opinion and my opinion only. It may not be the truth as others see it, but I do have the right to my opinion.

    I ran across this interesting article written a couple years ago about Gabriel Caporino. Seems fitting to post it today, 40 years since the day Gabe disappeared.

    http://www.registercitizen.com/gener...-investigation

    One of many disturbing excerpts from it:
    On Sunday, March 10, 1974, Ison and his colleagues met privately with New Orleans police, barring members of the Caporino family. This crucial meeting presaged, if it did not predestine, the shocking and abysmal refusal of the New Orleans Police Department to follow up on basic and compelling leads, including the forgery of Gabe Caporino's credit card four days after he was reported missing. This forgery was ultimately documented by the FBI crime lab. Significantly, a Sears employee who witnessed three individuals using Gabe's credit card recanted after a visit by New Orleans police.

    Instead of trying to find Gabe Caporino, the GF corporate leadership acted in concert with New Orleans police to trash him with unsubstantiated allegations ranging from gambling and unspecified industrial espionage to mob connections and inept whore mongering.
    From the same search, Gabe has also been ruled out as any of these unidentified persons.
    Ruled out as UID 2490 in San Bernandino Dec'74.
    Ruled out as UID 9509 in Virgina Beach Feb '83.
    Ruled out as UID 2303 in Pinellas Co Oct '92.
    Ruled out as UID 1506 in Pinellas Co Mar '81.
    Ruled out as UID 2871 in Phillips Co, AR in June '82.

    One would NEVER need a cab to go to the FQ from the Intercontinental. I call BS
