FOUND HIM! He ain't dead...he's now a moonie under total control of some hippie babe he met online years ago on another board. This isn't to say he'll speak to me...in fact he's hiding from me, afraid I'll bring about an intervention to free him from her talons. I talked to a realtor last week who is selling his compound back on the bayou, who spoke to him the day before. I looked for obits in three parishes for weeks when he could have given me a simple heads-up and a "fuck off" ie he was off the boards for good.
