  • Like you said on another vid 'Las', I also take headlines with a pinch of salt unless corroborated. Other than former acquaintances statements there does not appear to be any physical evidence that he was a crack addict. The report I read about the autopsy following his death does not support that addiction either.

    • i read about his addiction to speed across different sources, not just the two i posted here. people that knew him say he was a loner and, at some point, got addicted to speed.

      i'd appreciate a URL regarding the autopsy. in such an autopsy, though, i would think they'd be trying to determine which bullet killed him. but maybe they tested his blood for meth/drug use as well. i don't know. but i will continue to believe he was a speed addict short of better information -- if you read the whole de More..

  • Yea, i ran across the story some years back.
    Here, i think;
    http://www.colinhewitt.com/ansell.html

    There was a documentary about Ansell called
    'To Fight The Wild'
    ...pretty hard to find now.. since he sold the rights to his story, then later killed a cop.
