I hope that Ms Best prevails, but this is one rabbit-hole that often has fatal consequences. A friend and I got chased into the woods in Nella AR back in 1985 while hitchhiking up to Ft Smith by a couple of guys in a pickup truck (they were armed with pistols).
I've been diving into Mena for decades... I've hitched all over the country and this is the only place I ever had a problem. Seals was CIA, that's why he ran his operation with impunity. Everybody that's investigated the "Mena Connection" has either been killed or, as was the case with several state investigators and the IRS, were completely discredited and their careers destroyed.
