Melvin Dummar, I hear you saying. Melvin Dummar. Now who. . .

Next clue: Howard Hughes.

Morman will.

Oh yeah, the guy who claimed that he found Howard Hughes out in the middle of nowhere, gave him a lift, and was mentioned in the will as a result. Nice try, ha-ha-ha.

But.

There was a longer article in the Wall Street Journal. And one of the people interviewed was the pilot who actually flew Hughes up to that area on that day.

It seems that Melvin and Howard met very close to the entrance of a brothel. Hughes was just leaving.

Wouldn't that be something? More than 30 years after being branded a liar and a fraud, the witnesses are finally coming forward.

still doesn't think he'll get the money, though.
