Don't forget, thats $200k in 1971 dollars. That was a BIG chunk of change back then, about equal to 2 million today. If he was smart about how he spent it, it would have gone a long way. With somebody to launder it, he could easily be a millionaire many times over today. Or he could be 36 year old bear poop.

Probably, but if you're around my age, you don't want to get caught spending any of it.
