Who is Walter Shaw, and what does his story have to do with private investigations?
At 16 he was a "soldier," but not in any traditional army. He became the youngest member of the Mafia.
In 1967, he was on his way to becoming one of the top jewel thieves of the 20th Century. His victims included the Duponts, the Vanderbilts, and Liberace, just to name a few. A master "millionaire" jewel thief, at the age of 19, he drove a Rolls Royce. At 23, he had a house in the, exclusive Emerald Hills section of Hollywood, Florida.
Between 1967, and 1975, he had been arrested "27 times," for burglary, counterfeiting, grand theft, extortion, kidnapping, and suspicion of 1st Degree Murder. At the age of 27 he was sentenced to 52 years, and spent 12 years on death row not because he had a death sentence, but because he was being protected from a hit by the Mafia. He was beaten, kicked and stabbed. It took 189 stiches to sew him up. He was hung, and had glass put in his food. He lived through it all to become a free man.
Among his other accomplishments. . .
He wrote a book.
He produced "Genius on Hold," a documentary.
He is in the process of producing a new documentary, "The Unknowns - Talent is Color Blind," the story of the Highwaymen.
So again you may ask what any of this has to do with private investigations. Come to the meeting and find out!!!
