My dad is Tony a lot so let's in 1969. He was working as president Nixon's private investigator. Tony alas with gets a phone call get up to Chappaquiddick. Senator Ted Kennedy's car is gone off a bridge. A woman was in it and she's dead he's one of the first investigators on the island and interestingly enough no. So he decides that all on one of the best things to do would be too. Actors if you were a reporter so I believe he games insult and aimed at Ferguson. And Ferguson does not exist nor does the newspaper. Chain that he says that he works for. But is the perfect dice for him because he can ask all the questions that he wants and nobody you'll ask him any questions. And he he actually it's said that it it it worked almost as good as a badge because Daley said people do look to talk. You'd against retrace the steps of Senator Kennedy. To find out where was the party he goes back to the cottage to see if he can get some type of evidence as Tina was their drinking or what was going on party. He can't find anything there there. I want to be can happen immediately lit up or it was over it was cleaned it was a bit she's you know they grow anything. Little bottles anything of that. Everything is just scrubbed clean. My galleries who were flabbergasted it'll lot actually as it related to this particular case and there were so many things the fact that there was no autopsy. Done but also the fact that the evidence was not capped the fact that everybody involved. The so called boiler room girls. Were whisked away. The very next morning he felt that it is said was the one of the greatest unsolved. Mysteries. Sometimes I wondered if it became more for personal mission he made have been sent there by President Nixon but. It felt like something became more personal to him that he felt somehow connected. To the to what had happened. What really dog him until the end of his decades who was the fact that. There was never any and that all there are our questions and more questions for justice. Not being served. That bothered him. I'd say more than anything.
