451. Lamar White on the death of Huey Long.
451. We talk to Lamar White about the death of Huey Long. Our friend Lamar White has recent written a series of major articles on the final days and death of Huey Long. Using his research skills as both a reporter and a lawyer, Lamar closely examines the testimonies and physical evidence regarding the assassination of the Kingfish. He concludes that the initial account was substantially correct, and that Huey Long was killed by Carl Weiss, Sr. Listen today to hear Lamar go through the evidence, right down to the supposed bullet holes in the marble walls of the capitol in Baton Rouge.
