"If you want to stay alive, it's time to go into the catacombs. Promise me you will keep your mouth shut!" -David Ferrie talking to Judyth Vary Baker
David William Ferrie (March 28, 1918 – February 22, 1967) was an American pilot who was associated with the CIA, New Orleans mafia boss Carlos Marcello and anti-Castro cubans.
He was involved in a conspiracy to assassinate President John F. Kennedy. Ferrie denied any involvement in a conspiracy and claimed to have never knownLee Harvey Oswald. Decades later, photos emerged establishing that Ferrie had been in same Civil Air Partol unit as Oswald in the 1950s.
