On 3 April, a feature in The Independent (with video) reported that a millionaire businessman killed in a plane crash led a double life financing an international drug ring, according to federal prosecutors. It is claimed that Marty Tibbitts was CEO of telecommunications company Clementine Live Answering Service but was known as “Dale Johnson” in the drug trafficking world. He died in a 2018 plane crash when the vintage fighter jet he was piloting crashed. The allegations are contained in a federal indictment against Ylli Didani, the leader of the global drug smuggling ring that sold cocaine in 15 countries. The death of Tibbitts is said to have scuppered the planned submarine and caused a financial crunch for the cartel, which was forced to allegedly find new funding in the UAE.
