I recently viewed Vegas Mafia on Nat Geo. I would like to reach Chris Lent or Virginia Quinn regarding MY involvement with Frank Cullotta and the hole in the wall gang back in 1980-82. I have never before revealed information that I'd like to contribute. You have my contact information and I would like to discuss what my involvement was with Frank Cullotta as well as The Las Vegas Metro Intelligence Division, specifically Lt. Eugene Smith and Det. Cordell Pearson.
