Contact me and maybe i can help.
Allan (two "l"s) was a close friend of Jerry Freeman; Jerry found the trunk. Allan had hoped to make "millions" on the footage he took but shortly after the story broke, everything came crashing down.
The trunk was a hoax—thus the mame "Bunk Trunk." Allan, I'm certain had nothing to do with the hoax. He, like Jerry, clung to everything claiming to the end that the trunk was authentic. LeRoy
