    Richer than Frank Lucas. More powerful than the Mafia. He was the
    biggest drug dealer in America. In 1973 he jumped bail and
    disappeared with 15 million dollars. He has never been seen again.
    Nearly four decades later, the fate of Frank Matthews remains a
    complete mystery. It s as if Matthews dropped off the face of the
    earth, explained Mike Pizzi, a retired U.S. Marshal who was involved
    with the hunt for Matthews, the fugitive, for several years. The one
    hour and 23 minute documentary features rare archival footage,
    interviews with numerous sources who previously haven t talked on
    camera about Frank Matthews and never before seen photos of
    Matthews. The documentary explores several intriguing questions how
    was Matthews been able to operate for several years without being
    detected? What was his relationship with La Cosa Nostra? Why did the
    CIA get involved in the Matthews investigation? Why has the mystery
    of his disappearance been so difficult to solve? Born in 1944 in
    Durham, North Carolina, Matthews left his hometown when he was a
    teenager, going first to Philadelphia and then to New York City. By
    the early 1970 s, Frank Matthews had become Americas biggest drug
    kingpin. His organization, headquartered in Brooklyn, stretched
    across more than 20 states, and he became the only Black gangster to
    establish direct ties to the French Connection heroin pipeline. To
    quote a federal prosecutor assigned to the Matthews case, Matthews
    was a pioneering giant of drug distribution. Matthews organization
    eventually outgrew even the Italian Mafia, and when he built himself
    a mansion in Staten Islands most exclusive neighborhood (and across
    the street from mobsters Paul Castellano and Three Finger Brown), he
    found himself on the verge of a war with La Cosa Nostra. Matthews
    also battled militant Black Muslims for control in the streets of
    New Jersey and Philadelphia as he built his empire. The $15 to 20
    million dollars he disappeared with is roughly equivalent to $100
    million in todays cash. What happened to Frank Matthews? That s the
    most intriguing questionin organized crime history, said Chepesiuk,
    who has spent five years researching the Frank Matthews story.
    Despite one of the largest manhunts in US history, there is no proof
    as to whether he is alive or dead.About the DirectorAlan Al Profit
    Bradley has directed numerous true crime documentaries including
    Motown Mafia and Rollin the Fall of the Auto Industry and the Rise
    of the Drug Economy in Detroit His first feature film, Saint Aubin
    was also released in 2012. Ron Chepesiuk is the author of dozens of
    books and the director of a documentary on legendary heroin smuggler
    Ike Atkinson.
