A Pirate's Estate


A Pirate's Estate? We're joined by author and North Carolina historian Kevin Duffus, who has spent the last year fighting to be named executor of the estate of a man who has been dead for more than 250 years... and who was widely thought to be a pirate. Edward Salter was thought to be a member of the crew of Blackbeard the Pirate, and Kevin Duffus has been on a quest to find out more about the fate of this man, since there are conflicting reports about his death. We'll take a look back into the 1700's and at a much more recent drama including the remains of man who may have been a pirate.
