Silk Road Employee Who Dread Pirate Roberts Tried To Kill Comes Forward
from the not-quite-what-you'd-expect dept
In the statement, he notes that he was basically a customer service person for Silk Road, helping out when there were problems and also keeping an eye out for potential fraud and/or law enforcement activity to report to Ulbricht, whose name and identity he never knew. He insists that he "never used illegal drugs and I never intended to be directly involved in illegal drug deals," but it does appear that he does admit to the basic claims that were in that indictment against Ulbricht: that he "helped" a drug dealer (who turned out to be an undercover agent) by agreeing to receive a large amount of cocaine. That resulted in his arrest, which in turn lead to Ulbricht trying to have him killed, claiming money was stolen. Green insists no money was actually stolen.
Once again, it seems like the real story may be even more fascinating than anything Hollywood could make up.
