More About Dusty

Dusty Winslow was born in Pasadena, Texas in 1962. After he graduated from high school, he went to work at an oil refinery in Deer Park. There was some trouble, and he left Texas.

He wandered around for a while, got married a few times and finally settled down in Hamilton, Montana in 1991. He fly fishes, hunts, and hangs out at the local bar. He tells people that his occupation is substitute fishing guide.

Since he doesn’t really seem to work, there’s a lot of speculation on just how he can afford a 56 acre spread next to the National Forest. Some say he won the lottery. Others think that he stumbled across D.B. Cooper’s body and the hijacking money. Rather than telling anybody about it, he just kept the money for himself.

One story is he robbed a bank in Guatemala and carried a suitcase full of money back through the jungle. Folks say he snuck back into the United States with a bunch of illegal immigrants and that he keeps the suitcase in a closet next to a loaded 12 gauge. They say he’s still wanted by Guatemalan authorities.

Dusty doesn’t talk about his past much.
