It was October, 1984, when a single engine plane crashed into Fancy Gap Mountain in Carroll County.
One man was killed - but authorities found much more than a body in the wreckage.
The crash led to the unraveling of an intricate web of drug dealing - that spanned from Southwest Virginia to South America.
