Michael Rockefeller disappeared in 1961 Cannibalism Earworm

This is a new one on me.  Michael Rockefeller was consumed by "savages" in 1961?

He was the son of Vice President Nelson Rockefeller and he went missing on a jungle expedition in November of 1961.

His body was never found.  He was legally pronounced dead in 1964

NETFLIX is releasing a documentary about it.

The complete story is on the Smithsonian website.  Fascinating.

  1. I read a book about this last year....very interesting

  2. Fairly common knowledge among history buffs. A friend of mine wrote a play about it. The general consensus in later years was that he actually drowned, but getting eaten by cannibals makes for a much sexier headline.
