Francois De Roi
Shady fake Belgian Colonel
“The Colonel”, pretended to be a Belgian colonel raising funds for troops during World War I. In reality he was a high-class con artist and associate of “Red” Caswell. He looked into Barnett’s activities for Caswell in the 1920s, then was tapped by Barnett to run a high-stakes poker game in the back room of the Chapel Blanc Gallery.
