Ep 274 - Stanley Meyer: Inventor or fraud?

6/9/2024
Ep 274 - Stanley Meyer: Inventor or fraud? In 1998, Stan Meyer - who had made headlines claiming he found a way to power cars using water instead of gasoline - was having dinner with Belgian investors when he drank his juice, grabbed his throat, and proclaimed he had just been poisoned. He died the next day. The Franklin County Coroner said Meyer died of a brain aneurysm, not poison, but supporters still wonder if someone killed Meyer to stop his work. Others, however, insist Stan was a charlatan, and his water fuel design a hoax. www.ohiomysteries.com feedback@ohiomysteries.com www.patreon.com/ohiomysteries www.twitter.com/mysteriesohio www.facebook.com/ohiomysteries Additional music: New Horizon - Aderin; Audionautix- The Great Unknown; The Great Phospher- Daniel Birch Learn more about your ad choices.
