This was how a lot of robbers would work. Jewel thieves/etc- they knew they'd get caught so the operation was to rob/steal, bury the loot, go to jail for 5 years, then come out and dig up their money.

The Silkroad guys did this for sure. Right around when their sentences were ending a lot of BTC in old wallets moved around lol.

DPR got life, but died in prison

Edit: no shit I had him confused with another darknet market admin. I hope to God we free that dude, he was an honest outlaw that doesn't belong in a cage

Not dead yet...DPR/ Ross Ulbricht was sentenced to a double life sentence plus forty years without the possibility of parole

Still in prison. On Dec 09,2021 closed a NFT auction for 1447ETH,($6.27M at the time) which will allegedly fund efforts to relieve the suffering of the incarcerated and their families, as well as the fight to free Ross from a life in prison
