Welcome to Chalice Paul: Disappeared-the True Story. Chalice Paul, born Chalice Alford on August 31, 1947, was 33 years old when she went missing in the summer of 1981 and is most likely dead.
She was presumably last seen in the Florida Keys with her second husband John Paul Sr., the infamous race car driver and convicted drug smuggler of the late 70’s and early 80’s.
Through interviews with friends and family of Chalice, as well as those that had associations with John Paul Sr., I hope to shed light on her tragically short life, and finally discover the truth.
My name is Lisa Collomb Gandolfo and through this new podcast, I’m hoping to shed light on my friend Chalice Paul. She was born as Chalice Alford on August 31, 1947 and disappeared in the summer of 1981 and is presumed to be dead.
Her second husband was John Paul Sr., the infamous race car driver and convicted drug smuggler of the late 1970’s and early 1980’s with whom she was presumed to be last seen in the Florida Keys before she went missing.
