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.

    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.

Labor of love, labor to listen to

I applaud the host’s efforts to share this story and find info on her missing friend. However this is difficult to listen to. The production quality isn’t amazing, but ok for an individual that is not backed by a production house. My issue is that the host speaks over and interrupts guests with her stories and thoughts constantly during interviews. Just let the guests speak and share their version…

Paul Racing

I found your podcast researching John Paul, I was an IMSA racing fan back in those days. At 75 years old, I attended races at Road Atlanta and most anyone that was an enthusiast somewhat knew thru the grapevine about the drug side of funding. I think I still have Autoweek magazines I saved from 80’s where they had a 3 part series about Paul Sr. Which was around the time he was sentenced to prison. I look forward to your pod and story. Keep up the good work. I live in Macon Ga around 100 miles SW of the Road Atlanta track👍🏼
