I vaguely remember the Billie Sol Estes name as a young kid. Didn’t he also have something to do with some land scam outside of Houston? Can’t remember the name of the place now.

The land scandal may
be the Sharpstown scandal of the early 1970's that brought down a group of state politicians around the then-speaker of the Texas house, Gus Mutscher. I think that was the time that Sissy Farenthold became semi-famous in Texas politics, along with the Daniel family, for standing up to the "players".
Estes was from south Texas and played down there. As I recall, grain was his medium of play.
