Barbara Piotrowski and Richard Minns House

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have the address? I read the book but this calls for a redo. :)

I thought it was the modern looking house on the north side of the intersection where Memorial splits off from Briar Forest.

I know Subdude.You wouldnt believe what goes on with the rich and elite in Houston.

Richard Minns was a real piece of work. Very rich, very good looking, athletic -- his biggest claim to athletic fame was water-skiing completely around the perimeter of Lake Tahoe three times in a row. He made his fortune by founding the Presidents-First Lady Health Spa chain and it was big. He had them just about everywhere.

I met him in 1973 at the grand opening of his club in Fort Worth, and I remember him as your typical good looking smiling smooth talker who could charm the cash out of your wallet and your lady-friend into his bedroom.

The feds thought they had him when he was arrested on passport violations while passing through Texas back in the 90s, but his lawyer cut a deal that allowed him to plead guilty, pay a fine, and go on his way. They had nothing else to hold him for. He immediately left the country for Ireland, where, I think, he still lives today.

Check this out. It's a bit long, but it tells most of the story of Minns and Barbara Piotrowski. http://www.spring.net/yapp-bin/public/read/tv/69
