Meet The Silk Road Employee That The Dread Pirate Roberts Allegedly Tried To Murder

By Ryan Mac

The alleged murder target of a secretive online drug kingpin was a 47-year-old semi-pro poker player and self-proclaimed former heroin addict who was caught with $27,000 worth of cocaine.

On Thursday, court documents filed in a Maryland district court revealed that Curtis Clark Green confessed to being an administrator of the Silk Road, an anonymous online drug marketplace. Known online as “chronicpain,” Green was a vocal member of the drug community who worked closely with site leader, the Dread Pirate Roberts, and frequently shared personal anecdotes and detailed advice on using and dealing illegal substances.

Early last month, federal authorities detained the man they believed to be the Dread Pirate Roberts, arresting 29-year-old Ross Ulbricht in San Francisco and accusing him of narcotics trafficking, money laundering and hiring hitmen for the murder of two people. One of those targets was Green, a grandfather and former paramedic who also sold oxycodone and other painkillers on Silk Road.
