Deaths elsewhere

July 05, 1991

George Bosque, 36, a Brink's guard who took $1.85 million from an armored truck in 1980 and went on a coast-to-coast spending spree, has died in San Francisco of a possible drug overdose, a coroner said Wednesday. He was 36. He vanished from San Francisco International Airport on Aug. 15, 1980, with two sacks of $50 and $100 bills. "There was all that money there, and it seemed like the answer," Bosque said after he was captured in a San Francisco supermarket parking lot 15 months later.
