Melvin Williams was the heroin king of Baltimore who amassed nearly a half billion dollars during the '70's and early '80's. In the '60's, he was a genius gambler who, at age 12, played against gang members and crime bosses winning thousands of dollars. By age 15, Williams was a millionaire and had established himself as a figure on Pennsylvania Avenue during its heyday when top stars played the Royal Theater.
