Minor Cooper Keith's Involvement in the Banana Massacre?

Hello Everyone,

My name is Kevin, and I am the illegitimate Great Great Grandson of Minor Cooper Keith. As I've gotten older I've came to be interested in the stories my family kept under wraps. I've been doing some research and came upon the "Banana Massacre". I wanted to know what my Great Great Grand fathers involvement in it was. Through research I came to find out that the massacre happened later in his life and that he would pass not soon after. Did he have any hand in it? Was he running UFC at the time with total control or was there someone else in charge of operations at that time? Of course I would like to hear that he had no involvement in that incident but of course facts are facts if he did.

Thank you so much, & have a blessed day
