Hackett was a businessman in Collinsport who purchased a parcel of waterfront property from Elizabeth Collins Stoddard in 1967. Elizabeth’s business rival, Burke Devlin, learned of the purchase and questioned Elizabeth’s intentions on selling it, claiming that Hackett would raze the land and destroy the environment. He accused Elizabeth of selling the property in order to acquire some fast, ready cash as part of a pay-off to Jason McGuire. Elizabeth denied the charge, but Burke’s accusation was actually quite accurate.
Later, Carolyn Stoddard would take up with a biker named Buzz Hackett (252-262) who once said he was from a family that made "big money" (257). However, the reference was vague and no relationship to Hackett was ever established.
