Maciej "Bam-Bam" Bambaryła (1943-2006) was a Venedic boxer and probably an arms dealer, who became known all over the world as a possible accomplice in the murders of Jean-François Young and Empress Gacudai in 2006.
While his older brothers Jużeń and Szczepan pursued careers in the military and the clergy respectively, Maciej "Bam-Bam" Bambaryła had made himself a reputation of a juvenile delinquent. Having spent seven terms in youth prisons, he decided to channel his tendency for excessively violent behaviour in a different fashion: he became a professional boxer.
His successes became almost legendary: in 1964 and 1966-69 he was RTC champion at middleweight, in 1968-1970 also at heavyweight. In the years 1969-1972 he won the world title at heavyweight. His punch gave him the nickname "Bam-Bam", a word play on his last name. Although many people found his style dirty — he was a typical brawler — he was considered virtually unbeatable.
However, the tide turned after a series of sensitive defeats in Australasia (1972), the NAL and South Africa (1973). Bam-Bam developed an alcohol problem and disappeared from the boxing scene as quickly as he had emerged. Things got even worse for him after 1976 when his sport school in Kordyn bankrupted. After 1982 he owned a night club in Warsina. Although his name has regularly been linked to organised crime, more specifically to the Olęca Siekrzota, sufficient evidence for prosecution could never be found.
On 24 August 2006 Bam-Bam was arrested in Biloxi (Pays-Lointains) by a peloton of Louisiannan gendarmérie. He was having a meeting with an unidentified second person . One week later, on August 31, Bam-Bam died under mysterious circumstances in his cell.
Maciej Bambaryła had two older brothers: Jużeń, an army general who became governor-general of Southeast Florida in July 2006 , and Szczepan, a Roman-Catholic priest who spent his entire adult life in the clergy, first as an army chaplain, later as a missionary worker in Venedic West Africa. He also had two sisters, who never occupied any public positions.
Mysteries around Bam-Bam's death
When Bambaryła was arrested by the Louisiannan police, it was first assumed that he had something to do with the bombings in Rontalon and Grignors, or that he had been selling arms to the FLDS, one of the militias that terrorised Deseret at the time. Indeed, although it was never officially proven, Bambaryła had already acquired the reputation of an arms dealer a long time before. But after August 28, the day when Louisianne's first-president Jean-François Young and Japan's empress Gacudai were assassinated in Lyons-sur-Mizouri, his name appeared frequently on the list of suspects. Had the double murder been plotted by high-ranking RTC officials? Or, had he been sent by the Olęca Siekrzota, and was the murder the work of one or more organised crime organisation? What was the role of his brother, the governor-general?
Things got even more mysterious as Bam-Bam was suddenly found dead in his cell, one week after his arrest and three days after the murder of the two heads of state. Louisianne declared he had committed suicide. However, before that statement was made, rumours had already spread that the zeppelin that was supposed to transport Bam-Bam from Biloxi to Paris-sur-Mizouri, had been raided by a group of armed men possibly connected to the Olęca . Some believe that Bam-Bam had been murdered by the Louisiannan police in attempt to conceal its own role in the assassination. Others claimed that he simply had to be eliminated by his own accomplices, for the simple reason that he knew too much.
A third possibility could be that the raid on the prison transport had actually been successful. In that case, Bam-Bam might still be alive. This theory is supported by the fact that Louisianne keeps refusing to hand over Bambaryła's body to his family in the RTC.
More than anything else, Bambaryła's arrest and death pointed analysts to the conclusion that the murder of Young and the empress were in fact the result of a terrorist attack by several organised crime organisations in the world, primarily the Olęca Siekrzota and the Japanese Yacuza. The perspective of an international network of collaborating organised crime organisations is something that terrifies the world, as the power of such an organisation would be enormous.
