We could use it in the cistern," Roux said. Bob, get your crew together and get going. Everybody else, we'll meet back here in a half hour. Henry, I want updates every couple of hours today, and then every morning and evening until we close this out. Let's get this done, guys. Let's get it done in one big hurry. If there are really that many dead women, and we didn't know about it, didn't connect the disappearances, then the killer is smart and careful.
I mean, really careful. This could take time. If we do, that's fine. But if we don't, the media's gonna be a hair shirt, and we're all gonna be wearing it. Anybody else talks, you'll be manning the new bureau down in Bumfuck, Minn.
Lucas spoke to Shaffer for a few moments after the meeting broke up, with Del orbiting around them. Shaffer and Lucas didn't particularly like each other, but had worked several ugly cases together, with good results.
They agreed that Lucas would be on the distribution list for everything coming out of the investigation, but would stay away from the main case. Shaffer started to step away, then said, "Lucas: I appreciate what you said to Rose Marie. This could take a while. You were the right guy to tell her that. Lucas and Shaffer had been successful, when they worked together, precisely because they were so radically different in style.
Shaffer was a data collector and a grinder: His files were wonders, his spreadsheets were remarkable, his decision matrices were monuments to game theory. Anytime his agents could collect enough relevant data, his clearance rate was exceptional. Shaffer looked like a grinder: He exercised extensively and efficiently, ate right, didn't drink or smoke.
Married to his high school sweetheart, he was slender, of average height, with pale brown hair. He'd had come up the hard way: He'd kept his nose clean. Lucas was a connection collector, an investigator who liked to knit people together, to put one source with another and let them fight it out.
He thrived on mysteries. A tall, brooding man with dark hair, friendly blue eyes and a sometimes-frightening smile, Lucas was hawk-faced and heavy in the shoulders, and scarred from encounters with the misbegotten. Like Shaffer, he'd gone to the University of Minnesota, where instead of statistics, he'd studied hockey and women.
He'd never had to work his way up: He'd spent a short time on patrol, and then jumped over three dozen senior men to becomes a Minneapolis detective. Nor had he tried very hard to keep his nose clean. He'd been pushed out of the Minneapolis police department after beating up a pimp who'd church-keyed one of his sources.
He'd gotten back into the department when Roux, the new chief, made him a deputy chief, a political appointment. That job ended when Roux quit to become the state's Commissioner of Public Safety. His clearance rate, like Shaffer's, was excellent.
Lucas exercised, but inefficiently: Lucas had once had a reputation for chasing skirts; and catching them. He had a daughter out of wedlock, two children from his only marriage, and an adopted daughter. He'd drink a beer in the evening, and knew his barbecue.
With all their natural differences, in career path and personality, Shaffer and Lucas were never going to be close: Shaffer was a natural socialist, who'd grown up in an Iron Range union family. He didn't like rich people, not even self-made rich people. Lucas was self-made rich. Even worse than the money, was Lucas' whole life-style: Lucas bought his working clothes in men's boutiques, and every couple of years, went to New York. Lucas thought of Shaffer, when he thought of Shaffer at all, as a clerk.
When he'd finished talking to Shaffer, Lucas and Del went down to his office, where Shrake and Jenkins were waiting. They were both big men, in suits that were too sharp; as though they'd fallen off a truck in Brooklyn. Both had even, extra-white teeth, and for the same reason: Lucas told them about the find at Red Wing.
Let's close out Bryan. Bryan had run a St. Paul investment company that turned out to be a ponzi scheme, a scheme that had eventually come up a couple of ponzis short. He'd been arrested and the state attorney general's office was trying to get back the thirty-one million dollars that had been entrusted to him by 1, small investors, most of them elderly. Rumor said that a good deal more of the cash had gone up his nose. Bryan had divorced three years earlier, and his ex-wife, Bloomie, now lived in a house very near, but not quite on, the Atlantic Ocean in Palm Beach.
According to the local conspiracy theorists, Bryan had seen the trouble coming, had given an overly generous divorce settlement to his wife, who would support him when the problems became public and the company went broke.
There was also talk that he owned a Cabo San Lucas estate under a Mexican corporate shadow. That may have been true, but apparently had become irrelevant when Bryan's court-ordered ankle monitor went dead, and his BMW M6 convertible had been found parked near the St. Croix gorge at Taylor's Falls with the front seat soaked in his blood. No body had been found. There were, at latest count, 1, suspects in Bryan's disappearance. We should have that done by ," Jenkins said.
I'm hoping she'll let me peek in her closet. Jenkins looked offended, lifted an arm and sniffed his armpit, and said, "Yes, I do. Jenkins and Shrake left, and Lucas turned to Del, who had taken Lucas' visitor's chair and put his feet up on a file cabinet. Del was a thin man, with a sun-darkened face of knobs and wrinkled plains, a little more than average height: He was wearing a long-sleeved turquoise cowboy shirt and faded jeans over hiking boots. But Jesus, that shirt makes me want to pluck my eyeballs out.
You been hanging out at Goodwill again? Or three-thousand dollar Rumanian shoes. And when you're right, you're right. On the way out of the building, they ran into Sands, the BCA director. He was looking harried, and said, as they walked down the stairs to the first floor, "This can come to no good end. Remember I said that. He breathed in Lucas' direction, and Lucas had to fight an impulse to step back: Sands' breath was notorious.
Charlie's already getting calls from the Today Show. On the way out of town, they stopped at a BP station for gas, and picked up ice, bottled water, Coke and Diet Coke, and headed south across the Mississippi. You say, 'fifteen skulls,' and I say, 'Somebody's been a bad, bad boy. I'd have sounded like an asshole. Lucas tapped the brakes and said, "Blow me. And what you say is true. Not a new experience, for you, though. We sit around and bullshit about this stuff, like we're reading a bus ticket, but when we start finding out about the victims, we're gonna get pissed," Del said.
We'll find out about their lives, about what they wanted to do, and all the misery this killer caused, we'll start brooding about it, and we'll get pissed.
They're pissed because the politics might hurt them. They're not pissed about fifteen women down the well, they're pissed about how they're going to look on TV.
You know, the big-shot cops who let this happen right here in River City. There are the worker bees, and the manager bees. The worker bees take care of the work, the manager bees take care of themselves. They were headed out on a good summer day, but hot, down Highway 52, through Cannon Falls, and on south.
The cistern site was in rolling farm country west of the Mississippi River Valley, on a gravel road off Goodhue County 1. They spent a few minutes wandering around, after an off-map short-cut didn't work out, and so took an hour to find the site. The road was blocked by two cop cars five hundred yards out, and a half-dozen TV vans were parked on the shoulder of the road, reporters and photographers clustered on the shady sides of the vans.
The cops at the roadblock, both sweating furiously in their long-sleeved uniforms, looked at Lucas' ID. Lucas said, "I got ice-cold Coke, Diet Coke and water in the back. The shoulder was filled with cop cars, civilian cars and trucks and vans, and an empty heavy-equipment trailer. They got out of the truck, into the hot mid-day air smelling of roadside weeds.
Lucas stuffed Cokes and bottles of water into the daypack, and they ambled along the gravel road toward the farm turnoff. Halfway to the cistern site, they ran into a BCA agent named Don Buford, who saw them coming and said, "I don't suppose you got a beer in there? Hot, sunny, no wind. Tell you what, when you get up there, you'll be praying for cold, wind and rain.
They're calling it the Black Hole of Goodhue. We get it," Del said. Got boxes of skulls. Nothing for me, though. I'd eat a sandwich, if I could keep it down. You gotta go look, and look around," Buford said. Got to be some kind of crazy farmer. Somebody who butchers his own meat, or something. They left Buford in the road and walked up a slight rise to the turnoff, showed their IDs to another cop, and walked up the grassy track into the heart of the old farmstead.
There they found four people in hazmat suits peering into a hole in a concrete slab, and a dozen cops scattered through the trees and brush, watching. A yellow front-end loader's lift bucket dangled over the hole, with a steel cable dropping into the hole itself.
Off to one side was a stack of semi-transparent plastic tubs, the kind you can buy at Target, with paper stickers on the top-covers: A skull grinned out of one of them. A hundred feet from the hole, an air compressor was working, and in the other direction, a Honda generator. Power and air lines led to the hole. As they got closer, the stink hit them, and Lucas turned away.
He dug into his pack and came up with a jar of Vicks VapoRub, opened it, and offered it to Lucas, who took out a bit on the end of a finger, and rubbed under his nose. Del did the same, and they walked up to the hole, and a woman standing next to it in a dark blue hazmat suit with the hood down. Beatrice Sawyer, head of the crime scene crew. Lucas said, "Hey, Bea. He could see another person in a hazmat suit, ten feet down, suspended on a wooden platform over a murky grey liquid that could hardly be called water.
The suit was sealed, with air lines leading into the helmet. That's Hopping Crow down there now. We're trying to find a way to get the water out, without disturbing the remains too much," Sawyer said.
Don't know if it'll work. We need to gently remove it, with a flow fast enough to replace the inflow of groundwater. This cistern is essentially sitting on a spring. We can feel them, but we can't see them, and we don't want to damage them. We need to see the dental work. When we were using another pump, it got jammed up, and when we pulled it, we found it had sucked up a plastic Visa card, still readable, issued to a Janice Williams.
A Janice Williams from Cannon Falls disappeared eight years ago. She was a student at Dakota technical college. Her parents thought she'd been kidnapped, and she's never been back in touch. That's all I know at this point, but I think it's likely her, down there.
They looked away and Lucas started again: To look the place over? Sawyer had been sweating heavily in the hazmat suit, and she greedily sucked down one of Lucas' Diet Cokes.
A man stepped up behind them and said, "Hey, Lucas, Del. You guys got another Coke? We were told there was a Wisconsin guy here. Didn't know it was you. He was familiar enough around the Minnesota BCA, working cross-river cases.
He took one of Lucas' Cokes and said, "Don't have much. We didn't know whether she'd been kidnapped, or had gone down to the river and fallen in. It'd rained not long before she disappeared, and when he found her car, he noticed that her tires had made tracks in the mud, and they were still pretty clear.
He figured if she had been kidnapped, the kidnapper must've had a vehicle down there in the cemetery There weren't that many other tracks around, so he had casts made of all the different tire tracks.
I gave a list to Buford, he was here. Shaffer showed up, spotted them, lifted a hand, talked to Sawyer for a moment, then walked over. Shaffer's crew had interviewed the owner of the farm that surrounded the site, a woman named James, and from her had gotten a number of ideas that might help located the people who'd known about the hidden cistern.
Shaffer himself had interviewed the two kids who'd first smelled the decomposing body down the cistern, and the deputy who'd pried the lid off the hole. The cistern was invisible: Gotta go talk to these guys. They'd drifted away from the hole as they talked, mostly to get away from the stink. A squabble started at the hole, and they turned around to see Sawyer, in the hazmat suit, still holding the Diet Coke, faced-off with a woman in a Goodhue County deputy's uniform.
The deputy was a tall and pretty enough, but rangy like a basketball or volleyball player, with wide shoulders and a small butt. She looked like she'd been in a few fights; her nose that wasn't quite on straight.
She had one hand resting on her pistol, like she might have to shoot her way out of the farm site. Sawyer was saying, " We can't get them out to every Tom, Dick and Harry She'd come primed for a fight, Lucas thought, or perhaps spent her life angry. She was red-faced and angry now. If you're authorized to get the reports, it's not a problem: He'll be the agent in charge. He's around, I just talked to him. Instead, she rasped, "Are you giving me a hard time?
He backed away, to where Del and Bole were standing. She watched him go, then folded the notebook and stalked off across the farmyard, toward the cars. Well, some of the time," Bole said. Pretty much known for her attitude. She just doesn't have a smooth, Del-like personality. Don't have a lot of time for the local-yokels. All cases like the Black Hole murders start slow.
The investigators needed to know what they had, before they could start working patterns, asking questions, figuring out who might be a person of interest. Figuring out what they had was up to the crime scene people and the medical examiners. That would not happen on the first day. Assigned to Flag Officer David G. Butler which provided occupation troops for New Orleans, Louisiana, after Farragut's fleet captured the city 25 April.
Due to the calm weather, neither Union sailing ship could evade the Confederate fire, and both were forced to strike their colors. Morning Light, left a riddled wreck, was taken by the Confederates 21 January and burned 2 days late. Washburn to his wife. Moore has resigned and gone home We thought it was all right until he divided up the money. I finding it wrong with two more officers wrote the senior officer stating the case as it was.
I wanted an investigation into the affair. It was wrong and against the law and I want money as bad as anyone but I will not take money earned illegally. I expect a court martial to be held for the officers who received money for the ship and if Mr. Spear does not look out he will be started out of the Navy. He expresses his contempt for Spear. He describes the departed Commander as a "Sesch" and Spear always agreed with him.
Hears there will be a court martial when the Commodore comes down and the officers who took the money having a good chance of being cashiered.
Describes his slow sailing ship but would make a good ship for action because shot would go through her without splinters being so soft in spots rotten.
Here they seem to be as ugly as devils if we can take the word of refugees who come over for protection. I took some prisoners over to the mainland a few weeks ago and there was one prisoner who got some water for the crew who were with me and after I left they were mobbing the man who gave us water. While I was there they were supple as deer, for I had the men armed besides having a small rifled gun mounted on wheels. Washburn continues from his previous letter describing the illegal kickback Lt.
Moore took for freeing the ship and his contempt for Moore and his sidekick Spear At the outbreak of hostilities, he ranked as a first lieutenant and section chief in Captain William F. Barry's Company A, 2nd Regiment of Artillery. After Barry's promotion, Tidball was promoted to captain and became the company commander. Tidball served with his "flying" battery as part of the famed U.
Horse Artillery Brigade from its inception in until June With slow advancement in the ranks of the regular United States Army especially in the artillery branch. Tidball sought higher responsibilities elsewhere, by accepting a commission in the U.
He was commandant of cadets at West Point from July through September , and then returned to the field, leading the artillery of the IX Corps from October until April in the Appomattox Campaign. He became a brigadier general of volunteers and a brevet major general in His signature as Colonel Commanding Brigade, December 2nd, , 10" X 16" pre-printed and filled in application for replacement parts for a cannon belonging to the 6th Main Battery, Camp McGilvery, Virginia during the siege of Petersburg.
Also signed by Lt. William Rogers who was in command of the battery [6th Maine Battery, Captain Dow in command of the 6th Maine Battery at Gettysburg gives Rogers credit for saving cannons there Rogers, to whom we owe much of our success.
They belonged to Watson's Fifth U. Artillery, and had fallen into enemy hands early in the action. Dow summoned as many men as he could spare and sent them under Rogers's command to bring them back.
The Sixth Maine participated in the repulse of Pickett's Charge the next day, and went on to serve in all the major campaigns with the Army of the Potomac. Two nice Gettysburg related signatures, fine On page 1 is listed: On the verso is shown artillery equipment used such as chains, horse show nails, bridle leather, wheel grease, horse shoes, iron chain, roller buckles, files, file handles, etc.
All listed by quantity used during that quarter. Dow's 6th Maine Battery. Dow was attached to McGilvery's 1st Volunteer Brigade during most of the battle. Later it relocated on Cemetery ridge, where it participated in the actions of July 3. The battery brought four pounder Napoleon guns into the battle, and lost none. Eight men of the battery were wounded, and five horses were lost. In the U. Dow, the battery won an enviable reputation. Success was due to the fact that the battery was well directed and produced rapid fire, which both broke the Rebel column and also prevented the Confederates from securing the guns of two batteries they had previously captured.
Dow's Battery was just six cannons, or "guns", as they were called: Many of the other units in the area had run short of ammunition, but Dow's Battery had been held back as a reserve unit and was fresh and had plenty of ammunition.
His battery was one of the four that destroyed Pickett's Charge on July 3rd, Dow credited the success of his battery to an abundance of the right kind of ammunition. While those rebels were charging us we were sending 3, bullets a minute into them.
Though everything was going to smash around us, my battery, somehow, kept in good shape. We lost only fourteen men. Fine, some minor edge fissures - closed The list includes the items deemed unserviceable, how long they were in use, and the condition of the item.
Some items includes were 15 sabers in use for two years and "worn out", sponges, spur straps, rifle bayonet, globe lanterns, rubber buckets, cartridge boxes, rubber blankets, saber belts and plates, cap pouches, and many more items. Dow signs this large form along with the brigade inspector. Dated September 5th, before Petersburg, VA. Dockets on the verso shows referred to General Henry Hunt and approved by his inspector of artillery Lt.
He would rise to the rank of Captain and at Gettysburg his name would be etched in stone as commander of Dow's 6th Maine Battery. Later it relocated on Cemetery Ridge, where it participated in the actions of July 3. It stemmed the Rebel onset when the 3rd Corps fell back. Many of the other units in the area had run short of ammunition, but Dow's Battery had been held back as a reserve unit and was fresh, and had plenty of ammunition.
Williams by Major George G. Hastings, July 29th, , a legal analysis of the case where Sergeant George S. Henderson of the 6th Maine Battery should be tried again for the charge of desertion requested by General Meade as his first trial was interrupted by a movement of the army and it would be difficult to reassemble the court to continue the first trial.
Hastings refers to several army regulations regarding the retrial of Henderson. Hastings determines that no new trial can be ordered. The 6th Maine and Henderson served with distinction at the Battle of Gettysburg on July 2nd and 3rd, repelling Confederate advances including Picketts Charge on July 3rd.
Williams from Major George G. Hastings, August 5th, Henderson of the 6th Maine Battery could not be retried for desertion. He cites that this case does not follow the guidelines of the 87th article of war and the soldier can be retried. Henderson served under Captain Dow at the battle of Gettysburg in the 6th Maine Battery and previous correspondence shows that Dow's superior Colonel McGilvery had pursued the charges against Henderson against the wishes of Dow and had even threatened Dow for his support of Henderson.
Quite possibly McGilvery's influence played a part in this reversal. McGilvery died in the next month during surgery after the being administered Chloroform. Docketed by staff members of Hancock and Meade, well written, very fine, Included is the docket wrapper for this document also signed by a multitude of staff officers with a synopsis of the trial of Henderson Hill was killed, militia in Pennsylvania in readiness for a possible Rebel attack north, surgeons and medicines being rushed in from Washington, a great number of Rebel prisoners taken, Jackson sending 40, reinforcements to Lee.
Fighting is mainly by the rear Rebel guard as they are being pushed towards the Potomac. Many of these units fought in Mississippi [Shiloh-Corinth]. There were 26 soldiers named "Nielson" listed on the rolls. This letter is very rare regardless of the non-translated text.
Old split seam restored, in bold ink and just needs to be translated. The first Danish soldier letter we have ever handled Hunt on board the USS Metacomet. He feels that they are being "Blacklisted" doing too much or too little, then overlooked by the authorities. In our case were posted in a very dangerous place and as a gale approached our Captain concluded to enter the sound as the barometer fell rapidly.
Captain Jenkins of the "Richmond" sent a boat in after us and gave us the most disagreeable station for 21 days.
Close attention needs to be paid to our boilers. News of Grant near Richmond. Last Saturday, a steamer ran out successfully but discovered by our picket boat. But we had problems with signals and she escaped. The "Itasca" lay close to the shore and it was to intercept her and drive her back out in the channel as they always run in close to shore. The "Itasca" got her cable caught on her propeller and signaled "Assistance I need. The confusion allowed the steamer to escape safe while we all attached her running out.
The Admiral [Farragut] just arrived on the "Hartford". We go to Pensacola for a few days for coaling. Everyone is scared here about the rebel rams. A deserter came in and reported that they were going to attack our fleet with two gunboats and two rams.
Sunday, describes fishing trip nearby where they caught over fish snapper and catfish, most 12 - 13 pounds fish but some up to 60 pounds with our lines. We also caught a pound shark and when opened it had several cats and dogs inside! The shark struck one man on deck with his tail and he went head over heels. I believe they are evacuating Fort Powell and laying obstruction in the channel.
Reports say there are about 6 miles of batteries after passing Fort Morgan and 50 torpedoes; there was a great storm the other night as we almost lost the picket boats as the rolling seas made it difficult to come along side of us.
To remain out would have resulted in being driven to shore and captured as the shore is lined with cavalry scouts watching for blockage runners. We succeeded in picking them up but one man suffered a broken leg getting out of a boat. We sent a boat to Dauphin Isle to watch the Bay for rams and ironclads. They saw two, the "Tennessee" and the "Baltic" ironclad rams and the "Selma" and the "Gaines: I suppose he does not care much for attacking them now.
An excellent letter on the affairs in Mobile Bay in late May where blockade runners still came into Mobile quite easily much to the chagrin of Hunt and his ship seeming being out of the action for one reason or another on a "blacklist" At this time the City was under federal control as the City had fallen to Federal forces in April Intricate details as to the limits of the coverage are included mentioning exceptions of coverage including blockade and seizure as Confederate riders still sailed in the Gulf of operated in the Gulf of Mexico at this time.
Very fine, 50 Cent Revenue stamp affixed Numerous items were turned over to Todd by Doster which probably were captured items from Rebel sympathizers in and around Washington as Doster was in command of 4 infantry regiments, 1 cavalry regiment, and a boat flotilla cruising the Chesapeake Todd was a commander of the Lincoln Cavalry in , with the job of guarding the capital.
After being captured by the Confederates, Todd was later exchanged for a Confederate prisoner of war, and went on to become provost marshal of Washington, DC.

Secretary of War to Major Doster demanding him to make an immediate report on the arrest and imprisonment and subsequent discharge of John Regriery. The writer underlines immediate. A corner was restored, bold ink. Possibly Doster failed to pursue charges against the individual or arrested him without due cause. Very good other than restoration Records show that Abraham had commendable service but was a chronic alcoholic.
Two pages 8" X 10". Obviously the Provost Marshall was concerned about soldiers being allowed to gamble while intoxicated. Very fine, interesting content and commentary on this drunken soldier who lost his money playing Faro in a Washington saloon On Todd's personal stationary.
In the letter, he relates: He gets no response to his letters. The Rebels are coming over in our lines all of the time and for my part I wish they would all come over. He tells his sister to tell Miss Jane Reardon to stay single until he comes home and he will make it all right.

It went with Sherman on the march to the Sea and the Carolina campaigns and mustered out of the service on the 11th day of July This document shows it was examined on July 6th, most probably at Louisville where the unit was mustered out of service.
This was Charles St. A unique and scarce document issued to one of the few British observers to McClellan's Army.

In a tribute to Carson, all of the opening monologue jokes during the first show following Carson's death were written by Carson. Lassally also claimed that Carson had always believed Letterman, not Leno, to be his "rightful successor.
Following that appearance, the two had a year feud  which arose, as Winfrey explained to Letterman after the feud had been resolved, as a result of the acerbic tone of their interview of which she said that it "felt so uncomfortable to me that I didn't want to have that experience again".
This time Letterman was wearing the retired No. The appearance was Letterman's idea: Leno flew to New York City on an NBC corporate jet, sneaking into the Ed Sullivan Theater during the Late Show' s February 4 taping wearing a disguise, meeting Winfrey and Letterman at a living room set created in the theater's balcony where they taped their promo.
Winfrey and Letterman discussed their feud during the interview and Winfrey revealed that she had had a "terrible experience" while appearing on Letterman's show years earlier.
