Murder over a Monkey-Wrench


A little search for Saathoff on Footnote.com turned up the image seen here--a reference to a shooting in Texas. This was in the Investigative Case Files of the Bureau of Investigation 1908-1922, Old Mexican Case Files (click on Bureau of Investigation), 1909-21, NARA film M1085, case 2187.
The "hand" is not on the original document or image--it's just my little helper. Actually I got a little carried away when making the screen dump.
I'm not related to the Saathoff family of Texas. However, they were of Ostfriesen extraction as were my Saathoffs. All Saathoffs are not related--but that's a story for another posting.
