You all right?
Yeah. It was Gordon Kahl, son Yorie, Scott Faul, Wilbur Lundy, guy named Lester Tompkins, all members of the Posse. Kahl did the most damage.
He shot Bob Cheshire point blank. He executed him.
You're sure it was Kahl?
Hell, yeah. I talked to him at the clinic after.
The ambulance took us all to Doc Earns' clinic in Medina and there he was.
All of you were there?
It's the closest doctor. Yorie was there and I guess Kahl came to see how he was.

Opinion of the movie In the line of Duty: Manhunt in the Dakotas
It has been many years since I've seen the move In the Line of Duty: Manhunt in the Dakotas but It was poorly done. First off I live in the state that it happened. THe film was made in Georgia which isn't like North Dakota. I don't know how they could have shown a movie that was supposed to have taken place in North Dakota in the winter and not have shown snow. I remember there being snow on the ground at the time of the shooting. They made us North Dakotans with southern accents which, we born and raised North Dakotans, don't have. The film was very one sided. I didn't know Gordan Kahl personally but my grandfather did. Despite his faults and beliefs, Gordan had many friends.
