CLINT RICHMOND - Fetch the Devil: The Sierra Diablo Murders and Nazi Espionage in America
Saturday, July 19 at 4PM
speaking & signing
|In 1938, the wife of a powerful executive went missing along with daughter after their car broke down in El Paso. A week later, their bodies were found in the Chihuahuan Desert. Richmond is here this afternoon to share the true story of the El Paso sheriff who tried to find the truth about their deaths, going up against Texas Rangers, local officials and a Nazi spy ring operating coast-to-coast through a deep-cover portal at El Paso. Based on long forgotten archives and recently declassified FBI files, Richmond paints a convincing portrait of a sheriff's dogged investigation into a baffling murder.|
About Fetch the Devil:
The true story of a Texas sheriff's dogged investigation into a baffling murder, the international spy ring that orchestrated it, and America on the brink of World War II. In 1938, Hazel Frome, the wife of a powerful executive at Atlas Powder Company, a San Francisco explosives manufacturer, set out on a cross-country motor trip with her twenty-three-year-old daughter, Nancy. When their car broke down in El Paso, Texas, they made the most of being stranded by staying at a posh hotel and crossing the border to Juarez for shopping, dining, and drinking. A week later, their near-nude bodies were found in the Chihuahuan Desert.
