I've posted all 35 pages of the Lake Berryessa police report.

Here's a link.

On page 7, we're told that Ranger White said that Hartnell said that Z claimed to be "an ex-con out of Colorado." However, on page 24, we're told it was "(?) Lodge State Prison (possibly Deer Lodge State Prison), Montana..." We're also told that Hartnell believed he was stabbed 6 times.

Ed ,did you see the date on the report? 7/28/69? I am not at home at this time, so I don't have my notes on which page it is on sorry. Did anyone come forward who was on the boat that Hartnell saw?

Note,as I KNOW you have,that BH claimed to ask the perp, at least twice,exactly WHAT prison he escaped from and he says the hooded figure begrudgingly said "Deer Lodge."
I quoted from this interview and other sections in past posts on this very detail.

Quite right, Howard. It looks like the "ex-con from Colorado" thing that White reported is so much BS after all. Deer Lodge, Montana, it is.
