The Mysterious Disappearance of Ray Sutton (Well, maybe not so mysterious after all.)
"On Aug. 27, 1930, Federal Prohibition Agent Ray Sutton filed his routine daily report from his post of duty, Clayton, N.M., to the deputy Prohibition administrator of the Albuquerque, N.M., Office. That would be the last report he ever filed.
By the following evening, when officials became suspicious by Sutton’s failing to file his daily report, a local sheriff searched his room at the Hotel Seaberg in Raton, N.M. The sheriff found Sutton’s personal effects and portfolio records, including his everyday topcoat. Sutton had not checked out of the hotel nor had he been seen there since Aug. 28. . ."
Go here and read the rest. I swear, as Charlie Quintard is my witness, I had nothing to do with it. I wouldn't be surprised if some of Aunt Jenny Brooks' descendants did though.
