Keith Nygren's name is on the Crime Scene Log for that night of June 7, 2011. I have a copy of the Log. Supposedly, Nygren and Zinke showed up just before midnight and stayed for a grand total of 15 minutes. Before I saw the Log, I had heard that Nygren had flown back to Woodstock on the morning of June 8, and I had wondered whether the taxpayers footed the bill for his flight. Oh,
What got me interested in this case was how quickly Nygren announced "who done it" and, in effect, closed the case. How do you properly investigate three deaths and announce your findings less than 24 hours later? Oh, wait: June 2011 ... this is during the period Zinke claims to have been running the sheriff's department.
If Sheriff Nygren was not at the Crime Scene, why is his name on the Log? Maybe Zinke knows the answer...
Here is Cliff Bloom's statement and recommendation for Bill Prim as the Republican candidate for Sheriff.
