DOWN THE ROAD WITH THE ORIGINAL BUFFALO DALE

LIVING Bartlesville Police Reserve kicks off new year for Shop with a Cop program
Wednesday, November 9, 2011
In past years, the Bartlesville Police Reserve Inc., in association with K-Mart, held Shop with a Cop for the community of Bartlesville. This program assisted families and children of families with the Christmas season present shopping. "The children were in the lead when it was time to shop for the presents whether it was for themselves or for their siblings," said Reserve Capt. Jerry Kelley. The families selected for this holiday gift experience are selected by the Department of Human Services, said Kelley. They are then informed of the location, date and time of the meeting place. Once the families arrive, the officers then take the children throughout the store and let them shop for whatever toys, clothes or supplies they need.

elcome back. The October issue of "Oklahoma" magazine featured an article about unsolved murders in Oklahoma and in it private investigator Gary Glanz is quoted regarding the tragic beating and shooting death of E.C. Mullendore on Sept. 26, 1970. "We have got the answer. There was another man with Chub on the night of murder who helped cover it up. I am working with the D.A. in Osage County to resolve it." The article stated that an indictment could be pending. Did Glanz get a deathbed confession from Chub Anderson as he states in the article? Did he and Anderson have the type of relationship that would lead Anderson to reveal his 40-year-old secret to Glanz? And if he did, why didn't the cops make an arrest if there was a co-conspirator in the murder as he stated. Well, this information and more may all come out in a new documentary that is scheduled to begin filming here next week. The film crew is from Australia and they produce a show with more than 77 million viewers around the world which will be shining a light on this famous unsolved crime. After I was subpoenaed by the attorney general to appear before a multi-county grand jury my own attorneys have recommended that I not comment on what I know or reveal my role in the story. What I can do is give you a little history on just who Glanz is and how he came to be involved in this case. Glanz started his career on the Tulsa Police force in the 1960s where he built a reputation for having a sixth sense about crime. Before long he decided that his true calling was in the P.I. business and with not much more than his instincts he went into business for himself in the late 1960s. He received a call from E.C. Mullendore's widow's attorney just four hours after the murder and the three of them drove out to the ranch together early the following morning. This was the start of Glanz's investigation of the murder, a crime he has said many times in print should have been solved within the first 72 hours. "This was never a contract hit," he has stated, adding that he knew who killed E.C. and for $100,000 could prove that Mullendore had not committed suicide or arranged to have

himself killed in order for his heirs to collect his life insurance. At the time his death benefit was thought to be the largest ever paid in the history of the insurance business. Although the murder investigation continued for the next three years, Glanz went on solving other cases and in 1973 the Wall Street Journal published a front page profile of him calling him a "super sleuth" and the best P.I. in the southwest. As you might expect from a man who thrives on getting the job done no matter what the cost, "Dirty Harry" is his favorite movie and the weapon he carries is a Browning 9mm 15 shot automatic customized with an inch-and-a-half cut off the barrel and Smith & Wesson sights. He has said that he also packs a Walther 9mm 7 shot automatic and that neither gun has a safety. "If you're going to pull a gun you have two choices, use it or eat it." Now 72 years old, Glanz has traveled around the world working on everything from high profile cases to simple thefts and divorces usually solving his cases and solving the Mullendore murder would put the lid on his most famous case! With all that said, I couldn't leave you this week without mentioning the three-day celebration in Claremore of the man who in my opinion was the greatest Oklahoman who ever lived. Will Rogers' birthday was this past weekend and the occasion was marked with parades, children's theater, dinners with his relatives and much more. I think it would have made him happy to see how his memory and his influence have lived on. My friends Coke Meyers and Jennifer Rogers whom I met in August at the Rogers Ranch in Santa Monica were both there along with thousands of Rogers' admirers of which I am one. "They may call me a rube and a hick but I'd a lot rather be the man who bought the Brooklyn Bridge than the man who sold it." Will Rogers Me too Will. Till next week I'll see ya down the road ...
