Mason stormed inside the first bar around 10 p.m. that September night to accuse his wife of cheating on him with another man at the bar named Daniel Mason Woolley, witnesses told the Post Register at the time. The bartender threatened to throw Mason out “if he couldn’t clean up his mouth” ― and before long, three men dragged him outside. A brawl erupted. Woolley, a 52-year-old father of three, went outside to break it up, the Post Register reported. But at that point, Mason had crossed the street to grab two pistols from his truck, witnesses said.

The town of Bonners Ferry was established in 1893. At that point settlement was still sparse with small ranching and mining operations, but In 1980 , convicted spy Christopher John Boyce found refuge in Boundary County, for a few months, after his escape from the Lompoc Federal Correctional Complex.

Then, escaping the grasp of the bar patrons who disarmed him, he fled for the Silver Bar at the Clayton Hotel across the highway. He sat down and ordered one last drink, and then he allegedly said, to no one in particular, “I have just killed a man.”

By the time Custer County deputies arrived, he was gone. He left his pickup truck parked at Sports Club, and disappeared into the Idaho backcountry never to be seen or heard from again — that is, until this month.

On Monday, the Custer County Sheriff’s Office revealed that after nearly 40 years, Mason was discovered living under the alias Walter James Allison on a Central Texas ranch nearly 1,500 miles away, located on the outskirts of the sleepy rural town of Rising Star, Tex., population 835. Now 86 years old, Mason was arrested by Texas authorities and extradited back to Idaho this month to face murder charges in Woolley’s death, said Custer County Sheriff Stu Lumpkin.

Clinton Township Man Charged With Murder In Dooley's Bar Shooting

  Clinton Township Man Charged With Murder In Dooley's Bar Shooting ROSEVILLE (WWJ) - A 21-year-old Clinton Township man has been charged in a fatal shooting in the bathroon at a Roseville bar. Nolan Baca was arraigned in 39th District Court Tuesday on the following counts: Second degree murder, felony firearm and carrying a concealed weapon, according to Roseville police. Bond was denied. Investigators said a 37-year-old Harrison Township man was fatally shot just before 1 a.m. Sunday at Dooley's Irish Tavern,Nolan Baca was arraigned in 39th District Court Tuesday on the following counts: Second degree murder, felony firearm and carrying a concealed weapon, according to Roseville police.

The bodies were discovered in the woods behind a soccer field in a middle-class suburban town on Long Island. It was the middle of April, during spring break for the local high schools . So far, federal officials have charged suspects in only three of the killings, including the murder in September of

SANTA FE, Texas —The 17-year-old suspect in Friday's Texas high school mass shooting wore a long coat Due to the magnitude of the event and the fact the suspect has been charged as an adult, USA Police said suspected explosive devices were also found on campus and off campus in the

His identity was confirmed through fingerprinting, the sheriff said, and he has since pleaded not guilty to the charges. Mason’s court-appointed attorney could not immediately be reached for comment.

Back in the 1980s, as Mason vanished from Clayton and authorities launched a fruitless search, the town spent years recovering from the damage of the frightening rampage.

“It was a shock, I’ll tell you,” Dan Strand, a nearby resident who knew both Mason and Woolley, told the Post Register in 1986, when the paper ran a postmortem on the stagnant investigation. “Nobody could believe it.”

The fatal shooting affected nearly the entire community in more ways than one. Mason’s wife was the town’s only teacher in its two-room schoolhouse, the Post Register reported at the time. The Idaho State Journal also reported that a woman believed to be Mason’s wife was battered on the face on the night of the man’s alleged rampage. Shaken up by what happened, and the lingering publicity, his wife reportedly left town for Challis, Idaho.

With no schoolteacher left in Clayton, all the children had to be bused to Challis to attend school more than two dozen miles northeast of the town — a treacherous journey in icy conditions along a two-lane highway, the Post Register reported.

Philadelphia Police Charge Man With Murder In Shooting Death Of 2-Year-Old Nikolette Rivera

The school apparently reopened in later years when a new teacher arrived. But the challenges for the small town kept snowballing. An earthquake in 1983 would leave the school unstable, causing it to close again, and causing the community to fear for the end of Clayton itself.

“In Clayton,” the school’s superintendent told the Associated Press in 1984, “there’s little left of the community without the school.”

By the time the Post Register published its reflection on the Mason case just a few short years later, Clayton was “no longer the boomtown of the early ’80s.” The Silver Bar and Clayton Hotel were closed. The Clayton Silver Mine closed after a half-century. And most of the witnesses and even original investigators had left town. By 1990, the population of Clayton had been sliced in half, and today it is home to just seven people.

The FBI attempted to assist the Custer County Sheriff’s Office in the case until 1985, when it apparently gave up.

“All logical investigation had been considered,” Kent Madsen, FBI special agent, told the Post Register in 1986. “There were no other leads to pursue.”

Authorities stressed that Mason had defining characteristics that would make him hard to miss. In a wanted poster for Mason, the sheriff’s office noted that his arms, back and chest were covered in scars. He had also lost control of the muscles on the entire left side of his face, paralyzed by a kick from a horse during his rodeo days.

This is an incomplete list of unsolved known murders in the United Kingdom. Victims believed to have been murdered by the same perpetrator(s) are grouped together.

But Mason still managed to live quietly and unnoticed in a farmhouse in Eastland County, Tex., police now say.

It’s unclear how he was discovered there. Eastland County Today reported that the sheriff’s office received a tip that a man by the name of Walter James Mason was living on a farm on a county road just north of town ― and was wanted for murder in Idaho.

Eastland County Chief Deputy Don Braly confirmed with Custer County that it was true, and then made the short drive to his home.

When he arrived, the newspaper reported, Braly asked the elderly suspect if his name was really Mason, rather than Allison, to which the man allegedly replied, “If you did not know the answer to the question, you would not even be here.”

Mason denied shooting Woolley in cold blood, Eastland County Today reported, but claimed it was in self-defense.

He said he had been to both bars in Clayton that night in September 1980.

He left the first after finding his “live-in” drinking with Woolley, the newspaper reported, only to leave the second to find Woolley outside. He allegedly claimed that he feared Woolley would beat him to death, and so he pulled out his pistol and shot him.
