Northwest Herald Article Front Page - January 1, 2009The Northwest Herald covered the story with this front page article appearing in the January 1, 2009 issue.

“A Wonder Lake woman thinks she discovered who killed her father’s close friend and her former bus driver 27 years ago.

Armed with her father’s suspicions, Holly Hager did a few Internet searches on a convicted murderer from McHenry and found an excerpt from a mob associate’s biography that loosely described the 1981 double homicide in a Lakemoor bar.

She drove to Gurnee to get a copy of Frank Cullotta’s 2007 biography, which details several mob-related burglaries and slayings before Cullotta became a government witness in 1982 to avoid his own prosecution.
Cullotta didn’t name the victims. But he stated that his partner-in-crime, Larry Neumann, told him he shot two people in McHenry County to avenge a perceived slight involving his ex-wife.”
