Dave Bachmann is a former McHenry County Coroner Candidate that unsuccessfully ran for coroner in 2008. Allegedly Sheriff Keith Nygren wanted Dave Bachmann dead, and asked former Deputy Scott Milliman to kill him. I will explain how Bachmann was added to Nygren’s hit list along with now deceased McHenry County Judge Conrad Floeter (Judge Floter died of natural causes) in just a minute.

Due to the Primary Election this Tuesday my article this week is a couple of days early. It is do or die time for the citizens of McHenry County. You are being asked to participate in the most important election that McHenry County has seen in decades. The McHenry County Sheriff’s Republican Primary is being held Tuesday March 18th, 2014. If you typically stand on the sidelines and only vote in the general election, you will be making a big mistake. The Republican Primary is expected to elect the next Sheriff of McHenry County and the general election will be more of a formality of actually electing the next sheriff. The election comes down to Undersheriff Andrew Zinke and former Des Plaines Police Commander Bill Prim.  I have spent a lot of time this past year pulling information together so that you all can make an informed decision on the election Tuesday. I am hoping that you raise the bar for what is demanded from our law enforcement in McHenry County and to change the face and attitude of the McHenry County Sheriff’s office to reflect more closely to its citizens.  Now it is up to you to decide our fate, so please make it count.

Dave Bachmann is a long time McHenry County resident. He moved out to Crystal Lake in 1969 with his mother, father, two sisters and one brother. His father was the former Chief Financial Officer for the Black Dot Group, which owned Graftec Press. Dave Bachmann pursued a career in the Funeral Industry. As a young man he got his start at Salerno and Son’s Funeral Home. If you recognize this name it is because you have heard of this funeral home from me. This is where my father was laid to wake and Bachmann was there. In 1987 Dave Bachmann built his own funeral home in Crystal Lake and called it Bachmann Funeral Home. He has given back to his community by serving as the President of the Crystal Lake Kiwanis from 1989 to 1990. In 2008 Dave Bachmann embarked on a campaign to become coroner for McHenry County. His platform was to provide better oversight and more outreach to the citizens of McHenry County in the matter of death.

What Bachmann may be better known for his website that over the years appears, and disappears, and re-appears again called Dirty Keith vs Dirty Harry or http://dirtykeithvsdirtyharry3.blogspot.com/.  As of this writing this website is currently up. The main character of his website is Sheriff Keith Nygren. On the website Dave Bachmann revealed that he was working for the Department of Justice while he was in Mexico. He put his investigative skills to work on his website. He went over some of the transaction between Sheriff Keith Nygren, Jose Rivera, and Home State Bank. In his blog he alleged banking improprieties, and even catching Sheriff Keith Nygren in claiming two Homestead exemptions in Illinois and Florida. He wrote about deputies that are in Sheriff Keith Nygren’s “Posse” (Posse is a reference used by Nygren and his inner circle). He wrote about a deputy who was exposing himself to his neighbor. He even warned everyone about Deputy Greg Pyle. He noticed warning signs in the conduct and behavior of this deputy. He was correct. Deputy Pyle is now inmate Pyle in the Boone County jail in Rockford. He was arrested for ten counts of predatory criminal sexual assault on a child (under age 13 and a family member), he was an Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Member. This in itself did not earn Bachmann making Nygren’s hit list.

The“McHenry County Combine” according to Bachmann of Al Jourdan, Sheriff Keith Nygren, and now deceased Phil Pagano

The“McHenry County Combine” according to Bachmann of Al Jourdan, Sheriff Keith Nygren, and now deceased Phil Pagano

Bachmann wrote about things that he believed were sanctioned or negligent by Sheriff Nygren for not taking action. In an article he talks about an illegal horse track in Union, IL. He suggests that the Sheriff Nygren provided security to the illegal races. He also talked about who he believes is calling the shots. He refers to the power brokers as the “McHenry County Combine.” It is in the same reference that I use when referring to the “Regime.” Bachmann believes that it is well connected McHenry County politician Al Jourdan, his good friend Phil Pagano and Sheriff Keith Nygren are the power brokers. Phil Pagano was a Metra executive who committed suicide after being charged with embezzling money from Metro. There certainly some bizarre circumstances leading up to Pagano’s demise. He also goes into the history of certain businesses in Crystal Lake. He suggested that old Martinetti’s hotel and restaurant in Crystal Lake operated as a brothel. After the building was torn down illegal card games would appear at John Evans Inn/formerly known as Czecho Lodge and the games were frequented by then Crystal Lake Police Chief Keith Nygren. Another story pertains to former deputy Scott Milliman who wore a wire for the FBI for a couple of years. He has uncovered and exposed so many things. One story stands out to me about when Milliman came across is children being abused in McHenry County.

Bachmann tells how Deputy Scott Milliman was on duty one night and some kids were reported to be stealing food from a convenience store because they have not eaten in days. In this story it was reported that they were living in a basement under dungeon like conditions allegedly strapped down by their wrist and ankles to concrete blocks. Milliman took the kids to a hospital in McHenry County and the doctor checking the children confirmed that they were being abused. Milliman then started to do some paper work to get the kids out of the hands of their foster care but when he told Sheriff Keith Nygren, he responded to Milliman, “If you report this, I will squash you like a F@#%ing grape!” There are many stories like these that alleges some of the worse evil that occurs in McHenry County. This is why Bachmann believes why the sheriff put a hit out on him. Bachmann even wrote about this event on his website. There is so much more! You need to check out the website right now as you never know when Dave Bachmann will take it back down. Here is a link to the site Dirty Keith vs Dirty Harry.

The stories seem outrageous and would seem that they could not happen in our sleepy little community of McHenry County, but they are consistent to what we know to be true. Many of the stories told are actually going to be heard in Federal Court during the wrongful termination case of Scott Milliman, you can read more in my article Another McHenry County Deputy under siege, Scott Milliman. Like many of us, Dave Bachmann had some personal insight to what goes on at the McHenry County Sheriff’s office and McHenry County government. He was outraged and was compelled to tell the citizens of McHenry County. He tells these stories at a great cost. His has endured threats, moved him and his family out of McHenry County, and has exasperated his already serious health condition. Bachmann has gained nothing by telling what he believes to be the truth. Match them up to what you know that is true and in the public domain. As disturbing as it all is, it is all very consistent with what we all know.

Dave Bachmann wanted to reach out to everyone and give the citizens of McHenry County a message to support Bill Prim for Sheriff of McHenry County. Here is the message that Dave Bachmann forwarded to me along with the video.

Folks, as you know we are facing the most vital election in recent memory as it relates to our county Sheriffs Department.

Although I am presently very ill, (I am sorry for my appearance in this video) I believe we should all do what we can to get our message out.

If you see fit, would you please sent this message out to as many as possible. Feel free to use it any way you see fit.

Your Friend in all things good, in Justice!

Dave Bachmann

I have put together some of the articles that I have written that are prevalent for the upcoming election in MARCH!. This is the Republican Nominee election but probably more important than the general election. It is most likely the winner in March will win in November and become sheriff. If you review the articles in the Knowledge Center, you will read all kinds of unbelievable things as it relates to this election.


My mother and father, Ron and Kathy Scharff, 1969.

Freedom of Information Act Appeal to get the remainder of my father’s file. In my efforts to get to the bottom of my father’s murder and what the McHenry County Sheriff’s office has done to me and my family 33 years ago. I filed a FOIA Request (Freedom of Information Act Request) to get my father’s case file. Many documents were withheld from my request. It is my believe the documents are withheld to protect guilty individuals that are known to Sheriff Keith Nygren and Undersheriff Andrew Zinke that covered up who actually killed my father during the original investigation. Start on page 11 to read what sounds like a murder mystery thriller, but this is my true life. It is backed by FBI reports, witness statements, and newspaper articles.

Undersheriff Andrew Zinke and the Rita Corporation on RT 31Andrew Zinke for McHenry County Sheriff, Really??? This article is based on my own father’s murder investigation and Undersheriff Andrew Zinke. I talked about how he made his own milestones and failed to meet every single one. How it took me calling NBC News Chicago to get Andrew Zinke to return my phone call about my father’s murder investigation, as he was the lead investigator. I am fighting to get the remainder of my father’s case file. It is my believe that Undersheriff Andrew Zinke and the Sheriff Keith Nygren are hiding and protecting individuals that covered up the true killer of my father during the original investigation.

Undersheriff Andrew Zinke and the Rita Corporation on RT 31Andrew Zinke plus Rita Corporation equals ON THE TAKE Brian Goode and his RITA Corporation was a person of interest and focal point for the investigation of the distribution of 30 plus tons of marijuana. Undersheriff Andrew Zinke told Brian Goode of the investigation. Two days later, according to Koziol, (Sgt. Koziol was working on the investigation and filed a complaint against Zinke) Goode gave Zinke’s election campaign a $5,000 donation. The RITA Corporation address is the same address as Andrew Zinke’s campaign headquarters.

Deputy Zane SeiplerMcHenry County Deputy Zane Seipler under siege, Again!! Zane Seipler is a whistleblowing deputy that was fired by Keith Nygren after he exposed the sheriff’s office for racial profiling. Nygren was forced to hire Seipler back after he lost an arbitration ruling, a court hearing, an appellate court hearing, and a failed attempt to be heard by the Illinois State Supreme Court. After Seipler was hired back, Nygren fired him again. Zane Seipler is currently fighting to get his job back.

Deputy Scott Milliman in uniform.

Another McHenry County Deputy under siege, Scott Milliman Scott Milliman was a deputy and former right hand man to Sheriff Keith Nygren. He was fired by the sheriff for whistleblowing that the sheriff allegedly transacted in ticket fixing, bribery, general corruption, fraud in a SBA Loan, and in tapping Milliman himself to kill a McHenry County Judge and a Coroner’s Candidate. Scott Milliman is currently fighting to get his job back.

Gary Gauger, of Richmond, was wrongly convicted of murdering his parents in 1993 and sentenced to death. After years in prison his sentence was overturned and two gang members were later convicted of the murders. Gauger is released a book detailing the event called IN SPITE OF THE SYSTEM. (Ryan Rayburn photo)

How Gary Gauger got to DEATH ROW This is the real life, tragic story of Gary Gauger. He was falsely arrested and sent to Death Row by the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department for the double murder of his parents. Investigators from the sheriff’s department rigged a false confession so that they could convict him.

McHenry County Ethics Commission, Ethical or NOT!?!? The McHenry County Ethics Commission conducted a hearing of a complaint filed by Cal Skinner that Undersheriff Andrew Zinke used a government computer for a very politically charged email. The hearing was ran over by Zinke’s attorneys Mark Gummerson and Rebecca Lee. The sign up sheet to speak at the hearing went missing but found in the possession of Rebecca Lee. The commission went into secret session, made its decision, and did so without explanation.

Pete Gonigam, publisher of the First Electric Newspaper.

First Electric Newspaper v.s. Sheriff Nygren and EEO Officer Donald Leist Pete Gonigam won a Public Access Bureau (Illinois States Attorney) appeal for the release of a 100 page report conducted by the McHenry County Sheriff’s office. The report exonerated Undersheriff Andrew Zinke after he told Brian Goode that he and his RITA Corporation was a the focal point of a drug investigation by the DEA.

Undersheriff Andrew Zinke giving Cal Skinner the finger at the 4th of July Parade in Crystal Lake, IL.

Zinke’s middle finger may cost Cal Skinner $5,000 After filing a valid ethics complaint against Undersheriff Andrew Zinke for using a government computer for his campaign, Cal Skinner was to face Zinke’s attorney Mark Gummerson. Gummerson was lobbying for a $5,000 fine against Skinner filing a valid complaint. An act of bulling and intimidation of a McHenry County citizen.

Local 150 International Union of Operating Engineers

Will McHenry County be Ripped Off by Special Interest in Sheriff Election? I question the interest and the contribution to Undersheriff Andrew Zinke’s campaign from the International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 150 election. I send a letter to the President-Business Manager of the union James M. Sweeney.

Local 150 International Union of Operating Engineers

IUOE Local 150 and Andrew Zinke. Is this Gangster Money for a Gangster Cop? The International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 150 contributes money to Undersheriff’s Andrew Zinke’s campaign. They have known ties to the Colombo and Gambino Crime Families.


Cal Skinner former McHenry County Treasure and State Representative and current editor of the mchenrycountyblog.com.

Undersheriff Andrew Zinke Shuts Down Cal Skinner’s Blog Site Undersheriff Andrew Zinke’s campaign was able to get Cal Skinner’s website, mchenrycountyblog.com shut down by falsely accusing him of stalking and linking to obscene material. Read here on how Zinke’s campaign resorts to breaking the law to silence a citizen’s voice.


Zinke-looking-right-eyes-at-cameraAndrew Zinke Fearful to Debate Bill Prim Lies to Get Out of It. Undersheriff Andrew Zinke is so fearful to debate Bill Prim for McHenry County Sheriff that he lies to get out of it. Zinke knows that he would be out matched, outwitted, and the truth of his corrupt character would be revealed to the citizens of McHenry County. Instead of enduring such damage to his campaign he lies to coward out of it.

Sheriff Keith Nygren

Is Sheriff Nygren and Undersheriff Zinke Intimidating and Tampering with Federal Witnesses? Is Sheriff Nygren and Undersheriff Zinke intimidating federal witnesses? Or are the deputies fighting back? Donald Leist, the sheriff’s in house lawyer sent a letter to 30 deputies and correctional officers to be interrogated prior to their depositions in a federal case. Would that work anywhere else in the US or just McHerny County?
