The baby-sitter, it turns out, got it right.

The McHenry County sheriff’s office has concluded that a now-dead mob hit man named Larry Neumann, in all likelihood, killed two people in 1981 in the small town of Lakemoor — a long-cold case that was reopened last summer on the basis of a tip from Holly Hager, who baby-sat for the children of one of the pair back then.

Listen To Paul Scharff, Holly Hager, and Robert Freeman on Dennis Griffin’s Las Vegas and The Mob

On April 15 at 8pm CST, Paul Scharff, Holly Hager, and Robert Freeman appeared on Dennis Griffin’s Las Vegas and The Mob radio program on Blog Talk Radio. While the show had some technical difficulties, it wound up being a great conversation. Paul and Holly give background on the case and update us on the current happenings. Paul and Simon Barrett of Blogger News Network update us on the drop in officers covering the case over the last 4 months from 20 to 2. Robert Freeman and Simon Barrett give updates on conversations they’ve had with the McHenry County Sheriff.

Paul and Robert made it very clear – we need to get the word out. Larry Neumann should be named as the killer to give the families closure on this case – and the families would like to know what stopped the McHenry County Sheriff from closing this case sooner.
