Last known witness in 40-year-old unsolved slaying dies Damon Chub Anderson died in November taking with him the answers to who killed millionaire rancher E.C. Mullendore. Although some say it was Anderson who killed Mullendore. The lifeless body was slumped on a living room couch. E.C. Mullendore III looked like a dirty rag doll, only it wasn't red earth from the millionaire rancher's spread that camouflaged his face. It was his blood, and lots of it, retired Osage County Sheriff George Wayman said. He suffered a bad beating and was shot, Wayman said. His whole skull was caved in. Even the wealthiest are not immune to tragedy, and Mullendore III's seemingly attractive life wasn't as charmed as it appeared. Upon his death, investigators found the Cross Bell Ranch was $11 million in debt, his marriage was spiraling and he was drinking heavily. Perpetuating the mystery, the rancher had taken out a $15 million life insurance policy a few weeks before he was killed. It was reported to be the largest policy written at that time on an individual in the United States. --- much more at http://newsok.com/last-known-witnes...ed-slaying-dies/article/3526542#ixzz19EzPyKdr Fascinating case - the one that got the ball rolling in terms of OK being thought of as a place where murders stay unsolved.
