Machine Gun Kelly & Yetis?

Posted by: Loren Coleman on October 16th, 2009

Learn how the July 1933 kidnapping by Machine Gun Kelly (above) of wealthy Oklahoma City oil tycoon & businessman Charles Urschel is directly tied into the future direction of the hunt for the Abominable Snowman during my talk on Saturday.

    Let me add a few extra (though strained) connections. –And Loren, these are perhaps “twilinght language” issues —

    I reside in Decatur, Texas. Decatur is the county seat of Wise County (and the source of the craps call for the roll of an “8”, “Eighter from Decatur, County Seat of Wise”). During the kidnapping, Mr. Urschel was held near Paradise, Texas, which is about 7 miles from Decatur, and also located here in Wise County. After his death, “Machine Gun” Kelley was buried in Cottondale, Texas, about 8 or 9 miles west of Paradise … and also in Wise County. About 8 or 9 miles east of Paradise, on the other hand, is the small town of Aurora, Texas … site of the infamous “Aurora spaceman” / windmill crash of the 1890s … and also in Wise County. Finally, about 30 miles southeast of Paradise lies Lake Worth, site of the “Lake Worth Goatman” sightings of the late 1960s.

    Never argue with a Yeti with a machine gun.
