You are so right and observant. The Model 94 Marlin belonged to A.V. Elmer, his third victim. Tornow's gun was a Model 95 30 carbine U.S. Army.
The phamplet states that he had a Model 94 Marlin lever action in his hands.The gun in the photos is a Winchester, Model 95 , carbine. Likely 30. cal army.
Very interesting. I love learning about history :) Great job!!
Where is the Bauer House located at?
Take Brady-Matlock Rd. about 2 miles past the homestead, turn left on West Boundary CUTOFF to a T, go across the road and down a driveway. 2nd house.
How do you get to the old homestead?
The Tornow homestead is about 9 miles up the Brady-Matlock Road on the left side. But the only existing structure is a small shed in the back.
Loved the ceremony last month. We were impressed with the site itself, the new monument and the organization it must have taken to put together. Great website.
my grandmother knew this family.....
I researched the case for years. I really have no idea, exactly what happened. My grandfather knew John, said he was the best shot he ever seen.
