Chub and Sheriff Wayman- Part Nine
This is the final video clip from the last conversation between Chub and Sheriff Wayman and there was a lot going on behind the scenes that the two men didn’t know about. At the time this was supposed to be a secret meeting but an informant in the Osage County D.A.’s office alerted private investigator Gary Glanz to what was going on and told him that fresh evidence was being retrieved by the current sheriff’s office. Secret deals, offers of money and an operative in the D.A.’s office! George was unaware of all this and at 83, many years retired and 40 years after the murder, he was convinced that his theory of the murder was the only way it could have happened.
George urges Chub to come clean about the murder and promises him that he won’t spend any time in jail. He even tells him that I (Dale) can bring him in and take him home the same day.
Chub knows his health is failing and that he probably doesn’t have long to live. He listens politely to the old sheriff encouraging him to get right with God and says that he believes that the sheriff is being truthful and not trying to trick him. Afterwards however Chub told me what he really thought and over the next few weeks he told me the true story and gave me proof of what really happened on the night of September 26, 1970.
Next week I will be posting the beginning of Footsteps in the Dew: The Chub Anderson Story, the book I have spent the past four years writing with Chub’s cooperation and signed consent.
