Wyoming shooting left two dead, robbers captured

A double murder in 1896 in Wyoming got regional attention, with headlines on the front page of the St. Paul Press. The victims in the crime in the early hours of Saturday, June 20, 1896, were the operator of a restaurant across from the railroad station and his nephew, gunned down during an armed robbery by a trio of highwaymen. Armed posses from the area took off in pursuit of the suspects, and early Sunday afternoon, June 21, subdued the two survivors after a short gunfight in a swamp north of North Branch. The final chapter in the saga was written nine months later when one of the captives was convicted of the two murders and hanged in the basement of the Chisago County Courthouse in Center City.

North Branch senior class speech by Quinn McDonough

Good Afternoon Members of the school board, Superintendent Paul, Principal McDonough, Assistant Principal Stevens, staff members, friends, families and graduates. Thank you all for being here today on this momentous occasion. As we all know, this past year we have lived amidst a global pandemic that has caused so many disruptions to life as we’d known it. The shutdown of the country, schools sending students home for long periods of time, restrictions of gatherings formal and not, and a plethora of health and safety issues. No matter who you are, you have been adversely impacted by Covid-19. Yet it’s in times like these when people, businesses and organizations can separate themselves by how they react to those circumstances.
