It was 1940 in this lakeside community of Waterville Minnesota - all eyes were on World War II and the Depression.  Families were struggling to make ends meet.  The fishing business in southern Minnesota was one of the few industries helping to keep this small community a float during these tough times, providing food and jobs for the locals.  Unfortunately, this kind of stress and pressure has it's breaking point, and in the end resulted in the brutal murder of three Game Wardens.  Not three, but four men dead during this case on a warm summer afternoon in this normally quiet community.  The deadliest day in Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) history.
