CBSI to Air Murder Mystery Re-enactment

CBSI to Air Murder Mystery Re-enactment

Wyoming’s governor will take part as an actor in a live re-enactment of an age-old Wyoming “Whodunit?” mystery airing Thursday afternoon (Nov. 20) on numerous radio stations in the West, and through a Webcast at
Creative Broadcast Services Inc. is producing the show, and hopes more radio stations will express interest in picking up the broadcast.
Airing on the 100th anniversary of his execution, “The Hanging of Tom Horn” examines the events surrounding the death of a 14-year-old homesteader’s son, Willie Nickell, and the subsequent hanging of the accused, Tom Horn.
Whether Horn, who wore the hats of a lawman, hired killer and private detective, murdered the boy continues to be a topic of conversation in the Iron Mountain county of southeast Wyoming.
The re-enactment joins a list of similar programs from CBSI, such as “The Battle of Little Big Horn” and “The War of the Worlds.” The cast includes Wyoming Gov. Dave Freudenthal playing the part of Wyoming’s governor at the time of the murder, Fennimore Chatterton. Horn’s alcohol-induced confession to a deputy U.S. marshal is also of interest.
Jim Thompson of CBSI said the company hopes to continue producing content that is reminiscent of the “old-time radio… you’d sit and listen to as youngsters.”
Stations interested in syndicating this legend of a lawman gone bad can contact CBSI at (605) 722-2511 or send e-mail to [email protected].
