The Kane Shadow: The Louis "Gas" Derler Murder Mystery (Broadcast Date: July 28, 2018)
WINNER: Wisconsin Broadcasters Association Award, 1st Place, Best Live On-site Broadcast Remote
On August 1, 1930, Louis “Gas” Derler, owner of Gas’ Place in Trevor, and his bartender, Ed Dennesty, were shot. No one was ever arrested for the murders and Louis is buried in Salem at Liberty Cemetery on highway 83 just south of highway C. Gas’ Place has since become Towne Square and is once again run by Louis’ grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Our hero, the KANE SHADOW, a.k.a Orson Welles, who always likes a mystery, especially a local one, takes a stab at solving this unsolved crime. Although we use current names of locations, all of these places did exist back in the 30’s.
