Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Ohio Inspector General Cites 18 Wildlife Officers For Hunting
The state watchdog has referred 18 more Ohio wildlife officers for possible criminal prosecution after a follow-up investigation into illegal hunting while on duty uncovered additional cases across the state.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources said Friday it immediately would place 17 officers on administrative duty and remove their law enforcement powers pending an internal investigation. The 18th officer, a supervisor, has retired.
Inspector General Randall Meyer found in comparing deer harvest and payroll records that the officers had either hunted while on duty, or they were off duty and had falsified payroll records to collect pay for hours not worked.
Meyer launched the probe after an earlier investigation resulted in the conviction of two Brown County officers. He said he suspected it was more than an isolated incident.
