Are you talking about "Flight From Justice"? If so, that's been out for several years. I've seen it a few times and it's pretty good account of McCoy's hijacking and subsequent escape from prison and his ultimate death.

Yes its about the escape.  I have seen the story in a series about prison escapes before.  Not easy to bust out of Lewisburg.   This was the first successful one since 1953 they say.  And it was Richard McCoy.  I think that trucks have been used in other escapes to bust through gates.    This one is nuts.  Rifle bullets hitting the truck and all.  They were pretty good at it but someone made him and that was it. I think he knew he would die reaching for his gun.  He did not want to go back to prison

After a substantial delay, the Army CoE finally fulfilled my FOIA request for information pertaining to dredge operations between 1971 and 1980.

I have spent the better part of two days reviewing the files. So far, there is nothing too illuminating.

For reference, the name that the Corps gives to the area of Tena Bar is Willow Bar. As we know, in 1974 dredge spoils were deposited  at Tena Bar. Interestingly, dredge spoils were also deposited on the Oregon side of the Columbia directly across from Tena Bar during this same 1974 dredge operation. If the money arrived via dredge, then it’s possible that there could be some evidence such as money shards or bag debris at that location.

I will post some photos and more information in a bit.

Old-old news. This has been repeated a million times.

# DREDGING REPORT- MR BECHLY: Date:  Feb. 13, 1980

Mr. BECHLY, after a review of his records, advised that the only dredging operation in the vicinity of the Fazio Brothers’ Pan between November 24, 1971 and the present, was from August 6 1974 through September 18, 1974.
Material dredged from the river channel in the Columbia River was placed in several locations on or near the FAZIO Brothers’ Farm as wall as one location across the river on the Oregon side.
The dredge material deposited at the site where the money was located came from the north ‘half.of the ship channel, which is 300 feet wide, between river mile 96 plus 38 feet and river mile 97 plus 17 feet. This material was deposited on the beach area of the FAZIO Brothers’ Farm between August 19 through the 25th, 1974, ‘and consisted of 91,100 cubic yards of fill.

see photos attached.  :rofl:

Chaucer:
Agree, georger. Like I said, nothing illuminating.

I was going to post some interesting photos, but with the site seemingly on the way out, I don't see the point.
