8. Christine Thompson-August 4, 1973


​By 10:00 PM, Christine Thompson, who was twenty-nine, stared at Sheriff Reed Jenkins, Jr. "It's late, Hal. Can I go home?", she asked him. "Sure...", the Sheriff begun to say. Then they heard the wailing sirens. Suddenly Deputy Sheriff Ian Younger knocked on the door. "Sheriff, it's Hal. He's dead. There was a call from someone in town. A woman told 9-1-1 that a scarecrow killed him". Christine broke down. "No! Not Hal. No!​". She broke down into tears; she grabbed her blue purse, then headed outside of the old Sheriff's Office. "I'll take you home, Christine", the Sheriff said. And she nodded, as she got into the passenger's-side door, put her seat belt on.  Deputy Sheriff Younger headed into the back seat of the car. He put his seat belt on, then the Sheriff closed the door. He opened the driver's-side door, closed it, then he put his seat belt on. The sirens wailed in the late evening in Lawrence, Kansas, as the Sheriff arrived at the Thomson house.

It was ten-thirteen PM.


Hal's body was on the shattered glass. "Hal! Oh, God!", Christine said. She had long, black hair, brown eyes, and petite; she wore a blue dress. She was walking in her brown shoes. "Don't walk in the glass​", Sheriff Thompson said. And, as the house was cordoned off with yellow CRIME SCENE tape, the rest of the Kansas Police Department officers, (some were black; some were white), and some female officers, arrived in police cars. "Search the fields", Deputy Sheriff Younger ordered. As they gripped their .38 Smith & Wesson guns in their hands, they gasped in shock as they saw the scarecrow was in its place in the middle of the fields. It was as if it hadn't moved at all.
