FBI solves 50-year-old cold case of missing Dodge City history





Authorities broke a cold case that involves the history of cow town exploits of Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson, the FBI said Thursday.

A stolen Dodge City police docket ledger for 1878 to 1882 — missing since the 1950s — has been found in Ohio, they reported.

Federal prosecutors on Wednesday filed a civil lawsuit in Topeka to take possession of the large historic book. How it disappeared remains a mystery, but court records list recent travels that almost ended in public auction.
