The following is an transcription of the investigative report written by Caradori’s investigative partner, Karen Ormiston.

The document, titled “Investigative Report,”  was transcribed from a JPG image copy of the original document (which I believe was made public online by Nick Bryant, author of The Franklin Scandal).   I am transcribing these to HTML so that these pages may be indexed in Google’s search results, thereby allowing more people to find this information.  The original file can be seen here, and it should be noted that typos were copied as they appear in the original.

This writer then proceeded to Omaha, Nebraska, in order to meet with Wally Magnuss.  Upon arriving at the pre-arranged location, this writer conducted general conversation and then gave Wally the report to read.  After Wally read the report, he indicated that everything in the report was true and that he really didn’t have anything else to add.  I informed Wally that any information he could gain reference this investigation would be very helpful.  He stated that he was moving to Council Bluffs, Iowa, later this week, but that he would continue to cooperate with this writer.  I did ask Wally if he remembered a body guard which fits the description of Larry the Kid.  He stated that he was pretty sure that he did, and that he would be able to find out who this individual is.
