THE MULLENDORE MURDER CASE
I forgot to say that when we lived on the ranch Gene Mullendore did not allow anyone to go into Bartlesville with any vehicles that might identify them as being from the Cross Bell Ranch, and workers were encouraged not to disclose where they worked. The trucks could be used to go to Pawhuska, Fairfax, and other places, but Bartlesville was off limits. I never knew the reason why Gene felt it was dangerous for workers to go there.

I lived on the Mullendore Ranch for close to three years. We lived in Hulah, and everything in the town was owned by Gene, other than a house next to us where the Briggs family lived, and another house on the opposite side of the rode where the Shook family lived. The Shooks did not like the Mullendore's and I guess it went both ways. We all went to Brown school which was in Hulah, Mrs. West was the teacher, her husband was an engineer at Hulah lake. Kathleen came to everything the school had going on. She always provided the meat for dinners and the familys brought all the other foods. She came to our plays and our competitions and acted so proud when Brown school took honors. My dad and my brother both worked on the ranch. My mother loved living there and I did too, all the kids got along really well and we wander all over without fear. Eventually my brother went to live in the bunk house on the ranch. Gene liked him alot and he liked Gene even though he was often amazed by some of his tantrums. They never had any problems. He went a few places with EC, whom he said drove very fast. My brother said Gene should have sent EC to Stillwater to learn ranch management instead of to OU. Once when my brother still lived with us someone was banging on our door in the night and it turned out to be Gene. He said EC had called in from Pawhuska,as he was to do before he left any place, but hadn't shown up at home even though they allowed extra time for him to get there. Gene had managed to drive his jeep to get my brother. They went searching but did not find EC until the next morning when his car with him injured inside was found over an embankment. Gene loved EC, everyone knew that as factual, however, he and Kathleen were worried about his safety and afraid someone would harm him even back then. We thought it was some of the big rival ranchers he feared. Gene would get mad at everyone in the home at times and they would all leave for awhile to let him cool down.I thought Katsy was away at a school in Mississippi,I could be wrong. I never met her but my brother said she was very beautiful. My brother told me Gene and Kathleen were not happy EC was stuck on Linda, and later married her, but we were gone by that time. I think if EC was beaten and shot that is a very telling fact. Gene would never have allowed his son to be beaten. Now, here is my argument why Gene did not have his son murdered. He had turned the operations over to EC, however, he could still have have hired a financial manager for the ranch anytime he so desired. I am sure Gene was upset with the debt but he had love for and faith in EC to stablize the situation. If not, it was going to be EC who was without a ranch, he and Kathleen were old and wouldn't be around too long. Gene let EC do what he thought best even as the business went down the tubes. I think Katsy and her husband had plenty.Then I recently read all the court documents (with Gene Stipe, Howard Edmondson, and others as the attorneys, and learned what each had to gain from EC's death. Gene and Kathleen were old and hardly capable of bringing the ranch back to being solvent. But the most telling thing is who gave away the most. That would be Linda. She inherited the 15 million dollar life insurance, much of the land, and other things as well, and she dealt it all away to Kathleen and Katsy for about 7 million dollars. She could have kept everything. She disliked the parents, so why did she deal herself out of full ownership and great wealth? Maybe the beating of EC would provide an answer, who hated him, well, Linda, who probably knew at once, maybe by being told, the name of the killer(s)? I suspect that was the Mullendore parents who rather than have EC's children know their mother had their father killed and cause more upheavel and heartache allowed the killer to go free after losing most of what was rightfully her's. Who would ever give up rights to land and money that was left to them without much of a fight unless that was someone who when charged with murder could not inherit anything. Well, that someone would be Linda.

I'm remembering a case where the wife of a Grand Jury member went to start the car and was killed. I just don't remember if it was the Mullendore case. Any input would be appreciated.

You are thinking of a different case involving some charcters from this area. The bombing you speak of happened in Stroud.Tom Pugh Rex Brimley and Al McDonald all went to jail over it and a botched bombing of a Judge in Tulsa. But there is somewhat of a shadow to the Mullendore murder.

In 1971 Garland Rex Brinlee Jr killed Bristow school teacher Fern Bolding with a car bomb intended for her husband Donald Bolding. Bolding was a witness scheduled to tesify against Brinlee in an auto theft case. He passed away last year in prison. By all accounts he was a mean SOB. Meaner than Chub which is saying something.

Thomas Pugh and Albert Macdonald were involved in the bombing of a judge and the murder of "the bootleg queen" Cleo Epps in 1970. Epps was going to testify against them for the bombing of the judge. All of these characters would be worthy of a thread unto themselves.

While there is much speculation, theories and rumors on the Mullendore case the only physical evidence I am aware of points square at Chub.

Link to Dale Lewis's website, where he is posting a series of interviews between Sheriff Wayman and Chub Anderson.

In case anyone is interested I have just listed for sale on ebay an older Billy Cook Greenville, TX roping saddle that we purchased directly from Chub Anderson aka Jack Evert on Sept 15, 2005 when he lived in Alder, MT just 8 months before he was captured and sent back to Kansas. We have significant documentation including a reciept signed by 'Jack' that verifies that this saddle was indeed Chub's personal saddle that he sold to us. Please check it all out at Ebay Link

Dale Lewis, (Buffalo Dale) has a book out, "Footprints in the Dew" that pretty much settles what happened. I have no affiliation with Dale, but I have read the book. He was likely Chub Anderson's closest confidant, up to his final days. If you have an interest in this case, his books pretty much settles things.

I bought and read the book; very interesting. The author spent a lot of time in research. He does leave the door open as to who shot ECIII. He would have us believe that it was a crime of passion and seems to credit "Chub" with the kill although he seems to imply that another person--"Lonnie"--may have been directly involved. Read and decide for yourself.
