What Would You Do
What would you do if you accidentally discovered evidence of the brutal murder of a family member committed over 60 years ago? Without any previous investigative experience, Great Falls native Dr. Clem C. Pellett initiated his own cold case investigation of his murdered grandfather, Clarence Pellett of Shelby. A year later, Dr. Pellett succeeded in bringing the killer to justice. The bad guy is once again in the slammer! According to Dr. Gail Belfert, Associate Professor of Criminal Justice at the University of Great Falls, Dr. Pellett will be making his FIRST Montana speaking presentation about his unique experiences on Tuesday evening, April 22nd, at 7 o’;clock in Providence Forum down at UGF. The program is FREE & open to the public. Special guests will be members of law enforcement & the judiciary. Dr. Pellett is a 1971 graduate of C.M. Russell High School in Great Falls & inspired by his successful quest tracking down the murderer of his grandfather, Dr. Pellett recently changed careers from dentistry to writing, public speaking & investigation. If you ask me, this is a “good thing”…it doesn’t hurt as much as dentistry! Following his presentation on the 22nd, Dr. Pellett will be signing copies of his book, “Dastardly”, a fictional account of this remarkable true story. I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again, “If there’s ANYTHING going on in north central Montana, somehow, someway, TV personality Norma Ashby is involved, & Norma will be joining me tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon at 4:30 on the Puffman Show to share details pertaining not only to Dr. Pellett’s “Dastardly” tome but also some pertinent information on the good doctor’s appearance in our area. Check out “Dastardly” at: www.clemcpellett.com. The Story is Fiction…The Evil is Real.” No, no, I’m not referring to Norma either…the book, the book! See you tomorrow at 4:30 with Norma Ashby for “The story-behind-the-story.
