[ANCHOR TAG] On a quest to clear his grandfather's name, a Martinsville sheriff's deputy is experiencing close encouters of a spooky kind. In this week's Virginia Profile, News 7's Justin McLeod explains how a ghost put Dan Starrett on a mission.

[Runs= 14]
[OUT Q=had a glow to it]


Starrett had no idea who it was until two years later when his father died.
At the funeral, he saw a picture of his grandfather for the first time.
He looked exactly like that ghostly figure.
[SOT 15:10]
[IN Q=My grandfather had some unfinished]

[Runs= 10]
[OUT Q=take care of this]


That unfinished business goes back to 1917 when Walter Starrett worked as a railroad cop in Indiana.
On Christmas Eve, he attempted to throw out two drunks.
One pulled a knife and Starrett shot him to death.
[SOT 10:51]
[IN Q=When the word was circulated]

He was charged with murder.
But before he could have his day in court, Starrett was shot to death while chasing a suspect on the job.
But his name was never put on a national monument dedicated to law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty.
Starrett wondered why.

[IN Q=The reason he was turned]

((DAN STARRETT: THE REASON HE WAS TURNED DOWN BECAUSE HE HAD THIS MURDER CHARGE HANGING OVER HIS HEAD.))

So began a seven year journey to clear his grandfather's name.
Finally in 1999, Walter Starrett was added to the monument in Washington D.C.
Dan Starrett has since written a book about all this titled the father, the son, and the railroad ghost.

((DAN STARRETT: A LOT OF PEOPLE BELIEVE ME AND A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T. A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK I'M JUST CRAZY.))

[OUT Q=i'm just crazy]


That's because this ghost story has a spooky element to it, an important date that kept creeping up over the years.
April 17th is the day Dan Starrett saw the ghost, the day his father died, the day he discovered important information about the mystery, and the day he received proof of publication for his book.

New York City was host today to the annual Waiter's Race. As part of Bastille Day celebrations, New York City waiters raced down 60th street with trays of French champagne and two flutes. In the other hand they carried French and American flags. Dozens of waiters, outfitted in long white aprons, took part in the race. (------------) This marks the fourth year for the race.
