[IN Q=When the word was circulated]

((DAN STARRETT: WHEN THE WORD WAS CIRCULATED THROUGH TOWN THAT MY GRANDFATHER HAD KILLED ONE OF THE FINER DRUNKS, FINER CITIZENS, THEY FORMED A LYNCH MOB. THEY WAS GOING TO LYNCH HIM.))
[Runs= 11]
[OUT Q=going to lynch him]


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.
[SOT 7:54]
[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.))
[Runs= 05]
[OUT Q=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.
[SOT 17:01]
[IN Q=A lot of people believe me]

((DAN STARRETT: A LOT OF PEOPLE BELIEVE ME AND A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T. A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK I'M JUST CRAZY.))
[Runs= 03]
[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.
