Bradley’s Barn is an abandoned barn south of Sandpoint along the banks of Cougar Creek.
Sheriff Hemlock explained that two days before the murders at the Lumber Mill, he and his men were assaulted by a deranged man near the barn. The man was obviously sick and insane, his flesh fevered, eyes wild, mouth frothing, and clothes caked with blood. The guards subdued him, but when they checked inside the barn they discovered the mutilated bodies of three men. Although all three bodies were far too disfigured to identify, one of them carried a piece of parchment.
The note identified the bodies as Tareh Mortwell, Lenner Hask and Gedwin Tabe, three notorious con men and swindlers known well to Sheriff Hemlock as local troublemakers.
He personally forbade the three men from operating their con games and barely legal operations in Sandpoint and wasn’t particularly surprised at the time to find them murdered – it was only a matter of time before they tried to swindle someone worse than them, after all. But in light of the mill murders and the note, Sheriff Hemlock believes these murders are related.
