The Story of the Sportsmen’s Bar Stickup and Its Consequences
A few years ago I happened across an old, brief newspaper article that covered the robbery of a bar in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. The only reason it grabbed my attention was that one of the robbers was a Mrs. Catherine Hysell. All the other gang members had their ages mentioned. Catherine’s wasn’t. All were from Minneapolis – except for Catherine. She was from a place called Deer River. I scanned all my references on the family, but found none from Deer River. I put the article aside and forgot about it. Then came the “Pandemic Quarantine” and I had some free time on my hands to investigate. This is the story behind that article.
