It takes determination, it takes passion…but it also takes a little bit of luck. A lot of these cold cases…people sit at their desk and they’ll wait for that phone call to come in to crack the case. They’ll wait for that tip instead of getting off your ass and goin’ and knocking on doors…and that’s what needs to be done. You generate the lead. You don’t wait for the lead to come to you.

At 8:12 on the morning of April 30th, 1979, Pacific Power & Light worker Bob Gilbert was performing his daily ritual of raking the grates; he did so using a 20-foot long metal rake to remove any debris from the screening in front of the dam’s turbines. Bob was accustomed to pulling up leaves and dead fish during his raking, but on this day, he found something that would set in motion one of the biggest shocks of Bend, Oregon's short history. www.takenpodcast.com
