Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
State Finance Director, Hale Champion along with his wife Marie, and 19-month-old daughter, Katherine Marie, were kidnapped from their South Land Park home at gunpoint on the night of July 7, 1965. Their ordeal ended two days later, at 3:37 a.m., when two California highway patrolmen spotted the fugitives near the Benton Agricultural Inspection Station on the California-Nevada state line. The fugitives, Carl Cletes Bowles and Wilbur Marion Grey, wanted in Oregon on suspicion or murder, bank robbery and rape, surrendered to the California lawmen without resistance.
Photograph caption dated July 9, 1965 reads, "Brown worried - Gov. Edmund G. Brown, right, reads the Valley Times extra on the disappearance of Finance Director Hale Champion with political writer Phil Hanna. Brown said "the Champions are my closest friends in Sacramento." The governor was in Burbank for the taping of a television show on the progress of state government."
