On October 30, 1993, Brian Dietrich of rural Garnavillo, IA — the son of [then] Clayton County Sheriff Verdean Dietrich — made a trip across the Mississippi River to Prairie du Chien, Wis., to hang out at the Schooner Bar with his girlfriend and her brothers. At some point during the evening, one of the brothers struck Dietrich after a scuffle. The 30-year-old Dietrich headed home, walking toward the bridge connecting Prairie du Chien with Clayton County, Iowa, but never made it. On Memorial Day weekend, 1994, a seasonal cabin dweller on the Mississippi River’s Indian Isle discovered Dietrich’s body washed up on the shore, still fully clothed and lying face down in the sand.

    What about Richard Bond Homicide

    • Jody Ewing says:

      Dana, I’d read that Richard Bond’s autopsy reportedly indicated a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but I’ve contacted Sheriff Tschirgi asking for confirmation as to whether the death was ruled a suicide or homicide. Will get back to you once I hear from his office. All best, Jody

        I dont think youll find any answers there. Other than clayton county having the most corrupt police force ive ever dealt with, there have NEVER, not even once solved one homicide, so being as they have no concience nor one entire working brain between the 100+ people working there, they find it much easier to just leave things as they are, and go for donuts and a cup of coffee. Dont take my word for it though, please let me know me know what becomes of your inquiry. I notice this post hasnt been added to since Feb. 15th though. . .
