True Crime-June 16, 2004



On June 13, Boise Police received reports of a theft having taken place at the On the Fly convenience store on West State Street. According to the store's owner, a uniquely styled male employee emptied the safe in the early morning hours before any other employees were present. The suspect, 6'4" tall and donning both a lengthy pony tale and a beefy Fu Manchu style moustache, then fled the scene on a on a bright yellow bicycle described as having a very large front tire--perhaps reminiscent of the oversized "Penny-farthing" bikes popular in Victorian England. Such a description narrowed the search quickly to Richard "Mac" Eiler, 40, who was arrested without incident following a brief police stakeout of his home. Eiler is charged with one count of Grand Theft.


Saturday, June 12 marked the 10-year anniversary of one of the most infamous unsolved crimes in American history: the brutal slaying of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman at the hands of an as of yet undisclosed killer. Police were alerted by barking dogs to the grisly scene, where the pair lay slashed to death outside of Brown Simpson's condominium. Hall of fame football running back Orenthal James Simpson, also known as OJ, "The Juice," and, according to Brown-Simpson's sister Denise Brown, "The devil walking around on Earth," was arrested and charged with the crime following a brief Bronco-roundup on a Los Angeles freeway. Simpson was acquitted of double murder, but later determined to be liable for the deaths in a civil trial. However, in a series of recent interviews commemorating the murders, 56-year-old Devil-Juice told the Associate Press that he blames "the media" for "convincing the American public that I am guilty." D.J. also said that he has finally given up his highly publicized pledge to search for the real killer of his wife because of the demands of raising two teenage children and funding their education on his paltry $25,000 per month NFL pension.

BSK + OSE = A city under siege

Boise Police are searching for information about the thugs responsible for spray painting the letters "BSK" or "OSE" on local buildings, signs and other inanimate objects. Officials believe that the suspects are merely "taggers" rather than full-fledged gangs, but the frequency of these brutal sprayings indicates a level of depravity that warrants a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to a conviction. Over 30 reports of three-letter graffiti have been reported in the last year, most recently on a building located at 5th and Front streets on the night of June 7. This last acrylic assault brings the grand total to just five short of the amount at which an official "Reign of Terror" is usually declared. One considered possibility for the meaning behind the cryptic letters is "Bedford Sewing and Knitting," a popular sewing machine manufacturer whose high quality stitchers create an almost maniacal loyalty among quilting and sewing circles. For "OSE," the suggestion has been voiced that Californian Congressman Doug Ose, leader of the movement to keep "Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance, has been using graffiti to create grassroots support for his conservative initiative.
