Digging for evidence


As Ted Kergan looked for answers, he turned to Texas EquuSearch, meeting and befriending its founder, Tim Miller. Tim would become instrumental in both the search for evidence and in befriending and questioning Ronald Dunnagan, one of the suspects. Dunnagan was 36 years old and had worked as a casino barker and costumed clown before moving to Baton Rouge in November, 1984. Besides a couple of stints in Las Vegas, Dunnagan lived in North Louisiana until his re-arrest in 2012. For a time, Dunnagan was let go. It was during this period that Tim Miller got to know Dunnagan, even coaxing some critical facts from him.

While in Louisiana, Tim also headed up a Texas EquuSearch dig for evidence adjacent to the Mississippi River. Photos from that dig show Ted Kergan, pictured at left, top photo, and at right, in photo above.
