On the morning of October 15, 1995 a man at a hunting site camp on the Uncompahgre Plateau in Colorado heard a woman hysterically screaming for help. He ran to the scene to find 48 year old Bruce Dodson lying on the ground and apparently dead. He had been shot. His wife Janice was screaming and throwing around his orange hunting vest and asking her dead husband why he had taken off his orange vest. The story that would unfold was a complicated and strange romance involving greed, mental illness, and a gun that vanished into thin air.
