POLLY'S Column

Missour River Country has published another free Outlaw News. I have an article about Vern Severns in the news. Vern Lived on Shade Creek in the 20's and it was assumed he was responsible for five murders and hiding in northern McCone County. He did work in Circle, Glendive and then Butte. He was recognized from a True Detective in Butte where he was put in jail and then took a pill (probably cyanide) that he always carried with him.
