In 1896 Albert Jennings Fountain, an attorney from Mesilla ( Las Cruces ) and his eight-year old son disappeared in White Sands, New Mexico. The wagon was found empty with blood stains on the sand....


Image result for empty wagon 1890s

Three men were charged with murder although no bodies were ever found....Albert B Fall, an attorney and rival of Albert Jennings Fountain, managed to get an acquittal from the three ranch hands ( and notorious rustlers ) who were implicated in the probable murder.....


Related image

Pat Garrett was the Sheriff who had arrested the three suspects.....this probably didn't go well with Albert B Fall, an attorney-rancher who was partners with another ranch that had employed the accused killers....

In 1908 Pat Garrett was shotgunned up in the Organ Mountains when he stepped down from a wagon to take a leak....obviously a set-up as the shooter was already in position....




Albert B. Fall.jpg


Albert B Fall, the attorney from the Fountain case, got an acquittal for the people charged with the murder of Pat Garrett.....the same men who had been charged in the Fountain case....



Later, Fall was appointed a Senator to the newly admitted State of New Mexico.....



.....Woodrow Wilson had the 17th Amendment passed removing State Governments from selecting Senators and turning the original Constitutional system into a State election.....In 1916 Albert Fall won the election as a Republican from New Mexico.....



Albert Fall became a member of the Washington In-Crowd and when Warren G Harding was elected President he became Secretary of the Interior....



Related image


While Secretary of the Interior, Albert Fall accepted a $100,000 pay off from the Sinclair brothers so that they didn't have to bid in order to drill for oil in the Teapot Field in Wyoming which belonged to the US Navy.....




After Harding's death the Teapot Dome Scandal broke and Albert Fall became the first Cabinet Member to ever go to prison.....
