The Blind Man's StoryThe Blind Man’s Story

Darrell Langskoff was a good employee and enjoyed working for the Forest Service. However, his pay grade wasn’t at a level to support his wife and six children quite the way he wanted.
But Langskoff was ambitious and willing to go the extra mile, if necessary, to afford a better life for himself and his family. Where he made his mistake was his decision to travel that extra mile down the wrong path.
Using his position with the Forest Service as a shield for drug smuggling paid well enough, but Langskoff was not prepared for the consequences when things broke bad – fatally bad.
