Stratton and Nancy were shown into the President's office. Stratton introduced to a man he called "Mr. Rod". Once a second man Clayton called Walter entered the room, the three men had a private conversation. Then the couple left and returned to their hotel.
The next day, they drove back to Port Angeles. During the journey, Stratton and Morrison got into an argument. The dispute continued after their arrival so Stratton left her at her apartment, where he was staying. Clayton took the dynamite he was storing there and informed Nancy he was going back to Vancouver.
We know what happened after that but if you forgot, refer to this entry.
When police searched the room Stratton was staying in, they found the dynamite in a paper bag. It was primed and rigged to be used as a bomb on a car's ignition system.
Two weeks after Stratton's death, Ed Lawson, the President of the Joint Teamster's Council received a threatening phone call. According to the anonymous caller, a bomb would be set off under Lawson's car.
So why did Clayton Stratton and his unknown accomplice - who was never identified - assault Strathie?
There are two theories. One is that Stratton and the other man were committing a robbery because they felt Strathie had money hidden in the house. The second possibility is that there was a contract put out on someone and the two men had gone to the wrong house.
After an inquest was held concerning Stratton's death, it was ruled a justifiable homicide.
I hope you find the beauty around you.
