FARGO — William Hoehn admits he made a life-changing mistake on Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017. "I should've called police that night," he told The Forum on a recent evening from inside the Cass County Jail, where he awaits trial on charges of conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping and lying to police.

Shea opened his mailbox and pointed to a fading sticker inside that reads, "Greywind." "I knew I recognized that name from somewhere," he said.
