The Froggy Doo Kidnapping 40 years later

In 1966 Billings Montana a beloved childrens icon Froggy Doo was kidnapped and held for ransom.   This dastradly act eventually involved the FBI (and probably the CIA and KGB).  Today the perpetrators reveal themselves in the Billings Gazette

Billy McColley claims he and his brother Harold and Jerry Pearl were the doll-nappers.  Of course I have always heard that two other brothers were at least involved if not the masterminds of the crime. 

This was actually a big enough deal in 1960's Montana that a movie is being made out of it, "A Plumm Summer"
