on the national television show "Unsolved Mysteries" On April 6 1985 an unknown man ordered a pizza from Howard's Pizza and 23-year-old Morris Davis deli ered it to what turned out to be a vacant house The killer apparently broke into the back Of the house robbed Davis and then shot him repeatedly In a gruesome twist Davis' brother paramedic Cliff Davis answered the emergency call and found his brother's body at the house Police Detective A1 Redenbaugh said robbery appeared to be the motive If the motive was other than robbery Daviss mother and brother theorize that someone other than Morris Davis might have been the target such as another deliveryman "I think it was a case of mistaken identity" said his mother Delnita But Redenbaugh said police have no evidence of that yet Little progress was made in the case until 1988 when the gun used to kill Davis was found in a Great Falls pawn shop Authorities interviewed the gun owner an Oregon man but Redenbaugh said the gun owner passed a lie-detector test that he was not involved in the killing Davis family members say they wish police would interview the gun owner at greater length Redenbaugh said that "isn't out of the question" but questioned what that would accomplish "Its kind of a crazy case" Redenbaugh added The television program's produc- Bison bulls killed las activists watch ers agreed the case was unusual too following two years of lobbying by the Davis family to get the killing on the air Authorities can use any help the program can provide Redenbaugh said For the re-enactment producers hired a Spokane man to play the victim "When he put the glasses on and from a distance he looked exactly like Morris" his mother said "And that was hard" She said she tries not to get her hopes too high "I've been telling myself not to get excited about it but I am" Davis said "Unsolved Mysteries" has had good success rates for some of its stories but not in this area of unexplained death said David Rajter

before the cameras of three animal-rights activists near West Yellowstone Bill Haskins of Missoula one of the activists said the bison were shot about 11:30 am Sunday between Horse Butte and Rainbow Point The activists did not interfere and instead took pictures and observed the hunt "to see what tactics they're using" he said The bulls were each killed with one shot and the hunters were standing "no more than 30 yards away" from the animals Haskins said A total of 11 bulls have been killed in three hunts this season Bob Martinka regional director of the state Fish Wildlife and Parks Department confirmed that the two bulls had been shot The department is notifying the Gallatin County Sheriff's Department of all hunts and sheriffs deputies are accompanying hunters said Warden Capt Bud Hubbard Last March animal rights activists interrupted a buffalo hunt One person was arrested for interrupting a hunt and two activists were charged with misdemeanor assault Bison coming into Montana from Yellowstone National Park are hunted because the Yellowstone herds are infected with brucellosis which can cause cows to abort their calves Open burning ends HELENA (AP) Montana's open

inversions open burning is prohibited the bureau said The state bureau said people living in the counties of Butte-Silver Bow Cascade Lewis and Clark Lincoln Missoula and Yellowstone should contact
