Authorities investigating 1970 murder question man arrested in Helena

Posted: Updated:

COWETA, Okla. (AP) - Murder investigators from Oklahoma say they expect more interviews over the next few weeks, with a man arrested in Helena.      

No one has been charged in the death of millionaire rancher E-C Mullendore the Third, beaten and shot in 1970 at his home near Hulah, Oklahoma.      

Sixty-four-year-old Damon "Chub" Anderson used to be Mullendore's bodyguard and ranch hand. Anderson was arrested a couple of weeks ago in Helena, after authorities said he used the name of a dead man, when seeking Social Security benefits. Anderson had been living in the southwestern Montana community of Alder.      

After his arrest he was returned to Kansas, to face drug charges. Anderson pleaded no contest to those charges Wednesday.      

The undersheriff for Osage County, Oklahoma, says initial talks built some rapport between Anderson and the murder investigators.
