Author, David Reichenbaugh, Lt. Retired, Maryland State Police will help open the new Myersville Maryland Branch of the Frederick County Public Library system on Saturday September 7th, 2019 at 2PM for a book event and book signing.
The author of In Pursuit the Hunt for the Beltway Snipers, will return to Myersville 18 years after he, along with Troopers under his command brought the 23 day bloody rampage of the Beltway Snipers to an end. The Snipers who spent 23 days in October 2002 terrorizing the DMV (District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia) by randomly shooting unsuspecting citizens who were going about their daily routines. Before Reichenbaugh and his team were able to track the snipers down to the rest area in Myersvlle Maryland, they had taken the lives of 10 citizens and wounded 4 more. Their arrest culminated the largest most intense man hunt in American Law Enforcement History. Coming a year removed from 911 the snipers brought the nations capitol and the surrounding area to a stand still with citizens fearing for their lives.
Reichenbaugh will give a presentation followed by a book signing at the brand new Public Library slated to open August 24th. This promises to be an emotional event for both the author and the local citizens who lived through the events only to wake that morning to their streets full of Police vehicles and the news that the 2 most wanted killers had been tracked down to their small western Maryland Town.
The author will answer any questions and looks forward to sharing his experience and hear from the citizens and share their emotions as they recall those deadly days in October 2002. The new Library is located on Harp Road in Myersville Maryland.
