Danny Newville – A request from the Sheriff’s Office

I was contacted by Detective Kent Bauman from the Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office last week. Since I started writing about Danny’s story on my blog, they received an anonymous letter that they would like to follow-up on. Unfortunately, they can’t because it’s anonymous.

Detective Bauman asked if I would let the author of this letter know that they are very interested in speaking to him/her in order to get a few more details. He requested that this person please contact him between 8am-4pm, Monday through Friday, at 320-214-6700, extension 3315. And, he wanted to assure this person that he/she could remain anonymous. They will absolutely honor and respect that request.

Beyond that, I have heard from a lot of people over the past few weeks… so much so that my head is spinning from all the details. There are conflicting reports of what may have happened to Danny, so it’s hard to distinguish rumors from fact.

Here’s the short list of what I’ve heard.

  • He was killed at a party.
  • There was no party.
  • He left town and moved to a different state.
  • He was hit in the head with a baseball bat.
  • He was hit in the head with a shovel.
  • He was given bad drugs.
  • He was buried with a backhoe.
  • He was buried at a construction site.
  • He was buried in someone’s back yard.
  • He was buried in a bog.

It goes on and on. At the end of the day, I have no idea what happened to Danny Newville, but someone does. If you are that someone, please take a moment to reach out to Detective Kent Bauman at the Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office. Even if you feel your information is insignificant, please take the time to reach out anyway. They can make that determination on their end.
