THE DETECTIVE: Eduardo Pagan.
THE PLACE: Columbus, New Mexico.
THE CASE: Just before he died, a man gave his neighbors a most unusual gift: a watch fob commemorating Francisco “Pancho” Villa’s murderous raid on the border town of Columbus, New Mexico. The man said he was a boy when the raid happened in 1916, and he and his parents survived by hiding under a train car. The new owners want to know more about this watch fob. Who made it? Did their friend indeed witness this infamous raid? History Detectives’ new guest host, Eduardo Pagán, leads us on a history expedition that reveals an especially wild chapter of the American West.
