City Confidential: Fairbanks - Mining for Murder [DVD]

Cardmember Offers



Fairbanks, AK, prides itself on its undeclared autonomy and one of its biggest supporters was Joe Vogler. After moving to the northern state in 1942, Vogler quickly became active in local politics, eventually forming the Alaska Independence Party. But, not everyone shared the town's enthusiasm for the outspoken leader. Manfried West made Fairbanks his second home beginning in 1980. The former convict and Vogler became friends due to their similar hatred of oppressive government. But when Vogler went missing in 1993, the police targeted West from the start. An arrest came only 17 months later after West burned down his own house and issued a partial confession. A&E documents the bizarre details of the death of a hero in this one-hour program. ~ Sarah Ing
