Mad Dog Tape Preservation, Analysis Under Way

Working diligently on these sensitive materials are Sgt. Ken Barton (CSP retired) and ESPN alumni / retired Auxiliary Trooper Dave Overson.

In May of 1960 "Mad Dog" Taborsky was executed in Connecticut. He and his accomplice Arthur Columbe murdered at least six people during a robbery and killing spree in 1956 and 1957.

Fast forward to today: The nephew of tireless investigator Major (then a detective) Sam Rome – who interviewed many in the Mad Dog case – came forth with some startling materials.

Ken Kurland delivered a scrapbook, newspaper clippings and reel to reel audio tapes of several of Sam Rome's interviews regarding this murder spree. They are being analyzed at the CSP Museum in a very exciting project. So stay tuned as they slowly process approximately 29 hours of tape.

Of note: The tapes might cover at least one other significant case.
