Garrett participated in the original “Train Deaths” episode of “Unsolved Mysteries” along with Dan Harmon as the primary spokesman. Linda Ives did not know at this time that Harmon and Garrett were involved in the murders and were masterminding a heinous cover-up to protect the evidence of their involvement, so she gladly participated in the episode. In reality, Harmon and Garrett were in the ideal position of control, including access to callers on the “tips line” set up by “Unsolved Mysteries.” All caller information was given to Harmon and Garrett, who pretended to investigate, but instead responded with violent threats to callers with information damaging to them.
Months later, Linda learned that Harmon was actually on the tracks with the boys the night they were murdered and was a likely participant in the murders. She warned the producers of the “Unsolved Mysteries,” and they were willing to make necessary changes if the FBI would endorse the corrections, but the FBI would not. At the time, Linda and Jean thought that the FBI was conducting a forthright investigation, and did not want to jeopardize their case, but as it turned out, they conducted the most shameless cover-up of all, which ended all official investigations.

It’s difficult to believe the depth and reach of the cover-up, but the evidence presented throughout this website leaves little doubt of the absolute validity of this realization.
Attorney Richard Garrett was Dan Harmon’s side-kick, his right-hand-man, his lap-dog, his shadow, his yes-man. Get the picture? If Dan Harmon was involved, Richard Garrett was involved.
Garrett was also Harmon’s assistant when Harmon headed the county grand jury investigation of the train deaths. Garrett was always Harmon’s deputy when Harmon was the district’s prosecutor. According to a U.S. Attorney inner-office memo, Dan Harmon and Richard Garrett were primary targets of the 1990 federal grand jury investigation of public official corruption in Saline County. When U.S. Attorney Chuck Banks cleared Dan Harmon of any wrong-doing, he also cleared Garrett
