Checkpoint Author Visits The Faust Hotel

There's quite a lot of history to be found in the small towns outside of San Antonio. One of these gems happens to be The Faust Hotel & Brewing Company located just 15 minutes from my house, right up I35 North, in the town of New Braunfels, Texas.

Mondays are usually so dull, but my friend Carmen was off work, and we decided to head on over to The Faust for dinner. I found it online when checking for good places to scarf down some German food, and when I saw the name of it, I knew we had to go there. As many of you know, one of my engaging Checkpoint series characters shares the same last name, Herman Faust, the dry-witted Direktor of the Landeskriminalamt (LKA). I felt it was a sign, one that screamed "Come here!"

Off we gals went, enjoying great conversation on the way. The Faust sits on S. Seguin Ave. near the historic downtown region of New Braunfels. Out front of this four-story hotel is a bubbling fountain that is part of the front-facing wall. The night desk …

Article by Ted Quinn
Metrocom Tribune 

The city of Marion, Texas, located four miles northeast of Randolph Air Force Base, has a secret. Missing Persons cases that date back fifty years and number into the thousands! These cases remain unsolved to this day, and the number continue to rise with the recent case of Justice Edwards, age 55, who went missing November 3rd. When questioned about the obscenely high number of missing persons, and whether the city even cared anymore to solve them, Mayor Thaddeus Bryant replied, "These are our people. You know as well as I do that this is an ongoing investigation, and because of that, neither myself nor the the chief of police can reveal any details. As soon as we know something concrete, we'll be happy to give your paper a statement."

Once again, Mayor Bryant has side-stepped the issue, refusing to comment on the recent missing persons cases or even the cold cases that are more than ten, twenty, thirty, forty, and fifty years old,…
