Special Agent Norman Fowler was shot and killed while guarding a freight shipment leaving from Fremont. His body was thrown from a moving freight train near Ames. His body was found at approximately 9:00 pm with a .45 caliber gunshot wound to the head and chest. Evidence inside the car indicated there had been a violent struggle. A suspect was arrested but released because of insufficient evidence.
