I am looking for any detailed information on this case. I saw on the news it was being reopened, however the only information I can find is the 2002 Article win The Olean Times Herald.. with barely any information. If anyone has anything please post.

I was 12 years old and remember this very clearly. My brother worked at Ski wing. We were there the night it happened. He was cleaning skiis before we left. Had i not complained about going home we probably would have been there still. Hard to tell. I can remember seeing the bullet holes in the door casing where the one person was trying to escape. i can remember the office and the safe being gone. the blood on the snow. I spent everyday at ski wing those were the best days. I remember alot about it and the thoughts on it. you could email at [email protected]

What a tragic history Grosstal aka Wing Hollow and Ski Wing had. Someone in another thread wanted to know about the chairlift roll-back that killed a young boy there. I found an article about it. I will leave a link. Does anyone know why or how the brakes failed?

I just got lucky. It actually took 3 days for me to find it on Google. I lived in Chautauqua County when it happened and remember it well. Someone asked about it and like I said I just got lucky.

There are way to many unsolved murders for Olean, a small area. Ever look at the demographics... they list aproximately a few Violent crimes in a 10 year period.... an absolute lie but the truth cant be hid forever.
Good luck Mountain.

Just found this article: MARCH 10,1978 Safe stolen from resort recovered.In what they call their "first major break" in the investigation of the murders of 2 ski resort employees,NYS Troopers say they have recovered a safe stolen from the resort.Stephen Bender and Michael Forness were fatally shot FEB. 6 when they surprised early-morning burglars who escaped with $18,000 from the wing hollow ski resort. Police found the safe in about 4 feet of water in the nearby Allegany River.The safe weighs about 130/180,"can't read the article" and a triangular hole had been drilled into it apparently so the money and checks inside could be removed.The safe will be shipped to the Stae Crime Lab for test,police said.

You guys are getting this stuff from google? I am having a heck of a time finding barely anything from the olean area in google. I noticed that unless he is on here.. dets from there arnt doing alot. All sites i can find have listings for missing [persons and unsolved cases, but cattaraugus county, olean allegany area is pretty slim. Noticing people from the area arent helpful either.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
