It's sad to say, but I don't think so. I have called the ATF and Rangers to try to get them to Cold Case it. Don't think it worked.
I had a lot of respect for Daryl.

Hard to believe it's been over 21 years now. Although I'd really like to see it solved, I think that a big problem in looking in to it as a cold case, is that you would have to devote an entire "team" to investigate it due to the sheer volume of evidence, witnesses, suspects etc.

I don't think that it's something that just one or two Investigators could do on their own. I can see an agency following up on leads as they come in, and I'm sure that they are few and far between after all these years, but to go back and look at everything from day one as a cold case, would require a whole lot of time and manpower.

Not saying that it's not worth it, just not sure that any agency would be willing to do it.

The bomging of Walsh Lumpkin president Daryl Crouch on State Line back in 1987.
Here's a link to an old article.

http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html...

Went ahead and copied and pasted the article just in case the link didn't work.

INQUIRY IN TEXAS BOMB KILLING
February 5, 1987

LEAD: The investigation into the bombing death of the president of a drug company is being treated as a top priority, but no leads or suspects have been found, the authorities said today.

The investigation into the bombing death of the president of a drug company is being treated as a top priority, but no leads or suspects have been found, the authorities said today.

The victim, Daryl Crouch, president of the Walsh-Lumpkin Drug Company, was killed Monday night when an explosion ripped through his Mercedes-Benz sports coupe when he tried to start it. His wife and daughter were injured in the blast outside the company's offices.

The authorities said today that the explosion was caused by pipe bomb, placed on the driver's side of the vehicle. The type of triggering device used to set off the bomb has not been determined, they said.

Cummins Beaty, special agent in charge of the Dallas office of the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, said the case was a ''top national priority'' for Federal agents.

Fourteen agents from Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas are taking part in the investigation, he said.

Mr. Crouch's wife, Jan, was hospitalized briefly for burns she suffered when she tried to pull her 36-year-old husband from the burning automobile.

The couple's 10-year-old daughter, Sandy, was thrown from the car by the blast and suffered burns on her face, hands and back. She was reported in good condition today at a hospital.

Earl Cox, a spokesman for the city police, said,''We still have no leads and are appealing to the public for help,''

Ron Gray, a spokesman for Walsh-Lumpkin, said all of Mr. Crouch's businesses were operating in the black.

Residents in this normally quiet border city were shaken.''This kind of thing just doesn't happen here,'' Mr. Cox said.

It is a shame this case was not solved.

Was Howard Dunnam involved in any part of the investigation?
If so I have reservations why the case went cold.

There was a lot of BS about investigating the case.
But that is all it was, just BS.
The ATF, and DEA had all the info they needed in the Rich drugs cases but they chose not to do their jobs.
Just allow people to die.
Just like the punk Randy Lee who allowed it all to continue.
No I don't think the case was properly investigated.
I have never seen anything good come from the ATF,DEA, or TX Rangers in this state.

I would think this case has everything to do with drugs.

Case has nothing to do with drugs.

Lead agency is/was ATF with FBI and Texas PD.

Lead does not mean the incompetent Howard wasn't involved!
ATF along with FBI along with the APD, CCSO, DEA, and many can be do nothing people.

I'm sure the sucker Howard Dunnam, I mean ranger danger would love any brownie point he can get though!

Howard was not stationed in this area when this happened. He did come here until 88.
