Folks in Spearfish, S.D., were shocked when Gary Johnston was arrested in 1993. Police officers, sheriff's deputies, state troopers and FBI agents swooped down on the Ford dealership, guns drawn. They said Johnston, the mild-mannered service manager, was an escaped cop killer. Who could believe it? Johnston was too nice to be a murderer. People here had known Gary and his wife, Bobbie, for years. Surely it was a case of mistaken identity. But there was no mistake.
