(What is also interesting in this story is the officer mentioned in this article as having approached Holmes is identified as an out of state officer, named Joshua Schiller. Why that is interesting is that Joshua Schiller is listed as an employee of the Nye County Sheriff's Department, and is also listed in the witnesses to be called by the Nye County District Attorney's Office in Pat's case. Additionally, in the yearly newspaper posting of the salaries of Nye County Employees - Joshua Schiller's name is listed there.)
