More Alvis Delk Hooterama-James Bishop a Murderer and Delk Accused of Making Fake Arrowheads

24 August 2008 at 11:46:36 PM

Heh. About that human footprint/dino footprint that Delk sold to Carl Baugh when Delk needed some money. Saw another article in the Mineral Wells Index that brings this while story into ludicrous territory. James Bishop was the other man who, along with Alvis Delk, found that dang stone in the first place.

Bishop admitted he was convicted in September 1970 of murder. In fact, according to Eastland County documents, he was convicted of murder “with malice and forethought” and sentenced to 55 years. Bishop said he served 17 years and was paroled. He emerged from prison in 1987.

And, for Alvis Delk, a couple of his neighbors told the Index that Delk used to make fake arrowheads and sell them as real.

Both individuals who spoke to the Index said when Delk - known growing up as “Chief” - was a teenager he was not only an avid hunter of arrowheads, he was a great maker of arrowheads, known as knapping. They said Delk would make arrowheads to appear authentic - including burying them in the ground for short periods - and sell them as real, including duping Seybold into thinking he was buying authentic Indian arrowheads. Both said Delk bragged about it.

And sure enough, Delk does say he made up fake arrowheads, although he differs on the details.

Delk said what actually happened is the late Seybold, as he awaited a new round of out-of-town or out-of-state guests to his ranch just northwest of Mineral Wells, he would ask Delk to make some arrowheads and throw them out along horseback riding trails to let them find, take home and use as conversation pieces, about the real Indian arrowheads they had found.

“He would say, 'Chief, make me up about 20 or 30. I want to give them to people.' I was making them for people coming out of Dallas or Fort Worth. They were people coming from all over, from Dallas, or Washington state.”

Yuh-huh. Both really credible witnesses, eh?
