Morning Poll: Do You Believe Pinal County Sheriff's Deputy Louie Puroll's Story?
In New Times' feature this week, Pinalchio, we examine the shooting of Pinal County Sheriff's Deputy Louie Puroll.
Puroll claims he was shot by a group of Latino or Native American (he couldn't tell) drug smugglers in the desert just west of Casa Grande.
The shooting fueled the immigration debate, thrust Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu into the national spotlight, and made Puroll an instant hero.
One problem: after dissecting Puroll's account of what happened, and talking with a number of renowned forensic pathologists, the story doesn't add up.
