LETTER: Benda death warrants investigation, answers

To the Editor:

Bob Mercer’s article left a lot of big questions unanswered. The Daily Republic would do well to launch its own investigation to answer the questions begged by his incomplete account, such as, how many permanent visas at $500,000 per were issued to the Korean and Chinese investors, who received permanent visas for the money? Did Richard Benda die from a gunshot delivered by his own hand, or by someone else? This whole story stinks of crime and greed. The people of South Dakota deserve complete and truthful answers.
