Strahl, O'Hare Visited Sioux City Adult Bookstore

August 15, 2007, 1:21 PM by Matt Belanger

Strahl, O'Hare Visited Sioux City Adult Bookstore
Following a third day of testimony, we now have a better idea of how James Strahl and the 52-year-old Beresford man he’s accused of killing may have met. 

In court in Elk Point Wednesday, Marty Vermeer, a former employee of the Romantix Adult Emporium, an adult bookstore in Sioux City, testified O’Hare was a frequent customer. He said O’Hare would visit the bookstore looking for younger men. He also explained Stahl would occasionally visit the store, and at one point, Strahl had asked Vermeer if he knew of any older men who would pay money for sex. Vemeer also testified he and Strahl had intimate relations.

Strahl’s former fiancé also took the stand Wednesday morning. Tara Stuecker explained she and Strahl were engaged at the time when Strahl was first questioned by police in 2000. She said she often asked Strahl why he was being investigated. Stuecker said Strahl told her he did something “stupid when he was using drugs” and that police were trying to “set him up for something he didn’t do.” 

One of the prosecution’s key witnesses is expected to take the stand this afternoon. Aloysius Black Crow is the Union  County inmate Strahl reportedly told, in detail, about the crime. We have a crew in Elk Point and we’ll have the latest later today on KELOLAND.com and KELOLAND News.
