Hunter S. Thompson‘s widow, Anita, has returned a pair of elk antlers that her late partner stole from Ernest Hemingway’s estate in 1964.
Thompson lifted the pair of antlers from Hemingway’s home in Ketchum, Idaho when he was on assignment for the National Observer. Hemingway was not alive at the time of the theft: he had committed suicide in the home in 1961. The Aspen Times posted about the news on its Instagram account. Check it out:
Hunter S. Thompson’s widow, Anita (second to left), returned a pair of stolen elk antlers to the home of Ernest Hemingway in Ketchum, Idaho last week. The late writer stole the antlers from Hemingway’s home while on assignment for the National Observer in 1964. The antlers have hung at the Thompson’s Owl Farm home in Woody Creek for the last 52 years. “Hunter later regretted this,” Anita wrote in an e-mail Sunday. “Hunter and I planned to take a road trip back to Ketchum and quietly return them. But we never did.” • #aspen #aspentimes #pitkincounty #colorado #local #news #hunterthompson #owlfarm #woodycreek #gonzo #journalism #ernesthemingway #literature #ketchum #idaho @natobserver
