Hi, I'm Len McAuley! I'm a an older man (in my 60s), and I am happily married to a lovely woman named Daisy. I am a pretty tall guy, gaunt, really long legs, stoop-shouldered, shy and soft spoken. Some might consider me to be an alcoholic. You will often see me with a glass of whiskey in my hand. In Bentrock I was so well liked and respected that everyone was relieved when I quit drinking. I was deputy with Davids grandpa, and his dad. The two of us pretty much had control of Mercer County. We were known as the Hayden-McAuley team. When it came to cases that we had to deal with about Indians, I usually favored the side of Indians. Don't get me wrong, I'm a very fair man. I've always had a little soft spot for the Indians. When it comes to the debate about whether or not to remove the mascots from some teams, I feel that they should be removed and replaced with a team name that everyone can agree on. A name that isn't offensive to other people. I just like things to be fair for all. You could definitely consider me a part of the Hayden family. I was like a grandpa to David. When Uncle Frank was locked up in the basement and going insane, I came over to their house and stood outside with Davids mother, Gail, to protect her. I was holding a gun in his hand and it was pointed at the group of four men. I didn't fire, though. I would say I am a pretty good man at heart.
