TONY MAGGIORE "FOUND"
Antonio Maggiore, Jr.,- 13
years old, 1006 Milton ave., who
disappeared from his hqme ten
days ago, and who, according to
local papers, had at different
times been kidnaped, held for
ransom, killed, and thrown into
the Chicago river, walked smil
ingly into the Chicago avenue po
lice station today. With him
were two relatives,
The circumstances apparently
exploded these four sensational
Antonio himself said he had
not been kidnaped.
His relatives werev smiling
broadly. They didn't look like
people who had "given up" any

he got ready.

said .his body was thought to be
in the river.
And probably if Antonio had
stood on the. corner and called,
"Extra! Extra! AU about hiw I
am kidnaped and held for ran
som," probably some of the bright
Examiner sleuths who "discov

In view of all this, it would not
be astonishing to learn that his
poisoned brother Michael, whose
demise is now being investigated,
had died of stomacheache.
