head five times and must have
been instantly killed.
Buonnonomo, James Mattio
and Frank Piscella were arrested
today. Buonnonomo confessed
after a third degree sweating.
The other two are expected to
confess.
When the girl's body was
searched the card of Mrs. Alice
Phillips Aldrich of the Chicago
Law and Order Leageu was
found in her pocket.
This led thei police of Bridge
port to believe that the girl had
been concerned in the Jack John
son white slaving scandal at Chi
cago. This suspicion was further con
firmed by the confession of Buon
nonomo. Buonnonomo first said that the
girl was his wife. Later he ad
mitted that this was not so and
said that she was his sweetheart.
Then he said that he and the
girl had only recently come from
Chicago, and that while there
they had lived at 101 .West

on a lonely stretch of road along
side the Putney cemetery, i be
tween Stratford and Shelton,
Conn.
Buonnonomo and four other

here last night. They decoyed
the girl into'a taxicab.
The five men told the taxi

Stratford, they told him to drive
on to Paradise Green. At Para
dise Green they told him to keep
on going.
Then the lonely stretch of road
opposite the cemetery-was reach
ed. The men and the girl climbed
out. The taxi driver was told to
"drive up the road a bit."
The driver did so. Five min
utes later he heard 'five Revolver
shots. He,wheeled his machine
and 'drove 'back at top' speed to
where he had left the men and
girl.
The men had gone. The driver
found the dead body of the girl.
She had been shot through the collector of graft in the redlight
