through a sort of unauthorized
third degree, demanding to know
about her name, age, address,
home address and previous con
dition of servitude.
During the questioning they
asked her for references. She
mentioned the name of Hazel
Krause, the saleswoman and her
special friend.
Hinckley sent for Hazel Krause
and took her into a separate room
from that in which he had Es
telle Yaeger.
There Hinckley and Mike Mc
Guire accused Hazel Krause of
complicity with Estelle Yaeger to
defraud that great institution,

thief, told her that Estelle Yae

They say that Hinckley then
held them at the store while
Mike McGuire and his men went

article of clothing they could lay
their hands on. They say that
the private detectives even went
so far as to make a sick woman

at the flat in order to take from
her the kimona she was wearing.
They say that after the ran

McGuire had both of them taken
