LABERT TELLS OF FINDING "HIS
LITTLE GIRL" ORPET, SR.,
With murder versus suicide the
lines drawn in the trial of Will Orpet,
charged with the murder of Marion
Lambert, recess was taken last night
Frank Lambert, who has become
known as "the man of tragedy,"
took the stand yesterday and testi
fied regarding his finding of his "lit
tle girl, Marion," under the fresh
snow in Helm's woods, after he and
his wife had remained up all night
praying that their only child might
escape harm. Following him on the
stand was E. 0. Orpet, father of the
boy accused of murdering Marion
Lambert, who tried in every way to
shield his son.
Efforts of State's Att'y Dady to
prove anything important by Orpet's
father failed. To the surprise of
every one Orpet said he could not
identify the handwriting in more
than two of the 44 love letters writ
ten by Will Orpet to Marion Lambert,
though the state had expected this
to be but a mere formality. Unless
Mrs. Orpet identifies the letters the
state may have difficulty in identify
ing what has been considered one of
the vital factors of the case.
Objection of Orpet's attorney and
ruling by Judge Donnelly prevented
Dady obtaining evidence that would
show that the boy slept in his
father's garage on the night before
his last tryst with Marion, and would
have brought out the story of the
hiding in the ash heap of all the cy
anide of potassium kept in the
gr.eenhouse at Mr. Orpet's home a
week after the boy had been arrested.
Frank Lambert testified that Mar
ion could not have obtained cyanide
to kill herself, which is said to be one
of the points the deefnse will make.
He declared the cupboard in which
the poison was kept could be entered
by no one but himself, as it was
locked and he carried the only key.
