BLOOD STAINED REVOLVER AND CLOTHING
FOUND IN SUIT CASE OF MAN WHEN HE IS
ARRESTED ON TRAIN IN WINDY CITY
OFFICIS BELIE III AFFECTE
..an
Evidence That He.Changed Clothes In the Woods Relatives Tell
of Efforts to Borrow Money Believed to Have Demanded
Signing of Papers By Koons.
Following the receipt of a telegram Wednesday night announ
cing that Cletus Willaman, accused of the murder of Warren Koons
d his "wife had been arrested in Chicago, Chief of Police Smith and
3Eretective Ryan left for that city at 9:59 Wednesday night
Willaman was approached by the Chicago police Wednesday
afternoon at 4:10.
He is in a cell at the Central station there. He states that he
will not fight extradition.. A special telegram to'The Morning News
from Chicago says:
Cletus Willaman who was arrested this afternoon on a Penn
sylvania train as it entered Chicago blames the crime on "the evil
spirit.". He refuses to give details.
In a suit case belonging to Willaman the police found a revol
ver, the barrel of which was covered with blood.. A blood smeared
undershirt was also found in the case.
Willaman appears to be mentally disturbed.. He talks about an
""Evil Spirt".. The Chicago Police are of the opinion that he is suf
fering from a religious mania.
The policeman who made the arrest asked him why he killed
Koons and his wife and after long deliberation he said:
"The evil spirit was in me. I don' tknow anything abou it.
When the proper time comes I will talk."
When shown the bloodstained garments and-weapon taken from
his suit case he admitted that they belonged to him but offered no
explanation for their condition. Twigs and leaves of- trees were
found in the garment, indicating that he had changed his underwear
in a wood after the commission of his crime.
"Bid you go into a thicket or woods," the detective asked the
prisoner.
X After gazing at the floor several minutes, Willaman replied,
Jfes, I think I did.. I am not .sure.., But. why do you ask me these
ns. I telI,you it wasthe evilspiri

"Dear .Family If I may dare to call you so-You write to Run-
lieU and sell that land.. Come and see me when I gefc.to Canton, if
you care for me any longer."
If Warren Koons and wife were murdered by Cletus Wlliaman
it -vas probably because the former refused to sign papers whereby
Willaman could secure money with which to go to Montana and
start farming. ,
This was disclosed Wednesday afternoon when Mrs. Maud Pay
Ior, a niece of Warren Koons, and Mrs. Hester A. Scroggy, an in
dmate neighbor, told the story of Willaman being there for the pur
pose of borrowing money.
Mrs. Koons confided the family secrets to Mrs. Scroggy and
told her that Willamaij refused to work and soon spent all the money
left his wife by her mother, who was the first wife of Mr. Koons. It
is claimed by relatives that to have peace Mrs. Willaman had placed
in the hands of her father, who was formerly her guardian what lit
tle bit of money remained.
Mr. Burroway, on
Earl Koons Is now staying with his grandfather,
Hartford street.
Ralph Scroggy, who resides in the next house west of the Koons home
hon Virginia avonue, said that about 3 o'clock Wednesday morning he
leard Mrs. Koons crying, "Oh my! Oh, myS Oh, my! In "the morning
he told his mother that Mrs. Koons was ill.
After news of Willaman's apprehension at Chicago was received It was
told to Mrs. Newman and Mrs. Maud Payler, the former a sister ;of the
murdered man and the latter a niece.
"Thank God, the rascal Is caught," cried Mrs. Newman.
"Oh, have they got him? May we thank God," said Mrs. Payler..
What amount Willaman wanted and how he wished to get It,- other
wise than by the signing of some papers were banished when the secret
died with Koons.
Relatives say that Willaman, who was a breeder of fancy Shropshire
sheep, had canvassed all the relatives. at different times for pecuniary aid.
Among them was Mrs. Amelia K. Numan, widow of Henry Numan, who
was solicited shortly after the death of her husbnd. She refused to give
him two hundred dollars, and he departed. Mrs. Paylor refused to say
whether or not he had solicited them for aid, but did Intimate that he
had.
Mariand Koons of Brown avenue wac very well acquainted with Willa
man, and It is said that he had been asked for a large loan and refused it.
To Mrs. Hester Scroggy, Earl, twelve-year-old son of the murdered man
and woman, said: "Mamma went out to get a drink. When she was go
ing out of the door a man who was under the bed shot her in the back
of the head. Papa jumped up and then saw three men."
It Is supposed that Mrs. Koons struggled to her feet and the frantic
boy thought it was another man. Continuing, Earle said:
"I saw Uncle Clef n the room, but later he went out and went into
his own room, and locked the door. No, no, no, It wasn't Uncle Cletus
who killed them."
The fact that It wasn't a triple tragedy was due to the fact that the
murderer thought he had killed Earl. When he was struck he was cry
Ing for help.
FINDING PARENTS DYING BOY CALLS FOR HELP.
Lying in pools of their own blood, Warren Koons, an em
ploye of the Berger works, and his wife were found murdered
about 10 o'clock Wednesday morning in the bedroom of their lit
tle home at o21 Virginiaiivenue, adjoining the plant of the Gilliam
Manufacturing company.
That the couple were killed during a fight with a cowardly
assassin is certain, and the police are now searching for Cletus
Willaman, living near Massillon who married a daughter of
Mr. Koons by his first wife.
It is known that 'Willaman remained over night at the Koona
house, where he was stopping temporarily until he could arrange
his plans for a trip to Montana. Descriptions of him and pic
tures arc now being sent by the Canton police to the police of all
nearby towns and cities. A man resembling "Willaman was seen
