Of Monto Carlo Solved at Last
O? thu' Man and Woman in Whoso
Possession lt Was Found Over in
Tho authorities of Franco wore
confronted hy a perplexing problem
in a trunk mystery, unearthed in
Marseilles, some ten days ago. Mr.
and Mrs. Goold, an elderly couple
woro travollng with the dismembered
body of a woman lu their trunk and
her head and feet in a safchol. wino
subjected to a process of "cooking"
lu tho hope that they would tell about
tho .:rlme. The woman is French,
tho niau English, and the murdered
wo) Jp ny a Swede.
lHhuIly. Goold broke down and
confessed to the magistrate. He re
lated coolly all the details of the
horrible crime. Ile alone had slain
tho'wonian, he declared, and it was
ho who cut up her body, although
his wile helped him pack it away in
thole baggage. After this had been
donn they both agreed to journey to
Marseilles, where they planned to
cast the body into tho sea. '
Mrs. Violet Goold also confessed 1
her part in the crime, bno said her '
huslumd had promised to give Fm ma ]
Lovitt tho sum of $100, but sho dc- i
mauded $100 more. To this Mr.
Goold objected, and said he wombi 1
not pay the extra hundred. ThefO.up
on kimma Levin abusen, aim. Refer"!- i
lng to what happened next, Goold, in .
his confession, says:
"f had boon drinking, and bocom- 1
lng angry I seized a hunting knife '
and buried lt Itt Bm m a's back. She i
foil" dead. The next day I dismem- ,
bored the body with a saw and a
knife, and placed the torso in a 1
trunk and the head and logs in a I
valise. 1 only stabbed the woman 1
once. The other wounds on her body ,
must; have been caused by packing
her in tho trunk."

his father an Irish magistrate. Ile .
said he had at. one Hine served secret

Tho murder was unearthed by ac- c
elden!. Blood oozing out of a trunk 1
at tue Marseilles railroad station at- *
traded the attention of a porter. He '
summoned the police and tho old j
people wore arrested after an inspoc- '
tloa of their baggage, lt contained
the body of a woman. The head and J
lower parts of tho legs wore missing. '
Tluve were carried in a hand bag. c
M ..and Mrs. Goold said the murder 1
I., j boon committed by a man named "
Parkes, who escaped, and that they J
were taking the body to London, Fug- J
land, to bury lt without causing any *
commotion at Monte Carlo. v
The victim proved to be Mrs. Fm- s
ma Livey, a Sweodlsh woman, widow
of a rich Jewish trader of Stock- 1
holm. She had been residing at 1
Monte Carlo for some time and had H
boon an associate of the Goop's, al fi
whose invitation she went to theil' ,s
boine on tho afternoon of the murder. k
She was never seen afterward alive. 1
Within throe hours she had been kill- [
od, cut lo jilecos and packed ill a f
trunk and made ready for shipment.
A niece who returned home lo lind x
her aunt and uncle ready for a trip
to England) says slid sat on a trunk 1
and chatted with tho aged couple for '
some time and that she noticed a 6
strong scent of lavender water, for :
which her aunt accounted by saying (
she had upset a bottle. 1
Heath was caused by a deep slab ^
in Ibo breast. It is not believed by '
tho police that the old man was able 1
to Indict the wound or that the eld- *
orly couple were able to do tho cut- '
ting unaided. For these reasons, it (
ls believed, there is a third parly in '
the case. Robbery was evidently tho j
motive for the crime. Jewels known '
to have belonged to the dead woman
were found on Mrs. Goold's person. 1

"The purpose of the Japanese is to
