T. U- VAUGHN
Greenville County Man Accused of
Unspeakable Crimes In Orphan Asy
lum Saws his Way to Freedom.
Greenville, juiio 26.?T. U. Vaughn,
former superintendent of the Odd
Fellows' Orphan home, located near
Greenville, and a prisoner In the
county jail since May 31, charged
with the trlplo crime of "rape, living
in adultery and procuring an abor
tion," the alleged victim being an or
phan girl under his care, sawed his
way to liberty early today and tonight
flees before the pursuing arm of the
law with the odds greatly In Ills fa
At 2 o'clock this morning Jailor
Phillips was aroused by a negro wo
man prisoner, who was confined in a
cell on the second floor above
Vaughn's cell, telling him that some
one was escaping from below. Before
the jailor could reach Vaughn's cell,
the bird had flown. The alarm was
quickly spread and a determined but
unsuccessful search has been made
throughout the day for the fleeing
Aided by Outsiders.
It Is practically certain that Vaughn
was aided by one or more persons
from the outside, and it is said that
Jailor Phillips rushed out Into the yard
in Lime to seo two men go over the
jallyard fence. The prisoner made his
escape by severing a section of one
of the window bars with a hack saw.
A short distance from the point where
he clambered over the Jail yard fence
he stumbled and on the spot was found
the saw frame, pieces of the blade, the
prisoner's hat and a letter addressed
to him. The hole through which the
man went measured twelve by seven
inches, and only one bar was sawed In
twain. In the vacant section today
was seen the section of tho bar the
man had sawed out. It had been
wrapped in cloths to deaden the rasp
ing sound of the hack saw. On the
floor of the cell lay the prisoner's
thumbed Bible, a copy of Whltter's
poems an da copy of Pilgrim's Pro
Rome rather ugly looking evidence
of carelessness on the part of the
?county officials with their prisoner
and of guilt on the part of the man's
brother in assisting Vaugh to es
cape has been brought to light to
day. It Is reliably stated that the
man's brother purchased the hack
saw and three blades from a local
hardware concern a week ago today
and Chief of Police Holcombe, who
learned of this purchase at that time,
stated today that he at once notified
the deputy sheriff and the jailor to be
on the alert, as Vaughn's brother had |
that day purchased a hack saw and
Well Supplied With Money.
The fugitive Is evidently well sup
plied with money as the records in
^ the office of the register of inesne
W conveyance show that since he was
placed In jail he mortgaged bis home
for the sum of $4,000. He Is a man
of rather keen Intellect and is well
informed and the county authorities
realize that they have a difficult task
to perform If they capture him. As
to whether he Is armed, they do not
>ot Only One Victim.
The Vaughn case created some
thing of a sensation in Greenville
when the warrant for his arrest was
sworn out. The press, out of con
sideration for the Odd Fellows' order
and the orphan children at the home
and out of respect for tho sensibili
ties of the public, has suppressed a
volume of details of the heinousness
Of the life Vaughn Is charged with
having led at the time he was In
charge of *' orphan home. While
the warrant against him charges him
with wronging only one girl, a state
ment In writing has been seen by this
correspondent wherein this girl states
that of her own knowledge Vaughn
wronged six of tho orphans in addi
tion to herself. ?
