MAY BE BONES OF VANISHED LOVERS Finding of Skeletons in High land Park Recalls Disap pearance 20 Years Ago Highland Park authorities believe that the skeletons of a man and wo man found in a shallow grave at the rear, of the D. U. R. car barns on Woodward-ave., Saturday, are those of a young couple who came from Ypsilanti, 20 years ago. to attend a German picnic, disappeared and were never afterward seen. The Incident was recalled by Robert Holloway, formerly of Ypsl* lantl, one of those who attended the picnic, who is now living in Retford. He declared that the disappearance of the couple was reported to the police at the time, but as it was generally believed that they had eloped, investi gation was dropped. A large knife, found in the grave with the bodies, Indicates foul play, but whether a suicide pact existed be tween the man and woman, whose bones were uncovered, Saturday, or whether they were slain by a third person, the police are unable to guess.
