IN WIDOWS DEATH
Five Are Released After
Questioning—Number of
Others to Be Grilled.
By the AAsociAted Press.
PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 15.—A num
ber of additional suspects in the kill
ing of Mrs. Wilma V. Carpenter will
be questioned. District Attorney Fred
erick B. Smillie said today after re
leasing five persons who were exam
ined iast night.
Smillie denied earlier published re
ports that he believed Miss Mary
Griffin, friend of the slain woman,
‘'has not told all she knows.” The
girl told police a man shot Mrs. Car
penter in the Carpenter home in sub
urban Camp Hill and made repeated
attempts to assault her (Miss Grif
fin).
“Miss Griffin's story checks with all
the known facts, which are few,”
Smillie said.
The district attorney tried to obtain
Miss Griffin's release from the hospi
tal where she has been confined since
Monday, but doctors said she was not
yet ready for discharge.
Miss Griffin described the slayer as
a man having "an odd, flat head.”
Smillie said her description fitted that
given by Miss Emma Anderson, a maid
at the N. MacLean Seabrease home
next door, of a man whom she gave a
meal around noon Monday, and by
Thomas McNutt, Seabrease chauffeur,
who gave a man a ride shortly after
5 pm. Monday.
Dr. A. J. Craig of Fort Washing
ton, Pa., the first physician to ex
amine Mrs. Carpenter's body, also
denied that he said he believed Mrs.
Carpenter was killed by some one she
knew. He expressed the opinion that
the killer was a maniac.
Miss Griffin said that the young
killer, who confronted them with a
gun as they entered ETie Carpenter
home and demanded their money,
made no attempt to assault Mrs. Car
penter.
Police found the body of the widow
on the floor of a second floor bed
room and the room and bed spattered
with blod.

other nations without restriction. Ja
