Check of Fingerprints
By FBI Links Student
To Degnan Killing
By Ihe Associated Press
CHICAGO, June 29.—The Federal
Bureau of Investigation, State's At
torney William J. Tuohv said to
night, had found “identical” the
fingerprints of 17-year-old William
Heirens and a print found on the
Suzanne Degnan kidnap note.
Previous to the FBI report, con
firming conclusions reached by the
Chicago police bureau of identifi
cation, Mr. Tuohy had stated:
“At the present moment I am
satisfied that Heirens is the man,
but, as the matter stands now, I
have not yet deduced sufficient evi
dence to prove him guilty beyond
all reasonable doubt.”
Meanwhile the husky University
of Chicago student lay strapped in
his bed at Bridewell Prison hospital
in what officials termed a “shammed
delirium,” refusing to answer or
acknowledge questions put to him
by police or his parents.
Parents Get Counsel.
His mother, on advice of attor
neys she and the father had pro
cured, told him “refuse to answer
any questions,” but the youth
showed no emotion, or indicated
that he had heard her.
One of the youth’s attorneys,
John P. Coghlan, told reporters
that “our position is that there are
only suspicious circumstances”
against Heirens.
Mr. Tuohy said his investigation
had produced these findings:
1— 'That “points of similarity” had
been established between the print
of Heirens’ left little finger and a
fingerprint on the $20,000 Degan
ransom note and that veteran
fingerprint experts wei'e “convinced”
on this basis that the same man
made the two prints.
2— “That X-ray examinations
showed Heirens did not suffer a
skull fracture when a policeman
struck him on the head with a
flower pot when he resisted capture.
3. That police had established
Heirens’ fingerprints corresponded
with those found last October 5 in
the South Side apartment of Lt.
Evelyn Peterson, 26-year-old Army
nurse who was bound and assaulted
by an intruder, and that Heirens
has been “definitely linked” with
several Chicago burglaries, some in
the neighborhood of the Degnan
Medical Kit Discovered.
4. That a medical kit containing
surgical instruments, including a de
tachable surgical knife and detach
able surgical saw, were found in his
dormitory room and that a two
bladed fisherman's knife was found
between his mattress and the side
of the bed.
5. That among the stolen property
found in Heirens’ room were sou
venirs sent home by a serviceman
from Germany and burglarized from
an apartment which overlooks the
Degnan home on Kenmore avenue
several days before the kidnaping.
6. That University of Chicago rec
cords showed that Heirens was
marked absent from his 9 a.m. class
January 7. He had an 8 a.m. class
for which no attendance records
were kept and was marked present
at a 10 a.m. class.
Friends of Heirens said he was
on the university’s junior wrestling
team, had "dates” about twice a
week and had been taking dancing

The six-year-old Degnan girl was
lidnaped and killed January 7 in a
manner that shocked the Nation.
Residents throughout the city were
frightened and the Degnan neigh

parts of the little girl’s dismem

Hidden Words Link Heiress
To Degnan Ransom Note
Special Dispatch to The Star
CHICAGO, June 29.—State’s at
torney William J. Tuohy said today
that there are startling connections
between William Heirens and the
hidden writing discovered on the
Degnan ransom note by the Chicago
Daily News.
“Among the tracings on the kid
nap note were the letters ‘eire,’ the
four middle letters of Heirens’
name,” Mr. Tuohy said.
"The name ‘Pera’ appears three
times. Heirens was caught burglar

"This is sufficient to convince us
that every name on Frank San
