I Autopsy Ordered on Collyer, Found in Own Booby Trap ty rtw Awociatad Pran NEW YORK, April Tb« find ing of Langley Collyer’* body amid the filth and squalor of the race fashionable home he shared with his blind toother, Homer, left the Coll yer legend just about finished today. There will be an autopsy to de termine the cause of death—but police held little doubt the 61-year old recluse, whose rat-gnawed body was found late yesterday, had been the victim of one of his own booby traps, rigged to tumble heavy junk on an intruder. Still uncertain was the source of a telephone message to police that led to the finding of the body of Homer Collyer, 65, in the house March 21. Police found Homer, the one-time admiralty lawyer, in a front room of the second floor of the three-story brownstone house, near a window. It was the same room in which Langley died—possibly while taking food to the blind brother. Police were Inclined to dismiss a report that Langley had been seen alive the day before Homer was found dead. Junk Being Removed. Between the times of the two macabre discoveries, 120 tons of junk, filth and oddities had been removed from the house. Police began the job, which later was taken over by the Public Admin istrator’s Office. Langley’s body was wedged be tween a wooden dresser and iron bookcase which evidently had sup ported the heavy debris that had fallen on the body. “This only bears out what the police thought ajl along—that Collyer was caught as the victim of one of his own booby traps,” Police Commissioner Arthur W. Wallander said. A rat described by a detective as “big as a rabbit” ran away when the body was uncovered. Homer had died only 9 feet away— partly from malnutrition. The Collyer brothers were reared in a prosperous, old and cultivated family, the sons of Dr. Herman Livingston Collyer, a gynecologist who died in 1923, and Mrs. Susie Gage Collyer, who died in 1929. About that time the brothers began to shun society, never giving any fuller explanation than that they preferred to live alone. 14 Pianos Found. The finding of 14 pianos in the cluttered house indicated that in early years the brothers were not miserly with their fortune, recently valued by the family attorney, John R. McMullen, at around $100,000. Rather they sought only seclusion and safety behind the boarded up windows of the house on upper Fifth avenue. In later years, however, Langley was said to have walked miles to find a bargain on his nocturnal prowlings for food for himself and Homer, who became blind in 1933. Much of the trash which filled the house was brought back by Langley from these missions. Some of it was left over from their childhood, from the time when Homer studied law at Columbia University and Langley Fort Myer Heights Meeting Die Fort Myer Heights Citizens’ Association will meet at 8 pm.

One of the last oddities found before Langley’s body was discovered was an unworn black-striped shirt and flaming red tie, gifts to Langley on his 33d birthday on October 3, 1918, from his father. “With many happy returns of the day from pop,” said a slip in the box.
