ory advanced- now for the murder of
Normaa "V. Shear. Buffalo garage
man, and his fiancee, Miss Mary Eliz
abeth Messmer. on Ensmlngcr road.
The road -where the double crime
was committed Is known as "Lovers'
Lane." It runs off the river road, the
main highway between this city and
T&nawsada,' and is frequently used
by motorists, especially those living
In the Black' Rock section of Buffalo.
Sheriff -Bradley and his deputies
ate of the ppinion that Shear and
)Mlss Messmer were killed after an
attempt had been made to blackmail
the couple, 'who were found seated In
the automobile at a late hour. The
sheriff bases his opinion on the num
ber of reports received by him of
late. telling" of bogus officers who
flashed badges and demanded money
of motorists under threats of arrest.
' Believe He Resisted.
-Shear and his companion, it Is be
lieved, were the victims of a bogus
officer. The dead- raan, it is held
may nave been approached by a
p&eudo officer, -who threatened arrest.
Shear and the girl were engaged
and were soon to be married. Shear
ra!ay have resisted the attempted
blackmail, possibly recognizing the
GJjnman, and was then shot down, the
authorities believe. The fact that the
-woman -was iouna aeaa on tne roaa

is working on the blackmail theory
and expects to get more definite in
fermatton from motorists who re
ported the attempted hold-ups on thei
JSnsmmger road last week.
Keiatives and friends of the mur
dered couple refuse to accept any
other, theory than that they were
lulled by a thug. Shear was unarm

the automobile ride on Sunday night.
In fact it Is said he never owned a

bad any other admirers, and it is de
clared a Jealousy motive for the dou
