THREE VICTIMS OF
AN UNKNOWN FIEND
Savannah Ga Scene of Re
volting Crime Jail Crowd
ed With Suspects
Savannah Ga Dec 10 Victims of a revolting crime Xrt Eliza
Gribble 70 years old and her daughter Xn Carrie Ohbutar were
found dead in their home today while Kn Maggie Hunter 32 years old
found just inside the front door of the houe is at the Savannah hos
pital dying
Physicians say Mr OhUndcr was the
victim of a criminal Msult before she
was killed
One hundred and fifty negroes are
prisoners in the police station awaiting
examination A reward of 1000 has
been offered for the arrest and comk
tion of the assailant
The police believe that the slayer
using an ax beat Mrs 3ribble to death
struck down Mrs Hunter and after as
saulting Mrs O lander beat In her
skull with the weapon
Mrs Grtbble evidently was attacked
from behind as she sat in an easy
chair On the floor beside her body were
found the newspaper she was reading
and her spectacles
Feeling is intense The horde of pris
oners in Jail is quiet and frightened It
is believed if the negro suspected of the
crime is caught he can be quickly iden
tified
Bloodhounds have been at work In an
effort to take the trail from tht wood
shed where the ax was found by the
murderer but as the Gribble house li 1
almost within the heart of the city and
as the murders weie probably commit
ted several hours before the discovery
of the bodies the dogs will be of little
use
It is almost certainly known the ne
gro at first suspected Is guilty Sev
eral persons say thle negro was seen
enteting the Gribble house with an axe
in his hand and was seen closing tre
shutters of the house and to leave the
premises all at the hour when it it
believed the crimes were committed

printed on hand bills and scattered
