1924: Tells Story of Shooting and Burying

Woman Declares She Shot and Hacked Man To Death.

Middletown, Conn., April 11.–Buried face downward beneath a dump pile, the body of Charles Blair was found today. Previous search for the body had failed and state police had begun to believe the story of Mrs. Tell that she had buried the body was untrue. The body was fully clothed. Blair’s throat had several deep cuts, almost severing the head.

From the Times Herald (Olean, New York), Friday, April 11, 1924.
