Fourth Formal Charge Against Film
Comedian For Actress' Death
Urge3 Fullest Inquiry
San Fra-ncisco, Cal., Sept, 14.
The coroner's jury returned a ver
dict today holding that Miss Virgin
ia Rappe, motion picture actress,
came to her death thru peritonitis
caused by rupture of an internal or
gan. Roscoj (Fatty) Arbuckle was
held responsible by the jury for Miss
Rappe's Injury, and the district at
torney was directed to conduct a
full Investigation of the matter.
The verdict charged Arbuckle with
manslaughter, and directed that all
official sources concerned conduct a
full and exhaustive investigation
The jury held that Miss Rappe
came to her death thru the appli- if
ration or force, whicn we believe
from the evidence was applied by
Roscoe Arbuckle, and we hereby
charge him with manslaughter.
"We recommend that the district
attorney, chief of police, grand jury
and prohibition officers take steps to
prevent a further occurence of such
events so that San Francisco will
not be made the rendezvous of the
debauchee and gangster."
Hen Boas, one of the nine Jurors,
returned a minority verdict in which
he said that Miss Rappe's fatal in
juries were caused by the applica
tion of some force, "but I am un-.
able to say who applied It."
