K Father and Fiance View Scene.
William Witt was .at the Hotel Loyal
Saturday In company with Mr. ahd Mrs.
''Kennett of Lincoln.
"I( was all a mistake to think that I was
out of town )at night," said Mr. Wilt.
"I returned home about 10 o'clock and waa
told of tho tragedy- This, morning I went
to the police station to see if they wanted
tu ak me ajiy questions. 1 had never
seen this man . Uouilclt until this mouilng,
.y hen I went to the hospital, Miss Kennett,
however, had often (spoken of him 'to me,
and. I knew he had for no reason threat
ened her on several ot-casfons. They be
cane aequa nted in Florence, I think, where
she uaed tu wolk In a lunch room, and she
went o.ut with him eeveral times, but they
veie never engaged, and 1 am sure that
a s'.ie had uo affection tor lilni. She went to
tevcjal dunces with hiui and that was all.
"She had frequently spoken to ma of
threats he had made to her, but I did not
at that time consider them serious. About
ten days ago he wrote her letter, in
which he asked fur an Interview, and
stated that ah need fear no harm, but she
paid no attention to 1t."
Clcirlesennelt, father of tho murdered
girl, is an employe ot the Capital City Ice
company in Lincoln. 'They have 'three
otlu-r children, two girls and' one boy, all
of them younger than Miss Edna. Mr. ahd
' Mrs. Kennett came to Omaha Saturday
' morning and viewed the poena of the
'tragedy 1n company with - Mr. Witt and
1 were overcome with grief. Mr. Kennett
broke down completely in the Hotel Loyal,
' where he and hia wife are the gueats of
Manager Taggart and could scarcely speak
' st all of hi daughter's death.
"We hav never seen this man Qoodell
but once," said Mr. Kennett. "That was
at our home in Lincoln. We knew that he
waa acquainted ' with our daughter, but
knew very little about hla' character. .We
cam to Omaha thla morning and have
. sen tha plac of the shooting." .
They were not taken to see Hie corpse
until Ute In the afternoon because of their
extreme grief and excited condition.
