rel of waste on the second floor of
the building in which the tragedy
occurred, and Emerson was discov
ered to have sent a blood-stained
suit of clothes to the cleaner to be
cleaned. A blunt iron instrument
bearing traces of hair and blood
was also discovered on the second
floor. Finger prints on Mrs. Emer
soh's arm were declared by physi
cians to have been inflicted before
Mrs. Emerson was last Seen alive
