Slayer Paces All Night In His Jail Cell

Arthur explained, "I loved the girl and just lost my head."

Arthur, at the county jail ate regularly and until the night before the verdict was due, slept with no problem. This night (February 25, 1933) he paced the floor of his cell all night keeping others awake. 

March 8, 1933 it is decided to present the case to the grand jury March 13, 1933.

March 15, 1933 fire destroys auto, garage at murder scene. Fire of an unknown origin destroyed the garage
at the John McCormick home, where Patricia Schubnell was murdered.  A year prior the garage was struck by lightening and destroyed. the structure that burned was a new structure.

March 17, 1933 A murder indictment was returned by the grand jury against Arthur Ringney. 

Another interesting article is: Raymond Hall of Naplate was indicted on a bill charging him with assault with a deadly weapon and intent to roll Felix Wajculas, Naplate junk dealer. Wajculas sustained a fractured skull in a holdup in January.

Who is Raymond Hall?  Have to check back for that answer...

TIP#6: While you might be reading the news article for certain facts, be open minded about what else is on the page.  The particular page about the murder indictment has been read by myself 5 or 6 times before I saw the next paragraph about Raymond Hall.  Raymond plays a part in Patsy's life as well.

  1. I always try to read the issues surrounding the date of an article - a few days before and/or a few days after. Especially if it was big news for the community. I found the search engines do not necessarily catch them all.
