Youth Kills Girl
Shoots Self On Lawn Of Church

Huntington, W. Va., -- Emma Lee Ronk, 16, was shot to death on a church lawn tonight by Franklin Petry, 19, who then killed himself. Officers said the slaying was witnessed by many persons en route to their home in the east end residential section.

They said young Petry grabbed the girl as she walked along the street with his 17-year-old brother, Harry, pulled her on the church lawn and shot her. Then he turned the pistol on himself. Police said the young girl had been keeping company with Franklin and expressed the opinion he was jealous of her friendship with his younger brother. They identified Petry as the president of the Christian Endeavor Society at the church where the shooting occurred.

Perfect School Child Murdered

Greenville, N.Y. -- The body of Greenville's "perfect school girl" - 9 year-old Helen Glenn - was found today in a nearby marsh, where it had been thrown after the girl had been attacked and slain. Two of the hundreds of towns-people who had searched for the child since she disappeared Wednesday night came across the body. It was turned over to Coroner M. E. Atkinson, who confirmed tonight the worst fears of the girl's father, the Rev. Ernest Glenn. "Somebody near Greenville is suspected of attacking and killing my child," he said late today.

Subdued excitement pervaded the town. Few residents ventured into the streets, and troopers in civilian clothes sat in tense circles in a downtown store, as if their quarry were nearby. But they wouldn't admit it in the face of muttering heard among the searchers earlier the day. One man was questioned and released.

Coroner Atkinson's verdict was that the child came to her death from a stab wound through the aorta, a main body blood vessel, and the liver. The single thrust caused death by internal hemorrhage. Dr. Atkinson said the child was perversely attacked. The little brown-haired girl was last seen walking proudly to commencement excerises at grammar school, where she had won a prize for perfect attendance during the winter term. A young man resident of the town told New York State's "Scotland Yard" he had seen her going down North Street at 7:45 p.m. Just before that she had stopped at two stores looking for her brothers.

Nothing more was seen of her until today. Under the impression the child was staying with friends, Mrs. Glenn did not report the absence of her daughter to police until yesterday morning. Their search fruitless, the police called in the State Scotland Yard, and welcomed townspeople in the hunt. This morning hundreds of men and boy scouts joined in the search. Just after noon John Zivell and Roy Lawyer found the body near a junk pike at the end of a lane near Basic creek. The clothing was torn almost off.

The men called troopers, who sent the body to Dr. Atkinson at Catskill. "This is a horrible case," he said after the autopsy. "I have information indicating that a suspect is under surveillance, but I do not think anything definite will develop until late tonight or early tomorrow". Mrs. Glenn collapsed late today, and tonight a physician was called to the home. Her condition is serious.
