A pile of bloodstained clothes had been found near a Union-Pacific timber-treating plant. At the same time, the owner of a sedan, J. L. McCarthy, found abandoned near Downey, ID was held for questioning. McCarthy was either under the influence of narcotics or faking it, he couldn't answer the questions.
The condition of the sedan indicated that a body had been thrust under a rear seat and had been driven a considerable distance before it was removed.
