I was at the library yesterday, and took a quick look at the Marion Star issue you mentioned, but I did not see an article that sounded like the one you were looking for. I also checked the day before and the day after. Can you provide any other information? Did the murder take place in Marion, or was it somewhere else, and just got a large coverage? Do you know anything about the victum? How did you come up with the date?I go up the the library fairly regular, and will take another look if you can provide anything else. If you like, you can E-mail me directly.
