Of Police Search
At Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES. Oct. U-(.?V
Police ran own such leads as
"a clean cut young man," some
one named Kirk, and an enig
matic note today, as thev search
ed lor Jean Elizabeth Spangler,
movie and television bit player
and lormer Earl Carroll dancer.
But not a single clue paid off.
The only reallv tangible lead. In
vestigators said, was her ripped
purse, lound in rambling Griffith
park. The 27-year-old brunette
has been missing since Friday
night. The purse was lound Sun
day. Locally, there were published
reports suggesting that she is the
tenth victim of a series of unsolv
ed sex murders which began in
January, 1948. with the mutila
tion slaying of Elizabeth hort,
known as the Black Dahlia."
Other reports linked her to the
Miml Boomhower case. The
wealthy Mrs. Boomhower disap
peared In August, hut the onlv
similarity between the two cases
seemed only to be that the purse
of each was lound.
Two witnesses Identified photo
graphs of Miss Spangler as a girl
they had seen In a Hollywood
cafe with a "neat appearing man
between 30 and 35 years of age"
Investigators were mystified
over a note in the purse reading:
"Kirk can't wait any longer.
