Dr. Ceorge A. M-oleen, Denver
alienist and physician, was the
only expert witness summoned by
the state in their effort to prove
Blazer sane. He declared Blazer's
apparent stupor when he was
found with the body of the girl

opiate or chloroform. "Such stu

from insanity only in the most ad

Mrs. Bishop, the defense placed
three character witnesses on the
stand. All were former acquaint

testified as to acts they believed
would show that Dr. Blazer was
suffering from a mild form of insanity.
