Barrett Confesses Killing
But Some Think Him
Los Angeles. Cnl., Oct. 27. Whether
Benton L. Barrett, aged farmer, who
confessed slaying his wife and stepson,
is guilty oi murder or is the victim
of a hypnotist, is a mystery thut may
only be solved bv a jury trial, in ths
jipinion of District Attorney Woolwiue.
"We have sufficient evidence to go
to trial and convict Benton Barrett o.'
murder in the first degree," declared
Woolwine today. His statement was
backed up by the findings of Dr. I.ynink
B. Stookey, anatomist, who examined
ihe bones said to be those of Mrs. Bar
rett and Raymoud Wright, her 17-year-old
son- Dr. Stookey declared the bones
were "green" or those of a person who
recently died.
"There is no evidence to show that
Bentou I.. Barrett is guilty of murder.
We are iu a position to prove him in
nocent," dee In red Lewis D. Collings, at
torney for the defense. Collings' state
ment was supported by Captain H. R.
Ziuinier, an expert investigator, who de
clared the bones found in an outhouse
on the Barrett farm were those of a per
son who had been dead forji long time.
Collins declared he had information of
skeleton having been stolen receutly.

This process was accomplished .only by

on the part of the allies. Driving in

"There are several grounds for my
