Charles Daniels, Dead Woman's For-
mer Husband, Held by Police.

Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Bert Kimbrell and Marshal Al Helsip went to Sugar Creek yesterday to make an investigation into the death of Mrs. Maggie Freeman, whose body was found beside the road north of Independence early Wednesday morning. Charles Daniels, former husband of the dead woman, is being held by the Independence police pending the investigation.

Daniels made another statement to the police yesterday and tells a similar story to the one related the morning the body of Mrs. Freeman was found. He claims that Ed Smith, who is still at large and was with Daniels, Mrs. Freeman and another woman the night before the body was discovered, is a card writer and is not known in this vicinity. He describes Smith as being short, heavy set, blue eyes, dark hair and poorly dressed.

Officers went to the Freeman home in Sugar Creek yesterday and took the tow children of Mrs. Freeman to the Humane office.
