Mrs. Henry Hall
Catlettsburg, Ky., Aug. 15 - The police of Catlettsburg and Huntington, W. Va., Monday were searching both banks of the Ohio river between the two cities in an effort to find the sport where Mrs. Henry Hall was murdered. Her body was found near Catlettsburg, in the Ohio river, a few days ago, and because a long rope was tied about it, murder was suspected. Elbert Artis, who was found with money Mrs. Hall is known to have had before her death, is under arrest, but after grilling by the police, makes no admission in connection with the case. He claims that Mrs. Hall gave him the money. The police charge that Mrs. Hall was strangled to death and her body thrown into the river.
