   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - March 21, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                 BCI Agents Saturate Crime Areas in Clue Quest  By Charles Roberts  DES MOINES (AP) — Stale crime investigators carry shaving gear and two days’ clothing in their rara in case they are rushed to probe crimes such as the slayings of two Cedar Rapids teen-agers  The Iowa bureau of criminal investigation (BCI) drew its agents from such widely-scattered points as Mason City, Des Moines. Cedar Palls, Burlington, Davenport, Cen terville and Council Bluffs to saturate areas where the two teens were found.  Eleven state agents were called to investigate the deaths of Maureen Connolly, 17, and Michael Servey. IR The law officer* helped local authorities in the Cedar Rapids an a and near Anamosa investigate the deaths, and arrest two suspect*.  “Don’t Rush”  Miss Connolly’s corpse was found last Saturday near Anamosa. Servey was discovered in a wooded area south of Cedar Rapids.  “Probably the most important thing is to protect the crime scene and don’t rush it,” explained BCI Director Craig Reek in an interview.  “Once you’ve moved the body, you’ve burned a bridge” and may have lost some evidence.  That Is why it is very important that local law officers understand that it is vital to make sure nothing is disturbed until the experts arrive, he said.  But there is one chore a policeman must do as soon as he gets to a murder scene — even if some evidence is disturbed, the director said.  “He must make sure the body is dead. The first mission is to preserve life.”  By flooding a crime area with state agents to supple  ment the investigation made by local authorities, (he BG often can uncover clues before time washes them from the minds of potential witnesses, he said.  Through their investigation, of the Connolly and Servey slaying*, state agents and local official* developed a lead that led to the arrests of Atwell Conner, 29, of near Cedar Rapids, and George Nowlin, 31, Keystone, who were picked up Tuesday.  Charges  They wert charged with murder and robbery with aggravation in Cedar Rapids,  and wit ti murder and rape in Anamosa.  Miss Connolly and Servey disappeared March 9 after asking a friend to firing ga,so line for their auto parked on a south Cedar Rapids street. Miss Connolly’s body was found last Saturday, Servey’* one day later.  When word was received in Des Moines that the murders occurred, a state agent and a MCI chemist both assigned lo the stall* crime laboratory, Climbed into a squad car equipped as a mini-lab and rushed to tile scene The squad car carries red lights  and a siren, so the investiga tors can get to a crime scene before evidence is disturbed  A state official said that investigation now indicates that Miss C o ii n o 11 y and Servey  Waukon Airs Hospital, Notice of Gas CityPaving Project Sale Limitation  Must Be Posted  DES MOINES A number of  WAUKON Representatives of Waukon Medical Associates were slain at the Ideations  ;in( l the city hospital approved where they were found — not ^ this week’s city council meeting to discuss the feasibility of service stations may be limiting expanding the city’s 1973-74 pav- purchases of gasoline without! mg project to connect the bos-  t ,     notic(!    of     this,    the  pita! drive with East Main street.  and tran-  Legislative Notes by Frank Nye  Grassley Considers His  First Prize Appropriate  Charles Grassley (R New  killed elsewhere sported there.  Medical examination showed the victims each received a bullet wound in the head.  Money was taken from Servey, officials believe, but Miss Connolly’s purse was still on her arm when her l»dy was discovered.  Authorities said at first that the young woman had not been molested, but later, rape charges were filed by Jones County law officers against Nowlin and Conner.  I)  ES MOINES — State Rep Hartford), a candidate for the Republican nomination for Third district congressman, says the biggest hand he’s received on his campaign travels so far was at Independence the other evening.  Grassley won a door prize at the Buchanan County Cattlemen’s Assn. dinner “I ve never won anything in my life before” — and it turned out to be a cattle whip.  He got the big round of applause when he told the assembled guests he guessed he’d just take it back to the legislature to use on a few recalcitrant lawmakers.  □ □ □  Spies at Work  ANDIDATES who might wind up running against each other keep an eye on the other fellow, as Sen. Michael Blouin (D-Dubuque) readily confessed recently.  Blouin is in a four-candidate race for the Democratic party's nomination for Second district congressman. A colleague, Sen. Tom Riley (R-Cedar Rapids I, is in a two-candidate race for the Republican nomination for the same post. So they might wind up as foes this fall.  Someone came into the senate during a recess the other day and asked of anyone within hearing distance:  “Where’s Tom Riley?”  Up popped the accommodating Blouin with a grin and this helpful reply:  “Last time I had him spied on he was in my phone booth.” .  $1,148 Loss in Tipton Breakin  outside  c  TIPTON - A total of $1,148 in merchandise was taken in a breakin at the Cedar County Co  s in° through a secret 1,200-yard Op feed mill, the Cedar countv  tunn< ' 1    t0    an an( - ,|ent   sheriffs office reported Thur.s- f™ 3 "  amph,lhealer  day.
