investigation of the case The federal men have been silent on whether Feguer made any statement Police Chief Percy Lucas said that Bartels whose wife is expecting a fourth chiJd was apparently a total stranger to a man who had summoned him by telephone on the night of July 11 on what was supposed to have been a sick call Dr Bartels was believed to have been carrying only abou and whether there were drugs in his satchel that an assailant might want has not been cleared up Why was Dr Bartels called instead of some other phy sician Investigators said that an answer mighl be that his name was near the top of the list in the yellow pages of the telephone book At what time did the slayer put a bullet through the doc tors head and leave him fully clothed in a cornfield Police said indications were that it must have been a ter rifying ride in the little Rambler car over a 10mile stretch of Highway 20 and down a rural road to the Ar thur Avcrkamp farm in Illi nois They said the killer may have been looking for a spot to dispose of his victim and probably shot Dr Bartels in the back of the head as the bullet appeared to have come through one of his eyes Federal agents had identi field Feguer as the Sam New man who had rented a room in an area from where the ficitious sick call came They also said Feguer who got out of the Michigan state prison only last April cashed in phony checks at Du buquc stores the day of the doctors disappearance Dr Bartels medical bag and a 380 automatic were still in the Rambler when FBI men said Feguer tried to sell it ata used car lot in Birm ingham The suspicious lot owner who had seen an FBI circular on the doctors car managed to call officers before Feguer got away Feguer did not resist arrest But FBI Agent Clarence Kel ley at Birmingham said Feguer told agents later that if they hadnt come up on him fast and if he hadnt had somebody with him they would have had it out right then and there rnandcr Vladimir Glinsky for mer assistant naval
