Expectation, of finding tho body Melvin Horst, 4, by digging in tho backyard oE the former Orrville homo of Charles Hanna, was aban- doned at- a. m. todiy. The- ea- liro back yard had been dug up to a depth averaging six feet on the strength of a story told early today by Hanna, that Jtelvin was buried there, Dec. 27, 192S, the day ho mysteriously disappeared, by Earl Conald. Both Hanna and Conald are held in jail in Wooster. They signed statements Friday accusing other of having killed JMclvin in a garage near his homo in Orrville. Each of them denied the other's ac- cusation and had steadfastly main- tained tliey did not know what was done wiUi tile body. Told Alleged -Burial Today, however, after long ques- tioning, Hanna Detective Ora Slater that Conald, after allegedly g tho boy, buried the body in Manna's back yard, at night, while Hanna stayed inside the house to keep the family away from rear ivindows where they might witness .ho burial. Under supervision of Orrville of- Fiecrs, workers dug in the back yard of Hunna's former iioine for sii hours. Then, convinced the body rat> not there, Lee Pontius, Orr- villo deputy marshal, ordered tho mle filled in. Diverted Attention Officers said Hanna probably told J.ie story of tho burial to divert 'at- .cntion from himself and thereby gain temporary respite from hammering of; questioning to which lie- had been subjected hour after hour for most of the past three days. When the digging for Melvin's body was abandoned, Prosecutor Marion Graven, Assistant Proseeut- >r Walter Mougcy, and Sheriff Jlark Shearer returned to Woostcr and went to bed. They were cx- lausted from their efforts of the >ast three days, during which time hey had almost, no sleep.
