Letters, interviews, and a study of the circumstances led to the theory as police extended the search for Mrs. Winnie Ruth Judd. 27, accused of the murders. County Attorney Lloyd Andrews of Phoenix, and Detective Inspector David Davidson of Los Angeles agreed as to the possible motive. Andrews also said that "the in- vestigation shows that drugs may have had some part in the affair." The Arizona attorney brought war- rants here for the arrest of Mrs. Judd and two "John Doe" companions who, he said, possibly aided in the murders. Suspicious of a Southern Pacific baggage-master who thought two trunks shipped from Phoenix contain- ed contraband deer led to the dis- covery of the bullet marked bodies, one dismembered, and the subseauent search for Mrs. Judd. Burton J. McKinnell, brother of Mrs. Judd, admitted he had taken his sister, wife of Dr. William Judd, Santa Monica physician, to the station to claim the trunks. After the baggage-master refused to release the trunks until they were opened, McKinnell said he took Mrs. Judd downtown, and had not seen or heard from her since. McKinnell, held as a. material wit- ness for 24 hours, was released today. He refused to comment on a jealousy theory. Detectives said, however. they learned that the women were jealous of attentions paid each other. Mrs. Anna Evans, 50-year-old nurse, who first introduced Mrs. Judd to the two victims, enlarged this theory.

By making its counter proposal the commission was believed to have averted for the time being at least any further speculation regarding wage reductions for rail workers such as a flat denial probably would have occasioned.
