The grusome discoveries last night of the child’s head, chopped crudely from her tiny body. and dismembered parts of the blond, blue-eyed girl, came after one of the biggest man hunts in the city s police history got underway. The head, torso and legs were found in four different catch basins in the vicinity of the Degnan home at 5943 Kenmore Avenue. in the Edgewater Beach dis tnct on the north side. Only the two arms of the little victim were missing as nearly IOO policemen and crews from the city sewer department con tmued their all-night search. Meanwhile, scores of the department’s top ranking detectives ran down every possible clew in efforts to apprehend the kid-nap-killer. Several men wer# taken into custody for questioning. There was no disclosure immediately by Splice if any were regarded as B**>ects of the brutal murder. The only possible clews, ponce said, W’ere two bags, in one of which parts of the body had been placed before being thrown mto the sewers, fingerprints found on the window sill of Suzanne s bedroom and a makeshift seven foot ladder used by the kidnaper to enter the girl’s room.
