Shafter Cleveland up a just one Wack after Marilyn Sheppard was savagely bludgeoned to death in Ber Home along Lake Erie police bad a confession in the widely publicized july 4, 1954, murder. The confessor was a woman. She telephoned from a tavern and in bushed tones told police she flew in vengeance for receiving poor medical treatment from or. Samuel h. Sheppard Marilyn a husband. It was just the first in a series of confessions and phony tips authorities received before and after the sensational trial in which or. Sheppard was convicted of second degree murder and sentenced to life in the Ohio Penitentiary. None of the previous confessions however received the amount of attention that has been focused recently on Donald j. Wedler a fugitive from a Florida Road Camp who would have been 20 when Marilyn Sheppard was struck with 35 blows from a weapon that police never found. Sheppard a chief defense counsel William Corrigan questioned Wedler at length in Deland fla., last week. His verdict a i think this Guy did he prepared a 1,200-word statement and Wedler signed it. But Corrigan was close mouthed on what he might do with the statement in View of the Flat rejection of Wedler a confession by authorities Here who questioned him earlier. Cuya hoga county Coroner Samuel r. Gerber one of three men close to the original investigation who went to Florida to question Wedler called the youth with the Blond sideburns a a or. Gerber called it the 26th confession to the murder of 31-year-old Marilyn Sheppard who was four months pregnant at the time. A few Reppard confessions and tips have been publicized. One such confession came from another Florida fugitive Billy 0 Williams 17, of Tampa who ran away from a criminal proceeding and wound up in a Trenton n.j., jail in september 1954. A Cleveland detective Dis etched to Trenton decided that Williams Ever had been Iowa Cleveland it was a a Long time then there was Henry a Ehrer 51, an sex convict who turned up in Cincinnati in november 1954 with the tale that he was with a burglar who murdered mrs. Sheppard. It was not until fuehrer had been brought to Bay Village where he admitted picking up a a late newspaper to refresh his store of information that a detective Learned that fuehrer was in the workhouse at Knoxville tenn., the sunday of the murder.
