VOLUMH 92 NUMBER Mil MSI War 'mnpitta ® TWO DIE CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19, 1974 CITY FINAL 15 CENTS ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES 2 Fryer Brothers Flee Jail ROCK RAPIDS (UPI) -Two brothers, charged in the shotgun slayings of four teenagers at a northwest Iowa state park last year, escaped Wednesday from the Lyon county jail. Allen Fryer, JO, was awaiting sentencing on a four-count murder conviction, while his brother, James, 21, was awaiting trial on four counts of murder. The Fryers, both of the Sioux Falls, S.D., area, were charged in the November, 1973, slayings of the four Sioux Falls teenagers as they were sitting around a campfire at the Gitchie Manitou state park. Lyon county authorities said the two were being held on different floors of the county jail. Allen apparently picked the lock on his cell and then aided James in escaping. The brothers were discovered missing about 9 a.m. by Lyon county sheriff’s deputies. A third brother, David Fryer, 24, is serving a life sentence in the Iowa state penitentiary after pleading guilty to an open count of murder in connection with the slayings. Officials said both escapees are considered extremely dangerous. Does Tape Shake Nixon Story?

The dead were identified as Mr. and Mrs. Wallace White, who apparently were asleep when the high winds hit their home. Authorities were searching for four workers Wednesday in an industrial park south of Ankeny. Officials said time cards for the four were still in their slots at a business in the tract, but the four had not been found. In Bedclothes Polk county Medical Examiner R. C. Woofers said the Whites were in bedclothes and apparently had been asleep at the time of the storm. Dr. Woofers said he believed they did not know the storm had hit the house. There was some fear that a third person had died when I their son was reported missing after the storm, but he was later believed to have been in the Ames area.
