Brinkiey NBC-TV WASHINGTON (UPI) - The FBI announced Wednesday that it had recovered about $190,000 of the $200,000 ransom paid the kidnapers of Mrs. Gunnar Kron-holm, 46, wife of a banker. FBI Director Clarence Kelley said the money was found under a snowmobile trailer in a garage of a vacant home in Burnsville, Minn., where they believe the kidnapers held Mrs. Kronholm captive. Mrs. Kronholm said she remained calm during most of her three-day ordeal, several hours of which were spent in the trunk of a car. But toward the end, she said, she became ‘‘quite shook.” She said that Monday, after the ransom had been delivered and she learned through radio {broadcasts that a suspect had been captured, she persuaded the man with her to let her go. As far as she knew, only two men were involved. She said they wore ski masks when they seized her Friday as she started to drive away from her home. Her husband paid the ransom from funds from his bank.
