Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 19, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa IO Tilt Cdir Rapids Gazette:Journalist Reveals Tale of Harrowing Trip Editors Note:    Sandy Fa wires, a journalist with the London Daily Express, has been traveling in the United States. Twelve days ago she met Paul John Knowles in At Ianta and traveled with him to Florida without knowing that he was wanted for questioning in up to 12 slayings. She wrote the following account for the Atlanta Constitution. B> Sand> Faults ATLANTA (AP) - He was tall, fair and handsome, with the immaculate manner of the comfortably rich American We had met in a bar in Atlanta and he had offered to show me the city. After a romantic evening he suggested we drive down to Miami. where he was going to see his lawyer and I was to visit friends. It seemed like a good way of spending a few days and seeing a hit of America, so I invited him to pick me up at my hotel the following day How could I have possibly known that those strange hands, the hands that would carry my suitcases, fasten my seatbelt, catch a mosquito hawk (dragon fly) in my room and carry it tenderly to freedom, had only three days before strangled and trussed a 15-year-old girl. police said, and reportedly stabbed her father to death, plunging scissors into him 27 times? The man I knew as Darrel Golden was really a wanted criminal. (The man she identified as Golden is believed to be Paul John Knowles, 28. a Florida parolee charged with murder in two Georgia slayings and wanted for questioning in sex oral other slayings. He is being held in the Bibl) county jail in Macon while authorities search for a missing Florida highway patrolman and a Delaware business man thought to have been taken hostage by Knowles last week ) Tingly Spine My spine still cramps with fear when I remember the jokes I made about what a risk I was taking, setting off on a journey with a stranger Now I feel it was those jokes and my sense of humor that kept me alive. We drove through the autumn countryside of Georgia keeping a careful eye out for traffic cops. As we neared Jacksonville. he said he was tired and asked me to drive. While I did so he* put his head on my lap and went fast asleep. Only later did I discover that he had jumped parole from this section of Florida, and that the car that I was so thrilled to be driving had been reported stolen four months previously and that the owner has never been seen since. When he awoke, I teased him gently about the conversation we had had the evening before. We had gone to the revolving bar at the top of the Regency hotel in Atlanta and watched the city move slowly around. It was romantic and we sat talking about ourselves in that intimate way complete strangers can For a while he talked about his family, his father who owned a small chain of restaurants in New Mexico, his brothers and sisters and the* mother he loved. It was when he asked me as a journalist if I would write a book about him I began to think. “Oh my God, I’ve got a right one (kook)." But I thought since I was drinking his drink, I would listen to him patiently He then told me art extraordinary story of some sec ret in his life that could only be told after his death. which he expected could come any time. He did not expec t to live a year He told me that the tapes with the details were deposited with his lawyer in Miami and that they would make world headlines when they we're published. It was a tall story and like any astute English lady I took it with a large pinch of salt Loner ( ult He again denied all my joking attempts to identify him as a murderer, narcotics sumggler or recent version of the Boston Strangler Yet he admired the cult of the loner, the social outcast His voice was very low It was the first time I felt fear, but like a fool I brushed it away. In the end I felt he was a lonely young man on a sillier ego trip. and was sorry for him. His manners were superb My wish was his command Doors were opened, drinks wc*re ordered. We went wherever I wanted to go; ( ape’ Canaveral, St Augustine’s fort He was proud of his America How could I possibly know that the clothes which he looked after so carefully and displayed so proudly had allegedly been bought by his victims’ credit cards? He stayed at West Palm Beac'h when we arrived near Miami, but not at my hotel. He met me at my hotel’s bar for several days. He even drove me in that supposedly stolen car. to an interview I had arranged with U S Atty. Gen William Saxbe. I was preparing to return to London and had many other friends to see So I left him in a bar and didn t return his phone c alls It was at that bar that he met some friends of mine who liken! him and took him back to their hotel for a drink, and that was where he stayed that night The* next day he* offered to drive my friend’s wife to the hairdresser and on the way attempted to rape hor She escaped, and from then on the gentle person who had carried my hags when we went shopping and had looked after my wallet so that it wouldn’t get stolen disappeared. He never took anything from me; it s really extraordinary I reported his rape attempt to the police immediately, and identified him from a police photograph I fen*I simply terrible* that I misjudged him so, but of course I’m relieved that he didn't harm me I was thinking of moving to the United States, but I see I have a gre at deal more to learn about America before I do that Sandy Fawkes Wool Winners Robbin Jordan, I 2, at left, and Sarah Allen, I 7, show off the wool outfits they entered in the District I “Make-lt-With-Wool” contest, held recently at Prairie high school.
