Spencer who admits according to the police that he had been drinking with Hammett on monday night when he was last seen alive was detained for several hours yesterday by Coroner of Gorman but was not placed under arrest. His Story Sheds Little Light on the motive for the murder and although the police have several other witnesses who saw the Soldier the night he disappeared none could Tell anything that would Lead them any nearer to a solution. It became known last night that a Telephone message was received at the fort on wednesday stating that the body of a Soldier from the fort w As in Westchester Creek the fort authorities endeavoured to learn the truth or falsity of the report by telephoning to the police. Hammatt was known to be missing but As it would have been about eight Davs before his absence would have made him a deserter under army rules not much importance was attached to the Telephone mess age. Inquiry has been started As to the identity of the senders of the message who knew of the body in the Creek nearly Twenty four hours before the attention of the police was called to it. The body was found about 500 feet North of the Unionport Bridge by capt. P. Penny of the tugboat Harlem River. Penny notified policeman Harvey of the we Chester station who got permission to remove it to the stables of the Westchester police station near the new York new Haven and Hartford Railroad station. The first report to the coroners office that the Man evidently had been drowned. While searching the clothing policeman Harvey found the Stab wound in the right Side. Coroner of Gorman who was at City Island was then notified. Just before the Coroner arrived at the station capt. Scott of the Eightieth Arm Ler it passed the stable. He was told of the finding of the body and that the Man was evidently a Soldier. He looked at the body and identified it As that of Hammett. Capt Scott told the police they say that Hammett was on guard duty on sunday. When he was relieved at guard mount about 8 30 monday morning he received a furlough until reveille tuesday morning a usual custom. He said that Hammett went to his company quarters and slept until evening. He left the fort with corp. Spencer and Spencer returned alone. Hammett failed to respond at the reveille Roll Call tuesday morning. When Coroner of Gorman arrived he went with acting Captain Tappin and detective Lynch to visit Raines Law hotels in the Westchester Village frequented by the soldiers in main Street near Westchester Avenue they visited the hotel of William Krumsiek. From a description Krumsiek thought he remembered the Soldier but could not Tell his name. He went to the stable and identified the dead Soldier As one who had been drinking in his place with a Corporal late on monday night. According to the police Krumsiek said that on monday night the dead Man and a Corporal entered the hotel and went to the parlor where they sat at a table at which were sitting mrs. Emma Chase a chambermaid in the hotel and a civilian whose name he did not know. He did not see much of them during the evening except when they were served with drinks.
