Death of Typist is Baffling to the Police
Hurled from Elevator, Girl is
Found Dead in Hall of Business Building.
New York, March 11--A large force of detectives have been assigned to clear up the baffling mystery of the death of Miss Katherine Bethune, the beautiful young typist employed in the bureau of municipal research, whose body was found in the hall of a business building on Broadway shortly before dawn. It is the theory of the police that Miss Bethune was hurled from an automobile.
A photograph found in her home included herself and an unknown girl friend. The police are seeking to identify the other girl in the hope that she knows something of the tragedy.
