The top of the front page has a two column heading: "Budd Girl's Body Found; Killed by Painter in 1928" with subhead. (see) First report coverage continues on page 3 with rare photo of Fish. (see) I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not, probably because he committed his crimes locally. Rare as such.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 pages, light toning at the margins, nice condition.
