SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER », 19W Team of 50 Investigators Quietly Continue Search For Kidnaper of Ruotolo Child BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) — headquarters. Men come in and This room, once used for a New Haven County detective a day. They are working fcir a solution* lo the kldnap-murdcr of a chubby little Infant — G-weelc-pld Cynthia Ruotolo, daughte' of an fSO-a- week paint.salesman and his wife, who have lost two previous infant children. One died of pneumonia; the other in an accident. Nearly a month ago, Cynthia was taken from her carriage in a department store and thrown, apparently shortly afterward, into * lake a mile away in this New Haven suburban area. Three boys found the body five days later, sluf/ed into a plastic bag. and weighted down with a rock. Suffocation An autopsy showed she died of suffocation, but police couldn't tell whether from drowning or from being stuffed in the air-light bag. She also had a bruise on the Jeft side of her head. But a pathologist said the bruise, suffered before she died, did not cause death. Police say they have rehashed the case frcm start to finish repeatedly. Cynthia's mother Eleanor Ruotolo. 33, and a neighbor went to the store Sept. 1 and parked not far from the foyer. Mrs. Ruotolo put Cynthia In a folding carriage and attached a heavy netting over the top. She wheeled the carriage into the foyer. Then she and the neighbor, Mrs. Paul Rebucci, went off to shop. . "We went, in together and shopped for about 15 minutes," Mrs. Rebucc! said. "She got a toy for the baby, plastic bells to hang across the crib. < "After that she checked the' baby and wj had a hot dog at the snack bar." Mrs. Rcbuccl said Mrs. Ruotolo then went to the second floor of the store while she went to the men's department to visit her husband, a salesman there. "Finally, we went to get the baby and leave. Mrs. Ruotolo pushed the carriage out to the sidewalk. Out there she 'ifted the | netting and we discovered the baby was gone. "It's pretty confused from that point. She didn't scream, but she became incoherent. She went frantically looking for the baby and she said, 'Where's my baby?' " Police came shortly afterward ind went swiftly "through their routing — set-tine up roadblocks, dragfrins ponds, combing :he woods. 4,«M In Store Store officials estimate there were 4,000 people that day at the store. From half a dozen of those people, police pieced together a description of a woman carrying a baby "awkwardly" across the store parking lot or taking a baby out of a carriage. She was dark, short and stocky, they said. Detective Edmund Flanagan says his 50-man te^m will question 1.100 people who were ac the store Sept. 1. Their names were taken from credit purchase lists or from checks cashed at the store. Flanagan said the Investigators will try everything to solve the case. It may look like ,a to—, he said, but added: "We're not back where we started from. We've cleared up a lot of angles but we ca^i't say what they are."
