TAGE 16 j Strangler Kills Boston Secretary Boston (LTD A young secretary was found strangled in her Back Bay apartment yesterday, believed the eighth victim of a maniacal killer who has terrorized the area since last June. The body of 23-year-old Miss Patricia Bissette, clad only in a pajama top, was found in her bed by a janitor who had been asked to investigate why she had not reported for work. The Earrotine was the second in a one-mile area in little more than three ' weeks. Police Lt. ; John Donovan Patricia said Miss Bissette had been strangled with a nylon stocking and possibly a slip. Medical Examiner Dr. Michael A. Luongo said a preliminary examination revealed she had not been sexually molested. Miss Bissette came to Boston four months ago from Middlebury, Vt. LIKE MOST of the other victims, she lived alone. There were no signs of forced entry and the killer apparently locked the door behind him when he left the first floor room. Miss Bissette worked as a secretary-receptionist for Engineering Systems Inc., of Boston. The janitor. Christian Van Olst, was asked to open the girl's apartment by Jules A. Rothman, treasurer of Engineering systems. He said he became worried when Miss Bissette did not report for work and failed to telephone that she would be absent. Parents Face Lie Tests In Child's Death A former Carmel police chief and his wife have agreed to take lie detector tests Thursday, homicide detectives said yesterday as they continued their investigation of the death of the c o u p 1 e's 1-year-old daughter. Detective Sgt. Floyd Swails reported that Mr. and Mrs. Jack A. Smith, 5732 East 31st Street, had agreed to the tests to support their contention that their daughter, Jacalynne Rae Smith, was injured fatally when she was jumped on accidentally by their 2-year-old son, Anthony Allen Smith. SWAILS SAID the couple told him that the girl was lying j on her back on the living room ; floor when the boy jumped on her off a sfa. The Smiths brought the girl j to Methodist Hospital Christmas Eve, and the child died less than two hours later of blood poisoning and laceration of the pancreas, police said. Swails said an autopsy showed that the girl could have died as a result of a beating or of an accident similar to one described by the Smiths. A former Lawrence policeman, Smith was chief of the Carmel police department from July, 1960, to September, 1961.
