They already had made a mistake in reporting the confession of another one of the kidnapers, Carl Austin Hall. The identification difficulty stemmed from a rare coincidence—the existence of two Bonnie Brown Heady's. In announcing the kidnapers' arrests Wednesday, the FBI picked the wrong one. Wrong Woman Identified It said the Mrs. Heady taken into custody was the widow of a professional gunman and had a long criminal record—including arrests for prostitution, aiding a prisoner to escape, and harboring a fugitive. A check of fingerprints showed up the error. In a statement Thursday, an FBI spokesman admitted the criminal record released Wednesday "did not pertain to the Bonnie Brown Heady now in custody." In reporting Hall's confession, the FBI originally quoted him as saying he had killed the 6-year-old Greenlease boy. It later had to concede he actually had not admitted the slaying.
