Page 32 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Sunday, March 20, 1988 Mecham Gets Mixed Reviews For Impeachment Testimony PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) — Gov. Evan Mecham's supporters sang an optimistic "When Evan Comes Marching Home Again" outside the Arizona Capitol while the governor, fighting for his political life, was drawing mixed reviews as star witness at his impeachment trial. "1 think he hurt himself quite a bit," said Democratic Sen. Jesus "Chuey" Higuera after Mecham concluded three days of testimony by taking back an accusation that his former security chief stole documents. "I did not have the proof and I do not have the proof now," Mecham conceded when pressed by senators for the basis of his accusations against Department of Public Safety Lt. Beau Johnson. "It looks bad," Higuera said of Mecham's performance. "It looks bad any time anyone gets up there and doesn't tell the truth." But the Republican governor's lawyer, Jerris Leonard, had a different view. "I think he did a very good job. He came out direct and sincere," said Leonard. "The thrust is you've got a man who simply wasn't being told what the story was, assuming the story is true." The allegation of document theft came up Thursday, when Mecham testified that he had "had complete confirmation that he (Johnson) was the one" who took a report on the DPS from an aide's desk and turned it over to the DPS. Mecham testified that he had an "informer" within DPS. Johnson denied taking the report, and the DPS deputy director, Lt. Col. Gary Phelps, told senators Friday it actually was taken by Mecham aide Lee Watkins, the former state prison construction chief. Mecham, the first U.S. governor to be impeached in six decades, is charged with obstruction of justice, concealing a $350,000 campaign loan and misusing $80,000 from a state Authorities Identify Remains Found In Desert EL PASO, Texas (AP) Police say bleached bones uncovered in the desert near the site where the bodies of five young women were found buried are those of a woman who had a history of drug and prostitution arrests. Using dental records, forensic experts Friday identified the woman as Ivy Susanna Williams, 23, an El Paso resident who was arrested a year ago on charges of prostitution and heroin possession. Ms. Williams, who police say frequently moved from motel to motel, was never reported missing. Homicide detectives investigating the deaths of the other five women are "still trying to piece together her (Ms. PQLSINELLI'S Monday Night Special Spaghetti Dinner 2 forl Includes: Spogh. & Mcotholh, salad, bread & butter, croutons & cheese. 2 5 (All You Can Eat) 1139 Erie Ave. 722-9851 Williams') activities," said police spokesman Sgt. John Loy. Police dogs searched the desert area around Ms. Williams' grave, but found nothing Friday. A couple collecting aluminum cans stumbled on the exposed bones Monday and reported their find to police. Authorities do not know when or how Ms. Williams died, Loy said. The fact that she wore braces simplified identifying her remains, he said. The five women whose bodies were found last fall have been identified as Karen Baker, 20; Maria Rosa Casio, 24; Angelica Frausto, 17; Dawn Smith, 14; and Desiree Wheatley, 15.

All were El Paso residents except Ms. Casio, who was from the Dallas suburb of Addison. Police have said the deaths could be the work of a serial killer. Each of the six bodies has been found near dirt trails and behind two or three creosote bushes in an area on the outskirts of El Paso, about 18 miles northeast of downtown. Ms. Williams was jailed April 25, 1987, on a charge of possession of heroin and was released on $3,000 bond, according to El Paso County Jail records. On March 18, 1987, Ms. Williams was charged with prostitution and solicitation of a beverage and was released from jail after paying $500 bail, according to jail records.

Testimony so far has involved only the first charge. The trial is expected to turn to the second allegation this week. The obstruction charge centers on an alleged death threat within Mecham's administration and an allegation that Mecham tried to thwart an investigation of the threat. Mecham, 63, gave this account of the crucial events of Nov. 12, 1987: "Two somewhat excitable people had a verbal exchange and somewhere along the line there were those who determined they should make something out of it. It's a total manufactured thing." ' Many other witnesses' memories were significantly different. Peggy Griffith, the Mecham loyalist who first reported the alleged threat, said Watkins made derogatory comments to her about Mecham's former close adviser, Donna Carlson, who was about to testify before a grand jury investigating Mecham's campaign finances.
