Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Tuesday, March 22, 1988 Page? Indiana Report Marrow From Wayward Brother No Match INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A leukemia victim remains optimistic that doctors will find another option, such as a partial bone marrow match, after learning that his bone marrow is not suitable for transplant with his brother. Stephen L. Chapman, 38, of Oolitic said Monday he was disappointed about the news, but realized the odds involved. "We'll come up with something else," he said. "It's pretty difficult, but I wasn't counting on it either way." Chapman said doctors were checking into a partial match that was located through the national marrow registry. "You kind of start counting on things and then you have a big letdown," he said. "I've just made up my rnind riot to count on anything." Chapman's leukemia is in remission. "The next best step is unknown, but there are choices," said Dr. Richard S. Fayssoux, the hematology and oncology specialist who is treating Chapman. "The chances for him to live longer would have been better (with the transplant), but it's not like he's guaranteed a 50-year life with the transplant," the Indianapolis doctor said. "It depends on your perspective. Do you want to spend your money now or do you want to invest it and go for getting rich?" said Fayssoux, referring to the marrow treatment's chances for success. The patient's brother, Randy Chapman, 32, was located last month on the streets of Miami. The younger Chapman, who earns his living as a test subject for medical experiments, initially refused to submit to tests to determine whether his marrow matched that of his ill brother. • He eventually accepted an Indiana philanthropist's offer of $1,000 to take the tests, the results of which were sent to Indiana University; Medical Center in Indianapolis last Wednesday.' The brother, who left home 14 years ago, would have received an additional $2,000 had there been- a match and subsequent transplant operation.

(AP) Judge John Westhafer overruled the jury and sentenced to death a West Chester, Ohio, man in the 1986 slaying of a Columbus woman. The jury last month recommended life in prison for Stuart S. Kennedy in the slaying of Michelle Seagraves, 22, the mother of a 3-year-old boy. Kennedy, 27, was convicted of murder, felony murder kidnapping, felony murder robbery, kidnapping and robbery. Donald Lee Jackson, 31, of Columbus, faces the same charges in an April trial.

Kennedy drove her car to Moores Hill, Ind., as Jackson followed in his car. Ms. Seagraves was beaten, strangled and shot in a field in Moores Hill, according to trial testimony. Seagraves' car was then used in an $88,000 bank robbery, prosecutors said. Franklin County Prosecutor, Michael Miller, who helped present the case against Kennedy, had argued in favor of the death penalty. Cliver Pulls Prank; No Escape Tried? SULLIVAN, Ind. (AP) Former Indiana State Police trooper Jerry W. Cliver was probably maintaining his reputation as a prankster, rather than plotting another escape when officials found cloth strips concealed in his cell, a sheriff's deputy says. Sheriff John Waterman said Monday pieces of a pair of boxer shorts torn into 20-inch strips were confiscated from Cliver's cell at the Sullivan County Jail during an inspection Sunday. Waterman's chief deputy, John Chesterfield, said Cliver might have used the cords to simply play a trick on jail personnel. He also said Cliver feigned surprise when asked about the cords, despite their obvious locations. "It was like, 'Oh, how did those get there," Chesterfield said. Waterman said Florida State Prison officials had warned Sullivan authorities of "some of the tricks he's pulled since he's been down there." The strips had been knotted into "choke cords" that could be wrapped around a victim's throat or hands, Waterman said. Cliver denied knowledge of the cords, but Waterman said the former trooper is the only person who could have hidden them in the cell. Jail officials found two cords under Cliver's mattress and a third beneath a towel tied to the bars of Cliver's windowless cell. Cliver, a trooper for almost 10 years, was flown to Indiana last Thursday and faces charges of murder, attempted murder and escape. The Dugger native escaped from the Sullivan jail in October 1985, just 16 days before he was to stand trial for seriously wounding his former wife, Jerri Lynn Cliver, and killing her boyfriend, Donald L. Clayton of Linton, in March 1984. Cliver, 36, was eventually arrested again in Florida, where he shot a highway patrolman who stopped him for a minor traffic violation. Cliver was serving a 46-year sentence in Florida when he was brought back to Indiana last week. Waterman said officials at the prison in Starke, Fla., had caught Cliver hiding lengths of wire rolled inside a deodorant stick. Waterman described Cliver as a man who "doesn't have anything to lose." The sheriff added, however, that Cliver has been congenial since his return to Indiana. "He said it's like the Holiday Inn compared to what he had down there," Waterman said. The sheriff said he gave Cliver a tour of the jail, after which the inmate remarked, "Boy, lots of changes have been made since I left here last time." Cliver spends his time reading and exercising in his cell. Of-; ficials have speculated he will go on trial this summer. Cliver's brother, Bill, and defense lawyer Doug Followell have both visited Cliver, Waterman said. Also, the sheriff said, several people have come to the jail to ask for Cliver's autograph. •NOTICE* Wolf Service Center Is Extending Their Hours: MONDAY-FRIDAY 6:A.M. to8:P.M.
