WITNESS my hand as such Clerk, and the seal of said Court this the ?th day of July, 1966. GERALDINE LISTON, Clerk By Geraldini Ltoton (SEAL) 7-11, 18, 25, 8-1 never kept a job long, had few roots. An FBI courier rushed from Washington with Speck's finger- nrints. They matched the ones found at the townhouse. Miss Amurao, hysterical after her long night of terror, roused from heavy sedation Friday morning. Detectives visited her in her hospital room. They showed her about 200 shotos from police files. She shook her head at each one. Then, casually, a detective landed her three more, including the one of Speck. The 23-year-old Filipino exchange student looked hard at one of the three. She tapped the center one. "That's the man." Detectives centered their search in the neighborhood where the cabbie had dropped Speck. Showing photographs of Speck to barkeeps and prostitutes, they tracked him tavern by tavern to a skid row hotel near Chicago's Loop. The hotel clerk told the investigators Speck had checked out about a half hour ago. Detectives staked out the hotel. The next afternon, Saturday, Cmdr. Francis Flanagan, chief of the homicide division, announced that a murder warrant had been issued naming Speck. and broadcast his description to the nation. Until that moment speculation in Chicago was that the police had no suspect and not much chance of getting one because the clues, Flanagan had insisted, were pitifully few. But now the police were worried; Speck's trail had gone cold. Unknown to the detectives manning the stakeout, Speck had gone to another hotel — about two miles away—where he had a room under the name B. Brian. His police file showed a string of aliases, but that was a new one. It was as B. Brian, a skid row drifter, that Speck was admitted to the county hospital at 12:30 a.m. Sunday, his arm spurting blood from a slash wound police said he inflicted himself. The doctor was astonished when he saw Speck's widely publicized tattooes and looked into the face he had just seen in the newspaper. "Call the police," he said to is nurse.
