PAGE EIGHT BI.YTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, JUI,Y 18, 1946 Four Questioned In Girl's Murder Body of Daughter Of Planter Found Near Byram, Miss. JACKSON,'Miss., July 18. (UP) — Police today questioned four persons in connection with the brutal rape-slaying of pretty . Caihcrin-3 Rossic, shy brunette daughter of a Crystal Springs, Miss., planter. Her badly decomposed body was found yesterday by a wec^id'i shanty near Byram, Miss., H miles south of here. She had been missing since July 4. Police arrested Mr. and Mrs. nob- ble Gadriy. of Crystal Springs, and a cousin, Sobci't Gaddy, who had accompanied the slain girl on a wild !ast rids through the "Gold Ciast" pleasure district near Jackson on July 4. Also held as a material witne.s.s was J. C. Powell, a Negro hnnrt at the Caddy's place. The 21-year-old girl had been the object of a two-week sl:itrwk!e search which ended yesterday when A. K. Owens, a store owner near Byi-am, notified Hinds County ''Jackson) sheriff's olllce that a- body had been discovered near Ids place. Officers went to the scene and found the (n'rl's crumpled bodv lying near a Negro shanty where it had apparently been tossed. A Irail of blood led from the calm to (lie vicinity of the body .ind kniie wounds were found on llv: vi'Mitn. Identity of the girl was established through (he tattered remains n! h?r clothing. Hinds County Peace Justice J. M. B?ll said lie ordered Powell hold because the Negro's statement did not jibe with his employers' original account of the girl's disappearance. According to the Caddys' sl.ile- mant, Miss Rossie had accompanied them to a Fourth of July lour of joints along the Gold coast.across the river from bonc-drv Jackson. On the way back to Crystal Springs, their car. they said, careened into a ditch and while they tried to extricate it, an argument developed over who was goin.; to drive the rest of the way home. The Caddys' statement said Miss Rossie then'hitched a ride in a truck wiih two men and (hat was th» last they saw of her. Deputy SlicriJT Albert Jo.iej said the girl apparently had been criminally assaulted and killed the night, of her disappearance. Her parents, Mr. and Mi's. C. C. Uossie. had offered 51,000 reward for information leading to whereabouts of their daughter.
