(UPI) -- Four persons, including the sheriff and a deputy, were killed and 11 persons were injured, two critically, Tuesday night when a bomb exploded in the Mason County Jail. Police said the bomb was brought into the jail by a man whose wife had been accused of murdering the couple's baby. State Police Cpl. J. L. FHzwaler said Bruce and Harriet Sisk were killed instantly in the explosion in Mrs. Sisk'scell. Also killed in the blast was Mason County Deputy Sheriff Kenneth Dale Love. Sheriff Elvin "Pete" Wedge died early today in a hospital. "God it was a mess," said Fitzwater. "The jail is a shambles. I heard the explosion and came running, they were still carrying the victims out when I arrived." Fitzwater said Sisk arrived at the jail about 10:50 p.m. with a sawed-off shotgun and a suitcase, demanding to be placed in the cell with his wife. "We really don't know what happened after that," said the officer. "One of my men, who was injured, said they were discussing just what todoabout the situation when the blast went off." Filzwater said the explosion occurred about 11:30 p.m. "They were able to get another, who was in the cell with Mrs. Sisk out, and also removed the trusties," he said. Mrs. Sisk, IB, was held for the murder of her two-monlh- old daughter whose body was found last weekend in a freshly dug grave near her rural home. Police began a search after they had been told the baby had been abducted. The jail is located in the basement of the three-story Mason County Courthouse. Po lice said the blast knocked out windows in the building and tore a huge hole in the cell where the Sisks had been visiting. The injured; including six law enforcement officials and five prisoners, were taken lo Pleasant Valley Hospital in this Ohio River Community. Listed in critical condition were Deputy Sheriff Ernie Hesson and Bruce Wallace, an off-duty Ohio State Highway patrolman stationed at the Gatlia County outpost.

A county forest ranger sent lo the area to fight a brush fire discovered the grave and two of the bodies and summoned sheriff deputies who uncovered the other three. The bodies appeared to be of a woman about ftfl, a girl about 18 and 1 three younger boys, unidentified but possibly members of the same family. They were sent to the stale medical examiners office in Chapel Hill for autopsies. "Our agents arc just com- pletely in the dark now. Everybody just assumes it was a whole family," said Stale Attorney General Rufus L. Edmisten. Edmisten said first reports indicated all five had fractured skulls. "It looks like, preliminarily, that they've been beaten to death, that the perpetrator killed them in one place, drove to another and placed them in the grave and atlempted to burn them," said Edmisten. Edmisten, reached by telephone in Raleigh, said officers speculated that the killer accidentally set fire to the area while pouring gasoline on (he bodies and fled. A five-gallon gasoline can and a pitchfork were found at the scene. Stale Bureau of Investigation agents, sheriff's deputies ant highway patrolmen roped of the area and worked until dark in an effort to locate clues and get a lead to "finding the actual crime scene." Ronald Brickhouse, the fores' ranger, had gone to the area, Â£ reseeded stand of pine trees off North Carolina highway 94 about six miles south of town, after smoke was spotted from a fire lower a mile away. "! had been by the fire to try and tell where lo put the equipment when it arrived," he said. "On the way back out by the fire I saw a pile of dirt and walked over and there were two bodies lying in the hole.'
