18 GREELEY TRIBUNE Friday, Oc(. 24, 196 Police Seek Nearsighted Suspect in Tate Slayings By JERRY COHEN Th« Lot Angttti Tlmt« LOS ANGELES -- Police arc seeking a nearsighted person with an unusually small, "volleyball-shaped" head us a suspect in the Sharon Tate multiple murder. Detectives said Thursday they don't know his name or anything else about him -- es- cept that he left his horn-rim eyeglasses at the scene of the Aug. 9 slaying ot five persons in the upper-class Bel Air area. Los Angeles Homicide Lt. Robert Holder displayed the glasses at a press conference Thursday and said it was his opinion that they probably were "knocked off" during a struggle with one of the victims. A process of elimination established, he said, that the glasses belonged to neither Sliss Tate nor any of the four slain with her at the estate rented by the actress and her husband, film director Roman Polanski, who was in Euro at the time. The glasses were found shoi ly after the murders inside I home where the bodies of tw of the victims, Miss Tate ar hair stylist, Jay Scbring, we discovered, according to He] er. Bodies of the other victims- coffee heiress Abigail Folge Voilyck Frokowsky, a fil colony hanger-on, and Stephe Parent, an 18-year-old frier of the estate's young careta er--were found on the ground Parents found shot in his ca near the estate's gate, appa ently as he was leaving 11 cottage of the caretaker, wl did not know of the murdei until he left his cottage afte daybreak. Holder characterized 11 glasses as a "key" clue an said the glasses belonged to male. "They were the type woman would not choose," h said. The frames were shaped t adapt to an unusually sma and remarkably round head, o "vollcy-ball-shsped," as Hoe described it. The spectacles were manu factured by the American 0] tical than Corp., which has mor 200 branches across th nation. A spokesman indicate the likelihood of tracing them t a single outlet is remote. It may be helpful to police however, that only about 1 per cent of the lenses made b his firm arc of plastic, th spokesman said. Parents fro quently buy them for childre and active young adults an athletes often wear them be cause they are break-resistan The lenses on the glasse were scratched, indicating the were possibly a year or tw old, Hocft said. said they constituted the "phys ical evidence" which he s ' late last week could "point In the direction of (lie killers. He repealed that "no def nite evidence" exists that mor than one person committed th crime. But from "the physici facts" detectives deduce tw or more persons were involvec The glasses have amber rims are of a common Americai make and have prescriptTM lenses corrected for a person "who would have difficulty getting along without them.' The lenses arc made of plaslic which is relatively uncom mon. Indecipherable smudges wer found on the spectacles but n blood stains. During (lie press conference Helder said the owner was person with a small or mod erate-sized head. He said h did not know the sex of th owner.
