Thursday, August 23, 1 990 STATE LOCAL The Lincoln Star Pag 5 Inmate says he knows where Cufshall is Private investigator believes story may be 'grandstanding. From The Associated Press Norfolk police Investigators have interviewed an Iowa prison inmate who says he knows the location of the body of Jill Cutshall, a Norfolk girl who disappeared three years ago. Norfolk Police Chief Bill Mizner said two investigators interviewed the inmate in Newton, Iowa, on Tuesday. Wednesday, Mizner said investigators began comparing the story with information already received. Mizner said he didnt plan a search Wednesday or Thursday. He refused comment on the credibility of the inmate's story, saying it would be premature. Mizner said several other promising tips have failed to "take us where we thought it would." Private investigator Roy Stephens, who has worked on the disappearance of Jill Cutshall said he doubts the inmate's story, but he said he believes police were given enough information to begin a search for the girl's remains. Stephens declined to name his source. STEPHENS SAID the information comes from a man serving time for theft, but he declined to name the inmate, saying the man may be "grand- Little train that couldn't (leave) finally does Old 710 really is gone now. The locomotive that has been long awaiting its move from Pioneers Park finally was taken out of the city by John Lacey and his crew from Shelton, Neb, mid-afternoon on Wednesday. Carole Eddins, who has been working on the train's move for the city, tracked the train to Bennel After a short stop there, the train was headed west on Nebraska Highway 2. Using a 120-foot rig with 62 tires, Lacey is driving the train to Mount Pleasant, Iowa, where it will be restored. An antique farm implement show is being held in that city so Lacey also may encounter some logistical problems there, Eddins said. The train is due back in the Haymar-ket district on Nov. 20. Moving the train, which loaded on the trailer weighed 108 tons, has proven to be a venture plagued with problems. On Wednesday, after Lacey had managed to move the train as far as just west of 33rd Street on Highway 2, Lacey discovered that a link in his rig was broken. Lacey's crews spent most of the day fixing it, using a crane to lift the locomotive while they partially dismantled the rig to work on it, One bystander watching the progress Wednesday morning predicted it would take 710 days to get Old 710 to Iowa. Lacey said it will take a day and a half. If all goes well Lipovsky named to Commonwealth prosecution team Deputy Lancaster County Attorney Jan Lipovsky has been selected to work as an assistant U.S. Attorney in the case involving funds missing from the receivership of Commonwealth Savings Co., County Attorney Mike Heavican and U.S. Attorney Ronald Lahners announced Wednesday. Lipovsky will share prosecution duties with Assistant U.S. Attorney Steve Russell, the officials stated in a pressrelease. A federal bank fraud charge has been filed against special deputy Commonwealth receiver Kent C. Johnson, 32, of Omaha. The charge alleges Johnsod, who has turned himself in to federal authorities, embezzled nearly $1.3 million from receivership accounts. Lincoln police and FBI investigators were continuing Wednesday with work on a coordinated investigation, and were assembling evidence for a federal grand jury examining the matter. Investigators were subpoenaing bank records, auditing accounts and tracing money trails, Heavican and Lahners stated in the release. Bereuter names committee to find judicial candidates Rep. Doug Bereuter has named an eight-member committee to screen candidates for nomination to replace Warren Urbom as US. district judge. Urbom has announced he will retire at the end of the year. The committee will review the qualifications of potential nominees and will submit a recommendation, Bereuter said. He said he would expect to forward that name to the Justice Department and the White House as his recommendation. The president will nominate Urbom's successor. Lincoln attorney James Hewitt win serve as chairman of Bere liter's committee. Other members are: Alice Ditt-man of Lincoln, G. Alan Dunlap of Mil-ford, Karen Flowers of Lincoln, Richard Hoch of Nebraska City, Robert "Dick" Moodie of West Point, Emil Reutzel of Norfolk and Larry Ruth of Lincoln. The committee's deadline for nominations is Sept 11 i standing." CutshalTs mother, Joyce, said from Norfolk on Wednesday she is trying to be calm in the face of new information. "Until they can tell me that what he is saying is legitimate, I'm going to try and keep my emotions on an even keel," Mrs. Cutshall said. Cutshall said she has some hope her daughter might still be alive. "I still have visions of one day her just running to me with her long blonde hair, this great big hug we both share. That Is really just the mother side of me. I really wish that could be. But I have to be realistic about this," Cutshall said. A PRISONER at the Riverview Re lease Center in Newton, Iowa, whom au-' thorities have not identified, claims to have once worked with David C. Phelps, who has been charged with kidnapping in the disappearance of Jill Cutshall. Phelps, 26, a former Norfolk resident, was arrested in June while he was living in Perry, Iowa. He is awaiting trial in Nebraska. Mizner said two Nebraska investigators interviewed the Inmate on Tuesday. Stephens said there are puzzling points that make him doubt the inmate's story. The inmate apparently claimed to know Phelps as David Cooper, a name that has never come up in the investiga tion, Stephens said. AND POLICE officials in Perry said they'd never heard of the inmate, who claimed to have lived there, Stephens said, adding that he knew the inmate's name but wouldn't release it. "Maybe he's trying to cut a sweet deal" on his sentence, Stephens said of the inmate. "I heard that his conscience got the better of him, but I'm having a hard time believing that," he said. Cutshall disappeared from the steps of her babysitter's home on Aug. 13, 1987, when she was 9. Her clothes were found in a wildlife area three months later. The case was nationally publicized, but the girl's body has not been found. DALE CARNEGIE COURSE Presented by Paul IV.
