Ht&ALD Monday, Jan. 15, 1959 Police Look for Killing Motive in Death of Girl MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Stale criminologists and Minneapolis police combined efforts today as they sought a clear picture of the motive behind the brutal beating of four children, including a 12- year-old girl bludgeoned lo death. The state crime laboratory was testing tissues to learn if the dead girl, Patricia Gross, was sexually assaulted by her assailant. The county coroner's office said there were indications she had been raped. Police detectives, meanwhile, resumed their questioning of Glenn Holscher, 25, a Minneapolis commercial artist and an ex-convict. Capt. Joe Rusinko said Holscher signed a statement that will be turned over to a grand jury this week. No charges have been filed. Didn't Remember Rusinko said Holscher told officers he didn't remember beating the children "but I must have." "It was like a dream," Holscher was quoted by Rusinko. "All I saw was faces . . . there was blood on my hands." Holscher was arrested in his home two hours after the attacks early Saturday in the Gross house. Mrs. Irene Gross, * 36-year-old divorcee, was not at home. One police theory was that the assailant panicked when Patricia began screaming and then bludgeoned the girl; her sister, Colleen, 8, her brother, Robert, 15, and Mavis Balau, 7, an overnight guest at the Gross home. Colleen and the Balau girl suffered skull fractures and are in critical condition. Robert was discharged after treatment in a hospital for head injuries. Drinking Companions Another possibility being investigated was that the intruder came to the house intending to whip Mrs. Gross, to settle another woman's grudge against her. In custody for questioning were a man and two women, identified by Holscher as his drinking companions shortly before the attacks. Rusinko said one of the women had spoken angrily at the time against Mrs. Gross, accusing the divorcee of being responsible for getting her arrested on a charge of buying liquor for a minor. Rusinko said Holscher told of going to the Gross home shortly I after midnight and bumping into someone in the kitchen. The former convict said he couldn't remember anything after that until he was driving home and saw specks of blood on his hands and clothing. Holscher acknowledged he had been out with Mrs. Gross on occasion, police said.
