WEDNESDAY, JULY 15. RI.YTHEVn.I.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NIN1 .ondon Sex Slayer Df Seven Hanged By TOM OCIIII/TREE CONDON (#}—John Reginald Halay Christie, 55. the Notting Hill strangler who confessed he led seven women but might have rderod more, was hanged today Pentonvllle Prison. Even as he died, a controversy over whether the mild- peaking transport worker and irtimp auxiliary cop was guilty a baby's murder for which an- er man wa'> hanged three years o. •f-he case of the insanity-pleading olesaler in killing .who walled his victim^' bodies in his apart- ent or buried them in his garden, d shocked Britain as no other urder spree since J act the pper's. A crowd ot about 200 persons, hiding many school children, re gathered outside the prison A truckload of police waited ar the gate but there was no turbance. The continuing controversy hinged on Christie's confession at his trial that he strangled a nei^i- bor's wife three years ago. The neighbor, Timothy Evans, was accused of killing both his wife and baby daughter but was convicted and handed only for the infant's death Christie's confession aroused speculation thai Christie also killed the baby, though he denied this. Queen's Counsel John Scott Henderson, fitter a secret government inquiry, tinnounced yesterday that Christie had lied in his confession and that he did not kill Mrs, Evans. Evans' mother and two sisters remained unconvinced and wrote Queen Elisabeth II last night, asking a public investigation. Seventeen Laborite members of the Parliament also presented an llth-hour motion demanding Christie's execution be stayed so he could testify at such an investigation. The death sentence was carried out on schedule, however. lore Brings'Saucer' Reports ungary Makes Peace * Offer to Tito BUDAPEST, Hungary 1*1 — An- her Coniform partner has tak- a concilatory step toward Yu- slavia.
