B. Howard said Friday that Perry Eugene Griffin, 24, former Adonis, Mo., minister, and his wife's sister, Madge Copeland, 21, of Creston, Iowa, had made written confessions to an abduction and two robberies in three states. Howard said .the couple told him they had visited seven states since they left Creston a week ago. They were arrested here Thursday night. Their confessions, Howard declared, solved the abduction last Saturday night of LeRoy Ullrey, Missouri Valley college student at Harrisonville in the motor car he ·was occupying. Ullrey was released near Carthage. The car, which belonged to Will Hargus, Cass county prosecutor, was in the couple's possession, Howard said. Had Hitch-Hiked. They had hitch-hiked from Creston to Harrisonville. Howard said they also confessed a filling station holdup at Bartelsville, Okla., Sunday, and another at Little Rock, Ark., Monday. During their weeK on the road, they also visited Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky and Illinois. Mrs. Griffin and her children are at the Creston honte of her father, Sherman Copeland. The two were arrested at the home of another of the Copeland sisters, Mrs. Ira Garrison. They are to be prosecuted in Cass county and by the federal government, Howard declared. "Had to Be Crazy." "Why did you do it?" Howard said he asked Griffin. "I must have been crazy," he quoted Griffin as replying. "I knew it was against the Lord--you know I believe in Him and I know Madge believed in Him. We had to be cr^zy." The officer said Griffin asserted he had been worried over financial matters since last December, when a filling station he operated near Adonis tailed. That caused him to leave his church (Oak Grove Baptist) and go on an indefinite visit in Creston.
