First Shotting In Mason City PROSECUTION OF TRIO DISCUSSED Additional Information on Bandits Is Obtained at Emmetsburg. EMMETSBURG, May 3.--North Iowa authorities today were making plans for prosecuting the three confessed torture robbers held in the Palo county jail here. The three, Estel Anders, 45, Decatur, 111., formerly of Rutland; Joe Thilges, 47, Whittemore, and Ole Thorsland, 37, Bode, admitted the farm thefts in North Iowa which the past four years netted them $18,000. No charges had been filed yet, as additional information was obtained. County attorneys, sheriffs and victims of the gang in North Iowa were in Emmetsburg Wednesday interviewing the trio. It is thought charges will be filed as soon as possible after officers in this part of the state hold a consultation regarding the various crimes' committed by the men, which may tange from robbery to second degree murder. Leo Bench Accomplice. The prisoners, in their confessions, named Leo Besch of Bode, now serving 10 years at Fort Madison on a statutory offense, as one of their accomplices. Another, whose identity has not been revealed by officers, is at large. Farms robbed by the gang were the H. F. Gneuppel farm near Mallard last November, where $5,900 was taken; the C. C. Robinson farm near Algona, where $6 was taken in February, followed by the death of the aged Mr. Robinson, presumably from shock and injuries, a few days later; the Barney Kruger farm near Bode, where $5,000 was obtained four years ago, and the O. J. Eisenman farm near Woden, with ?7,000 stolen, two years ago, the bandits said. The victims at'the latter place claimed $15,000 was taken. Was Badly Beaten. Nick Thilges, farmer near Whittemore, was badly beaten last December by members of the gang who suspected him of having some farm sale money with him. Anders, whose arrest occurred first, after he had been returned from Decatur, HI., to Forest City on a forgery charge, was suspected by local officers when they learned that he chewed snuff. In the Gnuep- pel farm robbery, members of the family said that one bandit nervously chewed snuff all during the robbery. He also carried a gun minus a clip, they recalled, and a similar gun was found at Joe Thilges' house in Whittemore, which linked the two men to the crime. Names of the others were soon obtained by Sheriff . Bert Montgomery of Palo Alto county, who obtained their ctofessions. ;-:·.
