Meanwhile Dr H A. McMurray, Westmoreland county coroner, said that an inquest into the '·luider- suicide would be held m the cotut- house at Greensburg sometime next week.

Ganoc said she added "He (Mcese) never supported my daughter and only in the last ycven years was he interested enough to . come and see her " A week ago, Mrs Hollis told the chief, Mecse said that he "wouldnt *· live more than a week." At the time, Mrs Hollis said she laughed off his comment with "Oh bosh ' Neighbors corroborated Mrs Hollis' story that Mccse long ago knew the girl was his daughter, Mrs L R. Pool said "Mocse had known Nellie was his daughter for many years but thu; dispute between the parents kept them apart" Mrs Pool said Mecse often remarked that his daughter was "getting awfully pretty " Reports that Mccse had fallen ir love with the girl and was unaware that she was his daughter were stoutly denied by his relatives m Redstone township A spokesman for the man s family acclurcd that Meesc "had supporto the girl since the day she v,as born and Knew all the time she was hi daujjhter The report that he was in lo\e w?th the girl was hatched up t make the story sensational " Surviving Meese arc his parents Mr and Mrs. Jesse Mcese, a oroth er, Oscar, and a sister, Lottie, home Intimate fncnds of the family sal Mecse had been mentally ill for th past year.
