THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17,193S. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNKLLSVILL-JU, FA. PAGE SEVEN. FORMER BROWNSVILLE YOUTH IMSISTS HE KILLED TEXAS MAN (6- Kobcrt (Buster) Evans, 28, former Brownsville youth with an amazing background of adventure, is in trouble again. Or it he isn't in trouble, it isn't his fault, "Buster," now an automobile salesman at McKecsport, has insisted for the last several weeks that he killed a man in a Texas filling station holdup last fall. Allegheny county authorities to whom he voluntarily "confessed," have spent a lot of money on telegrams and telephone calls to Texas but can't seem to learn about any holdup that fits .his description. They think he wants n trip to Texas and they have indicated they are not going to cooperate. A trip to Texas would be nice just now because Robert is in jail on another charge, involving stolen automobiles. He is held for false pretense in two Pittsburgh cases with detainers lodged against him for similar oftenses in Washington county and in West Virginia. "Buster" has been interviewed by Fsyette county police on a number of occasions. A few years ago, he reported a girl with whom he had boon living in a Uniontown hotel had taken poison when he left their room. She recovered with the aid or expert medical attention. A year or so later he was s central figure in a widely publicized "suicide pact" in Allegheny county. Both he and the girl involved recovered from the effects of poison they had taken. In Allegheny county atop his talc of murder, Buster has related more definitely his marital adventures. He can remember only four of hfs many wives, taken in many states, he declared. He married Louella St. Clair of McKcesport in Wcllsburg August, 1926, but left her in New York some --time later. He says he was next wed to Ecna Ropcle of Clarksvillc at Washington, D. C., in June, 1933. The third wife he recalls distinctly, he says, was Ann Kuslck of Isabella whom he wed in July of last year nt Wellsburg. Last September he married Victoria Kerfontc of Monongahela at Alexandria, Va., wife number four, according to his story. Victoria is still living with Buster us his wife but she isn't too sure of her status, since he voluntarily confessed he has never been divorced from any of his several wives But she Is definite about his story of the Texas holdup-murder, in which she is alleged to have driven the car: "I never was in Texas in my life," she told authorities wearily "I can't even drive a car, so I couldn't have driven away after the killing as he says I always knew he was a liar but didn't have any idea he was this good." East Huntingdon Students to Give Historical Program The winter meeting of the West- morcland-Fayctte Branch of the Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania will be held nt the Zion Lutheran Church, Pennsylvania avenue at Second street, Greensburg, tcnight at 8 o'clock. The program will be given by the East Huntingdon Township High School History Club. To emphasize the history of Westmoreland county, the students of the East Huntingdon High School local history class have marked a map, locating many of the sites of historical incidents in the county. Plans are being made to have other high school history clubs duplicate the work done for the branch by the East Huntingdon club at future meetings. Last 0. A. R.
