Kirk, Upiversity of California criminologist, declared, "The Sheppard case is not closed," as he prepared to return to West Coast today after spending three days investigating the July 4 murder of Marilyn Sheppard. He said his private investigation WM "going along satisfactorily," •nd added: "I found a few things." Dr. Kirk, who declined to elaborate, was hired by defense attorneys to make the investigation. He spent an hour yesterday at county Jail with Dr. Samuel H. Sheppard, convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to life In prison. Dr. Kirk said he had conducted extensive scientific tests in the comfortable lakefront home where the 31-year-old pregnant woman was clubbed to death.

He said he was taking some physical evidence—presumably mate-- rial found at the house—with him to Berkeley, Calif., where he will make laboratory tests. He had been denied permission to take along any items introduced as evidence in Sheppard's 10-week trial and now held by the county prosecutor. He called the Sheppard family "forthright" in answering h i s Questions, and added: "They did not hold back anything; they told me things they had not discussed among them- selves." In his Interview with the 31-year- old convicted osteopath, Dr. Kirk said Sheppard "suggested- things to look into in making the investigation." Sheppard, who mainLains an intruder killed his wife, is appealing his second-degree murder conviction.
