Police Seek Clues To Bone Mystery CHITTENDEN - Vermont State Police have no clues how skeletal remains of a 26-year-old Glens Falls, N.Y.. woman were buried in Chittenden, an officer said Wednesday. We have no idea why she would be in the area, said Lt. Roy Prior of the Rutland barracks. We have no idea how she got here. Last week, Vermont State Police said the skeleton found in woods behind a residential section of Chittenden belonged to Catherine Patricia Maranville. Maranville was reported missing to the Glens Falls Police Department on Aug. 1, 1983, by the staff of a nonprofit mental health care agency. She was an out-patient. Police are seeking information on Maranvilles whereabouts between August 1983 and July or August 1984. We haven't had any calls on that, said Prior, refering to a request by police for anyone with information to come forward. Prior said the cause of death was unknown but was considered semi-suspicious. There was no apparant gunshot or stab wounds, he said. Police are still investigating." Maranville was descibea by police as 5 feet, 8 inches tall, weighing 120 pounds and having light brown hair. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 773-9101. Drug Suspect Must Post Bail A Rutland District Court judge refused Wednesday to reduce bail for a Rutland man charged last week with sale and possession of cocaine. The lawyer for Allan Owens Jr., 30, recently asked Rutland District Judge Francis B. McCaffrey to let Owens post a tl.000 deposit on his $10,000 bail. But in a ruling issued Wednesday, McCaffrey refused to change the bail requirement set last week by District Judge Theodore S. Mandeville Jr., in which Owens must post the entire $10,000. Owens pleaded innocent May 6 to charges of sale and possession of cocaine. The sale charge alleged that Owens sold approximately one gram of cocaine to a police informant for $120 inside Faat Alpertts bar on State Street on May 5. Tne possession charge said when Owens was arrested outside the bar shortly after, he had on his person packets containing more than one gram of cocaine, worth between $700 and $1,000. In his ruling, McCaffrey said there was a risk Owens might flee unless there was substantial cash bail, because he was unemployed and had no stable or permanent home in the area. McCaffrey noted that Owens had four less serious drug possession convictions, beginning in 1977.
