Star-Telegram GRAPEVINE Texas — That they met on Halloween seems appropriate The man who called himself Hank Queen was definitely mysterious And not until Wednesday after he was profiled on national television as the prime suspect in a Michigan killing did Linda Blizzard discover her boyfriend's true identity Queen whose real name was Dennis DePue had been wanted for the past year by Michigan authorities and the FBI in the grisly Easter Day slaying of his estranged wife Marilynn Pictures of Dennis DePue accompanied a segment on NBC-TV's Unsolved Mysteries that aired Wednesday evening about the Michigan slaying attracting the attention of Blizzard's best friend "I was watching TV and I thought "Oh — Michigan' and things kind of clicked Next thing I knew they flashed his picture on the screen and I had no doubt in my mind it was him" said Barbara Har ris of Garland a Dallas suburb "It was so obvious it was him I just jumped up It frightened me" His girlfriend said DePue 47 had also been watching Harris said The TV show which features unsolved police cases from across the country drew 50 tips from viewers about the Michigan slaying said Undersheriff John Abbott in Branch County Mich But it was Harris' telephone call that gave police the break A year ago the body of Marilynn DePue 48 was found just outside Coldwater Mich she had been shot in the head Branch County authorities issued a murder warrant for Dennis DePue that day What brought DePue to Texas is unknown But he eventually made a home for himself in Grapevine a city between Dallas and Fort Worth Blizzard and DePue met last year at a Halloween party at a popular Dallas nightspot The two dated and the relationship blossomed By Christmas DePue who had been living in Mesquite near Dallas had moved into Blizzard's Grapevine home DePue an avid sports fan told Blizzard that he had graduated from Michigan State University and that he worked for a publishing company doing illustrations He always carried cash but didn't leave the house much during the day "We had become a little bit suspicious of him" Harris said "Linda didn't know his middle name She knew he grew up in Michigan but he wouldn't directly say where He didn't have a driver's license and she never saw any mail come to the house "He was really evasive about a lot of things" Blizzard made repeated unsuccessful attempts to find out more about DePue including enrolling in a mini-course in detective work and hiring a private investigator But it was Harris a close friend who said she had long suspected foul play in DePue's past who made the grim discovery Blizzard was on her way home iBfiPP II -jBb" a '"" j iTMiiniasMg tBPHtx ' M SB hB Uiiitiliif -iart Associated Press CLASS CLOWN Gary Isaacs 32 of New York City urges students at

seriously injured in recent weeks by bottle bombs they said they learned to make from watching the television show MacGyver authorities say The show's producers said they do not recall an episode in which the character used a bottle bomb but some victims' mothers have told doctors they saw the show "This is a nightmare for us" said Dr Terrence O'Brien an ophthalmologist at the Johns Hopkins Hospital Wilmer Eye Institute O'Brien said he knew of two mothers who said they watched the show a few weeks ago "We're concerned about the children but the producers of the show just don't remember that episode and we would never divulge what devices are made of for fear someone would try to duplicate them at home" said Harry Anderson Paramount Pictures spokesman MacGyver is an ABC-TV series whose hero uses scientific knowledge to outwit criminals The latest victim Kevin Hines 11 remained hospitalized Friday His eye was badly burned March 15 by an exploding bottle bomb He had picked up a glass bottle bomb that had been shaken by another boy The bottle exploded According to O'Brien Kevin was about to throw the bottle when it exploded in his right hand propelling glass that slit his right eyeball The other eye was splashed by the drain cleaner Among the other incidents an 11 -year-old Baltimore boy was injured when he struck a bottle bomb with a stick a Baltimore woman told police that boys threw a similar bomb at her home and a Harford County boy was seriously burned three weeks ago when he tried to make one of the devices All of the boys told authorities they learned to make the bottle bomb after MacGyver "Last year a kid in Allegany County was seriously injured trying to make a bomb after watching MacGyver" said Bob Thomas a spokesman for the state fire marshal's office O'Brien sent the producers a letter three weeks ago telling them about the injuries he said So far he has received no response Dr Allen Walker director of the Johns Hopkins Children Center
