ThrM Fri.) 1487 N. HfNPERSON ST. "Miss Helen Diffilop, wtte- XAty «t)d longotifiie eofflpanidn to Long, has told atttnoritles that minutes before his deith, Long told her he thought he had received a fatal dose of poison in a box of candy," the newspaper said. Presents Pasde The story said investigators were puzzled why Miss Dunlop waited nearly four months to tell of the suspected poisoning. The Globe said Miss Dunlop refused to comment Thursday on the case. However, she did say she had volunteered to take a lie detector test relating to the events surrounding Long's death. J. 0. Mudd, Pike County coroner for some 25 yearsi signed the death certificate stathig the cause of death was a stroke or "a cerebral vascular accident." Mudd, who is not a physician, said the death "had all the appearances of a stroke." Mudd said if Miss Dunlop had told him of the. senator's suspicions at the time, he would have insisted an autopsy be performed, the newspape;* said. Official Probe The Globe said Miss Dunlop contacted a law enforcement official and an inquiry into the death began April 10 with the Missouri Highway Patrol assigning a member of its investigative unit to the case. "The bizarre new twist in the Long case has caused investigators to take another look at the break-in at the Long home two days after his death," the Globe - Democrat said. The break-in was thought to be a burglary, although only a few goblets were missing and a great amount of more valuable property was untouched. "Authorities now are considering the possibility that the break-in was jiovrecover the box of candy so it could not jbe submitted to laboratory testii," the story, said. "The candy vfas not found by authorities at Long's estate." * f Loan thuek Hawkli sum Glflllan^lHlliymw to make yoiir1IM|j |ynore taluabta more fun to live inrl|||eare men youMMilRllJl^lk to about things — warm, frlMllli^uys.

Matthew Walsh, a former state's attorney, riead from the confession he said Barnes gave him at the Illinois Bureau of Investigation office in Chicago on May 22, 1971. Barnes, Joseph LaPiaca and Jayne's brother, Silas, also a wealthy horseman, are charged in the slaying. Barnes is the accused triggerman in the slay-|-| ing. Barnes at first denied any knowledge of the slaying, Walsh testified, but the defendant later said, "Yes, I will tell you the truth." Walsh said Barnes then admitted having shot George Jayne. The written confession Walsh attributed to Barnes agreed with details of events surrounding the murder as provided by the prosecution's star witness, Melvin Adaniis, an original defendant in the case who was granted immunity from prosecution in return for his testimony. Barnes' statement said he first saw George Jayne at the victim's home in suburban Inverness wiiile Jayne was cooking on an outdoor grill. "It was about dusk when we got there. He (Adams) drove me out there in his red and white car. We drove around the house a couple of times, got out of the car on the dark side of the house," the statement said. "I saw him (Jayne) with four others. I had the .30^ rifle. I saw him down in the basement playing cards," the statement continued. "I couldn't get a clear shot," it said. "He started dealing aj card, leaned over the table. . . that's when I shot at him m I jfront. I shot and ran. I heard ihim. I guess It was Ids wife, [hollering." mmm iii llipilpliil ililB^Biii •ipBililiiliiiiililii^^ ill m^M
