Golesburg Reaister^Mail ; Gojesbufa; 111, Thursdoy, June 7, 1973 25 Lonely Diabetic Quits Work, Ends Lifff CLARKMOTIK, Okla. (UPI) — Marshall Moore, an "awful lonely" diabetic, worked for six months as a maintenance man at the Westside Elementary School in 1971, then quit. "That six months at the school was his whole life," said Jim Smith, a funeral director and one of the few people who ever got to know Moore. Moore, 52, filed an unsuccessful suit against the school district for back wages, but was unhappy about doing it. He caljcd Smith last week to make arrangements for his own funeral. Monday, he called Smith again and asked him to come out to his farm. He said it was not urgent. When Smith arrived, he found Moore's body lying just outside the back door to the farmhouse. He had been shot with a 12- gauge shotgun. The county medical examiner ruled the death suicide. Moore's will was read Wednesday. It provided that his property, including an 80-acre Black Angus cattle ranch valued at $70,000 to $90,000, be sold and the money given to the Westside Elementary School. Moore went to work at the school when his mother died and left him alone on the farm a half-mile from town. "He was an awful lonely person, awful lonely," said Smith. "People just didn't notice him." Because he couldnt take care of the school's boiler, Moore was switched to the night shift. He didn't like the hours so he- quit. •»> His suit for $400 in ba$ wages was dismissed on *a technicality. Smith said Moore felt very badly about filing suit and claimed someone hill talked him into doing it. "He said he'd never lef" anyone talk him into something''' like that again," Smith said. Police Eye Link in Holdup-Slaying CHICAGO (UP!) - Police today were seeking a link between the holdup-slaying of an insurance executive in the washroom of the Playboy Towers to other washroom robberies in downtown Chicago during the past month. David J. Hill, 34, was stripped naked, except for his socks, robbed and shot to death Tuesday night by two gunmen who opened fire after another patron of the Playboy club surprised the robbers in the course of the holdup. The gunmen escaped with less than $60 in cash and a gold watch, police said. When the fourth man startled the robbers, Hill, of suburban Park Ridge, dashed down a hallway and up a stairway, his assailants chasing him. The unidentified witness told police he ducked into a toilet stall and hid as the chase and shooting started. Police said he was shot at least three times. He staggered up the stairway to the lobby bar before collapsing in a pool of blood. The assailants, pursued by two hotel security guards, escaped when one of the gunmen pointed a chrome- plated gun at the guards.
