Stcr lx 5, Vcrn Ly Fenton, Also Wcrn fcy L!rc!:rcd Pc!;cen::n, George II. Crown i One of the 'most peculiar feature surroumlin the killinp; of Policeman James J. Fenton by F. Hoyle was' the fact that Fenton ivore star Xo. 40. the same number that was worn by Policeman George JI. I'rown. who was' shot to death by a thug while on-duty near the Providence Hospital on the night of December 17. l!04. Brown's murderer escaped and is still at large. Feiton was aware that he was the same number in the force that llrown had been before him. but he was nt superstitious about the c incidence. The fact that he wore tie same numbered star as that worn by a brother officer who was murdered before he was a regular patrolman apparently had no significance for Fenton. i.!a:i j.'j.:s rtnicii i . i i i I . 1 . 4 a OE 3reuio: IS Stolen StcHips FcL.!.I Satcbl Drc;:,:;j Ly DROPPED IN HIS TRACKS BY' QlIIQl nillu'G OF HEROIC DAROER V TRUSTEE'S SALE.
