Journal-Standard, Thursday, July 17, 1975 Fugitives ^ Returned To England MELBOURNE, Australia (UPI) Four Scotland Yard detectives took British legislator John Stonehouse and his secretary back to England today to face charges in connection with the theft of more than a quarter-million dollars. Stonehouse, a former aviation minister, and Mrs. Sheila Buckley, his attractive 28-year-old secretary, began the 23-hour flight to London 2% weeks after the Australian government ordered their extradition. The Scotland Yard officers put the two fugitives aboard a British Airways jumbo jet 15 minutes before the rest of the passengers boarded for the flight to London. The return of Stonehouse to England ended a worldwide drama that began in September, 1974, when he disappeared from the Fountainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach, Fla. 'Australian police arrested Stonehouse on Christmas Eve. He was freed on bail pending the outcome of an extradition hearing, but was detained again June 9 when he tried to board a flight for London. On June 30, Magistrate Cecil Thompson approved extradition warrants for Stonehouse and Mrs. Buckley on theft charges involving $310,000 in England. Stonehouse faces 21 counts of forgery, fraud, theft and conspiracy. Mrs. Buckley, who flew from England earlier in the year to join her boss in Australia, faces six counts of theft and conspiracy. The 49-year-old member of parliament held a tearful reunion with his secretary at Pentridge Prison today before the couple left for London. He hugged her warmly as impassive guards and police looked on. Mrs. Buckely had been in Fairlea Women's Prison and Stonehouse had been in Pentridge since the magistrate ordered the couple's extradition. Weil-Known Industrialist Dies In Nursing Home WEST FRANKFORT, 111. (UPI) Funeral services will be held Friday for John Moulin, West Frankfort, a member of the Illinois Industrial Commission for almost 35 years. Moulin, 76, a former Chicago resident, died Tuesday night at a nursing home at nearby Benton after a heart attack. A native of Winona, Moulin was a former coal miner and had served as a legal investigator for United Mine Workers District 12 before his appointment to the commission. He is survived by his widow, Freda; three nephews and two nieces. Visitation will start at 6 p.m. today at the Union Funeral Home here where funeral services are scheduled at 2 p.m. Friday. James Ruppert Wants A New Trial HAMILTON, Ohio (UPI) - j'ames Ruppert, sentenced to 11 consecutive life terms for the murder of his 11 relatives - the largest single family mass murder in U.S. history - wants a new trial. He contended Wednesday there was a misunderstanding about the three- judge panel that convicted him. He also complained about alleged misconduct of a witness. The 41-year-old unemployed draftsman was convicted July 3 of the largest known murder of members of one family. He escaped a death sentence, but his sentence - returned Monday makes parole improbable. Attorneys for Ruppert filed his motion for a new trial on grounds Ruppert originally had waived a jury trial with the understanding it would take a unanimous decision of the three-judge panel to convict him. Ruppert, who had pleaded innocent by reason of insanity, was'convicted on all 11 counts of aggravated murder by a 2-1 decision. Attorneys Joseph Bressler and Hugh Holbrock also alleged there was misconduct on the part of prosecution witness Wanda Bishop. Mrs. Bishop, who is separated from her husband, had testified she was with Ruppert the night before the Easter Sunday shootings and that Ruppert had discussed "taking care of his problems." However, the defense presented witnesses who said the woman was not with Ruppert that night. During the trial, Ruppert's attorneys admitted Ruppert killed his 65,-year-old widowed mother, his only brother, his sister-in-law and eight nieces and nephews, aged from 3 to 18. However, they argued Ruppert had been insane for the past 10 years. Attorneys for the prosecution contended Ruppert was legally sane. Man Who Died On Plane Was Recently Committed MIAMI (UPI) - Hospital records indicated Anthony Townsend was disturbed. He once told psychiatrists he had received messages from birds, telling him he would die "like Martin Luther King." Tuesday, Townsend did die - but in his own bizarre way. He set himself afire in the restroom of an airborne jetliner and burned to death. Records showed Townsend, 23, was admitted to South Florida State Hospital in Pembroke Pines in June, 1973, and stayed there a year. Hospital files disclosed he believed he heard voices calling him a "sissy" and received messages from "birds," one of them telling him he would be killed "like Martin Luther King." Tuesday night, Townsend locked himself in a back restroom of a National Airlines DC10 on a New York-to- Miami run, set fire to newspapers and held them to himself until he died. .A stewardess found the body after using a pass key to open the smoky room. Actress Greer Garson Plans Appearance In College Play SANTA FE, N.M. (UPI),- Actress Greer Garson will appear in a College of Santa Fe- production of the play "Madwoman of Chaillot" this fall. College officials said Wednesday Miss Garson would be the first person to appear in an artist-in-residence program at the college in which major theater actors and actresses will be featured with student actors in productions. Miss Carson's appearance will be at the Greer Garson theater, named in her honor. She is a resident of the Santa Fe area. Townsend, whose parents were divorced, had been in Philadelphia for the funeral of his aunt, with whom he had lived as a boy. "He was very fond of her," his father, George Townsend, said Wednesday. "Her first name was Roseann, but I don't know her last'name." The father said he was unaware of any problems his son might have had, despite the record of his stay at the Florida hospital. "I'm in a trauma. I've got a heart condition and I am so nervous I can't talk," the elder Townsend said of his son's death. "It is like putting salt in a raw wound." The youth's body was removed when the plane, carrying 57 other passengers, made an emergency landing at Jacksonville International Airport. The Duval County medical examiner at Jacksonville said the cause of death was carbon monoxide poisoning. Jacksonville police said they are unsure whether any inflammable liquid was used in the fire. TV Comedy Producer Has Star Placed In 'Walk Of Fame' HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - Television comedy producer Norman Lear looked on Wednesday as a star bearing his name was unveiled in the "Walk of Fame." It was the 1,659th star honoring a show business notable mounted in the sidewalk along Hollywood Boulevard. Lear produces "All in the Family," "Maude," "Sanford and Son" and "Great Day." His movies include "Come Blow Your Horn," "Divorce American Style" and "Start the Revolution Without Me."
