Paper Box Containing Ear i <«» Kidnap Clue Chicago. Jan. 31 — (UP)— Police studied a scrap of greasy paper and a cardboard box today, hop- in;; to learn if the fiend who bu,tc cred six-year-old Suzanne Dcgnan and the sadist who sent a human ear through the mail were the same person. A small home-made box containing an adult human ear was mailed to Mrs James Dcgnan, mother of the slain child Scrawled on the inside cover was the threat: "Will cut your ear next" Chief of DDetcctives Walter Storms said investigators were comparing the handwriting on the box with that of the $20,000 ransom note which the slayer left in Suzanne's bedroom when he kid- naped her Jan .7. He said the writing on the box apparently had been disguised, as was that on the ransorne note. I Meanwhile the War Department I reported that Sgt. Seymour Sherman, whose name and serial num- ' ber corresponded with laundry I marks on a handkerchief found j near the Degnan home, was oyer- I seas at the time of the slaying. ', Police hoped to interview Sherman. however, to learn whether the handkerchief belonged to him, and, if so, where he could have lost it. Sherman's father, David, said in New York that his son was expected to arrive there soon. Storms said police were convinced that Suzanne's slayer was either a physician, medical student "very good" butcher, cmbalmer or perhaps a livestock handler.
