(AP) -- Photographs Hearst t a k e n Patricia security cameras during an April 15 bank robbery indicate she was an unwilling participant in the holdup, a photo analyst says. Peter Dayies of New York City said in a letter to the Hearst family that one picture indicates the gun Miss Hearst held was strapped under her coat to her right hand.

Miss Hearst's father, newspaper executive Randolph A. Hearst, said the analysis "reinforces some of the things 1 thought. I am sure she's either being coerced -- brainwashed -- or being forced, .but I don't know which it is, and I'm sure he (Davies) doesn't either." , Charles W. Bates, FBI agent in charge of the case, said only, 'Photos arc subject to various interpretations." Davies is author of a book called 'The Truth About Kent State." In the book he analyzed photos of National Guardsmen firing on a crowd of campus demonstrators in the 1970 incident in which four students died.
