Lie Detector Exams
Clear 2 Of Murder

Two peiyuns who have been questioned in the Maralynn
Skeltori murder case have "passed" lie detector tests, it
was learned today.

A third person is scheduled for the test and a fourth
may be asked to take it soon.

Police Chief Walter E. Krasny says his men are con-
tinuing to track down leads in the case in cooperation with
other law agencies in the county. One of those already
questioned is a 16-year-old Oakland County youth who a
week ago was arrested while under the influence of LSD.
The teen-ager was taken into custody by city police who
said he was seen running down S. University Ave. wearing
only shorts, his body covered with tar.

Officers said he was "wild" and for a time talked in-
coherently at police headquarters. He told patrolmen he
obtained the LSD he had consumed in ' ' -or and that
the drug was available "everywhere.' '" said they
are satisfied he has no knowledge of the Skelton slaying.

•Krasny also said police are interested in finding a blue
panel truck, although the vehicle is not considered a "hot
lead."

Miss Skelton was reported to have been seen riding in
such a vehicle Saturday afternoon, March 22. Her body
was found the following Tuesday.

The truck was described as having flower decals and
other stickers pasted on it. The truck driver was described
as having red hair, a beard and being about 24 years old.

Krasny indicated that although the truck is regarded
as a factor in the case, police are more interested in talking
to the person or persons believed to have been with Miss,
Skelton when she last was seen alive at 1:30 a.m. Monday,
March 24.

She was reported seen at that time buying h
in a restaurant in Romulus, her hometown. A car was
reported waiting outside for her.
