County Sheriff Douglas Harvey
yesterday denied he had con-
firmed reports that deputies had
seen a man early Sunday morn-
ing go up to the ravine, where the
body of the coed was found, and
then run off.
When the body of the EMU coed
was found Saturday, the sheriff's
department placed the area under
a tight security ring. Deputies kept
a hidden watch over the ravine,
located in the woods off the inter-
section of Riverside and Huron
The body was taken to Univer-
sity Hospital Saturday evening
and a store mannikin was put in
its place, by County Prosecutor
Delhey had believed the mur-
derer might return to the place
where he left the slain girl, as
officials believed had been done
in six previous murders.
Although both Harvey and Del-
hey officially deny the reports,
officials in the sheriff's depart-
ment said Monday that a man
was seen to go straight up to the
ravine and then rush off into the
woods. Deputies bolted after him
but were unable to find him in the
woods and undergrowth.
Reportedly, the man was close
enough so that he was able to
touch the mannikin. The deputies
could not catch the man because
once they spotted him, they all
began to talk over their two-way
radios in confusion.
One official said, however, the
man did not go farther than
within 30 feet of the body but
that he appeared to know the
body had been dumped there.
aHarvey also denied reports that
a murder site had been discovered
by Monroe County deputies. "It is
definitely not true," said Harvey.
"If we find the murder site, we
will announce it to the press,"
said Delhey at a press conference
late Monday night.
Except for a revised composite
picture of the young man from
whom Beineman took a. motor-
cycle ride when she was last seen
Wednesday, Harvey reported that

MORE FUNDS, BARGAINING RIGHTS
welfare mothers set demands
The county Welfare Rights Committee
(WRC) presented the County Social Ser-
vices Board Monday a list of demands,
including recognition of WRC as the of-
ficial bargaining agent for welfare recipi-
ents and the alteration of the school
WRC said that "the ultimate, legal
responsibility for actions of the depart-
ment (of social services) is borne by the
board and cannot be bargained away by
it," but that WRC "ought to be a powerful
factor in the exercise of the board's dis-
The board did not take any action on
the proposal and recommended that fur-
ther study be made concerning the legal-
ity of entering into such an arrangement.
The amount of allowance for clothing
should be issued on an "individual deter-
mination" basis, with the recipients deter-
mining how much money their children
would need for clothes, the proposal said.
Included in that proposal is an addition-
al increase in the allowance to permit
recipients more than the present two or
three changes of clothing. Emerson
claimed that because of -the frequency
needed for washing the clothes the
mothers already have, they often have to
hire babysitters or leave their children
alone while they go to wash.
Gloria Fuller of Legal Aid Services said
yesterday that mothers who are attend-
ing training school or have taken jobs
which may allow them to get off welfare

Brian Urquhart, attorney for the
defense, asked the jurors "to look
at this thing realistically" and de-,

"I believe the landlord has lived
