Last inmate
in Detroit
jail escape
DETROIT (AP)-- The last of 10
inmates who escaped in August from
a state prison in Detroit was recap-
tured Monday night, police said.
Tyrone Garland, 32, was arrested
about 11:30 p.m. during a raid on an
east side home led by Deputy Police
Chief Benny Napoleon. Garland was
found hiding under a bed and was
arrested without incident, Napoleon
d during a telephone interview.
A 44-year-old woman and a 36-
year-old man were arrested with Gar-
land. Police planned to charge them
with harboring a prisoner, Napoleon
Garland was serving a 20- to 60-
year sentence for second-degree mur-
der at the Ryan Regional Correctional
Facility when he and nine other in-
tes escaped Aug. 21.
"We never gave up searching for
him," Napoleon said. "He may have
forgotten about us but we didn't for-
get about him."
City and state police and the FBI
participated in the raid, which came
after half an hour of surveillance con-
firmed Garland was in the house,
Napoleon said.
Police received a tip on Garland's
*ereabouts from another law en-
frctement agency that Napoleon de-
clined to identify.
Eight of the 10 were recaptured
within 10 days of escaping; all are
being held at the State Prison of South-
ern Michigan. The ninth, Kevin
Hatcher, was found dead of a drug
overdose the day after the breakout.
Garland was being held at police
tdquarters and was to have been
teed over yesterday afternoon to
state Corrections Department offi-
cials, Napoleon said.
"We have completed the circle;
then there were none," he said.
"They're all in custody. It makes us
feel real good. It's the end of a very
long diligent search."

'Son-of-a-Bush' ahead
in Texas governor race

The Baltimore Sun
HOUSTON - "Don't elect that
son-of-a-Bush," warn bumper stick-
ers in support of tart-talking Texas
Gov. Ann W. Richards.
But Texas voters may be about to
spurn that advice and their good ol'
gal governor in the grandest grudge
match of this election year.
Richards, one of the Democratic
Party's shining stars, is in serious
trouble in her re-election fight against
George W. Bush, the eldest son of the
former president. The latest public
poll shows Bush 3 percentage points
In fact, with only two weeks left in
the '94 campaign, Republicans have
a good chance to win the governor-
ships of the nation's four most popu-
lous states - California, New York,
Texas and Florida (where another
Bush son, Jeb, is running strongly).
More than political bragging rights
are at stake. A big-state Republican
sweep could make it that much tougher
for President Clinton to gain re-elec-
tion in 1996, as Bush, a key political
adviser to his father in 1992, happily
points out.
His strategy for the closing days

of the race here, Bush said in an inter-
view, will be to "highlight Bill Clinton
and the need to have a governor in
Texas in 1996 who understands that
Clinton has not .been good for Texas
and has not been good for America."
Bush denies that his candidacy is
about -avenging his father's defeat.
But he acknowledges "the irony" that
his campaign is in some ways a rerun
of the 1992 presidential race, and that
his opponent is someone who zoomed
to national prominence by bashing
his father.
Richards' syrupy Texas accent and
silvery hairdo gained attention at the
1988 Democratic National Conven-
tion when she unloaded a sassy, sneer-
ing attack on the then-vice president:
"Poor George, he can't help it," went
her most memorable line. "He was
born with a silver foot in his mouth."
Two years later, she was elected
governor. During her term, the
state's economy has rebounded and
the state budget is now in surplus,
thanks in part to the lottery she
pushed. School test scores are up
and crime is down, but the governor
is caught in vicious political cross-

Civil disturbances break out in Kentucky AP PHOTO
Lexington Fayette Urban County police in riot gear walk down a street in Lexington, Ky. yesterday. As many as 500
people roamed the area, overturning police cars and throwing rocks, following the fatal shooting of a Black 18-year-
old by a police officer. Police said the man was shot accidentally while being arrested at his home in connection
with a Sept. 30 street shooting. The officer involved was relieved of duty pending an investigation.
DNA tests used to examine famous deaths

High-tech tests are inspiring new in-
vestigations of the deaths of famous
people, including Lincoln assassin
John Wilkes Booth, to answer the
question "Who dunnit?" and see if the
history books are right.
Descendants of Booth, along with
two historians, have filed a petition in
Baltimore Circuit Court asking to
exhume remains from a city cemetery
to see if it really is Booth who is
buried there.
Similar investigations already
have looked into the deaths of Presi-
dent Zachary Taylor, Louisiana po-
litical legend Huey Long, the ax-mur-
dered parents of Lizzie Borden and
the victims of Colorado cannibal
Alfred Packer.
"There has been a surge of in-
creased recognition at what our fo-
rensic sciences can do. It's possible to,
do things that we couldn't do 15 years
ago," said Douglas Ubelaker, curator

of physical anthropology at the
Smithsonian Institution's Museum of
Natural History.
A cautionary note is sounded by
Clyde Snow, a forensic anthropolo-
gist in Norman, Okla., who analyzed
bones found in 1985 at the Little
Bighorn battlefield in Montana. Far-
fetched stories often surround the
lives of famous historical figures, he
said, and exhumations should only
be done if reputable historians be-
lieve it could shed light on a certain
historical issue.
"I don't know that just because
somebody out there has some doubts
about what happened that we should
jump in and dig people up," Snow
Ubelaker and colleague Doug
Owsley were approached by Booth's
relatives and historians who think
another man is buried in Booth's
grave. They think Booth escaped cap-
ture and lived another 38 years be-

fore dying in Oklahoma in 1903.
Advances in DNA testing of soft
tissue and preserved bone can help
provide genetic fingerprints to aid in
identification, Ubelaker said.
Also, scientists' knowledge of
trauma and post-mortem changes in
the body has increased in recent years.
Scientists also have sophisticated
means of comparing skulls with pho-
tographs of the deceased, he said.
And chemical analysis of bones can
determine what a person ate before
death, or if they ingested a poison or
other chemical.
"It's kind of a growing trend,"
Walter Birkby, a forensic anthropolo-
gist at the University of Arizona, said
of forensic investigations of histori-
cal figures. "It's just a realization that
the forensic sciences can answer some
questions that have been around for
many, many years."
More conclusive results were ob-
tained from the 1991 exhumation of
President Taylor in Kentucky. Dr.
George Nichols, the state's medical
examiner, determined that the presi-
dent died of natural causes, not arsenic
poisoning as a writer speculated.
