KEY FIGURE IN FISHER RAPE CLAIM FOUND

Private investigators working for Amy Fisher have located a corrections officer who disappeared in July and ended an 18-year career just days after she filed her lawsuit that accused him of raping her at Albion Correctional Facility.

Roger Putnam, a local investigator hired by Ms. Fisher's lawyers, said he traced Bruce Kuttner to Lafayette, La., by using subpoenaed telephone records.

Kuttner, formerly of Albion, was working on an oil rig tender called The Long Island and was served with the lawsuit Saturday, Putnam said.

Glenn E. Murray, Ms. Fisher's attorney, said he understood that Kuttner now has 20 days to return to the area and answer the allegations contained in Ms. Fisher's suit against him and other corrections officers.

If Kuttner fails to answer the summons, Murray said, he expects a judgment will be entered against him in court. But if Kuttner does appear, Murray said, he will file a motion with U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara seeking a blood sample from Kuttner.

Ms. Fisher claims her underwear that her mother smuggled from prison after a visit contains Kuttner's semen. The underwear tested positive for semen at a DNA laboratory.
