Front page July 23, 1915: Driver of red car sought as suspect in girl's death

Among the local news on the day's front page:

"Hunt driver of red car as girl murder suspect: Sped from spot where Louisa Carroll lay dying, when asked to aid, several say"

"Louisa Carroll, unconscious and dying, Tuesday night after someone, supposedly the driver of a big red Pierce touring car, had fractured her skull, was found directly in the center of Broadway. Contrary to the assumption of the sheriff's officer and detectives, that the man who gave the girl her death wound had dragged her to the grassy stretch alongside the road. It was Alexander Boross, Depew hotel proprietor and commissary at the Gould Coupler works, assisted by Dr. Alexander Mackey of Lancaster, who carried the girl to that point."
