Murder Will Out

Prosecuting Attorney Bee Hopkins and Constable John Lockney returned Monday from Detroit, Mich., with Raymond McCune, of Washington district, who has been a fugitive under a murder indictment returned against him in the Calhoun county circuit court in November, 1928.

At that time McCune was indicted for the murder of Enos A. Streets but in the years that passed was never apprehended and brought to justice.  The alleged crime occurred before Prosecutor Hopkins was inducted into office and he has since kept a weather ear open for McCune.  A few days ago word was received that he was in Detroit in which city the prosecutor had no difficulty in locating and arresting him.  He was brought back to Parkersburg and lodged in the Wood county jail for safe keeping until the April term of court when he will be tried.

It is alleged that McCune struck Streets over the head with a chair at a store in Stinson and that the latter subsequently died from the effects of his injuries.
