New clues Monday heartened prosecutors investigating the assassination of Clinton G Price, militant district attorney of Juneau county.
O S Loomis, special prosecutor, announced that :
The gun with which Price is believed to have been slain has been traced to a Wisconsin owner through its serial number.
A trail of blood followed from a boathouse across the river from Price's residence to the home of ex sheriff Lyall Wright, was found to lead into the living room of the house. Wright is held for the slaying
These two developments shared interest with the prosectors' rebuff in their attempt to obtain fingerprints of the ousted sheriff. Frank Hanson, his attorney, refused to admit them . He holds an order from Circuit Judge E L Crosby barring interviews from Price unless Hanson consents. Loomis had claimed that Judge Crosby authorized the fingerprinting in a verbal order. The judge called at Neillsville would neither affirm nor deny this..
