LOS ANGELES (A.NP) - Because Paul Martin Graver,- 32,
once boasted he could commit the "perfect crime/' he found
himself under arrest last week charged with suspicion of double
murder. His suspected victims were his wife. Mary, 33, and their
daughter. Martha. 8 who had been found by Upland plblice dead
in Graver’s badly damaged car..
The alleged accident occurred neat the Village -of Upland.
The ear was found; resting against an eucalyptus tree. The mar,
hd only a few minor injuria#, but Mrs, Graver died W few hours
after she had been removed to « hospital without regaining con
sciousness, She suffered leg and skull fractures, besides many
cuts and bruises. The child died instantly.
Police at first believed Graver's sAry of the accident, but
later found evidence which led them to suspect he had delib
erately crashed into the tree, He had told them that the child
had been pinned beneath the car and he had lifted it off her.
According to Upland Police Chief Eugene Mueller, the first
suspicion ihal the accident might have been murder, came when
it was learned the woman was not Graver's wife, but the wife
of Ignacio Warner of Washington, D. C., sal d to be Negro, They
had foet-n living together in Los Angeles, Recently they sepa
rated, but she rejoined him day or two before the tragedy.
Warner is also said to be the child's lather.
Police plan to hold an autopsy t».J ascertain if the victims had
been killed before the car crashed into the tree,
