coroner's files, new evidence tested
Letter to Cleveland Chief of Police Frank W. Story explaining the tests and lab results of found evidence (knit cotton material, rock, piece of wood) submitted for possible association with the murder of Marilyn Sheppard.
Cuyahoga County Coroner Sam Gerber summarized his results at the end of a five-page document: "An exhaustive study of this material failed to yield any evidence to warrant suspicion that it could have been associated with the murder of Marilyn Sheppard."
