Description

This article reports that three Bay Village residents saw lights on in the Sheppard home between 2 and 2:30am on the morning of the murder. Coroner Gerber believes this is significant because "it is very unlikely that a burglar would enter a house where the lights were on." Gerber also expressed puzzlement that fingerprint experts could not find "even the ordinary prints that appear in any ordinary home." It was also reported that Elnora Helms, a housekeeper who came to the Sheppard home one day a week for the past two and a half years, said that Sam and Marilyn acted "like sweethearts."
