Gervase M. (Gerry) Flick, at the suggestion of Dr. Sam's lawyer, relates a personal story to Deputy Inspector James E. McArthur. In it, Flick said that on the day of Mrs. Sheppards murder, he was driving to Erie, Pennsylvania, and happened to pick up a hitchhiker whom Flick concluded, based on the utterances from the passenger, that he was the murderer. However Flick refused a lie detector test 3 times by Inspector McArthur. In the article, McArthur conveys, among other things, that Flick is a "personal friend of Dr. Sam and his murdered wife."
