This article reports on Sam's trip to the Sheriff's office to make a voluntary statement about Marilyn's murder. Deputy Sheriff Carl Rossbach reportedly renewed his demand that Sam submit to a lie defector test: "He doesn't have to if he doesn't want to," Rossbach said, "but I intend to keep on asking until he agrees." Updates on the police investigation included: divers still unable to locate Sam's missing t-shirt or a murder weapon; authorities searched a boat Sam and Major Houk jointly own, Assistant Prosecutor Mahon asked Dr. Lester T. Hoversten, an osteopathic college classmate of Sam's who was a house guest at the Sheppard home for a week prior to the slaying, not to leave the vicinity.
