Detectives Pagel and Doran interviewed Alan Moritz, Director of the Pathology Department at Western Reserve University, who had spoken with a couple in the same social set as Sam and Marilyn. This couple said that at social functions, Sam "took every opportunity which presented itself to go on long discourses on sex and the sex failings and fears of women." They stated that "if an attempt was made to change the subject by anyone, he would come back to it again." Henrietta Munn, Marilyn's aunt, was also interviewed. She stated that she once had a bad case of the hiccups and that Sam "put his arm around her neck and squeezed, causing her to go unconscious." She also believed that Marilyn consulted an attorney about divorcing Sam.
