Man At Pensacola Really Wanted
To the Advertiser)
Fla., May 31 – That Ed Lorienza, who jumped over board from a British
ship Sunday morning because, as he said, he wanted to be punished for a
murder which he committed years ago. Is really wanted in Elk City, Idaho
and became known today when a telegram was received by the police from
the sheriff of Idaho County, Idaho, stating that such a man is wanted
there on the charge of murder and requesting that the man in custody
here be held until an officer could arrive to take him back to the scene
of his crime.
Lorienza risked his
life when he leaped from the ship, both from drowning and sharks.
He was rescued by a motor boat and he asked that he be not
returned to the ship but taken ashore and sent back to Idaho where he
had killed a man a woman years ago during a strike. He gave the officers
his name and the details of the murder and talked so convincingly that a
wire was sent by the local police which elicited an immediate reply.
