Death of Mervin Boutil­lier a great mys­tery

Moose Jaw Times Herald - - OPINION -

Ap­pro­pri­ate hos­pi­tal care was given and a wound was found on his right tem­ple. An X-ray was or­dered, done and quickly read. The X-ray showed Mr. Boutil­lier had a bul­let in his head, lodged be­tween his eyes. In­spec­tor Bell was in­formed of the sit­u­a­tion.

When he was able to talk to po­lice, Boutil­lier said he had ac­cepted a ride in a grey coupe au­to­mo­bile with strangers, as­sum­ing they would take him to where he could buy cig­a­rettes. He said the car was driven north on Main Street, turned west on Stada­cona Street West.

His next mem­ory of the events was be­ing in the vicin­ity of the Robin Hood Flour Mill. It was there, he told Bell, he was struck on the head, robbed of $50.00 and thrown from the car. From there, and with great dif­fi­culty, he walked back to his down­town ho­tel room.

Look out for Part II next week.
