MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF BANKER

AKRON, O., Nov. 17 -

Albert J. Albright, a bank official was found mysteriously slain on a lonely road eight miles northeast of here early today.

He was in the back seat of his sedan a bullet through his heart. The hand throttle had been pulled down, the machine was in high gear and its lights still burned. It had stopped after careening 200 feet along a bridge railing, breaking off the front wheels.

Besides Albright's body was a 38 caliber revolver. The trigger had been pulled three times. The first and third bullets had failed to discharge.

Authorities ruled out the possibility of suicide.

Albright left his home in Massilon, O., yesterday morning to attend a bankers banquet in Cleveland last night. Residents near the bridge heard the crash at 11:40 last night. Soon afterwards the body was found.

Authorities said that they could not discover that Albright had enemies yet robbery was not a motive since Albright's money - $18 - was found untouched in his purse. They believed that his slayer, after firing the shot, tossed the pistol into the car and remained on the running board long enough to push the gear lever into high and jerk down the throttle.
