Found at corner of Euclid Ave. and Kennard St. The victim was murdered in a vacant lot on Euclid Ave. adjacent to property of A. W. Blann. JB and SG were acquainted. Many witnesses confess to seeing someone running from the crime scene and also seeing the accused flee from the scene.
No hard evidence linked the accused, James Bouens, to the victim, so the accused was set free.
Louisa Yarhaus, a friend from whose house the victim left the night she was murdered, was the first witness, giving much information regarding her acquaintance with the deceased. A. W. Blann whose property joins the vacant lot which Miss Greiner was found was the next sworn witness. Blann's testimony caused a striking coincidence, as his finding was a lead to evidence in the case.
Bouens, the man arrested on the charge of murder of Susan Greiner, was identified by a teamster with whom he rode on the same morning the Euclid Ave. murder was committed. The teamster was in the employ of Mr. Hovey and claimed that from Bouen's conversation he was the guilty party. After hearing the statement, Bouens denied knowing the teamster, though the teamster identified Bouens in a crowd of 25 other prisoners. Bouens made no reply and went back to his cell.
