CONFESSION BARES SLAYING AT OMAR
Details of Ellis Crime are Made Public by Logan Sheriff
LOGAN, March 1 - The confession of Mack Williams, 30 years old, Negro, who was brought here from Wellsville, Ohio, after admitting a murder at Omar six years ago, was made public Thursday by Sheriff Joe Hatfield. Williams is accused of killing French (Jocko) Ellis, brother of Green Ellis, of Logan, but at the time he was arrested in Wellsville and held on the murder charge, the Negro was unaware of the identity of his victim, he claimed. He is held in the county jail here pending action of the April grand jury. Ellis, who was 66 years old, was shot five times by Williams near the latter's home in the Omar camp April 13, 1924. At that time, Williams went under the name of Willie Jones, but his real name is Mack Williams, and his home town is Wellsville, Ohio, where he was detained last week on information.
