THIRD GIRL FOUND SLAIN IN INDIANA

Charlestown, Ind.
The scare of a Jack the Ripper slayer increased today in this area where three young women have been found dead in recent months.

The latest victim, found Thursday, was mutilated in a fashion reminiscent of the killer who roamed London's Whitechapel district in the 1880's and never was caught.

The victim was Anita Christine Barmore, 21. She was a friend of the second victim, Nancy Webb, 21, killed a month ago. Both had worked in Louisville, Ky. taverns.

BODY DECOMPOSED

The body of the first girl, Julia Ann Dawson, 22, was found May 21, south of here near Jeffersonville. Her body was decomposed and the coroner ruled she died of an overdose of a pain killing drug. Miss Webb had been beaten and strangled.

Coroner Edwin Coots said Miss Barmore apparently was strangled. All three girls were from Louisville.

Louisville police said there was a possible link between the slayings but nothing definite had been established.

The area of the slayings is just across the Ohio river from Louisville.
