Coeds found murdered
SOMERS POINT, N.J. (AP)
-An autopsy report today disclosed that two pretty coeds whose bodies were found near the Garden State Parkway were victims of murder and died of stab wounds.
Dr. Edwin Albano, New Jersey's chief medical examiner, said both girls, daughters of businessmen, died of wounds inflicted with a small knife, possibly a pen or paring knife. The autopsy report did not reveal if either girl had been sexually assaulted.
Elizabeth Perry, Excelsior, Minn., died of chest round that penetrated her right lung. She also suffered wounds in the abdomen and the side of her neck.
Susan Davis, of Camp Hill, Pa., died of a wound in the neck that cut her larynx. Miss Davis also had wounds on the left side of her abdomen and the right side of her neck.
The coeds, both 19-year-old, had been vacationing in Ocean City. Miss Perry was the daughter of Ray Perry, a bag company executive from Excelsior.
Miss Davis was the daughter of soft drink bottler Wesley S. Davis of Camp Hill.
The body of Miss Davis was nude. Miss Perry was fully clothed.
The girls had been unaccounted for since Friday when they started out from Ocean City, a popular teen-age beach resort where they had been vacationing, for Miss Davis' Pennsylvania home.
A state trooper found their car abandoned by the parkway about noon Friday. A search of the area was begun after their parents reported them missing Sunday. A parkway maintenance man found the bodies Monday about 150 yards from where the car was parked.
The girls had been students together at Montecello Junior College in Godfrey, Ill. School officials said Miss Perry had completed her freshman year at the two-year all-girls' school and that Miss Davis had graduated. Miss Davis planned to enter Ithaca (N.Y.) College this September.
