CROY, Enoch - house burner

Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal Thursday, 12 June 1873

Four prisoners from Fountain County, three on charge of murder and one for house burning, were brought to this city last Friday evening and lodged in jail, the prison at Covington being considered insecure. The three who were charged with murder are Jasper Van Dyne, Webster Lewark, and George Van Dyne.

It will be remembered that about two years ago a German girl named Padonner, who lived in the family of Wm Loeb, at Attica, was found brutally murdered and thrown into the canal. The evidence against these boys was sufficient to justify the officers in making their arrest for this murder.

The other, Enoch Croy, was arrested on a charge of burning a house a few miles east of Attica.
