Mr. and Mrs. Alrah Cushman and family attended the funeral of Mrs. Ruth Oilar, a sister of Mrs. Cushman in West Liberty Church south of Covington.  A native of FOuntain COunty, Mrs. Oilar, 51, was mysteriously murdered in her home at Iowa City, Iowa. Her body was found by a neighbor in the kitchen at her farm home near Iowa City last Wednesday.

Killed at the same time was Beverly Breneman, 14 year old school girl, whose nude body was found in the barn yard at the Oilar farm. The double slaying remains a mystery although authorities are investigating the case.  

Mrs. Oilar was born near Silverwood, Ind. Her husband, James Oilar is a salesman. Her father, Clarence Baker, resides on a farm near Kingman

Such a sad thing - maybe we can find more on her some day :(
