A WOMAN'S STORY
(Received April 29, 11 a.m.) PARIS, April 28
The police intercepted a letter addressed to Landru (charged with the murder of eleven women), from Mademoiselle Deachamps, whom Landni met in the Pax-is tube, half-an-hour before he was arrested, otherwise she undoubtedly would have been another of his victims.
Deschamps is a pretty girl of 20 years, and with beautiful eyes. She told the police that- she immediately felt she could trust the handsome black-bearded gentleman, with extraordinary fascinating eyes, amiable manners and sweet voice, who offered her a sent. She couldn't resist when asked, to go with him, almost at the next station, Landru adding: "I would give all my life for a minute's talk with, you alone.'' They walked together through the underground corridors for a quarter of an hour. Landru professed love, and told her that he had a large fortune, and said, "Next week you must come in my motor-car to my lovely village country."
