Three men Thought to Know something Arrested

The investigation of County Detective James L. Berkebile and Chief of Police Slates of Franklin borough into the suspicious death of Stasko Bjelizuk, the foreigner who was found dead on the streets near his boarding house in Johnstown last Saturday night, and resulted in the arrest of four foreigners, one of whom is the proprietor of the boarding house where the dead man lived. Three of the men, Milo Sponovic, Mike Chalick and Mike Colonich are locked up in the city police station, while the other foreigner is a prisoner in the lockup in Franklin. It was stated Tuesday that the men have been arrested on nominal charges and are being held as suspicious persons in the belief that they may know something about the death of Bielizuk, who, it is strongly suspected, was murdered.
