Lonzy was employed by Hepinstall Steel Works, 600 Market Street, on the day of his murder. Curtis Falcon, foreman at Hepinstall, told police that Lonzy didn’t report to work on August 16, 1963; although Lonzy did stop by to pick up his pay at about 5:00pm. Falcon noted that he later observed Lonzy at about 5:45 pm that same evening in his car at the intersection of Felicity and Magazine streets.
Falcon was certain it was Lonzy because the brakes on Lonzy’s car made a screeching noise caused by one wheel of the car being pulled when the brakes were applied. [ Read transcription… ]
