aka Loar lived in Toledo in 1963

Lola found a name and address of a woman in Bellefontaine. She went to the ladies home (took the Interurban) and said she was demonstrating face powder. The woman was living with her mother. Once she got the lady in the chair, instead of bringing out the face powder she brought out a knife and slit the woman's throat then ran off. The police caught her. She always said that if the Inter-Urban had been on time, she wouldn't have been caught.

She was arrested, but when the judge heard about her working to support the family and her children were in a children's home and her husband was spending money on alcohol and women, she was let off light. She served about 8 days in jail and paid something like $7.00 in fines.
