A MELBOURNE MURDER

Police inquiring Into the murder of Mrs. Pauline Thompson are being assisted by American army authorities. Endeavors are being made to trace an American soldier who was seen in her company for three hours on Friday night in a hotel not far from where the body was found. Detectives may have to undertake the colossal task of checking the movements of all Americans on leave that night.
