Jim Conley Arrested

In Atlanta, John Gantt and Arthur Mullinax, no longer suspects in the murder of Mary Phagan, were released from custody. Newt Lee and Leo Frank were still being held in the Fulton County jail. Although the local media apparently did not know it (or at least didn’t report it) a third man was arrested around 2:00 p.m. on May 1. Jim Conley, a sweeper at the factory, was discovered trying to rinse out a soiled shirt. Upon further investigation the stains on his shirt proved to be blood.
