Frank Family Cook Questioned Severely

After spending the night in jail and after intense questioning, Minola McKnight - the Frank family cook - signed a statement saying Leo Frank was very nervous and drinking heavily the night after the murder of Mary Phagan. She said she overheard Frank’s wife say he made her sleep on the rug and kept asking for his pistol so he could shoot himself. Frank had told her “It is mighty bad, Minola. I might have to go to jail about this girl, and I don’t know anything about it.” Finally she said her wages had been raised as a “tip to keep quiet.”
