Further information concerning Joe Bushway, transient prowler and alleged burglar arrested in Moorhead by P. E. Malvey, chief of police, and taken to Minneapolis by officials Wednesday, reveal that he is wanted for questioning in connection with the murder of a railroad watchman in Minneapolis in September, 1929.
Alleged to have admitted a connection with the murder in remarks made to his relatives, Bushway also faces the possibility of a life sentence under the habitual criminal laws.
Previously convicted of three charges ranging from burglary to assault with weapons, Bushway faces material evidence in the form of a stolen watch, held by Minneapolis authorities. He is wanted there for burglarizing 14 Minneapolis residences.
"I have prowled more homes in Minneapolis than I can remember," the alleged burglar told Chief Malvey Tuesday. He is alleged to have prowled a Moorhead residence, but no charge was brought on this count.
"He is gone from Moorhead for good," said Malvey today.
Captain of Detectives Herbert A. Paradeau and Detective Clarence McClaskey transported Bushway to Minneapolis Tuesday.
