Author Norman Mailer Believed Murdered 5:28 pm EST
BOSTON (Reuters) - Little known to the literary world, an autopsy was performed on Norman Mailer not long after his death. The local authorities were acting on a tip. A young French woman who had been caring for the grizzled old author is the subject of an active investigation. The young lady in question, 23, has been identified as one, Marie St. Lachette. Detectives were only recently able confirm her true identity through the help of INTERPOL and confirmation by her boyfriend, Jacques Dumont. This confirmation was only procured after he was arrested for transportation of stolen goods. It seems as the duo, Marie and Jacques, were stealing items from the combative author’s home for some time preceding his death. In order to obtain a lighter sentence, Dumont told the police a rather sordid story of Marie’s murderous intent. Additional information is pending release.
