Terry’s Widow Answers Cole

Tacoma News Tribune – February 6, 1934

Taking exception to a statement by William Cole, state patrol chief, in connection with the reinstating of Cliff Tolson following the Rudger Terry shooting fatality, Mrs. Terry yesterday issued the following statement:

“Referring to articles in Tacoma papers, I wish to state that I did not repudiate my statement regarding Officer Tolson. In my first statement I stated I had smelled liquor on Mr. Tolson’s breath. I still say so, but did modify my statement by saying the liquor may have been taken after the shooting. I also wish to state that I did not apologize to the man who killed my husband.

(Signed)

“MRS. GEORGEA TERRY”
