The New York Times, Volume 93, Issue 31618, Friday, August 18, 1944


Includes "Student is Silent on Slaying Friend", p. 14, an article about the murder of David Kammerer by Burroughs friend Lucien Carr. Carr went to the homes of friends  William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac rather than turn himself in. He went to see Burroughs first and gave him Kammerer’s bloodied pack of cigarettes, and Burroughs suggested for Carr to turn himself over to the authorities.  The article does not mention Burroughs, but does mention that Kerouac was arrested as well.  Includes a photo of Lucien Carr.
