Father Suspected Of Killing 2 Babies

Compiled From Wire Services

A man suspected of burying alive a son he had fathered with his own daughter sent authorities Tuesday to the basement where he said he had buried their second child in 1970.

Firefighters and police dug under the cellar floor where Mendum Paul Corvin, 61, and three daughters once lived. They dug for about eight hours without finding any sign of the infant girl and planned to resume looking today.

Corvin’s daughter, now a 39-yearold bartender in Florida, told police last weekend that her father had killed her newborn children in 1968 in Boynton Beach, Fla., and in 1970 in Scottdale.
