HELMETED OFFICERS LOOKI-G AT PCQR,INNOCENT CONVICT.
31-year-old ex-convict George Keene appears
at a "show-up" before Fort Worth police officers
after his arrest this morning. He had been
sought since he allegedly threatened a
policeman and his family in a telephone call.
Police Chief Hightower said the call probably
won't be grounds for charges to be filed, that
he ordered Keene picked up so officers could
see him. Keene, accordirz to police, fought
two deputy sheriffs and a Texas Ranger in
January when they questi-oned him about the death
of ex-convict Sid 5 Foley. Foley's body was
found in a garbage dump near Lake Worth -- the
crime is still unsolved.
This police identification photograph of Keene
shows him before he had his hair cut short and
dyed red. Newspaper stories have charged
that Keene tried to become a "name" in the
underworld,to replace two slain ex-leaders,
Tincy Eggleston and Cecil green.###
