MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) – A posse swarmed over the wild woodlands of Crater Lake National Park today in an attempt to trap an eccentric mountain woodsman suspected of slaying two General Motors executives.

FBI agents and state and local police joined park rangers in the manhunt for 67-year-old George Dunkin, who also is a suspect in the murder of a state police officer last month.

The bodies of C. P. Culhane, 55, Detroit, Mich., and A. M. Jones, 56, Concord, Calif., were found Monday. The men were gagged with their own neckties and their shoes were missing.

Culhane, general sales manager of United Motors Service, and Jones, West Coast sales manager of the General Motors subsidiary, were reported missing Saturday when they failed to keep a fishing date with two Klamath Falls, Ore. men.
