Boston-AP — Authorities say the convicted murderer accused of killing former priest John Geoghan (GAY’-gun) in prison has been hospitalized after swallowing something in his cell.
A spokesman for the Massachusetts prison system says Joseph Druce (droos) swallowed an object in his cell late Friday and was taken to an outside hospital for treatment. Druce’s injuries are not life-threatening, but he remains in the hospital under guard.
I noticed the pronunciation guide the used for Geoghan (GAY’-gun) and it reminded me of a similar case where a name pointed to a possible problem.
While stationed in Norfolk after Warrant Officer Johnny Walker was arrested for espionage I found out that he had lived a couple of blocks from where we were living at the time. It is bad enough when someone betrays us to the Russians, but a former enlisted man who became a Warrant Officer doing it really angered me. Billions of dollars in damage done for a pay off of 10,000 dollars and all of this was preventable. Ask anyone to complete the sentence Johnny Walker… and they will say Red. This should have been an obvious clue he would work for the Soviet Union.
