|While detectives yesterday sought a
motive to explain the slaying Tuesday night of Rev.
William J. Fisk, 33, Seattle head of a religious
mystical church, the attorney of a man suspected of
shooting him turned over a pistol to Prosecutor Charles
A short time after the Rev. Mr. Fisk was shot by a man who interrupted a meeting he was conducting at 1112½-4th Ave., Russell Edward Johnson, 36, of 3882 NE 91st St., a carpenter and contractor, arrived at police headquarters with his attorney and surrendered.
JOHNSON made no statement on advice of his attorney, police said, but he did ask:
"Is the guy dead?"
Johnson was advised by his attorney, E. Theme Carras, to make no statements.
In the latest development yesterday, Carras arrived at Carrol's office with a foreign-made pistol and a handful of cartridges which he turned over to the prosecutor.
Records in the King County Clerk's office, meanwhile, disclosed that Johnson's wife, Norma, had filed suit for divorce Tuesday. The couple has four children, ranging in age from seven months to six years. Mrs. Johnson asked for support for herself and the children.
THE SURRENDER of the pistol came after Carroll had secured from Justice of the Peace Evangeline Starr a search warrant directing Carras to turn over all material evidence connected with the case.
When Carras surrendered the pistol, he merely said that he was surrendering "a gun."
He was given a receipt signed by J. E. Kennedy, assistant chief criminal deputy prosecuting attorney, stating that:
"The property was released under protest and that all rights were reserved for Russell Edward Johnson allowing him to make motions to suppress."
It further stated that the results of any ballistic tests would be given to Johnson and his counsel when completed.
WITNESSES to the shooting told police the Rev. Mr. Fisk was conducting a special class in the downtown headquarters of the Church of Scientology of Washington State when a man walked into the room.
The Rev. Mr. Fisk told his students, "This man is going to shoot me . . . Go get a cop."
They said the man fired a single shot and walked from the room.
