JEFFREY DAHMER

No Auction For Killer's Belongings

Serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer's belongings are headed for the incinerator, not the auction block, parties involved in the case said Tuesday.

"It's pretty much a done deal," said Thomas Jacobson, a lawyer who represents eight of the 11 families of Dahmer's victims seeking money from the killer's estate. He said the families decided "in a very close vote" to accept an offer from a Milwaukee civic group that has pledged $407,225 to buy Dahmer's belongings rather than allowing them to be auctioned.

He said the acceptance was contingent on lawyers for the estate agreeing to a cap of $50,000 on any fee they will charge for their work. That would leave $357,225, a little more than $32,000 for each of the 11 families. He said the three families he does not represent are likely to go along with the agreement.

SPACE SHUTTLE

Endeavour Readies For Return Home

The six-man crew of space shuttle Endeavour packed up on Tuesday to return from 10 days of satellite work that required more precision flying than any shuttle mission to date.

The shuttle was set for a 6:09 a.m. (St. Louis time) landing today at Cape Canaveral, Fla., but iffy weather could force a detour to Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.

The astronauts accomplished everything they set out to do, including the release of two experimental satellites and three subsequent encounters with one of them. Commander John Casper and pilot Curtis Brown Jr. spent 21 hours flying Endeavour in close proximity to other spacecraft, nearly three times longer than on any previous shuttle flight.

CANADA

Two Russians Suspected Of Spying

Canada said Tuesday it had detained two suspected Russian spies and begun deportation proceedings. Solicitor General Herb Gray said the two alleged agents used identities that belonged to deceased Canadian children.

"These kinds of attempts at surveillance or economic espionage or whatever it is that they were doing isn't very helpful . . . between two countries which are establishing good relations," Canadian Foreign Minister Lloyd Axworthy said in Ottawa.

Gray said he and Immigration Minister Lucienne Robillard had signed a deportation order for the couple. Gray's spokesman, Dan Brien, could not say for certain when or where the arrests occurred but said the two were probably apprehended last week in Toronto.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. said late Monday that the couple came to Canada in the early 1990s using false Canadian passports. They claimed to be married and to be Canadian citizens, CBC said.
