Seat Pleasant, MD Bomb Explosion, Jan 1930

AUTO MECHANIC CHARGED WITH SENDING BRIDE HOLIDAY BOMB WHICH KILLED THREE PERSONS

Brother Is Also Charged In Bombing Case

Four Others of Family Seriously Hurt As Bomb Explodes

Seat Pleasant, MD., Jan 9(AP)—Leroy Brady, automobile mechanic and brother of Herman Brady, was charged with murder today in connection with the death of Mrs. Naomi Hall Brady, wife of Herman and her younger brother and sister in a bomb explosion here New Year’s Day.

Herman Brady, who with his brother was taken into custody a few days ago, is still in jail and no charge has been placed against him. Officers said they expected him to be an important witness.

The bomb which caused the deaths and injuries to four others of the John Hall family, Mrs. Brady’s father, was delivered at a neighbor’s home a day or two after Christmas and was in turn taken to the Hall home. It was addressed to Mrs. Brady, and thinking it was a belated Christmas package, the members of her family gathered around her as she opened it.
