MASKED VIGILANTE KILLED IN BLAZE
By Thomas Drury
The man Gotham City has come to know only as "Batman" has apparently met his end. Early Saturday morning, police followed the so-called "Caped Crusader" as he made his way into a downtown office building moments before the structure burst into flame. While his body has not been found, investigators believe it was burned beyond recognition in the massive fire which destroyed the office of psychiatrist Gus Tanhoger and several other tenants between the hours of 4 and 6 a.m.
The "Batman" appeared to be seriously wounded when he disappeared into the building, according to eyewitness accounts. The colorful and controversial figure had not been seen for several weeks prior to the incident.
Dr. Tanhoger was unavailable for comment.
