Default Frank Edwards

I wonder whether anyone has looked for this fellow....
Although it doesn't state his name was Frank Edwards in this piece...we have this story elsewhere on the boards and within the article it does mention him as being Frank Edwards.
His cousin would have been 11 or 12 at the time of the murders.

Am I missing something? How do we know he was Frank Edwards? Two cousins will only share a surname if they are father's brother's offspring. Other things being equal, it's a 25% chance.

Bob:
Yesterday, I was certain we had an article which gave the guy, Frank, the surname Edwards...now it seems I might be wrong.

At least we've got this George Henry Edwards to check into, if someone wanted to, that is.
