Coast Guard Investigates "Bluebelle" Captain who Killed Himself

Nov. 21, 1961 - The Coast Guard, pursuing its investigation of the apparent mass killings aboard the sailboat Bluebelle, dug deeper today into the strange career of its skipper, Julian Harvey (pictured in Korea in 1953). Harvey committed suicide in a Miami hotel last Friday, less than 24 hours after little Terry Jo Duperrault, now the lone survivor of the tragedy, was picked up from a raft. A Coast Guard investigator said the crew of the Gulf Lion, which picked up Harvey and the body of Terry Jo’s dead sister Rene from a lifeboat 12 hours after the Bluebelle went down, would be questioned. At the Coast Guard’s request, the Miami police posted armed guards inside Terry Jo’s hospital room while she recovered from her ordeal at sea. The pretty blonde girl, who survived three and a half days aboard the raft, has fully recovered, but her physician indicated she would remain in the hospital another week.
