A Beverly Hills private investigator, testifying Thursday in the "Cotton Club" murder hearing, implicated key prosecution witness William Rider in two murders and claimed that he was offered $15,000 by Rider to commit a third killing. Under cross-examination by defense lawyers, investigator Arthur Michael Pascal chipped away at Rider's credibility. Last week, Rider linked Hollywood mogul Robert Evans and "Cotton Club" defendant Elayne (Lanie) Greenberger to the 1983 slaying of theatrical producer Roy Radin.

Not too long ago Larry Flynt (publisher of Hustler magazine) wore our beloved flag as a diaper. I was enraged and The Times published my letter stating my feelings. Now that the Supreme Court has ruled it is permissible to desecrate our national symbol, I feel I owe Mr. Flynt a public apology. Sorry 'bout that, Larry. MARY E. HAYES Lakewood

A Simi Valley cartoonist who created Hustler magazine's "Chester the Molester" cartoon and is charged with child molesting often said, "You can't write this stuff all the time if you don't experience it," according to court documents. The cartoonist, Dwaine Tinsley, 43, was arrested last month after an 18-year-old told police he had molested her for five years. Police searched Tinsley's home on May 18. The search warrant, which was filed Thursday in Ventura Municipal Court, included an affidavit by Simi Valley Detective Gary Gilloway outlining the statements of the young woman, who lives in Chatsworth.
