Hi, Hitler!

February 13, 1994--Macon (Ga) Telegraph

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--A white supremacist wants permission to wear a Ku Klux Klan robe and be called ``Hi Hitler'' at his murder trial. Donald Leroy Evans is accused of strangling Ira Jean Smith, a Fort Lauderdale prostitute, in 1985. In motions filed Friday, Evans asked to be allowed to wear the KKK robe, and for his name to be changed on all court documents to ``the honorable and respected name of Hi Hitler.'' According to courthouse employees, Evans thought Adolf Hitler's followers said ``Hi Hitler'' rather than ``Heil Hitler.'' Broward Circuit Court Judge Sheldon Schapiro did not immediately rule on the motion. Evans, 38, already has been sentenced to death for murdering and raping a 10-year-old homeless girl in Mississippi. Investigators are examining his claims that he killed 60 people in 21 states.
