A nineteen-year-old youth, giving his name as G.C. Richardson, arrested here early today for investigation, has confessed the killing of Rabbi Alfred G. Lafee at San Francisco about three weeks ago, the police said late this afternoon.

A diary found in his posession, police said, definitely connected him with the crime.
