George Sipel was an American No-Maj pig and cattle dealer who lived in Middlebush, New Jersey in the early 20th century.[1][2]

Sipel was subpoenaed to testify in the the trial of Mrs Hall for the 14 September 1926 murders of Rev. Mr Hall and Mrs Mills.[1][2] A Mrs Gibson had reported that she had seen Mrs Hall in De Russey Lane with a male companion on the night of the murders.[1][2] Sipel was to be questioned as to whether he was driving the automobile that Mrs Gibson claimed illuminated the faces of Mrs Hall and her companion.[1][2] Mrs Gibson claimed that she heard that Sipel had told his friend, John Garry, that he had seen her that night.[1][2] Sipel denied this claim and reportedly showed a "frantic eagerness" to avoid testifying.[1][2] The testimony of Sipel was said to call into question alternate testimony from Nellie Lo Russell on the whereabouts of Mrs Gibson on the night of the murders.[1][2] The trial was reported on in the 6 December 1926 issue of the New York Chronicle.[1]
