THIS REALLY OUGHT TO J MAKE MANAGER BEAN LAUGH
THE ONLY INDEPENDENT
Pictures above show the Gould farm house near Woodland mxl the secluded spot in the woods
200 yards from the house where lip body of George Handstrom lay for nearly three weeks. The.
dotted lino leading from the house to the cross where the body was round indicates the route the
boy took ou Ills fateful trip. • -■•*• \
Sheriff Longmire is today probing the death of
George Sandstrom, 16-year-old orphan boy. whose
body was found in the woods near the W. F. Gould
ranch house at Woodland, late Saturday, with a-bul
let hole through the temple.
Certain information in the hands of the sheriff and
Dick Fraier, a private detective, leads to the belief
that the lad was murdered.
Missing Since Nov. 5.
George Sandstrom had been
missing since Nov. 5. While
the Gould family were in Spana
way voting the boy disappeared.
Constant search, which has been
kept uj> since that time, failed
to bring to light the boy's body
or any trace of him until Satur
Lawrence Sandstrom, the 19
--year-old brother, who with Ar
thur, aged 24, and a sister,
Christine, 21 years old, had been
combing the woods since their
arrival here from Portland,
Ore., made the gruesome discov
ery within 200 yards of the
house where George had lived
with the Goulds for more than a
Rifle Across Body.
The flesh torn by wild ani
mals and a 22-caliber repeating
rifle lying across the legs, the
body was found lying face down
ward near a giant log in a part
of the dense forest where the
light seldom penetrates. A swamp
surrounded the place.
There are persons in Park
land and Spanaway whom the
sheriff will interview. These
persons are said to have made
startling statements to the pri
vate detective and deputies
while the hunt was in progress.
Sheriff Longmire does not
care to state at this time who is
being looked upon with suspi
cion, fearing great difficulty in
reaching the bottom of the mys
tery. Enough suspicious facts,
however, have been gathered to
warrant the officers in making
a thorough probe of the murder
