While playing around the lake at'
Long View park yesterday afternoon j
between 4 and 5 o'clock. John and ,
Ora Littig. who reeide at 11S7 Sev
enteenth street, noticed a partially'
submerged suitrase in the east end j
of the lake, near the shore. I'pon !
pulling it oat and opening it, theyj
discovered the body of an infant boy. ;
wrapped in a black cloth. The po-i
lice were immediately notified, aDd 1
Chief James Brinn and City Elec
trician Vincent Murphy drove out'
to the park. Coroner Roee was noti-l
tied and ordered the body taken to :
Wheelan's undertaking parlors. An '
inquest was held this afternoon at 4
o'clock, at which Dr. Stocker made
an examination of the body.
BODY EL.L. PRLiEK ED.
The suit case was lying but a few i
feet from the eaet shore, and was !
tilted upward, one end being out of
the water on account of the suitcase
resting on a rock. The water at the
point where the suitcase lay is only
about one foot deep. It was impos-j
Bible to tell this morning Just how :
long the body had been in the wa-!
ier, as the suitcase was partial!" bur-;
id in the mud, and the cold weather,
would preserve the body fairly well, j
The child's eyes 'were grown togeth
er, which leads some to believe that
it bad been born dead and that the
parents were unable to provide for,
the funeral e.p-"n?es. This theory j
is not a general one. however. f
MlHDtJR IS M l'f;i TKI.
Another supposition is that the
mother of the child, desiring to rid
herself of her offr-pring. took this
means of acorn pliphlng her aim.,
F"rrni the position of the suitcase.;
and owing to the clone proximity of
the drive to the pond, there is a pos-'
fcibility that the suitcase, which was
weighted down with a rock, vasi
thrown from n rip, while driving,
through the park.
