man stationed at a Norfolk & Western
crossing, near Camp Luee, stopped a
troop train on the way to the camp
from this city shortly before noon to
(lay and informed the conductor that
he had seen a murder committed near
the crossing where he was stationed.
Ing four men drove up to a pohit near
him, but concealed by a clump of
hushes. There were some angry words,
and suddenly one of the occupants
of the car drew his pistol and shot
one of his companions four tiies. ihe
other three men then pulled the dend
man out of the machine and tried to
bulry his body. The flagman asked
assistance in apprehending the mur
derers, and a party of soldiers left the
train and went with him to the spot.
The men ha d gone, but the freshly
dug earth where they had started to
bury the body was plainly visible. The
bod(y also had disappeared.
