FMD MAN’S BODY M CREEK
_ ♦-_____—.—
The quietness of this little
village was rudely broken last
Monday morning and the citi
zens thrown into a dither of
excitement by a gruesome dis
covery by a little child on its
way to school.
As the child wended its way
to school it happened to glance
toward the creek and what it
saw sticking up from the murky
waters was a “creepy” sight—
a part of an arm a.rd a h-rPo
upraised as if in a silent appeal
for help—help that did not come.
The child gave the alarm and
the police were notified by Mrs.
Cora Bryant of 13705 Albany
avenue.
The body attached to the arm
and hand was that of Willie
Riles, 41, who had last been seen
Saturday night. He was then
on his way home, reports say.
Police say there were no
marks on the face or other
parts of the body that would
indicate foul play, other than
superficial scratches that would
obviously be caused by a fall.
However,, the inquest has been
postponed until April 23rd to
permit further investigation.
The body was taken in charge
by Crook’s Funeral Home.
