MYSTERY
Of the Death of Robert Floyd Yet
Unsolved.
Jury Said he Was Blown to His
Death.
An inquest has been held over the
body of Robert Floyd, who was mur
dered Tuesday night at his home near
Mannlngton.
The Jury returned the following ver
dict:
"We find that the said Robert 1*.
Floyd came to his death un the 23d
day of December, 1902, at his residence
in Mannlngton district, Marion coun
ty, West Virginia, about the hour of
9:15 o'clock p. m., from a terrific ex
plosion which wrecked and ruined the
greater part of his dwelling house and
crushed four or five of his ribs on the
left side and otherwise injured aud
bruised him, which crushing and
bruises instantly killed him, and
which explosion was caused by the ex
ploding or some high explosive, believ
ed to be nltro-glycerlne, at and under
the dwelling house fit said Floyd

person or persons to the Jury as yet
unknown, with intent to feloniously,
millclously, deliberately and unlaw
fully slay, kill and murder said Robt.
P. Floyd."

thorities were unable to get blood
