The body of an unknown man was found in the field near W.M. Dyer’s place Sunday afternoon. A bullet wound in the head while both hands were in his pockets clearly indicated murder. The victim was 25 to 30 years of age, weighed about 165 pounds and was about six feet tall. He wore a blue flannel shirt, pink underwear, new pair of bib overalls and good shoes. He was of Scandinavian birth and appeared clean and of more than ordinary intelligence so far as could be judged from the shape of his head and features.
