Friday evening a transient, name unknown, was struck and instantly killed by an east bound train, about 100 feet east of the Coon Creek station. The accident was first reported by the crew of the west bound 11:20 who saw the body lying beside the tracks. The remains were taken to the Wilcox-Thayer morgue. The victim had been struck on the back of the head and his brains cut out. Aside from this one wound the body was little mutilated.
