Drager, Obituary/Death NoticePorter County obituaries and death notices . . . .


The County.
A man named Drager was found dead lately in the Kankakee near Grape Island. He sold some land several weeks ago and the last seen of him was when he borrowed a neighbor's wagon to go to the river hunting. Yesterday Lorenzo Brainard found him floating in the river with a bullet hole in his head. He had been weighted down with some stones or iron, but not sufficiently to hold him after he had been awhile in the water. It is near the place where Cotton was murdered 4 or 5 years ago. We are told the owner of the wagon he borrowed has been arrested as the murderer. He lives in Jasper county.
