Jacob Foster

Missing Michigan Man Was Brutally Murdered in Missouri.

NEW CARLISLE, Ind., June 19. -- The mystery surrounding the recent disappearance of Jacob Foster of Three Oaks, Mich., has been solved by the finding of his body, buried under the house where Esther Castle and C. L. Castle, also former residents of Three Oaks, lived at Greensburg, Mo.

Castle, who was under suspicion for the murder of Foster, committed suicide, and advices received here say Esther Castle has been placed under arrest as an accomplice, if not a principal, in the murder. Foster was, it is believed, beaten to death and his body buried in the cellar by the Castles, who apparently had no motive for the crime.

Relatives at Three Oaks have been advised of the finding of Foster's body.
