Frank Fox

Frank Fox, brakeman on through freight train 76, on the Fort Wayne road, in charge of conductor Travis, was last Friday night, about 11 o'clock, run over by the cars near Joliet bridge and killed, his body being horribly mangled. He was not missed from the train until it reached Wanatah at midnight when a telegram was sent to this place and search for the body was immediately instituted, and the remains were found a little east of the bridge lying between the rails of the main track. The wheels of the train had passed over both legs cutting them off and crushing them into jelly. The bones of both arms were broken and the head and face bruised and cut in numerous places. The portions of the body were gathered together by Undertaker Lepell and neatly prepared for burial. Mr. Fox was a young unmarried man about twenty-five years of age. His corpse was sent on the 11:30 train Saturday morning to the stricken relatives at his home in Fort Wayne.
