Henry Haase

Another Unfortunate.
About 12 o'clock Thursday night C. W. Sackett, conductor of the Lake Shore sand train, saw the body of a man lying near the tracks three fourths of mile west of Dune Park, and notified the men on arriving at the Station. Night Ooperator Moses, J. M. Connelly and Mr. Bishop went down on a hand car and found the body of an unknown man lying on the south track. Both legs were cut off above the ankle, and the right side and stomach were badly crushed. The remains were put aboard the second section of No. 76 and brought to Chesterton and taken to Lundberg's undertaking rooms. The body is that of a man about 35 years old, light complexion, 5 feet 8 or 9 inches tall, and weighs about 175 pounds, dressed in a dark brown suit of clothes. A piece of soap and a number of cigar stumps were found in his pockets. There was nothing about the man's clothing that would lead to the identification of the man.

[Note: A coroner's inquest published in the September 30, 1899, issue of The Chesterton Tribune, indicates that the man was identified as Henry Haase.]
