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


Last Saturday night the body of a man, about 33 years old found on the Michigan Central track near Crisman. The man had been struck by a passing train and killed. He was well dressed, good-looking, and could not be taken for a common tramp. On his person was found 70 cents in money. There were no papers or anything about him that would lead to his identification. A coroner's inquest was held, which revealed nothing beyond the fact that the man was dead, and probably came to his death by being accidently struck by the cars.
