BODY OF BABY FOUND UNDER BARN IN FARGO
Fargo, March 28.—The body of a newborn baby was found underneath a barn at the rear of the Bert Hartstein residence, 1212 First Ave S yesterday by William M Lord, 113 Twelfth St. S, while searching for his chickens.
The parents of the child are unknown. Police are conducting an investigation.
The body was wrapped only in a thin cloth and it was necessary to chop ice around the body in order to extricate it. The baby had apparently been frozen in the ice for several weeks.
An inquest will be held upon the return of H.F. Horner, state's attorney for Cass County, who is in Illinois and who expects to be back in Fargo Monday.
At the inquest an attempt will be made to determine how the child met its death.
