The body of an unknown man was discovered in the Missouri river about 12 miles east of this place Tuesday. When found the body was partially in the water and so decomposed as to be unrecognizable. Wolves had torn the head off and a part of the skull was found a number of rods away, while the jaw bone was still further distant, much of the body too, had been eaten. The man was seemingly about thirty-five years of age, and was dressed in duck or overalling, but there was nothing further on the body with which to identify it. It is thought to be the body of a man seen several times in the same locality, and who, from his actions, was supposed to be insane. If this is true, the man probably starved to death.
