Dead Body Found On Railroad Track
NAKED FOUR MONTHS OLD INFANT HAD PROBABLY BEEN THROWN FROM TRAIN.
Forman, N.D., Feb 5.—A gruesome discovery made by section men on the Soo line a short distance out of the city, reveals what is believed to have been a fiendish crime on the part of someone, and it has been suggested as a plausible theory that the crime was committed by someone who boarded the train in the Twin Cities.
The body of a four-months-old child was found lying along the track and examination revealed that it had been dead for a considerable time, and in all probability was dead long before it was dropped along the railroad track. This leads the belief that the dead child was carried in the suitcase of someone who boarded the train at Minneapolis, and probably was thrown from a sleeping car window.
The officers will conduct an investigation and an effort will be made to locate the responsible parties.
