UNKNOWN MAN

[Source: Wheeling Register, Tuesday, January 10, 1871]

FROZEN TO DEATH.

We are informed that a stranger was frozen to death in Bellaire on Friday night. No inquest was held and no one seems to know anything about him. We endeavored to get his name and the particulars of his death yesterday but were unsuccessful in learning more than the mere fact of his being frozen to death.

UNKNOWN MAN

FROZEN TO DEATH.

We stated a day or two since that an unknown man had been frozen to death in Bellaire. From the Bellaire Standard we have the following:

"Early last Saturday morning a man was found dead near Ann Reed’s saloon in this city. On his person was found some tobacco, a penknife, a pocket handkerchief and a written petition to the public for alms, upon the back of which was written the name “Randolph Laeng," but whether that was the name of the deceased or not is unknown."

A coroner's inquest was held and the jury found the following verdict:

“After having heard the evidence and examined the body, we do find the deceased came to his death from the effects of liquor obtained from Ann Reed's saloon, causing intoxication and exposure, by laying out of doors near said saloon.”
