Unknown Dead Baby Fished From Weil.
Between IX) and 11 o'clock
Monday morning ' an object
was discovered by some ner
gro boys ina well on E Fishei
street near Lee. The find
was reported to, the police
who succeeded in bringing it
o the surface and learned
that it was a well-developed
white girl baby. It was left
lying on the well frame for
some time and was later tak
en in chargn by the county
coroner, D L Sides. Around
the child's neck was a cord
drawn tight and the body
was nudd and decay . had not
gone far enough to hide its
identify as a white child.
TheNegroes in that neigh
borhood use water from this
tvell-and it is not known just
how Jong the remains had
been in it, in fact nothing
is known more than is stated
above. The supposition,
which is probably correct, is
that it was strangled to
death and thrown in the well
for the purpose of hiding its
birth, Who its mother is
and who committed the
crime is yet to be learned.
It is believed the chilof . was
wrapped in something, paper
or cloth and the well was
dragged with the hope of ob
turning something that may
give a clue that will lead to
tho discovery of the criminals.
The body of a blue bathing
suit trimmed in white and a
half yard ot white silk hem
med on one edge was found.
The water will be pumped
out of the well in an effort to
discover other articles.
