QUEST AT EASTLAKE
Investigation by the Coroner's Jury

The inquest at Eastlake of the kill killing

the coroner's jury deciding that it
did not know who was responsible for
It is likely that the jury didn't have
' the best facilities for arriving at any
other decision. But it neglected to do
the most' neessary thing, and the one
that would have been done first in al almost
most almost any inquest. It failed to have
the negro's body exhumed and the bul bullet
let bullet extracted.
Each, of the three deputies had a
gun of different make. If the bullet
in the negro's body does not fit any
of their guns it will be proof positive
that no one of them fired the fatal
shot. If it fits one of them, it will
clear the other two, and leave the
third to share the probability that he

One incident that shows the officers
did not attach much importance at

that one of them informed Judge
Wynne on the morning after the
shooting that the man's body was
