G. Beatty and M. H. Kane while out hunting quail on the Beatty ranch Sunday afternoon. - From the appearance of the body the man had evidently been dead for some time, and it is thought that he was aged about 65 years. - Mr. Beatty stated that the place where the body was located was two miles southeast of Stanfield ranch on the Beatty ranch. He found $6.50 in silver in the pockets of the trousers and vest, a pocket comb, mirror, match box, knife and several lead pencils. No papers were found that would give a clue to the man's identity. His shoes were missing. There were patches on the knees of his pants. - The ranch is rented by Cornelius Conneghan as a cattle range. - Coroner Hopkins, upon arrival at the scene of the discovery of the body, removed it to Stanfield Hill, where a jury consisting of the following citizens was impaneled: Byron Burris, M. V. Hendricks, John McGinn, Maurice Kane, A. W. Gentry and Timothy Dolan. - A verdict of death from causes unknown was returned.
Marysville Evening Democrat - Wed 7/12/1911, p4 - Body of Unknown Man Found In Feather River - Gridley, July 12. - The drowned body of a man was found yesterday afternoon, hanging to a snag a quarter of a mile above the Feather river bridge near this place. The corpse was clothed only in shirt and pants, void of stockings, shoes or coat. The man had evidently been dead for some time. - The body was found by men who noticed a peculiar object attached to the snag and went to investigate. They reported the matter to Theodore Arnold, a rancher living nearby, and he notified the Gridley officers. Coroner Wallace was summoned from Chico, and he arrived her shortly before 5 o'clock and will make an investigation in an effort to establish the identity of the man, and if possible learn the circumstances attending the death. - A close examination made on behalf of the coroner proved the man to be about fifty years of age, six feet tall, of sandy complexion and his weight about 180 pounds. On the bank above where the body was found were other articles of wearing apparel belonging to the man, together with a roll of blankets and some fishing tackle. - There was a log extending into the river on which it was evident the drowned man had sat to fish, and the surmise is that he lost his balance in some way and was held beneath the water by his clothing catching on a snag. A physician examined the body late last night and declared that death evidently occurred five days ago.
Appeal Democrat - Tue 9/27/1927, p7 - Body of Babe Found Buried In Sand Bank - Children playing in the sand near the automobile camp ground north of Simpson Lane, in the eastern outskirts of Marysville found the dead body of a girl baby late yesterday. - Investigation by Coroner Frank Lipp revealed that the body had been buried in a shallow grave in the sand a short distance from where it was found, and the supposition is that dogs dug it out. - The proprietor of the camp ground was informed of the find by the children and took charge of the body, placing it in a box until Coroner Lipps' arrival, when it was removed to the mortuary of Lipp & Sullivan pending its burial today in the city cemetery. - Dr. John A. Duncan was called to examine the body and gave it as his opinion that the baby was either stillborn or had died soon after birth, and that it had been buried about ten days ago. - Decomposition was so far advanced that it was impossible to say whether it was a white or a colored child, but from various facts brought to light it has been decided that it was probably the child of a Mexican woman. - The scene of the burial is a short distance upstream from the Simpson Lane bridge and back of the auto camp ground. There is more or less brush in that vicinity. - A number of traveling families of Mexicans had camped in the grounds recently, and it is the opinion of those investigating the case that one of the women was the mother of the baby, and that on its death it was hastily buried and the family moved on to some other camp. There is little likelihood that the identity of the parents can be discovered. - As there is no suspicion of murder, no extensive search will be made.
