Dead Man Believed Poor Farm Inmate
HENRY ROWELL, an inmate of the County Farm for 5 years, who was last seen at the farm on June 23rd, is believed to be the same man whose body was found nude on the Freitas Ranch on Juy 26th.
Accoring to Frank H. Vanderbilt, Superintendent of the farm, Rowell had been in the habit of leaving the farm without telling anyone, but always came back.
The body was held at the parlors of Keaton and Dusel, until burial on Monday.
