Meletter was last seen Saturday evening, when in company with a mixed-blood Indian, he started from Bagley to Lengby. Both had been drinking and under the influence of liquor.
Struck on Head
Judging from the appearance of the wound found on the top of Melette’s head, he was struck either by a blunt instrument, or by an engine while lying on the track asleep. The remains were taken to Bagley by the coroner and an attempted is being made to inform relatives of the affair.
Had Large Roll of Bills
Parties who met Melette on Saturday evening believe his death to be foul play because when they saw him, he had quite a large roll of bills, and when his remains were discovered, only $1.50 in silver was found on his body. The matter is to be investigated by Clearwater county authorities.
Three in Five Years
This is the third time that remains of persons that have been killed or murdered, have been found on the Great Northern right-of-way in that locality during the past five years.
