CADAVER PROVED HIS SON
-------
Alabama Man Identifies Body of His Murdered Boy
-------
EUFAULA, Ala., Feb. 26.—Jarrett Engram, aged about 25 years, who resided 3 miles north of the city, has been missing since Christmas. Nothing was known as to his whereabouts until two weeks ago, when it was learned here that a cadaver had been found floating in the river 70 miles south of the city.
The description given of the body corresponded to that of the young man, and his father left immediately to investigate. Mr. Engram returned after having identified the remains of his son. In the young man’s mouth was found a ladies’ handkerchief and there were bruises about the neck and chest.
When last seen young Engram was at the home of Anna Vaugh and Gertrude Howard, and these parties have been arrested and lodged in jail as suspects. Search warrants have been issued and several houses examined to ascertain if any clue can be found.
Young Engram was an only child and came from one of the best families in the county. He bore a good reputation for honesty and diligence and has hosts of warm friends throughout this section.
