Disappearance of an Illinoisan Solved by
the Finding of His Skeleton in Arizona
Carbondale, Ill., Aug. 26.ŚRichard Roberts, formerly residing in Jackson county, went to Needles, Cal., several years ago. His skeleton was recently found on an Arizona desert, where he, doubtless, became lost while prospecting. In a satchel near the body were found letters and other effects that positively identified him.
