Was He Murdered?
Palestine, Tex., Sept. 8. - Albert Bosse, a German about 30
years of age, was found dead in the public roadway, three
miles from this city yesterday morning. He left here Sunday
on horseback to go to his farm. He was raving in a delirium
yesterday and the attention of a physician put him in a
condition to return to the city. A negro man claims that he
saw him at the place where he was found, on horseback, and
that he looked suddenly up toward the sun, reeled in his saddle
and feel dead to the ground. There was quite a gash over each
of his eyes and other bruises. The surface of the ground where
he fell is smooth and free from anything that could cut or
bruise him. This coupled with the absence of a watch and chain
he always wore, had led his friends to strongly suspect foul
play. Bosse was a baker and was employed in the Lone Star
bakery of this city for the past nine years. He was single,
and his relatives live in Germany. He owned a good farm near
here and his life was insured in the Sons of Hermann of which
order he was a member.
No Kin, just passing on an interesting find.
