W V Burdick, white driving along the Pleasant Valley road yesterday morning gound the dead body of John Dufore of East Jordan, lying along the side of the road four miles from this city, on the top of the hill beyond a patch of woods.

He has several relatives in this city. Mr and Mrs Paul Dufore and Mr and Mrs Joseph Dufore being cousins of the dead man. The deceased has been a resident of East Jordan for over 32 years and is known by everyone.
The remains were taken to East Jordan last night by Mr Whittington og that place and his son Leonard.
