Died of Heart Disease

Fred Beaucamp, an old man who lived alone about seven miles east of this city, was found dead in his barn-yard early Tuesday morning by neighbors. The coroner was notified and he visited the place, “viewed” the body, and made an investigation which developed the belief that Beaucamp had died of heart disease. It appears that after making a fire of twigs, cooking and eating his frugal breakfast Beaucamp had gone into the lot to milk, and that while in the act of milking one of his cows, had fallen over and died. He had not been dead long when found, as the body was yet warm and the fire upon which he had cooked his breakfast was still smoldering.

The deceased was the father-in-law of Fred Sprier, was a widower, about sixty-eight years of age, and had been living alone on the place where he died several years. He was something of a recluse and had few acquaintances, as far as we can learn, outside of his immediate neighborhood.
