      The Late Murder

      Below we give the coroner’s verdict in regard to the murder of Henry Earley, at the Moline and Rock Island house. It was supposed the Earley was sleeping at the time he received the fatal shot, as he was found in an inclined position, his head resting upon a chair, and feet elevated upon another. His pockets were turned inside out, which led to the belief that he was murdered for money. Drs Truesdale and Knox held a post mortem examination and extracted the ball from Earley’s head. The jury returned the following verdict:

      “That said Henry Earley, deceased, came to his death from firearms in the hands of some person to us unknown, and from the best of our knowledge and belief, do declare the killing of said Henry Earley to be an act of willful murder” [1]
