and the supposition now Is that he walked
out on the ico of the North riatte near

head and that his body floated down when
the Ice broke up. A large scar from u
carbuncle on the leg, a crosscut on the arm,
the make of the clothes and Hoe it and the
comb and knife found in the pockets
enabled Coates to positively identify the
man as his father-in-law. There could
have een little motive for murder as the
man presumably had no money and tne
position of the wounds on the head indicate
that he himself held the gun which caused
