San Francisco Chronicle, November 11, 1891. Ah, the lost elegance of railway travel . . .
Did they ever solve the case? I need to know how it turned out! There are so many things wrong with the way the body was found that it almost certainly must be a murder.
No idea. Perhaps I’ll stumble upon a follow-up some day. I wanna know how the hands stayed folded over his breast.
My best guess: his arms were folded over his chest while he was lying down. Then either simple cold or rigor mortis kept them there after the body was hung from the tree.
Works for me, Holmes.
