K. Criswell was found near Millburn, this county, on the Brady and Milburn road. He had been shot twice in the face nnd onco through the head, from the effects of which he died. His team, hitched to a wagon loaded with sorghum cane hay, was found by the roadside, wound up in the brush, near where his body lay. It is supposed that he was shot while on the hay and when he fell off the team wandered into the woods. There is no clew lending to the detection of the perpetrator of the fearful deed. This is the seconf murder that has been committed close to Millburn In the past few months. The perpetrator appears to have taken his victim by surprise, as did the murderer of Dorse(?) White, near Millburn. ------------------------------------------------------ San Antonio Daily Light August 17th, 1888 The Brownwood. mail carrier has brought news to Brady that the body of J. G.
