FOUND DEAD LYING ON PISTOL.
Body, Discovered by Boy in East Part of City, Bore Watch and Money.
The body of an unidentified man, about 25 years old, was found lying across the sidewalk at Cambridge and Independence avenues a few minutes before midnight last night.
There was a bullet wound in the man's head and a revolver was found lying under the body. In the man's pocket was a gold watch and $45 in money.
While the indications are those of suicide, the police believe that there may be a reason to suspect murder from the fact that the revolver was lying beneath the body.
The body was discovered by Raymond Bachellor, a high school pupil, who lives at 609 Cambridge avenue. Bachellor told the police that his first thought was the man was drunk. Making a closer observation the boy discovered the bullet wound. He immediately notified the police of the Seventh district.
The dead man was about 5 feet 8 inches in height and weighted about 150 pounds. He was of light complexion. The initials C. Y. were stamped on a belt he wore and on a scrap of paper in his pocket was written the name Delgum.
Dr. Fritz J. Moenniighoff, deputy coroner, had the body sent to Blackman's undertaking rooms.
