BODY IS IDENTIFIED AS THAT OF WILLIAM CAREY
The body found in the north fork of the Clearwater River several days ago by H. P. Barnes, Lewiston, was not that of Charles Peters, placer miner, but the body of William Carey, forest service employee, drowned June 12 at the mouth of Skull creek, according to a report from the coroner of Clearwater county.
When taken from the water, was badly decomposed and identification was almost out of the question, but identification was later made by the clothes worn.
The body was interred at Teakean cemetery Thursday afternoon.
