Marks of Violence on Body of Miss
The' finding of a body, believed to be
that of Miss Pauline Sullivan, in a lake

caused Lieutenant W. B. Sullivan, of
the United States Marine Corps, sta

Sullivan, of 4617 Sansom street, brother
and sister of the missing girl, to go to
the capita) to Identify the body.
Dr. Leroy T. Howard, the family phy
sician, said the body was Miss Sullivan,
ancl thinks the mystery of the 17-year-old
girl's' disappearance on December 14,
1914, har been cleared up. But the mystery
of hqw she came to her death remains,
marks of violence on the body pointing
to murder. Miss Sullivan, who was not
acquainted wl(h the country surrounding
Lake No, 5, where the body was found
late Saturday, would hardly have chosen
the spot for suicide, the police believe.
