C B Caffey discovers dead body
The Austin Weekly Statesman, October 1, 1896
His Friends Here Have Not Seen Him for Several Days Past and the Description is Very Similar.
Yesterday Messrs. J. C. Hunt and C. B. Caffey of Bastrop came into the city and told the police of the finding of the body of a strange man floating in the river about ten miles above Bastrop, about one mile below Colorado Chapel. The gentlemen were seen by a Statesman reporter, to whom they stated that, the body was found last Saturday floating in the river. Mr. Hunt observed it first, and calling some assistance, fished it out, and later it was buried in the graveyard near the chapel where it was found. The gentlemen interested did not know the name of deceased nor was there anything on the body to identify it. They have a suspicion, however, that it is the body of Bill Dodson, who is well known in this city, having followed the avocation of a fisherman up the river here for a number of years. The identity is only suspicion, however, and it may turn out to be Bill, though he has not been seen by his friends for nearly a week past, and some fear that it might be him. Mr. Caffey gave a description of the dead man, which goes to prove him a man of between 40 and 45 years of age. He was about 5 feet 8 inches high and had sandy hair and mustache streaked with gray. There was about three days growth of beard on his face at the time of his death. He looked to be a man who would weigh about 140 pounds. He had on a black vest, dark colored jean pants and lace box-toed shoes, No. 9. There was nothing in any of his pockets to identify him. There was a small key in one pocket that another fisherman identified as belonging to Dodson but in this he may be mistaken. The gentlemen in question also reported that just prior to finding the body they also discovered floating down the river the body of a horse, and a saddle was floating in the immediate vicinity of the horse. These may have some connection with the dead man and they may not. Messrs. Hunt and Caffey came to town yesterday to see if they could ascertain the identity of the deceased. They saw several gentlemen in the city who were in the habit of seeing Dodson when he was in Austin, and from them it was learned that he had not been seen for several days. The butcher where Dodson was in the habit of going regularly for his meat, says that he has not seen him for several days, and some of Dodson s friends in the city are fearful of the fact that the dead man is none other than Bill, but further investigation may develop that it is someone else.
