MURDER THEORY IS STUDIED IN DEATH OF UNIDENTIFIED MAN GONZALES,' Nov. 19 (UP)—Th body of an unidentified man, muti latod by a train at Waelder north east of here, lay in an unmarke< grave today while authorities in vestigated a murder theory. County Attorney Denver Perkins ordered the inquest verdict held up pending his efforts to identify the victim through tattoo marks on the body and by fingerprints. Perkins said the body had been struck by an east-bound train at Waelder early yesterday, but evidence evidence did not establish definitely that the man, about 40, was killed by the train. Investigation revealed that the man might have been slain elsewhere elsewhere and that the body might have been placed on the tracks to cover up the crime, Perkins said. Nobodv has appeared here to claim the body.
