Another killing was apparcntl'. added today (o (!io long: list of uii- fdlved murder mysteries which have occurred on the shores of the Mississippi river. The body of a 55-year-old man, tentatively identified as Bill Hammer, moonshiner, was to be cut down from the lowest limb of a water elm on Syann Island and burled in an island grave tcday. There was little Indication that his death will ever be salved. Mississippi county officials viewed the. hanging corpse yesterday only to discover that the island is in Tennessee. Tennessee officers veer? lo cress the river to the island today.
