Farnham St., apparently some time July 31. His body was found Friday about 7 p.m. The jiirors, at the inquest conducted by Dr. Jackson K. Erffmeyer, Knox County coroner, at the Larson Funeral Home, Abingdon, also stated in the verdict that the action apparently was due to mental depression. Testifying at the inquest were Kepple's wife, Mrs. Neola Kepple; his son, Robert C. Kepple, and Officer Ronald Morehead of the Galesburg Police Department. Mrs. Kepple testified that she and her husband had been separated for about five months and that he had lived alone at the Farnham Street address since March. Her husband had been in a mental hospital in 1948, 1950 and 1957, and previously had threatened to commit suicide, but to her knowledge had not attempted the act, Mrs. Kepple told the jurors. Found Depressed The son testified that he knew his father had been depressed by the wayhe talked, but to him he had never said anything about suicide. Officer Morehead told of the check of the residence, after a neighbor notified police headquarters that Kepple had not been seen for about 10 days, and described the finding of the body in the basement. Daily papers, dating from July 31, one carton of milk and one loaf of bread were found on the porch, the officer said. Dr. Erffmeyer told of being called to the residence and stated that the man apparently had been dead a week or 10 days. In view of papers oh the porch since July 31, in all probability death must have taken place on that date, the coroner said. Funeral services were conducted today at 2:30 p.m. in the Larson Funeral Home, with Rev. James Smith of First Christian Church, Galesburg, officiating. Organ music was by Mrs. Harold Dunlap. Burial was in Abingdon Cemetery. Pallbearers were Don Mc- CulloUgh, William Burr, Bud Cozad, Celburne Lindsey, John Ray and Russell Turney.
