Then, on Nov. 28, four months later, the mystery surrounding the boy's disappearance was uncovered when three rabbit hunters stumbled across the skeleton of the boy in the stubble of a cornfield alongside Rt. Ill, a few miles south of lhe pary. Examination of the remains by an Al ton pathologist, Dr. Henry Hal ley, revealed no clue into the boy's death. A 6 man coroners jury returned a verdict of "death by reasons unknown. The discovery stepped up the investigation. Road blocks were set up on the Poag road near the cornfield in an effort to locate persons who might offer some clue to the mystery. New leads were uncovered, including one in January from a passerby who said be saw a scar-faced man on three occasions near the corn field. Law enforcemenl agencies un der the direction of Madison County Sheriff George Musso and Deputy Sheriff Clyde Tisdel Jr, continue to work on the case. Assisting the sheriff are Lt. Emil Toffant, Albert Bertagnolli and Jules Luber, representatives of the State Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation. But as preparations gol under way last Friday at the South Roxana Dad's Club Park for another community picnic, authorities appeared to be no closer to a solution in the boy's strange disappearance and death. Tisdel said Friday that authorities are rechecklng old evidence in an effort to turn up a new clue. But the mystery of brown-eyed Paul Dean White remains. Missouri Boy Drowns In River ^.
