Elkader Register, 01 Apr. 1885.

On Friday last, Coroner Cain was summoned to Guttenberg to hold an inquest over the body of a man, which had been recovered from the river that day by E. Frey who had been out boat-riding. On the arrival of the coroner he called upon Henry Daacke, Louis Stoefler and W. Q. Adams, to act as jurors, and then viewed the body. An examination of the clothing disclosed money to the amount of $32.00, and some papers which indicated that the body was that of Fred Yougan, an old man, about 60 years of age, who disappeared on the 5th of December last. He was last seen in the afternoon of that day by John Kossuth, Sr., with whom he had been staying. About 7 o'clock in the evening Mr. Adolf Class heard some one in the direction of the river hallowing for help, and went down on the ice, but could see no one. The next morning he examined again, and found tracks which led to a hole in the ice, and it has been a mystery who was drowned there, but the finding of Mr. Yougan's body indicates that he was the unfortunate.

The jury rendered a verdict in accordance with the above facts.
