The body of Fred CALL, 57, was found by a city employee early Tuesday morning on a street near the Wabash River in Clinton. Condition of the body plus the fact that Call's billfold and spectacles were missing led authorities to believe he had been murdered. Officials sought to trace Call's movements during the earlier part of the night. They had determined that he had won a tavern pool early in the evening and was thought to have been carrying only about $55. Clinton officials, Vermillion County officers and State Troopers were working together to piece together the complete picture of the apparent crime. The accompanying photo, supplied for our use through the courtesy of The Daily Clintonian was taken shortly after Call's body was discovered. A former coal miner, Call was a native of Parke County and was born near Mecca. Richard Lee Goodwin, 24, New Goshen and a student at Indiana State Teachers College was reported at noon Wednesday to be held in jail at Newport in connection with the beating of Call.
