THE DAYTON HERALD, MONDAY, MARCH 30, 1885

CRUSHED TO DEATH

LOUIS M. PIKE INSTANTLY KILLED ON THE D. & M. RAILROAD

The mangled remains of a young man not over twenty years old, were found lying near the First Street railroad crossing on the Dayton & Michigan track by William Shay and Patrick Lyons about 11 o'clock, Saturday night. The head, all cut and crushed, was nearly severed from the body. The coroner was summoned and the remains taken to Meaars, Berk & Fry by the patrol force. Upon an examination being held it wa supposed by the coroner that the young man had been killed instantly. By a book found in one of his pockets it was learned that his name was Louis M. Pike. He was identified by several persons who stated that he lived at 134 East Monument avenue with a widowed mother. It is thought that he was killed at 10 o'clock a short time before his ghastly remains were found by Shay and Lyon. He, in company with a man who appeared to be much older than himself was seen hear the crossing, just before the special, No. 44, which leaves the city at the time amed above, on the D & M. railroad, passed the point where he was found. It is supposed that he attempted to jump upon one of the cars of this train and was thrown upon the track and mangled in horrible manner mentioned before. The deceased was very boyish in appearance, and was small for his age. He has been attending the meetings of the Salvation Army for the past three
weeks, and a few days ago informed Captain Emma Lewis, that he wished to become a member of the organization. Last evening Miss Lewis called upon the army to join her in attending the funeral of the young man held this afternoon.

Louis McPike was adopted by Simon McPike.
