See the attached photo of a newspaper article that recounts the murder trial of J. B. Anderson who supposedly murdered David Johnson a 50 year old (rough age) resident of Spokane, WA who owned an 80 acres farm in Spokane. Anderson then transported his body to Athol, ID where he placed it in a cabin and burned it beyond recognition. David Johns was identified by his son Ted solely from his belt buckle found among the remains with the initial "D" on it. David had bought the same one for his son Ted with the initial "T" on it. Anderson was later caught after empting Johnson's bank account and trying to sale his farm. There were other items like guns in some reports that were pawned.
