Arthur Brice Bolen Murdered

The charred remains of Arthur Brice Bolen, aged 23 years, were shipped from St. Louis last Saturday to Yuma and conveyed from there to the home of his grandparents, P. H. Bolen and wife, where they remained until burial Sunday afternoon in the Boyd Cemetery near Farmville. Mr Bolen was lured to a padlocked road house five miles from St. Louis by gangsters Christmas Eve night and shot, after which the house was set on fire. About 5 o'clock his burned torso was removed from the ashes of the burned building. The young man's father, Luther Bolen, accompanied the remains from St. Louis to Yuma for burial. He had been making his home with his sister in Chicago and was en route to visit his mother who lived in Dallas, Texas. He is survived by his parents, a sister, and grandparents. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. T. M. Boyd of Bruceton.
