Muliltated Body of Young Man Found.
Mutilated almost beyond recognitin, the head crushed, arms and legs almost severed and otherwise badly mangled, the body of John A. Brookks of Fairfax was found lying near the Western of Alabama Railway track, at Huguley's Crossing between Cusseta and West Point, yesterday morning. The discovery was made by a Negro man passing long the track and he reported it to the authorities at Lanett.
Mr. Brooks was a son of Mr. T. J. Brooks, of Milltown; he was 25 years of age and unmarried. As to how he met his death remains a mystery. It is reported that he passed through LaFayette Monday evening en route for Abanda to his home in Fairfax, and the supposition is that he was either killed by a train or while attempting to alight from a train. The Remains were carried to Mount Hickory yeasterday afternon, where interment was made.
