Mr. Tom Pritchett Found Dead Near Home Saturday

Coroner Willie Lee Smith was called and after impending a jury, a verdict was rendered that Mr. Pritchett came to his death from a heart attack. No. bruises were found, and since he had been suffering from a heart ailment, this seemed the only plausible reason for his death.
