Alton Evening Telegraph, September 30, 1904

Deputy Coroner W. H. Bauer buried the unidentified burglar, killed Thursday morning in Yager Park by Nicholas Schwegel. Many people viewed the body in the city building, and some thought that he was a former Alton man, but no one appeared to identify the body positively. The body was buried in Milton cemetery this afternoon. Mr. Samuel Ryan of State street viewed the body of the dead man Friday afternoon, and said he was almost positive it is that of his half-brother, Frank Jiles [Giles?], who left here about a year ago. Mr. Ryan says the only point that causes doubt in his mind is the absence of teeth in the front of his mouth, but that his half-brother might have lost his teeth. Otherwise the dead man bears a remarkable resemblance to Jiles. Mr. Ryan will try to communicate with Jiles' wife.
