Washington Times 29 Nov 1903
At midnight Friday, an unknown white man, about forty years old, fell dead in the saloon of L. Van Riswick, 118 First Street northwest. The man had entered the bar just before it closed, and called for a drink of whisky. There was barely time to serve him before closing, and the man was in the act of drinking when he fell to the floor.
It was soon evident that he was dead, and the body was turned over to the morguemaster Schoneberger, who took it to the morgue, where it was viewed yesterday by several people, in an effort at identification, which so far has been unsuccessful. The Coroner found death due to heart disease.
