"Blanta Gregoria, known among his friends as 'Macaroni Joe', and who lived along in a cabin near Murphy-Silver state road for a number of years, was found dead Monday afternoon a few hundred years west of Pedracini Ranch on Sinker Creek by Barnard Metche. Mr. Metche is a camp-tender for Peter Strom and accidentally found the body while out hunting horses.
"It was reported about three weeks ago that Gergoria was not at his cabin nor wood camp. Having no relatives nor close friends, but little search was made for him and no official action was taken in the matter until Alva Read of Oreana came here Saturday to pay $5,400 he owed him. Monday, Sheriff Rock searched the country around his cabin and had returned to town when Mr. Metche brought in word of having found the body a short distance from where he had been chopping wood above the tunnel.
"The deceased has been subject to convulsions in a light form since having been poisoned by strychnine several years ago, and it is thought that death overtook him while in one of those spells.
"...The condition of the body would indicate that death had occured at least three weeks ago or about the time he was first missing...The remains were brought to this city and interred in the plot of ground outside the K. P. Cemetery Tuesday afternoon". [Owyhee Avalanche, 15 Sept 1916]
