Body Placed on Railroad; Is Believed to Be Result of Stomp Dance

Maud, Okla., Aug 13 -(Special)-

With a bullet wound in the head, and lifeless, the body of
Tony Tiger, a Seminole indian living near Maud, was found
early Wednesday morning on the Missouri, Kansas & Texas
railroad tracks about three miles south of Maud. It was
evident that the Indian had been killed and his body placed
on the track in an effort to avoid detection of the crime.
The body was found a short time before a passenger train
was due to pass the place.

The sheriff and other officers from Seminole are working on
the case believing that the killing was the result of
trouble at a stomp dance at Hazel in the southern part of
Seminole county, which has just closed. The Indians during
the dance had liquor, many of them, it is asserted were
drunk, and it is believed Tiger had trouble which later
resulted in his death.

No arrests have been made. Whether officers have clues
which will lead to the apprehension of the party or parties
who made away with Tiger is not known.
