Dover, Del.. May . The body of lit
tle Horace Marvin Jr.. was found today
upon hla father's farm under .circum
stances which lead his father. and all
who have followed the developments of
the case, to declare that the baby boy
must . have been murdered within two
weeks by ' the persons -who stole him
from the strawstack in the farm yard
two months ago. . No medical, examin
ation has ret been made of the child's
body, but the. place where the body was
discovered and the conditions surround-
Ilng the discovery are - such as to glvo
the . strongest posaible evidence that
the child - could not- have accidentally
met his death 61 days ago In the place
Where he was found. ;
Throughout the countryside tonight
tne one opinion is neara, mac is mac
the . kidnapers of the boy became
frightened at the developments of the
last two weeks and that the boy was
killed and brought back, to the farm
so that his body might be -found and
suspicion be diverted from his captors.
i y, . i JrenaA By Xn&ter. ' ' .'
The body was discovered by Oliver
Pleasanton, a young farmer who .was
out bunting. Ths child's body was
lying in five inches of water which had
accumulated over night, owing to the
heavy rains. For several weeks, before
the . last heavy rainstorm, ' there had
not been . one inch of water at this
spot, and during the two weeks of hot'
weather in .-the latter part of March
there bad been no water at this partic
ular spot and ths grass had all been
burned over... Sticking out of the low
water today were the burned tops of
the grass, yet ths boy's body . when
found showed that no fire had reached
it at any time. Detectives had tramped
time and again . over 1 tha exact spot -
where tha body of little Horace was
found. Only yesterday old Mr. Marvin
had been working within a few feet of
the spot and there was not one inch of
water there at . the time to have con
cealed the body. i
The Uttla. pool formed over night Is
almost . three quarters of a mile from
tne straws. acx wnera cne Doy waa iasc

The condition- of the boy's body .
points above all to ;the abaolute con
clusion that he had not been dead more
than two weeks. - The body is. In an ex
