Biography* R. P. Culpepper Slain, Believed Robbery Victim
Body of Retired Restaurant Man Found Partly Immersed in Canal; $90 Missing.
Felled by Blow

     The body of Richard P. Culpepper, 69 tear-old retired restaurant owner of 819 Ohio Avenue (East St. Louis, IL), was found Saturday at 7:45 a.m. in the drainage canal alongside of Collinsville Road, a short distance north of the Ninth Street subway, and near the "Y" intersection of State Route 11 and Alternate 4. It was first seen by passengers of a Chicago-St. Louis bus and was reported by them to the sheriff's office. Culpepper had apparently been slain for the money he was known to have carried.
     The body, when found, was half-seated in the shallow water. He was fully dressed, but his hat was missing. His wallet contained a one-dollar-bill, and identification card, and several receipts.
     One of Culpepper's shoes was unlaced and loosened so it fell off when the body was dragged from the water. He had a habit of carrying surplus money in his shoes. When he left home Friday at 9 a.m. he had slightly less than $90 with him, the proceeds of a government pension check which he had cashed Thursday. Employees of the State Loan Co. in the Murphy Building said he was there Friday and had put the money in his show when he left.
     His body was taken to St. Mary's Hospital in a Kurrus ambulance, but there it was found that he had been dead for several hours. An autopsy performed Saturday morning by Dr. J. C. Soucy, deputy county coroner, revealed that death was caused by severe brain concussion. There were marks on Culpeppers forehead and around the left eye that appeared to have been made by a heavy blunt instrument.
     Culpepper was born in McLeansboro, Hamilton Co., Feb. 10, 1864. He had spent most of his life in East St. Louis. His wife died several years ago.
     He leaves five daughters, Mrs. John Monday, Aurora; Mrs. William Hargraves, Galatia; Mrs. John Jones, McLeansboro; and Mrs. John Leitsch and Mrs. Thomas Dillard, East St. Louis. He lived with Mr. and Mrs. Dillard.
     The body is at Niederfeld's and will be shipped to McLeansboro Monday. Burial will be there in Liberty Cemetery Tuesday at 2 p.m.1
