    Carl Scroggin Killed Saturday

    The murder of Carl F. Scroggin, 28, of 2004 Keys Avenue, Springfield, Illinois, whose body was found about 8 o'clock Saturday morning, March 11, in a cornfield near Twentieth Street and Watch Avenue, in the northeast part of Springfield, remained a mystery Saturday night. He was shot through the back near the left shoulder. At first it was believed that Mr. Scroggin had been shot while picking up coal along the railroad track. The bullet removed from the body, however, appeared to be a .25 caliber automatic bullet. It had a steel jacket and blunt nose. State's Attorney Alfred H. Greening, of Sangamon county, called in several railroad detectives Saturday night for questioning, but found that none of them used a pistol of such small caliber. Arthur Hall, Alton railroad special agent, said that none of his men were stationed in the locality of the shooting. The tracks near where Scroggin's body was found are used by the Baltimore & Ohio and Alton railroad and the Illinois Terminal System. Members of the family said that Mr. Scroggin left his home between 5:30 and 6 o'clock Saturday morning, saying that he was "going after a chunk of coal." Police said they found several chunks of coal laying along the tracks. Scroggin had been out of work all winter and there was no fuel in the house, the family stated. When Carl failed to return home in a reasonable length of time, his family became alarmed and began a search for him. The body was found in a cornfield about 200 feet from the railroad tracks by Charles Boyer. The inquest into the death of Carl F. Scroggin was held in Springfield at 10 o'clock by Coroner J. P. Knox. Arthur Jones, 1055 North Sixth Street, a guard at the Sangamon mine, told police Saturday night that he fired to frighten three men who

    boarded a car of coal which he was riding in the vicinity Saturday morning. He fired twice to frighten the men, he said, then stumbled and fell, firing a third shot as he fell. He said the three men ran away, two in one direction, and one in another. He said he did not know he had hit anyone, but decided to report to police when he read newspaper accounts of the finding of Scroggin's body in the vicinity.

    Carl F. Scroggin was a son of Mr. and Mrs. George Scroggin, who lived in Lake Fork vicinity, but several years ago moved to Springfield. During the past year, the parents came to Mount Pulaski and are living in the old Holden property on North Marion Street.

    To the old friends and relatives, George Scroggin is known as "Sant." Besides his parents, decedent is survived by his wife, Edna, a daughter, Clara, two brothers, Clell and George Scroggin Jr.; and four sisters, Miss Alberta Scroggin, Mrs. Gertrude McHenry, Mrs. Violet Bond, and Mrs. Eva McCurry. Funeral services were held at the Stuart Street Christian Church in Springfield at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, March 14, conducted by Rev. A. O. Hargis, and interment was made in Oak Ridge Cemetery.
