 Believed to Have Suffered
            Heart Attack
     The body of Melrose Youmans, 61, was found early today by a neighbor, H. Hedges, at his home on the island about three miles west of Parma.
     Hedges, who had not seen Youmans since last Monday, went to investigate.  He found the man dead.
     Sheriff Harold Meyer, who was called on the case, said that Youmans had apparently died of a heart attack Monday night.  He was found in bed.  Tuesday’s mail was still in the mail box.  The body was in bad condition Meyer said, the chickens had been without water and the horses had been without food for at least four days.
     Hedges lives approximately a quarter of a mile away.
     The deceased is survived by Rosa Bottenheimer, a nephew who works in Long Valley, and by a sister living in Canada.
     No funeral arrangements have been made.  H. G. Peckham, who is in charge of the body, said.
