The death of George
Swisher, age 35, Alias Glen Action, at the Utah Construction
company's ranch, where his body was found Wednesday, was the
result of suicide in the opinion of Coroner P.J. Grossman and
Deputy Sheriff Hamilton, who returned about 6 0'clock Friday
morning from the ranch.
The cause of the
suicide could not be definitely established, but the evidence
plainly indicated that the death wound was self-inflicted,
according to Mr. Grossman. Swisher is said to have been
despondent and had lived alone at the ranch house. He had
worked in the vicinity of San Jacinto, Nevada, and Rogerson
for about five years.
The body is at the
Grossman Parlors and funeral arrangements are awaiting the
receipt of word from a brother at Caldwell.
