Man, Found Dead

In Cabin, Identified

    Unable to reach by land the cabin in which a man was found dead yesterday, coroner’s deputies today were taken to the cabin, on the shore of Smith Cove, by  a Seattle Harbor Patrol boat.

   The dead man, whose body was taken to the county morgue about 11:30 o’clock this forenoon, was identified as Dora Brunson, 70 years old, who lived in the  cabin at 2624 Oakes St. in  Seattle, Washington. 

   Brunson died of natural causes according to Coroner  John P. Brill Jr..------------------------------------------

Theodore Brunson was the first child born to David J. & Lydia Rigby Brunson of Jay CO, IN.  

The reason they were taken to the cabin by Seattle Harbor Patrolboat is that there had been a blizzard the week before and several inches of rain causing the snow to melt and flood streets and low lying area near the coast where  Smith Cove was located.
