--The arrest of Dr. Cooper
, Frank Wills
and a man named Butcher, for body snatching, has created some excitement in Jackson Co., Va.
The body was that of a daughter of James Smith
The suspicious of one or two persons were excited on Sunday morning by the ragged appearance of the grave, and they determined to make a further examination.
The grave was opened, and the coffin found broken open and containing nothing but the burial clothes.
The neighborhood was alarmed and immediate search was made for the body, which was found Monday morning, in a sack under a ledge of rocks, covered with stones, and in a mutilated condition.
The parties who committed the deed were bailed to stand trial at court.
