Haines Sadie - This morning as some boys were rowing on the Elkhart River just east of Ligonier they discovered the lifeless remains of a young woman. They called assistance and when the body was taken out it was found to be Miss Sadie Haines, a beautiful young girl, the daughter of Simon Haines who left this place about a year ago after some trouble with his wife. About 3 years ago she suddenly disappeared. Six months later she was discovered in Chicago where she had been abandoned by a well-known traveling man. Her brother is now an inmate of the poor home at Albion. Last summer, 3 days after marriage he took a big dose of Paris Green and was only saved by hard work. The effects of the drug made him a helpless imbecile and a public charge as his mother refused to do anything for him. The mother claims that the suicide left home last Wednesday evening after a quarrel, but the condition of the body shows pretty conclusively that the body had not been in the water more than 12 hours. Where she was during the time since Wednesday is a mystery. ^ 3-10-1891
