A Tyntetown Mystery. Body Found in the River. On Sunday afternoon boys playing near the Cynon river at Tyntetown noticed a. paper parcel floating in the water. Getting it to bank, they opened it and found therein the body of an infant, packed in a quantity of lime. They informed the police, who removed the body to the Tynte Hotel, where Drs Mckay and Cornish, assistants to Dr R. W. Jones, J.P., examined it. The body was that of a female child.—An in- quest was held on Tuesday afternoon at the Tynte Hotel.—Daniel Bowen (13) said he and Fred Smith, another boy, were running down from the colliery towards the river bank when they saw a parcel in the water about mid-stream. It was packed in brown; paper. They brought it out of the water, and found it to contain the body of a child. -P.C. Evans said that about 12.30 he was called by the lad Bowen and found a brown paper parcel which had been opened. The paper was quite sodden, and the child's body was covered with lime. He took it at once to the Tynte Hotel. Dr Mackay and another medical man were passing at the time, and they examined it.—Dr C. Gordon Mackay said that he made a superficial examination of the body on Sunday. It was the body of a fully-developed child. It had apparently been dead a week, and was much decomposed. He subsequently made a post mortem examination. There were no signs of external violence and no fractures except the post mortem fracture. The result of his inquiries proved that the child was still-born.—The jury returned a verdict of Still-born and found in the river."
