    Spiritualist Leads Friends to Corpse of Drowned Man
    (By United Press)
    Milwaukee, Wis., July 2 -- Henry Gepfert, whose body was found in a pool of water at the Jueger Sand and Gravel company pit here, died from drowning, a post mortem examination performed by Dr. E. L. Tharinger showed this afternoon.
    A severe bruise on the head seemingly inflicted by a blunt instrument and other indications of a skull fracture, had let police to believe Gepfert was murdered.
    Gepfert's body was found after Henry Jaeger, president of the company, and his brother-in-law, had called in A. P. Roberts, Milwaukee spiritualist medium, when all other sources of information failed to reveal Gepfert's whereabouts.
    Roberts, Jaeger said, told Jaeger that Gepfert's body was in the water, and could be found at 11 o'clock. When that time came, and Jaeger still could not find the body, he again called Roberts, who went to the scene with him, and pointing to a section of the pit where a hidden spring had been uncovered several weeks ago, said "the body is in there.".
    Dr. Tharinger stated that his investigation showed that bruises on Gepfert's head were superficial and that the skull had not been fractured.
    Following the autopsy, Coronor Henry Grundeman reported his findings on the case as probable accidental drowning.
