    • CALLED HARTLEY

      ACCORDING TO MY DAD, EARL GLEN CAUDLE SR., HARTLEY DROWNED WHILE
      ATTEMPTING TO SWIM THE MOUTH OF THE BLACK AND WHITE RIVERS ON A BET HE
      HAD MADE WITH HIS FRIENDS. AFTER HE WAS FOUND, UNCLE TOM PATRICK
      IDENTIFIED AND BURIED THE BODY. HIS BODY WAS HARD TO IDENTIFY BECAUSE
      FISH HAD EATEN IT AND IT HAD DECOMPOSED. AUNT RETHA, MYRTLE'S DAUGHTER,
      SAID HER MOTHER TOLD HER THAT SHE MET A MAN IN TULSA, OKLAHOMA THAT
      TALKED LIKE HE WAS HARTLEY TOWER.

      DAD ALSO SAID THAT THERE WAS SOME TALK AFTER HARTLEY'S DEATH THAT ONE
      OF THE GUYS WITH WHOM HE WAS SWIMMING AT THE TIME HE DROWNED MAY HAVE DONE
      SOMETHING TO CAUSE HIM TO DROWN.

      ON 21 DEC 1995 DOROTHY BLACK PIQUE SAID IN ANSWER TO A QUESTION I HAD
      ASKED ABOUT THE CORONER THAT TOM PATRICK, HER UNCLE, SAID THAT HARTLEY
      DROWNED AND WHEN THEY FOUND HIM ALL THEY NEEDED WAS A SHEET ON WHICH TO LAY
      HIS BONES. THERE WAS NO WAY ANYONE COULD IDENTIFY HIM.

      DOROTHY ALSO SAID THAT HARRIET PATRICK, HARTLEY'S GRANDMOTHER, SAID
      SHE KNEW IT WAS HIM BECAUSE SHE HAD FIXED HIS INJURED BIG TOE BEFORE HE
      DROWNED AND THAT SHE RECOGNIZED IT AFTER THEY FOUND WHAT WAS LEFT OF HIM.

      PEOPLE AT THE GREEN COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY SAID THERE PROBABLY
      WASN'T ANY CORONER'S REPORT BACK IN THOSE DAY THAT EVERYTHING WAS DONE
      INFORMALLY. DICK PACE, ONE OF THE MANAGERS AT HEATH FUNERAL HOME SAID
      THERE PROBABLY WASN'T ANY CORONER'S REPORT. HE WAS NOT AWARE OF ANY BACK
      IN THOSE DAYS.
