Where's My Suit?

This item appeared in the Dallas Morning News of Feb. 23, 1938:
Corpse Dolls Up in His Sunday Best
BARRE, Vt., Feb. 22 (AP).—Victor Olson was back home Tuesday with his wife and children—wondering who will replace his new suit.

Last October, a headless body was found in the East Barre flood dam. Investigators concluded it was Olson's and his family agreed. The body was buried after services Oct. 12—in Olson's best suit.

Later Olson was located working in a lumber camp in Bethel, Maine. No one has been able to identify the headless body.
