Alex Rical and his wife, Valencia Rical,
members of the foreign settlement at Llansaik, were arrested this morning by
Constable George W. Douglass, charged with the surreptitious and improper
burial of a stillborn child in the Dunlo cemetery about four weeks ago. The couple were brought before Squire M. W.
Jackson of this place and admitted their guilt.
It will be remembered that the body was found
enveloped in a half buried shoe box by some ladies who were visiting the
cemetery. As no clue could be discovered as to the identity of the perpetrators
of the act, the body was later buried properly at the county’s expense. While passing the cemetery early this
morning, Supt. Richard Pardoe of the Mountain Coal Company noticed a man and
woman apparently attempting to bury something. Becoming a little suspicious he
entered the graveyard and discovered them intent upon burying the old shoe box
which had been left lying by the grave of the mysterious child. Mr. Pardoe immediately reported the matter to
the local authorities and the arrest followed.
The couple explained to the Justice that they were too poor to pay
funeral expenses and didn’t know of the Board of Health requirement of a burial
