Coroner's Inquest Shows Man To Be Son Of Prominent Buckeye Family The inquest over the body of the man found dead in the woods near Niles, at the end of Church street, Sunday, June 22, was reopened Tuesday afternoon at the Schaefer morgue. The body has been identified as that of John Finney, a former member of the Ridgemoor Golf club, whose home was in Portsmouth, Ohio. Finney is supposed to have ended his life with the revolver found by Chief of Police Shaffer near the spot where the body was lying in the woods. The first verdict given by the coroner's jury was that the unidentified man died of causes unknown to the jury. It has now developed that Finney was a member of a wealthy Ohio family and is said to have spent a fortune. He was addicted to intoxicants and it is thought that the belief that he was ruining his life caused him to commit suicide.
