Wooster Ave. Ext. (Adam Schneider farm), whose body was uncovered at 6:30 last night in a shallow grave inside a barn on the adjoining Streb farm. Tuscarawas County Coroner Philip Doughten said death was caused by blows to the head from a blunt instrument. He added that the autopsy showed “a large quantity of alcohol in his system.” Swonger’s body was discovered IO hours after his blood-spattered pickup truck was found in the barn on a tip from a neighbor boy. The Streb farm is on the west side of Route 21, south Battered Body Of M.E. Swonger Found In Shallowed Earth of the Parral corporation. The grave was located against the wall in the southwest corner of the apparently unused barn. It was about 2 feet deep. Police said the grave was covered wuth approximately 35 steel irrigation pipes that had been stored there. The truck had been parked upstairs and the body apparently was either dropped down a hay chute or dragged outside and then down to the grave site. , Officers this morning talked with James Crago but he could volunteer no information. Chief Groh said at noon that the murder weapon has not been located and “we have no suspects.” On the scene were 5 or 6 Dover officers, Juvenile Officer Harry Fisher and other unidentified persons. Police were mum, in many respects, in regard to the investigation of the apparent murder, the first in Dover for several years. A search for Swonger began late Saturday night after his father-in-law, Earl Steiner of RD I, Bolivar, notified .sheriff deputies that he had been missing since Friday night. Steiner said Swonger dropped off his wife, Nancy, at his farm Friday and was to have picked her up again later that night. | A neighbor boy told Mrs. Swonger their truck was parked inside the Streb barn and she notified authorities. Police impounded the truck and have the Streb property under guard and “off limits” to all while they comb the area for clues to the death. Chief Garrison Groh this morning, about 14 hours after the body was found, told reporters only that death was “other than natural’’ and no other details were available. I “You know as much about it as we do,” he stated. Occupants of the Streb farm are C. M., .James, Donald and Eva Crago, but they could not See POLICE SEEK. Page 2 ;
