DEAD BODIES IN THE BUSH. To the Editor of the Town and Country Journal, [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

1 DEAD BODIES IN THE BUSH. ' To the Editor of the Toivn and Country Journal, Sir,-It is no unfroqucnt occurrence to hear of dead bodies on tho Paroo, most of whom there is no doubt dio from thirst; but there was one body found in December, 1868, whioh there is no doubt was robbed, but whether murdered for that purpose or found dead on the road is a mystery. I placed myself in communication with tho Bench of Magistrates at Bourke by letter, but did not even get an acknowledgment of its receipt. When I subsequently visited Bourke, I called at the court-house, but WOB informed by the C.P.S. that my letter was handed over to tho police with a view to an investigation! I then called on the senior-constable, andhepromwedthematter would be looked into. In about three months aftenvard I saw him, and found there were no stopts taken. I then wrote to the Inspector-General of Police, and got a reply. This isa copy "Police Department, "Inspector-General's Office, Sydney, "18th October, 18(19. "...
