John Nihil Not Killed in Fight
Reprots that John Nihil, San Francisco laborer found dead at the Anderson Canyon camp on the coast highway Jan.7, was killed in a fight were discredited today by Sheriff Carl Abbott who returned last night from the camp. Abbott and J.A. Corbett, coroner, went to the camp yesterday to complete investigation of the case at that end. They said there had been a fight at the camp but previous to Nihil’s death but that the dead man was not in it. It is almost positive, Abbott said today, that Nihil’s death was caused by poison liquor. Trace4s of wood alcohol and fuel oil were found in his stomach. Nihil is said to have purchased liquor from three men who appeared at the camp the day before he died and said they were from San Jose. According to the sheriff, several clues to their identity have been obtained and an arrest is expected in a few days.
