COUCH, M.Q. - {from The Siloam Springs Daily} The body of M.Q. Couch, who owned and lived on Camp Solitude, across the river below the Fisher Ford bridge, was taken from the big hole in the river at the bluff on the farm shortly after day break today, {Monday, June 20}. A rock was attached to a wire, the other end of which was around the neck of the dead man. The body was recovered in the middle of the river in eight or ten feet of water. Mr. Couch, who came here originally from Oklahoma, lost his wife over a year ago, she having died in the City Hospital following an operation. He bought Camp Solitude from Ed C. McCulloch about a year ago and moved there. Six weeks or two months ago he married Mrs. Richardson who lived south of the F.A. Clapp residence, and she went to live with him on the farm. Coroner J.A. Petty held an inquest this afternoon with the resultant verdict that Mr. Couch came to his death at his own hand by drowning.
