    OH - James Silvers, 32, New Paris, 11 April 1979

    Excerpts from articles in the James Silvers case...

    Authorities have opened an investigation into a 1979 death originally reported as the suicide of a man whose body was found under the floor, wrapped in sheets and burned.

    Silvers' parents called police because he had been missing for a week. Ralph Silvers, his father, also told police he noticed a strong odor when visiting the house.

    Silvers was last seen April 10 by co-workers at Mosey Manufacturing Co. in Richmond, according to the articles.
    The body was found April 18. Police investigators talked with the widow in May. The day the body was discovered she was admitted to the Reller Five section for mental health at Reid Hospital, suffering severe trauma and shock.

    She admitted to keeping the body wrapped up. She placed it beneath the floor on April 17, according to the articles. The death was investigated as a questioned death, which meant it could have been an accident, suicide or homicide.

    The Preble County Coroner's office said the cause of death was a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the face.

    The death was ruled a suicide, but investigators and police involved would not indicate why, the articles said.
