Foul Play Ruled Out As Cause in Transient's River Death

A man found floating in the Feather River last Friday morning apparently died of natural causes said a Yuba County Sheriff Coroner's Office Deputy. Jack Dempsey McKelroy, 60, a transient pronounced dead about 11:30 a.m. Friday was found to have water in his lungs during a subsequent autopsy, said Sgt. Jack Reed, who said deputies have ruled out foul play in the death.

Redd said McKelroy may have drowned or died of heart problems, of which he had a history. Redd said deputies initially were concerned about a laceration found on McKelroy's face but found it superficial upon examination. McKelroy, who reportedly was last seen alive about 9:30 a.m. Friday, was said to be intoxicated at that time, said Redd. Services are pending at Hutchison & Carnes Colonial Chapel.

Appeal Democrat June 17, 1970 pg. 4


The body of Wheatland grocer Lloyd Clarence Nightingale, 63, was found hanging from a railing in a meat locker in his store about 6:30 p.m. Yesterday, according to the Yuba County Sheriff-Coroner's Office. The sheriff's office said he took his own life.

Nightingale left no note or other explanation of his act, however, deputies reported. His wife, Ruth, went to the store when he did not return home for supper. Unable to get into the locked store at 322 Main St., she went next door and got barber James Sullivan and Otto Parisal, one of Nightingale's employee to assist her. They broke into the store and found Nightingale's body, according to a coroner's report. In addition to his wife, Nightingale is survived by a brother, Clyde, of Wheatland and two sisters, Marjorie Jones of Wheatland and Loretta Petty of Morgan Hill.

Funeral arrangements are pending at Lipp & Sullivan Chapel. Nightingale was the son of Tom and Frances Nightingale, who bought the former Bilby's Market after moving to Wheatland in 1917. He was the original member from Wheatland on the Sutter-Yuba Mosquito Abatement District board of directors.
