Plumley Death Probe Continues

What connection, if any, there was between the shotgun deaths of Jim T. Plumley, 62, and his nephew, James T. Young, 40, was being investigated Tuesday by officers here.

Plumley was found in his automobile Monday on a lane connecting the Manchaca and Oak Hill roads. The top of his head was blown off. In his hands was a shotgun. In his pockets, officers found $13.50 which comprised a fund he had been collecting from relatives and friends to help defray the expenses of Young’s funeral.

Peace Justice Beverly Allen Tuesday returned a verdict of suicide in Plumley’s death.

Young was shot to death early Sunday a few miles northwest of Austin on the Bull Creek Road.

Examining trials for Bruce Young, 21 and Ike Young, 35 was set for 4 p.m. today in Peace Justice T. E. Johnson’s court. Bruce Young is charged with the murder of his brother, James and Ike Young is charged with intent to murder Bruce in connection with Saturday night’s fracas.

Two years ago Buster Young, another brother was shot to death. His brother Ellis, was not indicted after pleading self defense.

Plumley is survived by his widow, Mrs. Mary E. Plumley, three sons and six daughters. Funeral services were to be conducted for him at 3 p.m. today by Rev. Allen.
