Strangled to Death.
An inquest was held at Manasquan on the body of Felix V. Soudoup, who was found dead in the Allenwood woods. The jury found that he was strangled to death by some unknown persons.

He had spent, according to the witnesses called, only 35 cents, and only one cent was found on his person when his body was discovered. Drs. J. B. Wainright and A. S. Higgins made the autopsy and testified that death was due to asphyxia.
