Madisonville Democrat, (Monroe Co. TN) Wednesday, January 2, 1935:

“Young Man Killed---The body of Grover C. Dye, “Romeo,” was found on the L. & N. Railroad track near the depot here on Sunday morning, December 23, by Bob Mitchell, conductor of a freight train which passed through about that time. The body was badly mangled, being severed at the waist line and both hands severed just above the wrist.

The young man carried a notebook in his coat pocket, which contained a rough diary, giving the names of Grover C. Dye, “Romeo,” and Jimmie Stevens, “Broncho.” In this diary it contained the date of December 21, 1934, Morehead, Ky. Other data told of the two boys leaving Morehead for Montana, told when they landed in Corbin, Ky.

Both arms of the young man were tattooed, the right arm bearing the picture of a woman, and the left arm bearing the initials “G.D.” This led authorities to believe that he was Grover Dye. Upon investigation through policemen at Morehead, Ky., it was learned that the young man was from a family of Dye’s there. An ambulance was sent here for the body, and it was taken to the home near Morehead, Ky.

The body was held at the Kyker Funeral Parlor here during the investigation.”
