In Years Past

July 28, 2014

In 1914, after an investigation at Sherman into the circumstances surrounding the death there of Andrew Radiak of Dunkirk, whose body was found on the Pennsylvania track, Coroner E.B. Osgood of Brocton and Undersheriff Gerry Colgrove of Mayville came to the conclusion that Radiak came to his death by being run over by a freight train. There were circumstances about the case which at first caused Osgood to suspect foul play. Nothing developed during the questioning of witnesses that in any way bore out the suspicion of foul play. The authorities were satisfied that Radiak lay down on the track in a drunken stupor and went to sleep with his neck resting on a rail. He was about 18 years old and had come to this country 11 months ago.
