That John A. Ott, a merchant at Helena, Mo., came to his death by being crushed in an elevator in the Richardson Dry Goods company store was the verdict of a coroner's jury yesterday. No effort was made to place responsibility for the accident. The body was taken to Helena for burial.
[He was buried at Oak Grove Cemetery in DeKalb County, Missouri.]
