News Item in the Tribune


WELCH, upon whom the Police Commissioner bestowed the Medal of Honor yesterday morning, was found dead today in his garage at 1502 Grand Ave. Death was apparently caused by carbon monoxide poisoning. The position in which the body was found just inside the garage door indicated, police said, that the victim realized his peril too late to save himself. As there are no known relatives, the funeral is being arranged by the Police Post of the American Legion, of which he was a member . . . . "
