    • Newspaper Article - Thursday, July 1, 1948 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Richland - The community was shocked last week to hear of the mysterious disappearance of Ora Waite. Nothing has been heard from him since last week Sunday morning.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, July 29, 1948 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Body of Orrie Waite, Missing Month, Found The body of Orrie Waite, 49, missing from his home in Richland since June 20, was found about 1,000 feet from his home by two small boys scouting with their "B-B" guns, last Thursday afternoon shortly after 1 p.m. The badly decomposed body was found in a thicket of evergreens and underbrush, with a .22 caliber rifle between his extended anus. Death was caused by a bullet wound through the brain, according to Dr. Harvey S. Albertson, Oswego, who performed the autopsy. Funeral services were conducted in the cemetery Sunday at 2 p.m. by Rev. Robert Rowsam of the Methodist church in Richland and burial made in the Richland cemetery. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Etta Card Waite; five sons, Wallace, Willis and Arnold Waite, all of Richland; Gordon Waite, stationed with the United States Army in Texas and Gerald Waite, United States Navy, Norfolk, Virginia; three daughters, Beatrice, Beulah and Beverly Waite, Belleville. Mr. Waite was born October 8, 1899 in the town of Worth, Jefferson county, the son of Henry and Martha Sloper Waite. He was employed by the Curtiss company in Richland. The discovery of Waite's body brought to a close a search by Fireman, Boy Scouts, law enforcement and volunteers over a wide spread area from his home about Richland. Ponds, wells, cisterns and swampy areas had been dragged as well as an aerial search by the sheriffs department. Following Mr. Waite's disappearance, District Attorney James M. Feeney, together with Oswego sheriffs deputies, State Police and BC1, held a hearing at which Mrs. Waite, Raymond Brewer, 50, a frequent visitor at the Waite home, and neighbors, were questioned. No direct evidence was developed as to the whereabouts of Mr. Waite, but Raymond Brewer was arrested on a charge of adultery on admissions said to have been made during the examination of witnesses. He was arraigned before Justice of the Peace D. W. Howard, waived examination and is being held in the Oswego county Jail for the Grand Jury. Whereas no inquest has been held as yet, District Attorney Feeney stated that the investigation is being conducted and he may schedule an inquest later. Evidence will be presented to the Grand Jury in October, he said, and a verdict rendered when the investigation is closed.
