RR YMCA Chef; [Foul Play Hint In Drowning Of Schenectady Man - Body of Edward Fonda, 26, Shows Deep Cut in Head When Found - Missing About Month - Employer Does Not Believe Restaurant Chef Ended His Own Life - Seneca Falls Dec. 24 - Edward Fonda, aged 26 years, whose home is believed to be in Schenectady, was found drowned in the canal above Ovid st. at noon yesterday. He had been in the water at least a month. Authorities have not finally concluded just how he came to his death. Fonda was a chef of considerable ability and was employed by Mrs. Fitzsimons at the Grill in State st. when he disappeared. Mrs. Fitsimmns and employees of the Grill do not believe he intended suicide the night previous to his disappearance. Fonda came here about the first of November from Syracuse in answer to an inquiry Mrs. Fitzsimons made of the Wickes Employment Agency in Syracuse for a chef. (..) At noon yesterday barge canal workmen saw a bundle of clothing on a sandy bar in the center of the level opposite the button factory. (..) Dr. James E. Medden and Dr. Adolph Letellier preformed an autopsy yesterday afternoon. They found that death was directly due to drowning. The deep cut on the head might have been inflicted just prior to death, from its appearance. The body was removed to the vault in Restvale Cemetery and Coroner Follett began a search for the young man's relatives.
