JOHN GRAHAM

Dumbartonshire


John Graham, 60, a Dumbartonshire jeweler, was found dead in his armchair the other morning, a blanket being wrapped around his head on which were several wounds. He lived alone. A number of watches were untouched in the shop but it is thought some valuable jewelry usually kept in a safe had disappeared. Investigations are proceeding.
