Titanic Victims Starved

Orange County Times-Press

That several Titanic victims probably starved to death in lifeboats seemed probable when the White Star Liner Oceanic docked today.

The Oceanic picked up, last Monday, a lifeboat containing three bodies terribly decomposed.

Each victim had pieces of cork in his mouth indicating that they had tried to keep themselves from starving.

One was identified as Thomson Beattie, a passenger.  All three were buried at sea.
