TEXARKANA -- The mystery surrounding the finding of the decapitated body of a woman on the Bassett farm, near here, yesterday afternoon, has not been cleared up, but authorities say there are several reasons for believing that the victim was June Cox, who has not been seen here since May 20, when she was driven to some point in a taxicab by a negro chauffeur. The negro has been arrested, but says he knows nothing about the affair.
