The body of John Worley, Decatur resident shot to death early today in Etowah, Tenn., will arrive here tonight and funeral services probably will be held Sunday.

Mr. Worley, a sign painter, left here about Christmas and had been working at various cities in the South, as was his custom. This morning Chief of Police Riggsbee received a long distance telephone call from officials in the Tennessee city, advising him of Worley's death from pistol wounds, identification having been made by means of letters in his pockets.

Because of poor wire connections, however, officials were unable to learn the details of the shooting, except that the slayer was reported in custody. Members of the family here at once endeavored to get back in touch with Etowah authorities and were promised that a full investigation of the local man's death would be made today.

Mr. Worley is survived by his wife and daughter, Doris, who reside in Sheffield; his father, R. L. Worley of Decatur; three brothers, Floyd Worley, of Patterson, N.J.; Clarence and Lee Worley, of Decatur.
