BEAL, Simon J.

State Police today terminated an investigation into the death of Simon J. Beal, 73, Oldtown Road, who appeared to have been attacked before he was admitted Sunday at Sacred Heart Hospital for immediate surgery. Beal, a retired coal miner, died yesterday at 4:50 p.m. Dr. H. V. Deming, deputy county medical examiner, attributed the man's death to peritonitis due to a perforated intestine.

Baker reported there was no evidence of foul play although the man had a superficial cut over an eye. Beal went to the hospital Sunday to undergo a hernia operation.
