Miss Kirk Simpson, winter resident of Flagler Beach for a number of years, was found dead in a room at the Hamilton hotel in Daytona Beach Tuesday. She had gone to the hotel only a few days previously.

According to information from Daytona Beach, a whimpering dog in a closed car in front of the hotel caused hotel employees to force open the door of the room. They found Miss Simpson dead in her bed.

Miss Simpson, whose home was in Radford, Va., and where she spent the summer, was retired from a librarian post in Washington.

The dead woman has a brother living at Radford, Va., and who has been notified of his sister’s death. The body is being held by Baggett, Wetherby and McIntosh funeral home in Daytona Beach.
