A Suicide
Last Sunday the remains of an unknown German were found in Gregg's woods, in the town of Brookfield, by John Pipher. By the side of the body was a four-barraled revolver, only one which was loaded, while three bullet holes in the neck of the corpse told only too plainly of the work of the others.

As soon as discovered steps were taken for holding an inquest and in due time Justice Geo. Brown had a jury impanelled, and an examination of the body together with a satchel which deceased has left at Ramstack's saloon several days before, was made. In the satchel were papers which revealed the fact that the man had friends at Indianapolis. The body was buried in the Brookfield cemetery.

It was thought that death must have taken place fully a week prior to the
finding of the body.
