Suicide at Sun City

A young man by the name of Fred Hennings was found dead from a revolver shot this morning at about 9:00 o'clock at Sun City. It appeared that it was a case of suicide. However, Dr. B. H. Jordon, coroner, was called, and his report is not in at the time of going to press. The Hennings family moved to the Sun City neighborhood about a year ago. No definite cause for the suicide is known at present, but young Hennings is said to have been in Class 1 in the draft, and it is supposed this preyed upon his mind and caused the rash act.
