A father strangled and bludgeoned his 15-year-old daughter while excessively drunk, drank a pint of whiskey next to her body, tried to hang himself, then turned himself in to police requesting to be executed in the electric chair.
Also accompanying the article is a short segment about a woman who had tried to commit suicide by poisoning but failed. She tried again, this time with a gun, and was unfortunately successful.
A third article reports aeronautical engineer and Prohibition-era airborne bootlegger Benny Howard’s crash which cost him his leg. Though not reported in this article, Howard’s wife’s (Maxine “Mike” Howard) legs were injured as well.
