Suicide in Gilmanton

Back to Benton County MN Newspaper Articles

FREDERICK HUSTON, an old gentleman living in the town of Gilmanton, committed suicide by cutting his throat with a butcher knife. The old gentleman about two yers ago lost his wife, and the depression caused by that event, combined with bodily infirmities, soon reduced him to the condition of a hopeless hypochondraic. His daughter-in-law discovered him and gave the alarm after the cutting, but Dr. Dimier, who was called in, couldn't save him. - Sauk Rapids Sentinel.
