Readers are advised that contemporary newspaper reports, particularly those prior to 1920, sometimes contain explicit descriptions of the injuries sustained by the deceased person. Some readers may find these descriptions offensive and in bad taste by today's standards. However, they reflect the norms of the times and are reproduced as found.
