TME ROCK'' ISLAND ARGUS
AY. JUNE 20. 1908
INQUEST IS HELD
Coroner's Jury Finds Facts of
: rMrs. AshbauQh's Doath to-
' . bs as Published.
SUICIDE IS THE VERDICT
Relatives Decline to Assume Charge of
Remains, and County May. Prq-
vide for Burial.
Coroner L. V. Eckhart last evening
conducted an iuuucst over the renijjlna
.jf Mrs. Ashbaugh, who committed sui
cide yesterday afternoon. The inquest
was hp.ld at the Wheelan undertaking
rooms. The evidence presented to the
jury brought out the facts as related
in yesterday'sArgus, and the jury re
turned a verdict that death was due to
carbolic acid, taken with suicidal in
dent. No other motive for the deed is
apparent, except that, indicated by the
fact that John Kruze, in whose rooms
rhe lived, and where she died, told the
woman yesterday that she should pack
up her things and get out. The wo
man's life had been a rather turbulent
one, it seems.
