Bechtel, who was held awaiting the in
vestigation of the murder of his sis
ter, Mabel H. Bechtel, at their home a
few days ago, committed suicide la^t
evening in his cell in the ccntral po
lice station. The police consider this
act as a practical acknowledgment of
Bechtel's guilt. Bechtel was in cell NG.
on the right 'side of the corridor.
Several friends and relatives were ad
mitted to see him yesterday afternoon.
o'clock he crossed the corridor
to Alfred Eckstein, Miss Bechtel's af
fianced lover, who is also held pend
ing the coroner's inquest:
"Hello, All Are you there?"
"Yes," answered Eckstein. Bethtel
"I wish you were here with me n6w
that we might die together."
These were the last words heard
from Bechtel. A short time later Eck
stein .called Bechtel and got no an
swer, but he thought he heard an uri^
"8ua| gurgle. House Sergeant Frank
G. Roth had been through the cells
only a short time before. At a quarter
o'clock he entered the corridor
and called both men getting no an
swer from Bechtel he looked into his
cell and was appalled to see a stream
of blood running over the cell floor.
Bechtel had laid himself on the bench
in his cell and cut his throat with a
He was dead when found. The knife
lay near him on the floor. How he got
the knife is not known. He was care
fully searched when placed in the cell
and no weapon was found. There is a
rumor to the effect that a newsboy
passed the knife to him in the cell.
Bechtel was a single man and
years of age. He was a laborer, doing
odd jobs about town and in the coun
fy- He was a hard drinker, and when
intoxicated was easily angered and
prone to fight. He was of powerful
physique and possessed great courage.
During Mayor Schaadt's administrai
Bechtel was an
applicant for appointment to the police
force, but failed to get the position.
Later he was substitute and an extra
policeman at various times for regular
Intense excitement prevailed at policc
headquarters. Dense crowds pressed
against the windows and door and filled
the streets for half a block each way.
The suicide of Thomas Bechtel has
been followed by the police officials
telling a story of the murder of Miss
Bechtel as gathered by theiin. It starts
with last Thursday when Eckstein ac
companier Miss Bechtel to Philadel
phia. He left her there and returned
home. Wcisenberg met her in Philadel
phia and accompanied her to Allen
town, leaving there Sunday at
and reaching here four hours later.
Ihey went to a certain place together
where they remained until midnight.
Thos. Bechtel heard of this and being
strenuously opposed to Weisenberg, he
up braided her in her room upon her
return home. He struck her a powerful
bow on her cheek, causing her to fall
heavily against a bureau dead. Mem
bers of the family held a council and
decided upon the story made public on
Tuesday and upon the disposition of the
body and clothing as found.
Charles Bechtel's slaters' hatchet was
used in striking a blow on the head of
the dead girl to give the semblance of
an assault. This happened immediately
after midnight. The body Was con
cealed in th* home until Monday night,
whet it_. was placed "Hp 'the $rchViray,.
where it" was found Tuesday morning.
Eckstein knew nothing of the murder
the polict say.
Information charging* murder has
been lodged against the entire Bechtel
family artd constables were at the in
quest ready to serve warrants. Be-,
cause of this fact the attorney for the
Bechtels refused to permit any of his
clients to testify. After several wit
