Paul Pierre on Trial for Murder
Tells Ghastly Tale in
t Court
Special to The HeraldRepublIcan
St Anthony Idaho Dec eThat there
was conspiracy carefully schemed and
plotted out with a coldbloodedness that
fairly startles authorities in this stat
in the murder of G istav Pierre the
lioineaeeker of Mud Lake is i about to be
feinted I out by County Attorney McCon
neil in the trial which is i now on ana
vthLh threatens to implicate every mrm
Dcr of th Pierre family and even the
swoftheart of one of the Pierre boys
Hardly has a murder tril attracted
such vklc altrnlii in tnis county Ha
tes are overcrowded with ranchmen w
have been eagerly pressing thir way
into the little court housr ind + legal
minds r ol the state have onic to hi
Aiithfiny to watrh carefully the iivelop
siints in the murder trial
Paul Pierre who has already ru
t > sd that lu1 shot his father though
t that he did it in protection ot
his mother and other insrnbfTH of the
1ieriv family whom he says his I + lather
Ki threatened to kill has weakened ui
iayint I much nervousness
Thp story of the crime which he at
firr told with an unflinching straight
forwirdness now wavers It is the hope
lot county attorney to br aK him into
i eonfession that he was the agent of
i > in > inod family in killing his father
that they might gain possession o
Li i < little I lortune of JouOO go to the cities
nl 1 Miuandfi I + it and see life of the kind
o wiiich they have admittedly bee de
Tii 1 minder took place on the Pierre
laiuh during the forenoon of July ii
1iiiv I according to the confession of hit
hm Paul hal been abusing a dog in
runt I of the horn when the latter
sizpd a Winchester rifle and shot him
The first bullet failed to take effect and
after being hurled to the ground he rose
and questioningly stared at iiis son
Parricide Confesses
° My father was very profane said
Paul Pierre when he made his confes
sion I didnt want to ace him die with
an oath on his lips and so I quickly sent
another bullet into his body right over
his heart and he fell dead
And what followed has convinced the
authorities that the murder of Gustave
Pierre was the result of a conspiracy All
member of the Pierre family and Ele
thia Trapp who was soon to be the bride
of Edward Pierre came out to view the
body when Paul had announced that the
old man was dead and with alleged
satisfaction at the dispatch of the deed
wrapped it in a blanket Then it is said
almost with a mockery the wife of the
dead man his two sons and prospective
daughterInlaw made preparations for fu
neral service
Paul Pierre stated in his confession
that lumber is scarce about Mud Lake
and that he had to rip boards out of the
barn of the ranch in order to construct
a coffin When this rude structure had
been made the two sons placed Gustave
Pierre in the crude casket Then a shal
low grave was dug and the family wait
ed until nightfall for the burial
But expected darkness did not come
Instead a bright moon lit the plains with
a light like day The burial was delayed
For hours in hope that a cloud migl
shadow the moon Put this did not coma
and impatient the two sons carried the
body l to the newly opened grave The
asket was lowered and the family knelt
In prayers as Paul Pierre who had kill
his father tossed earth over the casket
and attempted to say a committal service
Under the bright moon the family re
mained in prayer until the mother closed
this unusual funeral service with an ap
peal that her youngest son might be for
given for the deed
Neighbors Become Suspicious
Confusion arose when neighbors began
to inquire into the whereabouts of Gus
tave Pierre known to have been a man
of considerable means Paul Pierre ex
plained that his father had gone back to
the old home in Belgium to look after cer
tain affairs that had developed in the
death of a relative Then Mrs Pierre said
her husband had gone to Washington to
seek work In the coal fields with later
Intentions to prospect for gold in Califor
nia The other son had a different story
to tell and the prospective bride main
tained that the aged homeseeker had dis
appeared unbeknown to members of the
Investigation of the disappearance of
the aged Gust w Pierre by Constable
Sheeley of Market Lake threw suspicion
on Paul Pierre He placed him under ar
rest and obtained a confession Then he
removed him to St Anthony where the
story of the unusual crime led to the ar
rest of all members of the Pierre fam
ily and Alethia Trapp They had left the
ranch where the murder had been com
committed and were discovered at night
by Idaho Falls officers In a secluded
mountainous section of the county The
two women were sleeping in the body of
a wagon while Edward Pierre was
wrapped in a blanket underneath the
In his confession Paul Pierre insisted
that his father had labored under hallu
cinations that his wife was not true to
him and that his children were trying to
rob him of his wealth and homestead H
Id that during the mornlig before the
murder Gustave Pierre had displayed ter
rible signs of temper and had made an
oath that he would kill his wife and two
tons and his 1 cattle and horses and burn
the buildings on the ranch and then
take his own life
On the following morning stated
Paul Pierre My father terribly abused
mother and when I saw him kick and
curse at the dog I feared that he won
carry out his threat of the day before
Without a moments hesitation I seiaed
my rifle and shot him Father was fac
Ing me But I hardly believe that he saw
me until I had sent the first bullet into
his body
The fact that Gustave Pierre was insane
and dangerous to his household comprises
t1t chief argument of Attorney Holden
of Idaho Falls who represents the defense
ense But the vigorous stand taken ly
the prosecuting attorney and his repeated
presentation of facts inclining toward
conspiracy and that there lad been pre
ious attempts to put the head of the
family out of the way tends to dislodge
the arguments of the defense
The Pierre came to America from Bel
gium and for several years lived at
Itreator Ill where the two tOys were
born Gu tave Pierre took his family to
Idaho a year ago locating on a home
