Fox killed his thiee children, ages six and four years ai d sixteen months, then committed suicide. \ ' Fox, according to a letter he had written, but never mailed, to Sheriff Williams, March 26, 1911, planned to killed two children and himself, to bo freed from taunts and threats of enemies. What prompted him to change his mind at that time is puz zlbjg the officers. In the letter found near Fox's body Fox spoke of but two children, but just before he snuffed out three inno cent lives and his own he scratched ou; the word "two” and inserted "three.” The third child was born three months after the writing of the letter.
