In the matter of the inquisition into
the cause of the death of Richard:
Haynes, deceased Verdict "of Cor-'
oner's Jury. j
We, the undersigned, having been '
duly summoned and sworn by J. C. I
Jones, a coroner,, of Yuma county, j
State of Arizona to act as jurors ia
the matter of the inquisition into the
cause of the death of Richard Haynes,
having viewed the remains and having
heard and considered all the evidence
presented, and being duly informed in
premises upon our oaths do say that
from the evidence before use we find
the facts to be as follows:
That the name of the deceased was
Richard Haynes, that he was of the
age of. about 70 years, at the time of
his death, in (or near) the town of
Yuma, County of Yuma, State of Ari
zona, at about the hour of 12:30
o'clock p. m., on the 9th day of June
1915; that his death was occasioned
as the result of a gunshot wound in-
m 111 HAMS
flicted ononis left leg by a rifle in the
hands of one John Willis; but we do
not attach any criminal responsibility
to the act of John Willis as we deem
he was justified in the shooting; that
the deceased was an old soldier and
had served as a private in Co. E of
the 123d Ohio Volunteer infantry, and
was formerly a member of the sol
dier's home, at Sawtelle, California;
that the deceased left a sister surviv
ing him by the name of Mrs. Jane
Haynes, residing at MarysYllle, Calif.
To all of which we certify by at
taching our signature hereto this 10th
day of June, A. D., 1915.
' O: JACKSON, , t.
Coroner of the First Precinct, County
of Yuma, State of Arizona.
Mrs. J. H. Willis, wife of the man
who did the killing is probably a
niece of the dead man. Her maiden
name was Haynes. Just before his
death yesterday afternoon he denied
that he was any relation to Mrs. Willis
tout Byron Gray stated that a year and
a half ago Haynes had made a state-1
ment to him to the effect that Mrs. j
Willis was probably his niece. j
According to Gray who was the,
only witness put upon the -stand who)
had heard Haynes make any state-1
ment of the shooting, Haynes said just J
before his death, "I didn't shoot." The :
Winchester which was found near his j
body, upon examination, showed that ,
that it had been recently discharged, i
A shell of the same calibre was found '
upon the ground near the deceased ;
which also had been recently dis-j
charged. j
According to the testimony yester-i
day Willis and Haynes had been con-!
stantly quarreling for the past two
years. The last serious quarrel oc-
curred some four weeks ago. None of j
the witnesses know whether the two j
men had quarreled the night or day
previous to the shooting.
One year ago, Willis had Haynes
arrested; about that time also Haynes
assaulted William Barber but noth-
J ing was done. It was hinted recent-
ly that the grand jury would look
into the troublesome MjT. Haynes; but,
again, nothing was done, and the kill
ing of Haynes occurred the following'
day. Though Willis has always had
the reputation of being a peaceable
iuan, the killing has occasioned no
surprise among those who live near
him and were familiar "'ith all the
