HOMER BOWLES DIES; REVOLVER FOUND NEARBY
Homer Bowles, 45, of 208 1/2 West Fourth Street, rear, was found dead in his home last night at 11:15 o'clock. The body was in an upstairs room near a bed with a .32-caliber revolver nearby. The bullet entered the right temple and came out the left side of his head.
A few minutes before he had told his wife that he was going to bed. His wife was just going to go upstairs when she heard a shot and rushed to the room. He is said to have been in a pleasant mood during the evening when Mr. and Mrs. Bowles entertained friends.
At other time of late, Mr. Bowles is said to have been despondent. He had been under a doctor's care for the last year.
When the body was found, Night Chief of Police Russell Osborne and Officers Steve Persin and Tom Donovan were called. Coroner Frank Gubbins was then summoned and took charge of the body.
Mr. Bowles was a resident of Montana for 28 years . He lived in Anaconda for the last eight years. Several years ago he operated the Five Mile Inn. He was born in Missouri. Besides the widow, Mrs. Marie Bowles, he is survived by a daughter, Maxine Bowles of Drummond, and a son, Bernard Bowles of Seattle, Wash., and a brother, Ira Bowles of Drummond.
During his residence in Anaconda he made scores of friends, who will sincerely grieve his death. The body is at the P. J. Finnegan company's chapel. Funeral arrangements have not been made. Coroner Gubbins stated after his investigation that no inquest will be held.
