62-YEAR OLD MAN'S DEATH RULED SUICIDE

The death of a 62 year-old rural Superior man was ruled a suicide by Winnebago County Coroner Duane I. Moore this morning.

Dead is Roy E. Benedict, formerly of Neenah. Moore said the man died at about 9 p.m. Thursday of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

According to Winnebago County authorities, Benedict's body was found lying on the ground at the rear of his 1965 auto as it was parked on Lasley Point Road, about one mile west of the Highway 110 intersection in the Town of Winneconne.

An unidentified Town of Winneconne man who was driving by discovered the body at about 10:16 p.m. Thursday.
Benedict, who was a resident of Neenah most of his life, had recently moved to the Superior area. Officials said he had been depressed.

Moore said the man died from a shot from a .30-.30 caliber, lever action rifle.

Funeral arrangements are pending at the Mueller Funeral Home, Winneconne.
