Shiner December 10.—Henry Wick, 19 years old, and a son of Mr. Frank Wick, a prominent German farmer, who lives about six miles east of here, committed suicide by shooting himself with a shotgun at an early hour yesterday morning. Young wick was missed at the house yesterday morning and search was made for him, when his body was found a short distance from the house in the pasture. The deed was done with a shotgun, which he had placed between the eyes. His head was literally blown off, only the front part of the face being left. A few months ago a good friend of Henry committed suicide by shooting, and this matter had preyed heavy on his mind ever since, until his mind gave way and he followed his friend to the grave.
Heinrich Wick, 28 Dec 1889 – 9 Dec 1907, was buried in St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery, near Hallettsville.
