GREENCASTLE MAN DIES BY OWN HAND
A certificate of death by suicide has been issued in the case of Paul K. Stumbaugh, 7 South Carlisle Street, Greencastle, who was found dead Sunday morning.
Stumbaugh's partially frozen body was found with a bullet wound in the left chest in his auto in a parking lot at Caledonia State Park.
Dr. S. D. Shull, Franklin County coroner, issuing the certificate of suicide, said there would be no inquest.
State Police had launched an inquest into the case because the body was found in the front seat and a rifle was found on the back seat. An investigation revealed a suicide note between the pages of a Bible.
Stumbaugh, who was 34 years old and was 34 years old and was unemployed, was last seen at his Greencastle home early Saturday afternoon. Police believe that he shot himself late Saturday afternoon.
Detective George Funk said that all theories of foul play had been ruled out.
Surviving are his parents, John and Beulah V. (Kuhns) Stumbaugh, Greencastle; daughter, Paula Kay, at home; brothers, Cletis O., Richard S., both of Chambersburg; John, Jr., Harrisburg; and sister, Mrs. Dorothy Demarco, York, Pa.
He was a member of Otterbein United Brethren Church, Waynesboro, and a veteran of World War Two.
The funeral will be held Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the Zimmerman Funeral Home, Greencastle. Revs. A. E. Martin and N. W. Brechbiel will officiate. Interment will be in Green Hill Cemetery, Waynesboro.
Friends may call at the funeral home this evening from 7 to 9 o'clock.
