Mt. Auburn Man Suicide
Reason for the suicide of Albert Abbott 56, who bled to death in a ravine near Glory after cutting his wrists with a razor sometime between Saturday noon and 5 p.m. Tuesday when his body was bound in unknown.
Abbott, who had been making his home with a niece, Mrs. Alice Wescott, three miles from here, left the house about 11 a.m. Saturday, but as he frequently remained away for varying periods, no alarm was felt until Tuesday when Mrs. Wescott and three friends, Mrs. Fred Ambern and Mr. and Mrs. Mont Primmer, started to search for him.
The body was found near the rock crusher at Glory, hidden in a small timbered ravine. Death had been recent, the physician who was called said.
A letter found near the body was addressed to his brother, George Abbott, Independence. It has not yet been opened. Another brother, James Brandon and a son Lane, New Jersey, New York, survive, as does a daughter Esther, whose whereabouts are not known.
Mr. Abbott lived in Mt. Auburn most of his life and had been employed here and at LaPorte City. He had been in poor health and out of work for some time and it is belied he became despondent
