Rochester Sentinel - Thursday, January 5, 1950

W. E. ACKERT, 58, Kewanna furniture dealer, committed suicide Wednesday afternoon by placing a hose from the exhaust pipe of his car through a back window of the vehicle.
The body was discovered by Leonard CHEMNESS who was hunting in a woods four miles east of Winamac. Chamness notified Mrs. Elmer PETERS, a near-by resident, who, in turn, called Pulaski county Sheriff Hubert BOLLHAUVE.
Ackert, who was associated with Karl GAST, Inc., Akron, had been ill since last Thursday. He left home at 9 a.m. Wednesday with a statement that he would never return. He apparently drove north on Road 17, to 14, then west to a point four miles east of Winamac, down a gravel road a quarter of a mile and into a woods.
He was found in the back seat of the car, reportedly with the hose in his mouth. The motor of the car had stopped running.
A Kewanna resident for nearly 20 years, and a native of Toronto, Canada, he is survived by the wife, Anna Mae [ACKERT]; a son, Carson [ACKERT]; a daughter, Delores [ACKERT]; and one grandson.
The body was first taken to a Winamac funeral home and later returned to the Harrison Funeral Home, Kewanna. Arrangements are pending.
