Oct 9, 1913 SENATOBIA GIRL KILLS SELF
DAUGHTER OF JOHN YANCY FOUND DEAD BY HER FATHER
SENATOBIA: Miss YANCY, the only daughter of JOHN YANCY, a prominent farmer living three miles north of Senatobia, committed suicide Saturday morning by shooting herself through the heart with a shotgun. Mr. YANCY and his two sons were in the field near the house at work. The young lady's mother is dead, and she was left at home alone. On coming to the house at noon Mr. YANCY found the door fastened. On forcing his entrance he was met by the sight of his daughter lying across the floor cold in death. He gave the alarm and the Officers from Senatobia and Coldwater responded. It was at first reported that the young lady had been murdered but on investigation it was found that the wound had been self-inflicted.
