DRIVEN TO SEEK DEATH.
Defendant In Two Breach of Promise Suits Kills Himself.
COUNFIL, BLUFFS, Ia., Oct. 7.—Frederick Leutzinger, one of the old residents of this city, was found dead in bed Saturday morning, having committed suicide by taking a dose of carbolic acid. The suicide was caused by worry over two breach of promise damage suits that were pending in the courts. Miss Clara Uhlenholst, of St. Louis, asked $35,000 and Hollie Graham, of this city, asked for $25,000. Leutzinger was a wealthy retired baker, who became complicated with the Graham woman some months ago. A few days ago she sent him word that she would kill him unless he settled with her.
Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows he was born Jan. 27, 1833 and died Oct. 5, 1895. He is buried in Fairview Cemetery.
