TRIPLE TRAGEDY
-------
Wife Murder and Suicide, and the Wife’s
Brother Dangerously Wounded
-------
CHARLOTTE, N. C., Dec. 11. – Near Henrietta Mills, Rutherford County, Tuesday, Holloway Wall shot and killed his wife, dangerously wounded her brother, and then put an end to his own life. About eighteen months ago he married Miss Eva Haynes and went west. After eight or nine months he deserted her. Her relatives assisted her to return home. He had not been heard of since. Tuesday he arrived in Forest City, procured a conveyance and drove out to where his wife was living. On arriving there he called her to the door, drew his revolver and shot her down, shooting her twice after she fell, and then shot and dangerously wounded her brother, R. E. Haynes, who came to her assistance. He then mounted his horse and rode away. A party went in pursuit and found him about two miles distant, lying dead by the roadside with a bullet in his heart.
