Ed Ennes Commits Suicide


Ed Ennes, a Monett night watch at the Frisco yards, took his own life Thursday of last week by shooting himself in the head. The Monett Times published that afternoon gave the following account of the affair:

"About noon Thursday, Frisco Officer Ed Ennis became violently insane, following a week's sickness and terrorized his family and neighbors finally shooting himself three times in the head. Two were scalp wounds.

Mr. Ennis became very ill Sunday, and his daughters were summoned. He at times before their arrival showed temporary derangement and neighbors hid any weapons they could find for fear of his doing injury to himself.

On Thursday he became possessed with the idea of self destruction while in a fit of temporary insanity. His family and friends did all they could to quiet him but could not get him away from his mania. He went to McCampbell's barber shop and was shaved and left telling the barber goodbye. He also bade several of his neighbors goodbye.

He went back home by a devious route, going in and out several houses. Thinking his physician would be able to control him. Dr. A. Jones was summoned and attempted to relieve him of his pistol., which he had gained possession of. Mr. Ennis warned him to stay way, he then fired one shot at the doctor whom he luckily missed, and then turned the weapon on himself. This occurred in the back of his home at the woodshed.

He was taken into the house where his injuries were dressed and he was placed under the influence of a sleeping medicine. He will be taken to a Springfield hospital this evening.

The people of Monett are very sorry to this terrible trouble and hope Mr. Ennis will recover with his mind clear and rational"

Later: Mr. Ennis died on the train enroute from Monett to the hospital at Springfield Thursday night. [Ennis and Ennes spellings both used.]
