CLINE, DUDLEY, HULL, SCHAEFER, SIMPLER, SYMAN Name of Newspaper is Daily News, Springfield, OH on Wednesday, March 11, 1925

Cornorer Gives Verdict of "Suicide" After Investigating Circumstances Surrounding Death of Mrs. W. H. SIMPLER; Husband is Held by Police. Death broke the bonds of wedlock last night when Mrs. W. R. SIMPLER, 24, formerly Miss Lois DUDLEY, ended her first year of married life as the fourth wife of William R. SIMPLER, with a bullet through her heart, while visiting the home of her parents at 230 E. Pleasant-st. A verdict of suicide was returned by Coroner Theodore SCHAEFER, who conducted an investigation. Mrs. SIMPLER, according to her relatives, had been suffering from ill health for more than five years. Yesterday afternoon after her husband had gone downtown to look for a job, she took his pistol from the bottom of his grip, pressed it to her heart and pulled the trigger, according to Coroner Theodore SCHAEFER. The led pellet traveled directly through the heart and left the body under the left shoulderblade, imbedding itself in the panel of her bedroom door. Her aged father who slept in the next room was awakened by the shot but closed his eyes again in sleep, believing that the report he heard was only the slamming of a door. Knowing her daughter to be in ill health Mrs. Charles DUDLEY, her mother, entered the daughter's bedroom to call her for the evening meal. She found the girl lying on the floor with her hands folded on her breast. When the girl failed to awaken upon being shaken she called a neighbor to assist in putting her in bed, believing that her daughter was only suffering from one of her "frequent fainting spells". As the mother lifted the girl's head from the floor she noticed a blood spot on her shirtwaist, and the glistening pistol fell from the folds of her skirt. Believing then that the girl was only injured she called Dr. R. R. Richison, the family physician. Dr. Richison upon arriving summoned Dr. L. L. SYMAN, police surgeon, and notified Coroner Theodore SCHAEFER and Police Headquarters. Mrs. Charles SIMPLER testified to police that the front door, adjacent to the death chamber, was found open when she came into the room. Police waited until the husband returned home and took him to headquarters and held him to account for his whereabouts at the time of the shooting. At police headquarters the husband stated that he had been informed of the shooting at Frank Demma's Cigar Store and run all the way home to verify the rumor. Coroner Theodore SCHAEFER and Dr. SYMAN and Detective Hugh CLINE quizzed the husband for three hours but reported that they had found no discrepancy in his story. SIMPLER admitted, police said, that he had been married four times, losing his first wife by death and the second two through divorce courts. Prosecutor Harry C. HULL ordered Simpler held over night until he could be quizzed by city detectives. The young wife and her husband had just returned from Muskegon, Mich., where they had lived during the year of their marriage. Police were puzzled by the "open door" and the report that the husband and wife had "fussed" before his departure early in the afternoon. Relatives of the girl stated that SIMPLER had "cursed" before leaving his young wife early in the afternoon. Coroner SCHAEFER "trailed" over SIMPLER's "story route" of the afternoon but found most of the business places closed. Dr. SYMAN stated last night that the husband had "told a straight story" and he believed he should be released. Mrs. SIMPLER is survived by her aged parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles DUDLEY, 230 W. Pleasant st., whom she was visiting at the the time of the shooting and a brother, Roy B. DUDLEY of 1607 Mound st. No funeral arrangements have been announced.
