Joseph Lindner
Dayton Daily Journal – December 31, 1894, Pg 4


Joseph Lindner, foreman of the Stickel brewery, died in his home, 914 Brown street, yesterday morning at 7:30. The cause of his death is a mystery. He was found by Phillip Kemp, the night watchman, on Monday evening, in the brewery, lying at the head of the stairs leading into the cellar. When found he was unconscious and seemed to be suffering great pain. Kemp moved him so that his head rested against the wall, until others came, when he was carried into the office, where stimulants were administered, and for a time he revived. He was then carried to his home, and Mr. McIlhenny sent for, who prescribed for him without giving any relief. About midnight Dr. Wilson was called, but was unable to relieve the sufferer. He was conscious at short intervals after he was found. The circumstances surrounding the death led to the belief that possibly violence had been used and that someone was responsible for his death. The Coroner was called, and after a careful investigation of the circumstances attending his death, ordered a post mortem examination. Drs. Reeve and Iddings, at the request of the Coroner, held a post mortem.

They found a slight scalp wound on the back part of the head, but the brain was uninjured. Lungs, heart, liver, kidneys and other organs of the body were in a healthy condition, but his neck was broken. The spinal cord was not severed, but was badly lacerated between the fifth and sixth cervical vertebrae, which caused his death. How this was done is not known, and may always remain a mystery.

One theory is that Mr. Lindner fell as he was coming up the stairway when near the top and struck his head against the cellar door. Another theory is that he fell from an attack of heart disease and struck his head against the wall. Still another is that he was struck and knocked down.

In the afternoon, it is stated he had some trouble with William Becherer, and that he ordered Becherer to leave the room, which he refused to do. Soon after William Stickel came in and put Becherer out. About an hour later Becherer was there again, but what occurred between him and Lindner is not certainly known. Alexander Sear, who lives on Brown street, and who was at the brewer at the time, says that he heard Lindner fall, and that Becherer was in the room at the time and led him out telling him to go away. A number of parties state that they heard Becherer say that he was sorry that he hit the old son of a b----.

Becherer was sent to the work house yesterday for another offense, and was visited at that place by a representative of the Journal in company with the Coroner and others. Becherer's statements to the Coroner threw but little light on the mystery; he admitted that he shoved Lindner down and told where and how he fell, but his statements were in conflict with those of other gentlemen. His statement that he was not angry with Lindner and had no wish whatever to hurt him, but when Lindner tried to pull him out he pushed him down and walked out of the brewery.

On Monday night, when Mr. Lindner seemed to be conscious, Mr. Stickel, in the presence of Dr. McIlhenny and others, asked him if any one hit him, and he said "No." He stated that he was overcome with heart disease and fell. This question was repeated several times, and each time he answered that he was not struck by any one. The Coroner will take testimony in the case Friday morning, beginning at 10 o'clock. This investigation may bring to light the facts in the case.

Mr. Lindner was in the sixty-fourth year of his life; he was of German birth, and came to Dayton some years ago from Cincinnati, and has been working for Mr. Stickel for several years. He is said to have been a valuable hand. He leaves a wife and six children, some of whom are married. Mr. Lindner was one of the most faithful of the men employed in the brewery. The verdict of the Coroner will be awaited with much interest.
