MURDER!

Noah Fox Killed by his Son-In-Law, George Riley

The usually quiet community of Sandy Hook was thrown into intense excitement last Monday evening by the killing of Noah Fox by his son-in-law, George Riley. The difficulty grew out of an unhappy family trouble, of which Fox accused a brother of Riley, his son-in-law, as being the author, and on Monday went to the field on the farm of Dr. Brumback, where Riley was at work, and it is alleged, abused and beat him. Riley afterwards secured his shot gun and went in pursuit of Fox, who it was reported, was then at John D. Ruffner's distillery. On his way he met Mr. Holmes, the Rural Mail Messenger, to whom he related the trouble he had with Fox, and said that he was going to shoot him in the legs. Mr. Holmes reasoned with him, and tried to persuade him to go back to work. But he could not be prevailed upon, and continued his course. When he and Fox met at the distellery it seems from all accounts that his anger had cooled and that he was disposed to leave without further trouble had not Fox followed him up. Fox, it is stated, twice demaned him to put down his gun, which he did, but at the same time warned Fox not to advance upon him. Fox, not heeding the warning, went towards Riley, when the latter raised his gun and fired, the load, consisting of bird short, entering Fox's body near the heart, causing instant death. The weapon was a single-barrel shot gun and the distance between the two men when the short was fired was only about twenty five steps.

Riley made no effort to escape and was arrested the same night by Sheriff Rosser and lodged in jail in this place. He is about thirty years old and has a wife and two children. Fox was about sixty years old and lived in Beahm's Hollow above Kimball.

Riley has retained Mr. Robert F. Leedy to defend him. Preliminary examination has been waived and the case will be presented by the next grand jury.

'Squire Lee Cullers, acting coroner, held an inquest on Monday night, and the verdict of the jury was in accordance with the above facts.

Fox was buried on Wednesday in his father's old grave yard near Mr. John S. Printz's. He was a son of the late David Fox.

George Housden***

Page Courier, Thursday 21 May 1896

Strange Suicide

Mr. W.T. Turner, of Newport, this county, reports to THE COURIER the particulars of a strange death, generally believed to be a suicide, which occurred about two and a half miles northwest of Newport last Thursday evening. George Housden, son of Jas. Housden, aged about 22 years, was found dead on last Friday morning near the foot of the Massanutton mountain. His death was caused by a heavy charge of shot from a single barrel shot gun, the load entering the left breast over the heart and penetrating so far back as to bulge the skin on his back. The gun was found by his side, and also a stick with which it is supposed he pushed the trigger causing the discharge. The young man’s mind had been impaired for sometime, and the day he left home his mother asked where he was going with his gun, when he replied that he “was going out to kill the devil.” All the circumstances point to the fact that the rash act was unquestionably perpetrated by his own hands. Young Housden had been married only about three weeks, his wife being a daughter of Perry Housden.
