LAPP, Conrad E.

Retired Machinist Found Dead Near Home
Conrad E. Lapp, 66, Believed to Have Shot Himself Late Last Night.
Conrad E. Lapp, aged 66, a retired Baltimore and Ohio machinist, of 107 Grand avenue, was found dead early this morning, in an alley about a hundred yards from his home.  State's Attorney William A. Huster stated it was a case of suicide.  A .32 calibre revolver was found lying beside the man and he had a bullet wound in his heart. Members of the family could give no motive for the suicide, except that Mr. Lapp had been in ill health.  It was stated at the home, Major Huster claims, that Lapp had gone to bed about 9 o'clock but between midnight and 12:30 o'clock, had gotten up and gone down stairs, presumably to smoke. Later however, when he did not return, members of the family became alarmed, and his daughter, Everal D. Lapp, went to search for him.  Unable to find him in the house, she went to the home of her brother, Royal P. Lapp, 5 Grand avenue, and together they returned to look for their father.  They found him lying in the alley. Lapp came to this city from Frostburg, MD., in 1912, and had been employed by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company until two years ago, when he was retired.  Besides his widow, Margaret C. Lapp, his son and daughter, he also leaves three brothers, George Lapp and Henry Lapp of this city, John Lapp of Barberton, Ohio, and two sisters, Elizabeth Lapp, Frostburg and Mrs. May Light, Lima, Ohio.
