CROWE, Bessie (see additional articles Tragic Death )

The home of Silas Crowe, at a lonely spot on Savage Mountain, about five miles from here, was the scene of a mysterious shooting that is baffling the efforts of the coroner's jury endeavoring [where] to the place the blame for the death of Mr. Crowe's daughter, Bessie, aged 16 years.  Tuesday afternoon about three o'clock the elder members of the Crowe family went away from home to return when summoned by neighbors and find the lifeless body of the child who has come to her death from the effects of a gunshot wound in the back of the head. The charge had entered just back of her left ear, tearing the back of her head off.  There was no eye witness in the shooting, and the story told by a brother and a sister of the dead girl is doubted by the jury on the case. The brother, which is several years older than the dead girl, and a sister, several years younger, state that they were on the outside of the house and upon hearing a shot ran to find their sister with the gun in her hand lying on the floor. This story was at once disqualified by the jury impaneled, the Justice of the Peace, George Brown, acting coroner, when they had examined the body of the dead girl and failed to find any burns or powder marks.  At a late hour Wednesday, no solution of the mystery had been reached. The brother and sister are both being held as witnesses.

The bodies were taken to the Cunningham morgue  where they were prepared for burial.  The girls in the factory had been warned not to go near the elevator and placards were posted, telling them to keep away.

She is the fifth in the family to meet an accidental death in four years.  Miss Crowe's mother [Blanche McNulty Crowe] went to Fairmont from Frostburg some time ago.
