Double Murder and Suicide Followed by Two Cases of Insanity

Galena, Kan., April 4 – Boston Mills, the scene of the killing of the Cox brothers by Newton Walters, and his subsequent suicide, is still in a ferver of excitement.  Today Levi Rinker, the man on whose farm Walters was employed, has become insane from the shock caused by the terrible tragedies.  The murderer’s mother has also become a raving maniac since her son’s crime became known.  The Wichita Daily Eagle, Wichita, Kansas.  April 5, 1895.  Page 1.  © Transcribed by Darren McMannis for the Kansas Council of Genealogical Societies, Inc.
