Crazed Dakotan Fires Many Shots Displaying Remarkable Tenacity.

Linton.—Eleven bullets were fired by Louis F. Foell, aged 62, into his head in a suicide that indicates remarkable tenacity of purpose. With a 22-caliber repeating rifle Foell had pulled the trigger 10 times after the first bullet entered his head and shortly afterwards his dead body was found by his son. Seven of the bullets had passed entirely through his skull.

County officials conducting an investigation found evidence of suicide conclusive despite the remarkable number of bullet wounds. A letter written several hours before, though rambling, indicated his intentions. Within the past week Foell also had arranged for the division of his property after his death.
