Brave Boy


frank dungan, murderer of james cole, ends his life at ellendale.

Frank Dungan, who shot and killed James Cole at Fullerton, this state, hung himself in his cell in the county jail at Ellendale last night. It is thought the man was insane.

After barring the door of his cell from the inside so that help could not reach him in time to save his life, Dnugan {sp} tied his suspenders about his neck and attaching these to a rope fastened to the top of the cell ended his life. When the prisoner's body was found, one foot was touching the floor.

The prisoner in the cell adjoining that of Dungan says that he did not hear a sound during the night.
