Poisoned By the Father
Eight Little Ones Lose Their Lives on Account of Jealousy
Griffin, Ohio, Oct. 10 News has just reached this city of a tragedy that occurred in Pike county, near Milner, on Monday, in which eight or nine children lost their lives by poison administered by their father. It seems that Tom
Speer, taking advantage of his wife's absence, and being prompted by jealousy, administered the fatal drug to his children. The fiend is now behind bars. [The Langston City Herald, Langston City, O. T., October 19, 1895 - DD - Sub. by FoFG]
