The Indianapolis Star
Shelbyville, Ind., May 20--- Mrs. Jessie
Lynch, 26 years old, shot herself
with a revolver at her home here yesterday, in a suicide attempt, and is in
critical condition. She is the wife of Arthur Lynch, saw mill operator
here, who states that despondency over ill health caused the act. Mrs.
Lynch was alone at the time. The bullet passed through her left lung above
the heart. The shot was fired in an upstairs room of the house and Mrs.
Lynch succeeded in reaching the front veranda of the house, where she fell
screaming to the floor.
