BEHEADING HIS WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 28 June 1884
BEHEADING HIS WIFE. ALTOONA, PA., April 7, 1884.—Mrs. Dr. L. U. Beach, the wife of a prominent physican, was discovered in a room at her residence this morning with her head cut almost from her body. An investigation de- &nbsp; veloped circumstances of so suspicious a character that the doctor was arrested. The coroner's jury found that Mrs. Beach came to her death at the hands of her hus- band, and the doctor was accordingly re- manded to gaol. He admits that he killed his wife, and wants to be shot or hanged. Since his arrest he tried to borrow a knife, and on being refused asked for a pin, which was also refused, as it was believed he intends &nbsp; to commit suicide. He was received into the Lutheran Church the previous morning, and partook of the communion. It is generally believed that he is insane.
