Bullet Wound in Head is Fatal for 13-Year-Old County Youngster
Classmates will pay final homage to Teddy Charles Cornforth, 13-year old Seward boy, at funeral services at 2:30 p. m. Sunday from the Seward church.
Young Cornforth, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Cornforth, died late Friday in a Guthrie hospital after being shot in the head with a bullet from a .22 rifle. The certificate of death listed it as a suicide.
Burial will be in the Seward cemetery under the direction of the Davis Funeral home, Guthrie.
Besides his parents, the lad is survived by two brothers, Orval, 17, and Merle, 15; a grandfather, C. W. Corn, of Lawton; and grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. C. Carney, of Walters.
The 13-year-old youngsteer, blond and freckled-faced, had attended school the past eight years at Rose Valley hear his home. This year he enrolled in High School, as a freshman at Navina.
Members of the family said he had been depressed of late, and that he did not want to continue his studies.
