Otteson, Chris (1874? - 23 SEP 1928)

Sunday night Chris Otteson, who lived in the town of Lynn, Clark County, Wis., committed suicide by shooting himself, while alone in his bedroom.

Otteson was a bachelor, aged about 54, who has lived for a number of years on a small farm in the town of Lynn. He had some debts and appeared to be despondent about other matters.

Henry Winters, chairman of the town, was notified of the tragedy and at once took charge of the place and notified the District Attorney; it was not thought necessary, however, to hold an inquest. The funeral is held today, Wednesday, at the home.
