Hantke, Mrs. Paul (? - 30 SEP 1927)

Mrs. Paul Hantke, who home is six miles north of Granton, Clark County, Wis., was brutally murdered at her home last Thursday, Mr. Hantke, who was at a neighbor's helping fill silo, returned home at noon and found his brother Gus at the Paul Hantke home, and the body of his wife lying dead in a closed stairway.

The two brothers, Paul and Gus, have been doing the work of their two farms together and the refusal of the loan of a corn binder to Gus a short time before because of the need of it on the Paul Hantke farm is thought to have hastened Gus in Giving vent to the hate for Mrs. Hantke, to whom he blamed the refusal.

No statement has been made by Gus but because of circumstantial evidence he is being held by a warrant for murder in the first degree.

Funeral services were held Monday at the Fischer Church south of Granton, Rev. Buth officiating.

She leaves, besides her husband, one son, Lester 7, and two daughters, Zelma 11, and Mildred 14.
