Neillsville Girl is Suicide at Chicago

Chicago - Love for Edmund R. Reid, a Highland Park brakeman, is believed by the police to have been the cause of the suicide of Miss Georgetta Prochavka. She turned on the gas in her room at 921 Leland avenue. Three years ago she came to Chicago from her home in Neillsville, Wis. She obtained a good position. Then, according to the police, she met Reid and grew to love him. Suddenly, the police think, she learned he was married and had a family. So she killed herself.
