Wright, Mrs. John (Threatened by Husband - 6 APR 1912)

Saturday night -- complaint was made by Mrs. John Wright that her husband threatened to kill her and their children. Mr. and Mrs. Wright have been occupying a part of the O'Neill House during the winter. Saturday after the fire they were taken in at the Neillsville Hotel. During the day both of them had been subpoenaed to give such information as they could as to the origin of the fire, and had undergone a grueling cross-examination. Mr. Wright is in very poor health, suffering from Bright's Disease and Dropsy, he also drinks heavily. The agitation of the fire, the examination, ill health and drink may have made him desperate. Mrs. Wright is said to be destitute of clothing. All sorts of rumors are afloat and regarding the origin of the fire and suspected parties. It is best at this time to suspend judgment and condemn no one until more facts are known.
