Flowers Found Dead
These Flowers lived in Caddo about ten years ago, and conducted a lunch and hamburger stand.
Nacogdoches, Texas, June 26- S. G. Flowers, 73, and his son, Glenn Flowers, 33, are dead as the result of a double tragedy early today at the home of the older Flowers niece 14 miles from Nacogdoches.
The father was found on the floor with a knife wound in his throat. The son had two bullet wounds in his head. Justice of the Peach rendered a verdict of suicide in each instance.
Two letters left by the senior Flowers said; “You will find $1.40 in my grip. I am ruined and have no home and could not make a living for me and Glenn and cannot bear for him to be left as he does not know how to get along.”
The men came here from Nocona , Texas.
