Crowl, Nelson – Obituary

Kills Self When Twins Arrive

Nelson Crowl, 45, a truck gardner, six miles east of Minam, in Wallowa county, shot and killed himself when he received word that his wife was the mother of twins born in the La Grande hospital.

The body was found at the Crowl home last Saturday five days after the act. It was Monday-five days earlier-that Crowl was notified form the hospital in La Grande that his 26-year old wife had presented him with twins.

The mother and babies, a boy and girl, were doing well, the message said. Mrs. Crowl when her friends broke the news to her at the hospital, wearily replied that she was not surprised. He had attempted to take his life before.
