Woman Murdered; Youth Is Suspected
Mrs. Frank Garlock of the Auburn section, about 50, was shot and killed Wednesday evening as she sat at the supper table in her home.
Frank Garlock had been in Baker during the day and found her body in the chair when he returned home at dusk.
Clarence Woolery, a 14-year-old boy who had lived on the Garlock farm for about five years, is missing as is the farmer’s .44 calibre rifle. The woman was shot with a .44 calibre bullet and was probably killed instantly.
The boy is reported to have quarreled frequently with Mrs. Garlock although Garlock says that his wife was always kind to the boy.
State and county officers are looking for the armed youth whose mother, now in Spokane, is said to have formerly lived in Baker.
