[NI142922] Johnstown Trib, Mar 15 1933 BOY MEETS DEATH AS SMALL WAGON GOES OFF BRIDGE 4 yr old Merle Helsel, Scalp Level, Drowned in Paint Creek. BODY IS RECOVERED. Special to Trib SCALP LEVEL, Mar 15 - Believed to have lost control of a sm coaster wagon on which he was riding, 4 yr old Merle Helsel, s/o Mr. & Mrs. Frank Helsel, Bridge st, late yesterday afternoon plunged to his death in swollen waters of Paint Creek. The body was recovered a quarter of a mi from bridge spanning creek & from which Helsel boy's wagon plunged into stream. Ernest Hankey, employed as a fireman by PA RR Co here, & who was attracted to the scene of the accident, waded into stream & carried boy ashore. Although obliged to battle against strong current of stream, which had been swollen considerably by heavy rains, Hankey succeeded in effecting rescue, but was practically exhausted when he reached shore. Membs of Scalp Level & Paint Vol Fire Co were called out when Burgess W. H. Lehman spread the alarm & said today that Hankey came dangerously near being swallowed up by the strong current. Hankey fell as he neared shore with the Helsel boy & was taken from water by George Baumgardner & George Schalles, membs of fire co. Discovery of accident was made by Helsel boy's mother & it is believed that the child had been in the water for at least 15 mins. There were no eyewitnesses to the accident. With his small coaster wagon, which he had received from his parents as a gift, the child left parental home yesterday abt 2 pm to visit at Barefoot home, which is located on a small grade leading to the bridge spanning Paint Creek. Shortly after 3 pm the boy left for his home. He started to coast down the unpaved grade in his wagon, & it is believed that as he reached a point abt half way across the 35-foot span he lost control & plunged into the stream. Becoming alarmed at her sm son's absence Mrs. Helsel went to the Barefoot home & was advised that the child had left abt 15 mins before. As Mrs. Helsel was making a search for the boy she observed the wagon, lodged against the bank of the stream, abt 25 ft from bridge. Rescue workers said today that the swiftness of current probably kept the body from sinking. Vol fireman attempted to revive the boy by artificial respiration, & when this proved futile he was rushed to Windber Hosp where he was pronounced dead. Hankey said that he believed he observed a faint pulse beat as he rescued the boy, but hosp attaches said that the boy had been dead for several mins before he was admitted to the institution. Coroner Cyrus W. Davis, Conemaugh, conducted an investigation last night. No inquest will be necessary, it was announced. While a railing on the bridge was missing, having been knocked off some time ago, it was said today that the sm wagon probably would have gone under the railing & into the stream, even if it had been in place. Paint Creek usually has water to a depth of abt a ft, but heavy rains have swollen the stream to a hgt of abt 4 1/2 ft. The victim is survived by his parents & a sis Violet Jane, aged 2 yrs. Funeral serv will be conducted at Evang Ch tomorrow at 2 pm, in charge of Rev. D. G. Baumgardner. Bur Dunmire Cem, Elton, in charge of Lloyd Shank, local mortician.

[NI143184] D.E. HILDERBRAND FOUND DEAD HERE OF RIFLE WOUND Death Tentatively held Suicide Despite Odd Angles in Case NO INQUEST LIKELY. Entry Made in Sister's Diary Probed; Explanation Offered. David E. Hilderbrand, 54, was found dead last night, shot through the head in a bedroom at his home at 705 Linden Ave, Moxham. A small .22-caliber rifle from which the lethal bullet had been fired lay near the body. When they 1st reached the scene city police officers & Deputy Coroner John Conway reached the conclusion that Hilderbrand had taken his own life. Conway returned to the home later to make a further investigation after members of the family allegedly had expressed that the victim had been murdered. Conway said today, however, that the death apparently was suicide & would be listed as such in his records unless something else develops to substantiate a murder theory. He stated that no inquest would be held if nothing else develops in the case. DIARY ENTRY PROBED. According to city police, the victim's aged father, Lovinius HILDERBRAND, & his sis, Verda, were on the 1st floor of the house. The sis told police she heard the sound of a thud upstairs abt 7:40 pm. In the sis' diary, according to investigating officers, they found an entry under the date of Apr 13, which read: "David Edward HILDERBRAND shot himself." Authorities said the sis claimed she made a mistake in the date when she entered the notation after her bro's death had been discovered. The sis was said to have been a pt in a mental hosp at one time. She also was reported to be interested in "cures by prayer & sacrifice." SUICIDE THEORY SUPPORTED Both Conway & police officers said the relative position of the body & the rifle indicated that Hilderbrand had inflicted the fatal wound. Only 1 shell -the empty 1 from which the lethal bullet was fired -was found for the .22-caliber rifle, according to police. A .32-caliber revolver, with shells, & a high powered rifle also were found in the home. All 3 of the weapons were said to have been owned by the victim. Police said neighbors informed them that Hilderbrand had been despondant over unemployment. The victim was also said to have been suffering of high blood pressure & epilepsy. FUNERAL MON.
