The, girls The death of Mrs. Sadie Alice Stewart, 70, Armstrong, was ruled suicide by the Emrtiet county medical' examiner's office 'Thursday following a complete .investigation of circumsta'nces after' Mrs. s "Stg« wart's badly burned" body was found early, Tuesday, Mar. 20 lying on a" snow bank outside o the home where she was living. At first, it was thought Mrs Stewart had burned to death accl dentally as she put kerosene' in a stove at the home of her brother Alfred Hackerson, with whom she and her husband lived, south o Armstrong. However, further investigation indicated there was nothing to show that anyone had attempted to light the stove and nothing was disturbed inside, the house. The medical examiner said.that it is probable MrS. Stewart drenched herself with kerosene and lit it with a match. She was found burned beyond recognition by /her brother and husband, Irvin, later. The men had been asleep in rooms on the ground-floor of'the house when the tragedy occurred. Her face and front portions of her body were badly burned.
