Two of the victims are the little daughters of James W. Cupp, aged 5 and 12. Two were sons of Charles Zager, aged 13 and 11, and the fifth an orphan boy aged 15 named Charlie Petrie.

He was on the point of being arrested, but got matters hushed up and delayed taking his life until he could get his wife and children and his aged parents, who were visiting, off on the forenoon train. He then went to his house and prepared for death. He took off all his clothes but his underwear, lay down upon his back and fired the fatal shot into his breast just below the heart When he was found shortly after the act by parties who went in search of- him, the following confession was discovered ;uear his body and a letter to his wife,, which ; is not yet made public: "To the Public: I sacrifice myself to save others from disgrace. I hope that my acts will not be laid up against my family. I have spent my-wife's* money with what I have'taken and leave her nothing. When death comes, charity should begin. While the beginning was not my fault, I cannot explain, and for that reason I assume all responsibilities. Yours, A, C, HESUEKSHOTT."
