The remains of Mrs. Lucy Bowen, age 61, of Indianapolis, were interred in the East cemetery here, yesterday afternoon. Mrs. Bowen committed suicide in her apartment in Indianapolis, Monday night, when she attached a hose to a gas jet and placed the other end in her mouth. Before committing the rash act she had mailed a letter to her sister-in-law, Mrs. Lem Trotter, at Speedway. Mrs. Trotter found the body when she forced her way into the apartment. Mrs. Bowen had been in impaired health for a number of weeks. She was the daughter of Mrs. Amanda Marsh of this place.
