Insane Woman's Deed

The Coloma Courier, September 19, 1900
For 6 years Lulu Terpening's mania lay in waiting before reaching a sudden and dark crescendo. Whereby she strangled her wardmate Rebecca Tireman with strips of clothing that she had fastened into a ligature. When the deed was discovered by a nurse making her rounds, Turpening was still pulling the makeshift cord. The murderess made no comment when asked about her deed.

And in German for the more adroit readers:

Indiana Tribune, September 8, 1900
