Playing gun kills mother
Bobby Lee Wood, 4 year old, in bed with measles, shows the 38 revolver which, accordant to father James Wood, Jr., he had been given as a plaything, along with a “lot of old selles which we didn’t think would fit the gun”. The father told authorities he was awakened by the shot Easter Sunday, and found his wife, Beatrice, 20, lying on the floor fatally wounded and Bobby sitting on the bed the revolver playing at his side.

Please take good care of my little son. I love him so much. Tell him some day that mommy will always love him and worry that he’s well or not. Dear Tod forgive me but i just can’t find another way. Don’t let anyone have him that won’t love him. Call him Harry. He is légal. Feed him liquid similar. Half water -half milk. Take good care of him. Put it in the paper so i’ll know is ok. Love, always, to my little darling. Mommie.
