Brunig, Henry - First Sergeant
Army Veteran Takes Own Life When His Horses Are Killed
NEW ORLEANS, July 2. (AP)--The 21 artillery horses First Sergeant Henry Brunig loved, were led out and shot this week, condemned as too old for service.
Sergeant Brunig was found dead Thursday night, a bullet wound in his head, his revolver by his side.
"The only explanation I can think of," said his uncle, H. E. Brunig, "is that Henry was grieving over the horses." Dr. C. Grenes Cole, coroner, said the death was a suicide.
