Murder and Suicide --Dr. Remington Kills His Mother and Himself. --They formerly lived here.—But for the past eighteen months at Hot Springs, Arkansas—He tried to kill himself while here.

The following dispatch from Hot Springs, Ark., was published in the daily papers of Tuesday morning.

This afternoon the dead bodies of Dr. E. M. Remington and his mother, Mrs. Mary E. Remington, were discovered in their cottage, No. 150 Whitting avenue…..Mrs. Remington was a sister of Mayor W. W. Waters, of Hot Springs, and Dr. Remington was formerly assistant to the president of the board of health. He was about twenty four years of age.

The family came here from Atlanta, Ga., about eighteen months ago. Dr. Remington was addicted to opiates, and is believed to have been demented.

Mrs. Remington was a resident of this place for several years and still owns a home here. She with her husband and son left Cartersville and lived for awhile in Florida, and when she returned her husband remained behind and is probably still in that state. [Long article]
