Mildred Langreder death noticeMiss Mildred Langreder, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Langreder, was accidentally shot, Sunday afternoon, and died two hours later at St. James Hospital, Chicago Heights aged 25 years, 11 months.

Donald M. Borrows, 5847 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, who was visiting at the Langreder home, two miles south of Beecher, was loading an old fashioned 22-caliber rifle, when it was accidentally discharged, the bullet striking at the base of the skull and passing nearly through the head. Borrows was outside the house at the time, the bullet going through the kitchen screen door and striking the young woman, who was sitting on a couch, surrounded by members of the family, who were but inches beside her.
