JOHNS, Harry Frederick

FROSTBURG — Harry Frederick Johns, 42, of 79 linden Street, was found dead in his bedroom at 10:20 last night and Dr. H. V. Deming, deputy county medical examiner, issued a verdict of "suicide by shotgun," Dr. Deming said Johns, an engineer at the Celanese plant, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound between the eyes about 4:30 p. m. He quoted the man's daughter, Elizabeth Johns, 12, as saying she was alone with her father when he said he was going upstairs and end his life. Johns' wife, the former Miss Ruth Fram, told authorities her husband had been ill with a sinus condition and remarked last Saturday that he could stand the suffering no longer. Elizabeth, according to authorities, heard the shot, but did not take her father's threat seriously since he had made such remarks before and had also fired a gun in the house. However, she went to the home of a sister, Anne Johns, 18, of 75 East Main Street, where she met her mother and related what happened. The mother told police they went home and tried the bedroom door but found it locked and surmised that Johns was sleeping. About 10:10 p. m. she became alarmed and reported the incident to Officers Lloyd Truley and Donald Griffith, who went to the residence and forced the door. Johns, son of Mrs. Annie (Brode) Johns and the late John Johns, was found on the bedroom floor. Besides his widow and daughters, he is survived by a son, Harry F. Johns, Jr., 16, and sisters, Mrs. Marshall Skidmore, Mrs. Harry Williams, and Mrs. Cora Myers, all of Frostburg, and Mrs. Russell Brower, Waynesboro, Pa.
