He was 64 years of age and is survived by his wife, one son, and two daughters. Mr Turner began work for the B & O railroad when a young man had been with them ever since. For many years he ran on through freight between Grafton and Parkersburg but owing to advancing years was given a turn in the Grafton yards, which he had for several years. He continued firing one of the yard engines until within the past few months when he found it necessary to go on the sick list.

TURNER, Miss Maggie

Cumberland Md, Feb 14 - Saying as he claims, jestingly, "I will shoot your toes off," Lint Helmick, son of George W. Helmick, at Hendricks, W. VA., discharged a rifle with which he had been hunting and the ball entered the stomach of Miss Maggie Turner, aged nineteen years. She died in a few hours. Helmick had been called to dinner, and because of his being slow, Miss Turner said she would take a broomstick to him. He was at the time fumbling with the loaded gun. The shooting, which Helmick says was accidental, followed. No one witnessed the tragedy.

TURNER, Miss May (see follow-up story "Murder & Mayhem")

With the top of her head blown off, Miss May Turner of New Baltimore, Somerset County, was found at the home of Howard Corley near New Buena Vista, Juniata Township, this county, Sunday afternoon, breathing her last. Corley says he believes the girl committed suicide, but this theory is discredited by all who have been connected with the investigation. The discrediting of the suicide theory advanced by Corley is due to the fact that the almost lifeless body of the girl was found in the room, with the shotgun containing a recently-exploded shell standing nearby, while there was a broken pane of glass in the window through which the shot had entered and numerous tiny leaden pellets were found
imbedded[sic] in the wall in range with the hole in the window pane. Broken glass was strewn over the table at which the young lady was sitting when shot, and the floor was covered with spots of blood and pieces of the broken glass. There is no doubt that the person who fired the shot at the girl placed the weapon in the room after the crime was committed in order to leave the impression that the girl had fired the shot that ended her life. According to all the information obtained, Miss Turner, who is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Emanuel Turner, of New Baltimore, last Thursday went to the home of Corley, who is her uncle, to keep house for him during the absence of Mrs. Corley, who was visiting her father, Solomon Ritchey, in Napier Township, this county. Miss Turner had in her care at the time three small children. Corley said he was out in the haymow of his barn at the time the girl was shot and that the first he knew of the tragedy was when one of his little sons ran to him and told him of finding the wounded girl in the room. Corley says he did not hear the shot. The child when questioned said he was playing in an outhouse when he heard the shot and soon afterward found the wounded girl and ran to the barn, telling his father what had happened. Corley then notified Squire Bittner, the nearest neighbor, and when Mr. Bittner appeared he found the girl unconscious and breathing her last, a gaping wound in the head being the cause of death. Sheriff Grant Dodson, Deputy Sheriff Andrew Dodson, District Attorney D. C. Reiley and Miss Lulu Naus, a stenographer, went to New Buena Vista Monday morning and secured all the evidence available, including a statement from Corley to the effect that he believed the girl had fired the shot that ended her life. When Corley was shown how the shot had plowed through the window and some of the leaden missiles had struck the wall on the other side of the room, he is reported to have said that he could offer no explanation as to these phases of the situation. So far as could be learned from the county officials who investigated the case, no motive for the crime has yet been established. It is believed, however, that evidence of direct nature is being withheld for the inquest, which is expected to place the crime upon the suspect. It is said that Corley was drunk Saturday night and Sunday, and when in this condition is considered a bad man. Squire L. C. Markle of New Buena Vista, acting deputy coroner, empaneled the following jury: S. C. Mowry, John M. Housel, H. E. Whisker, Bruce Zeigler, A. P. Suter and Harry Suter, which met on Monday and questioned Corley, his children and several others, but no agreement was reached by the jury. It is likely that another meeting will be held today, when a verdict will be rendered, as to how the young girl came to her death, and who is responsible for the deed. The funeral of the murdered girl was held Wednesday morning at New Baltimore in the Roman Catholic Church, of which she was a member. She was about 18 years old, was a comely young lady, and was held in high esteem by all who knew her.
