The news that Mrs. Lucy Ellen Depp of Summer Shade, wife of Mr. P. W. Depp had committed suicide by burning, shocked the entire community last week.
On Thursday morning, Mrs. Depp told her daughter she was going to take a bath, went to the bathroom where she saturated her clothes with kerosene oil and applied a match.
