A Double Tragedy

The Valentine Hibbs home, four mile northeast of Dexter, was the scene of one of the bloodiest tragedies ever reacted in central Iowa. Grant Hibbs, aged 32 years, fired one shot at his wife and then fatally shot himself twice through the head. After shooting himself he grabbed a knife and inflicted two very dangerous wounds to his wife before falling from the loss of blood. Hibbs had been released from the Mount Pleasant insane asylum as cured five weeks ago, but his insanity returned suddenly in a violent form.
