Murder at Newton
J. R. Zollinger, a merchant of Newton and ex-sheriff, was brutally murdered. A little after 9 o’clock in the evening his wife and daughter heard his footsteps on the porch, and opening the door found him in a dazed condition. He was able to tell them someone had struck him, but before he could reveal more he lost consciousness and died a few hours afterwards. During the war Mr. Zollinger was an officer in the Twenty- eighth Iowa regiment.
