Tuesday, September 16, 1924

Russell OLINGER, 18 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Daton OLINGER, formerly of Rochester, met a tragic death at Niles, Mich., Sunday evening when he was shot and instantly killed by a drunken man, Henry STROUP, 49 years old.  Mrs. George BIGGS of this city, a cousin of the dead youth, learned of the death Monday night.  Relatives also live at North Manchester.  Russell was well known here as he lived with his parents on East Ninth street until about six years ago when they move to LaPorte and then to Niles.

The crime is the result of liquor.  Both Olinger and his murderer lived in the same neighborhood in Niles.

Henry STROUP, the police story goes, left his home and went to a store not far away for cigars.  He was under the influence of liquor, it was charged.  He met Olinger's younger brother and, the lad says, showered him with a burst of profanity.  The boy ran home.

Stroup, on his way home, approached an automobile parked in front of the B.D. OLINGER residence.  The car was occupied by Russell OLINGER and Ray McBRIDE preparing for a pleasure motor ride with girl friends.

Stroup, it was said, again broke into a profane rage and cursed the boy occupants of the machine.  As they stepped from the car with purpose, it was said, to avenge the insults, Stroup drew a revolver and fired three bullets at Russell, all taking effect.  The boy died instantly.

While Olinger was being carried into the home of his father, Stroup ran home. He threw away the revolver and then walked to the police station, where he surrendered to officers.  He was taken to St. Joseph, Mich., last night several hours after the shooting and is held there for trial on the murder charge.
"Let the jury find the gun," Stroup remarked to officers when searched.  The revolver has not been found.

Word from Niles that the funeral would be at the South Pleasant church, North Manchester, Wednesday afternoon at two o'clock.
