Springfield, Mb. Stanley Ketchel,
champion middleweight pugilist of the
world,- died as the result of a wound
by a bullet fired from a rifle in the
hand of Walter A. Hurtz, a laborer
on the ranch of R. P. Dlckerson. mit
near Conway, Mo,
Hurtz was later captured at the
home of Thomas Haggard, one mile
from Nlangua, Mo., and was taken to
the Webster County Jail at Marsh
field, where he 1 being guarded. ' '
After being placed in his cell the
prisoner made a confession In which
he declared he shot Ketchel in self
defense. He said be ordered the
prizefighter to throw uq bis hands and
fired when Ketchel refused to obey. "
Conscious until near the end, Kern

The part 'played, by the woman in
the case, Fannie Hurtz, who claims
Ketchel's murderer as her husband,

by officers at Conway, it is believed
she is suspected of luring Ketchel to
a chair which she nad placed in such
ai position that the occupant could
not percelcve anyone who left the
front door of the house. It was while
sitting in this chair that the cham -
plon was shot.
