Tombstone Tuesday George Day 1869 to 1928 Murder ? Duluth Minnesota

For this weeks Tombstone Tuesday  I am going to share the tombstone of my great uncle George Day brother of great grandpa William Albert Day.

George died by a gunshot.  Was it murder or suicide?  I have visited the library in Duluth Minnesota and read some of the newspaper articles.  They started out as murder while he was working as a security guard at the docks.  Later article hinted at suicide.

I have not found any other articles in Duluth and I should search old newspapers in St Paul to see if they wrote anything else.

George is buried in Mora Minnesota next to wife Selma.  Death Certificate states cause of death Homicide Gun shot to the head.
