Roscoe Man Commits Suicide

March 5, 1912--In another Roscoe Fire Demon twist, 32 year old Fred Landrman took 20 "medinals", refused treatment, and died 17 hours later. Landrman had been questioned extensively about his involvement with the Roscoe fires. In a letter sent to the newspaper, Landrman "stoutly declared he was not responsible for the Roscoe fires." The reason he gave for suicide was his 12 year long illness.
