Steele Scrapbook - January 17, 1886


SAULT STE MARIE, Mich., Jan.17—A year ago Silas Coulter, a wealthy farmer living near here, was murdered. Suspicion pointed to his son William, with whom he had not been on good terms for several years, and the young man was arrested and tried for the killing. The trial resulted in the acquittal of the son. Friday night the son at a revival meeting of the Free Methodists professed religion and confessed that he murdered his father. He was arrested.
