Carmel Valley Resident Takes Her Own Life
Apparently despondent over ill health, Mrs. Betty McAllister, 42, of Carmel Valley, took her own life yesterday afternoon when she placed a 30-30 caliber rifle in her mouth and pulled the trigger. A note was found beside her body by Coroner J. A. Cornett and Deputy Sheriff Victor Tibbs which read “This Is a suicide.” Mrs. McAllister had been a valley resident for several years and lived on a farm which adjoins the L. J. Lovett ranch. According to the report from the sheriff’s office, Mrs. Mc Allister’s husband Robert, was in the basement cleaning eggs when he heard a shot. Going up into the house to investigate he found his wife’s body and the suicide note. Neighbors were summoned, who in turn called the sheriff and coroner. Arrangements will be announced later by Paul’s Mortuary.
