On 14 April 1930, there was a murder and suicide a half mile East of Clarksville, Red River County, Texas. W F (William, Wilburn or Wilbur) Hargett, farmer, shot and killed his wife (???) and then shot himself. They were living in the home of Mrs. Alex Parker. Justice of the Peace, Pat B Clark, investigated the tragedy. Who was W F Hargett's wife? I have searched and cannot find the name of the lady who was murdered by W F Hargett. I have in hand, an article from the front page of the Dallas Morning News, Tuesday, April 15, 1930 (Special to The News, CLARKSVILLE, Texas, April 14). Any information concerning this murder and suicide will be most appreciated
