  Benjamin E. Dunnick and Mrs. Shultz were instantly killed by a train at a crossing two miles east of Columbus, Ohio, on February 25, 1925. They were in a Ford coupe. Mrs. Schultz had been visiting a daughter in Columbus, Ohio, since February 22. Benjamin was attending court as a juror in Columbus. He was a friend of the Schultz family. He and Clara Shultz intended to be married in the future. They supposedly were talking and did not see the train. The day was blustery and a hight wind. Just as the auto left the tract the train struck the rear end, completely wrecking the car, throwing the care into the air and renting it asunder as if by dynamite, scattering the fragments for a distance of a hundred feet, but one wheel of the coupe was left intact. Both Elroy and Mrs. Shultz were thrown clear of the train. The body of Elroy was picked up seventy feet from the wreckage. His neck and jaw were broken
