In 1914, Simeon G. Cooney of Bradford, Pa., murdered his wife at a sanitarium in Dansville, N.Y. this day. Mr. Cooney, unperturbed, announced the fact to the clerk. An immediate investigation resulted in the finding of Mrs. Cooney's body in the room assigned the couple on their arrival the past night. She had been hit with a picture and then choked. Mr. and Mrs. Cooney arrived last night, the wife stating that her husband was ill and that she had brought him to the sanitarium for treatment. hey were assigned a room but no record was taken of the man's illness. Superficial inquiries by Dr. Arthur Jackson, head of the sanitarium, indicated that Cooney was suffering from acute mania. He was approximately 40 years of age as was his wife.
