Dr. A. O. Corey, a Fort Scott dentist, was recently charged by his 17-year-old step-daughter with attempting a criminal assault in his office, from which she fled pursued by her father when parties interfered.  He threatened to shoot any one interfering, and when an officer was called to arrest him Corey attempted to escape by jumping out of a rear window of his office (in the second story).  He was killed by the fall.  The man was thought to be laboring under a sudden attack of insanity.  The Kinsley Graphic, Kinsley, Kansas.  November 29, 1895.  Page 3.  © Transcribed by Darren McMannis for the Kansas Council of Genealogical Societies, Inc.
