Service dying in the Belmont hotel, 230 N. W. 6th avenue, from a bullet in the neck Saturday, arrested a 68-year-old-man at 4;15 p.m. and held him under a first-degree murder charge.” The story further reported that Service had separated from her husband a month earlier, and that under police questioning, La Belle had admitted to the shooting, saying he and service “had made a suicide pact that went awry after he had shot the woman.” Image note: The name “Frank La Belle” is written on the negative and is visible on the right side of the image.
