Thelma Caudle Dies from Bullet Wound
Thelma Caudle, the fifteen year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bert Caudle of Lostine, died Saturday noon from a rifle shot wound.
Thelma was walking along a street of Lostine last Wednesday when a rifle bullet from a 22-rifle in the hands of Jesse Phillips struck her and passed through the body. Young Phillips who is fifteen years old maintains that the shot was purely accidental. He has been bound over to the circuit court on the charge of second degree murder.
