Tragedy in Brooklyn: Mother Kills Three Children and Herself…
Neighbors See Removal Of Mass Murder Victims. At 6:20 yesterday morning, William Morey of 311 20th Street, Brooklyn, yelled for help… Her farewell note read: “We all have syphilis disease. This is the best way out.” Police say she was deluded. The police department fired Morey in 1938 for drinking – he hasn’t kept a job since then.
