The Franklin Democrat
Mrs. Myrtle Bright was burned to death by the explosion of a gasoline stove at Fairland Saturday morning. Her clothing was entirely burned off, and her body and flesh were roasted. She was alone at the time of the mishap. She had been having domestic trouble, and had threatened to commit suicide. Some of her friends think she chose this as a means for taking her life. She was thirty-three years old and the mother of one child. Mrs. Bright was the daughter of J. B. Plymate, a leading citizen of Fairland.
