Theodore Trautvetter's Disappearance From Start to Finish Part VIII


[Warsaw Bulletin, 7 February 1890, page 4]

Theo. Troutvetter wholly dispelled the mystery surrounding his sudden disappearance by returning home last Saturday, accompanied by John Heger, of Pittsburgh, Kan., whither Troutvetter went. Heger was a neighbor of Troutvetter a few years ago; hence Troutvetter's visit. The latter is possessed of his right mind, and is, perhaps, as glad to get back to see his family as they are to see him. The whole affair is a sensation that could have been easily avoided, but since it has terminated to fortuitously no good can come of any criticism.

Editor's Note:

That seems like a truly anti-climatic ending to Trautvetter's disappearance, given some of speculation the newspaper printed in earlier editions. If there's more to the story, I am not aware of it.
