We continue our discussion of the 1921 Kansas City death of Henry Goldenstein with the second and last mention of his death in his local newspaper: the Golden [Illinois] New Era. The newspaper account indicated that the Adams County, Illinois, doctors determined that Henry’s body showed no evidence of a gunshot wound but there apparently was evidence of blunt force trama to the head.
Henry’s death certificate on file at the Missouri State Archives indicates he died by a gunshot wound, so apparently the official cause of death was never changed by local coroner. There is no notation that there is an amended death certificate.
Stay tuned. The Goldenstein family wasn’t done yet.
