Albert Aigner

Albert Aigner is Slain in a Family Disturbance.

Albert Aigner, living ten miles south of Valparaiso, was killed Sunday by his brother Henry Aigner, about 18 years old.

Henry had been with a fishing party over night at the Kankakee river. It is alleged that he came home in a state of intoxication and began abusing his father, who tried to eject from the house, but finding himself unable called upon Albert to help. Albert rendered the required assistance and tehn returned to the house for a coat and hat belonging to Henry. As he came out of the door, it is said, Henry struck him in the temple with a club, fracturing his skull. He died Sunday night.

Henry fled to the woods, where he was found by neighbors Monday in a half crazed condition. The murdered man was 25 years old.
