Morris POTTER

The following information extracted from the Grayling, Crawford Co., MI Newspaper Avalanche. NOTE: The date at the end of each extract indicates the date of the publication:
-HORRIBLE CRIME AT WOLVERINE.
When Mrs. Morris POTTER who lives on the outskirts of Wolverine was returning home from church last Friday night was attacked by a man in a field which she had to cross to reach her home. She made several attempts to get away but all in vain as her assailant was too strong for her. In the struggle her underclothing was completely torn off from her and she sustained several injuries.
She was so badly beaten that her face was almost unrecognizable the next morning.
She lay for sometime in the snow unconscious, but after regaining consciousness managed to get home, but was unable to speak until the next day, when she was able to tell that the miscreant was Wm. H. SINGER, a boy of fifteen years who lives in Wolverine.
Marshal PETERSON was called to the scene of action and found rubber eraser with the initials carved on it W. H. s., a small picture of Mrs. J. HILLIER and Miss Nina WELCOME, together with two buttons which she tore from his coat in the struggle.
Mrs. POTTER is in a very serious condition owing to the fact that the stork is soon to visit.
When it was brought to light that young SINGER was the lad that had committed such a crime people could hardly believe that a boy of this age would do such a horrible thing, but after Sheriff CLUTE arrested him he acknowledged his guilt and also that a few night before he had attempted a similar attack on Miss May GOODMAN, a young lady living on the east side of town. - Otsego County Times. (25 Mar 1909)
