He entered the house, kissed his wife and grand-daughter, carefully removed everything from his pockets, took off his hat, and went out bareheaded on the back porch. Immediately thereafter his wife heard two shots. Doerffler had shot himself through the right temple, the ball coursing through the brain. This shot must have killed him instantly, and the second shot was fired from the muscular action of the hand. The weapon used was a double action automatic Colt.
