"Frat" Brothers Scout Talk of Suicide.

While police and University of Chicago authorities yesterday wavered between a theory of accident and suicide in explanation of the shooting to death of John B. Minahan, 21 years old student, in Alpha Tau Omega chapterhouse, 5735 Woodlawn avenue, the lad’s father, Dr. John R. Minahan, was hurrying from his home at Green Bay, Wis., to take charge of the body.
