    • Aurora Sergeant Commits Suicide

      As Aurora soldier, Sgt. George C. Smith, died Monday in Germany of an apparently self inflicted gunshot wound, the U.S. Seventh Army announced.

      Smith's address was given as 1791 Beeler St.

      According to an Associated Press report, Sgt. Smith was found in the bathroom of his quarters, at Vaihingen, near Stuttgart. He died 15 minutes later. The reason for the act is undetermined.

      The sergeant is survived by his wife and two daughters.
