Great mystery surrounds the finding of the charred body of Mrs. C. V. Sheatsley, wife of the pastor at
a Columbus, Ohio, Lutheran church, in a burning furnace in the parsonage, the furnace door being closed.
Dr. Sheatsley. at first charging murder, finally indicated his belief that his wife, stirred by religious fervor,
purged herself of fancied sins through the ordeal of fire, as practiced by the ancients of Europe. He said
knowledge she gained during eight months in India, when he did missionary work there, may have shows
her the ability of human beings, through religious fanaticism, to make their bodies practically Insensible to
pain. A strange episode in the woman’s death was the admission of her sixteen-year-old son, Clarence, that
3to saw his mother's body in the furnace, but said nothing about it until his father found the body. Above
are shown Rev. and Mrs. Sheatsley and their children and the death furnace.
