Are Hanged for the
Murder, of Americans
Brownsville, Tex., May 19. Jose
Puenostrico and Melquaides Chapa,
Mexicans, convicted of the murder of
A. L. Austin and his son, Charles, in
the Mexican border raids last fall,
were hanged today at 2:15 p. m. in
the Cameron county jail.
Austin and his son were captured
by the raiders, carried a short dis
tance from the town and killed. All
the raiders except Ruenestro and
Chapa escaped. Evidence submitted
at the trial last April tended to show
that Buencstro fired the fatal shots,
while Chapa stood guard nearby.
Three American witnesses whose
lives were spared by the bandits,
gave the principal testimony.
The men were tied together,
hanged in a double trap and died
practically at the same time.
They issued a joint statement in
which they thanked the public "for
what they have done for us," and
both declared themselves innocent.
One hundred civil peace officers
and Thirty-five United States cavalry
men guarded the jail yard.
