THE LARNED EAGLE-OPTIC, 22 November 1901
Obituary of CHARLES M. KINNEY
His Body Brought Home

The body of Chas. M. Kinney, who was killed at Hutchinson Tuesday morning in blowing the safe at the Missouri Pacific depot, was brought home Wednesday night by Constable B. S. Winchester, and delivered to his wife. It was buried in the Larned cemetery Thursday afternoon. There was no doubt about the identification, or that Kinney was killed while engaged in blowing the safe. It is also very certain he was shot by his confederates, though he may have been dead before the bullet was fired into his body. His family which consists of a wife and three children, a boy and two girls, age respectively about twenty, seventeen and sixteen, seem to have been entirely ignorant of the true character of the head of the family, and have the sympathy of the people of this community, although it is now known almost certainly that it was Kinney, with other, who blew up the safe in the Santa Fe depot here about three weeks ago.
