An Accidental Death
Paul DeNucci Killed by the Accidental Discharge of His Gun
Paul DeNucci, an Italian bottler at Long Branch, was instantly killed on Wednesday by the accidental discharge of his gun. He had driven to Port-au-Peck with his two sons and a friend from the city to hunt for doves. After hunting awhile he got back in the wagon and held the gun between his knees with the muzzle toward his breast. He had forgotten to put the hammer of the gun down. A dog that was in the wagon came in contact with the trigger and the gun was discharged. The entire load entered DeNucci's breast and he died instantly. He leaves a wife and a large family of children. DeNucci wa one of the Long Branch bottlers who were recently indicted for conspiring with Detectives Marriner and Haviland to defeat the ends of justice.
