The Oregonian – December 27, 1936
SALEM, Dec. 26 (Special) – Robin Reed, professional wrestler, suffering from a self-inflicted bullet wound under the heart, continued to improve at a local hospital, physicians reported today.
Police said Reed apparently fired the bullet after he had been denied the privilege of spending part of Christmas with his 10-year-old daughter. Mrs. Reed and her daughter live in Portland.
The attempted suicide occurred last Tuesday.
