February 7, 1898, Waterloo Daily Courier: W. H. Schroeder Dies. Summons Comes Quickly. While Walking on the Street He Falls a Victim to Heart Disease. —funeral Tomorrow. Wm. H. Schroeder died this morning of heart disease. The end came with a suddeness that was a great shock to his many friends and acquaintances. Mr. Schroeder had eaten his breakfast and about 8 o'clock started out to a neighbors on an errand. He seemed to feel remarkably well as he left the house, but he had gone scarcely more than half a block when the attack must have seized him. At about 8:15 he was found lying in the snow where he had fallen, by Mr. Carmichael, who lifted him up and helped him back to the house. Here restoratives were applied and for a few moments he seemed to improve. A physician was summoned but before his arrival Mr. Schroeder suffered another attack and death resulted at 8:30. Mr. Schroeder was born in Germany 43 years ago. He came to this country when he was a boy. For many years he lived in Spring Creek township. About 8 years ago he moved to Waterloo with his family and started a grocery store on East Fourth street. He didn't succeed well in business, however, and quit some time ago. He leaves besides his mother who is 74 years of age, his wife, a sister and seven children. All but two of the children are at home. The funeral will be held at the home, 113 East Seventh street tomorrow at 1 o'clock conducted by Rev. Geo. Sandrock. The burial will be in the cemetery at Spring Creek.

Notes for EUGENE JOSEPH SCHROEDER:

Chattanooga - News- Free Press, October, 1981

'FEW DOLLARS' CLAIMED AS MOTIVE IN KILLING OF EUGENE SCHROEDER

by: John Wilson, News-Free Press Staff Writer

Two former Taft Center inmates had a Yellow Cab driver Eugene

Schroeder take them to a remote area of Lakesite "for the sole reason of

killing him for no other purpose but taking the few dollars he had,"

prosecutor Bill Cox told a criminal court jury Wednesday afternoon.

The panel of five women and seven men to hear the death-penalty

case was selected after a day and a half in Judge Russell Hinson's

courtroom at the Justice Building.

The state is asking for the electric chair for Vincent Battice,

20, and Jeffrey wayne Hunnicutt, 19.

The parents of Hunnicutt, who now live in Washington state, and

the widow of cab driver Schroeder sat in the courtroom during the jury

selection.

Attorn ey Rodney Strong, representing Hunnicutt, told the jury that

"we are not nece ssarily saying there was no involvement on Jeffrey's

part."

"You can be pres ent at the scene of a crime and not be guilty of a

criminal offence."

Attorn ey Arthur Wulforst, speaking for Battice, said the defense

disputes the state 's assertion that all evidence in the case will point

to the guilt of the two defendants.

Assistant District Attorney Cox said that cab driver Schroeder wa s

found by police at Lakesite inside his cab "breathing his last breaths."

H e said he died "from four .38-caliber projectiles."

The Prosecutor said that " sometime before 10:30 p.m. he picked up

(at the Trailways bus station) the la st passengers he would ever carry."

He said "were it not for the alert observa tions of residents" and

quick actions by the sheriff's department "the perpet rators would have

escaped."

Prosecutor Cox said that several residents who l ived nearby heard

gunshots and saw two people - "one was black and one was wh ite." Battice

is black and Hunnicutt is white.
