LEITERS SHOOTING FATAL
William F. Schmidt
A man was shot and killed early Sunday while running from the home of Ryan LAMUNION,
24, 4330 N. Fulton County Road 750 West.
Dead is William F. SCHMIDT, 19, whose last known address was 110-1/2 S. Center St.,
Bremen.
Few details were being released this morning.
Indiana State Police said Schmidt was one of five men wearing ski masks who broke in to
Lamunion’s home just south of Leiters Ford. They beat him and ransacked the home. As they fled,
police said, Lamunion got his rifle and fired one shot at Schmidt, striking him in the back and
killing him. The other four escaped.
Sgt. Bob LAND said the break-in happened about midnight. Lamunion was beaten about the
face and head by one man. His live-in girlfriend, Doris FRY, 25, was held in a different room by
another man as the other three ransacked the home.
Lamunion was taken to Woodlawn Hospital and treated for apparently minor injuries from the
beating mostly bruises and cuts, Land said. He was not jailed.
Land said police have not determined why the men broke into the Lamunion home. “We’re
treating it as a home invasion at this point,” Land said.
“As far as we can determine, there were five suspects total. As to race, four white, one black,”
he said.
Nobody saw a vehicle, Land said, and any transportation the suspects used was parked away
from the home. A county snow plow cleaned the way for police and emergency vehicles as they
went to the scene.
Land said police weren’t immediately able to tell if anything was stolen during the incident.
State police ask anyone with information about the shooting to call them. - - - -

something, you knew it had been very well thought out. He really looked out for the taxpayers of
the county. He had a good feel for what people in the county thought.”
Said Myers, “He’s been a good friend. I’ve known him since I moved here in 1936. I’ve
never heard anyone say a bad word about him.”

DEMOCRAT LEADER JUDY BURTON DIES
Julia Ann (Judy) BURTON, 77, long-rime Rochester resident well-known in the state for her
Democratic party leadership, died at 10:05 p.m. Friday at the Carmel Care Center in Carmel.
Long active in Democratic party affairs, she was vice chairman of the Indiana Democratic
Central Committee from 1968 to 1974 and chairperson of the Indiana Women’s Federation. For
almost 20 years she was Fifth District Democratic vice chairman and also directed the Fulton
County campaigns of U.S. Senators Vance HARTKE and Birch BAYH, Governors Roger
BRANIGAN and Evan BAYH as well as other Democratic candidates for state office.
Mrs. Burton served nine years as a member of the Indiana State Fair Commission, a position
from which she retired last August. She also had owned and operated the Fulton County Beverage
Co. in Rochester.
Born March 13, 1922, in Missouri, she was the daughter of Elmer and Fay GORDON of
Rochester. A graduate of Rochester High School, she also attended Indiana University.
Her first marriage was to Joseph GILBERT, who was killed during a kamikaze attack on his
ship during the Battle of Leyte in World War II. Her second marriage was to Bryce BURTON.
Locally, Mrs. Burton for many years headed the March of Dimes fund drive and was active in
Girl Scouts. She was a member of the American Legion Women’s Auxiliary. From her home at
the headwaters of Lake Manitou, she was a devoted bird watcher and long-time conservationist
and wildlife advocate.
Gov. Frank O’BANNON, who had reappointed her to the State Fair Commission, said today
“Judy has been a friend for more than 25 years. Her leadership and valued service in her
community and our state will be sadly missed. My wife Judy and I - and the entire state - have
lost a real friend. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and many friends whose lives she
tirelessly worked to make better.”
Former Indiana Democratic party chairman Gordon St. ANGELO, with whom Mrs.Burton
worked closely, said that Mrs. Burton was one of the first women to take a statewide leadership
role in the party and credited her with efficiently organizing women’s activities and developing
others in leadership roles.
“Judy was very easy to work with, very energetic,” said St. Angelo. “She was ahead of her
time. She brought a lot of ingenuity to the position. In those days it was difficult for a woman to
have any position of authority and she always had an air of authority about her. She always made
arrangements that her voice would be heard.”
Mrs. Burton was an early booster of former Sen. Birch Bayh and of his son, Evan, Indiana
governor and now Indiana’s junior senator.
When Birch Bayh was running for the Democratic presidential nomination, she campaigned
for him in Iowa and New Hampshire.
Said Sen. Evan Bayh today, “Judy Burton is someone I have known since I was a young
boy. She was a generous, caring person, involved in her community and dedicated to making it a
better place. Judy is someone we will miss a great deal.”
Robert PETERSON, Rochester attorney, chairman of Fifth District and Fulton County
Democratic Central Committees, a former state senator and candidate for lieutenant governor, said
“Judy always was very kind and helpful to me in my campaigns.” He added: “She gave a
presence of Fulton County and Rochester to the state Democratic party and to the state of Indiana.
A vigorous and determined political person, she was adept at working out different points of view
among individuals and was an excellent fundraiser.”
Mrs.Burton is survived by six daughters, Ann (Steve) FURNIVALL, Rochester; Linda (Mike)
HATCH, Redington Shores, Fla.; Nanci (Larry) CUMMINGS, Crawfordsville; Kathy BURTON,
Sonoma, Cal.; Christine “Susie” (Jeff) ARNOLD, Indianapolis, and Rebecca BURTON, Carmel;
