Surnames: Monts, Hancock
Am looking for any newspaper articles concerning the death of Delos Monts, who owned his own gas station and was robbed and murdered. I don't know the exact date, but have March of 1970. He was married to Clara Hancock Monts and lived in Streator most of his life. Any help would sure be appreciated.
