Robert Sego

October 17 1979

Age 40, Mesquite (Dallas suburb)

Comment: we often hear anecdotal stories of someone from decades ago
being arrested for "public lewdness," and their name appearing in a
newspaper, resulting in suicide. This is a real example.

Below, the article Robert Sego never saw, but the threat of it appearing drove him to suicide.
It ran on the front page of the October 17th, 1979 issue of the Mesquite Daily News.
I thank the Mesquite Public Library, Genealogy Services Department for providing it.
