Atkins, Richard G. (Unknown - June 20, 1951)
Ex-Game Official Commits Suicide
Douglas Budget - June 21, 1951Richard G. "Dick" Atkins, former district game warden for central Wyoming, apparently committed suicide yesterday afternoon at Izaak Walton park west of Casper. His body was found about 6:45 p.m. fully clothed on the ground near a picnic table and a 32-20 pistol was found about three feet from the body.
Atkins, who was well known here, was badly crippled in an automobile accident near Sheridan in March, 1949, and had been in constant pain since that time. It was believed this was the reason he took his own life.
He is survived by his wife, three sons and one daughter.
