95 years ago today - Jun 30, 1928

The death of ex-governor John C. Cutler from a self-inflicted gunshot. He declined the First Presidency's call in 1887 to become a counselor in the Presiding Bishopric. The Bishopric's second counselor now describes Cutler as "one of the Church Officers," apparently because he has been an auditor of the general church funds. Utah's chief executive from 1905 to 1909, Cutler is the only Utah governor to commit suicide.
