      Suicide victim, Emil Krenek, was found after a week's absence from his brother Wesley's home at Jones Creek in a wooded pasture behind his brother's house.  W. L. Cecil, local justice of the peace, pronounced the death as suicide with a 22 rifle.
       
      The sheriff's department in Velasco made the investigation and said the body was found at 5:15 p.m. on Wednesday, April 26, by M.D. Woods of Jones Creek.  Mr. Krenek was 34 years old and was in the habit of leaving for short periods of time, explained the sheriff's department, and his absence since May 19 was not questioned.
       
      Mr. Krenek worked for the Freeport Sulphur Co. on two different occasions -- in 1946 for six months and in 1947 for three months.  Reports are that he was not employed at the time of his death.  He came to Freeport, where he has been living for two and a half years, from Bay City.
       
      He was born in Moulton, Texas December 18, 1914, and served in the U.S. Army four years during the war.  He entered the armed forces May 28, 1941 and was released October 25, 1945.  He was stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas and was in the European theatre for three years.  Mr. Krenek was wounded while overseas.
       
      Services will be in the Freeport Church of Christ Friday, May 28, at 2 p.m. with R. M. Stevens, minister, officiating.  Burial will be at Restwood Memorial Park under the direction of the Freeport funeral home.
       
      Those surviving are his father,  John Krenek of Bay City; step-mother; Mrs. John Krenek; six brothers, Frank of Markham, Texas, Wesley of Jones Creek, Leslie of Clute, Jessie of Masie, Ariz., Adolph of Bay City, and Sanford of Houston; and two sisters, Freda Mae Krenek and Dorothy Krenek, both of Bay City.
