Obit Look-up, Sep. 1945, August SAMUELSON, Murdered?

Classification: Query
Surnames: SAMUELSON
I'm hoping someone can help me find a lost ancestor. His full name according to Swedish records was, August Martin Hilarius SAMUELSON, but he also used Gus or Gust. He was born in Sweden on Jan. 21, 1889. He immigrated to the US in 1907. He died Sep., 30, 1945 according to family lore. He was supposedly murdered but I don't have any additional information. I do know that he lived in Bennett Township, Douglas County, Wisconsin in 1917, 1920 & 1930 according to census records and the draft registration. He was a farmer but loved to gamble and that may have had something to do with his murder. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I was hoping for an obituary or an article regarding his murder.
