Grantor, who had been adjudged insane, conveyed a farm to grantee on condition that the farm would revert to grantor should grantee predecease him. Grantee was killed under circumstances tending to show that he was killed by grantor, who was insane at the time of the death of the grantee. Held, title to the land, under the deed, reverted to grantor upon grantee's death, in spite of the general rule in Missouri that a murderer cannot inherit realty from his victim. Eisenhardt v. Siegel, (Mo. 1938) 119 S. W. (2d) 810.
