P.C. Brown

Post by Karen on Fri 29 Jul 2011 - 10:39

Yesterday Richard Brown, a policeman from Hunter-street police-station, was lying dead at St. George's hospital, through having shot himself with a six-chamber revolver in Hyde-park on Friday. Owing to having refused to go on duty on Sunday last he was called on to resign, and this preyed on his mind. He died about two hours after his admission.

N.B. This means that Police-constable Brown refused to go on duty on Sunday November 11, 1888 and was forced to resign. I can't help but wonder just why P.C. Brown refused to go on duty on November 11 - just 2 days after Mary Jane Kelly's murder. I guess the answer will remain another mystery.

Coroner John Troutbeck opened the inquiry respecting the death of Police-constable Richard Brown, who committed suicide on November 16, 1888 in Hyde Park:

SUICIDE OF AN EX-POLICEMAN IN HYDE PARK.

Mr. Troutbeck held an inquiry at St. George's hospital, on Monday, into the circumstances attending the death of Richard Brown, aged 36, until recently a constable in the Metropolitan police, stationed in the E division at Hunter-street, who committed suicide by shooting himself with a revolver in Hyde-park on the 16th inst. Mr. L.S. Torre, of 3, Percy-square, King's-cross, said he had known the deceased about 10 years, and last saw him alive on Tuesday the 13th, when he was at witness's house. He then seemed rather despondent, but complained of no trouble. He did say he had resigned his situation in the police force, and added that he was going either to Mexico or to Africa. He was a sober, steady man, and said he had saved about 130 pounds. With the exception of witness, who was his second uncle, he had no relations. Witness complained that because one of his cards was found upon the deceased it had been reported that he (witness) had committed suicide. The coroner said no doubt the Press would rectify the error. Inspector Austin Askew, of Hunter-street police-station, said that the deceased was guilty of a slight breach of discipline, and with others appeared before the Assistant-commissioner, who allowed him to resign in order that he might preserve his testimonials, and he left the service on Tuesday. Mr. F.W. Parker, house-surgeon, stated that the unfortunate man died three hours after his admission to the hospital, the bullet having entered his mouth and penetrated his brain. The jury returned a verdict of "Suicide during temporary insanity."
