Man Cuts His Own Throat

Post by Karen on Thu 21 Jul 2011 - 22:37

HORRIBLE SUICIDE.

On Saturday morning Mr. George Collier held an inquest, at the London hospital, respecting the death of Robert Gunton, aged 34, a labourer, lately residing at 31, Quay-street, Bethnal-green. The widow of deceased deposed that on the 17th inst. her husband went to the table drawer and took out a knife. He sharpened it on the poker, and in answer to a question said he was going to cut a piece of wood. He again sharpened the knife on the window sill. He then entered the kitchen and commenced sawing his throat. She called for assistance, when her husband ran into the street, cutting at his throat all the time. A woman stood by and said, "Good God! He will have his head from his body." Deceased then fell to the ground, and a young man named Carroll picked him up. As he did so the knife fell from his hand. He had been on the drink three weeks, but previous to that he had been a teetotaller for three months. On the day in question he was perfectly sober. William Carroll, a brass moulder, of 24, Quay-street, said he put Gunton on to a truck, and conveyed him to the London hospital, but he died before they arrived there. Mr. T. Nash Thomas, house-surgeon at the London hospital, said the incised wound extended from ear to ear, and the arteries on the left side were divided. The jury returned a verdict of "Suicide whilst of unsound mind."
