Sunstroke on Jubilee Day

Post by Karen on Thu 28 Jul 2011 - 9:45

SUNSTROKE ON JUBILEE DAY - ITS RESULT.

This morning, Mr. Wynne Baxter held an inquest at the Foresters' Arms, Bromley, on the body of James William Ricketts, aged 17, a butcher, late of Bownton-road. The father of deceased deposed that his son went to the West-end on Jubilee Day and got crushed among the crowd. Since that time he appeared to be very strange in his manner. He was taken to a dispensary, and the doctor told witness that his son had had a sunstroke. The following Thursday witness went to deceased's bedroom for the purpose of awakening him, when he was alarmed to find the door locked and the window fastened. On bursting open the door he found deceased lying on the bed in a pool of blood, with a razor by his side. There was a terrible gash in his throat, and deceased was quite dead. - The Jury returned a verdict of "Suicide whilst of unsound mind."
