CROOKWELL.
(From our Correspondent.)
INQUEST. — An inquest was held on the 9th inst. by W. S. Gunn, at the residence of deceased, upon the circumstances connected with the death of Patrick Dooley senior, aged 67 years, who died on Monday morning, the 8th inst. Mrs. Dooley was examined, and stated that her husband had been away about eight days in Goulburn, leaving here on the 28th December. He returned on Friday morning, the 5th inst., and went tobed as usual. Next day he complained of a pain in his head, and upon examination she found two cuts and some bruises on the face, which deceased stated were caused by a fall on the road in getting down from John Wray’s waggon, and going to his brother, Joseph Wray’s waggon. On Tuesday following deceased got worse and witness went for Mr. Prosser, chemist at Crookwell. Deceased then appeared to be progressing favorably until Sunday when he commenced to sink, and died on Monday morning at 2.
John Wray upon examination stated that he had deceased on his waggon as previously mentioned. On Thursday they parted company and again met deceased the next day on Siggs’ Hill. He asked Dooley where he had been and he said he had camped about there. Witness was cross-examined by several of the jurors, but his evidence was not very clear. Dr. Gentle held a post-mortem examination and found a couple of superficial scalp wounds and also the face much bruised.
On opening the brain a large effusion of serum was found which was sufficient to cause death, and he was of opinion that deceased died from serous appoplexy accelerated by alcohol.
A verdict in accordance with the medical testimony was given.
