CIP 20.12.1884: On Tuesday afternoon. Mr. H. Gotobed, coroner, held an inquest at the Prince of Wales, Gwydir-street, touching the death of the wife of Alfred M. Stapley, a non-collegiatc student, living at 112, Gwydir-street.—lt appeared that the deceased, who is about twenty-nine years of age, was not a very strong woman, and on the previous Tuesday night she was not well. On Wednesday morning she did not get up and on that and the two following days she remained about the same. On Saturday she got up about noon, and appeared worse. She was about during the day, but at night the servant wanting to find her could not discover her anywhere in the house. Eventually, she was found in a garden, sitting on a cushion in her dressing gown. Upon her husband asking her to go into the house she went with him, but would not say why she had gone out, she on different occasions acting in a peculiar manner. Eventually, she retired to bed with her husband, but upon the servant going into the room on Sunday morning to awaken them, she noticed that deceased’s face was very black, and one side of it was under the pillow. Medical assistance was at once sent for, but the deceased was found to be quite dead, the cause of death being suffocation produced by her apparently fainting and falling against the pillow, from which she evidently could not raise herself.— The jury returned a verdict of “Accidental death.”
