Select TIMELINE for details

"Mr George Mudgway an old resident of the Lower Hutt committed suicide yesterday morning by hanging himself. The deceased who was 88 years of age was a widower. He went to bed shortly after 10 o’clock on Tuesday night. At half past four on Wednesday morning he got up and told Mrs Morris his housekeeper that he was going outside. Between six and seven Mr Benjamin Mudgway who lives next door found his father hanging by the neck outside the door of an outhouse. He cut the body down and sent for the Dr Purdy who pronounced life to be extinct. An inquest is to be held. The deceased had been worried over some business in connection with his old age pension but he had not led any one to believe that he intended to rake his life."
