    Croydon Woman's Death 
    • Croydon Woman’s Death

      Inquest adjourned for two months

      The inquest was opened at Croydon yesterday on the body of Mrs. Elizabeth Juliet Ray, 76 a widow, who was found dead at her home in Handcroft Road, West Croydon, on Saturday night.
      Leslie Martin, 32, motor-driver, of Mitcham Road, Croydon, is at present on remand, charged with her murder. He was not present at the inquest, but Chief Inspector Wesley, of Scotland yard, and other detectives were in Court.
      The Coroner, Dr. H.Becher Jackson, told the jury that he would take only brief evidence that day and adjourn the inquest until the termination of the criminal proceedings, and then probably dismiss the jury and witnesses.
      Robert Forbes Pennyfather, an army pensioner, said that he had lived at Mrs. Ray’s house for about 10 years. He left her alone in the house last Saturday in the back sitting room on the ground floor and when he returned at 8.35 p.m., having been absent about an hour, he found the mats in the passage disarranged and the door leading from the passage to the back sitting room bolted on the passage side. He opened the door and found Mrs. Ray lying on her back on the floor, her apron over her face. He called a neighbour and then summoned a policeman, who telephoned for the police surgeon.
      Sir Bernard Spilsbury, who made the post mortem, described the injuries on the body of Mrs. Ray, and said there was evidence that she had made some resistance. Death was caused by shock due to partial asphyxia as a result of external pressure.
      The Coroner adjourned the inquest until after “the probable termination of the criminal proceedings.” It would be resumed, he said, on May 1. The jury and witnesses were discharged.
