SUICIDE OF A PRISONER. At the Hammersmith Police-court, on Saturday, the magistrate received information of the suicide of a foreigner named Le Roy de Sainte Croix, while on his way from Belgium to that court, under warrants of extradition for fraud and forgery. A few days previously the police attended at the court with the prosecutor, who was also a foreigner, and gave de- tails of the charge. It appeared that the deceased had been residing in Wood-lane, Shepherd's-bush, and answered an advertisement which had been in- serted by the prosecutor, who wished for a situation in an English family. The prosecutor had an interview with the prisoner, who engaged him as secretary, and represented that he was librarian at the British Museum, and was engaged on works of art. In conse- quence of those representations the prosecutor was induced to part with money and bonds of con- siderable value. The prosecutor had occasion to leave this country for a time, and on returning to Shep herd's-bush he found that the accused had disappeared, taking with him all his clothes, which he bad left with him. The case was placed in the hands of the police, and the accused was traced to Belgium, where he was apprehended. It also transpired in the course of the investigation that the accused had been committed for trial in another case, but failed to surrender. After the completion of the forms in the case of extradition, the accused was handed over to Inspector Morgan, of the X Division, who went over to receive him, and it was stated that while in mid-channel he succeeded in jumping overboard, and was drowned. It was alleged that the prosecutor had been nearly ruined by his acquaintance with the accused.
