Society Lady's Death. SUPPRESSED SHOOTING MYSTERY. -4 The London Evening News gives details of a supressed inquest, a shooting mys- tery of great interest, the victim being an American society lady of considerable beauty, who whilst living in Mayfair was found shot. The inquest was held at St. Pancras Coroner's Court on May 19th, and no account appeared in the public press, although the inquest was held in open court and reporters were present. The facts of the case, according to the "Lon- don Evening News," are as-follows :—The lady on whom the inquest was held was Mrs Agnes Ruiz, an actress, whose name figured in a millionaire's divorce suit in 1908. Shortly after this case Mrs Ruiz was herself divorced by her husband, Mr Antonio a Ruiz, a former member of the Cuban Legation in Washington. Dressed always in the height.of fashion, she made a striking figure in New York society. Whilst riding in the Central Park her horse one day became unmanageable. A millionaire, well-known both in America and England, came to her assistance, and thus began an acquaintance which lasted until within a few weeks of her death. Mrs Ruiz came over to London at the beginning of the present season and took a house in Grosvenor-street, the most fashionable part of Mayfair, her servants including two French maids, a butler, a footman, page, cook, and two housemaids. She led a somewhat retired life, the principal caller being her mil- lionaire friend. Early in May the visits of the millionaire ceased, and Mrs Ruiz became irri- table and depressed. She ate little, and became in such a low state of health that a doctor was summoned. It was announced that she was suffering from a heart affection. In the second week in May Mrs Ruiz took to her bed. On Sunday, May 16th, a shot was heard in her bed- room, and Mrs Ruiz was found dangerously wounded with a revolver lying by her side. She died the same evening in a nursing home.
