A CAMBER WELL TRAGEDY. An inquest has been held at Camberwell respecting the dcatlis of Elizabeth Stow, aged twenty-two, and her sou, Henry Leonard Stow, aged nine months, who died under painful circum- stances on Saturday morning last, at 214, Albany- road, Camberwell. Walter Stow, a warehouse man, said the deceased woman, who was his sister-in-law, together with her husband and their child, resided with witness at 214, Albany-road. Recently she had been greatly depressed owing to the illness of her husband, but she had never threatened suicide. Witness last saw her alive at 12.15 a.m. on Saturday iast. On rising at 6.30 the same morning he saw his sister-in-law hanging by a rope from the stair banisters. Siie was fully dressed. Witness cut her down, but she was then dead. Thomas Stow, another of the deceased woman, living at the same address, deposed to finding the body of the dead child lying in the bath, covered with water. It was stated that, the husband was too iil to attend the inquiry. From a statement made by him it appeared that his wife went to bed at 2 a.m. on Saturday, when the child was sleeping near to them in a basket used as a cot. The husband went to sleep, and did not hear his wife leave the room. She had appeared ^worried on account of his illness, but her husband had never heard her threaten violence. Dr. Oldneld stated that in the case of the woman death was due to strangulation from hanging, and in the case of the chiid to asphyxiation irom drowning. The jury found that the mother first murdered her child :nid then committed suicide when temporarily insane.
