Grieved over dead Husband Ystrad Widow's Suicide. Mrs. Mary Jones (62), widow, who resided at Tyisha Court, Gelli, Rhondda, committed suicide by cutting her throat with a. table knife on Saturday. Her little. grandson, Walter Toozer, ran for Mrs. Butt, a neighbour, who, upon reachinor the house, was startel to find the deaceased lying on the floor of her bedroom, with a wound in her throat. Dr Costello promptly arrived and pronounced life extinct. Deceased had been in her usual health, and had presented no sui- cidal tendencies. An inquest on the body of deceased was held on Monday by Coroner R. J. Rhys. Evidence was given by deceased's adop- ted son Charles Cox, who said Sunday was the second anniversary of the death of deceased's husband. If anything troubled his foster-mother he was un- aware of it. Mrs. Miriam Toozer, Cardiff, deceased's daughter, said that her mother had spent nearly three weeks with her, and had left last Thursday, saying that she want- ed to go home, as she had not long to live, and would like to die at her house. Dr. Costello said much force must have been used in inflicting the wound. The Coroner remarked that in all prob- ability deceased had been grieving about her husband's death. A verdict of "Suicide whilst of unsound mind" was returned.
