Tradeswoman's Death by Drowning. THE CORONER'S INQUIRY. AN OPEN VERDICT. On Friday afternoon last, at the Central Police- station, Barry Dock, Mr E. Ll. Reece, deputy coroner, held an inquiry into the death of Rose Guy, whose body was found on Wednesday morning in last week in the Old Harbour. EVIDENCE OF IDENTIFICATION. Wm Guy, a retired master mariner, living at 52, Redbrink-crescent, Barry Island, identified the body in the mortuary as that of his daughter, Rosina Guy, 37 years of age, who, in conjunction with her sister, had kept a tobacconists' shop at No. 4, Thompson-street, Barry Dock. Witness said he was with deceased on Tuesday evening from 7 30 to 8.30 o'clock, and left her in the shop attending to customer". Deceased had lived on Barry Island, and usually went home at night, closing the shop between 11 o'clock and midnight. Deceased was healthy, and of a cheerful disposition. About the time she would pass the Old Harbour it would have been high tide. Wm Henry Davies and Frederick Huelin spoke to having seen deceased that evening, and noting nothing unusual in her manner. WHEN THE TIDE WAS LOW. Henry Watkins, of 5, Dunraven-street, Barry, said he was going towards the Island at 5*50 on Wednesday morning on his way to work. The tide was out, and as he passed he saw a body lying on the mud at the end of the pitching, about 10 or 15 yards from the road' He at once gave informa- tion to the police. Police-constable Albert Savage said he was called at 6.15, and had the body conveyed to the public mortuary. On it, when examined, he found a purse containing f,2 17s 3d, and there were rings on the fingers. The Coroner Did you find any letters ?-No, air. THE MEDICAL EVIDENCE. Dr E. Treharne said he had examined the body that morning in the mortuary. On the forehead were two bruises, which were not severe ones. They were the only marks of violence on the body, but would not be sufficient to cause unconscious- ness. They were probably caused by a fall before death. He believed death to be due to drowning. This view was accepted by the jury, who, on the directicn of the Coroner, returned a verdict of Found drowned."
