Olinda Lardelle was found dead at the bottom of the cliffs between Ecclesbourne Glen and Fairlight Glen.

She had lived with her sister in Tonbridge for some time but had gone to Hastings some weeks before to recuperate her health which was far from good. She had stayed at a place on Caroline Place in Hastings but on Monday 10 July 1905 had mysteriously disappeared.

Her decomposed body was later found on Monday 24 July at the bottom of the cliffs.
