Lewis Henry Salmon was found dead in his shop at Bishops Road in Paddington.

He had been gagged and bound.

The pathologist said that the gag had accelerated death which was due to injuries and asphyxiation.

The police offered a reward regarding where Lewis Salmon had been taken by a taxi driver when he had been picked up at 4pm that day at the Great Western Railway Station.

A man said that at 4.15pm he had been walking by Paddington Station when he had noticed a man in khaki, apparently an officer, walking up Bishops Road. He said that he saw the man enter Lewis Salmon's shop and then heard a shuffling sound coming from the shop, but no cry and could not see inside.
