The body of a newly-born child was found in a barrel behind a house.

It had been strangled with something like a soft brad bandage such as a handkerchief and was quite naked.

The yard had access from a footpath which led to the adjoining Wilkinson Sanatorium.

The doctor stated that the child had lived for at least 5 minutes.
