Frederick William Smith was found hanging from a noose attached to a clothes hook behind a door.

He was discovered by his parents after they returned home from a football match.

It was said that there was no suggestion of suicide as he had been happy and healthy and a keen student of wireless and cinematography.

It was noted that the noose had been made expertly as though made by a professional hangman.

Frederick Smith was a schoolboy.
