Wilfred Hollinrake died from prussic acid poisoning.

He was a solicitor from Eccles.

His widow said that she found him lying flat on his back, having apparently fallen from a chair.

She said that there was some brown-coloured saliva around his mouth.

A lady doctor was called and stated that she thought Wilfred Hollinrake had been dead for some time.

She said that he had never threatened to take his own life and said that their financial position had recently been more stable.
