Pauline Mildred Cadwallader was found dead in a wood at Four Ashes near Wolverhampton.

She was a domestic servant and had been missing since the middle of August 1922.

The medical evidence stated that there was nothing to show the cause of death as all the organs had disappeared.

She had vanished after going home for a week. A married daughter of the mistress for whom Pauline Cadwallader worked said that Pauline Cadwallader was in the habit of sometimes going into the fields to read and smoke.

The jury heard that she didn't have any lover or young man but had wanted one.

The Coroner noted that it was evident that after leaving home Pauline Cadwallader had been sleeping out some nights and that it was possible that she had died in her sleep from exhaustion. He said that there didn't appear to be any foul play as there was still money in her pockets.
