The body of a newly-born child was found Moravian Road in Kingswood.

It was found wrapped up in a piece of sacking, although there were no clues that would lead to any identification.

The medical evidence state that the child had been strangled and had only had a very brief separate existence.

The Coroner's jury returned a verdict of wilful murder against some person or persons unknown.
