Unsolved Murders

Rosalie Davey

Rosalie Davey died from an illegal operation.

Her post-mortem concluded that an illegal operation had been performed but the police were unable to determine who had carried it out.

At her inquest the Coroner said that the evidence given by her mother was most unsatisfactory, saying that he thought that she knew a great deal more than she had admitted. He said that her behaviour was deserving of the most severe censure for not sending for a medical man at an earlier date.
