Valley Mystery

Valley Mystery. - "Bubbles", a diminutive fox terrier, was the clue that led to the identification of the body of May Condon (23), whose body was found in the railway cutting behind Foy and Gibson's old premises in the Valley, Brisbane. All indications point to the dog, the woman's inseparable companion, having stood guard over his dead mistress for three days, when weakened by starvation, he made his way back to the residential where she had lived. At first it was thought that the woman was the victim of foul play, but a post-mortem examination showed no marks of violence, nor suggested any cause of death. Until the Government Analyst's report on his analysis of the contents of the stomach is received the Government Pathologist (Dr. Derrick) will not furnish a certificate of death.
