DEATH OF MR. JACK PARR WELL KNOWN CARRATHOOL RESIDENT

Surprise and regret was expressed on Saturday evening, when it became known that Mr. John Thomas Parr, a well-known man in the Riverina, and an old resident of the Carrathool district had died suddenly as the result of poisoning.

According to the police report Mr. Parr had latterly suffered from ill-health, and had gone to Wagga to obtain medical advice. Some time after doing so he again complained of not feeling well and is stated to have threatened to take cyanide. On Saturday evening it is reported that he was seen to put some white substance into a cup and drink it, throwing the balance in the fire-place.

He collapsed, and died almost immediately. The police subsequently recovered the substance from the fire-place, and brought it to Hay where an analysis showed it to be cyanide. The body of deceased was brought to Hay on Sunday for a post mortem, examination, after which it was taken back to Carrathool for interment.

An inquiry into the circumstances of death will be held today (Friday). Mr. Parr who was 51 years of age, spent his boyhood days in Hay and Oxley, at which places his father was a hotel keeper. He chiefly followed the calling of a drover, and was highly esteemed by all with whom he came in contact. He is survived by his wife and a large family. —'Riverine Grazier.'
