The deceased, who was of strong looking physique, had been employed with a couple of mates prospecting on the old Shamrock line of reef and his non-appearance at work led his companions to visit his camp on the following day only to find him dead at his camp, about a half mile from the Lichberg Hotel. 

Dr. Belgrave made a postmortem examination and found the left ventricle of the heart choked with clotted blood. He had been working in the district for the previous two years, during which time he was described as having a straight, manly demeanor which had gained him many friends.
