James Dillon was found dead in his camp by Robert Burley, an employee on Hill's Proprietary Mines. The deceased, who occupied alone
a camp situated about midway between the township of Murrin Murrin and Hill's Proprietary Mines, was last seen alive on the evening of Monday, 23rd. Since then, his absence from the town had not been seriously noticed until just before the time the body was found, when one of his fellow boarders declared his intention of walking to Dillon's camp to see if he was at home.  
Pending the inquest proceedings, the deceased had retired to his bed undressed and his position when found would seem to indicate that he passed away quietly in his sleep.

The deceased was buried by Arthur H Werthenner.  Witnesses present at the burial were Robert Burley and Police Constable James McNamara (Regimental number 186) of Murrin Murrin.

A plumber by trade, Dillon had arrived in Western Australia some fourteen years before from Fitzroy, Victoria, where he carried on the business of his trade.
