Percy Mawbey, also killed, had a cut through the right ear and a cut, 3in. wide, across the right side of the neck, penetrating the vertebrae column in the neck. His skull was also fractured near the right ear : he has a wound on the back part of his head, a fracture on the crown of his skull, a cut across the back part of his head, and a bruise on the forehead. Miss Kerz, who was found dead, had two bruises extending from the left ear to within an inch of the mouth, and both jawbones were broken. There was a bruise from the right eye extending back to the ear, a wound on the left temple, and the skull was broken in about 5in. over the right ear. The other victims who are still alive are Mrs. Mawbey, who had the back of the skull fractured and head and arms hacked about with a tomahawk, a large gash across the back of the neck, and
several other wounds.
