Inquest of Miss Lozier.
The adjourned inquest on the body of the late Miss Lozier, met pursuant to adjournment at the village of Acton, Dr. Freeman, the coroner, read the following from Dr Croft of Toronto.
Toronto, July 25th, 1865.
Dear Sir, - Having most carefully examined the viscera sent to me for analysis, I have to report that I have been unable to detect the least trace of any mineral or vegetable poison whatever.
Please to acknowledge the receipt of this report.
I remain, yours truly,
On which the jury give the following verdict:-
We the jurors on the inquest convened to inquire into the cause of the death of the late Matilda Lozier, after hearing the evidence of the Medical witnesses and others, and the conclusive evidence of Professor Croft, are of opinion that the said Matilda Lozier came to her death by natural causes and not from any poison whatever.
This carries out the express testimony of the Coroner and the two Medical witnesses, that there was no evidence of poisoning. There has as yet been nothing done to Lighthart, but we learn that Government have left the matter in the hands of the County Attorney.
