'Starved To Death' Were Last Words

The Coroner, Mr. F. C. P. Keane, yesterday found that Leo Signa Day, 60, found dead in his hut at Russell Hill, had died of inanition between December 14 and January 3.

Day's body was found on January 3 in an advanced state of decomposition.

There were chalk marks on the wall and the words "starved to death, nine days only water."

Senior Constable Darcy Joseph Sloan said that in answer to a complaint about a strong smell coming from Day's hut, he and Constable Heugh had investigated and found the putrified remains of a body, later identified as Day.

The body was identified by Henry Charles Faull, 61-year-old watchman, and neighbour of Day.

He said he had last seen Day riding a cycle along the Duntroon road on December 14.

Prior to that, Day had told him he was going to Wollongong for Christmas.

Faull said he did not take any notice of not seeing Day about. He thought he had gone away.

The Senior Commonwealth Medical Officer, Dr. Louis John Wienholt, said he had conducted a post-mortem on the remains of a body on January 3. There had been no bone injury. Decomposition had apparently been accelerated by the temperature and rodent and insect life.

While another source had Lavina's death as 1968, the Death and Funeral Notices from The Canberra Times, 3 December 1947, tells a different story...one which I feel is far more reliable.
DEATHS
FAULL--At Canberra Community Hospital, Lavina May Faull, dearly loved wife of Henry Charles Faull and loving mother of Isabelle, Joyce (Mrs Tilling), Nola (Mrs Hahn) and Shirley, aged 53. At rest.

FUNERALS

Also, despite her death being in late 1947, a Probate Jurisdiction notice appeared in The Canberra Times on 8 June 1954 that Probate be granted to Henry Charles Faull (her husband). That's over six years later. By the way...her last will and testament was dated 24 June 1946.
