Cox, George (1860–1927)

"I am stone broke, ill, and better dead." These few words, scrawled on a piece of paper, were found alongside the dead body of George Cox, 67, in a house in Lincoln-avenue, Oakleigh Melbourne.

Cox was lying fully dressed on an improvised table with his mouth over a gas jet. Cox was well known as an associate of "Squizzy" Taylor, who was shot dead last month. He had a long criminal record.
