Judell, Maurice W. (1846–1900)

Mr. Maurice Judell, of the firm of Judell & Co., Orroroo, and for some years manager of the Import Company in this town, died suddenly last night. He was apparently in good health when he retired to bed at the Railway Hotel. As he had not left his room by midday, and did reply to questions, the door was forced open, and the deceased was found in bed. An inquest was held this afternoon. Medical testimony was given to the effect that the apparent cause of death was an overdose of chloral hydrate. A post-mortem examination will be made tomorrow. Deceased complained of neuralgia on Saturday night and it is supposed that he took a drug to deaden the pain. He had returned from Europe only about two months. He resided here until about three years ago, when he left for Western Australia, and he was here on a visit. Very great regret is expressed at his decease, as Mr. Juddell was highly esteemed.
