Tapper, Thomas Frederick (1902–1941)

Thomas Frederick Tapper (39), clerk in the employ of the Fremantle Harbor Trust, died at the Fremantle Hospital yesterday morning from a gunshot wound sustained earlier in the day. He was found lying in a garage alongside his parents' home at Westbury-crescent, Bicton, about 5 a.m. Constable Capstick, in charge of the Palmyra police, made inquiries at the dead man's home. Tapper was living with his mother, father and sister in the house at Bicton. He was discovered by his mother with a 22 rifle containing one discharged shell alongside him. Deceased is understood to have suffered a severe break-down last year, necessitating his absence from work.
