Uther, Harold John (1882–1913)

Harold John Uther, 30, a clerk, died in Sydney Hospital yesterday from the effects of a bullet wound in the head. Uther, who was married, lived in Balfour-street, Rose Bay. He attended his office on Saturday, ostensibly in good spirits. On Monday, however, he was absent. Yesterday he went to his work at 9 a.m., and at about 9.25 a shot was heard. Going to the lavatory a fellow-clerk found Uther lying down, with a revolver at his side. A traffic constable, who happened to be passing by the office, had the unconscious man taken to Sydney Hospital.
