THE HILLGROVE TRAGEDY.

ARMIDALE, Saturday.

The inquiry, regarding the death of Mrs. Willmott, whose body was found under a tree near her residence, was resumed at Hillgrove to-day before the Coroner, Mr. W. Morgan. Clara Cameron, living at Wollomombi, stated that early on Friday morning, the 7th inst., she and her husband called at Willmott’s house. When she first saw Ida Willmott the latter was not crying, and seemed calm. The girl asked Mrs. Cameron to get her clothes, and she dressed herself, leaving Mrs. Cameron and her husband in the front room. The body could be seen from the room where the girl dressed her hair.
