The Sydney Morning Herald, Thursday 20 November 1919


ARMIDALE, Wednesday.

The inquest in connection with the Cooney Creek tragedy was resumed at Hillgrove this morning.

Dr. Harris, of Armidale, said a lot of force had been used to kill the deceased. He did not think the girl (deceased’s daughter) could have done it.

After a short adjournment the coroner returned an open verdict. The accused girl, Ida Willmott, was then formally brought before the Police Court and discharged.
