Leslie Williams, aged »Z, electrician, of * Goulburn, New South Wales, whose mo tor car was found abandoned by tin* roadside on Sunday morning, is no near or solution. Further investigations were made by the police to-day, and a close exam ination of the car indicated a struggle may have taken place in the rear, where bloodstains were found. The police ( are now inclined to the theory that Wil- j liauis was murdered and the body thrown into the river. .

Death, said the doctor at the ir quest, was, in his opinion due to the man's thought that he was being Mangel, and his heart accordingly failed.
