Sheriff Vincent Carlson of Henderson County investigated and said the bullet might have been a kicked-up pebble. Find Death of Mrs. Holliday Due to Drug MONMOUTH - An inquest jury convened by John M. Holliday, Warren County coroner, ruled Friday night that the death of Mrs. Lawrence L. Holliday resulted from ingesting of some depressant drug with suicidal intent, with death occurring at Monmouth Hospital at 11 p.m., Friday, Aug. 9. Lawrence L. Holliday, husband of the deceased, testified that on the morning of Aug. 9, he arose at 6:30 and observed his wife asleep on the sofa. He left the house and returned around 9 a.m. at which time he attempted to arouse her and, unable to do so, called a doctor. He further stated that his wife had threatened several times within the last year to take her own life and he told the attending physician that a bottle containing phenobarbitol tablets was missing. Dr. D. W. Taylor was next to relate the events which transpired before death occurred at 11 o'clock that night. He stated upon viewing the woman that her breathing was normal, blood pressure and heart were also normal but he was unable to arouse her. He reported calling an ambulance and told of routine administrations during the day and Mrs. Holliday was thought to be progressing normally although she did not regain consciousness. Dr. Taylor stated that symptoms led him to believe that death was not due to natural causes, and therefore he sent blood samples to a laboratory in Decatur, asking that checks be run for possible traces of phenobarbitol. The report returned from the lab showed no trace of the drug and the doctor stated that therefore he could not be specific as to the drug used, but was certain death resulted from an unknown drug, self-administered. It was on the basis of his testimony the jury returned its verdict. Ever use sour cream as a dressing for slaw?
