DAN SLINKEY Suicided By Taking Morphine
It took 3 suicidal attempts before Daniel Slinkey of Sausalito succeeded in ending his earthly existence. At 2 different times during the past year or two, he attempted drowning, but was as often rescued. Last Thursday strong drink got him into trouble, and he took a dose of morphine which soon ended his troubles.
Coroner Eden was notified and he held an inquest. The jury found that death was the result of a suicidal act.
