The enquiry upon the body of Aaron Sherritt was continued at the local Police Court this morning, before a Jury of 12.
The evidence given on the previous day having been read over to the Jury, the examination of Mrs. Ellen Barry was proceeded with.
The following information comes from the evidence of Henry Armstrong who had been one of the constables stationed with Aaron Sherritt the night he was murdered. It concerns the events leading up to the murder that may have played a role in Aaron’s death, and follows the narrative through the murder with the occasional detour. These are merely extracts from the evidence, rather than the evidence in its entirety in order to keep it as focused as possible on the subject of Aaron Sherritt.
