Example text

The noose was hovering around Dr Clements’s neck – but he escaped the full pain of justice. Realising his fate, he had taken a massive dose of morphine and the officers found him unconscious in his kitchen. He was taken to Southport Infirmary, but died a few minutes after admission, due to the self-inflicted drug injection. He had left an envelope addressed to ‘Ernest and George’ (his only son and brother-in-law). Inside was a defiant and audacious suicide note, in which he denied his crime to the last; it simply read: To whom it may concern – I can no longer tolerate this diabolical insult to which I have recently been exposed.

His choice was not a woman of substance but old family friend Sara Kathleen Burke, known as Kathleen (or Kathrine), who had known both his previous wives. This bonny, exuberant girl seemed to be the only one who was not wealthy – so perhaps the doc had found true love this time, as she survived over ten years. All the while, Dr Clements had been feathering his own nest, and with a successful practice was able to keep up his accustomed lifestyle, as long as he was reasonably frugal. Around this time he became interested in ‘fringe medicine’ (alternative therapy) and experimented with hydrotherapy and herbalism, investigating the pros-and-cons of accepted Continental practices of giving most medicines by means of suppositories or anal douches.
