Mysterious Death of a Husband and Wife

A shocking discovery has just been made at Bilston, Staffordshire, where a man and his wife have been found lying dead in bed, and the corpse of the woman in particular dreadfully discovered.  The neighbourhood is greatly excited, and very many rumours are afloat.  All, however, that appears to be definitely known at present is that the deaths must have occurred as far back as Thursday last.  (Yorkshire Post, December 2nd, 1873)
